Suma Hotel Lovina Beach
Travel Blogs from Kalibukbuk
The journey from Ubud north to Lovina took about three hours, plus a half hour at our only stop, the Pura Bratan temple to Shiva on Lake Bratan. This large complex was packed with devotees. Lake Bratan is a good size and at 1200 m. above sea level, feeds much of central Bali with fresh water. Driving over the mountains involved a lot of slow, …
... a few on until I found the most flattering style and not being able to choose, Hubby said to buy 4.
These were 395 000 each (about $39) but you would pay $100 at home. Stretch lace, crease free and very feminine. She would not give discount but kindly threw in a few wash bags come shoe bags come lingerie bags.

... of herons that come every evening to nest when Brock’s bike pedal broke, so we had to turn around. Fortunately, the way home was all downhill. We showered and then went to dinner. The Indonesian food is so delicious and very healthy too, and quite inexpensive.
The next morning we had a leisure morning and then took a bus/boat to a tiny island called Gili Trawangan. There are three tiny islands, the Gilis, off the coast of one of the main ...
... second dive was around cave point, down another reef cliff and down to the same 18 metres. The visibility was the same, we were swimming through a soup of the same particles as before, fairly convinced now that we wouldn't be seeing sharks (even if they were there, which was a little nerve wracking, have to say!) The fish were incredible on this dive too though and the coral just as impressive. Huge swathes of coral, swaying in the current ... and the currents were huge, just staying ...
... had a village feel and was bursting green. If you go, we suggest that you take the walk to the highest point on the ridge, get a drink at one of the fancy or not-so-fancy warungs, then retrace your path back – it would be much more scenic than the way we looped around the noisy and dangerous highway back to central Ubud.
As it happened, we have come to Ubud during a very special time; the festival of the New Year - Nyepi. As of today, ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsSuma Hotel Lovina Beach Kalibukbuk
When we bought a bus ticket from Ubud to Lovina we had several hotels written down and were just going to cruise around and try to find the best deal. Suma was on our list and it so happened that they dropped us off there.
The reception guy started taking us to a room and we quickly let him know we were nearing the end of our trip and very low on money, we wanted to know how much the cheapest room they had was. He replied 150,000ird and we went to leave, he lowered it to 100,000 so we agreed to check out the room. It was fine, mosquito net, double bed, private bath- although we had drainage issues to our bathroom was a puddle most of the time, though the toilet is on a raised platform so we didn't care, cold water, and breakfast included. They also had a huge nice pool and wifi, although the wifi was pretty shitty. Breakfast though, that was great. Several choices of eggs, omlette with ham and onions, or nasi goreng, choice of coffee or tea, comes with 2 pieces of toast, butter and jam as well as juice and fruit. After paying 100,000 in Kuta and getting worse internet and just 2 pieces of toast, gross jam and lard for breakfast, this was quite the step up.
It's right on the beach, although the beach in that area is pretty trashy and has a lot of hawkers on it. Very pushy.. This place was great for the price we payed but I wouldn't want to pay much more. The staff is nice but pretty pushy about booking trips through them. Which by the way, do not do, it's much cheaper other places, just walk around and ask.
