“An Idyllic Retreat in the middle of nowhere”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

We went to Qunci Villa on the back of friends' recommendations. The villa itself lived up to its reputation. Clean, idyllic, relaxing and surprisingly good food! Of course, all these came at a price. Expect to spend at least USD20 per meal every time, not expensive in absolute terms, but exhorbitant if compared to the local cost of living.
The villa grounds were really well maintained, though the grounds itself were actually quite small, and there's nothing much to do beyond sunning oneself and going for spa treatments. The revamped spa rooms were beautiful though, and functional with attached open air baths. The main disappointment I have was with the beach- it's nonexistent. I tried swimming in the sea, but its quite rocky even in the shallow waters. Reduced to swimming in the resort's pool which was nice but still a shame.

Dear Audera,

Thank you for your review and for your friend's recommendation to stay at Qunci Villas.

Happy Travels!

We stayed at Qunci for 3 nights and overall, it has been a pleasant experience. The ocean view is phenomenal and the gardens are well-tended. Hotel is situated in a quiet corner of Sengigi, which is excellent if you want to get away from city life. The hotel staff was friendly and attentive to your needs. I stayed in a garden villa and the porch was a peaceful place to chill out in and surprisingly private despite its seemingly open concept. The only drawback is there is no TV set in your room which can be boring at night and u have nothing to do but sleep early. but again, I ended up feeling more rested after my vacation. The room can be further improved with brighter lighting as it is quite dim and more amenities would be appreciated (like slippers, liquid soap, hair dryer). But overall a great experience and I would highly recommend this villa to anyone going to Lombok!

Dear JeanYeng.

Thank you for your review. We like to keep our Singaporean friends happy in Lombok since we are fast becoming a favorite get-away for Singaporeans! And we know how important value is for all of our guests so we appreciate your comment that Qunci provides Good Value.

As for the TVs, sorry that my staff didnt explain to you. But Yes, we do have TVs upon request with international satellite hook-up and also DVD players and films, if you like. We decided not to put TVs in the rooms when we first started Qunci years ago because a lot of our guests like to just “get away from it all” and spend time on the beach or talking with other guests.

But we do appreciate that some of our guests do want TVs at night...so just ask! We'll get one for you. :-)

We hope to see you back in Lombok again soon....

I cannot say enough about this hotel and its location. The rooms are neat, clean and comfortable with a huge outdoor bathroom (just keep to door closed to keep the mosquitoes out - the hotel fumigates the rooms every evening when turning the beds and provides plenty of electric mosquito repellents). Our room was listed as a “partial ocean views” but we could have a full view (villa no. 7) and it was located right in front of the bar with super easy access to the AMAZING infinity pools (three!). Despite our villa being located near the bar etc, we felt we had complete privacy.

The breakfast was fresh and tasty. The food in Qunci’s restaurant was amazing. A well planned menu with very decent prices. We compared their prices with the quality of the food with some of the restaurants in Sengiggi and found that the Qunci restaurants were quite fairly priced as well as tasted delicious.

My husband and I stayed there for 7 nights and did not want to leave. We arranged boat to the Gilli Islands. Just to get an idea, we hired a local boat, not a “fast (speed) boat”, for the whole day and the skipper took us anywhere we wanted to go for a mere $60!! He took us snorkelling around all the beautiful spots and it was very safe. We loved it so much, we did it twice.

Also, there are scooters/cars available for hire from the little huts outside the hotel at around $5 per day! This is a must do! We took the scooter and went further past the hotel (along the only main road) to some of the most amazing sites I have seen. AND be sure to keep your bathers on as you can stop at gorgeous beaches (where the locals hang) and take a swim. There is also a little shack at one of the bends where you can get coconuts. Take a picnic if you can and you can spend the whole day exploring the hidden beaches and local spots.

The massage/spa at the resort is excellent but you want a way cheaper deal, check out some of the spas in Sengiggi. They are really good and cheap. Scuba diving can also be arranged from the great range of diving schools along the shopping strip of Sengiggi. There are also plenty of mini-marts from where you can get extra water, snacks etc. They pretty much sell everything. Some of the mini-marts also have services where they can drop you back to the hotel. Further, most of the good restaurants in Sengiggi also pick you up from the hotel and drop you off after your meal!

Finally, we found the staff at Qunci to be most accommodating and friendly. They make you feel comfortable and ensure that you enjoy everything that this fabulous resort has to offer. My husband was addicted to the coconut water and arranged for one of the staff to bring him fresh coconuts from the local market along with many other local fruits (paying him of course!).

Overall, I honestly cant wait to go back to Qunci!

