About this listing

Probably one of the most favoured accommodations in the Lovina area, run by Airbnb "Super Hosts" having gained this achievement on 5 star ratings. We offer a special something that is hard to describe but READ OUR REVIEWS. Fast efficient fiber optic WIFI for those in need just catching up or for business purposes. We aim to make your stay memorable and arrange all transportation, motorbike rental and some of the best day trips including snorkeling, diving and trekking to waterfalls locally.

The space

“Taman Sari” is a great place to stay if you are looking for the true Bali experience. We are a large property set in a village location surrounded by walls to give seclusion. All our neighbors are hardworking locals going about their day to day business who love the opportunity to chat with our guests. We are located only a few minutes from the local fishing village of Anturan and five minutes’ drive of Lovina Central. Singaraja the old capitol City of Bali is around fifteen minutes’ drive. From the moment you arrive we will try to make your stay comfortable and stress free allowing you to relax and slowly plan what you would like to do and see whilst you are staying with us. We will also plan your onward journey and organize all transportation for you in house so you not need worry whilst you are here.
Our rooms are comfortable and overlook the swimming pool. The rooms offer good, queen size beds (we can also arrange a single bed for child if required). Air conditioning is standard to all rooms and there is a clean, functional bathroom with bath and shower, wash hand basin and W.C. Hot and cold water is standard to all rooms.
Within ten metres of the rooms, there is a thatched bar/ restaurant area beside the pool offering a comfortable place to take breakfast and any additional meals as well as enjoying a relaxing drink in the evening. Music is available either by YouTube (you choose) or there are several guitars that you are welcome to play. A hard drive with some films is also connected to the TV for your enjoyment. Should you wish for peace and quiet this is entirely up to you and good fibre optic WI.FI extends over the property. A relaxing Balinese massage beside the pool is a must to unwind at the end of the day. We run an honesty policy where you help yourself to drinks and write down what you take from the fridge. Adjoining the bar area is a kitchenette for guests use if required for limited cooking and preparation. Meals are served to order the most popular being our Indonesian buffet which must be ordered one day in advance. The buffet can be made suitable for vegetarians and has been highly complimented in our reviews. All food is bought fresh and served on banana leaves for that authentic feel.
Our day excursions include, trekking to some of the best waterfalls in Bali where you will meet very few tourists, see coffee plantations, rice fields, numerous herbs growing and swimming and jumping into pleasantly Cool Mountain fed pools. Another favorite day out is a visit to Menjangan Island where you can snorkel in crystal clear waters over some of the best coral reefs in the world. Diving is also available here either a one day introductory dive or a two/ three day open water dive course with Padi certificate on completion. A visit to the hot springs and Buddhist temple are also recommended as is the sunrise dolphin trip. On all our trips, guests are picked up and returned to “Taman Sari”. We have a good reputation to uphold and accordingly use only the best guides and diving companies. Every review we have received regarding our excursions have been highly complementary, this surely speaks for its self.

Our 10 days holiday at Alec and Yanti were fantastic! They have a beautiful house with nice rooms and a pool in the garden. Everything was clean and we felt very comfortable and like at home. For us it was perfect to have a relaxing time there. Every morning we've got a wonderful breakfast with fresh fruits, eggs and good coffee. Alec was always there to help us with any kind of questions or to have a good talk. He has a very big heart. Yanti is making selfmade donuts-they are so delicious, we really loved them! They have nice children and we felt always welcome. We had a absolutely good stay there and we would absolutely recommend to stay there!!!

When I think about Yanti and Alec's place, the designation of "superhost" is clear underevaluation. They truly deserve a rank of "tripple superhost." I don't need to repeat all what previous reviewers wrote about their hospitality, friendliness, comfort of the house, etc. It has been said many times and - I am sure - will be repeated by dozens of future visitors. But there was something about their home which truly made a huge difference for me. Somehow, after first couple of hours, I felt like I came back home after long journey. Yanti's and Alec's place has this distinct "good vibe and energy." Their lives aren't easy as are the lives of many international couples who live far away from the comforts and standarts most of us are accustomed to. Yet, in their home they manage to maintain this high level of standarts in everything: hospitality, in first place. What else? Yanti is great cook, Alec is great storyteller, they have two wonderful and very sociable children and many many local friends...I only wish I had a chance to stay longer, but...perhaps their home would be the main reason for me to come back to Bali? Thank you for everything, Alec and Yanti! You made a very big difference in my journey to Bali! Alexei

We stayed 3 nights at Alecs & Yantis place. From the beginning the communication was perfect. When we arrived Alec picked us up from the gas station as our driver couldn't find the place :-) but it was no problem at all for Alec. Once we arrived we were welcomed very warm also with a cold drink & from the first moment we felt like being "home". Alec organized us as well 2 trips with a great guide. You shouldn't miss these opportunities! Breakfast was always very yummy and we got everything we wanted or needed - Alec or Yanti were always around ... really - this is a great place to stay! You should try this out!!! Thank you very much for a great stay at your place Alec & Yanti

The drive to Taman Sari in the north from airport in the south was long and interesting. It took a little over 4 hours including some currency exchange, a yummy local lunch and some tea in the mountains. Gede, our driver was extremely cooperative and he drove us safely. It is located in a quiet village, Anthuran, about 15 mins drive from Lovina Central. An open dinning area overlooking a small pool and a few rooms, upkept garden completes the well maintained property. I must say Alec and Yanti were very hospitable from the time we checked in until we left. We were given all the required attention and they helped us get dinner, arrange for transportation, renting scooter, going scuba diving, massage by the pool, finding popular eat-outs and everything else. The breakfast every morning was exotic and healthy. Had interesting long late night chats with Arak and Alec ;) Sure to come back again next time we are back in Bali!

this is a great spot to relax and explore the areas around Lovina. The room is spotless simple, but comfortable and right next to a lovely soaking pool. breakfast is delicious! i can't imagine what the bigger bfast would be as the platter of fresh fruit and plate of eggs and toast is more than enough! yanti and alec are wonderful hosts, courteous and helpful. they're guide is wonderful and planned a great trek for us. the house is in a quiet little village outside of lovina (short drive) but it's perfect to escape the hustle and bustle of bali traffic. i'd stay again! thank you for all the care & concern and great conversations! happy new year!
