HOW TO GET THERE
To reach Pemuteran by public transport is a bit of a challenge. It is easier to organize a car and driver to pick you up at the airport or your hotel and drive you to Pemuteran. Cost for a pick up from the airport is RP 960.000 for 4 passengers and luggage and RP 1050.000 for a minibus suitable for up to 8 people and luggage. Transport will take approximately 4 hours depending on how busy it is in the south. It is also possible make a day trip with scenic stops along the way for RP 1100.000. Scenic stops can be for instance, at the twin lakes, the Temple Ulun Danu and the Munduk Waterfall.
Route 1 to Villa Semadhi
+/- 4 HOURS
This is the fastest and most scenic route. The start is similar to route 1. At the panoramic view point, situated at the pass of Wanigiri, you turn left, westward, following a road that runs high above the north side of the twin lakes Buyan and Tambligan. The road winds slowly down with beautiful, panoramic views, passing the villages of Munduk (with the Munduk waterfall), Banyuatis (famous for its coffee), Gunungsari, Mayong, Rangdu, and Ringdikit, on to the old market town of Seririt. From here you follow the coastal road to the west to Pemuteran. View in Google maps.
Route 2 to Villa Semadhi
+/- 4 HOURS
The route past Pupuan is a good alternative for the road past Bedugul and Munduk, as that road is becoming more congested due to people visiting lake Bratan. The Pupuan route is also less steep and winding and thus more comfortable. The only downside is that you have to use part of the busy road between Gilimanuk and Denpasar that has all the traffic to and from Java. Around Selemadeg you turn north towards Pupuan and Seririt. This part is very quiet and takes you through some interesting villages and beautiful landscapes. There are several scenic stops with picture perfect rice paddy views. After Seririt you turn west towards Sumberkima and follow the coast road.
Route 3 to Villa Semadhi
+/- 4-5 HOURS
With the route past the south coast heading towards Gilimanuk, you avoid the mountains, but this road has much less scenic quality. You will also be on the road that most trucks between Java and Denpasar take and when it is busy you can be stuck behind a truck for a long time. On this road you will pass Balian Beach that is worth a visit and another surf spot Medewi. You will pass Negara the capital of west Bali. At Gilimanuk the ferry port towards Java you turn back east towards Pemuteran. This part is a lot more quiet and takes you past the Barat National Park.
Route 4 to Villa Semadhi
+/- 5-6 HOURS
From Kuta/Sanur, follow the road to Gianyar. From there travel further north either via Bangli or via Tampaksiring, to Kintamani and lake Batur. Try some of the delicious fresh fruit that is sold from roadside stalls, and have a rest stop at the village of Penelokan to enjoy the wonderful panoramic view on the volcano and the lake of mount Batur. Then travel on to the temple of Penulisan where the road starts winding down with many curves to Kubutambahan at the north coast of Bali. Turn left at Kubutambahan, follow the coastal road that runs via Sangsit (with the Pura Beji temple) to east Singaraja, cross the city of Singaraja with its old, colonial buildings from east to west until you reach the coastal road that leads to the villages of Lovina. Then you continue west, past Banjar (with its famous hot springs and the Buddhist monastry ‘Vihara’), Seririt and Pemuteran. View in Google maps.
