From the moment our driver entered the private gate of the villa, I knew we were someplace special. Magical, actually. I had never seen anything quite like it - three little bungalows separated by a stunning reflecting pool, and a massive open-air living room designed in the traditional style of an Indonesian joglo, but decorated in exquisitely chic furniture and decor. It was so beautiful, with several seating areas, a tv room, two canopied day beds and a kitchen/bar area. Just steps from the dining table, which faces the expansive garden and sea, is a gorgeous fresh water infinity pool. Sheer bliss. The entire property is beautifully lit at night. Each sitting area is strategically designed below ceiling fans which makes it very comfortable at any time of day. The beach front is beautiful white sand, and there are lovely areas under shade for reading, relaxing and entertaining. We had most of our meals in the villa and the food was fantastic! There was a breakfast menu which has a very nice selection to choose from, and the lunch and dinners were set menus, mainly fresh fish, chicken, local vegetables and traditional sauces, all very delicious and satisfying. The villa staff were extremely friendly and lovely, and the English speaking villa Manager, made our stay a dream, organizing our airport transfers, boat trips, local shopping excursions and sight seeing tours. Honestly, we didn't want to leave the villa as it had everything we wanted and more- a very relaxing and comfortable vacation that we will never forget! We will definitely be back!
A wonderful, relaxing holiday at the Joglo House. Our every need was catered for with delicious food and beautiful surroundings. The pool adjoins the main living area (which is completely open air) creating a magical experience, especially at night with all the garden lights on. All the bedrooms are separate from the main outdoor living area. The outdoor bathrooms are amazing!!! Our host, Jacqueline, was so gracious and helpful and we felt completely at home. The beachfront access means that you can just wander down to your own private beach where you can laze on a beach chair or even have your meals served to you. I would definitely recommend having the staff cook your lunch / dinner for you. The food was amazing! This was my first trip to Lombok and staying at the Joglo House made my first visit very special.
