Nyiur Indah Beach Hotel

Boutique hotel in Pangandaran

Taking centre stage at this low-rise boutique hotel is an artistic multi-level pool complex lined with water-spouting Balinese statues. The sizeable rooms have high-end tile floors and linens, shuttered windows, wood furnishings, wall-mounted flat-screens, day beds, built-in desks and lovely bathrooms. It's more popular with middle-class holidaying Javanese than foreigners, and we think it's all the better for it.

You can often get 20% to 30% discounts online. It has two locations in town. The other is forgettable. This one is wonderful.
