I have been very busy and stressed with months of overtime in the office and so I thought why not choose a quiet place to chill out. The resort was a very pleasant surprise: so nice and peaceful in its own private beach, away from the usual busy tourist traps that nowadays you find in so many popular places such as Bali and Phuket. OK I love Bali also, but if you have been there recently you will know how bad the traffic is. What a relief then it was to find Lombok so "unspoiled" by comparison - no traffic jams! The rooms are beautiful and well decorated and spacious with high ceilings, with aircon and fan. The bathrooms have very nice details and provisions for us. The staff was fantastic. So friendly and warm. I was surprised they planted banana trees among the old coconut trees but it works. Together with the flowering plants, the place feels so cosy and looks so charming, like someone's lovingly-cared-for private garden. The food was tasty and a good mix of Asian and Western. I complimented the chef who would try to make any special request that we had. The prices were not cheap but reasonable and comparable to hotels and resorts on the island and elsewhere. i suppose I cannot expect to pay warung price in a nice resort. I was told the bananas we ate came from the trees in the resort. I went on a boat ride and the islands were like little jewels floating in the blue sea, still looking pristine and untainted. The snorkelling is excellent and highly recommended.The resort is basically by itself, without any bars or discos or restaurants nearby. The resort is also located away from the villages, which means less noise, except for the occasional wayward motorbike with the big exhaust. So it was ideal for me as I was tired of the hustle and bustle of the big city and really needed a good rest and I got it, especially after a couple of visits to the spa on the beach. Although I stayed in a Garden room, I was shown the villas on the beach front and they looked really inviting. Especially the Rinjani Villa, which has an upper deck with a newly added "loft" sitting area next to the bed and whirl pool - wow really cool! I will definitely be backed and next time I would like to try out one of those villas with private pool.
