This was our 2nd trip to the Hamsa, and certainly the views & setting were still as beautiful as we had remembered, along with the beautiful staff we had come to call our friends from our visit 12mths ago.
Unfortunately Henry, the previous owner and his amazing dog Bonnie are no longer there. The new owner, unfortunately is not friendly, quite arrogant and does not greet his guests. The sad part is we were quite upset by the way he was treating his staff (our friends); he shows no respect for them in anyway. Because of this new owner, we feel we will never return to the Hamsa again.

1st time to Lovina had a great experience staying at the Hamsa - we we perched at the top of a hill that goats would love. This is an amazing experience - drive up the hill (no walking up thats for sure) and you are knocked over by the most amazing views of the coast. No TV/Hairdryer/Bar fridge - but use of the fridges for your drinks - plentiful chlled water available all day 2 pools - fan in room was definately good enough in the hills. Food fab and cooked from scratch - yum - has the pleasure of meeting the new owners they should be proud of the way the Hamsa is run - so friendly (13 times to Bali so know how nice they were) Lovina is a place ready to explode the Hamsa will become a sort after place to stay - we will be back. THankyou to all they may our 5 nights memorable. x Make sure you do the YOGA classes. Also restaurants at Lovina will take you home after you eat there. Great service

We arrived there at night, the way uphill is scary but the view is truly amazing, no matter at night or day! I stayed at the penthouse which is very very big with a little bit strange design, but it is very clean. The pool is clean during my stay and the view, once again, AMAZING. The new owner, the staff and the cat & dog are very friendly. Food is really good, I don't think it's overproce cause it's fresh and organic. It's vegetarian friendly too! The serving time is slow but afterward I realized Bali's restaurants serving time are slow. I have no regret staying there even though it's a bit far from Lovina as the environment is cleaner and much hygiene.

A rocky and steep road up, but what a view!
We've stayed in one of the villas surrounding the smaller pool for 3 nights. The villa was clean with enough room, no ac or mosquitonet. You didn't really need an ac, because the cool sea breeze and the fan was sufficient for a cool room.

The staf is nice and friendly and the food is fine. Both pools where a bit cloudy though. Swimming in the top pool is recommended for magnifcient view at sunset!

The stray cats and dogs where a negative, as they tend to beg for food while you're having dinner.
Also being on top of the hill means calling a taxi or driver to bring you down.

This resort is a place to come back to. We stayed at one of the villa's on the hill top. The view was spectacular at sunset. The staff is very friendly and are willing to take you to a local market or show you the hot water springs (Not that nice). The waterfalls down hill are very nice, be careful for locals who are very friendly to show you the waterfall and charge you afterwards. You can easily find it on your one! The food was excellent and the up hill pool is worth a visit. My parents stayed at a bungalow, those small bungalows have nice beds but no mosquito nets. The only dirt we saw was on the big table in the restaurant. There was a layer of dirt on top of it (nasty). The dutch owners made this place a spot where everybody is welcome and can relax.

We've stayed in the hamsa for 4 nights. We loved it! We received a free upgrade when we arrived. We were in the appartment uphill next to the bigger swimmingpool. We payed appx 730.000 rph p/night. Breakfast is really good! Hamsa offers a taxi transfer to Lovina center (10 min by car) for 150.000 rph (return). Far to much. During daytime you can just walk downhill and try to stop a car/taxi or ojek. Expect to pay 50.000 rph for a single way taxi. Restaurant offers good food. Expect to pay a bit more, bit everything is organic & fresh.
