“Unbelievably Beautiful Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

We can't recommend this place highly enough. Having stayed in some amazing hotels around the world I have to say that Qunci Villas is one of the best, if not the best.

The hotel itself is very modern and clean with wonderful views, and the whole place is finished perfectly with every tiny detailed accounted for.

The staff are excellent and the food at the restaurants is top level. Also the breakfast choices are brilliant, I had Eggs Benedict most mornings.

Stay here...you will not regret it!!

Dear Mike_Lydia,

One of the best hotels – if not the best – in the world.

Thank you very much for such a great compliment and we hope to see you back in Lombok again soon where we hope (expect!) to continue to live up to your high standards.

Happy Travels

Qunci is an immaculately kept and ideal resort for relaxation and pampering. On a local indonesian friend's recommendation we came to Lombok and skipped the more touristy Bali resorts - and we loved it - in future we both agreed we'd be come back here without hesitation.

My wife and I stayed 5 days in total, we could not fault this resort for the type of "couples" holiday that we were looking for: Initially we stayed in the garden view room which was clean and very satisfactory considering it's the resort's lowest-end accommodation, the air con worked well and outdoor bathroom was a fun feature. On the final day we upgraded to a one bedroom villa for the private pool and enjoyed using this feature a lot, we ordered room service on a number of occasions (at no extra charge, including fresh green coconuts and rambutans - which arent even on the menu). Gardens and premises are immaculately kept: tropical green foliage abounds, flowers in bloom, sculptures and artwork in every nook. Makes the place feel extremely spacious and peaceful which we cannot understate the serenity of this. We took advantage of the well-priced and well-appointed spa/massage facilities daily (masseuses were well trained and capable, highlights included the couples rooms and the outdoor stone bath was a great unique feature).

The only slight negative: we ate and used the resort's restaurants and bars on numerous occasions - food and drinks were average quality (catered to very bland western palettes in our opinion) and over-priced compared to the stuff you could get in nearby Sengigi (7 minutes away by taxi). Yessy cafe in Sengigi is recommended if you want to try some more true-to-Lombok type cuisines. We also ventured to Mataram, Lombok's largest city where the food and prices again were better (more flavoursome and better value) than Qunci and Sengigi.

Dear TeePee501

Thank you and Lombok itself says Thanks! for your resounding endorsement of the island. We look forward to welcoming you back here again soon!

As for the service, we are happy that you mentioned that you enjoyed our room service and that we went out of our way to provide you with Rambutan and Baby coconut which weren't on the menu.

As for the food itself, if you want spicy food please free to ask for our chef (as we state on the menu). He is happy to adjust our dishes to suit particular tastes with regards to spiciness (just as our staff went out of their way to find you the special fruits that you requested). 

And yes, our drinks can be considered expensive – but not *over-priced *- since there is a 400% import tax on alcohol. Qunci Villas only uses top shelf, imported alcohol as opposed to many local establishments that may use substitute or locally made alcohol, admittedly at a much lower cost. But please refer to postings on this web site's forum plus other web sites about the dangers of drinking substitute/homemade alcohols while dining in Indonesia.

Given your love of Lombok – and your Title to this review!! - we hope to see you back here again and please remember to talk to our chef about your food if it is too bland for you.

Happy Travels

We were greeted at the airport by the hotel pick up and the ride to the hotel took a little more than an hour.Check in was fast and everything was explained in a perfect manner.We were shown to our partial ocean view room and it was tidy and simple which i liked.It had an art decor concept to it which made me feel comfortable.I requested for a tv and they had it installed in 10mins.
The hotel has beautiful grounds and they do a wonderful job with the upkeep.They have 3 different pools so its never crowded and there are enough deck chairs for everyone.
The view from the pool is amazing.The beach is lovely with the soft black sand but unfortunately it is impossible to swim in the sea as there are big rocks and corals.I did try but gave up after awhile cause the rocks were hurting me. Breakfast was brilliant everyday with several choices to choose from and it was a wonderful start to the day.We had lunch several times in the hotel and it never failed to impress and we did try to have a romantic candlelight dinner by the beach but unfortunately we were rained out.What impressed me most about this hotel is the staff.
They were gracious,attentive,helpful and always willing to go out of their way to help you.I give them 5 stars and the management should give themselves a pat on the back for instilling this spirit in the staff.If i had one bad thing to say about the trip, it would be about the hawkers peddling their merchandise.Its practically impossible to relax without being disturbed every 5 mins.I do understand that its their livelihood and i did buy stuff from them but it can get pretty annoying after awhile.Its definitely not the hotels fault and the vendors do go away after they realize that you're not interested. Quinci should be your first and only choice when visiting Sengiggi only because you get the best in every aspect of your stay.

