Not the best

  • 2 of 5

The second bedroom and bathroom has a displeasing odour. We did not find the location very convenient especially if you're timid to ride the scooters ( which you rent ) amungst the aggressive Bali drivers. The internet SIM card you purchase will not last you long if you like to watch videos. The pool boy was very kind to go into town to get us this card as we did not realize we would need it. We over all felt far away and too excluded from any amenities. Cell phones would have been appreciated for use to call for drivers. The breakfast is not the greatest.

Owner's Response: hllo, sorry for your inconvieniences, but as stated , Bali is still an underdeveloped province in Indonesia, which makes the experience quite unique in several ways, among the aggressive driving, i always put emphasis on safety while driving in Bali, even if Lovina and surroundings are considered safe in comparisation to Kuta area, even the most basic amenities are scarce, and while Villa Lalang is situated in the local community , it enhances the feel of seclusion which so many of us crave, but is also quite clear on the maps where we are, and the need for scooters is evident, not only to get around , but to enjoy the local scenery. Odours, while in the dry season there is always some water scarcity and the Villa is not always rend out , things get muffy quite soon in a tropical climate, just open the shower , doors and vent for a while , you should be ok, but hope you enjoyed your stay Johan

Casa con encanto muy confortable y bien situada

  • 4 of 5

Villa Lalang

Casa con encanto muy confortable y bien situada .

Somos una pareja y hemos estado un mes en la casa celebrando nuestro aniversario de boda.


Espacios muy confortables para sentarse y tumbarse durante las diferentes horas del día . El mobiliario es cómodo y muy bonito .

Es una casa muy fresca y corre el aire por lo que apenas hay mosquitos

Esta muy bien situada con respecto a Lovina y es muy tranquila .

Se puede ver el atardecer y el amanecer desde la casa así como el mar

La piscina es más grande de lo que parece en las fotografías , tiene un tamaño ideal , es fantástica y los budas de piedra son preciosos

Me encanta ver llover desde el porche .

Me encantan los espacios abiertos de la casa y el baño de la suite principal .

Estabamos tan bien que Habia momentos en que nos costaba salir de la casa :-)


Especialmente la iluminación del interior y exterior . Personalmente me parece muy incomoda .

No hay presión de agua en la ducha .

Limpieza diaria muy básica . Tuve que especificar que me limpiaran los baños varías veces porque no se limpiaban así como el gazebo de la piscina.


después de vivir un mes en la casa volvería a repetir sin duda alguna a pesar de sus inconvenientes , siempre alquilamos casas en Ubud pero esta vez me ha gustado mucho conocer esta parte de Bali aunque es una pena que no cuíden las playas para poder disfrutarlas , recomendaría visitar Munduk , Mayong , Pupuan , Sudaji y sobre todo perderte con la moto por cualquier camino

Descubrimos un pequeño warung fantástico llamado WIDE SPECIAL justo al final de la calle en la esquina de camino a Lovina Beach perteneciente a un holandés y una Indonesia encantadores donde puedes comprar pan recién hecho cada día , brownies , gofres , bollos de pasas y canela, hamburguesas , perritos calientes , tabaco , comida Indonesia muy bien de precio y buena calidad , también te lo puedes llevar a casa , están abiertos de 11-23 horas .

Para masajes sin duda alguna Agungs.

Me da mucha pena marcharme y solo me consuela que aún me queda un mes de vacaciones en Ubud :-))

Gracias Johan por permitirnos disfrutar de tu preciosa casa

Un día más en el paraíso

Geweldige ervaring!

  • 5 of 5

Wat een geweldige ervaring! Vanaf de moment dat je binnenkomt word je reeds verwelkomt door de zeer vriendelijke staff van het huis! Je krijgt meteen een rondleiding en merkt al meteen dat dit een geweldige vakantie zal worden! De kamers en badkamers zijn ruim en voorzien van airco. Het zwembad is groot en wordt elke dag zuiver gehouden! Wanneer je dit wenst, kan je eten laten maken door iemand van de staff, een echte aanrader! De ligging van de villa vonden wij zelf zeer goed, echt tussen de locals, een beetje weg van het toeristische gebied (dat op 10 minuutjes rijden met de scooter te bereiken is). Kortom, alles is aanwezig om er een geweldige vakantie van te maken!
