PostSubject: advice please??   Mon Jan 17, 2011 7:55 pm

Hello All,

I am a true LL virgin..having never posted on any kind of forum before.

Want to say firstly how much I appreciate this site...it is a great resource and I feel so much more familiar with Lombok (having never been there) than I did prior to discovering Lombok Lovers. So thank you! I obviously don't know you guys but your posts make me feel like I do. Smile

My family (inc three kids 6-12) are travelling to lombok in a few months and want to visit the Gili Meno....have heard Meno has a bit of a mosquito problem...others say no prob. What do you think?

Also planning some time in Senggigi and Kuta...we will be on Lombok for about two weeks in all. Had already organised accommodation for Kuta prior to finding this forum but VERY keen to go fishing with Made having read so much about Mimpi Manis and the fishing trips.

Thanks to this site have also organised accommodation at The Beach Club.

Would also appreciate any suggestions for activities with kids given age spread of 9,10,12.

Thanks again. Smile

Hi Breezy and Welcome to Lombok Lovers

I cant comment on the mosquitos in Gilis but here in Kuta we didnt have much of a problem really in the past but because there have been so much more rains than in previous years there are a lot more around. That could account for the different feedback you are getting on Meno too. Maybe generally they don't but this year do?

Mainly the things for the kids to do are to enjoy the nature and outdoors. You will not find the kind of special activities here that are laid on in Bali. They should enjoy the snorkeling in the Gilis, the beaches in the south, bike rides, there is also horse riding available in Kuta. Hopefully they will also enjoy playing with the local children and getting to know a bit about the sasak culture and lifestyle. Very Happy

PostSubject: Use of sprays   Wed Jan 19, 2011 8:34 am

During our October 2010 visit to Central Java, Bali and Lombok we carried a can of spray sold at REI stores in USA.

We used it according to the circumstances. These days the quality of sprays that you can apply on the skin has improved.
