Great little place near the not too busy side of Bali - Sanur. Rooms are a little on the small side but have good comfy bed, air con, ensuite shower and toilet, and almost direct pool access. Breakfast is nice and tasty. Have stayed before and will stay again. Airport pick-up and drop off worked well.
I've traveled the world and stayed at many guest houses and Kembali Lagi is by far one of my favourites. I can't praise Camile and the team enough for making my stay at Kembali Lagi Guest house feel like home. Every morning I was greeted with the biggest smiles. I literally peeped out my door and within a few minutes the friendly staff popped in with a "good morning" and a warm cup of coffee. I had a room with a small private outside area and ate what felt like "breakfast in bed". I was on a business trip and worked late but every night I got back "home" to a clean and tidy room, soft lights on and I could just walk in and get a good night's rest. They arranged a scooter for me to rent for the duration of my stay and when I had to extend my stay but we're unable to stay at their property, they helped me with another scooter rental at the same rate, no questions asked. This is family! The location is perfect! Close enough to where things are happening in town but tucked away in a quiet area that makes you feel like you are in an oasis. The rooms have everything you need. I stayed in a superior room at 1st and later moved to a standard room. Both options were super comfortable. In old Arnie's words, "I'll be back!" Thank you Kembali Lagi for making me feel super comfortable.…
What more can I say about the Kembali Lagi, other than "hidden paradise." When we pulled up, Yudamon (sp, sorry) aka "you da man" greeted us and handled our luggage. In the office, we had our first Bintang and checked in. Please pardon me if I do not get names right, or even at all as I met so many...I need to start writing them down. Our room was very clean and well kept, we had a patio to sit on with a day bed and a table for four next to the pool. They also offer smaller rooms and one big two-level family room. We met "mama cat" right off the bat as she sensed we were cat people and curled up next to me on the bale, she loved coming up every morning to greet us and get her daily scritch on the chin. Each morning, we were served a nice breakfast complete with juices, coffee/tea, eggs our way and toast, what a great start to a day of exploring. The ladies, and Lexi (sorry about our rowdy last night, I blame the Australians:) , were so nice and accommodating, bringing us ice when needed and taking care of any other need we may have had. There is a Kaffir lime tree right outside our door which made the gin and tonics even that much more grand. Rooms have a safe to lock up valuables, shower items provided, AC was incredible, fridge to keep those Bintangs cold, and peace...the best thing of all. The pool is small but most welcome after a day of exploring in the SE Asian heat, and we used it liberally. Rooms cleaned nicely everyday, office called us up drivers if needed, guided us around, taught us more of the language, and its a short walk to everything Sanur. Funnest moment was bringing our friend over who stays in Bali for a rousing game of "Pool Rock Poker", you just had to be there to understand. NOW.... I'd like to address some of the negativity surrounding some of the reviews of this place...... 1. It IS a safe neighborhood. we walked the dark streets of Sanur many, MANY times and never once felt uneasy. It's located on Jalan Kesari which is also known as Villa Row, somewhere anyone would want to live. I hope one day myself to be a neighbor. Take the flashlight they provide in your room. 2. It is a small place, not a huge major hotel brand, which I prefer places like this over the other. Service is more personal, less people and intimate. We met people from all over the world. I love that. 3. Yes, a couple of their rooms are smaller, but really....pay a bit more for the better room. At what, less than $80 American, c'mon. Our room was spacious, quiet and had everything we needed. 4. Yes, we met the owner. While it would have been nice to meet them both, we met John, and he was very welcoming and accommodating telling us that if there was ANYTHING we needed, just ask. He and Camille run a top notch place. SO....Just give it a go, 5 BIG stars, 6 if I could give it. YES, you will have to Jalan Jalan, (walk) to places, but it's not far, it wont harm you. YES, it's kinda dark and weird to first timers, but TRUST ME, you will be OK. And YES, it's small, but that's what makes it so great, it's personal, everyone is smiling, friendly and happy, who wouldn't want that. We will DEFINITELY Kembali Lagi, you can count on that, or, we will soon (hopefully) be neighbors as we love the area and this particular neighborhood that much. Thank you SO MUCH KL from Karen, Kathleen and David, October 18-21, 2022, it was definitely a trip of a lifetime, made better because of you and your loving staff. Sampai Kita Bertemu Lagi (Until we meet again... I hope that's right:)…
From the moment we stepped inside we were astounded by the sheer beauty and warmth of the villa and thought to ourselves that this would be a truly unforgettable experience! The villa has a pool with an outside lounge covered setting surrounded by lush greenery where we enjoyed so many days and evenings. When you step inside there is a fully equipped kitchen, a lovely lounge room with all that you require, including a huge DVD selection and even cable tv. The two bedrooms are large and so architecturally designed with adjoining bathrooms and an additional bathroom. Each morning you are cooked a scrumptious breakfast of cooked eggs, toast, porridge, fresh fruit and hot coffee made by the lovely staff at the villa. The location is just a short stroll to the beautiful seaside village of Sanur and its magical beaches and lovely restaurants and spas. We would like to thank the beautiful Camille and her lovely staff Ayu, Dewey and Ketut for making our stay at the special award winning ‘Cottage on Kesari’ such a memorable and magical holiday!…
Surely the most welcomed-feeling we ever had! Camille and her team are extremely responsive, caring and genuinely friendly. They will do everything in their power to arrange a care-free stay. We loved the outside area, enjoyed the tasteful decorated room and appreciated the support during sickness. The guesthouse is perfectly located and allowed me to follow my daily running sessions at the beach!! ;-) . Also easy to reach are good restaurants and a great yoga Shala. Or if you prefer a gym, it's also around the corner. So don't look any further; just book - you will not regret it.
Booked for first day in Bali and it was so relaxing I didn't even leave the property. The only improvement would be a golf cart shuttle to the main road as its down a gang and not so inviting for a solo traveller. I was given a room upgrade and breakfast was included so very enjoyable stay. I felt like family in the short time I was there.
This is a great little guest house. My husband, daughter and I stay here whenever we come to Sanur. Great staff and very relaxing vibe. Nice pool. Clean rooms. We enjoy the walk down the lane to get to the main road shops and restaurants. It is also a nice walk to the beach where there are lots of restaurants. Can't wait to return.
Loved my stay at Kembali Lagi! The team were pleasant and helpful. The location is within walking distance to Sanur beach, eateries and shops. I liked that the property is small, it is cozy and peaceful. It felt like home ❤️
I have stayed in all three beautiful accommodations provided by the Kembali Lagi group and during this last short visit, I was upgraded to the magnificent Villa Indah Lagi. I love Kembali Lagi, the Cottage and Villa Indah Lagi. They are just the best. So welcoming. I want to choose my words to say more but the truth is I feel at home, that everything is so beautifully presented but not pretentious, that every corner turned offers another Ummm I love this, I love that. And I think it all comes down to the amazing ability… the wonderful Kembali Lagi team and the Middlebrooks. I wish I had had someone to share it with. It was a quick trip but much needed break.
We loved our stay at this centrally located guest house! Our family with 2 small children stayed in the family suite and we were blown away with the service we received before and after our arrival. The manager created a WhatsApp group before we arrived so we were able to communicate easily with staff with our questions and even order delivery so we had food waiting for us after a long day of travel. The guesthouse is simple but has everything you need. We enjoyed the basic breakfast in the courtyard each morning and the pool was the perfect size to cool off. The beach is a short walk or bike ride away and they have lots of recommendations for activities and restaurants. If you’re in Sanur this is definitely the place to stay!
