Lovina is approximately 90 KM from Denpasar airport in Bali Indonesia.

The old man picked Lovina as the destination for our hotel. The problem in Bali is that the roads are so bad that 90KM travel is hovering around four hours drive, that’s including a stop over for lunch. On the upside there is plenty to see on the way. However its a long drive after a four hour flight from Perth.

So the moral of this story do not let OJ pick a hotel. We only stayed in Lovina for a few days and then headed back to the main tourist areas in Bali. Having said all that it was still a nice place to stay to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily live.

As punishment I made OJ wear funny hippy pants.

The villa we stayed in had its own private pool and we hired a scooter from the hotel to get around the area.

Things to do:

History: Bali is a province of Indonesia and the westernmost of the Lesser Sunda Islands. Located east of Java and west of Lombok, the province includes the island of Bali and a few smaller neighbouring islands, notably Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan. The provincial capital, Denpasar, is the most populous city in the Lesser Sunda Islands and the second largest, after Makassar, in Eastern Indonesia. Bali is the only Hindu-majority province in Indonesia, with 83.5% of the population adhering to Balinese Hinduism.

Bali is Indonesia’s main tourist destination, with a significant rise in tourism since the 1980s. Tourism-related business makes up 80% of its economy. It is renowned for its highly developed arts, including traditional and modern dance, sculpture, painting, leather, metalworking, and music. The Indonesian International Film Festival is held every year in Bali. In March 2017, TripAdvisor named Bali as the world’s top destination in its Traveller’s Choice award
