If you are looking for a get away that is unique with plenty to do or simply a place to kick back and relax - this place is worth investigating. Peter, the owner, was accommodating, a great conversationalist and an excellent host. The hillside bungalow is chock full of character, has fabulous views and splendid sunsets right from the bungalow's deck. Sit back relax and enjoy or spend your day combing the island or snorkeling. Peter took us out snorkeling on his boat - the swells were high that day and the snorkeling was not so good but we combed beaches for shells and spent a bit of time in the water. Peter dropped us off at another part of the island so we could walk through the village, talk to people at another resort and caught a local boat back to Secret Island.
In the dining area Pete has a wide selection of music and video's - something for everyone's taste. Rustic and wonderful, I would recommend this resort to just about anyone. This resort is not for those who have physical disabilities with restricted ability to walk or climb stairs.
As it came time to leave, Peter went above and beyond and drove us to Kuta, shared lunch with us at a divine organic restaurant near Kuta, Lombok. He ever so patiently spent quite a bit of time on our long and winding journey to find our next resort. Part of the problem was each hotel/resort we looked at simply could not compare to the warm hospitality, charm and character, I experienced at Secret Island Resort. Thanks Peter...I will be back!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Secret Island Resort is a Eco friendly small resort with a very good small beach in front. We are slowly rising up to a 3 star quality hotel in a 5 star location. There are now 7 units with solar hot water and now there are 2 'Bungalows over the reef' available. These are stable units attached to a dock within easy walking distance to the Restaurant and lounge. These two bungalows over the water are the only ones in either Lombok or Bali. The snorkeling is great nearby and the fishing is still good to. SIR operates a 9 meter sport fishing boat called 'Scorpio' that is very good for touring the 12 South west gilis and snorkeling to. ... more less
