Beautiful place. However I had not understood that the hotel was actually two different buildings, one on the cliff, with room overlooking the sea (which I got), and another one, about 10 min walk away (once you have climbed the cliff), with the swimming pool. They have a buggy to connect both of them. The part on the cliff offers a great view, and you get to sleep with the sound of waves. The Bingin beach is pretty not not the easiest to swim as the edge is shallow and full of rocks. There is a restaurant on the beach where you can pick your fish and have it grilled in the evenings, which is delicious. Altogether a very pretty and comfy place, and the staff was very helpful. Slightly pricey for Bali.
Excellent accomodation and staff ”
The place was kept very clean, staff was always friendly and helpful, and the owner really gets to know all the guests and makes sure everyone is comfortable and taken care of. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to relax. I had a beach view room apart from the main building but there’s access by golf cart at the top of the hill to drive you over anytime. You can also order food there and it’s good, although pricier than local eateries. Overall I had a wonderful stay and would come back when I visit Uluwatu.
There's mosquito in room but you could request staff there to spray the mosquito repellent for you . Don't really like the open air bathroom as there's lots of mosquito but other than that this is a perfect stay . The managers and staff there are really friendly and helpful
Sal's provided an incredible Bali experience from top to bottom. Myself and the girlfriend had the sea view room and it was everything the pics said it would be. We had a great time watching surfers and talking with reeni, yoga, rio and ketut. Miguel is an awesome dude too. Would recommend this place to anyone that visits Bali any day.
Cozy hotel, warm employees”
The stay was fantastic as the employees made sure that we were welcomed. However, there were 2 nights of power failure which resulted in a very bad night as the heat and the mosquitoes were killing us.
amazing location, worth the extra walk and stairs”
We recently stayed at Sal's and booked a deluxe room on the cliff. These rooms are NOT in the main Sal's resort but rather slightly more remote but well worth the effort. The rooms have an unbelievable view of the surf. Breakfast and drinks are served with a similar view. We didn't have kids on this trip so this room was ideal for us. There is no pool at this site but you can walk back to the main resort and use the facilities there if you want. Don't be put off by the walk or the stairs, it is worth the effort to wake up to that view. Use a torch at night especially after a few drinks!! We thought it was excellent value for money and staff were extremely helpful. Easy to walk down and have a cheap seafood dinner on the beach - heaven!
Fantastic staff. Great location. Great people. Lovely hotel!”
The communal eating area is by far what makes this hotel special - you can meet lots of interesting people every day! The manager - Tiago - is wonderful! Very charming and knows all the best places to recommend when it comes to eating, music, drinking, etc. The hotel is quiet and quaint. Rooms are very clean and authentic. Would absolutely come back again!
special and hidden place for a special weekend”
we loved our stay at Secret Sal. it is trully an hidden gem. the staff was friendly and attentive and the manager Santiago very kind. however cleaninless and overall mantainance should be improved. The beach room are honestly not worth the price you pay. for the same price you can get a much better room at the main Sal secret spot building.
It was ok”
Cute little villas in walking distance to the beach, the host very nice and informative, Staff was friendly too. Rooms were cleaned daily and kept in good condition, but overall everything looks a bit dated and maybe in need of a paint. Food was good, even late at night we could still order something. Pool is small but still very nice, enough for a quick dip before or after the beach.
An absolute gem”
Could not fault Sal's such an amazing place to escape to. Beautiful rooms, amazing pool and great food. Travelled with a 15 month old and all the staff were so lovely with her, will definitely be back to stay.
When you are looking for paradise ”
It was the best hotel of my hole trip. The food, the interior, the owner, manager and staff... There was nothing I didn't like. The perfect place to relax! Clean, charming and good food. You can easily spend 2 days in the hotel without leaving and doing something else. Perfect for Instagram pics, sun bathing, book reading enjoying the food or getting a massage. SIMPLY: one for the books 💙 Thank you all for that wonderful time ! Jo
Could not beat this location. Waking up to hear the waves crashing on the beach below was paradise. The only fault was that the toilet broke, but thats Bali and the staff were very quick to fix it. I would recommend bringing enough cash for your visit as the is no ATM nearby.
