After spending five days in busy Ubud, my boyfriend and I headed north to the coastal town of Lovina and stayed in the Nugraha Lovina Bay Resort Hotel. After having such a great stay in Ubud this resort had a lot to live up to. The hotel was a mixed bag with some good and bad points.
The hotel staff were very friendly, helpful and polite, particularly young Arik at reception. The complex was very nice, with a lovely sea view from both our bedroom and the terrace restaurant area. The swimming pool was also nice, but the tranquility was slightly spoiled by the construction work going on beside it. Just bad timing for our visit.
The bedroom was spacious with a balcony which was great for watching the sunset in the evening. There were complimentary drinks in the mini bar and we were even given a fruit bowl every two days which was a good touch.
The hotel staff all work hard and are eager to please, but the restaurant staff need to keep terrace area cleaner as it is a hunting ground for ants and flies. There was often some food left on the tables and chairs which resulted in hundreds of ants swarming around. The flies are also a nuisance and it is a tough job keeping them off your food. All the hotel needs to do to remedy this is to clean up immediately after diners leave their tables.
The hotel food is ok, but the breakfast buffet isn't great. I recommend that you stick to the omelettes, which are made to order, and the pancakes with honey which are tasty.
The Wifi only works at reception, the restaurant terrace and at the pool. This is for information only and not a criticism of the hotel.
Finally to the location of the hotel, which was a bit far out of the town centre for my liking. We like to walk, but there was no pavement so the only safe way to get to town is to get a taxi.
Overall this is a quite good hotel and if you are happy to have a lazy few days in the sun by the pool this could be the place for you.
