I stayed here with a group of friends (6 adults + 3 young children). The rooms were well appointed, with fantastic views. Food was fresh and delicious. The owner and staff took care of us very well. We will certainly come back!

We stayed here our first night and were only here for about 12 hours, but it was an amazing 12 hours. The view was stunning. I cannot even give it words. We woke up at 4am and hiked up Mt Batur with a guide from the hotel. The hike and the views were amazing. After we were exhausted and had... More

Lakeview eco lodge is for sure the best hotel in the area. Having said this, the place is no match for any half-decent 3 or 4 star hotel in southern Bali. It is very evident that the place has seen much better times, I would guess around 20 years ago from the condition of the rooms. Mold is omnipresent, the... More

Dear Sir, Thank you for your interesting observations and analysis of the tourism operations in the Kintamani area :-) It is always a surprise to get a fresh perspective. I was on my annual leave in Prague and Paris when you visited, and I do appreciate getting guest input especially when I am away, to know what is going on.... More

Much more than just the best place for mountain hiking, sunrise trips and cycling tours. More too than the spectacular view from the room and the restaurant on valley, lake and mountains. Lakeview Ecolodge is driven by the idea that visitors should be taken seriously on all levels. The architecture is elegant, the rooms are spacious and soothing, the food... More

Arrived in the wet (not surprisingly) and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance of the hotel and cafes and the views when they appeared through the clouds. At breakfast the weather was clear for the first few hours and the view from the lookout restaurant was stunning. Food and service at both Danu cafe and the lookout buffet were excellent and the...

Thanks for visiting during the quiet days in the rainy season! We are often blanketed by the clouds in the January to March months, but more often above the clouds as it actually rains here less than in the south of Bali. Thanks also for recommending us. Do note that we've installed curtains in front of the one-way-glass mirrors (between... More

Basically i can only sum up the experience as disappointing and would not recommend anyone this hotel more than a stopover for a night. First the administrative aspect needs alot of improvement.

Dear Guest, We are truly sorry to hear about your experience. I do advise you ask to speak to the manager when you come to such an issue. Our refund policy is, in general, quite generous, except for during the very brief peak season surrounding Christmas and New Year. You also need to be aware that some of the cancellation... More

Arrived in torrential rain which was perfectly suited to this very cosy boutique lodge. Living in Bali it is a delight to travel just an hour or 2 and have a new experience. Rugged up with scarves we enjoyed backgammon with Mulled Wine overlooking a breathtaking panorama that must be seen to be believed. All afternoon spent watching the sky... More

Congratulations for pressing the "escape" button during a hectic time of the year down in the busy south to come to the land among the clouds! Well, we are for the most part above the clouds and get much less rainfall than Ubud and the tourist havens in the south of Bali, but the clouds that swirl do make people... More

We paid 50 USD and had a great little room overlooking the Mountain. The restaurant served a delightful, buffet lunch (included in the price of the room).

Thanks for dropping by! Looks like you were given a special offer at our Flashpacker rooms (available through Kintamani Backpackers) with lunch and breakfast included. I'm glad you enjoyed our food, service and view. We do have fun dressing up guests in traditional Balinese wear. Wishing you happy holidays, and looking forward to hosting you next time! More
