“Nice place, recommended!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Stayed there a few days and then a few more... really enjoyed the place and the staff is really nice and will help with any question. The place is just fine: bungalows in a garden around a nice pool. Lovely and quiet... And the bed is giant, such a pleasure after so tiny little beds in other places!
Maybe a little expensive as breakfast is not included but not a problem at all. Really recommended!

This is an unique place on this island what feels like a world away from Bali. Friendly staff, helpful owners, a Yoga shack that comes with a great Hatha and Yin Yang teacher (single class about 5 US dollars) and an excellent Diving School, Big Fish.

The Bungalow are basic and clean, and is all you need on a island like this. They have a terrace with a hammock, a perfect place to chill out after a dive or Yoga class. there is also a swimming pool, sun beds and a small restaurant. Only thing missing is a little fridge to stock up on water and basic foods and WIFI. Note iSG is very close to the beach, but this beach is not really the kind of beach you wanna lay down on. Lots of diving boats and trash. But if you walk about 2 kilometers, you find very cute beaches, and a lively ocean.

I stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it! most visitors are cool people, a good mixture of couples without kids and single travelers.

If you looking for a bit of excitement during you stay...bar Blue Lagoon has a pop quiz on Wednesday evening and a decent party on Friday nights. For the rest, do nit expect a lively night life on this beautiful island:-).

Had a very relaxing few days in your bungalows, clean rooms, friendly staff, price reasonable and the island is a real paradise. No complains at all about this place, would recommend to any of my friends. The round beds are funny and huge, enough space for a near 2 meters guys and his really small girlfriend.

Thanks to all the staff for a lovely stay will come back next year for sure!

Pitched as budget accommodation, Secret Garden was, in my opinion, far better than budget. Spacious room, semi-outdoor bathroom, and gorgeous grounds with great swimming pool. No AC or hot water (remember air temperature water is fairly warm anyway), but I wouldn't expect it for this price. It was great value for money and a delightful place to stay. I was here to do some diving with their dive school, Big Fish Diving. Having the dive school on-site was not only convenient, but also made it very social. Most fellow divers stay here, and of course the European and Balinese staff are always around, are super friendly and helpful. Aquatic Alliance is an organisation researching and working to protect Manta Rays, and they are based on-site too. Helen gives incredibly interesting free talks about the Mantas each week.

It was an incredible week. I was disappointed to leave!! Thanks so much to Andrea, Michelle, Budi, Ibu Wayan and everyone for making it so good.

I've been putting off writing this review for some years now as this was my little secret hideaway however with the ever changing signs of tourism to the island its about time I shared it with everyone and hope they enjoy this place as much a I do!
Secret Garden has 8 ( I think ) small simple bungalows set within its own beautiful walled gardens. Each bungalow has its own outdoor bathroom and front veranda with a relaxing hammock to relax in either between diving or just reading your favourite book. The beds are very comfortable and always clean. There is a nice swimming pool to relax in when it gets too hot! This is also where some of the scuba diving training takes place which is quite interesting to watch. Attached to Secret Garden is Big Fish Diving www.bigfishdiving.com which is extremely well run with Western Instructors and dive guides!
The Ambience of Secret Garden is one of peace and quite, it seems that everyone who stays there picks up the level of mutual respect for each other providing a relaxing and friendly stay.
The staff are very friendly and you can hire a motor bike from any of them for a reasonable rate. Although security has never been a problem to my knowledge reception does offer a security box just in case.
The YOGA Shack built in traditional bamboo is also found within Secret Garden and offers YOGA classes twice a day for all levels.

Room Tip: All rooms are good, No 1 & 2 have a round bed, 3 has extra room for a family, 8 has more shade,

I stayed in Secret Garden while diving with Big Fish. Loved these Bungalows, nice and open with big and comfortable beds, quirky and clean outdoor bath/shower was also a plus. Tim, Ibu and staff create a really nice vibe in the place and take a lot of pride in upkeep. The kitchen and bar means there's good food either end of the day. Really nice set-up too, with verandahs with hammocks overlooking the pool, great place to hang out and chill even if you're not diving. Location is great too, just back from the beach and near all the local restaurants and cafes. Tim has a great set-up and friendly staff make this a top place to stay in Lembongan!

Room Tip: Just ask for what you want - twin/ double, near the pool or away from the pool. They'll help you...

On a friend's recommendation, we booked into the Secret Garden for a few days. Within minutes of arriving my friend announced she wouldn't be leaving on schedule with me and would stay a few days more. And she did. The laid back ambience, clean rooms with outdoor toilet area and garden (really, you have to kinda see that one to understand what it means) and the central pool makes for a delightful stay. Andrea, the property manager, is a delight and evenings are often frittered away with chitchat.

On top of that, there's a lovely yoga shala if you'd like a few lessons and a great dive centre to go check out the stellar reefs, mantas and, if you're lucky, a mola mola or two.
