Ich war nur für 2 Übernachtungen bei Alec und Yanti. Ich habe mich sehr willkommen gefühlt und die beiden haben alles getan, damit ich mich wohl fühle. Vom Arrangieren des Dolfin-Trips und der Massage, über gutes Essen bis zum Lift, wohin und wann auch immer ich wollte. Das Zimmer und Badezimmer waren super sauber, der Pool sehr schön und es war für mich einegute Zeit. Vielen Dank Euch beiden!
Host and flat was absolutely great! It was simple and clean. Food was unbelievably good and a lot of activities were (website hidden) was great and friendly, I felt like home and didn't want to leave after 3 days. If you hesitate between south and north of Bali, please don't hesitate anymore and just book here!!!!! You won't regret it.
Yanti, Alec and family are the most friendly, helpful, full concern hostess we did have in our 3 months travel around Asia! It was just like to visit friends in the north of Bali. The place is very clean and comfortable with a lovely breakfast. A nice experience of living in a real balinese neighborhood.
And don't forget to have Bali simply best massage with Made!!!!!!
Yanti and Alec are the perfect hosts. They were always there to offer help or advice. Organising trips and tours through them was very easy and not expensive. Lovely room and pool. Great for cooling off after a hot day. We were going to try several local restaurants for our evening meals but ended up eating at Taman Sari every night. Why? Simply that Yanti's cooking is great, a different meal each night. We went to the market one day with Yanti and Alec to buy the food for the meal and then my wife helped cook it later. Shopping in the market was quite an experience!
After the meal each night we spent quite a time with Alec, chatting, listening to music and having a few beers (or something stronger).
We were treated as part of the family the whole time we were there, arriving as guests but leaving as friends. A pity we could not stay longer. Good luck for the future Yanti and Alec, we will keep in touch.
Yanti and Alex were wonderful hosts and extremely helpful. We had everything we needed and more. They arranged tours and treks for us and also drove us back and forth to local destinations - so no need for taxis.
Lovely breakfasts and other meals were also provided when we felt too exhausted to go out again. Yanti is a great cook.
The room, swimming pool and villa were lovely, clean, comfortable and altogether luxurious. Cleaning & laundry service also provided.
Tours with Komang and Putu are highly recomended and easily arranged, as they come to Taman Sari beforehand to discuss exactly what kinf of tour you require.
Very interesting and entertaining and the day trips to waterfalls, hot springs and the Buddhist temple in Banjar we can personally recommend as well as a day snorkelling.
All in all we had a wonderful time in Lovina with Yanti and Alex and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

staying with yanti and alec was like meeting up with old friends. they were extremely welcoming and we thoroughly enjoyed staying with them and their family.
the room was clean, simple and comfortable. the AC and wifi worked great (better than anywhere else we stayed in bali).
they arranged a guided tour to beautiful lemukih waterfalls. our guide took us off trail and explained lots about the local plants and culture. the breakfasts were tasty and yanti made us a delicious dinner one night.
my husband's sandals had a loose strap, and when i asked for a sewing kit to fix it up, yanti went ahead and fixed it for us.
we spent many hours in the pool and hanging out with alec, the children and their adorable puppy.
in short, we loved our stay. alec and yanti are amazing and accommodating hosts!
When traveling to a new country, a great way to learn about the area is by staying with a local friend. Thats what you get when you stay with Alec & Yanti.
Taman Sari is a beautiful guesthouse in the sleepy town of Lovina. Its in a quiet neighborhood which was easy to find with their directions. Its conveniently located a few minutes from their local beach with a few great warungs (take a walk or scooter. check out Warung Rasta!) and a few miles from central lovina(scooter) where you will find the famous dolphin statue, restaurants, beach and souvenir stalls.
Each morning Yanti makes a delicious breakfast that will keep you full for hours. She was even nice enough to give us a cooking lesson for her amazing fried rice (which we ate multiple nights)
You can hang out in their beautiful pool or relax in their outdoor living/dining room/bar area. Many activities can also be arranged through Alec and Yanti. We wanted messages so Alec called for us & our masseuses arrived in minutes. We took a day boat trip to Menjangan island to go snorkeling which was amazing. But if you do one day trip, you MUST do the waterfall trek with Komang Dodik (He is top rated in the lonely planet guide & very knowledgable about the local people, plants, and history of bali). It was one of our trip highlights.
Alec & Yanti's hospitality was unbelievable. Willing to go above and beyond to make our stay that much more memorable. We will definitely be staying with them again when we make it back to Bali.
