Living Asia Resort and Spa Lombok
Ranked #7 of 29 Hotels in Senggigi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Stayed at Room 334 for 6D5N Mid June

My first time in Lombok and I had a really good time. This review only focuses on the hotel. Do read my other reviews on locations/sights-to-see in Lombok!

The Good:
1) Staff are nice and friendly
2) Sound of waves dashing against the beach
3) Dinner meal was nice (extra payment)
4) Clean sandy beach
5) Serene atmosphere
6) Easy/cheap to get to resort from main Senggigi area (the cab fare is ~20,000 Rp.)
7) Numerous cable TV channels to suit most tastes

The Okay:
1) Some sellers (items/trinkets/tour packages) at the beach [but security do not allow them onto the hotel outdoor grass area so it's pretty much ok]
2) Occasional power outages (doesn't last for >5mins)
3) Internet connection is strongest at the eating area and main reception lobby (so little/no wifi network in the rooms)
4) Water pressure alternates between mild and strong for all water sources
5) Pillows are REALLY soft (sort of like mush)

The Bad:
1) Mozzies (got many bites on the first night)
2) Breakfast (the difference in quality between the complementary breakfast and paid dinner is vast. I strongly suggest skipping breakfast)

Special Notes:
1) Lack of a gym! (Yes, I'm one of those weirdos who need to maintain some semblance of exercise even during a holiday)
2) None of the rooms (except those infront of the pool) actually face the sea as the 'huts' are all built to face inwards/each other.
3) If you're not going to drink ANYTHING from the bar-fridge, you may request for the staff to remove everything so that you have space for the CHEAP alcohol/ice cream that you're bound to buy back to the hotel =D
4) ALL water on the island is slightly salty and it is highly recommended to stock some bottles of mineral water at the convenience store (Alfamart/Indomart)

Room Tip: Try requesting for a room closest to the pool. I didn't get the chance to do so as the other roo...

I have never been over to Lombok, as I am staying for 1 month in Bali decided to travel over and stay in this recommended new Hotel. Even though there was a slight misunderstanding with my pick up on arrival it was soon forgotten.
My room was lovely, with a beautiful outdoor shower area and was so close to the ocean I could see and hear the waves on the shore. Large bed with wonderful soft pillows, so many hotels have rather hard ones, very good air con and all set in.magnificent tropical gardens.
The new bar area is not finished yet, which will also have another restaurant but the existing one overlooks the beach area and is outstanding both with the level of service from the staff and the food presented to customers. As the Hotel is not close to any shops you will find it is very easy to just stay in for meals.
I did a day trip with driver and must say Lombok was well worth the trip across. The reception area arranged that for me. Full day was Rp550.000 9am till 5pm worth every cent!
I was sorry I had only arranged to stay for 3 nights, could have stayed for a week, but had to return to Bali
So if you are thinking about a 5 star hotel in Lombok look Living Asia up on trip advisor .i loved this place and the wonderful smiling staff made my stay even better. Yes put this one on your list!!

Room Tip: Right down the front with upper level room. You will have wonderful view of ocean and pool area

Living Asia is just wonderful, absolute paradise. I've stayed in great hotels over the years and Living Asia tops them all. From the moment we arrived to when we sadly left the staff provided unmatchable customer service. The dinners are the best I've had at a hotel. The rooms are so clean you almost do not want to go into them and mess them up. The pool and pool area are super clean and an enjoyment to relax in. For us it was all the little things that made this hotel so great: spotless outdoor bathroom, rooms sprayed often with bug repelent, fresh smelling towels, the welcome drink and cool towel when we arrived, the ever smiling staff. There is nothing bad we can say about this hotel, we urge you to book this hotel whilst the prices are still cheap.

It was much better then my expectation from the first impress!
Eventhough the bangallos were not completed yet, all the facilities was perfect to stay for my honeymoon.
My husband hadn't had any ideas about our journey. He looked little bit disappointed on the way to go to Lombok because it was pretty hard to get there from korea. But after we arroved at the resort, he seemed like forgot all about the hard things and just love this resort and everything about Lombok!

All the members of the staff were so friendly, furthermore the food was just great( but little bit expensive)

We willingly spent our money for this resort and had a plan to visit again as soon as possible.

Room Tip: The second floors of oceanview bangallo was very romentic! You can enjoyed the see every moment

We stayed for 3 nights and get an ocean view room, our room was at the closest to the pool and ocean so we can hear the waves clearly anytime. The resort is quite new, even some other rooms had not been used, there are still construction working going but it didn't disturb us at all. Room and bathroom are spacious, with open air shower area, we literally took shower under the sky. Hot water sometimes works, sometimes not but no problem. Amenities were complete include hair dryer, minibar, coffee tea making facilities. Resort are quiet as senggigi is also quiet, perfect for honeymoon and people to get relax.

View is amazing, and it's nice to walk on the beach every morning. Breakfast is excellent, it's not a buffet but a la carte, we can have american, indonesian, continental breakfast, all include free flow tea, fruits and juices. Every afternoon they also serve afternoon tea with light snacks, need to grab it fast as they serve only limited servings.

Staffs are friendly and always greet us whenever we see them.
Room service is quiet expensive, but the taste is good. All I can say is the resort gives us a beautiful memory. The view, surroundings, services and rooms were excellent. It's a recommended resort with reasonable price.

Room Tip: When booking, ask for the best room (the one closest to pool and ocean) and negotiate the rate (like...

We stayed here for 5 nights and can't recommend it enough! The room was spacious and the semi-outside bathroom/shower really good. The staff were so helpful and would do anything for. The staff seemed to really enjoy their work and this was clear during the stay. The food was delicious and the best breakfast we have had during our stay throughout Asia in quite some time. It was lovely to hear the sea lapping against the beach and the view was great from the restaurant. A real gem and well worth a visit! It was only a few minutes into the centre.

We have stayed for 3 nights in Living Asia Resort and Spa get a "deluxe ocean view room" but we do not directly get a view of the beach and sea, we only get glimpse of it from our room. We could go a little closer to the pool, beach restaurant as well.
Our room large and comfortable, but unfortunately they do not provide a dresser and a mirror. just have a glass in the bathroom so had to go to the bathroom if I have to make up.
They also do not provide a hair dryer in the room , should ask for a hair dryer at the ready. And we had to ask for a room spray when the afternoon because there are mosquitoes.
The staff are friendly and always greet us, especially in the restaurant is also in reception.
We want to meet with hotel marketing manager there to say all of our input to some standard facilities that are not at the ready in the room but she was busy and did not have time for us. and we can only say to the friendly receptionist.
But however we have a nice holiday while staying here, we had quiet and private and have a comfortable room during our stay.
We could walk free as we always doing and enjoy the fresh air along the beach every afternoon, and saw many birds came, and we can bird watching some birds there.
Because of its location away from the city center, we always go to the restaurant every day during stay there, and take their buffet package, also choose the menu of selections .
For the breakfast menu is always varied menu but no corn flake as always we take every morning, so we had to order in advance for it.
It was good during the day when we had afternoon tea and snack, but when we came some snacks runs out and we only had tea .
But as far as our stay there was memorable and unforgettable for our holiday with their hospitality.
Quiet and calm during stay here, that's what we love and we have wonderful memories here.
