The Lotus Lumbung is a cute little place to stay & the room is very well sealed, so we had no trouble with bugs & didn't need a mosquito net. A/C works really well, staff is very nice and helpful.
What's not fully clear is the pool isn't private to your unit, but rather to the sanctuary, but we found almost no one used it anyway, so it was fairly private.
We extended our stay to another bungalow since we liked the sanctuary so much - my only "complaints" would be that 1) it's not as private in the others because it's the first unit in the front [there are shades you can pull closed, though] and there are a LOT of big ants in the bathroom at night [not really something that can be helped, but a small nuisance]
Would stay again without hesitation :)
This was the perfect little landing pad for me arriving on my own for the first time in Bali, the place is lovely with great rooms.
But to be honest what makes this place amazing are the beautiful Balinese staff. They are like family and on day 2 I fell and badly injured my foot and leg and couldn't walk, and was really shaken up, they did everything they could to help me, moved my things to another room without stairs, took me to hospital for X-rays, stayed with me, drove me around. They really took care of me and I can't thank them all enough.
I would highly recommend this place to stay for anyone wanting to visit Ubud. xx
What a creative and beautiful place. Staff were so friendly and helpful and we felt very relaxed staying at Lotus Lumbung. We will definitely be staying here again for sure.
The description and pictures were satisfyingly accurate! Though some travellers may not be aware that the Lotus Lumbung is actually a stand-alone villa in a cluster of 4 villas. But not to worry! There's plenty of room and privacy for each individual villa. The pool is also a great place to spend some time with your friends or better half - if you have some spare time in your itinerary! Do take a look at the other villas they have available as well, they all look pretty darn awesome!
The service was amazing too! I apologise as I have since forgotten the names of the staff who served us, but they definitely did so with wide smiles! We arrived a tad early and they allowed my girlfriend and I to make use of the lower floor of another villa to unwind from our flight and travel into Ubud. We were greeted by freshly made fruit smoothies upon our arrival, as well as during breakfasts for each morning we were there! There are two options, but just opt for the crepes!
The staff can also arrange for scooter rentals - which I recommend - as despite the fact that it's pretty near central Ubud (where Monkey Forest, etc is located), having a motorbike is much, much more convenient!
I guess if I go on about my stay there it'll just be going on in loops, so just know that it's an amazingly value-for-money accommodation if you're looking to spend some time in culturally-rich Ubud!
Thanks again for the great service, and if I'm ever back in Ubud, I'll be sure to stay at The Sanctuary again (: Bless you lovely folks!
I had a wonderful stay at Lotus Lumbung. I had some work to do so it was very convenient having the little space under the room to sit and work. The pool was lovely and the wi-fi good. The bed was very comfortable, especially the pillows. It is quite far from town, which was the best thing for me because I found Central Ubud was really busy and noisy with all the traffic and constant beeping. I loved going back to my little haven and I usually picked up food to take home.
Lovely place. Nice house and clean skimming pool. Difficult to walk to the center because it is a busy road. But they have a nice driver and it is easy to catch a taxi back to the villa. The staff is very nice and also the garden is nice. For almost nothing you can do a massage at your little villa. The AC is working perfect. The only thing it is nog very clear in the text on airbnb that it is a shared pool. But anyway we had a great time.

About the Host, David And Brenda
David, my husband was a set designer and furniture designer for the movie industry in Los Angeles for thirty years and worked with the tops in the industry....Steven Spielberg, Jodie Foster, Robert Redford, Bruce Springsteen and many more. His built the Captains Chair for Star Trek Insurrection and had the most "ordered" bed in TV history from the TV hit, "Mad about You".
He designed furniture for many top Restaurants in Los Angeles from the Saddle Peak Lodge in Malibu to Malibu Adobe with Ali McGraw. His resume is extensive and his client list is long....Billy Crystal, David Hasselhof, Arnold Schwarzanegger to Keenan Wayans.
He has translated that skill into building ten amazingly different houses since he's come to Bali. Our house is amazing and you will see why he is so in demand!
I have a variety of interests that keep me busy. I have spent years doing spiritual growth work and now work with others with addiction and codependency issues. I love this work and the chance to give back what I was taught. I've been an artist my whole life so our home is filled with original art ( mine and others) and I have an awesome studio..Anyone that loves to paint will fall in love here. My latest passion is teaching Zumba, What a blast!
As you can see, we are both loving our life and filling the hours manifesting our dreams. We both are creative artists and love to explore the world and the people in it.
Since we've been in Bali we've been taking in South East Asia. We love Vietnam, and Thailand for their amazing cuisine.
We are frequently traveling, so we are sorry that we don't get to meet all our guests, but we leave you in the hands of an amazing staff and manager, Eko and Sakming, who will be your contact people.
