If you don’t mind being a little away from the action, for the best flashpacker value in all of Lovina head straight to Kubu Beach -- in fact, it’s a better deal than some midrange joints. Built in December 2014, it was in immaculate condition when we visited in mid-2016. Twelve rooms sit stacked in a double-storey longhouse block with rice fields on either side absolute beachfront at Kubu Beach, about halfway between Kalibukbuk and Singaraja.

A terrific swimming pool and open-air restaurant front the hotel seaside. Furnished in a smart contemporary style with whitewashed wooden furniture, the spacious modern rooms have gleaming white floor tiles and fresh white walls. Comfortable beds with spring mattress, quality linen and stylish contrasting runners are flanked by practical bedside tables. A built-in desk houses a minibar, flatscreen TV, and electric jug. Reading lamps, switches and plugs are all where you need them.

There’s free WiFi, but it was mentioned it’s better in the common areas than the rooms. Pale stone-clad bathrooms afford glass-screened hot-water rain showers and a round washbasin, with a small space for toiletries. Large windows on the ground floor and windows and glass doors on the upper level let in plenty of natural light. Heavy curtains block the morning sun for late sleepers.

Rooms open onto furnished balconies and verandas, and top floor rooms add an additional balcony at the back for more extensive rice field and coastal views, and allowing a refreshing cross breeze. The top floor rooms are really worth paying the extra 50,000 rupiah for, for as the owner mentioned to us — you get four views for the price of one — garden, rice fields, the sea and the mountains, and those views are indeed rather lovely, particularly at sunset. A manicured lawn with a yet-to-be-established garden edges the path to the restaurant, pool and beach.

The open-air restaurant is styled in the same contemporary manner as the rooms and dishes up Indonesian and Western favourites. The included breakfast is served here, and as they quote in their marketing, “One should not attend even the end of the world without a good breakfast”, so one hopes it’s substantial.

We love the pool — a large azure D-shaped infinity pool with an adjacent round kids pool, both looking out to sea. Sun lounges and colourful bean bags are positioned for prime sun-worshipping. Currently there’s little shade, but once the trees grow that should change. A grassy area in front of the pool gives kids a place to run wild. Unfortunately the beach isn’t much to speak of, but that’s pretty much the rule for nearly all north coast beaches, however it’s cleaner and less populated than in central Lovina.

The owner and staff are very friendly and speak excellent English. They can help arrange transport, motorbike rentals and tours. Kubu Beach is an excellent deal, but if you prefer to be closer to central Lovina, Pondok Wisata Villa Jaya is a good option or if you don’t mind a bit more of a spend, minimal Ju’blu Hotel has a similar style.
