This hotel is very pretty, and well maintained. The food is great, and the staff are very friendly. We took a fast boat from Bali to Lombok and had to take a 20 minute cab ride to get to the hotel. there isn't a lot immediately close to the hotel, but it was a very nice place to spend a night. The happy hour drinks were not very good.

Stayed with a group of 8 plus one small child, we all loved it, all our rooms were lovely, staff were nice and helpful with tours, taxis etc, short taxi trip $2AUD to town centre. Well designed place, quiet except for a few roosters and motorbikes, get the ocean view rooms. The beach is not that nice for swimming, which I think is common in Sengiggi, but had a lovely pool.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are the best although garden view rooms are larger and have a half dividing wall to...

After a couple of disappointing days on Gili Meno, we returned to Lombok and the Chandi... it saved our first-time experience of Lombok.
Beautiful location, rooms and service.
A gentle, peaceful and nurturing environment.
Amazing value for money!

Room Tip: We chose ocean view rooms, but even the rooms without the view are still amongst beautiful surrounds...

We have just returned from The Chandi Resort where we spent one week in a beach-view bungalow. The minute we arrived we felt relaxed and throughout our stay the staff went out of their way to attend to our every need. All facilities are architecturally designed, tastefully furnished and well maintained. Breakfast is served by the beach and guests can select from an a-la-carte menu including sweet and savoury choices. The fantastic sunsets can be enjoyed from the beach-side Bar which also offers great cocktails, using imported spirits as opposed to local spirits like other bars do. We tried a few restaurants in Senggigi and, with exception of The Square, none came close to the quality of the resort's restaurant. It is a bit more expensive than elsewhere with meals ranging from AU$5 - $18 for a main but we felt it was worth it. On the down side, the beach is not great for swimming but the pool somewhat makes up for it. The road is a bit noisy and the resort is located a 5-minute taxi ride outside of Senggigi (AU$2 one-way). Due to the geography of the site and he landscaping, the resort is not suitable for someone in a wheelchair but prams would probably be fine. We would recommend this resort to those who appreciate the character of a small resort with attentive, personalised service and prefer quality over quantity (ie. a-la-carte dining over buffet dining). Thank you to everyone at The Chandi for a wonderful holiday, we would have loved to stay longer! We will definitely come back.

We stayed in this small but beautiful boutique resort for 8 nights. We had an ocean view room directly opposite the pool with a great view of the ocean. The room was very clean and modern, the staff all very polite, friendly and extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Meals in the restaurant and room service were delicious and well presented.
If you are a party animal, this is probably not the place for you but if you, like us appreciate quiet restful getaways then this resort should be top of your list for Lombok.
A few small negatives, perhaps the hotel excursions were a little bit expensive in comparison to similar services outside the hotel but the front office were very flexible, allowing us to cancel and reschedule a booked excursion at very late notice. then being a non smoker, i really did not enjoy cigarette smoke in the dining area. i guess this is more a case of fellow diner inconsideration rather than any fault of the hotel but a negative none the less.
Overall a brilliant destination, great food and service and excellent staff, we will definitely be returning. Thank you to Wire and his team for a very enjoyable stay!

Stayed here for the first 5 days of our Indo tour. It didn't disappoint. The bungalows were well appointed and immaculate. The outdoor bathroom was gorgeous; showering with a backdrop of palms and blue skies. The food was a little more expensive than some of the restaurants in Senggigi but the staff bent over backwards to please and all were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was served overlooking the ocean each morning, watching the fishing boats sailing by and in the shadows of the palm trees. What more could you wish for? I would definitely recommend The Chandi if you are planning to stay in Senggigi. Mix the hotel's menu with others locally on offer and you have a wonderful recipe.

Our first stay in Lombok, what a pleasant surprise to find this boutique resort at such a reasonable price. 15 Rooms, Very clean,big rooms,friendly staff. Enough sun lounges for each couple, not a huge pool but enough to cool down in. Breakfast excellent, so much that you didnt need anything until dinner..unless you fancy the volcano cake for a snack...delicious. Yes if you are in the garden view I think the traffic might annoy you, but for us the occasional motorbike was irrelevant for the cost factor for this wonderful resort. Pay the bit extra and stay in the ocean view, its not direct ocean view...but certainly visable from your porch. Staff so helpful. As for location , it is a bit out of town...bout 7 min in taxi...it only cost AUD1.50 to get into town, with the staff organizing it no problem.Cocktails are great and very reasonably priced at bout $9.00 for two ( happy two hours). I didnt find the cost that much more than in the town, but yes agreed , fantastic restaurants in Senggigi.D Quake being our favourite.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south dont get the morning sun, but having said that...the breeze that blows through th...
