“Lombok: Unspoilt nature, great place to relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2010

Lombok is a very nice place to explore and relax, it's not as commercialized as its neighbour Bali. I visited a village of the native called Sasak Tribe on my way towards the south to Tanjung Aan and Kuta. Tanjung Aan has nice beach with unique pepper-like sand.

The next day I went snorkling and relaxing by the beach at Gili Trawangan, The beach is so nice. At the north, I also visited a very nice 2 tier waterfall called Senda Giler.

All in all, a great place to go for holiday :)

“Lombok and the Gilis ...... a top drawer holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2010

After a week in Bali which was beautiful once I escaped Kuta headed to Lombok and then the Gilis..... I would recommend both for quality hotels, fantastic beaches, diving, snorkelling and a really nice pace of life. This is Bali 30 years ago

“visa - taking advantage of tourists”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2009

we had booked a seven day trip to lombok from singapore. upon arrival we had a long discussion about the visa and finally got the 7 day one instead of the 30 days one. when leaving we were told we overstayed and need to pay penalty. our stay was 7 days but according to indonesian counting 8 days. actually this was applied to any foreign tourist leaving with the same flight we did. they forced everybody to pay a penalty. there was no choice as they were telling the foreigners their flight would go without them if they did not pay. so finally everybody paid in hard currency taken from next door s ATM.
advice: take the 30 days visa for indonesia or rather pick another holiday destination than lombok !
