“Nice Resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Big resort with beautiful calm private beach. Many spots to relax along the beach and poolside. Rooms are clean and quite big. The breakfast has a wide variety. The only concern is the bar is to small and become very crowded during sunset since everyone hangs there. A better choice than staying in Sengigi beach

We decided to spend a bit more and stay here as we have a 14 month baby. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. There are pools suitable for all ages and it was very relaxing. The massages at the spa were great. The buffet breakfast was quite good but the food was a bit disappointing. We ate out most nights as the dinners we had at the hotel were very average and not cheap. I'd recommend eating in Kuta itself.

Novotel Lombok was the perfect place to stay for a family. Beautiful spot to rest and relax on the beach or by the pool. Staff were all very accommodating especially the beach guys (Cakra) who arranged activities during the day and a great game of volleyball in the evening. Novotel was a little way out of town but they had plenty of transport options and many drivers sit just outside the main gate. The deluxe rooms were very modern and clean but if I stayed again I think I would pay a little extra and stay at the garden villas. You can surf straight out the front of the hotel at Sagar Reef or take a bemo road to many surf breaks around the area.

Our first trip to Indonesia and Novotel Lombok was a good choice.Staff friendly and provided good service.Most of our meals were eaten on the beach near the pool as we had grandchildren with us.Staff at beach kiosk very good and nothing was too much trouble.....the only negative regarding staff was they were a bit scarce around the busy times ....between 12 and 2-----when one is wanting to order drinks and lunch......we will certainly recommend Novotel to friends ...thank you

Room Tip: We were in the hotel .great and I'd recommend if you have small children.

This is cetainly not Bali - good! If you have done Bali and looking for another view of the real Indonesia then Lombok is certainly worth it. Novotel is in a very quiet end of the island. Lots of nice, safe places to walk. Nice beach in front (very few kids selling stuff!) however the surf was too big this week. Water is crystal clear (no plastic bags to be seen). We went down to Tanjong Anna - one of the most beatiful beaches ever seen. Quiet and the surf was good, but watch out for the reef. Only 20 mins from Novotel.
Novotel food was good and prices surprisingly low. Seafood buffet was great. Breakfast menu gets a bit boring. wine list was minimal and expensive (advice - BYO).
We took a pool villa and found it good value.
Staff were also very well trained and friendly.

Room Tip: Go for a pool villa.

First trip to Indonesia and will definitely return to Lombok and in particular this hotel.

The staff were professional, and excellent quality of service. They were always friendly, polite and nothing was too much trouble for them and all carried out with beautiful smiling happy faces. So rare to see anywhere else.

Kuta is a lovely peaceful area and the Novotel and resort is a beautiful relaxing place to stay.

I cannot recommend it highly enough. i will be back next year.

We have just spent 5 nights as a family of 4 in the hotel. The hotel grounds are lovely, very natural and in keeping with traditional lombok and the environment and well maintained. The beach is beautiful- rugged and untouched (as is the whole area), very lush surrounded by Palm trees, vegetation and water buffalo. Staff were very friendly, polite and helpful.
We had hoped to walk from the hotel into kuta village along the beach for dinner/drinks each night, stopping off along the way, but unfortunately this wasn't possible due to the sand on the beach being quite difficult to walk on (very soft and deep- but good workout!) and there are no restaurants or warungs on the beach (we had heard that the government had taken a lot of them down recently). However, you can walk into the village by the road (about 25 minutes) or use the hotel transport which is 35000 each way (£2).
We only ate at the hotel once due to the price, and this was the biggest negative for us. The cost of food and drinks in the hotel was well over double what you pay outside of the hotel, plus they then add tax on top. The same goes for the spa- whilst it was a lovely treatment and still much cheaper than at home, it was over double the cost of treatments anywhere else. If you do decide to have a treatment in the spa, then it is 20% discount between 9-11am.
Another negative would be about the beach sellers. There are a lot of beach sellers, mainly children who were quite persistent and not easily accepting a polite decline. The hotel doesn't support child sellers, and the security guards were quite proactive in moving all the sellers away from the guests in the hotel (however, they soon ran back!) my advice if you don't want to be pressured by the sellers, is to choose seating on the beach a bit back, or to ignore them when they ask (I only say this as even those guests politely declining seemed to still get pressured, whereas those that complexly ignored it weren't).
We walked left from the hotel along the bridge and climbed the hill- amazing views over the bay. There is also a beach restaurant to the left further along.
We went to a restaurant called 'astari' one evening, which is just outside kuta up the hill. It is a a vegetarian, Indian themed restaurant with homemade drinks, cakes and meals, overlooking the bay. If you get a chance then go at sunset.
Overall, we had a lovely time, kuta area is beautiful, so rugged and untouched still and novotel is a beautiful resort and a good base to either enjoy and explore the area or just relax and take part in the activities the hotel offers.

Room Tip: We found there to be a lot of inconsiderate guests, speaking loudly when returning to their rooms at...
