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).
I'm 60 and travelled alone. This hotel was recommended by a friend who had enjoyed a previous stay. Being alone I was mindful of safety and also didn't want to be staying anywhere that was too noisy, busy or loud. I felt very comfortable staying here and there was a good mix of families, young people and older people travelling on their own.

Grand Avenue was a fantastic find. I spent many hours researching for a one bedroom pool villa where I could relax and be away from the hustle and bustle of Seminyak and Legian. Grand Avenue ticked all the boxes. I had originally booked a room for 3 days and then a villa for 4 days. On arrival I was upgraded to the one bedroom pool villa for the whole of my stay. The staff were friendly and welcoming and always ready to help. The outdoor bathrooms are very spacious and the bedrooms are all air conditioned where you can lock yourselves away.
I checked out most of the villas and they are all great. There is also a pool for use for all the people who just book a room and not a villa. The 2BR villa is very spacious if there a few of you. I will be booking in for next year. I have been to Bali five times and wanted a different location and Grand Avenue is just perfect for a relaxing holiday. I made use of the shuttle everyday to Seminyak and the staff were very accommodating as to where I could be dropped off. To top off my stay I was given a late checkout at no extra charge and was able to relax in my room until 8:30pm before my 11:00pm flight. This kind gesture was a perfect ending to a great holiday. Thank you to all the staff who made my holiday so fantastic. See you next year. Loved the breakfast too. I recommend the nasi goreng and papaya juice.

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.
The villa was exquisite. We were welcomed with a drink the moment we entered as we were checking in. Hotel staff was super friendly and helpful with any questions we had. Loved the fact that breakfast was served every morning. Would definitely recommend mayaloka to couples or friends!
Stayed for 4 nights with hubby and 2 children. Although the check-in was 2pm, our room was available when we arrived at 12:30. The room was clean, modern and big enough for all of us. The included breakfast buffet was superb; lots of varieties to choose from. Shops and massage parlour was a stone's throw away; a good 6 minutes walk to the beach.
