Villa The Gaya is situated in the village of Kaliasem in central Lovina, with a coconut plantation area to one side and a mix of Balinese and western owned houses to the other. The beach is only 500 meters away, so are shops, bars and restaurants. We are not in a gated tourist complex but you will have a unique opportunity to feel the genuine Balinese way of life and yet be private in the villa grounds. The villa sleeps up to 6 people and is therefore ideal for a large family or a couple of friends on holiday together.
The upstairs of the house has a separate entrance so you can still ‘be private’ if you are more people travelling together. It has a large open-space area with living-room including TV and DVD player, dining-area, bedroom with double bed and own sitting-arrangement. Bathroom with hot/cold water. There are ceiling and floor fans. The living-room sofa transforms into a ¾ bed if you are more than 4 people staying in the house. From the balcony you have a view to the mountains only 3 km away.
Downstairs is a large bedroom with a double bed and A/C, living room with dining table and sofa. Bathroom with hot/cold water. In the kitchen our staff will prepare your breakfast and during the day you can help yourselves to tea and coffee.
There is balcony/terrace on 3 sides of the villa, so you have plenty of places to set and relax outside.
Balinese life is lived outdoors and in our 1400 m2 tropical garden you will have plenty of space to enjoy yourself. In the traditional Balinese pavilion (Bale) you can sit and relax or use our new pool and sundeck with outdoor shower. You will find fruit trees like mango, rambutan, bananas and coconuts, which you are welcome to eat. We also have a large variation of exotic flowers and plants. And not forgetting our fishpond.
Our staff will serve you breakfast every morning and clean the house, pool and garden daily. Should you want any special fruit, drink or food, our staff is ready to get it. You just need to give them money in advance and pay a small fee for transportation. We also have the menus from several restaurants in Lovina and they gladly bring your order to the villa, should you just want to stay in one evening.
On your day of arrival we will pick you up without charge from the airport, Kuta, Sanur or Ubud.
The Gaya if pronounced in Balinese means both stylish and unsnobbish, which is how we like to think of our house. We look forward to welcoming you.
Lovina Beach is an area stretching 4-5 km on the north coast of Bali. It is only 15 km from Singaraja, the second largest town in Bali and the former Dutch colonial administrative center for Bali till 1953. You will still find many houses from this period. You can also find the big local market, where you find everything from live chicken to gold and handy craft, or visit the harbor area.
Lovina is still not spoilt by the mass tourism of the south and you will find life much more easy going and relaxed. You will however still find plenty of restaurants, shops and music bars, if you want a night out.
There are also plenty of activities to see or do like trekking, diving, dolphin watching trips, go fishing in a local fishing boat, the hot springs and Buddhist temple or waterfalls but most memorable is meeting the Balinese people and seeing their daily lives, when you walk through the villages.
We can help you arrange most of these activities, just ask.
