Overview

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday villa in Lovina - The Villa Lovina

6 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Enormous Living And 2 Relaxing Gazebos

This was our own luxury home when we lived in Bali with quality fitting. It is not just a holiday home. It is situated abutting, across the river, the famous Damai Hotel which is rated as one of the best 5 star hotels in Bali is without doubt one of the most beautiful villas in Lovina.

"THE VILLA LOVINA" looks over the infinity pool, down the rainforest valley to the township of Lovina and the Java sea (on a clear day you can see Java).

The villa comprises 6 bedroom with sleeping for 12 and 4 internal bathrooms and 2 with adjoining external private shower area. One of the bedrooms, if not needed, can become the spa room as a full time masseuse comes with the property It is situated on 2700 sq meters of land with manicured gardens and vegetable patch.

The villa is fully air-conditioned and there are 8 ceiling fans on the upper level, these combined with the natural gentle breeze make for a pleasant holiday.

There is also a relaxing gazebo surrounded by a superb fish and lily pond, a great place to relax reading a book or sipping a refreshing drink. There is also another gazebo at the other end of the property set up as a private spa for massages , beside is a natural outdoor fire area, great for ambience.

About Graham

We are a retired couple who lived in Lovina for 5 years whilst we built many villas as well as The Lovina Resort. Before we returned to Australia we adopted a Javanese baby who was 9 months old at the time and left on our doorstep. The three of us , like you , enjoy traveling the world.

Why Graham chose Bali

The villa was designed and built to my specifications which is the highest standard. The view is one of the best in Lovina and can never be built out as I own the land going down the hill. We offer a cook and our own in villa masseuse , both of whom have worked for us for the last 5 years. The area, Kayuputih , where the villa is built is definitely the TRUE Bali not the fake tourist one. We can even organise for you to go to the local primary school 200 meters up the road.

It is a villa for total relaxation and yet it is only 2.3 kilometres from the heart of Lovina where there are plenty of bars and restaurants.

Stunning location, a real taste of Bali

  • 4 of 5

We were very sorry to have only had a quick stay at Villa Lovina. The location and villa itself are stunning. The pool and outdoor showers were a big hit with the kids and we simply fell in love with the master bedroom. The villa staff were great, went above and beyond to make us feel welcome - a real team who clearly know how to look after a family, yet were respectful of our privacy & yet managed to make us feel special and spoilt. We were served fresh & delicious breakfasts by Ketut, a kind and gentle woman. The cleaners tackled our rather large pile of laundry as well as cleaning the house completely every morning. We were woken early every morning by the village cockerel or two, for us this only added to the feeling of really experiencing life in Bali. This is not the quiet serene morning some wish! The house has a lived in feel, which made us feel very much at home, versus the buy to rent more clinical & business like villas. It is a short drive to various tourist sites and the deli Babu's, a European type bakery doing great take aways for our picnics (they declare for those with allergies!). We simply used our quick stay to enjoy the villa, the views and the delicious food to recharge.

Great location, views, house and staff...perfect!

  • 4 of 5

The Villa at Lovina was perfect for our family 'group', it all went exceptionally well from the minute we arrived to our departure. We were 6-8 persons and stayed eight nights, it was a great place for family members to meet up from Australia, UK and Europe....we were there to celebrate our wedding (second), so wished to keep it low profile - we had the ceremony at the Damai (great choice) perfect for small 'elopement' type celebration and just a short distance away - basically on neighbouring land. Views out to sea fabulous, all very relaxing (certainly not 'party' town - but we had our own party) and peaceful! The staff were charming and could not have been more helpful - what a treat to have Ketut cooking for us!! Also, everyone enjoyed the opportunity to have an 'in house' massage or two - by all accounts it met our brief perfectly and more....wonderful, thank you!

Beautifully serene

  • 5 of 5

This is a very special grand Villa well away from the hustle & bustle of the urban areas, and altho 2 km inland from Lovina (volcanic) beach, it is reminiscent of the older Bali, in private, comfortable, clean & natural surroundings with dedicated staff including cooks Ketut and Putu & masseuse Negah. We spent 8 beautiful days here enjoying the very serene & calming views across the fabulous infinity pool over the forest and through to the Java sea. The photos like a previous reviewer mentioned do not do the Villa justice. It is far more beautiful and the overwhelming sense you get when you step into the house was that this space is immensely loved loved loved. So immediately it feels like your own away from home space. Truly lovely.

