Very friendly laid back pace
A very long drive from the airport
A great base for seeing the north coast
LOVINA The mornings and evenings are such a great time to enjoy the ambience of the beaches here.Known for its great sunsets Lovina is a lovely quiet destination after the mayhem of the southern parts of Bali. When I took my morning walks along the beaches I always took along my camera as well, the activities of the fishermen and their lovely...more
A stunning sunset seems to be perpetually glowing here, The sand along the beach is grayish black in colour because of the lack of waves and temperate water. With secluded coastlines, beaches and mountain ranges, the northern part of Bali is speckled with retreats and a collection of highlights such as mountain trails, marine parks, forest...more

One of the best ways to end the day in Lovina is at the Happy Hour at the Tropis Club Restaurant. The drinks are nice and cold and while you try to decide what yummy delight you will have for dinner you can watch the sun set. Also one night we watched 2 teams of locals play a game of volley ball on the courts over the road.Do be warned though that...more
This restaurant was right across the road from our hotel Rambutan Cottages so it was easy for us to visit more than once. We liked the fact that they give you complimentary glass of water on arrival and a plate of prawn crackers. The staff were very friendly and their menu suggestions were good too. At the end we were given fresh fruit on the house...more

All of the hotels know of someone that has a car or taxi that will take you where ever you want to go.
A car with driver is the best way to go in Bali.
They know the best routes and there are few road signs.
Our driver from the hotel back to the airport, stopped to show us a new temple under construction.
At the bottom of our stairs leading up to the porch of our suite, there were stone carvings.
No doubt these were to scare away the evil spirts so they would not enter.
Like anywhere in South East Asia carry and use a strong mosquito repellant here. Due to the oppressive summer heat and tropical conditions it pays to constantly use a mosquito repellant daily. Many different conditions can eventuate from mosquito bites so is best to be safe..In the evening when mosquitos are at there most active make sure that you are wearing a long sleeved shirt and trousers.Also make sure that all exposed skin is covered with a good repellant. Dont worry about the smell of the repellant as others will be wearing it also if they are smart..
Luggage and bags:
Bring empty suitcases as you'll be able to grab loads of shopping in Bali
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring a good pair of walking shoes or sandals. You may have trouble finding large sized ladies shoes. Also it's hard to find larger sized ladies bras or swimwear so bring them from home.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Elastic type bandages are expensive as are specialised first aid dressings, but all other bandaids , insect repellant, hot rubs etc are cheaper than OZ
Photo Equipment: I always bring 2 sets of re-chargeable batteries , charger and power point adapter to recharge my digital camera batteries
Miscellaneous: Bring along any unused clothing, books & toys from home as there are many charities in Bali who will take these items and distribute them to needy villages in the mountains. We met some of these hard workers on our last trip.
While sitting on the porch of our suite we watched the birds.There was a white headed Munia that was going over to a thatched roof above the entranceway and pulling out pieces to take to the tree where he was building a nest.This went on all day for several days.Sometimes he would make it to the nest with them and sometimes he would drop them...more
