My friend and I were booked to stay with Lovina Beach Houses in mid-March 2020. The holiday had been fully paid for through Airbnb and was subject to strict a cancellation policy. I guess when they say “strict” they mean “strict” because they were not prepared to refund our money even for the global pandemic of Covid19. The Australian Government issued an international travel alert the day before we were due to arrive at Lovina, prompting my friend and I to cancel our trip. I contacted the property managers who were very understanding. They advised their preference was for the booking to be deferred to a later date but also stated that a refund could also be given, referring me to Airbnb. I proceeded to cancel and requested a refund based on exceptional circumstances. The owner was short in their reply stating no refund would be offered due to their strict cancellation policy. I sought the intervention of Airbnb who advised that the refund was at the discretion of the owner. The owner could have provided a refund, they chose not to. I love Bali and I’m a frequent visitor. Sadly I know a poor review hurts the Balinese staff more than the owner (non-Balinese) but I cannot support or recommend this property based on how unreasonable the owner has behaved during the trying time of Covid19.…
These are a very low key style of beach house. They feel quite authentic in their design and amenities. It takes about 10 or 15 minutes to walk along the beach before you reach the shops. Alternatively walk via the road which is longer and takes you to the busy main road. The staff were very friendly. We'd come back if staying in Lovina.
What a beautiful villa! We had never been to Lovina or anywhere near Belulung before and picked this place as a gamble. Staff were great, villa is extremely well set up and not even the morning roosters detracted from our stay. Thanks Franz and team for a lovely break in Lovina.
Well here we are, right on the beach, I mean right on the beach, open the gate you’re on the sand. Beautiful and peaceful after busy Ubud. Bit rustic but hey, it’s good. Nice little Warung next door and close to Secret Garden and Spice Beach Club. Enjoy!
We stayed in seahorse with our children and we all absolutely loved it! We had massages in the house, chilled out at the pool, bought sarongs from Katie on the beach and had fresh fish that was caught in the morning, cooked for us at the restaurant next door. We went on a sunset boat trip as we are to lazy to get up in the morning and we were lucky to see the dolphins. We really enjoyed the reclaimed teak house, the local people and would have liked to stay here for the rest of our lives! We were sad to leave. We will be back! Thankyou xx
