“Relaxing holiday villa in the countryside”

I stayed in this villa with my family during the school holidays. It was not our first trip to Indonesia as we had travelled to Bali before a couple of years ago and wanted a quieter place to stay so thought we would try Lombok and I'm glad we did. My kids loved the swimming pool and the beach and me and my husband spent our time in the evening on the verandah enjoying the amazing views. We went sightseeing as well to the pottery and craft villages. The best days we had were when we took a picnic to the nearby islands on the boat and spent the days snorkelling and swimming. We went to the surf beach but it was abit too big for my children - just be careful of the coral on the beach.

How easy was it to book the property? How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

“Luxurious Villa in great area with some disappointments”
Reviewed July 15, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We stayed 3 nights as a couple. The Villa is new, well build and well equipped. You will not find easily a better one in this undeveloped beautiful quiet area of Lombok. Staying in relatively luxury a something in an environment which is poor, with no restaurants near but is absolutely very beautiful.

Mind that the perfect transfer is a 2 hour ride from the airport which goes for the last 1.5 hour through great landscape. Don't do this however directly after a long international trip.

The view from the wide top gallery over the bay with all its islands is beautiful. If however you are easily irritated by traffic the many motors with the local adolescents parading their youth spoils it. After 7 PM the road goes quiet but from 6 AM on their is traffic just 20 meters from that great gallery. One would expect a quieter place on such a remote spot.

There is no beach in front of the Villa. The sea starts just over the road and a sandy beach can be found a 100 meters further on with very shallow water of the bay. Good for children but not for swimming for grown ups. There is the swimming pool which is far enough from the road not to be heard but for good swimming one prefers the water of the Indian Ocean.
For good swimming, deserted great beaches and good snorkeling there is a good boat available at about $ 30 a day with guide and boatman. The boat rides are beautiful.

In the description it says "the villa has a large swimming pool". It is true but it is behind the adjacent villas, about 100 meters walk away (see overview picture of the bay) and it is shared. Now that it is shared is later mentioned in the list of amenities ('Shared outdoor pool"), but that's easily overlooked when you have read the general description. The pool is beautiful but they should clean the cussions in the gazebos which left me with bites of insects.

The musquito nets over the comfortable beds are no good. They are hanging from one point so they are almost hanging in your face and what is worse the four parts of it overlap insufficient so the net does not close well. We had mosquitos in the bed at night and that is worrying in a malaria area.

The Villa is in a coconut groove and yes that is not a garden but also not a just stopped building site with lots of sand. I would have expected a nice garden there but I suppose that will come later.

There is no kitchen but a pantry with a very slow cheap small toaster, no microwave (it came later after complaints) and no kettle to boil water for tea and coffee which one has to make yourself. There is also no coffee or teapot. You have to take the hot water from the water cooler which also provides hot water and put a tea bag or coffee in your cup.
The meals including breakfast are made in the Villa 60 meters down the road and all though they are not bad (medium like in a road restaurant) they arrive cold or medium hot on your table. You can heat them up again in the microwave. OK that all is not a feast of cooking and since there is nothing much else to do then outdoor activities one likes a good hot meal. It would be so easy to equip the kitchen with some essentials to cook a good meal by the staff on the premises or at least a proper breakfast with a pot of tea or coffee.

There is a flat screen TV with DVD, but the international news programs are halved ( less subscription paid) so BBC Worldnews, TV24 France and CNN are not there. Its Euronews and Alqaziraz which provide your news.

The staff provided us with 24 hours internet on their own computer so mails can be send and reviewed. Internet was not in the description. They were nice a tried to give us good service. Don't forget to tip them.

Thanks for your review, we`re really glad you liked the Villa and the Amazing views, and pleased to hear that you would recommend it to your best friend !
You`re right that as the villa has only just been completed, the gardens are not yet established, but as you say this will come in time.
As the Villa has only been open for a few months, we really appreciate any constructive comments, and will address all your concerns about the Mosquito nets etc, and will try and find a faster toaster !
