“Sounds of Nature Vs Civilization's Noise”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

Mumbul guesthouse is located a fair walk from Lovina .

I stayed there 3 nights ...
The room was spacious and clean, huge comfortable bed all covered by mosquito net
The pool is of a good size allowing you to refresh after your day's activities
Owners being internet freaks , their Free net connexion was strong and reliable from room
Their included breakfast was a bit of a disappointment ,
they served me same bread. egg , minced mushrooms/bacon coming along juice and coffee for 3 days

Sounds of Nature Vs Civilization's Noise
being a bit off the mean road
you can still hear traffic going on trucks, cars and bikes
along a concerto of wild life animals during night and an early 4:10 rooster waking up his friends
but Hey.. you are surrounded by threes and rice fields .

Still .. Mumbul guesthouse is a .. between Average and very Good place to be

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We really appreciate getting reviews and we make sure all of our staff also read all the reviews made on Tripadvisor so we can learn and improve from our guests' feedback.

I am sorry that you didn't seem to enjoy the breakfast. Usually we change the breakfast everyday, so guests don't get the same thing. I will check with our staff again to make sure that this is happening. We try to encourage our guests to speak up about any problem they have with our place while they are here so we can do anything we can to rectify the situation.

We are located about 1.5km from central Lovina or Kalibukbuk in the village of Anturan. Yes, it is a bit of a walk to Kalibukbuk, but we provide bicycles for free rent, motorbikes for rent and we also have our own car and employ a driver, if you need to go anywhere.

There are some nice restaurants available within walking distance of our place in Anturan and the gasoline station near our place which is currently being renovated, will have hopefully soon have an ATM machine.

We work hard together with our staff to make our place relaxing and comfortable for our guests. Our aim is to make our place worthy of an 'excellent' review for each and every guest. Certainly this is not always possible, but it is something we take great effort to try and achieve.

This place feels more like a private villa, though obviously with more than one room. The rooms are big (especially the Kalimantan family room which is HUGE) and have nice furniture. The value for money is great with a dvd player, AC and hot water in each room. We stayed in 2 different rooms..Kalimantan and a smaller one. Both were lovely, and very clean, with a nice view over the paddy fields from the rooms. The pool and area around is very small, but clean and tidy and nice to sit about in. The restaurant area is very nice too,and the breakfast was the best we had in Bali with juice and tea/coffee and a nice jaffle/eggs and toast/omelette each day with a little fruit. Only critisism is could have more fruit with the breakfast, and that considering the room prices were quite reasonable, the meals were a little overpriced for our budget and so we couldn't eat here as much as we would have liked.
The staff and owners all seem nice and are very helpful, and the driver that they use, Wayan, is great and gives very reasonable prices (he picked us up from our previous accommodation in Candidasa).
Had a lovely stay, would have stayed an extra night or 2 but they were fully booked!

Room Tip: Kalimantan room is HUGE with a double and 2 single beds for the same price as the others, and has a...

The guesthouse and the ownwers are nice (their son is so adorable!!!)
The rooms are big ,clean and nice but a little bit dim. Swimming pool is lovely.
I love the mango tree... very big mangoes... looks yummy (unlucky me that the owners were there in that area when I was hungry) @(^_^)@

The time that I visted (February) the rice field in front of each room is not so green.
There is a friendly dog which was unlocked at night.

The guesthouse location is not so close to the center (10 mins by driving).

Room Tip: Kalimantan room is big and clean with the open air bathroom which is very nice. (if you're not g...

We booked for two nights but ended up three. Though the weather was bad and the beach isnt that great, we enjoyed our days here.. Just relaxing!

The room was comfy and very spacious. Bathroom was pretty huge! Wifi worked well in the room.

Breakfast was included in the price and was something new everyday and always yummy.. The only thing we couldnt understand was why the fruitplates were soooo small, when fruit is so abundant and cheap in this region.

We had dinner here every night as Kalibubuk is some distance away. We really liked the food!

This place is just next to a paddy field and in the night you can hear all sorts of insects, frogs, and its not far from the beach.

Oh, there is balinese massage available also, which was a blessing after a long busride from Bromo.

We extended our stay here by four extra nights because the rooms are clean, the pool is divine and the food is excellent. Mike and Amanda are excellent hosts and the staff provided very personable service. We would come back again!

We were only there for a couple of days in September but it was very relaxing and a good spot for where we wanted to visit. We had the large end room with outdoor bathroom and TV area in the room. We aren't into large resort hotels so only having a few rooms and small pool suits us and we felt that it was more like staying in a private home than a hotel. Mike arranged for the staff to purchase a whole tuna from the fish market for us and it was cooked on the bbq and shared by all of us on the night, it cost us less than going out for dinner for the two of us! Mumbul is basic accommodation so isn't going to suit the 5 star crowd, but for the price is 100% worth it.
