Decent place to stay, very value for money with simple accommodation, is clean with nice-smelling sheets, but still doing some upgrading. No A/C, bathrooms are quite open, and the room could also get a bit stuffy in the day time. Also, do not expect strong WIFI connection in the room, we had to go out by the poolside to get... More

We stayed for one week. Basic accommodation but clean. Sanitary could do with maintenance / upgrade but it's what we expected for budget accommodation. Staff are helpful and friendly. Diving was great. The dive sites you visit depend on experience of group (and if courses are being run). We revisited some sites but we didn't have a problem with that.... More

Seriously! This place is a little nirvana. Cosey bungalows set around a pool with palm trees all over the place. So close to the beach and local restaurants. Amazingly helpful and friendly owners. Gorgeous breakfasts (try the gluten free pancakes with fresh coconut, banana and lime) cooked by the local staff who also provide scooter and laundry services. All topped... More

I stayed here for a 3 week writing retreat: it was such a great experience! This was the perfect place with peace and quiet, friendly fellow travellers to connect with and simple but clean bungalows. I could roll out of bed and straight into the yoga shack, which made it really easy and motivating to do yoga everyday. I loved... More

...what more could you want? The accommodation is basic but clean, entirely adequate and good value. More importantly, SGB has a friendly community feel and with yoga, dive shop and surf right on your doorstep, it really is a great base for anyone who's a bit budget conscious but keen to get the most from Lembongan. They put on some... More

At 200,000 rupiah a night ($20) you get what you pay for. The shack we stayed in had one power point, terrible wifi conenction and only a fan for the bali heat. However I cannot complain because it was cheap accomodation and we did enjoy our stay. The pool was clean and right out the door, the staff were nice... More

Context- This review is written from the perspective of a couple who have lived and worked in Asia for two years. We tend to travel budget (and will not post a negative review if a place does not come with free soap, for example), but a small level above ‘backpacker’. Location- Nusa Lembongan is a beautiful place with an amazing... More

My partner and I headed to Nusa Lembongan with little idea of what to expect and we were blown away! We had originally planned to stay only for two nights, but spent an entire week there. Secret Garden Bungalows offer exceptional value for money, while being a fun and social place to stay - or completely private, if that's what... More

Secret Garden has it all. My boyfriend and I stayed in one of the bungalows for a week and we couldn't have picked a better place. It is a fantastic place to put up your feet and relax. We were woken up by the cooing of turtle doves each morning. There is a veranda to sit on and enjoy the... More