Beautiful, quiet retreat”
Sal's is exquisite. Unfortunately, we weren't able to get a beach room despite requesting one well ahead of time which meant the location wasn't what we were looking for. Bingin beach is arguably the biggest disappointment, overcrowded, dirty and a serious stair climb to access. There are much better beaches in Bali. Sal's itself though is stunning, the pool is fantastic, the staff and friendly and helpful and we had some of the best food of our entire trip. If you want peace and quiet, Sal's is great but for a first trip to Bali, not quite what we were after.
Great spot right on cliff overlooking ocean! But room was separate from main reception and pool, about 10min walk away. Room is just bed and bathroom. Could not stay there too long but was perfect for 1night on the water. Will stay again
Amazing place to stay ”
The Hotel has a perfect location just a couple of minutes away from Bingin beach as well as very close by the all others well known beaches as Padang Pandang, Uluwatu, Balangan etc. In the surroundings there are a lot of very well known options for having dinner/ healthy lunches and for sunset. The staff is excellent and very helpful in general and specially Tiago (the manager) who is always looking after all the guests, assisting and giving information about the many places of interest in the area, showing that all the team really care about the guests. The Hotel itself (public areas) has a fantastic atmosphere and the decoration is like a tasteful boho chic where we can really fell relaxed. We book a standard room which is exactly what we saw in the pictures, the only thing that we didn't like in the room was the bathroom as should be more well maintained (it's very hard to keep walls and floor white, but it's mandatory to keep the hotel concept and image) apart from that the room was very nice with everything that we need. The food is amazing, one of the options for breakfast are banana pancakes which are delicious, always served with a plate of fresh fruit and coffee. We just had dinner once (Mie Goreng as main) and we can say that was our preferred Mie Goreng during our entire stay in Bali, really tasteful! We really recommend this Hotel and we will be back for sure to this small paradise on earth! Well done!
This place has such a great relaxed vibe! So sad we couldn't stay longer. After 2 weeks of traveling this was out last stop and was the first place that felt like 'home'. The food here is amazing (if a little more expensive, but totally worth it) the staff are so genuine and just relaxed cool people. Most importantly - the sea view rooms! Man, being able to hear the ocean when you lie in bed was amazing and the beach below is one of the best I have been to. Can't recommend this place enough.
Amazing piece of paradise ”
We loooooved our time at Sals! Such an amazing place to stay, beautiful rooms, pool, facilities, umbrellas, furniture. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Have already recommended to a number of friends and family and we will definitely be coming back again for longer!
A great place for sun and pure relaxation”
The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It is a very good location for reading and relaxation (pool, massage, etc.). Price of local taxis is a little on the high side, but if you rent a scooter you'll have an affordable alternative should you decide to venture out. There are a few locations for eating nearby, including on the beach, where affordable and very tasty fish dishes are to be had. Very enjoyable stay.
Great view and very remote”
We stayed in their cliff side villa, from the looks on the surrounding villas in Binggin Beach I'll have to say Sal has the best views and most luxurious in comparison. It's a bit of a hike up and down the stairs best to just stay put in the villa, it's a bit of a hike to get to the main building where the pool is located. 15-20 mins walk. Very quiet area and a nice break from the husle and buzzle of Kuta/Legian/Ubud area. I would have choose to bring a backpack instead of a big wheel luggage but the staff was very helpful and did not complain. Room is very basic and A/C takes a while to cool. Overall a very nice stay. Will surely come back and take some surf lessons.
Best Beach room in Uluwatu, home away from home”
If you take the beach rooms, they have the best view in Uluwatu to the ocean. It's really astonishing to wake up and see the ocean and the cliffs. Great hospitality, great Manager that cares about the cutomers/visitors. The Design of the rooms/Apartments is really nice to the eye, very comfy. Breakfast is good. The beach is right beyonf the terrace. Great place for Surfers!!! Everything is excellent!
