“Villa Lumbung makes for a faultless family getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2011

My family and I have stayed at Villa Lumbung three times now (over 3 years) and have loved it equally each time. The entire staff provide an excellent and friendly service which makes everyone feel relaxed and comfortable. My 2 boys (this year 6 and 8) love the breakfasts and the pool best. each of these keep them busy for hours.

We've stayed at a number of other places in Bali and when we get back there next we've decided that Villa Lumbung and the Seminyak area will be our main base.

Room Tip: We've stayed in several 'Deluxe Bungalows' and each of them has been great for us.

Private, clean and spacious villas. Lovely (private) outdoor bathroom with good water pressure. Staff very friendly. Within walking distance to great cafes and restaurants - Ku de ta, Potato Head, Breeze, La Lucciola, Sarong and beautiful shops. Best to eat out as hotel restaurant food is average and breakfast buffet is very small. Walk out the front of hotel to hail a taxi. Gym is not really a gym

Room Tip: Request villa 17B

Stayed for 5 nights on the last leg of our holiday around Bali. Hotel was good, pool lovely. Breakfast included, and there is a good range - but service poor - they would forget to bring Tea/Coffee (even though it was asked for) and when they did bring it they would always forget milk! No one eats in the hotel at night - not sure if this is due to the breakfast service!
Room's nice - although no showers! (bath with a low level hook on the wall for showerhead)
Its in north Seminyak, and pretty much the last hotel north of the area, so wouldn't recommend if you want to have a large selection of restaurants or the beach on your doorstep. - Pathways/no pavements on the main road outside the hotel.

We were here for 7 days. Had a great time. It's the only place we have stayed in that looks better once you're there than it does on the net. Friendly staff. The garden and the pool were just stunning. We stayed in a superior room and it was lovely. After being out all day it is so nice to come back to. Lovely and quiet. The pool and gardens and all the little paths are lit up at night and we would often have a drink by the pool. Didn't matter what time it was. So pretty. Lots of nice restraunts around it. Great breakfast. Cleaned the room every day and left 2 bottles of water everyday. Lovley sitting on the balcony overlooking the gardens. Most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. Only complaint is that the main strip of Seminyak is a bit of a walk and we ended up hiring a motorbike which was great. Good driver for day trips within the grounds. We are going back in January with our son and his girlfriend and we will stay here again without a doubt. Pure paradise!

Room Tip: Flight centre do good rates here.

...we stayed here for 4 nights, having no idea where it was or too much about it.....what a lovely surprise. We arrived late, and had opted for the very professional hotel transfer...perfect. We had reserved an upstairs villa. The first room was probably in better condition, but we wanted to be closer to the pool, like a view! . We requested this at reception this next morning, nothing was a problem, in fact they gave us the keys to two villas, so we could check out which one we preferred. We were moved swiftly, with a smile. We loved our new abode. Daybed over looking the pool, big room, stunning bed linen on that big comfy king size bed. Staff were very friendly, breakfast okay, but not grand....great coffee and stick to the eggs cooked to order, they do that very well. The location is quiet but explore some of the fantastic restaurant around that area. The pool is beautiful, with the pool boy scooping up every dropped leaf and handing out fresh towels A great place to stay if you like a nice big room, lovely comfy bed and a very pleasant pool area. The one thing I would point out as a down side....the lack of atmosphere in the restaurant at lunch and dinner and the "swim-up" bar . They need to deck out the bar, so its inviting, not looking like its closed and unattended! Evenings at the restaurant are dead....go out!!!!

A tidy, comfortable hotel that is super friendly and we found it was great for us and our 3.5 year old. We stayed in a deluxe room which was big enough for a king bed and a single bed.

Close to everything in Seminyak: about a 2 minute drive to Ku de Ta (about $1AUD) and the shopping strip in Seminyak.

We arrived late from Sydney and found that they hadn't put up a bed for our son, but it was not a stress and they set one up within minutes.

Fantastic pool area for the kids! Drinks and food are cheap, Great wet bar. Awesome massages, if you don't mind not being in a spa set up, but rather in an outdoor hut near the pool area.

Will definitely come back here.

This was my 16th time at Vila Lumbung so you can see that I really like it. I generally come here with my sister and sometimes with my husband. We stay in the old Villa type rooms and have a favourite 9B which is very close to the pool and has a daybed on the front verandah as well as a table and chairs. The rooms are very big and ours has outdoor bathroom. I have also stayed in the much newer Superior rooms and find these to be of very good value. I have also stayed with extended family in the 3 bedroom villa which is great for a family of 6. The negatives about Vila Lumbung are 1. The staff have all been there for a long time and I think they are not thinking so much about the satisfaction of guests expectations any more. It is very hard to attract their attention when you are at the pool to get them to come and take food and drink orders. someof the staff at the front reception desk do not have a good grasp of the English language and it is difficult to get something done a lot of the time if you have a complaint. Regardless of these negatives,I love this hotel for its location and peacefullness. We have been staying here since 2001 and the staff have become an extended family for us. We love them all.
