Oberoi Lombok

We are planning to stay at the Oberoi in Lombok for 6 Nights in July.

Does anyone know about the location? Is the hotel right in the middle of nowhere?

Are the prices at the hotel (water, food, etc.) reasonable, overpriced or just like usual in Indonesia?

Thanks

We walked the grounds of the Oberoi one night while strolling through Kuta. We did not stay there although that evening was most memerable.

The Oberoi was perfect. The moss grew only in the perfect places, the orchids hung from the tress as if painted there. The waves on the beach rolled in as if commanded by god to do so exactly the same way each time. The grounds were simply stunning. I can still recall the smell of the vanilla beans hanging from the trees and hear the night frogs singing their lullaby.

When I hear the name Oberoi, the word perfect always comes to mind.

The Oberoi is in the middle of nowhere. Meals and drinks are very expensive but the food is very good

We stayed in three hotels in Indonesia and the food/drinks bill at the Oberoi compared favourably. Yes, it is certainly expensive compared with eating out, but the quality and amience won us over. We were on B & B so had to pay for lunch and dinner plus our drinks. We also had a couple of spa treatments whilst we were there. Our bill averaged £100 per night for two of us. We were expecting it to be much more expensive, and thought we had good value for money there.
