When you arrive at Vila Lumbung you are greeted with warm smiles, and this continues with eveyone we came accross, be it restaurant staff or ground staff. I like to low rise garden setting resorts which have a big pool and a swim up bar (look if I need to keep an eye on the kids I want to be able to have a bevvy at the same time!). We had and an adjoining room on the ground floor and this I would reccommend as you enter off the verandah area with direct access to the gardens or pool (Rms103,104,105 or 106 seem the best). I have seen the villas and look great but to be honest, your never in your room anyway so get what we did and you will be fine. If there is a big group, say 6-8, take a villa (18a,b,c) and it would be more economical, it has 3 doubles and 2 singles so good for fams with kids.
There were many mosquitos and the hotel sprayed the rooms one day but they are peresistent litter biters (but it is apporaching wet season so their may be more now than other months). I would strongly reccomend aerogard and use it every evening, even before bed as we all know kids get bitten bad no matter which county you are in. Also spray your room whenever you leave. The rooms are basic but fine and the shower head his hand held but for AUD 110 per night, who is complaining. Just remind cleaners to change bed sheets, not that you should have to but we noticed this on a couple occasions. The restaurant brekky was fine, the ususal stuff, bacon , chef cooking omletees etc and we were very full each morning, lunch pool menu were great, no complaints there (about $10), local beer bintang-but drink it slowly until you get used to it or it will go thorugh you ($3.50) heineken ($5), cocktails (expensive for bali at $10). Happy hour 30% off 4-6pm. Still, when you really look at it it was very affordable given ehat you pay in a hotel in Aus. I would like to see the staff wander around the pool a bit more for service but you so relaxed there it doesnt really bother you.
There is a kids slide and waterfalll they jump in and out of, but no lifegurad so be onto it. I reccomemend a massage, for $12 how can you go wrong, just go to the lady direct, dont book through reception.
All in all you go to Bali to chill out, the balinese are a very relaxed lot and this is evident in Vila Lumbung.
