“Great hotel!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Have recently stayed here and really enjoyed it.
Staff very friendly and always happy to help.
Bfast fresh and tasty and especially impressed with "propper" coffee served in your own plunger!! LOVE THAT!!!
Also loved that rooms cleaned everyday- this is great for a small hotel.

The previous review said that they heard no mosque noise?? ARE YOU ....... SERIOUS!!!!!???? everyday at 0430!!! it woke me up everyday and the speakers need replacing which made it laughable - however this not hammerheads fault!

Thanks Etik and crew for a great stay!!

Thanks to Etty to making us feel so welcome. We arrived with our young daughter and Etty immediately organised an extra bed at no charge. The room was great and very tastefully decorated.
There was no Mosque noise when we were here and slept well in the very comfortable bed. Room complete with large TV and Indovision and free DVD's.
Will be back for sure!

We decided to cut short our stay at the previous accommodation and stay at Hammerhead due to the close proximity to the new airport. We wished we could have stayed here longer. Hospitality the best you can imagine. Super friendly staff and made us welcome immediately. The hotel is walking distance from Kuta beach, so great for all the surfers out there.

The room itself is spacious, modern, and very clean. The bathroom is large and has a lovely bare faced stoned wall in the shower area, very nice touch. There is a pool where you can cool off and relax before a night out. The breakfast, like many places in Bali you have a menu of which you can choose one item plus a coffee or tea.

The staff are all very friendly, met both Eti and Scott, both lovely owners, Eti is a fantastic cook, made a wonderful meal which was enjoyed thoroughly by us.Thanks to the both of you, making our stay wonderful!

In Short: It’s a fantastic place to stay – clean, friendly staff, near the airport ( 20 minutes drive). A taxi ride away from some magical beaches

Don’t miss: If Eti’s cooking, stay, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Pass on: Bear in mind when booking this hotel, it is near a mosque; hence you will have a moment of early morning prayers and evening prayers. This is not the hotel’s fault, so be advised of this, I cannot understand why people would leave negative feedback about this. If you are aware of it, then you should lump with it.

Suggestion: The only thing is the Kuta beach is not great (too many dogs) – great for surfing, not so great to laze about. Best thing to do is, speak to the reception and hire a taxi for the day to take you to the other beaches around. AVOID using the bemo’s outside, as they will look to overcharge you, and you cannot trust them. Look to go to the nearby beaches such as Mawun etc (ask reception).

This was the first hotel we stayed at on our visit to Lombok and thought it was great. Location is good, not too far from anywhere in Kuta, the rooms are spacious and clean including the bathroom which was very nice. The staff is friendly and helpful and we were never let down. They recommended nice places to eat, which were true to their word, and the motorbike we rented off them was great. Etik also helped out when I had a bit of a cold, providing me with medicine which she had with her, and allowing me to take some with me, free of charge. Airport transport was great, our flight was delayed until 1am, yet she managed to arrange for someone to pick us up on very short notice. He was waiting for us on arrival. The mosque is close by but we were never woken up by it. Breakfast was also lovely and included in the price. Great place and friendly people all round. Recommended!

I spent 9 days at the Hammerhead Hotel at the end of August. Scott and Eti were gracious hosts who really went above and beyond to make our stay a great experience. Since it was my first time to Indonesia, Scott and Eti provided plenty of useful information about local restaurants, places to visit and local surf conditions, even helping us to arrange surf boats, a day trip to Sengiggi and a trip to the local fish markets.
The hotel is located a little back from the beach, away from the street sellers which means you can actually relax. The pool area at the hotel is a great place to chill out and the free wifi means you can get just enough data to post photos on Facebook to make your friends jealous...
There is a nearby mosque that starts early, but after the first morning I didn't really notice it, and as I discovered on some of my early morning runs, everywhere in Lombok seems to be near a Mosque.
Thanks again to Scott and Eti for helping to make our trip something truly special. I am already planning my next trip back to the Hammerhead.

This is our third stay at the Hammerhead. The owners, Etik and Scott are wonderful host. Etik is always going the extra mile to make you fell special and accommodate your requests . Scott will help you plan your stay in Kuta and advise you on where to find the best waves. The staff is friendly. Rooms are very clean with all facilities needed for a pleasant stay .
When it comes to the mosque, it is true that you will probably be awake early with the call for the prayer but if you travel with a minimum sensitivity for local culture, it will no bother you that much.
Lombok is a wonderful island, lots to offer and this hotel is the place to stay
