Stayed at Vila Lumbung from 2-11 January 2013 and loved it.
Vila- fittings a little tired but this was overcome by the wonderful amount of room and the fantastic staff at the facility. Had the outdoor bathroom downstairs which was great except if bathing on dusk when mosquitoes are at their worst.
Staff- all staff were great, so friendly and ready to assist with anything they can.
Facilities- pool area is lovely and was kept very clean and tidy which was a full time job with the winds and storms that were happening. Menu at Restaurant for lunch dinner and room service was very limited and the cocktails weren't great. Breakfast was great with lots of variety from cereal to omelettes and pancakes and my favourite- crunchy bacon.Walking distance to world class restaurants such as Sarong and Tulip, along with great cafes and other restaurants so finding a decent meal in walking distance is not a problem.
Transport- taxi fare to central kuta 50,000Rp. Didn't take long to get there in the morning but the trip back is LONG with the traffic. Fare to Seminyak Square is the minimum call cost of 25,000Rp. Stick with Blue Bird Taxi as the others don't have as good a reputation and try all the tricks to get more money from you.
Spa- not the most luxurious or modern facility but the staff provide great service. Prices are higher than shops on the street but for the ease of booking and getting there so easily and the quality of the massage it was worth it.
Beds are super comfortable. Be sure to purchase insect repellant and insect spray when you get there to avoid being attacked by mossies (this was not a situation limited to the Vila- Bali is a tropical Island and every time I've been there have been mosquitoes)- There is a Circle K and another 7/11 style store in easy walking distance. Daybed on the verandah great for lounging around reading a book.
Great location for fantastic Seminyak Restaurants, a little far from Kuta if shopping is your main purpose of travelling but wonderful for relaxing.
