“Quiet oasis”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2011

We have just returned from Bali and Laghawa Beach Inn was our last stop. We booked on the internet for a family room and ended up with a 2 bedroom villa in its own walled garden. Each room had it's own ensuite. One room had a king size bed and the other a double bed.We had our own cooking facilities.
There is a beautiful park like garden which is very inviting and the project of a friendly Aussie who has in a private residence there for some years.
The swimming pool & beach are close by.
Some of the light bulbs had blown but a phone call to reception got a prompt response.
The room was a little musty and obviously not used for a while, however the room had been prepared and airconditioning switched on before we arrived.
The included breakfast was ok choice of American, Indonesian or Continental.
The garden bathrooms were clean and the hot water good. Someone has gone to the trouble of put up mosquito netting there but this has not been maintained.

Room Tip: Villa D was good.

This is my seventh visit to Laghawa
I was met at the airport as usual
There are more opulent places to stay but for value for money you can't beat it----rooms are spacious,& clean,secluded,direct access to the beach with a quaint beach bar & restaurant & is right in the middle of Sanur.
If you are intending to stay longer than a week bargain hard----go for 50% reduction on their original price----you may be pleasantly surprised at what they will agree to.
The grounds are typically Balinese---lush with ornate stone & wood carvings.
To me the quiet relaxation down by the beach with sunbeds & towels readily available is the highlight. The restaurant down by the beach is available for lunch only but is a MUST.
Make sure that Ketut is the chef.She is very good.The table & chairs underneath the expansive trees overlooking the lagoon provide serene surroundings

Stayed October 2010, travelled solo

We moved here from the Swastika (see review Thanks but...) and it's like chalk and cheese.
Ronald (Ronalds InternetCafe) helped but I think that if you just have the bottle to barter you can get a good bargain anyway. Also if you can book on the intenet you'll get a better rate. We booked from Ronalds cafe 2 minutes before we presented ourselves at the hotel and saved a lot of money. We ended up paying £25 per night bb.
This hotel entrance is on the main Sanur street as is the restaurant but the rooms are all at the back so no street noise. The reception is small next to a large sitting area behind the restaurant with a 50's scooter and bicycle in it!
We were given a choice of rooms and picked no 108 as my partner liked the long walk down the corridor to the shower! Walk in with half partition. Good pressure, lots of hot but a smell of drains occasionally mostly when you use the hot. The garden layout is typical with paths winding about with shrubs etc. We asked for more coathangers( only 2 provided) and also extra pillows and a flask of hot water all of which were provided speedily with good grace.
The pool is fabulous and when we were there we had it to ourselves and you could walk on down through private gardens to the beach where there's a little beach cafe.. The garden is so wonderful, it's a haven after the busyness of the main street. I loved it, especially as the hotel was really quiet and it was like my own pool!
Meals were taken in the restaurant by the street with live music on some nights. Balinese groups rendering western songs, also by request. They're better than you might think!!
I really enjoyed my stay at the Laghawa, it wasn't the smartest or the cleanest or the best food but it had character and the staff were nice and the food was good and the pool was fabulous and you could walk your own private path down to the beach. If I win the lottery I would stay there in an instant!!

We stayed in July and took ajoining rooms. We found it very average, Above says it all and breakfast is basic at it's best. It was cheap and you get what you pay for.
Another guest told me his daughter stepped on a cobra in the garden! apparantly there are a couple living in the garden but they're supposed to be docile........

I am a budget traveler and get my moneys worth and more there. There have been upgrades each time I go. If I wanted to stay on the water I would have to spend three times a much. Their pool is what I like most. Yes, it is difficult to get a beach towel after a certain time but what the heck. In the heat you dry off in 2 minutes. The beach area is beautiful and there are now beach chairs down there for hotel guests and as well, good food and drink. This winter will be my 6th time there.

This is the worst hotel i ever been! I have to spend RM 300 to see the skin specialist after staying in this hotel for 1 night. At first the room looked fine until i woke up with some crawling bed bugs all over my arms and my legs! We talked to the receptionist and he didn't even want to switch the room for us. They only refund half of our money after a long wait for their 'on duty supervisor'. Their toilet water has a kind of smell too. When we take a bath, the water just got flooded and it took some time to get drained. To cut it short, don't stay at this hotel or your might ended with the worst nightmare that you ever wanted.
