We love Lovina Beach House - Lovina, North Bali, Indonesia

The plunge pool in the garden - very clean and private
We took a ferry from Ketapang, Banyuwangi to Port Gilimanuk in the northern part of Bali. This is our second time in Bali and we booked again with Eddy for a private tour but as usual Eddy always does more than he should. The journey by ferry took about 40 minutes and as soon as we got through the exit gate, the cheerful Eddy has been waiting for us.  We told Eddy we were really hungry and he took us to a restaurant for lunch and after that we were heading to Lovina Beach House.
Very relaxing and the maid came in the morning to serve us fruits
I booked Lovina Beach House through Booking.com about a month ago, after reading positive reviews on the accommodation at TripAdvisor and thanks to the reviewers for giving precise information about this place. Upon arrival, Made was waiting for us and we sorted the payment and he showed us around the house. The house is very spacious, clean and the furnishing gives it the Balinese feel.  Our house has two bedrooms, a huge bedroom with a huge balcony facing the sea upstairs and another bedroom downstairs leading to the pool in the garden.  

All the bedrooms are air-conditioned while the open living room and open kitchen concept give the house a good ventilation and airy. The only disadvantage which was not a problem for us is the location of the house which is about a hundred meter away from the main road. You can hire a motorbike for IDR 50,000 (about USD $5) per day or you can hire a private vehicle with a driver. For us, we asked Eddy to stay with us so that he could drive us to the town and at night when we feel like dining outside.

This place is ideal if you intend to go for the dolphin trip in the early morning. Eddy arranged for the boat to come and pick us at the beach in front of the house.  And I saw some people went snorkeling from the balcony of the house but I never tried so I have no idea of the underwater. But overall, we had the a perfectly relaxing stay after climbing Ijen and Bromo. 

Note:  People have been asking about our contact in Bali. Our agent cum faithful guide in Bali is Eddy Santoso. His number is +6287861274094 and he's also available at Whatsapp.
