Toyabali is a very nice small resort. Private bungalows a very short walk through the lush garden from the main house. Very beautiful pool. It is a short walk across some rocks to get to the main dive site if you go via the shore. Long walk if you go up to the road and then back down. Short walk to the aqua dive shop. The resort can do airport transfers for a good rate as it is a long way from the airport. This is not a big all inclusive kid madness resort. It is a quiet nice, clean friendly small bungalow type resort. Quiet and relaxing with a short walk to excellent dive sites. I would stay again.
The property and facilities are really great. The bungalows are very well appointed, the outdoor bath/toilet is really super. Gardens are also very lovely and well tended. Ibu Made will take care of any needs you might have. The only critique is that the food in the restaurant is not very exciting. It's the same dishes that everyone else does. Well prepared, but not why you come here.
We planned to stay here for the last 5 days of our Bali trip, but we left after 2 nights. It is a beautiful place with a very friendly staff, but there are some things to consider before you go here; * it is very secluded, besides the ocean and diving schools there is literally nothing there. * the villa's are nice, but don't expect real hot water. * the whirlpool is also filled with cold water. * the food is at best some sort of home cooking. Not bad and the price is accordingly, but nothing special. * aging of the pool equipment and garden statues is quite visible. But all in all we still review this resort as very good, because the staff is really going the extra mile for the guests and if you are a diver or you just prefer peaceful surroundings this is a good place to be. …
We stayed here for 7 nights from 18-25 July 2019. The resort has only 5 bungalows and is at beach front. The swimming pool is an infinity pool where you can relax with sufficient deck-chairs for all resort guests. We got the bungalow “Tiffany” which is the nearest one to the pool and comes view a partial sea view. The bungalow comes with an open air shower and a spa jacuzzi tub. The resort own restaurant opens from 7 AM until 9 PM. Breakfast serves from 7-11 AM and is free for all resort guests. Beside breakfast, they also serve kind of Indonesian food and Western food for lunch and dinner. The manager Ibud Madu is a lovely person, who organize and manage the operation. You can also ask her to arrange for a day trip and she would accompany you and being your tour guide. We had a fantastic day tour with her. We have enjoyed our stay there a lot and would come back to Toyabali, when we are the next time in Tulamben again. …
If you are in Tulamben, Toyabali Resort is the place for you. The view from the deck is surreal, and the food and hospitality is amazing. Miss Ibu ensured our stay was memorable. Customize food options to taking care of our transportation and sightseeing tips, no doubt we will visit this place again. And if you are planning a dive, best dive place is few steps away from this resort.
very tranquil resort, comfort room, spacious bathroom, good food - breakfast came with fruit platter and toasted bread, really amazing view - mountain on the back, sunrise sea from the restaurant, the infinity pool style. really good place for relaxing and couple of days getaway. they provided massage service, flippers for snorkeling. too bad wifi didn’t reach my room, and sometimes full length mirror is necessary
Toyabali is an amazing place to stay. We had 4 wonderful days at the hotel. The infinity pool was perfect. With a max of 5 couples made the place feel special. My husband dived for 3 days which was organised by the lady who runs the hotel when we arrived. Nothing was to much for the staff, everything we asked for was provided with a smile. The food was good, we ate most of our meal at the hotel and so reasonably priced. The bungalow the lovely with a fantastic outside shower, we also had our own jacuzzi. The room was clean with a mini bar and fridge and also a safe. Hope to return one day.
Had the best stay at Toyabali. The room was awesome with a beautiful outlook onto the garden and only metres from the infinity pool. Beautiful semi-outdoor private bathroom complete with shower under the stars and a garden (the bath and toilet were under cover). The staff were amazing - so friendly and helpful. They arranged transfers for us to the airport, driver for shorter trips into Amed, in room massages from a local business initiative, and a wonderful day trip to Besakih Mother Temple and the Tirta Gangga water garden. The food was also really nice (it's mostly Balinese, but we found plenty of options to eat there alot of the time during our week long stay). The only downside was the stupid gecko who kept talking to us at night! There isn't much to Tulamben (mostly just hotels, dive shops, restaurants and a few shops) but Toyabali was IDEALLY located for diving the Libery ship wreck (3min walk to dive site and operators). The beach is black pebbles but there was great snorkling right out the front of the hotel and you could walk (or snorkle) to the Liberty from the hotel! Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for diving, snorkling and relaxing :-)…
This place is a hidden treasure. It is very private and is perfect for that couple's scuba diving gettaway. I wish I had planned more time to dive because this is such a beautiful location. Perhaps I will have to return someday!!
Just wow! This place is amazing, yes more expensive than most however the limit of 5 couples only at one time makes this place special and quiet. Fantastic views, great food and service, dive spots on the front door. We will be back as this place is amazing. The best paradise on earth!
