Lilin Hotel

Lilin Hotel

Fresh and fun

More on Lovina

A semicircle of cute individually styled bungalows each with their own plunge pool grace the beachfront at Lilin Hotel. The glass-fronted air-con rooms are individually styled using cool refreshing sea tones with bamboo, recycled wood and rustic elements. The look is fresh and fun with a bit more thought than the average bland bungalow.

Travelfish says:

Rooms are smallish, but light and bright, perhaps too bright in the mornings as curtains seemed a tad thin. Beds are bouncy with clean white linens, and amenities include a small fridge and water dispenser — great to see hotels cutting down on plastic bottles. Simple and clean ensuite bathrooms are semi-outdoor style with hot-water showers.

Step off your small terrace directly into the turquoise plunge pool or just sway on the swinging “love-seat” day lounge — the perfect spot for catching the sea breeze.

A sweet two-bedroom villa, set slightly away from the other bungalows with a pretty collection of white lacy kabayas as wall decoration and a larger outdoor living area than the other rooms offers a little more solitude. Although we love the style and ambience of Lilin Hotel, we feel they oversell themselves a little as “private villas with private swimming pools” with prices to match — there’s not a lot of privacy, and you’re not going to be doing laps of the pool.

Changing daily breakfast and WiFi are included. A small restaurant sits beachside, however Lilin Hotel doesn’t have a full kitchen, so meals are ordered from nearby restaurants. Massages and treatments are offered in your bungalow.

Staff are as sweet and charming as the rooms. Rates vary according to the size, position and season. If you don’t mind a bit of a steep price for a charming beach bungalow, go for it, just don’t expect a resort.
