About this listing
Bali offers plenty of touristic accomodation but few places offer what our Lumbung has to offer. The classic balinese style Lumbung is set amidst traditional rice paddies on the slopes of the northern mountains overlooking the ocean. It does not offer grand luxury but the purest, most relaxed Bali experience you can find - far off the trodden paths.
If you want to go on a hassle-free jungle hike, or bathe in natural, unspoiled pools under waterfalls, look no further.
The north of the Island is A LOT quiter than the south and in many ways a lot more authentic. Driving excursions can take you to hot springs, the craters of Kintamani, Bodugul, wreck diving in Amed or tracking and snorkeling around Permuteran (our favourite!).
Our staff Ayu and Momo can provide cooking, cleaning, laundry and driving/guiding services. All sercvies are available at a small extra cost and can be arranged for individually Momo can also collect you from the airport an dtake you back there. He is very reliable and he will neither hassle you, nor will he ripp you off - a habit that is unfortunately quite common in Bali.
European style food is also available from the tiny (German) family-run hotel next door. We will provide you with clean sheets and towels. The Lumbung is embedded in its environment, insects and frogs sing a beautiful song at night and you can hear the local Tokay call. If you don't like to be close to nature - you may want to look for another place.
On the grounds is a mini-spa set in a koi-pond and you can order a lady to come in for massages at very fair rates.
We can also connect you with a local scooter rental, who can deliver a scooter to you.
The house is a romantic hideaway for two or parents and a small child. There is a small kitchen and the night market of Singaraja is one of the most fun and authentic places on the island. You can buy very fresh fish there that you can bake in the oven.
All in all a very good experience; Carl was helpful in getting everything organized from the time we booked, the property was as described in the advert and the location is stunning.
Lovely stay in the rice fields! Waking distance to beautiful waterfall and 10 km drive to the beach. Small and clean house with basic kitchen but unfortunately we did not have internet connection there.