The Villa is surrounded by natural tropical plantings like ginger , frangipani, bougainvillea, tree ferns & features a beautiful gazebo which in turn is surrounded by a beautiful lily pond. The natural wildlife is plentiful & from the coolness of the pool and / or the loungers we spent many an hour watching the beautiful butterflies , dragonflies, jungle roosters & birds flitting from place to place many times crisscrossing where we were in repose. This is a perfect place to just chill & enjoy with loved ones that wish to experience the natural Bali .

We particularly enjoyed the local foods & fruits & lovely to have staff show us how to cook the Balinese way at our leisure. The house has a huge collection of books and DVD's & a necessary (for us) coffee machine (order yr own beans at the fabulous Buda Bakery nearby and eat everything they bake - very yummy), so we welcomed the spaces the Villa offered to relax, swim and do nothing much else.

We particularly loved the HUGE beds & large open outside showers. Evi the local manageress is a real gem & was very helpful. Recommend highly for the local experience & if you want to do things in town, it was only a taxi ride away. Evi or Ketut organises this for you. We don't recommend walking to town only because the roads are so narrow (think jungle track).We also recommend being picked up by the Villa Driver at the Denpasar Airport but allow at least 3 daylight hrs to get the Villa from the airport.

Thanks to the owners for providing such a different option for weary souls. Much appreciated & very highly recommended.

Amazing property with the feel of home

  • 4 of 5

Great location in the hills above Lovina. The staff and in particular Ketut (Cook) was ever obliging and responsive to our needs. The villa itself was well appointed with luxurious furniture, fittings etc. Would definitely recommend for anyone travelling to Bali/Lovina.

Guests need to keep in mind that transport will be needed to travel to the town and beach area as well as the surrounding rural area.

Absolutely magical!

  • 5 of 5

We spend 2 weeks in this beautiful villa with another family - 10 people all up so perfect for a large group . The villa did not disappoint at all and the pool a big hit!! the pool actually was bigger / deeper than we expected! The staff were incredibly helpful and went out their way to make our stay enjoyable. The cook cooked the most delicious Balinese food for us , which meant we tended to eat at home for dinner as it was so delicious - so only went out for dinner a couple of times during our stay in Lovina. We absolute loved this part of Bali, away from the crowds. Also highly recommend the inhouse massages - so relaxing ! My only other recommendation for future guests would be to consider renting a scooter (international driving license required) for the duration of the stay which Graham can arrange (very affordable by the way!) if not renting a car as the villa is about 3 kilometres from Lovina so perfect for nipping into town for groceries etc as it was too far too walk. I loved it and you get a great sense of village life that way. Thanks again Graham and your wonderful staff to make our stay so enjoyable. Would recommend your villa for any large group as it was the perfect stay and beats staying in a resort!! PS fresh bread can be delivered in the morning by the Buddha bakery - highly recommend !!

Owner's Response: Thanks Nikki for your kind words, Rhonda and I are so glad that you and all your family had a wonderful holiday. As you said Bali is a great central place for two families to meet up when coming from both sides of the world. If you want a totally relaxing holiday then Lovina is the place to be.

gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place to stay. Because we have limited language skills, we found Noki especially helpful. She greeted us warmly, understands and speaks English quite well, answered all of our questions, returned several times a day to assist us with various things such as arranging meals and transport. We took advantage of having cooks in the villa for two out of three dinners, and loved the Indonesian food that they prepared, recipes that we chose and they prepared. We enjoyed on sight massages, the pool, watched a couple movies, and felt like we were in paradise every time we looked out. The outdoor bathroom off the main bedroom is beautiful! The staff was kind, the property clean and well maintained. Town is just a 10 minute drive down the hill.

Car: necessary

Situated in the hills above Lovina is this magnificent 6 bedroom villa which boasts stunning views of the Java sea overlooking a specular infinity swimming pool.

The Villa ( which is fully air conditioned) is only 2.5 kilometres away from the centre of Lovina where there are many, many restaurants (not miles away) and it abuts the famous DAMAI HOTEL, KAYU PUTIH where prices for the same accommodation are 4 to 5 times more ...check it out on the internet)

It is set on 2700 sq meters (more than half an acre) of manicured tropical gardens with two gazebos, one for relaxing with a good book or an afternoon snooze, the other for outside dining with a stunning outlook.

The villa is serviced by our competent staff who clean it everyday. We also have our own COOK that is INCLUDED IN THE PRICE for 2 meals a day and our own PRIVATE MASSEUSE that has been with us for 5 years and is available for a small fee (80,000 rupiah or less than US$7)

The area is completely safe, we have full security and it is great for walking or hiking as the surroundings are like a tropical rain forest.
