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.

... I am moving on. Tonight this year ends, the weardest year of my life. Tomorrow the year of the big trip will begin. The firecrackers are now on sale on the streets. I take several walks a day. Don't want to hire a motorbike or taxi. But that means I have to return to my hotel every now and then to take a shower and put on clean clothes as relative humidity is about 100%. Today my walk takes me further from the hotel into an area where they sell a lot of furniture, glassworks ...
... will go down in history as one of my favourite days ever! Charlie and I went on an adventure to some waterfalls. We were told by our hotel to do the Sekumpul falls, we took a risk and went against the guidebook! The first hurdle was a regular tourist scam. At loads of places you are told you cannot go without a guide, you are then told a ridiculous price for a guide. Charlie and I class ourselves as well seasoned travelers and were able to hold our ground. I think the ...
... much we saw it was fantastic! We basically saw all of the characters from Finding Nemo and I enjoyed it a lot especially when I worked out how to stop floating up to the surface all the time. No LOLs underwater especially when we saw a Jellyfish. Gilbert was not happy! But it was a great sight. We got some good use of the GoPro and took about 900 photos, many of which were of not a lot! We were shattered after our two dives and desperately needed a shower after swimming through ...
... other way to Kuta square and art markets etc with massage in between both :)
Well we didn't walk back, we swam.....kidding.. but almost. I was drenched and our umbrellas did nothing. It was so wet that the massage near our hotel had closed (4pm) instead of 7pm.
We get changed after drying off and decide to walk around into Singosari st to find my friend Dayu who has a salon. She is delighted to see us and we discover she has had another ...
... for her - every family must want a different level of 'control' or visibility, but I was more than happy to let her do her thing - I figure she's been doing this for a long time now, and she doesn't need me watching over her shoulder every five seconds, besides, Mookie can sense evil and will scream like a child possessed if he's even slightly suspicious of someone. This includes Santa Claus, our local Maternal Child Health Nurse and my mother in law.
