Lombok is only a ferry ride from Bali but includes a far more chill vibe. With attractions such as Mount Rinjani and Tiu Kelep Waterfall, Lombok is among my favourite areas in Indonesia. This guide can allow you to decide where to keep on Lombok based on whether you would like to venture to the south or north of the island.
Staycation At The Southern Lombok
The southern area of Lombok is where folks go to chill out, enjoy the surf and the gorgeous beaches. You may expect smaller tourists here than Bali in what’s still preferably an underdeveloped area when compared with mainland Bali, even though there are tons of restaurants and resorts. These are the areas that we recommend to stay at Kuta, Lombok.
This is the place we stayed in the southwest. Adored it within walking distance to each of the cafes. Every night we jogged down to the shore for a sunset run and loved their specialization breakfast, which has been included. This place is remarkably beautiful. Bungalow-style villas encircle the contemporary pool in this wonderful property. We adore the high roofs at the bungalow villas and how they’ve made it a lavish but with all the bamboo vibe. For under $65 per night, you’ll be able to get yourself exactly what would cost tens of thousands of bucks in most other nations at Martas Windows.
These villas are so magnificent and scenic you might not need to leave to research. The snowy motif through the house contrasts against the emerald green plants and pool. The villas have been laid out, and the best thing about this 4-star villa is it isn’t as costly as it seems. Certainly have a look at Harmony Villas if you’re searching for a luxurious condominium in Kuta, Lombok.
Staycation At The Northern Lombok
The northern area of Lombok is the best reason for adventuring into Tiu Kelep waterfall or trekking Mount Rinjani. You will find budget guesthouses and gorgeous resorts offered in this area. These are our three recommended choices.
Hakiki Inn Bungalows
The next area we recommend is the worth select known as Hakiki Inn Bungalows. This lodging is exactly what Lombok is about. Set on the border of rice fields using the jungle texture, however also the comfort of a private bungalow. These huts are damn trendy with stairs up into the entry along with even the curved bamboo roofs. It is very near this Selong Rice field view in addition to a fantastic place to base whilst performing the Mount Rinjani hike. With breakfast included for only $26 to get a personal bungalow, you’re cruising!
Blue Mountain Cottage
This is the place we stayed in. Blue Mountain Cottage was someplace we merely randomly reserved but it was great for a couple of reasons. The room was quite basic, but it was comfy using a (once again) quite fundamental personal bathroom. The lodging had a restaurant attached, which is always convenient and also the food was yummy and very affordable. The location of the place was great. You can walk into Tiu Kelep and Sendang Gile waterfall in around ten minutes. We also established ourselves when we improved Mount Rinjani. They let us leave our things within their workplace and cared for them. We also booked our Mount Rinjani trekking excursion through Blue Mountain Cottage. Pretty much it is a perfect budget place to see waterfalls and increase Mount Rinjani.
Jeeva Santai Villas
Jeeva Santai Villas is also our recommendation to get a couple of essential factors. First, the site is excellent. You’re right on the beautiful Mangsit Beach but also within driving distance of Tiu Kelep and Mount Rinjani. It’s a place that provides the very best of both worlds. We’d prefer staying close to the shore and then forcing myself to Rinjani instead of remaining in the hills and being nearer to Rinjani but with no beach. Jeeva Santai Villas is a 4-star hotel with a gorgeous pool, wifi, and very relaxed vibes. It is suitable for a few or perhaps a chill place for a family escape.
