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...

Friendly staff, great massages in spa from lovely girls followed by ginger tea and biscuits. Menu in restaurant ok, nowhere else to eat nearby. Really beautiful infinity pool, but lots of... More

First about Banyuwedang, it is a small village located at the border of West Bali National Park, an 3.5 half hour drive from Kuta. This place is perfect anathema to the hustle and bustle of South Bali, therefore never ever expect to do a typical city dweller activities like shopping and dining. The main acitivities here is outdoor activities, from... More

This resort is paradise, complete with all the beautiful grounds, food and service you could want, at moderate prices. Our BayView room was gorgeous, comfortable bed, lovely porch with view (though just a glimpse of the bay) and a swing, plus a private back yard which includes the luxurious outdoor bathroom. We stayed five nights here and had a few... More
