We stayed at the Waterfront for two weeks as we wanted to dive every day at Manta dive which is part of the same set up and is next door. The staff are super friendly and always have a smile. The rooms are perfect, clean and simple with lovely open bathrooms and set in pretty gardens. Food in the restaurant... More

We were not disappointed with our stay at The Waterfront. Our room was big, clean and had great facilities. I loved the outdoor shower. There are a couple of pools but mostly in the shade. The beach that is great for snorkeling is a stone's throw away. If you plan to Dive with Manta Dive I would recommend staying here,... More

My 14 year old son and I booked the Waterfront so as to be close to Manta Dive while we completed our SSI Open Water Dive Certification. I loved the simplicity of the bungalow - had everything we needed and a cool little front porch and daybed and a cool outdoor shower. The gardens were gorgeous and the pool was... More

A modern, well appointed and comfortable hotel bungalow, gracefully blended in its garden environment. Wonderful bed and bedding. Great outdoor bathroom. Good furnishings. Despite its name, nothing about the hotel is on the waterfront - other than the restaurant. Located right amidst the busy waterfront strip, shoulder to shoulder with other accomodation, restaurants and shops - ideal if that is... More

The waterfront hotel offers bungalow alike rooms with walking distance (2 min) to the sea and about a 10-15 min walk from the harbor.The bungalows are located behind the manta dive shop and lie along a path in a well maintained...

The hotel is 10/15 minutes far from the harbour and it's part of the Manta Diving. We didn't do a proper check in as a guy from the diving center gave us the key of our room. The room is nice (unfortunately the closet is very small and not a proper closet) and the bathroom is a little bit strange... More

We stayed here 2 nights. The room was fantastic and very clean! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food at the restaurant was great! I could only fault it on the lack of wifi in the rooms, which I wasn't too concerned about, but other travellers may want to know this information before booking. Overall it was a... More

Spent three nights at the waterfront, it was wonderful! The rooms were quiet, clean and modern with lovely fresh water outdoor showers, the gardens around the rooms are beautiful and the staff very friendly and attentive. Location is great, within walking distance of restaurants and the harbour with a wonderful view of Lombok while at the bar or restaurant. What... More

We decided not to take the pony express transport from the ferry port and walked with our backpacks for about 10 mins in the heat, then we saw it right next the the Manta Dive Centre. Reception was at the dive shop, which was not immediately obvious, but we were warmly welcomes and enjoyed a fantastic welcome drink under the... More
