Up until a few year’s ago there was nowhere really to stay on Penida. Tourists made day-trips from Lembongan to Penida or, if Balinese, and wanting to head to the famous Peed Temple for a ceremony, came directly from Sanur beach or any other eastern coastal spot.
But let’s rock you on and into 2020, when the youthful Adiwana Hotels and Resorts brand courageously opened their newest resort, Adiwana Warnakali. Four-star luxury with a drop-dead gorgeous, million-dollar sunset view and infinity pool on Bali’s trendy, Robinson Crusoe-style neighbour, Nusa Penida. (Nusa is equal to island in Indonesian, actually ‘land surrounded by water’).
Hovering 20m above sea level, the cliff-resort steps its way up behind the infinity pool and F & B facilities. The luxury bedrooms boast balconies overlooking the Bali Straits and that iconic volcano – Mount Agung. There really is no other image that evokes that many likes on IG – unless it’s of the slightly undressed variety.
Fabulous cocktails sipped at the pool bar, meals on your balcony, luxuriant treatments at the Tejas Spa and a tour of the island, both above and below sea level, you’ll agree with this Penida guest’s FB comment, “ There is no time to be bored in a world as beautiful as this…”
So, all that is left to do is make a booking, pack lightly, get excited and don’t forget to pack your charger!! Penida here we come!
