“What a fantastic place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

We booked into The Lovina as a last minute thing, after having to move from another hotel down the road. We were SO happy that we made the move. We really cannot fault this place; the staff, the facilities and the room. We had a mountain view room on the first level and the view was really lovely. We were looking over the rice paddies to the mountains that lead to Lake Bratan. It was magic. The room itself was very large, light and modern but also had all the lovely Bali furnishing touches such as great art work and comfortable bed and couches. We had a great flat screen TV with a perfect picture and we enjoyed catching up with the world news. The food at the restaurants was top class and the staff were impeccable. The hotel is at the centre of everything, although if you are older (we were with my 80 year old relatives) you need more of a shuttle service to drop you and pick you up in the little restaurant centre of town. We really loved it here and would have happily stayed if we were not already booked into our 'home' hotel in Sanur. I have been coming to Bali for 30 years and had not been to Lovina for many years. It definitely has the feel of the old Bali before the tourists all arrived. It is a peaceful and really lovely little town.

We recently spent 4 nights at the Lovina and loved it. We were in a 2 bedroom beach suite which was extremely spacious and comfortable. We were on the ground floor and just walked out a few steps to the pool and the bar/restaurant Bliss!! We did the dolphin tour at dawn which we loved and also snorkelling out on the reef. We ate mainly at the hotel although had a fabulous meal at Warung Apple in 'town'. It cost about 25 dollars AUS for 4 of us including plenty of beer and juices!! Lovina was quiet, peaceful and The Lovina met all our expectations. Highly recommended.

This was our 8th trip to Bali in the past 11 years. Our first time venturing very far from Jimbaran or Seminyak. It is a long drive however their driver is very accommodating, more than happy to stop at different attractions along the way. We stayed in a Terrace villa, which was Huge, beautifully clean with an amazing view out over the ocean.
Through the hotel we snorkelled the reef just out from the resort, we went out to view the dolphins & my son & husband spent an afternoon out fishing. We also visited the Git Git water falls. There is a fabulous restaurant/Bar a short stroll up the beach, called The Spice Bar, right on the water with its own kids pool, a great spot for drinks/dinner.
The staff at Lovina are fantastic, accommodating, friendly & it was very sad saying good bye to them. Food is very good & reasonably priced.
Overall, it is a really lovely place to say, very relaxing with enough things to do. It was a great holiday, just prepare yourself for the 3hour drive. We would return.

Just experienced a lovely weekend staying in their 2 bedroom beach front apartment which was huge in size with living area, kitchen,dinning area & nicely furnished bedrooms. We found the staff to be very welcoming & accommodating.The grounds of the resort are beautiful & well maintained in fact everything is well maintained. The position of the resort is perfect, both beach front & with mountain views. Breakfast was a buffet or off the menu & we sat upstairs with views overlooking rice paddy fields & the mountains, very relaxing. Experienced the best Swedish massage in their Body Tonic spa by Putri, she totally had me relaxed by the time she was finished. We also got up early 6am ready for the Sunrise & Dolphin tour which is amazing & there were so many dolphins swimming up along side our boat. Overall I couldn't fault the resort, this place made us feel at home & it's well worth the visit. Can't wait to go back!

The Lovina resort is probably the best accommodation in Lovina through does not live up to it's own self-appointed 5 star rating on their website.
When I first checked in I heard the reception on the phone to room staff talking about a single bed. I requested a king size bed and she said yes yes the bed is big. Got to the room and they had given me a double room with 2 small single beds. I went back to reception to complain and they did quickly change my room to a king size bed.
Breakfast is good and the hotels is in a good location with direct access to the beach and a easy 15 minute walk along the beach to Lovina town centre.

We spent 11 days at the resort and in one word it was perfection! The staff are amazing, incredibly friendly, welcoming and are helpful. We instantly felt at home in the resort and didn't need to leave as everything was at our finger tips. If your one of those people that can't sit still we were also able to find plenty to do and the staff are happy to recommend places to see. We swam with the dolphins, soaked in the hot springs, visited Sinharaja for some shopping and occasionally dined out (couldn't go past the resorts restaurant).
The Body Tonic spa was the perfect way to end the day, the Balinese massage was fantastic.
There is no comparing Lovina to the south of Bali, it is in a league of its own.
I have urged friends and family to go and experience The Lovina for themselves. It's a must!

Just beautiful.

The staff are professional and friendly. The rooms are spacious and especially great for families. We enjoyed the pool and delicious breakfast. The grounds are well-maintained and lush. We were traveling for business and The Lovina was a nice place to return to in the evening. Thank you for a great visit!
