I spent two wonderful weeks at Kalani in the dorms and had the time of my life. Kalani is like what Bali was in the late 70's early 80's, casually elegant, smart creative guests, fabulous hosts in Maria, Bernie, Amanda and Sharon and killer location. Guests were professional types aged to 20 to 65. No place for booze artists or drug bingers, these people are serious surfers, scuba divers, snorkelers who go to bed early so they can enjoy their favourite sports. This place is cool, the real deal!

Very nice, clean and quiet with lots of interesting guests. Also, Bernie and Maria were very accommodating to requests. Would be even better if credit cards can be used as payment methods.
