The Hotel was fantastic. Driving into the Vila Lumbung for the first time was a great feeling - I knew we had made the right choice. The hospitality was great and the entire atmosphere was instantly relaxing. We stayed in a deluxe villa (when you book a deluxe villa you book either the top floor or the ground floor) which was massive, traditional balinese and beautiful. We had the top floor and there was so much space. A big balcony with a couch over looking the greenery, a big bed type couch comfortable for reading & surrounded by windows. a regular couch and the usual (for Bali) massive california king size bed. Which was ultra comfortable! The bathroom was clean and big - the shower rose also had pressure which was a big plus. The only issues with the room was lack of effective lighting - I think it is lit to look romantic which it definately acheives - but a bit more light for reading on the big couch-bed would be ideal. The only other issue was the lack of free purified water. I guess I'm a bit spoilt having always stayed in big resorts where a waterfilter is available for use. At Lumbung the only free water was in the bathroom (2 x 600 ml) for washing teeth. The rest could be purchased from the mini bar. We just tried to remember to pick up a couple of bottles from the supermarket on the way home to supplement our supply, or we drank Bintang - not much of a choice really!
The hotel is mainly all traditional open air balinese, set in gorgeous lush green gardens. It is small and has that boutique feel about it. When we arrived there didn't seem many guests but the numbers seemed to grow towards the end of the stay. Yet it was still quiet, peaceful and we never had the feeling of been crowded. There is a great pool with a swim up bar in the lower level!
The hotel is located in a very quiet area. Which is great if you'd like to be away from it all but close enough. If you were wanting a (market) shopping holiday - there is a little way to go into Kuta or Legian (about 20-30mins due to the traffic). Seminyak centre is only about a 5 minute taxi ride away but is focused on boutique shopping. Taxi's are so cheap and easy to come by it really is of little consequence. As a guide it cost between Rp35K - Rp42K to get to/from Kuta and only Rp8K to get into Seminyak. There are a few restaurants in easy walking distance from the hotel which were great.
All in all a wonderful place to stay and well worth checking out!
