Our trip to Nusa Lembongan was in many ways a positive surprise. Not least because we won the bungalow lottery.

The small island of Nusa Lembonban became a greater adventure than expected. A weekend was extended to a week. And we found happiness in the form of a bungalow at Twin Island Villas. With a private plunge pool and divine views to the river between Lembongan and Ceningan.
What initially lured us to Lembongan were recommendations from goods friends and the short description in the backpacker bible Lonely Planet: “Lembongan is the Bali that you dream about but never find.”
What made us extend the stay was reaching our bungalow goals, meeting new friends among locals, a friendly dog called Princess, and Fluffy. A gigantic bug-killer of a gecko that Martin (who is always getting eaten by mosquitoes) is now considering adopting.
