I was deighted to hear and see so many birds after weeks in SE Asia where the birds have all but disappeared. I even saw unusual species from the comfort of my room in the Monsoon Lodge. Great birding with a guide, snorkeling to the island, even a free ranging group of macaques. Everything you could want in an ecolodge!
I stayed in a standard room, which for the price was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the setting - looking out over a bay towards Bali Barat National Park - interesting and peaceful. Restaurant is good and prices are reasonable, there is an adequate swimming pool and plenty of space around it for sunbathing and lounging. The last 1.5 km of road to the resort is stony and bumpy (but fine for a nomal car). The bathroom is the open-air variety - this was fine during my stay in the dry season, with very few mosquitoes around, but may not be so much fun in the rainy season (the room does have an excellent mosquito net and a can of spray). Don't believe the travel times quoted - the traffic is generally awful and appalling in Denpasar. Unless you're travelling in the middle of the night, expect a journey of 4 to 5 hours from Denpasar airport.

What an amazing stay we had! My husband and I had our first visit to Bali just recently and didn't know what to expect when we booked at the Taman Sari. The photos were nice online, but it was NOTHING in comparison to the entire atmosphere and beauty this resort really has. The staff was so accommodating and kind, and always helped with every question or request! The diving and snorkeling right outside the resort was some of the best I've seen! I really didn't want to leave this place.
My wife and I have had the chance to travel to many countries. During our stay at
Taman Selini Beach Bungalows we felt we were so close to Nature. There was a
harmony between the sea and the mountains.
Our special thanks to Made, Putu (office management team), Luh (hotel
restaurant) and Jaim -the hotel driver. You have given us a wonderful week at
Taman Selini. A truly unforgettable experience!
We arrived to Pemuteran from Lovina, and booked this hotel as a recomendation. And we were really happy to do it, so we enjoyed t'he room, pool and a couple of balinesse massatge at a very cheap price. Definitively we would recomend this hotel for the people choosing north Bali for a short visit.
The resort is right beside the best shore snorkeling we've seen. Having dinner right beside the shore is very romantic. You see the fisherman coming in with their catch at night, the women and children come to help carry the fish home to distribute amongst their families.
