Pondok Pisang

  • Mendira Village of Karangasem in East Bali

About This Center

Pondok Pisang is located in the Mendira Village of Karangasem in East Bali (near Candidasa). A perfect Bali holiday retreat nestled amongst the coconut trees with a private beach. This area of Bali is isolated from the main tourist areas, and the sea is translucent green and calm. Perfect for swimming and snorkeling.

Pondok Pisang has 5 comfortable bungalows that include hot water showers. The bungalows are surrounded by a large tropical garden and all rooms have an ocean view. There is also a large and spacious yoga barn on the first floor, overlooking the ocean for all types of group activities (yoga, meditation, etc.).

Pondok Pisang has its own restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The ingredient for the food comes directly from the surrounding area, including fresh fruit, vegetables and fish. One of our specialties is the “Ikan Pepes,” fish that is spiced then wrapped in banana leaves and grilled. For dessert, our Black Rice Pudding with Coconut Milk and Banana is the house favorite, and for a snack our tasty fried bananas are a perfect match with your tea or coffee.
