We'll be flying into Lombok and flying out of Bali in a couple of weeks for our honeymoon. I've booked a room at the Oberoi for three nights, then plan to fly to Bali for the remaining 4 nights.
So my question is with the location of the Oberoi. What is withing walking distance of the Oberoi, with regards to restaurants, groceries, warung, etc. Hotel food is fine, but we would actually prefer something more local for most of our meals.
I'm assuming the best way to get around Lombok is by taxi. How easy or difficult is it to get a taxi near the Oberoi and other areas? I assume the hotel can call us a taxi, but if we go somewhere else for dinner, is it easy to get a taxi back to the hotel?
If we want to go to the Gili Islands, can we walk to the boat dock from the Oberoi? I read that it's pretty easy to charter a boat from Senggigi. Is this possibility from anywhere near the Oberoi? If so, what should I expect to pay for the day?
We wanted to stay at the Qunci, but they were sold out. Same with Jeeva Klui.
Sorry for all the questions. Both wedding and honeymoon are coming up fast, and we are still trying to sort out the wedding details!
