“Amazing place to relax with family or friends”
Reviewed 2 January 2011

We stayed at Qunci Villas Hotel for 3 nights, I wish it was for longer we just didn't want to leave. We had a lovely private room garden view on ground floor with roomy balcony and day bed, fab open air bathroom and plenty of room for our bags. We have a 3 year old daughter and the King bed was very comfortable for all 3 of us, didn't miss having T.V who needs it when there is a stunning pool and view, divine day Spa and great restaurant and share all this with your loved ones. You don't need to leave this Hotel when you come to Lombok just enjoy the service and amenities here, we hired a scooter for 2 days had a look around the Island for a few hours the first day then didn't use the second day as all the beauty was at Qunci. I'm not sure how people can be negative about this place there's absolutely nothing negative about it, even the prayer in the morning I only heard once and that was because hubby left the open air bathroom door open even then it was quite nice and relaxing after all we are in their environment. If you are heading to Lombok don't look any further just book at Qunci the staff are Fab and friendly and you won't be disappointed, Spa is a must as well I tried the Volcanic Mud wrap so relaxing. Thank you Qunci.

P.S the hawkers are quite entertaining if you are relaxing just ignore them and they won't hound you.

For my family and I this was our first trip to Lombok having been Bali regulars for years. What struck us most about the area known as Sengiggi was how run down it was and how few tourist attractions there are in the area.
With that background Qunci Villas is first class, from airport pick up service, check-in, villas, pool and restaurant we could find little to be disappointed with. A highlight was the exceptional staff who were incredibly attentive, friendly and helpful.
The villa complex (and its neighbour separated by one block) stretches from the main coastal road located in a small village Mangsit a few kilometres north of Sengiggi, through pretty gardens to a wonderful pool and beachside café overlooking the Lombok Strait with stunning and evocative views of Bali’s holiest of mountains Gunung Agung.
We stayed in a 2 bedroom pool villa which featured a sundeck and two bedrooms with en-suites with semi enclosed showers. The beds were king size and comfortable and the en-suites are well designed and ultra clean. The small villa pool was partially secluded from the walkways by pleasant shrubs although it is not totally private.
The beach side café and pool are beautiful and provide a wonderful setting for well prepared and tasty meals featuring an Indo menu but with some western options.
The beach however is narrow at high tide, volcanic black sand in texture and full of annoying hawkers constantly trying to get eye contact as you gaze at the sublime ocean views.
The villa spa was pleasant and you can also have a massage under a bale on the beachfront but that does mean haggling with the hawkers.
A highlight was a day trip to the Gilli’s where we snorkelled over pristine coral and swan with turtles. The trip to the islands in a tradional outrigger (albeit with a noisey Yammy outboard on the back!) was part of the fun. Touring on scooters to the North of Sengiggi along a recently upgraded coastal road was also pleasant with spectacular bay and headland vistas.
As previous guests have noted there are very loud calls to prayer from muezzin squawking through a louspeaker at all hours (particularly around 4:30am in the morning) from the nearby Mosque, but don’t act out your fantasy of wandering over to pull out the plug. An American has recently tried to do just that in Southern Lombok and is now serving 6 months in jail for blasphemy.
Overall we enjoyed our stayed at Qunci Villas and could not fault the hotel. We do question why you would want to go to Sengiggi.

My partner, son and I stayed at Qunci Pool Villas for 4 nights and highly recommend it to anyone. This is an outstanding place to stay and ticked ALL the boxes for us...

Fantastic service of staff who were efficient and always very friendly. Every day we got to know members of staff who were genuine and attentive and who looked after us and made us feel special.

Beautiful food and gorgeous wine at good prices. We had some fantastic wine here, and the most amazing oysters. Did miss out on the Seafood Platter the first night, so just make sure you let them know what you want in advance as this is not frozen, but fresh from the local fisherman.

Bigger than great service and food, Qunci has the most beautiful location and atmosphere we found in Lombok. Stunning wood and stone furniture, a gorgeous pool and gardens with the ocean lapping right in front.

With spa treatments costing $40 US for 90mins we had one every day!! Snorkelling and surf on your doorstep, Sengiggi only a 5-10 minute bike/ car ride away. You really must stay at Qunci Pool Villas as it is an unforgettable experience that far exceeded my expectations. We will be back again and highly recommend it to anyone travelling in Lombok as we cannot fault it.

