It’s no secret that most folk will make a beeline straight from the airport terminals in Denpasar for the surf-washed beaches of Kuta and the Bukit Peninsula. The result is that the northern shores of the island remain a little less in the spotlight. Cue Lovina. A chilled and handsome resort that’s far away from the well-known waves; it’s a spot for bamboo bungalows on the sand. A backdrop of pristine jungles and resident dolphin pods (Lovina is considered the place to go dolphin spotting in Bali) only adds to the draw.
