We stayed in Vila Lumbung for 2 nights, and were immediately disappointed upon arrival. We booked a "vila" large enough for 4 people, but the adjoining room was pretty disgusting, so we asked to move to another spot. The 2nd vila was just as bad, so we decided to remain in the initial one. We just weren't impressed with the room at all, and confused on why they call it a vila, when it's really a glorified duplex with a bottom and top room.
Breakfast was laughable. We travel extensively across Asia, but this was by far the worst breakfast we came across. There was so little selection both mornings, and what we did eat was terrible. The service was also poor. Most of the those working the desks and grounds were fairly young and completely unaware of our presence or need. I felt like they were annoyed with any of our questions or requests. This was a huge change from the 1st 1/2 of our vacation in Ubud.
On the positive, I was able to get to the beach each early morning for surfing via a 5 min taxi ride for $1 USD, and get back for the same. Also, Seminyak was a great location as we hired a private driver to tour a lot of Bali each day.
We knew Seminyak would be expensive, but felt ripped off with the $150 USD price each night.More
