The Space

This is a must for those guests who want to experience Balinese life and culture before it completely disappears . We are set in a quiet village location surrounded by real Balinese people yet enclosed by walls giving privacy if required. This is a large family home owned by Indonesian and English couple with two children. We can arrange all travel for day outings in house and have a new car and driver if required. motorbikes and cars can be rented through us. Airport pick up and drop of can also be arranged. We also have our own traditional out rigger boat for dolphin watching, fishing, snorkeling or just a run out to sea at sun set.
A good hearty breakfast is included and other meals can be arranged to suit all diets. Indonesian and western food are available. We know you will enjoy your stay with us. Only 5mins drive central Lovina, 15mins Singaraja and a 5 to 10 min walk to Anturan beach with its fishing community . Try out your bargaining skills at local markets and cook your acquired produce in our guest kitchen adjoining our bar area. We are here to see you enjoy yourself and make the most of a couple of days stay at Taman Sari.

Have 3 rooms which we currently let so can accommodate 6 adults plus some kids. See our other listings. (subject to availability )

  • We stayed 3 nights at Yanti's and Alec's homestay and had a pleasant time! We enjoyed the pool and very clean and nice room as well as the great support for activities and lovely extra services. Thank you for making our short break at Lovina so relaxing and stressfree.

  • The house and rooms are lovely, light and airy and clean and the pool is wonderful to cool off in after a long hot day :) Yanti and Alec were very attentive hosts who really went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable and enjoyable, from providing the biggest, best breakfasts in Bali to doing laundry, giving lifts and arranging tours and activities for me. Dodi, their friend who gives personalised tours around North Bali, introduced me to some of the most beautiful places I've seen in Bali and took me to a genuine holy man! Very nice stay, thank you.

  • Our stay at Taman Sari was lovely. Yanti and Alec are the perfect hosts and you will immediately feel welcome at their home. They responded quickly to our last minute inquiry and about 30 min later Alec picked us up at our meeting point. The neighborhood is nice and quiet and the neighbors very friendly.
    Alec and Yanti catered to all our needs, passed on informations and did everything to make our stay unforgettable. It was easy and comfortable for us to stay there with a small baby. The baby girl specially enjoyed the pool and her big bowl of fresh fruit for breakfast. Anyway the breakfast was tasty and there was plenty of food.
    Unfortunately we only stayed one night. We consider to come back and maybe join Alec on his boat....
    I can really recommend Taman Sari!!!!

  • Staying at Tamari Sari was a great experience. Yanti and Alec definitely go the extra mile to ensure that our stay was pleasant. The house was clean, well kept and breakfast was great. Not only I would recommend you to spend time here, but, if I was you, I would make sure to take the time to talk to both of them and find out what life on Bali is really about. So far, the best host I have found.

    Thank you all for the wonderful time. Elisa and I will never forget it.

  • Alec and his wife are wonderful hosts.They will help you with everything, renting scooters, organizing trips, etc.
    Yanti made us delicious breakfast with fruits, banana pancakes, fresh juices and scrambled eggs.
    The house is in a nice and quiet area and everything is new and clean. We really enjoyed sitting outside and the pool at night after a long day.
    We would recommend this place to everyone and thank you Alec for having us there :)

  • I had the privilege to stay with Alec and his family initially for 3 days, but ended up extending another 3 more days until my last day at Bali! The reason..... I felt so at home and relax that there wasn't any other reason to move to another place to stay...

    The rooms are lovely, big and clean. Alec, Yanti and their family are so accommodating and hospitable to their guests. They always prepare the best breakfast befit for kings and queens! Family with children as well as solo travellers would love this place as there are many relaxing things to do such as the home swimming pool, walking along the paddy field and a short walk to the beach.

    Alec will also be available to arrange to your needs and organise any other activities you would like.

    Kudos and Bravo to a lovely homestay in Lovina!

    Thanks Jimmy, good to meet you. Have a great Christmas in Malaysia, regards to family.. Enjoy the rest of your travels. Hope to meet up again one day. (just made some mango chutney, would have gone well with your curry!)

  • Our stay was really wonderful. It's such a beautiful place.
    The accommodation is very clean and brandnew. The aircon in the room is quiet. The breakfast was superb: fresh fruits, scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, pancakes, hot and cold beverages.

    Alec and his wife are so much hospitable. Alec's wife cooked for us very delicious indonesian dishes. They are incredibly friendly and helpful. Alec informed us about the best places on bali, organized motorbike or massage, served snacks and sweets in the afternoon. Great :-)
    We really enjoyed the place, staying there was an unforgettable experience. We would absolutely recommend it to anyone !!!
