This was our second stay at this lovely property. All the rooms are large and lovely including the new Bay View rooms, Lumbung suites and the mangrove suites. We stayed again in a mangrove suite which has a jacuzzi tub fed by the warm waters from the local hot springs. The bed and linen are beautifully comfortable and the room... More

We had a Bay View Villa when we stepped through the door i thought i was in heaven absolutely beautiful indeed. Two step level Villa with a front porch with... More

A very nice resort to arrive to, after a very long drive from South Bali. We stayed at Lumbung Suite, very spacious inside, and great views to the surroundings. No huts are too close to each other, so privacy is guaranteed. Room's very clean, it was prepared for our arrival. Bathroom is super big, nice to spread all of our... More

We enjoyed the quiet of this area off-season. The snorkeling was incredible, much more vibrant and alive reef than anywhere I've been, including Thailand, Mexico, and Jamaica. There are plenty of activities if you want to see the national park lands and wildlife or explore by water. We hired a driver to get us there and back which allowed us... More

Naya Gawana is the place to be if you enjoy somewhere quiet and away from civilisation. We stayed in the beautiful Lumbung Suite for 2 nights, the staff were very professional, helpful and friendly during our stay there. The resort is located in West Bali, and unlike the others located in Seminyak/other touristy area, there isn't many food choices (i.e... More

after we decided to go diving at Menjangan island, it did not take me long to decide to stay at Naya Gawana, it's located in the very quiet bay very close to Menjangan island. The hotel is very easy to find when you drove alone the main road from Lovina to Menjangan. The hotel was very nice arranged beside the... More

The resort offers quit seclusion, first rate service, lovely villas, excellent, unpretentious food-all without the "oh, look at me, I'm working in a 5 star resort-aren't you lucky to be here" attitude that unfortunately is found in so many Bali resorts these days. The staff are very well trained and managed, efficient, willing and friendly. If you need a place... More

One of very few resorts in a relatively untouched and unknown area of Bali, West Bali National Park. Buffet breakfast, afternoon tea and occasional massages by the pool all complimentary! Amazing views and extremely peaceful. Snorkelling, diving, boating and kayaking all available from the resort at reasonable prices. The snorkelling is world class - I've made a separate review for...
