We were celebrating our 10th anniversary and we chose Oberoi Lombok. We were initially not sure if Oberoi Lombok was the right choice as we were traveling with our two kids (ages 4 yrs and 20 months respectively)- as this place is known more for honeymooners or couples traveling without kids. But I do not regret my decision at all. We had a wonderful stay (5 nights/ 6 days) at the Oberoi Lombok.

1. Our arrival was very well managed right from the airport. There was an Oberoi representative at the airport waiting for us. They had arranged for a very good 7 seater van to drive us to the resort. It was a 1 hr 45 minute ride through dense jungle. It was a long and a winding road. My wife suffers from motion sickness, but the driver was very good and he managed to drive at a good speed at the same time ensuring that it was a smooth ride ( my wife did not throw up and infact she loved the journey :)

2. Once we arrived at the reception, our check in was a smooth process.

3. We were initially disappointed when we found out that the place did not have a kids club ( like the Marriott). But the staff ensured that our kids were well entertained. They arranged for some toys and blocks. Also my wife did not want to feed our younger one, Gerber or Heinz bottled food all the time. The hotel staff ensured that the chef cooked special baby meals for our younger son based on the recipies we gave them. This was done everyday for lunch as well as dinner!

4. I had arranged for a special candle lit dinner for our anniversary and the resort staff managed it with perfection and with great service. They managed to cook a dish which my wife loves but was not on their menu!

5. We forgot our camera a couple of times around the resort and the called us immediately to inform us that they had the camera with them.

6. Our Ocean view villa was amazing and it also had a small garden for our kids to play.

7. They baked an amazing chocolate cake for our anniversary and also for my wife's birthday.

8. They managed to arrange for a baby sitter who kept the kids entertained for two hours while we were having our anniversary dinner.

9. We enjoyed snorkelling at Gili islands. It was the first time we were snorkelling and it was an amazing experience.

We would like to thank the Oberoi Lombok staff for the great service and ensuring that we had a memorable anniversary. We would love to go back!

Room Tip: Choose the ocean view villas or the pavilions, even if you have to pay extra over the garden view rooms. It is well worth the extra money spent. Also ideally select a villa that is not too far from the reception area, else it gets difficult when it is raining. Though they do have a buggy service which is also very good.

Even though it was the rainy season, we couldn't have been in the Oberoi Lombok at a better time. The gracious and kind personalities of almost every employee we met, brightened up our stay. They went out of their way to ensure our comfort level and preferences were catered to for an exceptional experience. Their attention to detail, follow-up with subsequent requests and flexibility were consistent. Some of the staff have been there for more than 5 years and spoke about their jobs with much pride and passion. It was most refreshing!

The resort is very well maintained and despite the distance from the new international airport, it is an oasis for those seeking respite far from the madding crowd. We were so well taken care of and look forward to returning to the family of newfound friends. Terima kasih!

Room Tip: The villas facing the Medana Bay are it!

We stayed in the Oberoi for two nights after staying in Gili Meno for a couple of nights. It's the perfect luxury end to our vacation. We stayed with our two young boys, ages 5 and 8. We loved that there were activities daily - so on one day, the boys got the chance to do some painting on canvas while hubby & I sneaked away for a massage that was out of this world. The massage treatment was fantastic and the therapist is extremely well trained. Dwi was my therapist and I made it a point to book another massage with her the following day.

This is not one of the resorts catered just for kids (like a club med)- there isn't a kids club, but it's definitely a beautiful resort with lots of space and outdoor activities that the boys could enjoy. They also played tennis one day - so plenty of sunshine and running around.

A special mention must be made for Nelly - the F&B manager in charge of breakfast. There was a little mix up during our breakfast where we didn't exactly get what we wanted, when we complained about it to the waitress (there was no caviar in our Royal Breakfast), he was immediately notified and took great pains to rectify the error. He apologised, (again and again!) and really took the trouble to right the wrong. Five class service all round!

The little touches like the afternoon tea at the Bale, the candles in the bathroom, the huge sunken bath tub with the little pond next to it, the bath salt - they make you feel like a princess! I loved it!

We loved our stay at the Oberoi and was so impressed by the service standards that we will definitely look out for other Oberoi hotels for our future holidays.

Fantastic hotel on every aspect: dreamy location. Staff is friendly, helpful and with an outstanding attention to detail. The rooms and the view are totally worth their reputation, and the food, while pricey, is delicious and totally worth giving up our diet for. Highly recommended spot for a dreamy vacation / getaway

We took the 2.5 hour boat ride, followed by a 15 or so minute drive to the Oberoi. Rather than paying $25USD for their jeep, you can take a local taxi from the boat for approx. $4.50USD. No brainer, if you ask me. We were greeted with lovely flower leis and a welcome drink. There were only 4 other couples at the resort (50 rooms) while we were there during November. Similar to most other Oberoi resorts with high quality of staff and good customer service. The food and drinks are quite expensive compared with surrounding prices, and the quality doesn't always translate with the higher price. The food was all pretty good, but not astounding. Snorkeling was good, but unfortunately there was a lot of trash in the water. (we've never seen that before!!) We also took their free trip to the market and village which was interesting. The very nice thing about this resort was the free bicycles, tennis court, and large library of DVDs and books. The pool and view were also very nice.
