Mule Malu / A Beautiful Boutique Hotel on the Bukit Peninsula in Bali

Mule Malu is a charming boutique hotel nestled into the cliffs above Bingin Beach in the heart of the Bukit Peninsula.

Bali’s Uluwatu area is a surfer’s paradise and having an awesome place to return to after epic surf sessions only makes it that much better. Enter Mule Malu, a charming new hotel only a short walk from Bingin Beach and a short drive away from the other top surf spots of the Bukit: Impossibles, Padang Padang, and Uluwatu, to name a few.

With 11 rooms situated around a vibrant garden and saltwater pool, Mule Malu delivers picture-perfect style at an affordable price. The hotel mixes touches of Indonesian architecture with a minimalist Mediterranean vibe. High thatched roofs and white-washed walls compliment light wood accents and muted colors. All rooms have air-conditioning, private outdoor patios and spacious outdoor bathrooms.

In between surfing and leaning into poolside relaxation, dig into a delicious and healthy breakfast or lunch at the hotel’s on-site cafe. In an effort to keep plastic use to a minimum (yes!), the hotel offers free fresh drinking water on tap for all guests and doesn’t use any single-use plastics such as straws and plastic bottles.

With its peaceful vibes and perfect location, Mule Malu is a fantastic place to stay to explore the best of Bali’s southwest coast.

  1. Hi
    My son is interested in a surf trip.
    A three to four week stay .
    He is 19 and a decent surfer.
    Is this a place that is an option?

    • Hi Tara,

      Mule Malu could potentially be an option, but unfortunately, the logistics of traveling to Bali are complicated right now due to Covid-19. Indonesia has been closed to international tourism for around 18 months (because of Covid), and the opening date has been continually pushed back. That said, I believe Mule Mulu is open with very good rates, so when the borders open, I recommend contacting them directly for rates and reservations. Cheers
