Lovina Beach Houses

Teak beachfront houses

More on Lovina

For a mid- to top-range chunk of change you could stay in a cookie-cutter resort or at Lovina Beach Houses, a selection of two- and three-bedroom traditional teak houses with private swimming pools, some with direct beach access.

Travelfish says:

For a one-bedroom, they simply close other rooms and offer the whole house at a heavily discounted rate. Located in a small fishing village at the eastern end of Kalibukbuk and crafted from recycled hardwood, two double-storey houses sit beachfront and the others, a two-bedroom joglo and more private three-bedroom houses behind. Of the beachfront houses, only one positions the small swimming pool at front facing the beach, the other offers more privacy at the back of the house. Unfortunately, the beach itself isn’t as clean as it could be.

Layouts vary, but open-style living areas and kitchen are downstairs, with sleeping areas mostly above. Bedrooms provide both air-con and ceiling fans. Furnished with antique wooden furniture including four-poster beds with quality linens and rich traditional textiles, it’s comfortable and relaxing island living. Outdoor-style bathrooms constructed of natural stone are clean and delightfully airy. As this is open-style village living, be prepared for bugs and occasional visits from local wildlife, morning roosters and inquisitive locals peering over the fence. Take time for a chat, one of the joys of staying in a village-like atmosphere is meeting the locals — but if this doesn’t appeal, perhaps choose a more insular resort. Free WiFi is fast and a ’prepare-it-yourself’ breakfast is included or if you prefer, staff can cook meals at your request.

We love the relaxing feel of Lovina Beach Houses — a great choice for families with older kids or a romantic escape. For a less expensive traditional open-style living, try Rumah Kita.

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.
