Medewi Beach Inn
Medewi Beach Inn
Only 200 metres from Medewi's surf point, Medewi Beach Inn is a laid-back hotel owned and run by a family who've grown up surfing these waves. The rooms are simple but clean, the staff are wonderful and it's a fantastic place to base yourself for a few weeks.
WHAT'S THE APPEAL?
Medewi Beach Inn is so conveniently located – once you're here you own't need to use any transport other than your feet. A short walk from this hotel are the surf point, board rentals, restaurants, massages, laundry, shops. Life here is chilled, the vibe is friendly so you'll meet other travellers and surfers passing through; central to the hotel is a large restaurant area, which is also a gathering point for friends. Children are very welcome here.
Medewi Beach Inn has super-comfortable beds, and six of the rooms have their own balcony (these ones are our favourite). The rooms are simple and all have their own bathrooms (although most have cold water only). Some rooms have air-con, others have fans (rooms with air-con are Rp50,000 more than fan rooms). Some of the rooms have queen-size beds, others have large twin beds. They're big enough to fit another mattress in, if you're travelling with kids.
The hotel has a new restaurant space that's opened up; it overlooks the local football field (fun to watch games here during the rainy season) and surf movies are shown after dark. Food here is excellent – try the beef rendang.
Medewi Beach Inn is on the road that leads to the beach at Medewi. There are six restaurants within 200 metres of the hotel; Medewi town is a minute's walk away, over the main road. Medewi Beach Inn is a really convenient place to stay, as you won't need any transport while you're here.
