“Amazing hospitality and hotel, truly memorable”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

I stayed here with my partner over New Years for 4 nights in the Deluxe Suite with view of the mountains. From the moment we got there the staff were all so amazing, friendly, always on the look out to help, seriously the best and most friendly service i have ever experienced anywhere.

Although i really wanted a seaview room (booked very late and was booked out) i LOVED the view of the mountains and enjoyed sitting on the balcony reading and watching the villagers in the field. It also made the perfect place to watch the millions of fireworks going off all across the mountains on New Years.

I wish we had more chill out time to enjoy the hotel more but we did get to use the beach chairs one day while relaxing with a drink and book. the weather being around new years was a little dicey so never got to swim in the ocean but looked stirred up and uninviting at the time. Also i didn't get to use the pools once either but loved the fact there were two and they looked great.

When i went to do a swim with dolphins and twice when we wanted to go out for a meal we were given free rides by the hotel shuttle almost straight away which was great.

The main thing i need to give attention to is that we'd booked to be a part of the New Years Dinner but on the day i came down with food poisoning and attempted to go down for a while but had to leave shortly after, we rang up reception to see if we could waive the fee as it was quiet a lot (as most bali hotels are on new years) even though we'd be ticked off and they kindly obliged which was really nice. Despite being sick we still enjoyed our new years watching millions of fireworks going off from the comfort of our balcony, it was epic!

My only con from our entire stay would be the average breakfasts, which we didn't enjoy to much although some of the balinese dishes like the chicken stirfry was good (just not very breakfasty). But in saying that it was edible and there were options of hot and cold stuff, and good pastries. One morning when my partner was feeling sick i ate alone and asked if i could bring a plate back to the room and in saying that i was instantly helped in getting together a variety of things for him and they insisted they would carry it to the room for me, again going above and beyond and great service.

I almost forgot to mention the awesome room service! We ate in 2 nights we loved the food on the menu so much and it was all so well priced. We had great pizzas and toasted sandwiches.

When i return to North Bali i won't look any further then this fabulous hotel and beautiful friendly staff, i highly recommend!

Thankyou to everybody at The Lovina for such amazing hospitality and making it such a great stay for us for our first time in North bali, we will be back!

Room Tip: I usually prefer sea view but the deluxe suite with mountain view was great! Especially over New Yea...

My third trip to Bali and this had to be my best experience. The Lovina proved beyond my expectation. As a solo traveller, I was apprehensive and nervous but soon found my way around the beautiful gardens. All the staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. I had all my meals at the resort, mostly at the beach bar and I felt safe and secure. The food was perfect and I tried every Indonesian meal on the menu. I went for many relaxing and safe walks along the beach and into the village. The dolphin boat trip was interesting and I was lucky to see the full moon fading and the early morning sun rising at the same time. The dolphins were evasive which didn't worry me, I got a glimpse of a large pod, but naturally they are going to avoid a mass onslaught of boats chasing them. I was on the dolphins side and it bothers me that they get stalked every morning. I would rather see the boats get into a position and sit and wait, at least they didn't try and entice them with food. In future I would just rather go out on a boat trip and leave the dolphins alone. I was sad to leave this beautiful place but have made a promise that I will return next year. Thank you to all the staff at the Lovina, particularly Happy, Ricky and my very special friend the pool cleaning man. His son is an artist and I shared my silly paintings with him. It was nice to have some one to talk to, even though there was a bit of a language barrier. I think that just made our chats that bit more enjoyable. Hope to see you all next time.
Cheers from Miss Chris

We stayed 5 nights in a 2 bedroom beach suite, we had our 89 year old Mother/mother in Law with us and she was treated like royalty by the staff. Our suite was just fantastic and beautifully clean. We used the facilities at the resort to the full, the sparkling pool and beach bar, sunset dining on the beach, room service. The well set up gym with toilet and shower, the great massages from the Body Tonic Spa ( including my mother -in-law) and the tour desk and shuttle service. Wonderful holiday Lovina, many thanks, hope to be back again.

My partner and I had a beautiful time here, had a room by the pool, very spacious and clean. The pool is just beautiful, big clean and inviting. Pool bar and restaurant were in a fantastic setting, right in the beach. Good selection of food and impeccable service. Could not ask for more. Spa was well worth the visit.

The Lovina brings the relaxing resort experience to it's peak! Away from the maddening crowds, and with a pool only steps from the room, it's "the" place to get away from it all. The food (especially the wood oven pizza) is wonderful, and the prices are far more reasonable than elsewhere in Bali. I'd stay again in a minute!

Recently stayed for 7 nights. Surprised on arrival at how much nicer and larger the resort is compared to what we expected and was shown on the website. Beautiful grounds, rooms, location and pool areas. Breakfast was good and the meals and snacks at the pool bar were all good. My only gripe would be the beer was not cold enough at the pool bar and the coffee at breakfast was awful (Ask for machine coffee at breakfast very nice). Staff were all pleasant and a few, Ricky, Happy and Debbie would have to be the some of the friendliest, happiest, helpful staff we have encountered in Bali. We would like to thank a previous reviewer MVM81 for rating this property as poor as now after looking at her other reviews that are excellent we are looking forward to being blown out of this world at how good these places must be.

Dear Thor47,

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience and positive impression about our resort!
Also thank you for your honest feedback about our beer which was not cold enough that time, We do apologize for that.
We will ensure that the next beers served are absolutely cold.
I hope you are willing to give us a second chance to impress you with our beers and our resort in general on your next visit to Bali.

My family and I stayed at The Lovina a week ago and absolutely loved it! We had a Terrace 2 Bedroom Pool Villa with amazing views of the beach. 2 good size bedrooms upstairs with a decent size living area downstairs. Beautiful private pool and own day bed to relax on outside too. The staff were all very warm, friendly and professional! Try one of the wood fired pizzas they were delicious! Good location, only about a 10 min walk to more restaurants and bars. Also tried the half day spa package at the hotel and it was out of this world! Definitely recommend this resort with no hesitations, we will definitely be back!
