I just stopped in for breakfast. Check out my photos of the beach! Ooops - there went my appetite. Snorkeling nearby, I had to keep stuffing garbage into the back of my swimsuit to take it back to the boat.

This is the best and closest hotel (in mainland lombok) to Divezone if you want to dive sekotong. We were booked into the Yellow or Sun room. The Room is spacious and the bed is huge and firm. The room comes with fan only, but it is cool enough at night as the sea breeze sweep into the room.We used... More

This is a good address for family looking for tranquility while being immersed in the rythme of the small village where Bola Bola is located. The staff is helpful and friendly (arrange transfert to Sengiggi). The price are middle-range. All travelers staying at this place must try on of the local dish (However even the Beef pizza was amazing !)

We didn't received a god service at all. Staff didn't speak english and didn't really want to understand in any other way. There is a beautiful view but the front beach was a bit dirty. The scooter they rent us was borrowed from a friend near by and was actually broked...Not such thing to do around...except for the gilis in... More

We had a 2 night stay here and whilst the price was pretty reasonable this place had a slightly unloved feeling. As with many places in Indonesia they are often foreign owned but then left in the hands of lovely but rather passive local staff who don't really understand the expectations of western visitors (and we live in Indonesia so...

The location is good, next to the beach. The rooms are okay, but there were some insects we don't like in our room. The most terrible was the food!! The prices are pretty high for what you get and the most ingredients were out of stock (high season, 1 aug.) and they didn't inform you when ordered. This hotel is... More

We arrived during low season and that is the word I would use to describe our stay here - low. We were the only people staying here and the staff were very disinterested. Our room was fairly basic which I don't mind at all as long as its clean which it was not, there was lots of lizard poo on... More

agree with both of the reviews below. Bola bola is simple with a touch of style in the decor. The owner Huib and his staff could not have been more friendly and welcoming. Food is good and tasty as long as you choose the local dishes and there is plenty of choice to try something different every day for a... More

We came to Sekotong after the strenuous Mount Rinjani climb. It is well off the beaten track and away from modern hotels and night life - which is what we wanted. The hotel has a great position with its own beach and snorkeling over coral gardens within 50m. We started in one of the hexagonal houses looking out over the... More
