The Tanis Villas
Reviewed 11 April 2012

I have to be fair to all concerned & say that my partner & I are sometimes used to standards of a higher level, but we have stayed on Lembongan now each year for the past 8 years & at Tanis Villas 3 times. We have stayed in a few different venues of which value for money left a lot to be desired (Bali Hai are a massive rip off with declining service standards). Tanis Villas for our second stay was probably a little disappointing to say the least having brought friends from Oz on their first visit to Bali.

Whilst it was nice & relaxing for them we were a little annoyed that the venue was empty yet we were given the substandard single rooms which are majestic by Lembonagan standards, but leave a lot to be desired from Bali standards. The larger twin share rooms were oopen and airing & yet we had to walk past these empty rooms constantly. The rooms we were 'assigned' were small & very basic, not even security devices for your valuables STILL. This was an issue we raised the last 2 times we visited yet still not addressed.

The staff are friendly enough, if prompted yet it appears to be decreasing each time we visit (not disimilar to Bali Hai) & is the reason we have stayed in a few venues on the island.

Drainage of effluent next to the villas entrance really needs to be fixed. Walking through this to reach any other venue in Mushroom bay is not a pleasant experience during daylight, let alone negotiatiate at night!

A real shame & embarrassment for us as we think of Lembongan to be the flagship of our visit to Bali each year when we generally bring newcomers. Whilst they thought it was nice, it is on the decline and need to address many issues with the consideration of venues like Sandy bay villa accommodation (which I think will win hands down next time). Jo Jo's as a consideration for anything is sounding like and advert from the owners. Happy to review this in another forum, but their staff attitude toward customers seeking a nice evening out sucks big time...

Room Tip: Not sure what to suggest here, but we weren't necessarily impressed yet others may be. I think t...

Stayed 3 Nights – One of 5 or 6 hotel options on Mushroom Beach, which is in a nice secluded bay. This hotel isn’t directly on the beach, as are the others, but this is reflected in the price (about half). Having said that, it is a 10m walk back, and there are beach, and ocean views from both the pools. Our room was the Ocean View 1 Room, Ocean view was a bit of a stretch but the room was clean, with A/C, and a good bathroom.
They arranged a great snorkeling trip, and rented us a motorbike for half a day, at really good prices.

The breakfast (included) and lunch food was good, and excellent value, but we preferred to eat directly on the beachfront for dinner. The other restaurants were a couple of minutes walk down the beach.

The staff were really friendly, and we would recommend this hotel for both couples and families.

Room Tip: The suites are closer to the pool, but don't have the ocean view. Having said that, the view rea...

We moved here after staying at the main beach, Jungutbatu for 2 nights. The Tanis Villas were absolutely beautiful with really nice bathrooms, many of which were open-air. We decided to stay in one of the upstairs Ocean-View rooms which was great, but could have been a bit cleaner.

On arrival, the towels were filthy and the bed linen was also stained. Towels were promptly replaced as requested, however the bed sheets had simply been rotated so the dirty bits were at the bottom, under the blankets!! Unfortunately we had a rat running around in the wooden roof at night which made us a bit uncomfortable but the staff had tried to find it but were unsuccessful in doing so, so we just put up with it for our 4 nights.

The resort was lovely with 2 decent-sized pools set within a lovely well-kept garden. We enjoyed eating breakfast which was included in the room price and often had lunch there. There was a nice selection of food on the menu and the food was lovely, apart from the mouldy bread we were given one morning at breakfast!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, apart from all the little problems and the staff made our stay very enjoyable. Would definitely go back!

We wanted a relaxing and low key break from mainland Bali and having stayed on Nusa Lembongan 15 years ago, it was an easy decision. The only available place we could find and that was recommended was Tanis Villa. Whilst, Nusa Lembongan has changed significantly in the last 15 years (all of Mushroom Bay has a property on it and the bay is full of boats...not so good), Tanis Villa offered mid range traditional accommodation. It's owned, run and staffed by locals which is a great plus and they immediately help you get into the relaxed swing of the island. It was excellent value for money and for our A$800 we stayed 7 nights, all breakfasts, most dinners, a couple of cocktails each day, a village tour, hire of mbikes for an afternoon and a fishing trip. We'd certainly go back again but, will shower mid to late afternoon in order to get some warm water to wash in......apparently the hot water system wasn't working when we were there but, we coped regardless. ENJOY!
