Run by young and energetic owners Ikbal and Noni, Abdi Homestay is the loveliest place to stay in the Harau Valley. Eight adorable thatched bungalows (with mosquito nets and bamboo showers) sit on the edge of verdant rice paddies and lotus ponds, with sheer cliffs forming a dramatic backrop. Ikbal leads day hikes (200,000Rp per person) to the top of the cliffs and surrounding countryside.
Meals include one of the best chicken rendangs you’ll ever have (though you'll need to pre-order). Cooking classes (150,000Rp) include a visit to the market.
