Info : Lombok Lodge
This modern, luxurious beach-front hotel is a real treat, with world class facilities and flawless service on a beautiful stretch of Lombok beach.
The hotel only has nine suites and therefore maintains an intimate boutique atmosphere. It also allows the staff throughout the hotel to execute impeccable customer service, with lovely touches such as cool towels, cold water by the pool and fresh fruit to name a few. Each suite is decorated with crisp whites, clean lines and excellent furnishings. Bathrooms are very plush with big bathtubs, rain showers and Hermès amenities. Sea view suites offer stunning ocean views, with extremely comfortable outdoor areas with day beds for lounging and soaking up the relaxed atmosphere. The hotel’s main Chef Jiwa is well known in Indonesia and creates world class food at the hotel’s restaurant, and the beachside lounges and cocktail bars are great for drinks and snacks.
The shops, restaurants and entertainment options of Senggigi, the main touristic centre of the island, are a 30 minute drive away and the Lombok Kosaido Golf Club is 15 minutes away. Guests can make use of the spa on site or try their hand at cooking, cycling, diving or visit a local market. However, the beach is stunning and reason enough to stay at this gorgeous hotel where you will be treated like royalty and count down the days until you can return.
Luxury - Luxury hotels would have a superb level of service, very comfortable and usually spacious bedrooms, excellent food, great design and character. For us, when we visited, these places all had the 'wow factor'. A luxury hotel should satisfy the criteria of the most discerning clients.
The stand out experiences all involved some locals: the walk in the Bali rice fields with a guide, the trip to the Borobudur eco-village and ride in a horse cart which also charmingly had us playing the Gamelan with local kids.
