While the story behind the palace is intriguing and symbolizes Lombok's history as well as recognizing all religions contribute to a society - it looks like it has fallen into disrepair. The guide (who seemed to be on auto pilot and droned away at us) was a returned 'lombokian' from other parts of the world. He failed to bring to... More

this water palace.. nothing much also~! originally I don't even feel like commenting.. but I feel like I have the responsibility to warn others.. just look out for my photos.. that's basically all of it.. and most importantly you have to DONATE 20k for admission..

This palace is very rundown and quite a lot of rubbish in the lake. You do need to pay a guide to take you around and the photos you'll get have the modern commercial shops in the background. If you want to escape the hustle and bustle for a short while, could be place to come.

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
