Hi guys, we are a married couple looking to stay in Lombok for about 5 days. Looking for some ideas / reccomendations for central accomodation not too far from the airport, and beach front if possible, close to food places etc. Not looking for super expensive rates, nice clean - (not rundown place) with aircon rooms - say around $60 per day max. inc. breakfasts.

Hi Allan and welcome to Lombok Lovers

Sounds like Senggigi is the place for you, close to the airport & beach. I havent stayed in Senggigi for a few years now so I will leave it to someone else to recommend specific hotels. There are plenty in that price range so you will have no trouble getting somthing you like.

Hi Gemma ! Nice to meet you, thank you. Hopefully someone will come along and reccomend a nice place. We are travelling there after visiting my wifes family in Surabaya. If no response here, we'll just ask travel agents in SBY. Cheers from Allan & Novi Smile

Hi Allan

You could have a look at:
Intan Senggigi - central in Senggigi which is the main tourist strip in Lombok. Recently renovated I have not stayed there myself but heard good things.
Windy Cottages - recently renovated and upgraded right on the beach at Mangsit - one of the few hotels with any beach left out the front on Mangsit beach. Can't say what the stay or rooms are like, but I like the location.
My personal preference would be Beach Club Senggigi which only has 2-3 bungalows but they are lovely. I took a look at the rooms a couple of months ago, and if I was in that budget range that is where I would stay. They have a pool and small bar which is frequented by expats. Right on the beach and several restaurants within walking distance. Just over the hill from the main strip of Senggigi. Around 350,000 per night. The only question I have on this property is that they were building a backpackers there, so I'm not sure what impact that might have on noise around the pool etc at night.

There used to be an Allan with an Indoensian wife on another forum - same guy?

Hi Allan,

I've stayed here with my family 5 times. Currently the have a special starting at US$20 per nt. (no breakfast at that rate). They incl airport transfers. Not on the beach though. That said, you won't get hassled by the beach vendors. Anyway check out their website. You'll see that the rooms range from 1 bdrm to 3 bdrm suites.

Good Luck.

PostSubject: Some more information on Beach Club   Wed Jan 28, 2009 12:02 am

Allan,

I stayed at one of the cottages of the Beach Club for 11 days in September 2008. Now I understand the owners Glenn and Dee have converted their home to be a backpacker accommodation.

The pool is closer to the cottages. During my stay I noticed guests were on the beach in the mornings and using the pool during mid day.

I would strongly recommend the Beach Club for several reasons:

o Central location - you can call a taxi or flag it down in front of the entrance
o English speaking staff who can customize your breakfast or other meals
o Lodges with sea breeze
o Bar where you can catch up with cable news
o Reasonable prices for food & drink
o Option to entertain your friends for dinner on the beach and
o Helpful staff (e.g. quick ride to the ATM or Internet cafe..)
