“Beautiful location but cottages needing some renovation”
Reviewed February 7, 2014

Just 10 minutes by taxi from the commercialised Senggigi. Mansit is known for its “Boutique” hotels. We had considered the Qunci villas (not sure how you pronounce it but it made us chuckle) which is probably more swish. The Windy Beach has 22 thatched cottages set in well maintained gardens. We had a two storey cottage. It was very spacious . Downstairs had 2 sofas and a table, wall hanging, granite worktop with tea and coffee making facilities. Bathroom was downstairs which wasn’t quite so convenient. Spacious but a bit dated and the boiler definitely needed replacing . The water was either boiling hot or cold and the tap had to be jiggled back and forth for to maintain a reasonable temperature. The wooden open plan stairs were a bit steep and you had to be careful you didn’t knock your head on the ceiling when going up. Also floorboard in the bedroom a bit loose and you had to be careful you didn't catch your foot in it .Fairly new air con unit was very effective. Food was good and the service good. The manager Hussan was lovely; very helpful and accommodating. Hal, one of the waiters, was particularly friendly and chatty.

Whilst we were there the hotel was in the process of being sold. I expect by next year it will be
spruced up

There really isn't any point in making a review but for those who might consider booking here in the next couple of weeks, don't bother and find somewhere else with some soul. The property has recently been sold for redevelopment. It must have been a lovely place, the gardens still have some charm. The staff are disinterested since they know their days are numbered, we haven't had a smile from anyone, they sit around doing nothing. If you want some service you need to find someone to help. The pool has turned green, we have rarely seen the pool attendant. The bar hasn't been stocked, we could buy beer but that's about it. The couple in the next hut are booked until the end of the month but are thinking of moving on. It's already like a ghost hotel. We saw the owner on 1st & 2nd day and not since.

This is my preferred place to stay in Lombok. The well maintained garden area overlooking the ocean makes it about as beautiful as you could ask for. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind. The owner is a very engaging gentleman, (mention Hash House Harriers and he will take you along!) and he has first class staff. The meals are very good, and inexpensive. So far I have only managed to stay there once, as it has been booked out on other occasions when I have tried to stay. On one such occasion I took a friend out there for lunch. We sat in the garden, overlooking the sea. Neither of us wanted to leave. You won't either.

Located along the quite beach of Mangsit (couple of miles north of Senggigi). Mangsit has a very quite beach with really stunning sunsets over the Gunung Agung (Bali): really impressive, which makes it a very cool place to enjoy the afternoon cocktail. The cottages are well equipped, clean and quite. Breakfast is basic but ok! Swimming pool. If you wish you can organize trips to Gili's, but you can also enjoy and relax a bit for a couple of days in a quite environment (away from more hectic Senggigi).

Staying in Lombok for the 1st time we arrived late in the evening due to the public ferry crossing. Pickup was well organized & drivers bombarded us with tour requests i.e. rinjani, komodo, gilis. Upon arriving at windy beach we were welcomed by reception with a refreshment & shown our upgraded huts. Kitchen was closed but dinner was organized for us which was much appreciated. The main grounds is kept quite nicely with daybeds, an open bar & restaurant, an outdoor pool & walking distance to main beach. This is a great little pocket accommodation ideal for 1st time visitors & couples.

The cottages are beautiful, built in the style of rice stores!
Staff are attentive and friendly and the food is great.
Taxi only $1.50 into Sengiggi town
Beach is not crowded and the water clean with some reasonable snorkeling off the beach.
My wife said she had the best massage she has ever had here and it only cost $6.00 for an hour!

The cottages were charming and I found them very comfortable. It isn't brand new but the location makes up for any deficit there. Very quiet and a bit out of town. The gardens are beautiful and it is right on the beach. It would take such a little effort to keep the beach a bit cleaner. The pool is beautiful and there is a women who gives massages in that wonderful setting listening to the surf. I found the breakfast very good even if the service is a bit unorganized. It never seems important to get everyone their food at the same time in this part of the world.
