Cilik’s Beach Garden – a resort in a garden at the beach

Cilik’s Beach Garden is located at a beach with black sand on Bali’s north coast, 11 miles east of the former Balinese capital of Singaraja. Our village is called Air Sanih (“holy water”). About 9 miles to the east, you can find another village, Tejakula. Ubud is about one and a half hours away and can be reached by the Kintamani – Gunung Batur mountain road. The airport is about three and a half hours away (via the north-south route Singaraja-Bedugul-Denpasar).

Enjoy the tranquil atmosphere in our beachside garden, far away from mass tourism and other patrons; even outside of the resort.

Here on Bali’s north coast, we get more days of sun than in the central and southern parts of the island. The region around Air Sanih has a much more dry climate and long periods without rain with a lot of sunshine make for a pleasant stay. Because we are located directly by the sea, it does not get as hot and the refreshing ocean breeze keeps mosquitos away. Only between the months of April and November, mosquito repellent is a must at sunset. All of our houses are equipped with mosquito nets.

The private beach in front of our resort is always changing with the tides. There are times when the water reaches the anchoring/structure between the sea and CBG. Because of that, we have added two jetties, which provide for a permanent strip of sand at the beachfront of our property. Usually, the ocean here at the north coast is quite calm and swimming is pleasant and safe even when the tide is high. In August, January and February, the surf can be rather strong and swimming might be difficult on certain days.
