From the moment you arrive at the Living Asia hotel you immediately start to relax and unwind. The hotel is situated in Mangsit which is much quieter than it's nearest neighbour Senggigi 10 minutes away by taxi. A contemporary modern building consisting of bungalows situated around beautiful landscaped gardens or sea view. A very peaceful setting which helps you unwind and just absorb the beauty of Lombok either looking out across the Lombok Straits to Bali or if you are lucky taking in the breathtaking sunset while sipping an evening drink. The bar which in other reviews was being built and caused some inconvenience to guests has now been finished and complements the rest of the hotel surroundings all of which are very tasteful designed.
Each bungalow consists of two floors, very spacious and well appointed with the usual facilities. (The outdoor bathroom is a nice touch.)
What is above average from other hotels that we have stayed in is the staff. Every review has mentioned the friendliness of the staff but from the moment you arrive you immediately encounter the warmth, genuine friendliness and above all professional hospitality and training from each and every one of them. Dul's wide smile and engaging manner in the restaurant, Sri's professional and expertise in the Spa, Dewa who mixes a mean cocktail in the bar are just a few who made our stay such a memorable one. All Living Asia staff are exceptional and an asset for the hotel.
The food in the restaurant throughout our stay was very good. Each evening the buffet had a different theme from seafood, pasta, local etc which provided variation and was all freshly prepared. (The yellow finned tuna steak was the best that I have ever eaten anywhere .) The restaurant prides itself that wherever possible everything is made inhouse. Fresh yoghurt, pastries, cakes etc and the staff serving as well as the chefs take pride in this. It was another opportunity to engage with the staff and learn from each other. If there is one criticism that we have it's that it is very unusual to find a restaurant or public space where smoking is still allowed. This did spoil the ambiance while breakfasting or taking dinner where guests who had finished their meal where smoking.
An improvement that the hotel may consider for the future is to install a hand rail in the pool to help elderly guests to exit the pool comfortably.
Living Asia is a hotel that we will return to. An exceptional experience in tropical splendour where this hotel has just got it right. Beautiful location, fantastic staff, excellent restaurant. A place where dreams do come true if even for a few days before returning to reality.
