Villa Ramuh Kami at Selagimpak/Song Lambung Beach on Nusa Lembongen was the best place to stay. We actually booked out the entire villa which came complete with its own staff – to great Balinese guys (Komang and Gede) who were very helpful – if we wanted anything organized, like multiple scooters for a tour around the island or massages by the pool, they would organize it for us - and even better cooks – that traditional Balinese birthday feast that they cooked for us was fantastic. The guys organize breakfast every day – at no extra cost. Any extras – like a special dinner, alcohol, drinks, massages, scooter usage is extra and all prepared in a bill and paid for at the end of your stay - but usually at cheaper rates, depending on what the guys can organize, and the guys may even lend you their scooters if you only want it for 1 person.Breakfast was different every day but usually consisted of bacon, sausages, tomato and eggs (a different style every day) with toast and juice.The main villa consists of 2 X double bedrooms with their own ensuites, 1 X twin bedroom with ensuite, kitchen and large open air lounge area upstairs with a TV, DVD player, bar and fridge and a view of the water and, if you are lucky, sunsets – half of this area can double as a extra sleeping area if you have a couple of extras – we had 3 kids sleeping up here. There is also a little bungalow available to stay in away from the main villa, perfect for couples or a single person – it has a TV, DVD player, fridge, mossie net and its own ensuite - and for a bloody good price - $120 for the 4 nights – this is because we were part of a group booking and we had booked out the entire villa. All these rooms are available to be booked out as a complete group or by individuals who just want one room for a couple of nights – sort of like a bed-n-breakfast when this happens.The place had its own pool and we spent many hours in it when we weren’t roaming around the rest of the island.The villa is located just up from Selagimpak/Song Lambung Beach – a quiet bay with a handful of small resorts and villas and restaurants. The Villa Wayan – a small beachside restaurant and bar - is advertised as being part of the Villa Ramah Kami complex and is nominated as the villas restaurant on the web site. The food and restaurant wasn’t flash but was very tasty – we went back there twice, so it must have been good.The staff are excellent and we enjoyed staying here the most – thanks so much guys.
