wow! it is amazing how different peoples opinions can be on the same spot!! we have been twice to hotplanet with our three young children....we adore it...kerry moira and all the staff are like family while we are there...and the other guests become like that too ...but obviously a lot depends on your attitude.... occasional drip from a roof //....i am stoked to be staying in a gorgeous traditional grass roofed house in a very remote part of lombok..... overpriced// i think the packages are exceptional value ..(massages, incredible delicious menu, surf shack staff and equipment at your service) ...beautiful warm friendly staff .....but if you are cranky uptight and unfriendly maybe they appear differently....cold showers ..kind of exhilirating really... and makes you appreciate the luxuries of western life.... i could counter every bad point with a positive ....i guess it depends what you are after....if you want total western luxury, airconditioning and a hot bath every night go somewhere else...if you love nature and the ocean and people and surf and life in general you are gonna love it!