I was travelling with another family and we both had babies with us about 1 years old. We spent 5 days and the experience we had is unforgettable. I still have dreams waking up to our perfect ocean view from our room no. 50. What I loved about Qunci:
1) This villa is truly art inspired by amazing artists from all over the world..South Africa, France, Holland just to name a few. The rooms, restaurants, setting and grounds are all so art inspired and gives a great feeling to it. The art made Qunci very unique from other villas I have been to.

2) The pools are great! They have 3 pools here. One was perfect to watch the sunset, the other we loved was the infinity pool and the last one was the adult pool next to the bar. They had such great chillout areas as well by the pool which was perfect for babies and families. A great big sofa under a wooden roof but feels like you are under a tree inspired by the tree branches that act as the pillars.

3) Food is superb and reasonably priced too. Go for the barbeque and you will not be dissapointed. I loved how it was not a huge array of selections but more detailed and focused on what they offer best. Fresh snapper, tiger prawns and superb desserts!

4) Service is great. We had breakfast served in our room daily! Cleaniless is first class around the resort.

5) My daughter unfortunately had a fever when we were there and I was most impressed that they had a house call doctor to my room in 20 mins! No stress and the doc spoke good english.

6) For surfers, Qunci villa is overlooking an amazing beach for surfing. They had great waves all the days we were there and it was nice watching the local boys surf especially in the sunset.

7) The bathroom is just amazing. You are taking a shower in the open under the starts and sun!

Honestly, you never have to leave the resort once you check in. It has everything to offer for a perfect holiday. However for more of an island feel I would recommend the Gili Islands for a daytrip. Qunci villa's can arrange a boat for you which takes 45 mins to get to the Gili's. Gili Air is the most pretty of the three.

For a bit of local feel...you can try the Asmara restaurant which offers you pick up service door to door from Qunci. They have a nice shop next to it that sells jewellery and house decor. Sit under the hanging plants to dine under the stars and be serenaded by a live performance of a man with his guitar and harmonica.

Qunci, what I would like to see the next time just to add a few more details that lacked in facilities provided in the room were:
1) No room slippers
2) No moisturiser
3) No bathrobes

This is quite a standard offering in most boutique villas I have stayed in so would be great if you can offer them as well and it will be the complete package!

Best Regards,
Sophye Huet

Dear Sophye21,

What a lovely review..and keep dreaming about Qunci Villas and Lombok! (smile)

All of your tips will be quite useful for future guests and with regard to your comment about no robes, slippers and moisturizer, we will look into this but in keeping with our priority of providing value for money we try to keep our costs down so that your costs on holiday stay low as well.

Malaysia is very close with direct flights now from KL so we hope to see you back in Lombok again soon.

Stayed 4 nights on an Ocean View Villa and this is the best beach resort we have ever been too. It is hard to add much more to the other reviews but our highlights are - reasonable room, spa, food and drink prices, stunning rooms, clean sea, amazing design fetures of the resort, happy hour and service. We got the hotel to prvide transport to and from the airport - it is a 1hr trip and costs $30 each way - well worth it. It is hard to think of anyway to improve this place. We will be back for more very soon.

Stayed here for a friends wedding. Had 4 glorious days of laying by the pool, eating delicious good and drinking cocktails! The rooms were stunning and the cleanliness astounding. Staff are consistently friendly and bent over backwards to service us at any time of day or night. Incredible value. Australia could learn a thing or two about value for money and quality service from these guys!
