Indiana Kenanga Villas
Ranked #7 of 27 Hotels in Nusa Lembongan
Reviewed 7 April 2012

A small place, right on the beach. very nice rooms & beautiful thick towels and nowhere to hang them..
Coffee & tea is provided in the room with tiny, elegant , (useless) cups. Modern stone bathrooms and style-ish shampoo containers which will smash in a thousand pieces if dropped.
The meals were beautifully presented by the chef but maybe the portions are not big enough for a hungry
teenager. Fortunately, next door is the Shipwreck cafe where the food is good, plentiful and cheap.
Breakfast was not included but (again) available next door at half the price.
Nusa Lembongan is a great place and if you appreciate expensive style and elegance, stay at the Indiana

I was surprised to hear that some people had a less than perfect experience at kenanga..

Firstly, The chef Clemant's cooking was amazing, I myself have coeliac disease and lactose intolerance and because all of the food is made fresh it was easy for him to tell me gluten free options! Not only that he visits each table after dinner to check how the meal was and introduce himself to all of his dinner guests ( dinner was often booked out), a very personalized service that I'm not sure we receive enough these days.

Secondly the AMAZING location, very convenient to waterfront and easy to get around island from there on a bike or the hotel can organize a pick up. There is a surf break straight out so for the ladies who want to relax while the man is surfing the hotel offers day beds literally 5 meters from waters edge!! And the staff as always are there at your service with wine or whatever you like! the rooms themselves are tidy and very nice and worth every dollar we spent, right near the main pool off the back of the waterfront restaurant..

Lastly but not least the great staff there!! We wanted to extend our stay there and the managers more than accommodated us after originally not having space, the staff were very polite and always made sure everything in our villa was tidy and running perfectly.. Majority of the staff knew us by first name by the time we left!

It might also be of interest to you that I had the best massage I've ever had in Indonesia at Indiana kenanga! I will definitely be returning over and over!

We just returned from our 2 weeks honeymoon and Indiana Kenanga at Nusa Lembongan was the highlight of our Bali trip. This island is so beautiful with amazing beaches, picturesque scenery and yummy food. But the best meal we had at Indiana Kenanga. Talented French Chef and owner Clement made us very welcome and kept us entertained throughout the entire stay. He is always to hand to recommend island activities and making sure you are been taken care off.

We booked a one bedroom suite for a couple of nights followed by a 2 bedroom villa for the remaining 2 nights. After one night of staying in their beautifully decorated one bedroom suite with an amazing shower and private garden we got upgraded to the 2 bedroom villa. The space is huge and the private plunge pool is just heaven.

The staff and Clement are very helpful and accommodating. It’s so much nicer staying in a small boutique hotel as you get to know everyone and it feels more welcoming. We had some very entertaining nights with Clement and his staff and would certainly recommend Indiana Kenanaga to anyone looking for an unforgettable, peaceful stay on Nusa Lembongan. Hiring a scooter is a must to explore the island!

Should we decide to return to Indonesia/Bali, Indiana Kenanga would be on the top of our list.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra and get the 2 bedroom villa. You won't regret it!

We just loved our stay at Indiana Kenanga. We chose a 2-bedroom villa with private pool. It was beautifully appointed, tranquil and very typically Balinese.
But for us the standout was the restaurant overlooking the lagoon. Wonderful breakfasts, perfect lunches and memorable dinners, created by Clement, the talented young French chef. His garlic soup with prawns was unforgettable!
We found the staff at the resort attentive and friendly, but never precious. When the time came to leave, the high tide and unusually large swell made it impossible for our small boat to collect us. Without batting an eyelid, the manager Kayan and one of his gardening staff threw our bags, and then us, onto the back of their motorbikes and took us to a safer landing place at the other end of the beach. Great service and great fun.
We will certainly return and can recommend the place wholeheartedly.
Roscoe.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good, but for a special treat splurge on the 2-bedroom villa. Fantastic!

Today, 24 March 2011.. We came for massage, looking the place for dinner and also villa for another night to stay.

My wife (Indonesian) meet the guy in reception, asking him if possible to see the villa but he told us check first the price through internet. For sure, we already check the price and the review in trip advisor before we came, that's why we go to Indiana Kenanga. Because we want to stay in 2 different villa. When we came, we not said our budget because we already know the price.

When we are waiting for massage, there is 2 western couple came for see the room and not more that 5 minutes the reception go with them for see the room.

we choose massage first... And, the massage is not good, the price is expensive, looks like same with the massage in the beach.
We already go to a few good spa in Seminyak, with that price we can get the very good package and the therapist is very good. The therapist not offering us for shower and no shower gel and no hot water.

So, we cancel to have dinner there and also cancel to see the villa (because the staff the we asking before maybe forgot that we asking to see the villa)

Maybe, michelin not came to Lembongan for the star.

Dear Guest,

Thanking so much for your visit and appreciate for the review.

We knew that you visited our resort early in the morning around 10.00 am where it's the first day of opening our resort after having renovated 2 weeks. We told you that we have to clean and arrange the Villa for a couple hours before showing it. We meant it would look nice to you. While waiting it, you decided to have a massage and we agreed to look the villa after it.

We didn't realize you felt unsatisfied with the massage even though in the room of massage, there is always a shower and soap. We have talked with our therapist to clear it.

If you have another time to visit our resort, we would give you free for massage and , of course, we 'd make better to reach our 'Michelin ' style. Thank again for your positive idea.

Wayan Kayan.

Manager
