Well, if you love Bali you will go nuts over Aqua Nusa Villas, Nusa Lembongan
Where do I start... even though we live in Bali, we haven't been to Nusa Lembongan for about 20 years. It's only a short 30 min fast ferry ride from Sanur in Bali and at the moment two per day. We went on D'Camel ferry and there is plenty of others to choose from.
The fare now for 2 people return is RP600 or about USD45....very reasonable
The ferry is well organised and they carry your bag on. We just travelled with a backpack each.
I suggest wearing slip on flip flops as you have to get on the back of the boat and you are calf deep in water. The water is beautiful and warm, so nice and easy.
We had pre organised rental on a scooter before we left but even if you haven't there are many over there.
I recommend Aldi from Aldi as he was there waiting for us and he took us to our accommodation...so super easy and that's how I like it.
He also does tours and snorkelling His Facebook is Aldy Motor Cros Whatsapp 0819 1624 1981
If you are travelling with a surfboard make sure you request a bike with a rack to make it easy. We opted for a bigger bike an Nmax and it was around USD 7 per day. You could get a smaller bike for a lot less.
There are really no cars on the island , just bikes so it is such a pleasure to get around. The only cars we saw where like a work ute and probs only saw about 5 in 4 days.
Bali is a nightmare to get around but here was the opposite and you immediately got into the chilled island vibe.
Aqua Nusa villas was only a short 5 min ride from the ferry. As you walk up the stairs you can just feel it's gonna be good. I can't even describe the view as we were walking up. On the walk up to the villa you are surrounded by many stunning restaurants virtually sitting on top of the water.
The villa is a luxury one bedroom 2 bathroom villa with a kitchen . It opens out onto a lovely wide patio facing the amazing view . There is a lovely big couch outside, table and 2 sunbeds. Oh, did I mention the 2 level infinity pool that is all yours.
Inside there is a lounge room with a big TV. To be quite honest we never even put the Tv on!
The bedroom has a king bed and is very spacious with lots of wardrobe space and looking right out to that spectacular view.
The master bedroom has a really big bathroom, huge shower and good lighting.
The kitchen had a small electric hotplate , sandwich maker, etc. We only made cups of tea and coffee as there are many reasonable priced restaurants in walking distance or a quick bike ride.
I thought the restaurants in Bali were very affordable but they are even cheaper in Nusa Lebongan. We ate at some great restaurants whilst there.
The view from our villa was out of this world and I cant even describe to you how fabulous it was to sit there in the evening with a cold beer and wine.
The villa we had is called Villa Chantique and in the Aqua Nusa complex, I think one of the prettiest villas. The villa is so private and your own private infinity pool really takes it to another level.
This villa would be so perfect for a honeymoon or a romantic getaway.

About The Island
Super easy to get around but you do need a scooter to make life easy. Riding a scooter is very easy here as roads aren't crazy like Bali.
You can go across to another island called Ceningan. You get across by driving over a yellow bridge. Its a famous bridge and has been rebuilt in 1990 as it collapsed and 9 people were killed. The bridge is only big enough for motorcycles.
