The Space

Taman Sari is set in a quiet village location enjoying all the delights of traditional Balinese culture yet enclosed by walls giving peace and privacy if desired. The property offers a unique experience for guests wishing to be part of the community yet enjoy the comforts of a large family home with swimming pool and modern amenities. There are 3 rooms for rental, all conditioned with Queen sized beds and en suite bathrooms or shower room, hot and cold water.r. Breakfast and any additional meals and drinks are served in the thatched bar area situated beside the swimming pool. Any guests wishing to cook can use the kitchenette adjoining the bar. A new car and driver can assist guests wishing to venture out and motorbikes and cars are available for rent.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • First of all the provided driver was perfectly on time and picked us up in Ubud. Furthermore on our way to lovina we visited some sights which was a great way to enjoy our drive even more. We had the warmest and greatest welcoming ever!!!!!!! And Yanti and Alec didn't leave it with just welcoming but provided us with EVERYTHING we needed. We felt as part of the family and had a couple of good chats and also perfect food from Yanti. We also extended our stay from 2 to 4 nights for the reasons mentioned above. It was such a great time and thank you for making our trip even more special. I hope the saying "you always meet twice" will someday be true.

  • Yanti and her husband Alec are amazing hosts. We stayed in their home for about one week. I can't find words for the really great days in the house of Yanti and Alec. They have given us a lot of attention and human warmth. The rooms are very sexy & clean. The food, prepared by Yanti, is excellent. I hope to come back soon.

  • A very nice place to stay. Everthing is clean, tidy and the best is great food for breakfast and if you like for dinner. Yati makes beautiful indonesia food. Alec and his family makes the vacation very special. You can get information for trips and sightseeing and even short rides to lovina and other places. The feedbacks on airbnb for alec and his family and their homestay are 100% ok. Do not miss to stay there.

    Alec thanks for everthing. I hope Lorenz and Eko will stay in contact.

    All the best and greetings from germany / bavaria Bodo + Bianca + Lorenz

  • WARNING: This homestay can make you cancel all your other plans and you want to stay there forever! I am serious its just THAT good. Ok lets find some reasons: first of all the rooms are great and very clean, the ac works fine and smooth and the bed is a dream. Its really quiet except no street noises at all. The pool is just perfect for a good cooling after a hot day out. Lovina and signaraja are closeby 5km to Lovina and 8km to signaraja) so make sure to rent a motorbike (the price is really good). Alec got some cold drinks for a reasonable price. Second the tours are great (please say "hi" to Dodi and that i hate him :p) and Dodi (email hidden). He will take you on a great journey to some majestic waterfalls which you really shouldnt miss! If we would have gotten some more time i would have tried out his other trips too. Alec got a boat for some awesome sea trips too! The breakfast... Well its just plain crazy.. Its really a lot of food with fruits great coffee and eggs in all variations. We needed to half it after the first day or we would have blown up. Yanti is a great cook and her offer for a trip to the signaraja market with dinner at evening was a great experience. There are a lot of great warungs at the beach (please give markus a big greeting!) which is just a short way from alecs house. You got a little supermarket at the pet station just 7 minutes down the road. We got a motorbike and just tried out all streets around - there are some great views! Last but not least: alec and his family. They are just great. There are no words to describe it - Cintia is a cute little girl with a winning smile, Eko is a great skater and really awesome to talk too. Yanti is a warm and welcoming host and a perfect cook! And Alec... Hard to describe the englishman. We got some great chats which i will really miss, he introduced me into the life of an expat with awesome insights and we have met some great people with awesome stories. Overall: as i said dont go there or you will get addicted! WARNING END

  • Nous avons passé 4 nuits chez Alec et Yanti. Leur maison est tres jolie comme sur les photos. Nous avons été accueilli par ALec très chaleureusement. Il s 'est inquiété de notre appetit et nous a offert une collation. Delicate attention. Nous avons passé 4 jours très agréable au bord de la piscine et YAnti nous préparé les repas tous les soirs "hum" délicieux. Il ne s 'est pas passé un après midi sans que nous soit apporté jus de fruit , biscuit , mini sandwich ou autre . Et le must du must Yanti s'est mobilisée pour nous récupérer notre sac a dos oublier dans le taxi. MERCI a vous deux pour votre accueil. Je recommande a 150%

  • Staying at Alec and his wife was a 100% home stay experience.
    You will feel like visiting a good friend!
    I had a great (email hidden) as well on a short excursion to Singaragja market and town.
    The both are excellent hosts, with whom you can have great discussions till late night but who also give you room and time for excellent relaxation.
    The breakfast was a great variety of fruits, a variety of egg dishes plenty of toast and marmalade.
    I can only say that when I go back to Lovina I will hope that I can get a room again.

  • Alec & Yanti are the best hosts! Their home was very welcoming and relaxing, also compiled with divine breakfasts and fantastic dinners cooked by Yanti. My son and I felt like extended family!
    Alec and Yanti ensured our short stay was comfortable and they offered and arranged the dolphin tour and any other activities we wanted to do. I highly recommend "Something different in village" in Lovina a place to stay whilst you explore this fantastic part of Bali.
    THANK YOU Alex, Yanti, Eko & Chinta for sharing your wonderful house. Felicity & Denver xx

  • Me and my wife Alena with our son Krish stayed 5 (email hidden). It was such a rememberable time we had with Alec and his wonderful family. Taman Sari is quite, beautiful, clean and with such a host like Alec it is fun. He knows Lovina very well and his knowledge about the local places helps everyone to make their daily trips at same time Lovina knows Alec as well. Everytime when we were at Lovina beach, we have enjoyed the privilage of being Alecs friend. I would also like to mention about their King Size Breakfast. Me and Alena often struggled to finish our Breakfast. Thank you Alec for being (email hidden) and friend. Hope you see you sometime...Greetings
