A place where you can get away from the hype and the hassles of the usual Bali tourist areas and experience the charm and beauty of the real Bali.
Pondok Pisces is a simple friendly, relaxed place ... more like a home away from home than a big tourist resort. One of the best accommodation at Balian Beach with tropical style accommodation and consists of traditional thatched roof bungalows set in lush tropical gardens. Natural materials including coconut wood poles, riverstones, slate, bamboo and woven rattan walls all add to the charm and character of the buildings.
Don't expect walled compounds, boom gates and 5 star luxury here. What you can expect is just about the friendliest service possible from some of the friendliest people in the world; luxurious tropical style accommodation in flower filled gardens (no rows of concrete boxes); and delicious, freshly cooked Indonesian and Western food from our restaurant Tom's Garden Café.
And ... best of all, all rooms are just a short 100 meters stroll from the beach.
Located on beautiful Balian beach in Banjar Pengasahan, Desa Lalanglinggah in the Tabanan district of Bali. Whilst Balian beach is just two hours north west of Denpasar international airport, it’s a world away from the hustle and bustle of Kuta and Legian…no vendors, sellers, touters or hair plaiters here, just traditional villagers going about their everyday lives.
Tabanan district is renowned for it’s stunning terraced rice fields overlooking the ocean and the mountain villages where top quality coffee and cloves are farmed. The weather here is milder than the south and there is no need for air-conditioning as refreshing sea breezes keep you cool all year.
Tom Wilson, a visiting artist from Australiadiscovered and fell in love with Balian in 1990. A few years later (1995), he purchased a small piece of land. In '99 he began to build a modest house and 2-storey bungalow. At this time, he was still the only foreigner setting in this isolated bit of Bali paradise.
Tom opened his home as a unique surfer accommodation in 2000, sharing his dream as he had now relocated to Balian Beach permanently. He named it Pondok Pisces after 'pondok' meaning small house and 'pisces' meaning fish.
