PostSubject: Xmas in Lombok   Thu Sep 11, 2008 11:37 pm

Im going to be in Lombok for the first time in December & January. I know it will be rainy season but how bad does it get? As it will be Xmas do I need to book hotels in advance or will I be aright just turning up? Planning on Mimpi Manis in Kuta & Bulan Baru in Senngigi. Do they celebrate Xmas there?

Hi Hit75 & Welcome to Lombok Lovers

December & January arent the wettest months, infact in Kuta we dont have an awful lot of rain in December. Senggigi will be wetter than the south.

Celebrating Christmas - well it is a muslim island so unless you go to the mall and see some decorations you would be hard put to know it was that time. Having said that, at Mimpi manis we do put a tree up and do a Christmas Dinner for our guests. Also Novotel in Kuta and probably the big hotels in Senggig to will have special events on Christmas Eve night and New Years Eve nights. I have been a few years but prefer somthing more low key - and cheaper these days.

True there is not a big fuss at Christmas, but it is still a public holiday on Christmas Day - in Indonesia they observe public holidays for all the main religious days - various tourist restuarants/hotels put on Christmas dinner so you are sure to find something. It is quite hot and steamy that time of year, but if it rains it cools things down a bit (well relatively cooler anyway).

Puri Mas has always a nice xmas dinner with special food and show. I don't go there too often but with Christmass the food is really really special.

Puri Saron has also a special show with doorprizes and buffet. The food is good, but nothing extra you cannot find at the weekly Saturday buffet (which is hard to improve anyway)

Sheraton on the other hand has a very nice new year party.
