Charming wooden houses

More on Lovina

Comfortable, well-appointed Balinese-style wooden houses of varying sizes pepper a lush tropical garden at Rumah Kita.

Travelfish says:

Ideal for a longer stay, the houses provide a fully equipped kitchen and wonderful open living spaces.

Rumah Kita means “our house” in Indonesian, and you’ll feel right at home in this charming small hotel. Each house is different, but the general layout has the bedrooms upstairs and everything else below. Wood, bamboo and natural materials with tiled lower floors provide rustic charm. It’s bestowed with all you would expect in a house, like comfortable day beds, dining table and chairs and a library full of books in several languages. Light filters through the jungle-like foliage surrounding the open living area — it’s secluded and very private, but it is open and it’s the tropics so expect critters. The upstairs airy, fan-cooled bedrooms offer comfortable mosquito-netted beds with ikat covers and open onto a small furnished balcony overlooking the garden. A very steep stairway leads directly to the bathroom below, which also can be accessed directly from the living area. Simple and spacious open-style bathrooms are a little stained, but clean. Showers are hot, and an abundance of shelving provides storage.

The houses were mostly built in the early 1990s (with a later exception in early 2000s), but are all well maintained. They can sleep two to four, so are great for families, although possibly hazardous for younger kids. Hidden at the back of the hotel (we almost missed it), a medium sized swimming pool with a corner kids’ section is shaded by trees. A couple of sun loungers are provided for the lazy and a badminton court for more energetic guests. Breakfast and WiFi are included. The family who run the place are very friendly and speak excellent English.

Sally spent twelve years leading tourists around Indonesia and Malaysia where she collected a lot of stuff. She once carried a 40kg rug overland across Java. Her house has been described as a cross between a museum and a library. Fuelled by coffee, she can often be found riding her bike or petting stray cats. Sally believes travel is the key to world peace.
