Kuta (Lombok) has some nice homestays, is that the sort of accommodation you are looking for?

For surf you can surf off the beach at Seger, Are Guling and Mawi - some also paddle out at Mawun. it is at Gerupuk where you have to take a boat out to the breaks. It is best to try and find someone to share with then you will get a boat for Rp100,000 for two. On your own you will probably pay Rp70,000-80,0000. The captain usually surfs with you. Surf lessons are Rp250,000-300,000 including board rental, boat and instructor.

My favourite restaurant in Kuta is Full Moon - there are reviews for them here on TA. At Tanjung Aan Warung Turtle has simple food in a fantastic setting. If you want some beach time it is a good place to spend a day. (You can also see reviews here) Back in Kuta warung Jawa 1 and warung Jawa 2 are very popular with tourists for cheap local food but in my opinion the new tent that has opened up opposite the puskes mas (public hospital) is tastier!

Thankyou Lombok Lover

We are planning on staying 6 or 7 nights in Kuta and thought of maybe booking accomodation for first 2 nights and then looking around maybe even visiting the Gillies during our stay.

My question

Is accomodation easy to find without booking?

How would we get to Gillies from Kuta?

Are there money changers in Kuta or do we need to organise before?

Should we organise transport from the airport before we arrive or just get a driver when we arrive?

Thanks so much in advance for your advise.

Would you recommend Kuta Paradise or Surfers Inn for two surfers? Ideally Clean, safe with pool and near beach

July is high season so if you want to be sure of a room at either Surfers Inn or Kuta paradise I would book in advance. Surfers Inn probably has more of a surf scene and is busier. Kuta Pardadise, smaller and newer. Both are right opposite Kuta beach.

I agree with LL the full moon restaurant has great food, nice position on the beach and friendly staff.
