After enjoying ourselves at the Gilis, Rinjani we came to Sengiggi. We started to feel a bit guilty about not getting out and seeing the cultural side of the island so booked a tour that stopped in a few places and temples including this one. All nice enough, but there are a lot of temples in Asia and these ones... More

Place is beautiful but the local guide was horrible. After buying our tickets, a man presented himself as our guide. Many of the places are blocked off and only accessible by following the guide. We were advised to provide donations for entering the temples and the crazy bit was that he started hinting that many of the other tourists donated... More

I think Lombok is great but this place is truly abysmal. Dirty, run down and the guide is a snarky gay guy who wants donations for his 'services' and more money towards maintaining the temple which obviously isn't being maintained. Give it a miss.

This place sounds great doesn't it, a water palace conjurs magical & spiritual journey through time. This place does have significant social history in Lombok, once the home and King and Queen. Sadly the palace was bought by Chinese that turned that part of the grounds into a mini mall. Everything looks run down and it looks like a hobbo's... More

Went here at the end of an awesome day after seeing the sights in Lombok. When we first came in we had to put on sarongs and pay a 5000rp fee each, which I thought was reasonable. We then had a guide given to us, you could tell he didn't want to be there, he was really disinterested. The place... More

I have just came back from a trip to the Mayura Water Palace, a short distance to Mataram Mall. This is a public ground for all locals to visit but you would need to engage their tour guide if you need to visit the floating palace and the Indian temples inside as these places are locked. Ended up, the tour... More

Had an extra day in Lombok and decided to take in some nearby sights. Got to the Mayura Water Palace without difficulty. At the small entrance was a table with 2 guys. When asked how much was the entrance fee, we were told it was 3000Rp. We were told it would be around 1000Rp but settled to pay more because... More
