Great, friendly staff, perfectly clean room and comfortable beds. The view from the room is the best I've ever had at an hotel! The location is perfect if you love nature and want to escape from the crowded cities at the island. Definitely worth to go here!
Fabulous small hotel in the middle of the rice terraces. Extremely friendly staff that was helpful with organising unique tours in the Munduk region and a cooking class in the hotel kitchen. A great place to wind down after the stress of a bigger city like Ubud. I would recommend staying at the Lesong Hotel for anyone who enjoys nature and sitting on the porch listening to the sounds of nature.
We were the first guests in quite a while at Lesong - an all-too-common occurrence at the moment. The room was ok without being exceptional. Bathroom basic. Not having aircon wasn’t a problem (it’s cooler in Munduk at night) but it was difficult to get ventilation into the room because either the windows with insect mesh wouldn’t open or there was a rip in the mesh. The small bottle of water there for us when we arrived wasn’t replenished so I guess it’s a one-time offer! Breakfast was good, but pretty slow - even when we pre-ordered it didn’t seem to make much difference. We ate a couple of other times in the restaurant area - convenient, but basic. Very limited menu, and not much by way of drinks on offer (although they managed to get us some Bintang on the last day!) WiFi was reasonably good. We stayed for 3 nights and it was fine for our needs. First and foremost we wanted a great location close to Munduk, and Lesong certainly delivered in that respect. The setting is beautiful. It’s easy to be critical of places when travelling during a pandemic, but Lesong has most likely just had a really tough year, is a bit out of practice and has fallen a bit behind with a few things. The staff were really lovely - friendly and eager to please. And Lemon the dog is a really cutie.…
I stayed 4 nights at Lesong Hotel during November 2020 and loved everything about it – very nice and well priced rooms with beautiful views of the surrounding area, excellent and friendly staff, a good breakfast and other menu options available throughout the day, and wonderful nature in every direction of the surrounding area to explore. I’m already looking forward to staying here again!
Often during overseas trips you find restaurants that are good but still lacking in something- Not the case with this one. Incredible wide range of foods, exquisite tastes in the foods and exceptional value for money and the most important thing for me-friendly staff. Congrats-you deserve a Michelin star!
Bottom Line: I highly recommend this hotel! I can't really pinpoint it, but the place has a great feel. The good: fantastic staff, beautiful location among the rice fields, clean accomodations, comfortable bed, no air conditioning (can leave windows open without listening to other's AC) The bad: It is farm country, so be ready for farm animal noises. I didn't mind but my wife is used to silence. No air conditioning. It would be nice to cool off after a hot hike, but the nights were nice and cool so we didn't miss it at bed time.
Hotel is located in a very beautiful and calm area among the rice fields. It is easy to go to the village and the path goes through very beautiful landscape with rice terraces (although the Munduk region is not flat => the road is steep sometimes). We spent in this hotel 3 nights in August. Hotel staff was very kind and helpful. Room and bathroom were in perfect state, cleaning was made each day, good breakfast rather common for Bali. We would come back with pleasure.
Long trip to reach Munduk - but the effort is highly awarded. What a beautifull place and so very, very nice people here. The view from the Resort is outstanding and rooms are very comfortable. All food here is prepared from the ground and tasted wonderfull. A walk to Munduk trough the forrest, hill and rice fields is hard but a must and something to remember.
If you want to go trekking the Volcano in Bali, it is the right location. You are already 30 Minutes in your way and getting up at 4 pm for the sunrise, it makes a difference. And the stuff will be looking so well after you. They are ready to get up with you to make an early coffee, make sure, you have all the informations about the area and include you in their daily prayers and offerings if you want to. You get to know the culture through them. The place itself is new and surprisingly luxurious. Nice to go for a good swim after having gone trekking through the dusk of the volcano. Absolut quietness for sleeping good quality of the large beds.
In terms of location, this is hands down the most beautiful hotel I've ever slept in - and for a very good price. The views from the room and from the common area are breathtaking: mountains and rice paddies as far as the eye can see. The room was very lovely, with large glass doors and windows to enjoy the view from, great bathroom and patio with some loungechairs. The restaurant at the hotel serves good local food. There are many options for hikes or bike rides around the area: the very friendly staff can help you find your way if you want to do it on your own, or they can arrange a guide and transportation for you if needed. We did one hike on our own, to the three waterfalls at Munduk, which was very easy to navigate even for people who usually get lost easily (like me). We also did a guided hike, a bit further from the town between the lakes. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area, his English was excellent and he taught us a lot about local culture and history, despite his young age. On top of that, manager Nyoman Witama took us on a walk through the ricefields (free of charge) and told us about his history with the area and all the projects he is involved in. We were only here for a short time, unfortunately, but the local people seemed very nice and relaxed, no hassle. If you're looking for a place to avoid the tourist crowds, find some peace and quiet and get overwhelmed by the beauty the island has to offer, look no further, this is it!…
