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.

... aren't seeing too many tourists.
As usual every local person says hello. It is such a peaceful place. We are trying local food. The temperature is cooler than on the coast. The family that owns our guesthouse has 6 dogs (one is 18 years old, blind and almost lost all its teeth). The landowner came here 26 years ago from England and never left. I understand why. ...
... lost real fast! It was also nice to sit in an air conditioned SUV!! The highlight of Ubud was seeing the rice terraces and actually navigating my way through the rice fields despite the fierce heat and humidity. I also went to a coffee plantation where Luwak coffee is made. Luwaks are mongooses that eat only the best coffee berries inside of which is the coffee bean. The Luwaks eat only the berries ...
... it is going to be a bumpy ride! We crawl out of the city and on to even more rough roads, through villages, we are going uphill and then we are on mountain roads........I use the term roads loosely as some parts are so rough he needs the low ratio box to climb up them, all the while us two in the back are tossed around like rag dolls. There are trees around us and a rock face on one side sometimes you can nearly see past them and get the sense it's a bloody long way ...
... recovering at the beach. Today Steve was flying out to Thailand, leaving Mel, Phoebe and I for the rest of Indonesia. Because our hotel finally had warm water, I resolved early in our stay, after much reflection, to shave. I left the moustache however for a while longer - although by the time we left Kuta this too had to go. Shaving a moustache is a precarious issue. Facial hair is the biggest statement of manliness above your waist. And so before shaving, it's important ...
... we left Ubud we picked up a couple of German guys who had also booked onto our tour. We had been hoping for older, more unfit people accompanying us on this trek.
On the way to the Volcano we stopped briefly for some hot drinks and breakfast, in a small tree filled restaurant. Along with an ‘only-just-banana’ pancake (we think one Banana was used to make four pancakes), we were served 5 different hot drinks, ranging from simple Coffee to Ginseng tea. ...
