Segara Urip Homestay, Typical of Jembrana Rich in Tourist Attractions

If you want to enjoy the real Bali atmosphere, try staying at Segara Urip Homestay. It is located at Banjar Anyar, Air Kuning Village, Jembrana, in the westernmost province of Bali. Segara Urip is a true paradise on earth. Beautiful nature, simple but comfortable rooms, peaceful natural rhythms, and bathrooms towards the sky really blend with nature. So, do not be surprised, Segara Urip Homestay is favored by European tourists that want to stay for a long time.

The location is very strategic, about 6 km south of Negara Town and very close to Gilimanuk Harbor. Domestic tourists wishing to travel to Bali via Gilimanuk Harbor, usually stop here first to enjoy the atmosphere of Bali from another angle. Segara Urip facing the beach offers fishing activities with colorful boats while lifting fish. The atmosphere becomes more beautiful if you watch the fishermen at night with the twinkling lights combined with the stars in the sky.

Segara Urip Homestay uses traditional wooden buildings. They are the house of the Jembrana community of the past, re-appointed and introduced to the current generation. This truly typical Jembrana house is appointed and offered to tourists. Although in the form of a traditional house, the facilities inside are of international standard, such as toilet, beds and others. “We combine traditional houses with modern facilities. Every house has a comfortable veranda,” said the owner, Gede Sudita, not long ago.

There are 20 traditional houses lined up. Each of which has a barrier in the form of a fence made of natural bamboo. The roof is in the form of a tile, where the rooms are equipped with air conditioning but without television. “We do not provide TV in every room because the concept is minimizing tourists from watching TV. That’s because we want the tourists to explore Jembrana. They just sleep here, but for a walk I invite them to see the Jembrana area that is why TV are only installed at restaurant,” said the man who is also a businessman.

Every in-house guest is invited to take out and explore Jembrana by visiting areas from the east end to the west end of Jembrana or according to their choice. They are introduced to the nature and culture of Jembrana. Aside from seeing and being given in-depth information, guests initially wishing to stay for a day can turn into a week. That’s because they are very happy and feel good when living in Jembrana. “I take them for walks by introducing the beaches, mountains, rivers, forests and Jembrana culture that made them feel at home,” he said.

Each house of the Segara Urip Homestay has one room. In terms room type, it has Deluxe and Family Room where the later can be added to kitchen and its room can get additional bed. Your meals are prepared at restaurant with traditional Jembrana specialties, such as moringa and gooseweed vegetable. “I often tell guests, if you travel and come here, you must taste our special menus,” he said.

In-house guests really like the beauty of the beach because it is fantastic. The culture of local community features fishing activities using traditional boat or jukung, ceremonial activities and buffalo racing activities on the black sandy beach. This beach is a place for jockeys to train their buffalo before heading to the prestigious event in Jembrana. From this beach, you can also watch sunrise and sunset, which are sometimes colored by flashes of birds against the sky. “At the end of the sea, you will look the very beautiful Suloko Island. We really want to explore the island, but suddenly there was a pandemic,” said Gede Sudita seriously. (BTN/015)
