“For a traditional feel of bali....”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

We stayed at Vila Lumbung for 1 week. We had the upstairs deluxe bungalow and my parents downstairs deluxe bungalow. The upstairs had the most beautiful traditional roof and the room very spacious. We had an extremely large bale (spare bed) in the room which one of our sons slept on. Large bathroom, hot water, but can run out if son stands under shower for too long! Nice size balcony with chairs & bed. I don't think the mosquitos were a problem, there were some there but no more than anywhere else. We used,bushmans which seemed to work well.
Down stairs was the same size room, without the high ceilings. It also had a separate bedroom with a single bed. Bathroom was bigger with a bath and it was semi open.
The breakfast was buffet, only small compared to some hotels but big enough for a good start to the day. Fresh omelettes made to order. The hotel pool is lovely and a good amount of sun lounges. The hotel itself is in need on a few repairs here and there but nothing major! Boys loved there was a games room where they could play pool and table tennis. Gym is in there too but just is a couple of steppers and bikes. Staff were always helpful, although some did struggle with English, but there was always someone there who could understand. Always smiling.
Having never stayed in semiyak b4 felt a bit lost, but it was on the same road as Sarong restaurant, just a couple of shops away. Also Biku and Huu bar in walking distance.
If you are looking for a modern hotel don't stay here, but if you want to feel like you are in Bali this is a great place to stay. Loved it.

Room Tip: 9a &b , also 8a &b are near pool

The Vila Lumbung is a rare thing indeed. A haven less than a minute away from the hustle of Jalan Raya Petitenget. Beautiful grounds, lush, tropical and spacious. Pool was lovely. We had a deluxe bungalow with a great balcony, couldn't ask for better. It has old world charm, yet with all modern conveniences. It is a 10 minute walk to the heart of Seminyak, but a 5 minute walk to some fantastic dining experiences. Staff were warm and friendly, my daughter and I loved this place and cannot wait to get back.. Oh and the breakfast is great for variety and freshness.

Room Tip: Upstairs deluxe bungalow I love a balcony

This hotel was so good that I would want to stay there, The staff are really nice and the pool is great and the food was perfect. The bedrooms were lovely and just living a sign outside your room you can come home to a beautiful made bed. There is a small DVD shop just 5 minutes away and another big DVD store around the corner. There is a pancake restaurant just a 10 minutes away and those pancakes are like a boss. This hotel and 5 class service and food for a 4 star hotel. i love this place and it's like a mini castle there are so many cool things about this room.

Room Tip: Look for a good maid!!!!! and food

Great place for the family. Off the beaten track but close to great restaurants, shops etc. We have returned 4 years running and love the Deluxe bungalow. The staff are wonderful and make us feel at HOME. Love it.

The Vila Lumbung is a really pleasant place to stay but it's not in the main Seminyak area and a bit of a walk from the beach. We cut through the W Hotel to get to the beach (now that did look nice)!

You can walk into Seminyak in about 30-40 minutes or take a taxi. We found taxis charges us about 50000 Rupiah to get back to the hotel late at night.

The huge reception area was a welcoming space and the staff were very friendly.

Our room was at the block at the back of the resort and the entrance wasy wasn't that appealing, felt like we were using the cleaners entrance! There is free and quite fast wifi throughout the resort though you need to keep logging in.

The pool was really nicely designed with bridges and abig waterfall splash pool and jacuzzi. The water was cool to enjoy bathing in. There are plenty of sun loungers around the pool and a small hut giving out beach towels.

I enjoyed the breakfast buffet and the serve until 11am which is great when on holiday! Didn't try the spa but the prices, though above the local street, seemd OK for a hotel.

The main road outside the resort has a few restaurants, spas and convenience stores but is far enough away so the traffic cannot be heard.

I didn't think the room cleaning standard was that high, a couple of extra hairs that weren't ours! Did get a few mosquito bites whilst staying here but there isn't much they can do about that.

There is a gym but it is a pathetic excuse for a gym with 4 very old and run down pieces of equipment, they would be better off just getting rid of is as it is a bit of an embarrassment.

This is a nice place to stay if you want to get away from it all and don't mind being a bit out of town.

Room Tip: The villas seemd nicer but didn't get to see inside.

Hotel Lumbung is a nice place to stay although there are a few things that could be perfected. The shower in our room was a mere stream of water and the games/ gym room lacked correct equipment. Although the hotel is very clean with friendly staff and the pool is beautiful.

A great haven to retreat to after a busy day.The staff were absolutely fantastic people, it is located within walking distance or a small taksi fare ($2) to many great restaurants and beach clubs. The breakfast spread keeps you going for the most of the day and the rest of the menu is also good..Great money changer within 30 metres of the gate and many convenience stores within 5 min walk.The property is not brand new, but the bungalows are in the traditional lumbung (rice storage shed) style, and have a charm of their own. They have all the facilities you could want for and are presented in a clean and tidy fashion, the out door bathroom is great. There are some mosquitoes that they are spraying regularly, but that problem is not restricted to this property. We had a great time hanging out by the pool and would recommend.

Room Tip: The downstairs bungalows with outdoor bathrooms are a treat
