“Excellent friendly service in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 31 March 2010

Myself and a friend spent 3 really enjoyable nights at Rumah Cantik. The owners,Yeta and Matah were fantastic hosts they gave helpful suggestions of activities to suit and then arranged transport. I was happy to relax by the pool and catch up on some reading.

I especially enjoyed a 4hour body spa at Agungs Beauty Spa which included a scalp massage, facial, body scrub and 1.5hour body massage costing just under AUD60. Yeta also organised for me to have a massage on the outside balinese pavilion at Rumah Cantik which cost AUD9.

The staff were so friendly and helpful. You must have the nasi goreng which I enjoyed for both breakfast and lunch and wake up to a mixed fruit shake.

Rumah Cantik is an ideal place to sit back and relax, with only four villas it was very private we enjoyed the pool, had a drink (or two) on the balcony overlooking the rice paddies and walked to the beach for sunset dinner.
Other places worth checking out was Jasmine's Kitchen - a beautiful Thai restaurant in town, and Spice Dive Bar on the beach.
Yeta arranged a private car to transport us from our hotel in Seminyak (South Bali) to Lovina (North Bali) which took 3hours but had spectacular views.
I thoroughly recommend a stay at Rumah Cantik and hope you enjoy the experience as much as we did.

We have visited Rumah Cantik in Lovina several times and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else in Lovina. The place just feels like home. There are only 4 rooms, so the feeling of privacy, the total attention from the staff and the garden and pool almost to yourself, just gives the impression that this is YOUR private paradise. Rooms are big and beautifully decorated. The pool is just fantastic. Breakfast is brilliant and the garden is gorgeous. Some days we dont even leave the hotel, as the staff will make you a beautiful balinese dinner on request. Or even arrange take-away food from the restaurants in Lovina. You can book a massage to your room or in the beautiful pavillion in the garden. Just about all you can dream of. Really exceptional service!

We stayed here for 4 days in early December and extended for an extra day- it was hard to leave. The staff and owner are fantastic. The breakfast is the best ever. This hotel is 10 minutes walk to the beach and another ten minutes along the beach to the main shops and restaurants. Surrounded by neighbours with pigs, dogs and cockrels it is not totally peaceful but the charm and lovely ambaince make up for that. Lovina is quiet with lts of hotels closing down but it is worth the visit - especially if you stay here. forget the Dolphins - its a battle and I felt sorry for them - so many boats so few fish! snorkling was good but lots of little stinging jelly fish put us off a seconsd trip. We hired abike and toured the area - it is an unspoilt part of Bali. good restaurants - Jasmine Thai and Barcelona. Butif you stay here ask then to prepare their home cooked Bali meal - it ws wonderful.

Three days in this wonderful place. Very quiet and yet a few tens of meters away from the bustle of Lovina.
The home is custom, the staff is charming and considerate.
Breakfast is a delight.
The pool is very nice as the rooms and halls-of-bath shingle.
If you go by Lovina is the place where lovers sleep.

We were in July in Lovina and stayed 5 days in Rumah Cantik, a small hotel, with 4 large rooms - it felt like home. The hotel is owned by a Baline-Danish couple, combining the European order and hygiene with the Balines hospitality. The rooms are located in two small villas with a lovely bed, nice balcony or terrace, and AC. Breakfast is served on your balcony/terrace or even lunch or diner. The personnal is very friendly and the service is great.
The beach is about 400 m and there is a nice dive centre and restaurant called Spice Dive. The beach is quiet, black sand, but very clean. You can dive or snorkle or just swim. It's too hot for a sunbath. Earlu in the morning you can make the dolphin tour,

Take a peaceful garden with flowers and trees, birds and bees. Add two villas with 4 rooms and a pool. Top up with kind, considerate personel. Then You have Rumah Cantic.
Close to the beach, but just away from the main road.
