We booked this place on a recommendation for our honeymoon and were not disappointed. Lombok is a little behind some of it’s neighbours in development and infrastructure but that makes you feel like you are exploring something that not everyone has seen. It makes the experience more special. From the moment the friendly driver picked us up and showed us the beautiful fields and mountains of his country (on the admittedly long transfer) we’d fallen in love with Lombok. The hotel itself is unique. Some parts were idyllic Robinson Crusoe escape and at other times It felt like we were holidaying on the set of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. In a good way. Stunning Indonesian statues and carvings all over the property and the rooms are amazing. We stayed in an Aloon-Aloon villa and the decor and the outside bathroom were simply stunning. Biggest copper bath, ever. The food and service matched the unique brilliance of the hotel. The staff were ever so warm and friendly, always willing and eager to make our stay more enjoyable. The food was excellent and I would love some more delicious fish wrapped in banana leaf! The sunrise and snorkelling excursions on the dragon boat are well worth the cost for the amazing views.
