My wife and I went with another couple to Lombok, after a few days in Bali, to escape the hustle & bustle of Denpasar and we are sooooo glad we did and even more happy that we chose Jeeva Klui.
We found Jeeva Klui through tripadvisor and booked one of the villas closest to the ocean. Definitely do this, as the view is wonderful. The buildings are structured in such a way that there are two separate guest rooms, with one above the other. Get one of the upper rooms if possible. Better view and more private with a nicer breeze. The bathrooms are very nice. Clean, spacious and include a round-stone pebble floor in the shower. A nice added touch.
There is some construction of new villas in back of the property but we were not bothered by the minimal noise.
The restaurant's food is very, very good and comes so quickly that we had to take this into account if we wanted a longer dining experience. Great service. The open air restaurant tables can be reserved.
The infinity pool is beautiful and very clean, the spa massages are outstanding, and the two-person covered lounge areas in front of the ocean are highly popular.
The business centre is well appointed and doubles as a cozy library, with shared books that people leave for other, future guests. Wireless gave pretty weak reception in the rooms so one had to go to the restaurant to have any real access to it.
My buddy and I golfed at one of Lombok's two golf courses. We went to the one that rented golf carts. Maybe give this a miss, as the course was not in good shape and was quite expensive. With that said, it was a good way to kill a morning and the round only took 3 hours, due to it being low season with few people.
If you are staying a while, and want to buy a bottle of wine or liquor, go into town via the hotel transport. The mini marts don't sell it (maybe because Lombok is 99% muslim?) but there's a small night club that will sell to you day or night, at reasonable prices (not like in Bali).
Definitely take a boat tour to the Gillies Islands. The snorkeling was excellent. It was like an aquarium with loads of colourful fish and sea turtles. The guys can drop you off at Jeeva Klui at the end of the day, on their way back to their dock.
