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).
A friend had recommended the W Hotel to me when I was looking at places to stay in Bali. I would highly recommend this Hotel to everyone. It is absolutely amazing. Hotel staff were fabulous, rooms were amazing, pool areas fantastic - everything about this hotel was faultless.
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!
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.
