My friend and I booked this hotel at the last minute and couldn't be happier with our choice.
We stayed in a superior twin share room which we found to be clean and comfortable.
We spent most of out stay relaxing by the pool, which with two levels (lower with a swim up bar) was large, deep, and plenty of room for all guests.
We ate all breakfasts at the villa, good range of buffet, pastries, cereal, assorted hot food and great omelettes. The staff were friendly and helpful.
Only 20mins max to Kuta for shopping and good restaurants nearby.
We did eat in for dinner one night for a mongolian feast that was very enjoyable with balinese dancers for entertainment.

The only bad points I can think of was the place could bit cleaner, in so much as picking up leaves around the villas, the pool needs a bit of a scrub with some minor moss growing, but I am being very picky in that respect.......
Great cheap massage place few doors down the road, excellent organic restaurant next door and 24hour mini supermarket also very close by...
Beach for great sunsets 10/15minute walk away.
Very basic "fitness centre" stationary bikes and elliptical trainers that I should have used as I ate way too much of the great breakfasts and poolside lunches...

Having visited Bali only months ago with my husband and daughter, staying in Ubud and Kuta, I had a good cross section of accommodation to compare with. This trip was with 2 girlfriends and Vila Lumbung impressed all of us. With traditional style buildings and beautiful gardens and pool it was perfect. I don't like staying in five star resorts with no traditional buildings as you could be staying in a local hotel in Australia.
We had an upstairs villa overlooking the pool. The room was large, clean and comfortable. As there were three of us one had to sleep on the day bed which was a little on the hard side but huge. The bathroom was big and beautiful.
We even had a mouse come to visit.... he did like our fruit. If only we could have turned off the rain.
My only complaint would be breadfast. Very very average. Not a lot of variety.
Though there are some really good eating places .
Head out the gate and turn left, within a couple of minutes walk there are some great places to eat and the best cheap massage.

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!

I've actually stayed at this hotel twice. What I like about it is it's excellent location and it's great value. It's not what I'd call indulgent but you get what you pay for and then some. The big plus's include a lovely pool, which is never over crowded, friendly staff, decent and included buffet breakfast, excellent by the pool massage and clean well equipped rooms. On the negative side it can look a bit tired in places, but for the price I think that is absolutely fair. I've only stayed in the Superior Rooms, never a Villa, so this review is based on my experience based on this.

We stayed 6 nights at Vila Lumbung. We booked the deluxe Villa, that has a spacious room with shower and bath outside has we stayed in ground floor. The bed was the best we had in our stay in Bali. The breakfast doesn't have many variety of food for us, portuguese healthy couple, as they offer nasi goreng, fried bacon and stuff like that in the morning, and there's no natural juices or milkshakes.
The hotel has construction undergoing in the pool area, and we think that the guests should be adviced when booking. Because of the work the water and the bottom of the pool are a little bit dirty so we didn't even tried it.
The hotel has beautiful gardens, and it's a short walk from the beach. But the beach it's awfull!! Black, dirty sand, and a beach break with some dangerous looking waves. We rented a moto for all the 6 days because we stayed previously in Tanjung, and Nusa Dua beach and all the reef breaks in Padang Padang area are much more pleasant for sunbathing and surf.

The highlight of Vila Lumbung was the bed - it had the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. The room also included a day bed which was fantastic for reading a book on a hot day. Everything was clean and hygienic and the shower was great. The only negative about the room was the dim lighting - made reading at night difficult. The service was satisfactory, as was the food - nothing spectacular though. The pool was lovely. The worst thing about Vila Lumbung is the location. It is somewhat isolated which means you really have to taxi everywhere, unless you love walking. However, this does make it a quiet place to stay. We began our honeymoon here and it was definitely a great place to begin a relaxing holiday.
