Karen N. | Australia | January , 2013 : This resort is quite off the beaten track. We drove there ourselves and had no trouble getting there.I will say that we paid a $75 transfer fee of which were not able to delete. Be prepared to go in to the resort and not leave until your booking is complete. There is very little outside of the grounds. Our lumbung suite was beautiful. The meals we had were lovely. The setting was amazing and the hot spring pool was our secret. We could not get enough of it. All in all it was very expensive, something you do only once but I am glad we did.

Erin F.| Australia | January , 2013 : we really enjoyed our time here! when we first arrived from ubud (a long 4.5 hour drive in the rain through the mountains) we were a bit concerned about how isolated it really was. we stayed 3 nights and in that time never left the resort (except a boat trip to snorkel off menjagan island which was the highlight of our entire 2 week trip). our first thoughts were that we had locked ourselves into buying all our meals and activities from the hotel, which is never a nice thought when you’re trying to not go above your budget. however, we were pleasantly surprised by the value for money that we got at the restaurant. prices are a bit higher and the selection is not a wide as you would get if there was a little town nearby. in saying this we fully enjoyed all the meals and drinks from this restaurant and the setting on the jetty-like outdoor area certainly makes up for any deficiencies. we stayed mid-jan and found ourselves to have the resort mostly to ourselves which was wonderful. it is a peaceful place to relax. the pool is beautiful and the pictures from the hotel do not do it justice.

Lucile G. | France | January, 2013 we stayed 4 nights in novus gawana and would definetly recommend it to anyone looking for a place away from noise and close to nature, from couples on honeymoonp to family with children.the location is quite unique, in the middle of the mangrove, the pool is fantastic. we lloved our lumbung bungalows, made of beautiful wood.the staff was absolutely adorable. it was the best hotel we stayed in bali!.

Mary W.| United States of America| August, 2012 This is a charming boutique hotel. The exquisite two-story villas mimic the lumbungs in the rice patties. The infinity pool is fed by the hot springs and does seem to go on for infinity! Snorkeling near Menjangan Island was a terrific day trip, well worth the price.

Janet P.| New Zealand | October, 2012 :The setting of Gowana Novus is stunning. The pool and restaurant are surrounded by colorful flowers and appear to blend right into the seascape beyond. I loved floating in the pool with flower petals drifting by and swallows dipping down for drinks. We went snorkeling in the marine preserve, which was just 30 minutes or so by boat. Marvelous coral gardens and walls. Staff were very helpful and the food was good and they even had good wine. Definitely want to go back!.

Patrick L.| Malaysia | September, 2012 :Was a nice hotel yet we found a snake in the room on the last night. Rooms are a little walk from pool. Diving centre there was great, but not cheap. Not many other places to eat around the area.

Brett B.| Australia | September, 2012 :We choose this hotel for the location nearby Menjangan Island. We stayed at a Lumbung suite, which was so luxury and romantic. The location is a little bit remote, so we stayed at the hotel for our dinner. The food was good, but expensive for Bali (100.000 rupiah for an american breakfast). Afternoon tea with snacks was included. No ocean view from our suite,but we got birdsong instead. .

Elise B.| France | July, 2012 :L'accueil est vraiment chaleureux, personnel au petit soin. Le bungalow est tout confort avec une grande salle de bains. Propreté impeccable dans le bungalow et le reste de l'hôtel. Grande piscine avec vue sur la mangrove. Le plus : un bassin d'eau chaude en contre-bas de la piscine qui nous à ravis après l'ascension du volcan Kawah Ijen.
