This is the second time I have stayed at the Hotel Vila Lumbung and I have never been disappointed. The staff are really lovely and always have a smile and say "hello" whether it's reception desk, the bartender, the restaurant manager, housekeeping or the pool attendant. Immediately, you are made to feel at home. The atmosphere is so relaxed. Other members of my family have stayed here also and they loved it here too. After enquiring at the tour desk in reception, we didn't have any problem with hiring a private driver for day trips to where ever we wanted to go. (Good idea to do Google research on "What to do in Bali" before you leave home). We booked a day at the Elephant Camp which included pick up and return to Hotel but the driver never showed, our private driver "Gede" (pronounced G'Day) offered to take us, it was quite a long way and the Manager at the Elephant Camp paid our driver. The staff cannot do enough for you. If I go back to Bali again, I will definitely be staying at Vila Lumbung (Paradise in Seminyak).
The villa was exquisite. We were welcomed with a drink the moment we entered as we were checking in. Hotel staff was super friendly and helpful with any questions we had. Loved the fact that breakfast was served every morning. Would definitely recommend mayaloka to couples or friends!
I recently stayed in a garden villa, room 26 and was impressed by the size of the room the whole outdoor shower/bath area ou the back and a lovely little garden area out the front. The staff were friendly and courteous and the food was well priced and really good. Ask for Tony if you need a private driver for the day. He was friendly and knowledgeable about many things.

We had some dubious feelings upon arrival ( Location and entrance appeared stark and Gothic looking). Then we were wonderfully surprised upon entering the lobby. Fantastic facilities, clean, and no hint of vermin for our entire stay.
Dining incorporated a direct view of ocean and white water breakers on the beach which was only 30 metres from the hotel gardens and offered easy access.
Rooms were clean and spacious - Bathrooms were modern, and featured a bath and a large separate shower which was extremely spacious with volumes of hot hot water. Sliding door to balcony offered panoramic views of the ocean and a day bed, completed the scene.
Our very first holiday to Bali and we selected a fantastic place to stay. The breakfast was great and so were the other meals that we also enjoyed there as well. They had live entertainment several nights during our stay which was very good and everyone seemed to enjoy it. I booked in several massages at this villa and was well and truly looked after top to toe. This is a good all round hotel with friendly staff, close to shopping, Blue Bird Taxi's at our doorstep, teller machine was walking distance. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return again in the near future. Would recommend to everyone who wants a real Bali Feel. Will definitely stay again in the Low Season as it is not rushed and everything is accessible without waiting.
For the price that we paid the hotel was excellent! All the staff were very helpful and our room was simple but comfortable! The beds were very comfy and the room was clean, you even had a balcony with a big lounger! The pool is great and there is space to sit in sun or shade. We had some snacks one afternoon and they were nice but preferred to go out for breakfast. We walked to seminyak square and eat street from hotel and it was about 20 to 30 mins or you can catch a taxi for 30,000rupiah each way. Would highly recommended this hotel for families, friends or groups!
This was my second stay at Mutiara over a 4 month period and every bit as good as the first time. People working at Mutiara make the difference between OK and very, very good. Nothing (within reason) is to much trouble for this group of staff. My group consisted of 3 adults and each of us were impressed with the service quality.
