The north of Bali offers a lot of excellent facilities and it is not as touristy as the south. Prices in the north are 30% lower compared to the south.

- The Damai Hotel, a world class restaurant with a star kitchen located in the scenery mountain area near Lovina, is recommended. They serve a brunch on sunday.

Spice Beach Club, Wine and dine at the seaside, new beautiful place.
Boete has a very nice set up in Lovina. He had a driver meet us at Denpasar airport and we had a very enjoyable drive to Lovina over the mountains where we visited with the charming monkeys. The drive is long (at least 3 hours), but worth it, as you can see the beautiful country side and Lovina is a charming and quiet beach town. The property the villa is located on is absolutely gorgeous. We resided in the back villa (villa #2) and spent most of our time on the outdoor patio where we could see the beautiful garden flowers, pond with fish, and inspirational statues. We'd go to the front for a swim. It was easy to share the pool with the guests in the front villa. Kadek is the housekeeper and gardner who also gives great massages in the front 'pavilion'. She is awesome with giving local advice on places to eat and with arranging snorkeling and fishing trips with Ketut - a local fishermen up the street. Boete checked in on us twice and helped fix a couple lights. Everything else was in perfect order. We loved staying at this coast side villa and enjoyed the tranquility of the garden, local scenery, and awesome outdoor bathroom. A daily walk up the street to the bakery for breakfast and a nightly walk to the beach to watch the sunset were a welcome routine. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Good value accommodations in ideal location, close to beach and good restaurants. The pool was small but served purpose of cooling us off. Recommended.
We had a wonderful stay in the villa, with a view to ricefields. The place is not far from the beach or the venter of Lovina. Made the driver that Boete recommended were so nice! Boete was easy to e-mail and quick to respond if anything required help from him!
We had a wonderful stay in Lovina!
The villa was beautiful just as we expected it to be... actually even better. We fell in love with the villas amazing bathroom.
The staff was as nice and helpful as can be. A big thank you to Made who made our stay unforgettable by showing us the best his island has to offer.
Also special thanks to Boete for providing us with yougurt and cucumber after we got a crazy sunburn. :-D
We will be back for sure.
Die Tage bei Boete waren für uns ein voller Erfolg! Die Villa ist superschön und die Lage einfach toll, da man schnell am Strand und auch im Zentrum von Lovina ist und trotzdem in einer beschaulichen Seitenstrasse, in der man das normale Leben spürt. Ganz in der Nähe ist eine deutsche Bäckerei - nach vier Wochen in Asien haben wir frisches Baguette und Croissants sooo genossen! Boete hat uns herzlich begrüsst und auch die Housekeeperin ist supersympathisch. Alles war in bester Ordnung, sie hat täglich saubermacht. Zufällig wohnte in der zweiten Villa eine Familie mit Kindern im gleichen Alter wie unsere, das war ideal zum Spielen am Pool. In der Küche haben wir mehrmlas gekocht, auch das war eine willkommene Abwechselung für die Kinder. Am zweiten Tag hat sich ein Fischer bei uns vorgestellt, mit dem wir morgens zu den Delfinen gefahren sind. Er kennt sich gut aus und wir waren alleine mit ihm auf dem Meer - ganz im Gegensatz zu anderen, mit denen wir gesprochen haben, die mit fast 80 Bootem im Pulk unterwegs waren und nichts gesehen haben. Alles in allem kann ich den Aufenthalt bei Boete in Lovina also bestens empfehlen.
Nous avons été très bien reçu par Boete, la villa correspondait bien à la des cription et nous avons passé 5 jours très agréable dans la villa. Putu et Kadek ont été très serviables et la cuisine de Kadek délicieuse.
