We were advised to go to the Oberoi in Lombok for our honeymoon in May 2007. First impressions were wow. The hotel and grounds were beautiful and if its a peaceful holiday your looking for then this is the place to go. I wouldnt however recommend this resort to someone who likes relaxing, however also likes getting out of an evening to try something different. The only place to eat of an evening was at the Hotel and as its not a big hotel, there is only one restaurant. Previous reviews are right and the menu is very limited. We only stayed for 4 nights and the menu didnt change.
We also found the food and drinks within the hotel very expensive, compared to that if you were to eat out at restaurants and bars elsewhere in Lombok. For a three course meal with wine it wil cost you £70 - £80 per couple.
We did manage to venture out one evening, however as there was nothing near by we had to get a taxi. The taxi takes aprox an hour to arrive due to the distance it has to come. The nearest town is singigi and this is a 45 minute drive.
Although we enjoyed our stay at the Oberoi, i dont think it will be somewhere i will return to. This mainly because we arent really a relaxing couple. I dont mind sunbathing in the day, however in the evening i like to venture out and try different things.
If you are the relaxing couple then i would def recommend this resort because it truely is breath taking.
