“Perfect hide-away on Bali's north coast for all types of travellers”
Reviewed October 2, 2009

Hey travellers,

we (30, 30) spent our 6-day-honeymoon at Puri Mangga (german-run) and had the perfect time after buzzling wedding.

Location is a cute hide-away up 1,5km the mountain opposite Lovina (black) beach. A beautiful garden is criss-crossed with narrow paths leading to the 5 enhanced bungalows, the pool area and the very private restaurant.

Staff is just great, makes you feel like family after the second day. Rodi, Mele, Wiboka are just perfectly taking care of you and make you never wanting to leave again. And Cuci at the house-own spa can make you feel soooo good.

The Hotel Manager Ganaesha can make anything happen, there is probably nothing in Lovina-area that mankind has already done, that Ganaesha cannot organize. Cheers !

Definitely and place to come back to !

We stayed at Puri Mangga for 6 nights as part of our trip around Asia. Everything suited us perfectly, from the remote location, to the lovely rooms, and the friendly staff. The outside bathroom was great - you really did feel at one with nature!! We stayed bed and breakfast and went to Lovina each night (the free transfer provided by the hotel was a really nice touch). We really enjoyed our stay, it was thoroughly relaxing, I would fully recommend Puri Mangga to anyone.

We were looking for somewhere to "get away" and found it here at Puri Mangga. We stayed in the Palm House which offers the most privacy, although all houses are quiet as there are so few there.
The gardens and beautifully tended, the staff are always friendly and smiling and looking for ways to help you, the infinity pool looks down the lush green forested hills and out towards the sea, the spa is secluded and open air - how wonderful to have a massage and feel the wind tickle your skin.
There is a small menu nightly at the hotel and as they are catering to so few you must select what you want to eat in advance. All food is prepared fresh for you and we could clearly taste the difference compared to what we ate elsewhere in Bali. The chef even came to find out what type of food we liked before preparing the menu.
We didn't venture out of the hotel too much as it was too lovely to leave. It was a wonderful relaxing escape. Later we did stay in the centre of Lovina which is more lively with a choice of restaurants, but we wish we had stayed on longer at Puri Mangga and just taken advantage of the free ride from the hotel back and forth for the odd beer out!
Our eight year old daughter loved the personal attention and intimate family atmosphere of the hotel and cried when we left.

We recently spent a wonderful 5 days at Puri Mangga at the end of our honeymoon. This place is true paradise. We opted for the 'Welness Package' which included a 4 hour spa treatment, 2 additional Balianese massages and half board. The room we stayed in - the Palm House - was sensational. It has amazing views down to the sea., outdoor bathroom, fabulous balcony with a massive day bed and everything you need. The food is 5 star restaurant standard and served in the enchanting restaurant. The fabulous chef changes the menu every day and will cook whatever you want sourcing ingredients from the local area. The staff are so friendly, helpful and attentive but also give you the privacy you need. There is no set time for anything so you can completely relax and play it your way. The location is amazing and away from the town up on the hillside. This gives a retreat feel and is a refreshing break from the crowds of Ubud etc. This place only has 5 rooms so is not busy or crowded. If you are lucky enough to read these reviews get it booked!

Excellent service, magnificiant view of the ocean, wonderful breakfast, serene location, friendly staff.. There simply aren't enought superlatives to describe Purri Mangga.

Every morning at Puri Mangga will be greeted by the magnificiant view of the ocean from our terrace. This was followed by a fantastic breakfast whipped up by the chef (the fried rice is a must try!). The day can then either be spent relaxing by the pool or a taking a short trip to places like Menjangan island.

Overall the stay at Puri Mangga was one with the perfect blend of rest & relaxation and fun filled activities arranged by the staff. In short, this place is a must visit and Ganesha and team can expect us returning in the near future...

The moment my friend and I stumbled out of our car, dirty and disheveled we were greeted with the utmost kindness and the friendliest of smiles. Despite the fact that we were the first guests of our kind (two twenty-something backpacking girls) they never treated us any less than any other guest. Every morning and all day all our needs were met with a personal level of professionalism. I can't say enough of how great the staff is...Ganaesa, the manager, Wylokan, Melly....everyone there was so wonderful.
As for the accommodations themselves, the standards are kept at a high at Puri Mangga. The rooms are kept tidy and are beautifully designed. Our villa offered us a sweeping view of the ocean from our porch and the pool was a skip away. If we had a little extra time on our hands in the evening we were able to borrow a dvd from their collection and watch it in our rooms (though most were in German).
Lastly, I was lucky enough to squeeze in a massage at the spa..It was divine. Ushi may be small, but appearances can deceive. She didn't rush it at all and she paid care to the most minute detail of comfort.
I was sad to go, but I definitely look forward to going back again soon.

After having done some research how to spice up our stay in Bali, we found the Puri Mangga over the internet, - thanks god!
We were a bit sceptical, if the reviews were kind of faked, since none of them showed the slightest negative point, but one has to admit: it is just perfect.

Sure - if you are looking for a large resort, with 3 different restaurants and shows in the evening, this might not be your place. But if you look for quietness, individualism and discreet luxury in its purest, friendliest and most personal way, then you will more than just enjoy it.

The other reviews mentioned already the sweet little houses with its awesome outside showers (taking a shower whilst the moon and stars are shining is just an incredible feeling), daybeds, which allow you to watch over the landscape down to the sea and its typical interior, so I will not describe all of that again.

The garden is very well maintained with a lot of attention to detail and wonderful flowers, which are daily picked and can be found on your bed when you return to your room after breakfast (cleaning is very well timed - the staff goes to your room whilst you sit on the terrace, enjoying the yummy breakfast (a la carte - you can choose whatever you want: pancakes, bread, jam, fruit salad, eggs in all variations - any special wishes, just let the cook know, he is happy to prepare whatever you want).

During the day you hang out around the overflow pool, with a great view over the landscape down to the sea. I personally am always too stressed to read books, but the chilling atmosphere there lets you calm down immediately and I read during our 5 days there around 1200 pages. In a hotel close by (Melka - but do not even think of staying there...) you can swim with dolphins (c. EUR 30 for c. 25 min), diving and snorkeling spots are relatively close by and it is not far to the beauties of the western part of Bali. But in general - the north is not very touristy, so it is difficult to find "western style" bars and clubs... but if you go to Puri Mangga, you are not really looking for those.

The evenings are spent with eating delicious food on the terrace, drinking a nice glas of wine (affordable prices.. rare in Bali!), whilst listening to the nature (cocks, geckos, etc.) and chilling music, reading one of the c. 120 books or watching a dvd (c. 100-150 films, if not more).

Purin Mangga has not the slightest to do with mass tourism (which you will not find in the north anyway) and the incredible true friendliness of the staff lets you feel like part of the familiy within hours.

The resort is a true pearl, one can only hope that it stays how it is. Thanks again to all of the staff for a great stay!

  • Liked — Staff friendliness, the reaxing atmosphere, individualism
  • Disliked — seriously.... I tried hard but couldn't think of anything
