“A truly special place to stay in Bali”
Reviewed 25 September 2011

Sananda bungalows offers the experience of the real Bali that is so very hard to find. It is situated in the hills in the north of Bali near Lovina beach but secluded so you feel as though you have truly gotten away from the crowds.

The gardens in which the bungalows are set are truly beautiful and also full of the foods served at meal times. There are pineapples, rambutans, cashew nuts, etc as well as herbs and vegetables. Speaking of the food, for very reasonable prices, you can choose to have lunch or dinner or both on the veranda which has views to the ocean. The Balinese food was divine. Every day we just asked for a surprise and were rewarded with fresh, wholesome food - often a nasi campur - rice with a bit of everything. Breakfast is included and there are a wide range of delicious choices.

The bungalows are very comfortable, large and intelligently designed. Each has a landing with a view and a hammock or banana lounge with tranquil views. There are beautiful statues scattered through the compound, made by staff member, Sheila's husband. You really feel completely relaxed and at one with nature here.

There is unlimited drinking water, coffee and delicious homemade iced teas at no charge, as well as great wifi.

But what really sets Sananda apart is the incredible staff who make you feel like friends and honored guests at once. Nothing is too much trouble and they create a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere. We spent one morning in the village guided by Sheila to visit the houses of some of the staff which was a special experience. Before we leave, we will book another visit. Exceptional.

Room Tip: All bungalows are lovely. The standard rooms have hammocks and the superior rooms have a banana loun...

The place is very quiet, it's a great place to relax. The bungalows are beautiful and the food is amazing every day! The first time we ate real Balinees food, very healthy also. The people that work there are very kind! If you have a problem, they do everything to help you. And the garden is so nice, with many flowers erverywere.
If you want to go to the beach, you can go with the mountainbike or a moterbike.
So it's a very good choice to go there!

What a fabulous place to stay - Gina and her extended family are amazing - they will take care of you and nothing is ever too much. Each bungalow is beautifully decorated and Gina has thought about every detail. The complex is so green and lush - very peaceful and serene.
The food that is cooked is tasty and healthy. A great place to put your feet up and relax. You will need a bike to go in and out of Lovina as it is a bit of a walk - although you actually get to see a little bit of the real Bali if you go by foot. I cannot recommend this place enough if you want some peace and quiet and to be pampered.

Lovely quiet place with a family atmospher where we spend a week. Its a good place to relax, with excellent local balinese food for breaktfast and dinner cookedy by Sheila, she is running Sananda. The staff is very helpful, giving lot of ideas for wonderful day-trips like visiting (not overcrowded) waterfalls or local markets. They organise also rental-bikes / cars. The bungalows are nice, clean, bright and and have very comfortable beds with mosquito net. The open shower is with hot water and sometimes you will a see cute gecko climbing along the wall outside. The pavilion isa perfect place for mediation and reading.. We even could join a traditional hindu ceremony.

A perfect place for inner peace, Sananda and the staff make you feel really welcome. The food is organic (healing herbs from Sananda garden) and delicious, Sheila is a great chef! Jenny and Carlos can make an individual program with Yoga, massage or Ayurvedisch consult. But also a tourist trip with them to waterfalls or holy places will be un unforgettable experience. Or just relax in your hammock with your book and Bintang or a cold Lemongrass tea. Everything in Sananda is done with love and respect for Bali, each other and the nature and that feels very good!
