“We will be back”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

Tony the owner has a great little establishment here above the village of Are Goling. My husband and I stumbled across this place last May whilst touring around looking for surf. We loved the look of the place so decided to bring our two girls back for a family stay. The bungalows are basic but the new villas look lovely and will provide a few more comforts once they are finished. The food was great, even if the portions were a little on the small side for my husband. The only downside of this place is the road in when it has been raining heavy. We were lucky enough to have an all wheel drive car so it didn't stop us though Tony is trying to sort this out. The beach is a 5 minute walk down the hill through the village, our girls loved this as all the locals are very friendly. We will certainly be returning in the near future.

On the recommendation of a friend, my girlfriend and I booked into Rolling Waters for 2 nights recently and were not disappointed. Rolling waters offered excellent value for money, combined with stunning views and quiet and peaceful seclusion. We were given a hut right at the front of the hilltop site, and for that we were treated to amazing views of Are Guling beach at sunrise. The staff were extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. The food was extremely tasty and importantly was complemented by a very cold bintang. Although a little bit hard to get to, that is to your benefit if you are looking for something a bit out of the way and distant from the more popular Kuta beach, but still want access to the beaches and surf spots of South Lombok.

Room Tip: See if you can get one at the front of the site

This spot never ceases to amaze us. The accomodation is excellent value for money and the staff/owners are kind and friendly. The restaurant offer a wide selection of food and drinks and over looks the amazing Are Guling bay.

My gf and I walked down to the local village, where we handed out lollies etc. it was great to see all the kids smiles and they are also very friendly with tourists.

We've been back several times and we foresee many more trips in the future.

I stayed there in November is was truly wonderful - Tony and the mob at Are Goling couldn't do enough for their guests and the sense of community was wonderful. The bungalows are located near a local village which is supported by Are Goling through employment and contributions to the local school (a project dear to my hear) and a lot of work is going to regenerate the area with planting of trees etc. That aside the view, the food, the surf (I don't surf but had a great time having a dip and trekking back up the hill for a bintang (well earned) and then a read and a siesta. Shouldn't really be posting this as I don't want too many people to know about it ha ha

Set above the tiny village of Are Goling, the bungalows face direct towards the most picturesque bay on Lombok. The bamboo bungalows are naturally cooled by the prevailing winds and there is one air conditined room. Built high on the hill, the bungalows offer value for money accommodation who want an authentic Lombok vacation. A beautiful beach is down the bottom of the hill (make sure you say hello to the children at the school as you go past) with world class surfing all year round. If the swell gets too big, you can wander over the hill to Marwan and have a bay to yourself.
The Restaurant and Bungalows comprises five bamboo bungalows with queen size beds. The air-conditioned room is smaller but has now views as it is at the back of the restaurant.
The food is as good as you'll get anywhere else on Lombok and very affordable. The beer is cold and plentiful after a day on the beach.
It's a place for those who want to get away from the madness of Bali. It is only a 20 minute bike ride into Kuta, but most people who go to the Bungalows prefer to stay away, even though Kuta on Lombok is just a large village, nothing like the madness of Bali. There is a restaurant at the top of the hill on the way into Kuta. I think its called the Ashtari but you can't miss it. The views are breathtaking and the food is world class. Make sure you have some of their cakes, smoothies and pastries.
The Bungalows and Restaurant have shared bathrooms. Mains power is not yet connected, so power is supplied by a generator set high on the hill.
For those on a budget (around $US20 a night for a twin share room), who want to get away and experience "real" relaxation away from the hassles of Bali, then this is the place to go. They will collect you from the new International airport and its only 30 minutes drive to the bungalows. The local staff from the village are obliging and go out of their way to ensure you have a wonderful stay.
