We stayed a week and never left the hotel property except by boat to go snorkeling, or to visit the adjacent small islands. We snorkeled from the dive boat operated by a company associated with the hotel. We saw lots of colourful little fish and coral. The divers reported seeing the same things plus a few bigger fish... Everyone was always delighted with their time in the water.
The restaurant menu had just enough variety that we could manage a week's worth of meals without feeling like we were eating Nasi Goring all the time. The food was good. The staff were attentive and friendly.
There was a decent reading light in our room!
Another guest complained to me that the hotel was too far from anything, but I thought he would make that complaint about any hotel on Lombok. The nearest chain coffee shops and burger joints are on another island... and yes, the villages near the hotel are squalid third world places, but that isn't the hotel's fault. We liked the fact the hotel was out of the way, it forced us to slow down and unwind. We enjoyed an entire week without going anywhere in a car, and even managed to avoid turning on the TV in our room (except to watch the royal wedding).
