We booked one of Lullaby’s four bungalows after reading the amazing reviews on Tripadvisor. The aim was to have a quiet few days of rest and it was the perfect place for that, as both the grounds and surrounding area are very quiet. The large rooms are also very good value for money and the price includes a huge breakfast that will keep you going for the best part of the day.
The beaches – and whole area – are very surf oriented, making it the perfect place for anyone looking to get in some surfing while away. The beaches (Padang Padang & Uluwatu) are much more scenic that those around the Kuta/Legian/Seminyak stretch, and stunning in the case of Uluwatu beach, which has a host of surf bars, rental shops and restaurants hanging off the cliffs. But this also meant they are smaller so seemed crowded – at least during peak season (we were there over the Christmas holiday) - so not as good for those looking to sunbathe/kick a ball around/swim. Renting a moped is pretty much essential, as Uluwatu beach and many good restaurants (Ulu Thai in particular served excellent food, as did “El Kabron”, a Spanish restaurant) are not within walking distance, and roads are not illuminated at night.
I would generally agree with most of the reviews so far on this site, but there were a few areas that could be improved upon. While the owner, is very easy to talk to and has many good suggestions for activities, places to go, she was not there for most of our stay. The local staff were friendly and helpful, but seemed quite shy and communication was fairly minimal (largely due to language barriers). As such a little additional material such as a basic printed map of the surrounding area and roads would have been useful for those without a clear idea of what the area offered.
Another minor niggle was the internet access, which was a little patchy (didn’t extend to the bungalow) and also not free. Though not expensive, the added charges and requirement for login details just seemed unnecessary and overly clunky. Particularly since people nowadays often have multiply devices to connect. On balance, however, these were minor issues.