Oh,... and did love the idea of no TV, this made us spend much more time together which is what holidays are about for us.

What a place! The team at Qunci provide a truly magical experience in a location that delivers island ambience, teamed with unsurpassed service across all facets of hospitality.

Fantastically priced, you know you are having a great holiday when you just can’t have another Thai or Balineses massage, after having sensational massages daily. All staff at Qunci Pool Villas were friendly and eager to genuinely make our stay unforgettable, however special mention goes to Eka who made our stay simply fantastic.

From oysters that were as big as my palm and as fresh as the ocean we looked out to while dining, to finding older vintages of french wine from the cellar, there were no bounds to Eka’s willingness to make our stay exceed expectations.

This place is easily equal to Oberoi or the Nam Hai with regards to quality and service and should not be missed.

For the surfers amongst you, there is a wave out front and ramdom 10ft bombs, but as Eka would say “you’re crazy!” Hilarious.... Big thanks to the team at Qunci Pool Villas.

Just a quick review to highly praise both the Qunang and Qusia Luxury Villas. We stayed for 5 nights in December and it was pure paradise. It was the first time we had booked a villa and now we are spoilt for ever more. The butlers were fantastic and did everything possible to take all the stress away - the boys (11 and 8) had an absolute ball and my husband and I actually had a holiday where we could finally chill and relax ... and read books!
Both villas are just stunning ... fabulous location, fantastic food, fantastic everything. We even got used to the call to prayer early in the morning and found it strangely relaxing too (and the boys slept through it completely).
We ventured out to both the Villas and Hotel and again we were nothing but impressed. The food was delicious (how lovely to be away with the boys and not to have a pizza in sight) and the staff so polite and lovely. It may not be the fastest service but this wasn't a holiday for rushing, it was one for relaxing so we kicked back and enjoyed every minute.
The trip to the Gilli Isles was fabulous (favourite restaurant = Scallywags, perfectly named and again wonderfully tasty food). The trip was arranged by the butler so again no stress on our part.
The spa at the hotel was also fabulous and very reasonably priced ... I had a papaya wrap which was a completely different experience!
We can't wait to get out there again and would recommend it to anyone!

I have to agree with some of the other negative reviews about this so called 5 star place. As an expat living in Senggigi Lombok I had business guests arrive. They asked where was a good quality place to stay and in my ignorance(because I had never stayed there suggested the Qunci Pool Villas. On arrival we were shown to our rooms, we noticed there were no TV's in the room and asked, they said they could provide a TV/ DVD for hire if we wanted in our room so I requested the TV only to be told an hour later that there were none available(FOR THE PRICE OF THIS PLACE THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE). Next we decided to sit at the pool and have a few drinks, although beautiful surroundings we were disappointed in the time it took the staff to bring the drinks(THE PLACE WAS NOT BUSY) I thought they were making a home brew in the kitchen for the length of time it took to receive the drinks(FOR THE PRICE OF THIS PLACE THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE). After the pool episode we then went to dinner at the restaurant. Everybody ordered, myself and a business colleague asked for the Oysters on the Half Shell, 12 pieces each we requested @ Rp. 20.000 a piece, in Indonesian terms this is pricey for one piece. After a 20 minute wait we were approached by a waiter who informed us that there was only 10 pieces available so we asked for 5 pieces each as an appetizer. Another 10 minutes and he was back this time to tell us that on opening the oysters they found that they were no good or fresh. My business colleague by now was becoming annoyed, we then ordered the Asian Moon Scallops as a replacement( the waiter said he would provide a few extra because of the no show of the Oysters. On receiving our scallops, 3 scallops sat on a plate Iooking at us, what happened to the extra he said he would bring us, well it did not happen, and the Scallops were cold and for 3 small scallops for Rp. 58.000 it is not worth it (FOR THE PRICE OF THIS PLACE THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE). The next to come was the main meal, I went for the Seafood Combination Platter @ Rp.250.000.00( Again pricey in Indonesian terms), the menu said it contains, Grilled Lobster, King Prawns, Scallops, Fish Fillet and Squid with French Fries and Salad, sound nice right, well wrong let me write what it should say, 1 KING PRAWN ( WELL IF IT WAS A LOBSTER IT WAS TAKEN AWAY FROM ITS MOTHER TO EARLY), 3 PRAWNS, 2 SCALLOPS, I FISH FINGER, 1 LITTLE RUBBER SQUID, the only correct thing about this menu was the French Fries and Salad. (FOR THE PRICE OF THIS PLACE THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE). MY colleagues wife ordered the Whole Grilled Fish of the Day with a note underneath saying MARKET PRICE. Their was no menu price until the bill, the price for this unacceptable dish was R.250.000.00 which is totally incorrect. The fish was small and in the MARKET would have cost approximately between 20.000 to 40.000 Rupiah. After leaving the restaurant my business colleague and wife were so annoyed that four of us left the hotel while the other 2 stayed. So the hotel got lucky again and pocketed our money for the rooms which were not used. Overall I find that this is the worst place I have eaten in Lombok and I have been here for 3 years now, any cheap restaurant in Senggigi Lombok have what they say on the menu, as for this place it is not value for money both in service and food. Oh and by the way, if because there were no TV's available because all guests wanted them, does this tell you maybe you should put TV's in all rooms, just a thought, with the money their making from the restaurant it should not be too hard.

