Words from the owners – “This experience is not like any other, Hideout Bali is not some fancy hotel, it is truly an adventurous experience, rustic and authentic right in the middle of Balinese village life. Hideout is a perfect place for long-time travelers, lovers of nature, spiritual-minded people, trekking lovers, backpackers, artists, musicians, and eco-enthusiast to have their own unique Bali experience.”

 

WHERE IS HIDEOUT BALI?

Hideout is located in the Karangasem region, East Bali.

From Canggu, Seminyak, and Kuta, it’s approximately a 2.5-hour drive to get to Hideout Eco Bamboo Homes.

If you happen to be in Ubud, it’s a shorter drive from here that takes around 1.5 hours.

HOW TO GET HERE?

I recommend renting a scooter or a car to make the journey out to East Bali at your own pace.

Don’t feel confident riding a scooter? Another great option for getting around Bali is to hire a private car and a driver for the day and experience all that the island has to offer.

Includes:

  • Experienced Driver
  • Hotel pick-up & drop-off
  • Mineral water
  • Petrol

ARRIVING AT HIDEOUT BALI

As you approach the location on Google maps, you’ll see a parking lot out the front of the property and you’ll know you’re in the right place when you see the bamboo entranceway that reads ‘HIDEOUT.’

Tracey the friendly resident dog will warmly greet you in the parking lot upon arrival and she will lead you down the path towards the bamboo homes.

There is no official reception though one of the staff members will make themselves known to assist you with your check-in and help with your bags.

Chek-in is from 3 pm and check-out is at 11 am.

HIDEOUT ORIGINAL

The original Hideout was the first bamboo home on the property and still remains the most popular!

Sleeping 2 guests, this is the perfect getaway for couples or close friends that want a taste of what it’s like to stay in a bamboo hut for a couple of nights. 

The hut has two floors, on the first floor is a fully equipped kitchen, a cozy living/relaxing area with a hammock private bathroom, and an outdoor shower.

On the second floor, there is a spacious bedroom with a king-size bed and a mosquito net, a unique triangular window with a view of the stream, bean bags for reading a book or relaxing, and traditional Balinese musical instruments.

BEEHIVE

Hideout Beehive is a double-story home with a guesthouse, both of which are uniquely constructed out of bamboo and other natural resources from the land. The Beehive can sleep up to 4 people.

The downstairs area at the Beehive features an outdoor jungle bathroom with hot water, a large living area with a coffee table and chairs, a fully equipped kitchen, an outdoor lounge on the wooden deck, a bamboo seated rope swing, and an infinity pool that overlooks the freshwater stream.

There is also a Bluetooth speaker located in the kitchen to connect an iPod and get some tunes playing to set the mood.

Upstairs features a massive rounded bed complete with pillows, blankets, and mosquito net, an electric keyboard, a sunroof on top of the beehive, and an outdoor bamboo balcony that can be accessed through the hobbit-like door.

The bamboo guesthouse located in the garden next to the pool features a large double bed with a mosquito net, large draping curtains right the way around, a coffee table with chairs, and a hammock.

The guesthouse is the best spot to zen out while listening to the tranquil sounds of the jungle.

LIGHTROOM

Lightroom is yet another beautifully designed eco bamboo home, and the name says it all. Unlike the other homes, Lightroom is not as covered under the canopy of the forest which lets in more natural light to kiss this stunning accommodation.

With just one bedroom, Lightroom is perfect for 2 guests to come and enjoy this little slice of paradise.

The space features a one-story home with a spacious bedroom, a queen-size bed with a mosquito net, a private bathroom, a small kitchenette, and an outdoor bathtub situated in the beautiful garden.

Also in the garden, some other features include a raised wooden deck beneath the palm trees, a boho-style hammock, and a place to have a small bonfire at nighttime.

FALCON

Falcon opened for bookings in 2019 and I was lucky enough to be one of the first guests to stay in this mesmerizing bamboo home.