We went to Qunci Senggigi for a weekend to avoid the crowd in Bali. We looked for one of the best rated hotel in the area, and I have to say that Qunci desserves all excellent comments .
First of all, a special mention for ALL the staff: very caring, smilling, professional.
the location is great, especially at sunset for romantic couples: you would enjoy the sunset over the sea, with Bali in front of you.
We had a room at 1st floor, overlooking the pool, with sea view, and we do not regret it. What a pleasure to take a tea/coffe on the balcony with such a view.
The beach in front of the hotel is quite small and the sea could be rough, but on another hand the view is unspoiled, surfer beginners can practise just in front of the hotel, and for snorkelling/diving, the hotel can organize you a boat for only 2paxs, to the Gilli islands (1 hour to reach 1st island), and it's worth it!! It took me only 5 minutes to organize it with the reception.
I particularly appreciated the care from the staff. Even if I checked out the day of my trip to Gili, they prepared towels for us and we could bring them on board of the boat, and when we came back, they offer us to take a shower in one empty room (I repeat, we already checked out at this time).This kind of attention contribute to make you enjoying your stay until the last minute.
We tried the 2 restaurants, with a good choice of meals at reasonable prices, and some tasty ones.Breakfast is a la carte, with several sets, which would satisfy any particular taste/preference.
We were delighted staying there, and will come back certainly when time permits. I would recommend it especially for couples/families.

Room Tip: give preference for sea view at upper floor. Most of rooms have same standard/decoration, but of cou...

We really enjoyed our stay at Qunci in March. It is a beautiful resort in a lovely location. We had an amazing room with an outstanding view of the ocean & were constantly told by staff when we had to give our room number we had the best room. Th e waves crashing on the beach as you slept was very relaxing.
The breakfast was lovely, A set menu is offered with lots of variety, we never felt hungry afterwards. It is a welcome change from the usual picked over buffet.
The staff were amazing, extremely attentive without being in your face. We found the ones we struck up a conversation with were geniunally interested in our holiday & our life in general.
We ate at the resort several times, not in the restaurant as such but we had tapas by the pool which was fantastic. Very informal but the food was restaurant quality & first class.
I have replied to a forum post before on this subject, but don't feel I would be giving an honest review if I didn't mention the building noise next door. We asked the question about this subject before we made our booking last year, & were assured it was very close to being finished at that time & wouldn't be an issue by the time we arrived for our holiday. It is still very much a construction site, in saying that we were, in the room next to the construction, & it is not a massive problem.It did go on til about 9pm each night, again only hammer
, chisels & the occasional power tool. I know we could have asked to be moved but it certainly wasn't that much of an issue, I just think it should be mentioned in an honest review.
The adults only pool is a great idea, there were lots of family's there which was great, but being able to have a little quiet time was very much appreciated.
We would definetely return to Qunci, it is a great place to chill out & totally relax.

Quinci villas is without a doubt a stunning hotel - it is magazine worthy it's that pretty and it's directly on the beach, the infinity pool looks out across the sand, at night every corner is lit up with candles and fires, there's first class cocktails, the most helpful staff and in general you just feel like you've hit the jackpot. The actual rooms however lack the incredible decor of the hotel grounds which is a bit disappointing. The room is a decent size but we had a thatched roof (the thought of spiders kept me awake at night - seriously) and a small bathroom. We also had a small balcony which we ate breakfast on one morning.

There are 2 restaurants on site which are quite expensive and produce good food - not the best food but good food, both nights we ate there they were full of loud Australians...

Theres a small bar which makes the most fabulous cocktails and they'll bring them to wherever you're sitting - they were quite slow in the evenings as I think they only had 1 person making them...they were worth the wait though especially when you're watching the sunset from a deck chair...

The location of the hotel is pretty much in the middle of nowhere - you'd have to take a taxi into Lombok which we didn't do but you can wander along the beach, theres a little cafe next door which serves beer and large cococnut juices!

The staff are really what makes the Quinci - nothing is too much trouble, they were efficient, polite, friendly and so helpful! They organised a private boat to take us the Gili Islands and carried our heavy luggage across the beach to where the boat was waiting :)

Overall its a very nice accommodation but the rooms and the expensive food were slight disappointments. Also good to note - there are LOTS of people wandering up and down the beach in front of the hotel trying to sell stuff from scarves to jewellery to face painting etc and if they catch your eye they were stand and shout to you...VERY annoying but at the end of the day they're trying to make a living...but it's still annoying!

Dear TheLittleWelsh,

*Quinci villas is without a doubt a stunning hotel * …. Thanks!

Additionally, thanks for your effusive compliments regarding the staff. They take pride in their efforts to make special holidays for all of our guests.

As for the loud Australians, what can I say. Loud Australians, loud Americans, noisy French people...the world seems to be a noisier place these days.

That being said, that is one reason that I built 2 restaurants so that guests can have *their space *. With 2 choices of restaurants, 2 choices of menus and with numerous quiet romantic tables running down along the 160+ meters of beachfront, there should be lots of space to *escape * when we do, on occasion, have noisy guests.

Happy Travels and we hope to see you back in Lombok again soon.
