“"Sijf Experience"”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

If you look for a homy and unique place, this is the place. This is not like a big hotel with star service, the room is maybe not cleaned daily, the door maybe can't be locked properly or the water maybe is not hot enough. But, it is a clean and quite big space with an extraordinary "shells" decoration (rather whimsical) and the owner, a Dutch man, Sijf, is very warm and friendly person. He is also helpful and handy with arranging for snorkeling and dolphin watching trips, with excellent price. He also made a good *feeling at home* breakfast, banana pancake and bread w egg and bacon. The location is in the main road of Lovina. It is also very convenient, next to a mini-mart, drugstores and atm machine and about 5-10 minutes walk either to the beach or centre of crowd in Lovina. I would recommend this place especially to the first timer in Lovina. Veel success Sijf !

The hotel has a unique character and this makes it unforgettable experience. I stayed in a fairytale room with every single centimetre of it covered by shells and which looked incredible!

Of course if you like big hotels “all inclusive”, you will not be happy here. Maybe water not hot enough, maybe a few insects in the room, maybe room is not cleaned daily, or just the fact you can’t lock it properly… But if you are looking for a homy place with sincere and warm welcome in addition to the opportunity to live in a seashell masterpiece, then this is the place for you!

The owner, Sijf, is Dutch and very friendly. He helped me to arrange dolphin and snorkelling trips (excellent deal!) and it was nice to have a chat with him in the evenings.
The location is excellent: close to the beach, bars and restaurants, right in front of ATM and a 24/24 supermarket.

This is the best hotel I stayed in during my entire trip to Indonesia and I highly recommend it to anyone heading for Lovina!

I don't usually leave reviews, but Rattan Resto is deserving. The owner is a very kind man. He always made sure you were happy wether you needed help with transport, a tour or needed a little extra breakfast. The staff were also helpful. The seashell room I stayed in was great, very much like a fairy tale. This unique hotel stay was the highlight of my short vist to Lovina.

If you're one for hunting out unique places to stay in the world, you should stay here. My daughter found this place on trip advisor and it certainly lives up to its name. We stayed in the shell room for 2 nights, double bed only but we were happy to share. Bed firm but relatively comfy, fan only but nicely positioned to keep us reasonably cool at night, no bugs. The owner is very helpful and friendly.

PLEASE BE AWARE THE LOCATION ON TRIP ADVISOR IS INCORRECT: it is located on the left side between JL bina Ria and JL ketapand.

Great clean and comfortable hotel and cool scenery! Furthermore, the hotel owner (Sijf) is very friendly and thoughtful. Sijf suggested many activities some of which were also in the LP but he gave additional helpful tips. Such as, visit the hot springs in the morning and on week days to avoid the crowds. He also arranged our snorkeling trip and dolphin experience.
Finally, Sijf was also very accommodating and made no problem when we changed our breakfast from 9 am to 6 am or 12 am.

The hospitality of Sijf and his staff made our stay very easy!

We stayed in the shell room and were delighted with the appearance of the room.We had never seen anything like it. This is great for one or maybe two nights. If you are used to 5 star luxury do not expect this here - it's like extremely beautiful camping. The front door doesn't shut or lock (although it's very trustworthy)and there are various holes in the tiles for decoration purposes which could easily invite a few night time friend's in. The hot water and internet are extremely limited. The pool is well kept and the owner is a real character he helped us with cheap day tours and a cab to ubud. Breakfast is included and is fruit and pancakes. Home made chicken.curry is available for 40,000

Overall memorable but glad we stayed for just two.

The frist review I've ever written, but this place with wonderfull bedrooms and a very friendly owner deserves it. The kids loved the 'shell house', like entering a fairytale. The swimmingpool is very nice and the owner is very kind and helpfull. We even got coffee and fruits around 5:45 before seeing the dolphins. When you go to Lovina, I recommend this place to everyone.
