To give myself a break after a frenzied week I decided to go to Lombok and visit the Cocotinos Sekotong Boutique Beach Resort for a restful weekend. I was there last year and had good memories from that new resort and was wondering how it was doing now. Arriving on a Garuda flight I was impressed with the new airport using sky bridges docking at the terminal. Because it is not used to capacity yet with many empty spaces, the interior could have a bit more color and sparkle as a welcome, after all you arrive at a beautiful exotic tropical island, which deserves better than a dreary monotonous look.
Arriving at the resort, I was pleasantly surprised with the changes since my last visit, a matured landscaping and a delightful semi permanent extension of the restaurant giving the feeling of sitting right on the beach enjoying the sound of the surf. There were also more items on the menu now and I was delighted to see the cooks daring to move out to the restaurant to cook for your breakfast besides the buffet. As a notorious bread eater I enjoyed the whole-wheat varieties. Oh yes, I was flattered that the staff that recognized me from the last visit and recalled my angriness of getting my fresh juice with sugar although it was my fault not telling them, so now they were asking to make sure it was right. As I just wanted a rest I did not go snorkeling although the weather was perfect nor did I venture out on a biking tour on the brand new bikes or trying out the new kayaks. The room and spacious bathroom were spotless and I enjoyed the little touches especially the local delicacies brought to your room as an afternoon.snack.
