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.

... spot. I had an hour and a half of really good snorkelling seeing the biggest fish I'd ever seen and loads of colourful ones although I couldn't name any. My mask fit perfectly and the flippers meant I could travel quite far around all different parts of the coral. On returning we bargained with a taxi driver to take us to the famous Gitgit waterfalls, the twin lakes and spice plantations in Munduk. The waterfall was great, we walked half a km to ...
... and he submitted and agreed that our donation was enough. Even though we were made aware that they charge tourists outrageous amounts of money here, we still did not expect this level of aggressiveness. This left a sour taste in our mouths and were left shaking for several hrs after this had happened. From this point on, I knew what kind of **** we would potentially have to deal with again. But yes, the temple was quite remarkable and the tour guide attempted to explain and ...
... are. Dinner was fantastic fresh fish right on the sandy beach. With the crazy sunset it was almost too romantic for the two of us dudes. After dinner, what better way to end the night than another great, cheap massage. Johannes arranged for a rental car for us the next morning so we could do a bit more exploring of the countryside. The driving was active and fun and crazy, with mopeds everywhere and honking the norm. Street lights and signs are simply ...
... sky fill with stars. We meet a solo traveller Simona from Uttrecht, Netherlands who eats dinner with us. To the shock of the staff and dismay of Sandra I request only fried potato and a coffee. The latter is terrible. Feeling rough and burping, crampy I take my leave early at 8.30pm. Quick wash, teeth and changed I hit the sack. I hear Sandra come in only to wake again at 3am to get the toilet! I'm feeling a little more like ...
... unceremoniously upturn the bag, scatter your smalls and stains (it's chocolate! I swear!) on the floor for all to see, and one by one make an inventory and individually price each item. The per kilo model simply gets weighed in the bag and off you go. You choose, but I know which way I prefer it!
I nip into Hardy's for nappies and snacks for the boys, and head back to the room to get ready for Ririn's arrival. I have absolutely no idea what to expect, so I ...
