In a prime position, right on the beach and only a five-minute walk from central Lovina, Jhon House is a relative bargain.

Photo of Jhon House
In a double-storey brick block with two rooms up, and two down, all have unobstructed sea views.

Set up more like an apartment than a hotel room, each has a fully equipped kitchen, a spacious living / dining room, with separate small bedroom and bathroom behind — no sea views from the bed. Bedrooms are air-con and living areas are cooled with ceiling fans. The living space in the downstairs rooms is slightly larger, but upstairs rooms have better views and add a balcony with a daybed and table for some outdoor living. Tiled interiors are bright and clean if a tad tired and worn, glass-fronted for maximum sea view. The bedroom at the back is a little darker, and needs a light in the daytime, but fine for a good night’s sleep. Minimally furnished, the bedrooms provide a mosquito-netted, four-poster bed, and that’s it. Living spaces offer a dining table and chairs, and lounge seating plus a small flatscreen TV and DVD player. Hot-water bathrooms are clean with adequate hanging and surface space.

Outside, a low fence and shady tiled bale separate the small paved courtyard from the beach. Jhon House isn’t going to win any design awards, but it’s comfortable and functional, an excellent value option, particularly if you plan a longer stay. We like the relaxing “holiday house” atmosphere in this local style choice. Breakfast is not included, but can be added for an extra 50,000 rupiah per room. Jhon House is not obvious from the road — access is via Puri Manggala Beach Hotel, or from the beach near Lovina Beach Hotel.
