The world has enough bland identikit concrete hotels in over-touristy areas, if you want those fine - don't come here - save this gem the rest of us!
Recommended by our Tour Op (Ethos Travel in London) as they had just returned from an inspection - Nihiwatu in Sumba was not in our budget, but this untouched corner of Lombok was beautiful. Surprisingly luxurious Beach Villas (only 5 - but maybe 5 more to come) on a semi private white beach (so clean it squeaked under your feet), my highlight was lying on our huge day beds under the stars (remember them! - most stunning natural display i've seen in years as no light pollution) with a cold (ok, lukewarm!) bintang beer listening to the waves.
Daytime involved long walks, relaxing, and just relaxing. No shops, no bars, just you and nature. But this is why you came right? The staff are lovely (there are limitations - location and language sees to that) - but everyone was determined to make our stay a lovely one, and it highly memorable. No tv's, no wifi, no phone reception - bliss! But you have AC, great food, huge beds, any shortcomings will be slowly ironed out (more sun umbrellas please, and perhaps water coolers in the room?).
I'm planning my next trip already, for longer next time. Despite what others may have said - this is a great place to bring kids (of 8+) - as long as you can wean them off their iPads / gameboys. Bring a frisbee, go exploring. Thanks you JB!
