We had a great time at the hotel in one of the cottages at the bottom of the complex away from the pool/restaurant area. We had a ground floor villa with a main bedroom, sunroom and a outside bathroom.
If we went back we would probably get an upstairs villa as it looked like it had an indoor bathroom. The outdoor one was very romantic but the mosquitos wouldn't leave us alone when getting ready, especially for my fiance who needed the mirror for getting ready ;-)
The breakfast had a lot of buffet food to offer and you could also order freshly cooked omelette's too. The lunch/dinner menu was ok, but there are definately better restaurants extremely close such as Ku De Ta, The Living Room, The Hu Bar and Rumours further into Seminyak town. Seminyak was most definitely the best town we visited for eating out, drinking and shopping so it was great to be close, but not on top of it like some of the other hotels. Taxi's are so cheap that getting to Kuta, Ubud, Nusa Dua etc was not an issue.
The staff were extremely friendly and the pool area was great. The hotel wasn't at its busiest then, but there were a shortage of sun beds (25 tops), so unless you got their early you'd be in normal seats or stuck on paved floor on towels.
The internet is shared across the entire complex and is extremely slow at peak times.
We would definitely go back and stay there.
we stayed at villa lumbung for 10 nights in july. we had a two storey lumbung. kids downstairs,(one teenager and one 14 month old.) us upstairs. the hotel was great. very peaceful. the staff were friendly. the gardens are beautiful and the pool area is adequate for the amount of guests. My only complaint would be - there is no happy hour by the pool, a few good cocktails dont go astray in the afternoon.
the lumbungs are huge, small lounge area, outdoor table and decent bathrooms. the downstairs lumbung has a open air bathroom.(dont forget sandalwood sticks for the bath time). built in traditional style.
the hotel is surrounded by great restaurants, Hu'u and sarong are a definiate. for cheap eats right out the front of the hotel, turn right is a local warung(blue sign??) - the food is cheap, safe and YUMMY!!
overall, a great hotel, quiet and relaxing, great for kids and couples.
P.s the room service food was expensive and pretty average, with so many gr8 eats close by, dont bother sitting in the room.
lumbung 9 and 11 overlook the pool and have outdoor daybeds that are huge!!!
