This was our 17th trip to Bali & our 8th stay at Vila Lumbung. When we first stayed at Vila Lumbung it had just opened & was set amidst small houses & rice fields however anyone knowing Bali now, realises it is now set in the 'chic' area of Seminyak which boasts both upmarket shopping & dining. Vila Lumbung is within easy walking distance of these attractions yet far enough away to still be quiet & a real haven for those needing somewhere to relax & unwind.
It has a wonderful pool area, great restaurant that has just been extended with a top quality menu & prices that are not over the top as some hotels. The bungalow rooms are huge & a real slice of Balinese architecture whilst the new hotel style rooms are still quite big & comfortable. Any room in the complex is no further than 50 metres from the pool, restaurant or reception areas. Once inside the hotel grounds there is absolutely no outside noise to hinder your relaxation. If travelling in a family group the bungalows have a huge day bed which can be made up for 2 or maybe even three kids of an evening. The hotel has a lovely 2 tiered swimming pool with swim up bar, waterfall & turbo pool to relax those aching muscles after a hard day shopping or touring.
However Vila Lumbung's real strength lay with it's staff. From Senior Management right through to the gardeners & room staff, they are so genuinely friendly & ever so helpful. These people are not 'Kuta Cowboys' but the Balinese real deal. Anyone who has visited Bali will understand what I am talking about & anyone wishing to visit Bali will hopefully enjoy a real Bali experience of mixing with these wonderfully kind & gentle race of people.
Vila Lumbung is somewhere I would recommend to anyone needing a quiet haven that is close to all the action of Seminyak, Legian & Kuta. There is also many great restaurants within an easy stroll of the hotel & these range from moderately priced with great food to those at the high pricing end of the restaurant scene.
Vila Lumbung could probably do with a few more pool beds for really busy times & a little better variation in the music piped around the restaurant & pool area & they are the only criticisms I can offer. If anyone would like to contact me about this property I would be only too happy to try & help with any questions.
