We stayed for a few days in Lombok and more specifically in Santai. It was amazing. The bungalow were so cosy and the spot itself fantastic We rented a small boat and went to the Gilli Islands. Turtles and beautiful fishes to see !!

The Santai Inn is owned by Pearl since 27 years and has a very friendly statt, good food, a beautifull garden, quiet and is situated on the seaside. Unfortinately it has been sold and close down by the end of march 2014. The new owners want to reshape the place and replace the 10 old bungalows by 30 new ones.... More

My friend who introduced me to Santai has been going there for years, and recoiled when I said it was my first time ever in a backpackers hotel. I spent far less in five days than I did recently for a night in the Wangfujing Hilton. But this is an establishment committed to its ethos of sustainability and what I... More

We simply adored our time at Santai. Recommended by friends who have been coming for 15 years, we easily slipped into the slow and gentle pace. Massages on our deck, walks on the beach, dinner at the shared table, or at 5 star down the road, what more could we ask. The simplicity was what we needed and the room... More

From the moment we stepped into Santai Beach Inn it had an overwhelming sense of peace. A quaint and quiet village of authentic bungalows nestled amongst a lush garden located right on the beach front. (The beach is only a stones throw away). I have travelled all over Asia and this place is my number 1. Each bungalow has a... More

We only had two night at santai, traveling between Bali and the gili islands, but I wish it had been longer. The cheaper rooms (200,000 idr/night) are very small, but have a great tree house vibe. Pearl is amazing, dinner is great, and there's a long beautiful beachfront a few minutes away.

Great helpful unobtrusive service and like the communal meal atmosphere (everyone sits at a shared table and there is a shared library/reading room). The whole thing is very open which is great but may be a problem for mosquito protection. The mattresses were too firm for my taste (the budget rooms) being basically futons, there's a fair bit of traffic... More

We literally just stumbled across this place when we unexpectedly found ourselves in sengiggi. We initially intended to stay one night but stayed three then returned a week later for another two. Santai is just one big beautiful garden on the beach and the bungalows just fit into the garden as though they are a part of the garden. In... More

I stayed in the Santai Beach Inn for 2 nights, before heading over to the Gilis for further relaxing, and it really doesn't get too much better than this. The bungalows are each nestled in the trees in the complex, but there's a warm intimate feel about the whole area - the sound of the sea 50m away is therapeutic... More
