There is no clear evidence how the name 'Lovina' originated.  However, its reference has been traced back to the children of Anak Agung Panji Tisna, a clan of the famous Buleleng King, henceforth bestowing his village in Kaliasem with the name 'Lovina', where he built his first bungalow resort.  He said the name is taken from that of a small hotel in India called Lafeina where he stayed and wrote a book entitled 'Ni Ketut Widhi'.
This book is translated into some languages.  In memory of the hotel name, the land authorities approved of the name 'Lovina'.  The other version of the story describes how 2 Santen trees which were planted by him, grew up as if embracing each other. Inspired by such extraordinary sight, Agung decided to give the name 'Lovina', because in Latin it means love or loving each other. Another interpretation can stem from the fact that if you separate the word 'Lovina' into 'Love' and "Ina', it means 'love to Indonesia'.
