Medana Resort Lombok
Ranked #88 of 181 Hotels in Lombok
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Very peaceful with beautiful gardens and an excellent pool. Our suite of rooms were absolutely perfect with gorgeous views over the grounds to the sea in the distance. And a really gorgous outdoor shower from our sumptuous bathroom!

The staff are excellent too and nothing is too much trouble. We were certainly very well cared for during out visit. The food was also excellent. We celebrated our Ruby Wedding anniversary here and, to our surprise, our candlelit dinner was served in the garden and the table set amongst a display of red flowers and candles! A night to remember!

When back in Lombok we will certainly return here!

This place was so wonderful. We came here for a couple nights after a week in Gili Meno, and maybe it was just the euphoria of finally having a freshwater shower again (and what a wonderful outdoor shower the Medana had to offer!), but this is officially the happy place that I will revisit in my mind whenever I am blue. Lovely, warm, laid-back staff (family-run business) with a great sense of humor and generosity. Beautiful, spacious room and bathroom with lots of traditional Indonesian woodworking and art. After a blissful Lombok-style massage in a gazebo on the hotel grounds, we returned to our room and watched the most gorgeous sunset from the private comfort of our front porch. Tasty breakfast. Lovely pool. You'll get good discounted rates if you book through them to take a fast boat back to Bali. Absolutely wonderful experience, at a fraction of the price of other resorts nearby. I dream of returning to the Medana for a month someday!

Medana has a beautiful garden and great pool. Staff is very friendly and really trying to make things as easy possible for you. The took us on a day trip to the waterfalls and an old sasak village. The rooms (we stayed in room 1) of the hotel are ok, but I think they need a make over at some points. You can see that the rooms were beautiful a couple a years ago and are well kept, but will need some renewal to make it worth the amount you have to pay. Food in the restaurant was fresh, but not very tasteful. Wifi was quick and also available in the room.

We stayed for a week at this hotel.Oh it was heaven.I found it soo relaxing.The staff were wonderful and their service perfect.But the outstanding feature was the presence of the owners on site who treated us like family.They took us on excursions to various sights and to lunch at The Taman restaurant in Senggigi.Oh they were such nice people.Highly recommended.

I've had the pleasure of spending 4 nights at Medana Resort.

The surroundings are very quiet with a breathtaking view over few mountains and lush forest growth. The beach, which is approx. 10 min. away on motorbike, can be viewed from the top of the resort.

The area around can easily be accessed by the means of motorbike or even car (motorbike just have that extra touch of freedom :) ).
The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. Makes me wish I had booked several more days.

In order to get to sights around Lombok island, it is recommended to have at least a week there.
Hikes to nearby crater will take 2 days. Trips to for instance the Comodo Island are also available, but it requires a longer stay than I had.

Roads are nice and very accessible. No traffic jams and no "head over heels" driving. All in all a place that can be recommended.

No TV, no Radio, no telephone - in short, the place to stay on Lombok if you need a few recreational days without disturbances.

Room Tip: Room no. 6 is the one to go for

We spent Christmas 2011 with owner Resty and her family and staff, and we were made to feel as if we were part of the family. This is a small resort with a handful of cottages, quite different from staying at a large hotel/resort. The atmosphere is calm and slow and relaxing. If you are a Type-A perfectionist, you might be out of your comfort zone, but for anyone looking for a great, easy-going, relaxing and peaceful stay, this is the place. The grounds and pool area are very pretty and well kept. The rooms are sizable and comfortable, with great open air showers. The staff will do anything for you and can arrange wonderful day trips to the nearby Gili Islands or a number of other interesting places. We spent a day snorkeling and lounging under the palms on Gili Meno, and it was probably our favorite day there. It's true, Medana is situated in a more secluded part of the island. You are a good 45 minutes or so by car from the restaurants and resort beaches of the main town, Senggigi, but the staff will arrange rides there and back, or take you out to Kuta beach area for the day. Lombok is usually described as "Bali, the way it used to be," and this seems to be true. It doesn't have the night life, crowds and and more frantic pace that is prevalent on Bali, but quite frankly, we can find that a lot closer to home. It is not the lap of luxury, but it was very comfortable. Our time at the Medana was very enjoyable and we were made to feel very welcome.

Stayed here in between a trip to Gili Meno and heading back to Bali.

Location is key - there is little in the immediate vicinity which means it's secluded but does limit you to eating at the resort. Staff were eager to please but a bit hit-and-miss with two items I chose from the dinner menu not available, and breakfast on the second day had to be sent back as a croissant was still frozen.

The landscaped gardens are very pretty, and the swimming pool superb. We saw few other guests so felt very relaxed at the resort. The rooms are looking a little tired and dated but they are large and again, nice and private.

Overall, I'm glad we stayed here and recommend it if you want a peaceful and relaxing introduction to Lombok.
