I stayed here for one night together with my girlfriend. After a quick 5 minute boatride from Lombok island we were on the resort. And what a resort it is! We really regret only having had the one night to stay here, because we would have loved to stay longer.
The rooms are very clean and spacious, outside showers have hot water and great water pressure. There are also a lot of nice touches such as soap wrapped in banana leaves and fans with remote controls.
It really is a true getaway destination. They are the only resort on the island and so you really feel like a castaway there. They are very environmentally conscious, which is a welcome change to the norm in Indonesia. Water is free of charge and they don't even sell plastic water bottles, you can just refill them as you go along. The food is also really good and the drink are very reasonably priced.
There are lots of activities to choose from. We chose to rent a canoe and snorkelling gear and made our way to a very small uninhabited island in front of the resort which can be reached in about 15 minutes. We explored the island, lay on the beach and went snorkelling in the crystal clear waters. Apparently, some of the nicest dive spots in Lombok can be found in the south, so next time I will definitely try that.
All in all, this is a real unique experience in Lombok and I would recommend it to anyone!
