Info : Novotel Lombok
Situated on the south coast of Lombok, this Novotel hotel opens onto the white sands of Kuta beach, approximately twenty minutes’ drive from Bandara International Airport. With plenty of activities and trips to fill the time, this hotel is well suited for the active traveller and for families.
Novotel Lombok has seventy four comfortable and bright superior and deluxe rooms available, as well as fifteen traditional Sasak villas and ten exclusive private pool villas. All rooms have modern décor, with accents of Indonesian influence throughout. This child friendly hotel allows up to two children below the age of sixteen to be accommodated for free within their parents' room.
There are four separate public swimming pools throughout the hotel, two of which overlook the white sand and blue seas of the bay. Numerous water sports, such as surfing, kayaking and snorkelling are available for guests. The hotel runs a daily activity schedule on top of this to keep both adults and children entertained. For families with energetic children there is a kids' club, an outdoor playground and babysitters, all of which allow parents to take the opportunity to relax and make use of the sunbathing areas and extensive spa treatments.
An extensive array of culinary styles is included within the menus of the hotel’s three restaurants, catering for many different tastes. The informal beachside Spice Market restaurant offers daily themed buffet dinners with nightly evening shows to entertain guests, while the other restaurants offer a more formal dining experience.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
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.
