We had very mixed views about the Kelapa hence my overall rating. We loved our bungalow - it was tastefully decorated and a good size and also had a massive bathroom and a big outside shower. Each of the five bungalows have their own outside space which was nice to sit in when it rained! The staff are really friendly and helpful and we couldn't fault them. We also loved the gardens and the pool. The Kelapa is in a very quiet locaton but they do run a shuttle service into Lovina a couple of times a day. There are a couple of resaturants within 5 minutes walking, plus another hotel where you can eat. Whilst we didn't have dinner at the Kelapa we did have lunch a couple of times and it was very good - we thought the food and drink prices were really reasonable.
Why I have mixed views about the Kelapa is as follows: when we arrived, as we were there for Xmas, we were presented on arrival with a special Xmas menu - I am vegetarian and as it didn't include any vegetarian options I asked if it would be possible to do something for me to which I was told no - obviously we didn't eat there on Xmas day, or either of the other two nights we were there. Although the owners live next door, and are often seen at the Villa's, they seemed to us to be lacking in customer service skills as they didn't make any real effort to introduce themselves/speak to us (they did manage hello a couple of times), check if everything was OK etc (perhaps we had been spoilt by where we stayed in Ubud where the owners made us feel very welcome). We were also disappointed by the breakfast - although it was OK it was nothing special, and we were most surprised not to be offered real coffee (only Nescafe) and proper milk - we ended up buying our own as the powdered/condensed milk which we were given is not good in tea or coffee.
The Kelapa can arrange transport for you but we managed to find someone in Lovina who drove us to Sanur at a much cheaper price.
