From the moment we arrived it was wonderful. Straight into relaxation mode. We had to wait for our room which was great because we got to experience the days beds over looking the ocean while we sipped on refreshing beverages made by the staff. Then ,when we did get escorted to our villa,it was so much better than expected. The pictures on the web site do the resort no justice. It was beautiful. The food was amazing. I could go on and on, but I would like to thank Ricki and his staff for doing such a amazing job. We would especially like to thank Rudi who was superb and really made your feel welcome.I would not hesitate to recommend "The Royal Santrian".Truly wonderful!!

I decided to split my 10 day holiday in Bali between 5 days in Seminyak and 5 days in Jimbaran. Lumbini Villas is a great choice if you're after somewhere modern, clean and away from the centre of it all, but close enough to walk to local restaurants and to use the beaches in the local resorts (e.g Intercontinental hotel just 500m away). If you want to be in the middle of tourist town, then stay in Seminyak, whereas the villa is located amongst local shops and stores. The room service menu is well priced and a reasonable selection, but I decided to eat out a few nights at the local seafood restaurants on the beachfront (about 20 min walk) as well as at Balique (about 300m south down the road). The rooms are exactly as the photos on the website and the mosquito netted bed along with electric mosquito repellent and closed bedrooms were great, no problems at all with mosquitoes. That said, you;ll need repellant and coils for the outdoor living area, but the villa provides that and its par for the course in Bali. TV and DVD were great. Kitchen has the minimum utensils - good for room service or home delivery but not if you want to cook for yourself.
When we booked this hotel, we just trusted past reviews of this hotel. Did not know what to expect but it was truly amazing. Villa was quiet and clean. Staffs were super friendly. They really took care of us good. Because they only have 20 villas, they really deliver personal and superb service. Food was DELICIOUS! Candle light dinner was good. Very romantic. Their everyday breakfast was so good. We really enjoyed their food. I cannot think of one bad thing about this place. From airport pick up to drop off, enjoyed every moments of our stay.
