We stayed at the Puri Mas Boutique Resort during the first eight nights of September and instantly fell in love with the place.
The colourful gardens, although small were kept in excellent condition and the infinity pool was superb even if the water was a tad refreshing.
All the bedrooms are designed differently. We stayed in Room 2 (there are only 17 plus one villa) and this had a private sun lounging area and garden, a roomy porch and the bedroom contained not only a large double bed but had a smaller single and thus would have been ideal for a group of three travelling together.. There was a good sized closet and a large bathroom. This had a central shower unit that was located not far away from an open section in the ceiling and consequently was ideal for observing the weather when using the room.
Although coils are supplied and the rooms and gardens are sprayed weekly, we would advise visitors to take insect repellants with them. The beds do have netting supplied.
The room was adjacent to the Beach Restaurant and then the beach. We had a very sumptious waiter served American breakfast for our first six mornings but this was changed to a buffet style (and not as interesting) affair on our final two mornings. This was due to a group that arrived and filled the hotel. They also brought with them some live music which tended to spoil the tranquility we had enjoyed during the previous evenings. We ate most evenings at the hotel and on one occasion enjoyed a tasty rijstaffel in one of two Javanese beach pavilions. A very romantic setting and highly recommended.
The Infinity Pool at the hotel is truly devine and ideal for those exotic far away pictures. In front of this is the hotel’s private sandy sun lounging area and beyond that Mangsit beach. The beach is ideal for a paddle in the Lombok Straits or for a pleasant walk but one must expect to suffer the odd hawker selling their wares.
The sunsets from the resort are magnificent as are the views of the local fishing fleet. Mount Agung in Bali is often visible.
There is complimentary transport available to visit the sister hotel, the Puri Mas Village where you can find a further enticing pool and an interesting private collection of animals and birds in the attractive gardens. These include, monkeys, deer, a kangaroo, parrots, peacocks, a cassowary and cockatoos. The spa service is also available at this location.
All the staff and the owner Marcel ensured that everyone had an excellent vacation and all concerns were dealt with immediately. The checking in and out was faultless.
We would definitely recommend this hotel for any couple visiting but not for families as there was little to occupy children and the pool depth does not accommodate their size.
