Located in North Bali, Padmasari Resort Lovina is an enchanting hideaway from the hustle and bustle of the now overcrowded south of Bali. With jungle, rainforests and huge towering mountains to separate you from the south, you could be happily fooled into believing the south does not exist. Padmasari Resort Lovina is a beachfront hotel in Singaraja, Lovina providing spectacular ocean views on a secluded area.
Singaraja Lovina, however, is no wilderness or deserted fishing village, there is now a small tourist scene that although microscopic in comparison with Kuta, offers a little evening life and luxury eating as well as interaction with the more sophisticated traveler. Singaraja Lovina is also famed for its schools of native dolphins that can be viewed every morning during Bali’s magical sunrises.
The room styles are very well designed, there are cottage rooms and villas and all rooms are of a very high quality deeming the Padmasari Lovina arguably one of the best hotels in north Bali. Grand poster beds with flowing mosquito nests decorated with select fabrics and containing all amenities. Furthermore, all rooms are air-conditioned with international phone lines and television, fridges en-suite bathrooms with baths and showers and hot and cool water, a mini bar and a private viewing balcony.
Facilities and services within the Padmasari Resort Lovina are highly extensive and tailored to the requirements of a guest staying within such luxury. These include two restaurants specializing in world foods, local cuisine and BBQ and grilled fresh fish that has become something of a Balinese culinary attraction. A bar for evening wind-downs or afternoon pastime offers cocktails and other beverages and a smaller pool bar allows guests relaxing in and around the grand pool to indulge in a little refreshment without leaving the pool.
As well as a currency converter, a playground for the kids, a luggage-holding facility, laundry, safety deposit, room service, postal service, and extensive parking, Padmasari Resort Lovina has organized services solely for your amusement, interest and indulgent. A whole range of water sports and activities ranging from snorkeling and diving to fishing and sailing, a fitness center and a batik painting and weaving exhibition that if you will excuse the pun, has been woven into the fabric of Balinese and indeed Indonesian Culture for generations.
The immaculately kept gardens and courtyards, not to mention the pool area, the restaurants, and sea views. When all of this is combined with the picturesque beauty of the location the price seems at least half of what you would expect from this level of accommodation. Lovina is definitely a worthwhile visit for those who prefer a little less business and tourism in a holiday and for visiting Singaraja on the north Bali, the Padmasari Resort Lovina should be a real consideration.
