Me & my husband stayed for two nights at this home stay, we didn't imagine that the place were so natural and green. And the important is this place were so close with Banjar Hot spring only 10 minutes walking distance.
We are surprised that the owner and staffs was so warm and friendly, makes us feel at home. It's not luxury but it has their own Hot spring pool in the hotel, it was a great solution rater than we have to queuing a long Hot spring public pool :p. Food & Beverage are excellent taste & presentation. Privacy is guarantee here! Love it! For sure I will be back again with my family for next trip :)

If you are a hot springs devotee, this is a great place to spend a night or two (especially as there's no other lodging nearby). Banjar Hot Springs is a 3-minute walk next door. Rooms look out over jungle. New, roofed soaking pool uses hot springs water - lukewarm (and clean) and therefore easy to hang out in pool looking over the jungle for awhile.

The hotel food was quite good & very reasonably priced: nicely grilled fish, meaty chicken sate, good veggies. Food and concierge service is attentive and charming.

Those are the reasons we rate this one Very Good. But the condition of the hotel needs work. Rooms need some TLC. Area around the new soaking pool needs cleaning up after recent construction. But it's certainly not bad enough to avoid if you're there for the hot springs, and it would be hard to beat the price. Enjoy!

This hotel is recommended for those who like to stay in natural ambiance.
The hotel is a bit hidden on the way to Banjar Natural Spring. We stayed for a night at the suite room. The room is spacious with big bath room, a balcony with nice view. It's just perfect for a family. The room is extremely clean as well as the garden surround. We found the staffs are so helpful and friendly. They can help providing transport to Lovina and some tourist attraction around the area.
We didnt dine in for lunch and dinner, but we liked their tasty fried rice breakfast.
The location is about 15 minutes to Lovina, 5 minutes to Buddhist monastery, 40 minutes to Pemuteran.

Reviewed 21 July 2012

Stayed here for one night on an overnight trip to Lovina to visit a friend's village. The hotel is right next to the hot springs - they share the same car park.

I booked the suite room, simply because it was so inexpensive to do so - Rp250K per night. The room is perched right at the very top of the quite steep property. If stairs are a problem for you, then I wouldn't recommend staying here. Stairs are everywhere and, in typical Bali style, can be a bit steep and sometimes uneven.

The room itself is huge. Two beds - a double and a single, both with mosquito netting. Air-con and a TV with local channels, most of which have pretty bad reception. The bathroom again, is huge. At one end, a raised bath tub, at the other end, a raised toilet (feel like you really are sitting on a throne, lol) and in between, two cold water shower heads - well, bamboo pipes that the water runs out of, rather than actual shower roses.

The balcony extends the full width of the room and has tables and chairs for relaxing - and an amazing garden view over the property back toward the carpark.

The sound of the stream trickling by is very relaxing at night, then the frogs chime in. It's all very peaceful - until about 4.30am when the roosters and dogs come to life, but that's part of rural Bali :)

I'd definitely stay again. Don't expect much variety from the restaurant - but they do cook a fantastic nasi goreng. And breakfast was simple but sufficient.

Pokdok wisata grya sari is very close to the hot springs. We stayed there for 2 nights and visited the hot springs 4 times.

The downside is the cold water shower which is a problem only if you decide not to visit the hot springs. After the hot springs the cold water doesn't seem to bad.

The other downside was that they didn't have most things on the menu since they don't have many guests, I guess they don't stock up much.

Pondok Wisata Grya Sari is a hotel right by the Banjar Hot Springs at Lovina.
We like onsen and stayed out by the Hot Springs (Air Panas) at the hotel right next door, just down the stairs and across a delightful red bridge over a flowing stream.
This hotel was a great little find. We stayed in the suite (Rp 250,000 a night. The bungalows are Rp 150,000 a night, all with breakfast). The suite is huge, immaculate and our views looked out over the grounds and at eye level with coconut trees! There is no hot water, but we didn't care because we visited the hot springs twice a day and we were happy to take a refreshing cold shower.
I felt utterly re-energised after my first hot spring, there are definate qualities in the water.

This place is immaculately clean and has an open kitchen where you can see the food being prepared.

Now the food...! I have been to Bali 5 times and I have to say that the food here is THE best I have tasted on the Island. Everything 'Pepe' served us tasted a-m-a-z-i-n-g. My husband is usually reserved to comment but he enthused about the food we ate.
We tried a different dish on the menu every time and it never came up short, but rather, always pleased and delighted.
The Pondok restaurant is open to the public and well worth a visit, even if you are staying at a lush hotel in Lovina... the food here is not to be missed!

There is a restaurant at the hot springs, just up the stairs, and we ate there the first time we went to the springs, but it wasn't so tasty. Plus there were many mosquitos and they didn't have coils or lotion and the 'shop' downstairs didn't sell coils or lotion.

It is Rp3000 to enter the hot springs and you can go in and out as much as you want if you are staying at the hotel. Hotel guests can arrive very early in the morning and enjoy the springs by yourself.
Occasionally, in the afternoon the local boys will congregate together and play music and laugh and talk and take a hotspring. You can hear it from the hotel, but it is a beautiful sound, it didn't disturb us as we lay on our beds for an afternoon rest as the sun streamed in our window.

We enjoyed our stay here very much. I recommend a stay here of at least two nights, more if you are into onsen!
