We booked for this hotel although when we arrived they didn't have any record of it. Given that its owned by an Australian it was ironic that it was the only place on our trip that didn't. Anyway - we were given a room and it was really like walking into a 1970s Australian seaside motel. Indeed looking out of the french windows which look immediately out onto the pool and absorbing the atmosphere it actually felt like being in an Australian seaside motel in the 70s.
We immediately went away and looked for somewhere else. We also then discovered that the hotel itself is a very long way from the main part of Lovina where there are really nice shops and restaurants and to get there you have to walk along a really busy road.
Now, it may well be that the food was fantastic and the service brilliant but just a warning - if you want a Balinese experience you probably won't get it here.
