female accommodation medewi

« on: January 30 2011 22:01:00 »


I'm thinking of heading to Medawi sometime this spring.  Husband can't make this trip, so I'm looking up places friendly to solo female travelers.

Looks like there are several options for lodging incl. those listed here:

The page says that Mai Malu is popular with younger surfers.  

Looks nice.  On the other hand, I'm not so young, and am looking for a quiet place.  Not going to meet people or to party.  

Anyone have any experience with how loud or social Mai Malu is?  Glad to hear comments on places suited to solo (and quiet) female traveler.

medewi is a VERY small place but mai malu is a ok hotell.
i didnt like medewi so much i think you will like balian better really chilled nice place..
locals in medewi can be anoying and they almost demand that you buy their t shirts. dont misinterpret me they are friendly and all like the rest of bali bit with the increasing amount of surfers visiting the place they become more like the hagglers of kuta then relaxed medewi locals.. check out balian for sure.
have a nice trip!

medewi is a very calm smooth place. no bar no party really. medewi hotel is often crowded but very nice hotel. the break is amazing. medewi is the best place to surf at high tide and then relax at low

Yes I would have to agree with the other blogger, Balian is a great spot, you could even get a nice beach style house with Pembantu etc, not too expensive, but not as cheap as a losmen... Selamat jalan......