Set in a secluded luscious garden, Falcon boasts spacious 1-bedroom accommodation with a huge king-size bed, private outdoor bathroom, a kitchenette, and an indoor coffee table and chairs.

There is also a large wooden deck featuring a hot tub jacuzzi, comfy lounge chairs, and a suspended hanging net beneath the palms. It’s a recipe for a good time if you ask me!

HORIZON

Hideout Horizon Bali is the biggest eco bamboo home on the property, sleeping up to 4 guests, and it’s low-key my favorite of them all.

This epic space is more of a playground than an accommodation! Featuring two large beds with mosquito nets on the second level, and a bamboo ramp/slide that connects it to the ground floor.

Horizon is an open design and comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, comfy lounge areas, indoor/outdoor heated plunge pool with a hanging net above, a large outdoor bathroom and shower, and beautiful garden surrounds.

This description doesn’t do it full justice, so I’ll let the photos below do the talking!

COCOON

Cocoon is the latest addition to the Hideout family, and arguably the best. Doors opened for bookings as of July 2021, but be sure to book well in advance due to its popularity.

The way to reach this secluded home-abode is an adventure in itself that will have you wandering across a bridge above the stream and through a bamboo tunnel pathway before arriving at the entrance to the villa.

This single-story bamboo cocoon sleeps 2-guests comfortably, featuring a huge king-size bed with a mosquito net, a comfy lounge at the foot of the bed, a living and dining area all hand-crafted from bamboo furnishings, and an outdoor bathroom with a hot water shower.

Stepping outside, you’ll find a large wooden deck to hang out on, a hot tub jacuzzi, an outdoor bamboo shower, and a ready-made bonfire, all of which overlook a freshwater stream.

The Cocoon has it all, making it suitable for all types of travelers!

HAY HOUSE

Last but not least, and for sure not to be forgotten about, is Hay House.

This tiny little hut is the smallest home on the property which lies on the edge of stunning rice terraces with amazing views. Spending a couple of nights here is a truly unique experience that’s not to be missed.

Hay House features a small and basic 1-bedroom space, fitted with a comfortable queen-size with a mosquito net, a few cushions, hanging shelves, and floor-to-ceiling glass windows right the way around. 

The bathroom is essentially an outhouse and right next to it is an outdoor shower with hot water. Privacy from the local rice farmers during the day isn’t the best at Hay House, so it’s recommended to wear swimmers when showering.

You really are immersed in nature at this little bamboo hut, so be prepared to see a few bugs around the place.

THE BISTRO

Delicious breakfast and coffee are included in the price for whichever accommodation you book, and will be served in the comfort of your bamboo house each morning.

For lunch and dinner, you can order from the on-site bistro and they have a wide selection of Western cuisine and Balinese cuisine to choose from.

Do note lunch and dinner are not included in the price, but not to worry because the menu items are very affordable.

The bistro is open from 8 am to 8 pm and it’s recommended to order your meals two hours in advance.

HIDEOUT EXPERIENCES

Hideout also offers unique experiences during your stay which can be pre-purchased or organized upon arrival.

The experiences you can choose from are the Romantic Package, Professional Photoshoot, and Treat Your Mind & Soul.

See the images below for more information on each package.

 

THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

Hideout is surrounded by the jungle so you can expect many insects, lizards, spiders, frogs, and other animals to be present during your stay. That’s just nature and ya gotta embrace it!

There is WiFi in all the homes, but the connection is not strong. Besides, this is a place where you want to come and relax, immerse yourself in nature, and not be glued to your devices.

Be sure to bring plenty of cash with you as there are no ATM machines nearby. I advise this as you’ll need it to purchase food from the bistro, to pay for entrance fees at the nearby tourist spots, and any other daily expenses you may have.

If you don’t have your own transport when staying here, not to worry as Hideout provides its guests with a free scooter with two helmets so you can explore the area.