Scott052, Owner at Qunci Villas Hotel, responded to this review, 21 December 2010
Marty,

Qunci Villas apologizes that you and your business guests had such a bad experience at our hotel. Since you have lived in Senggigi for the past 3 years (a town which is a 5 minute ride from Qunci Villas), we're truly sorry that your first visit to Qunci Villas was not a good one.

The Restaurant. You are correct; our prices are not the same cheap prices that you find at local warung restaurants along the road in Senggigi. We charge higher prices first, because of the ambiance and atmosphere at Qunci Villas and second, because of the quality of the food that we serve. We believe that it is for these reasons that most of our guests eat at the Qunci Villas restaurants most evenings and, as well, that our restaurants bring in an additional 25% of its customers from people who live in Lombok or who are guests at other hotels in the area.

With regard to food quality, we take this issue very seriously. We are one of the very few restaurants serving fresh oysters and scallops in Lombok. They are Sumbawa oysters and Southern Lombok scallops which are normally exported to the best restaurants in Bali, as well to Australia, by a Lombok-based Italian company. The quality and cleanliness of the oysters is taken very seriously by the Italian exporter and by Qunci. Our staff have had extensive training on the quality of oysters and if there is any question as to the quality of our seafood,we just wont serve them.

Notwithstanding the above, Qunci management would like to make this up yo you. We are sorry that we cant refund your $300 happy hour cocktail bill but we will certainly refund you for any rooms that that were not used by your business guests and their lady friends from Senggigi. Please just give us a call at Qunci to arrange a refund.

Note about TVs: Since Qunci Villas's inception 7 years ago, we made a conscious decision not to provide TVs. Our guests generally like this - they read more, meet other guests, and spend more time on the beach with their partners. If TVs are critically important to their stay in Lombok, guests will typically book at another hotel. Occasionally, a long-staying guest will want a TV with movies for an evening or two and we have TVs and DVD players for this (for free). We don't get many requests for a TV, so we only have a few. But we will add more to our stock immediately if there aren't enough to meet our guests needs.

Pronounced coon-chi villas, a stunning little boutique hotel located on a beautiful strip of beach. Location couldn't be more perfect! I think it has only 28 rooms, and a few villas with private pool. The design is modern Bali-esque, with an infinity pool right on the beach. Having breakfast on tables made out of beautiful black slabs of stone, next to the pool, right on the beach with Bali's mother volcano Mt. Agung right in front of you and the waves breaking right at your feet ... well, that's paradise. And to mention that you're having a cocktail by the pool, as the sun is setting right next to Agung in the distance? It's what South-East Asia is all about! If you're staying in the rooms, make sure you ask for a room that has an ocean-view. There are also beautiful villas with a private pool ... however, no ocean view. Also, beware that there's Qunci Hotel and Qunci Pool Villas ... I'm talking about the latter, which is the one I recommend. If you're looking for a larger villa with several bedrooms, they have two beautiful villas about a 5 minute walk up the hill that are gorgeous. Perfect for a family or large group of friends.
