To reach the island itself, we needed to hop on a speedboat for a 30 – 45 minutes boat ride from Serangan Island using the speedboat service provided by Tjendana Corporation sister company, The Equator Speedboat, or to use the public speedboat from Sanur area. There are a few drop point in Nusa Lembongan if you’re using the public speedboat, but if you are using the Equator Speedboat, they will drop you in front of Equator Beach Club which is very near to the Lembongan Beach Club & Resort.We could already see the resort from the boat as Lembongan Beach Club & Resort is located in front of the beach directly, plus it’s quite easy to spot this resort among other Lembongan Villas. Just look at the blue colour daybed! Probably you won’t notice this as an accommodation place as the villas are located at the back side. That’s why although it seems the place doesn’t look big if you look from the beach side; the area is actually stretched to the back. In fact, the lobby is located at the back side of this resort. The side that located in front of the beach is the area for the restaurant, the infinity pool, and plenty of relaxing big and comfy daybed. I could just sit on the daybed and close my eyes!
The Mola-mola Kitchen & Bar is the restaurant in Lembongan Beach Club & Resort and located just beside their guest swimming pool. It’s a semi-open air restaurant, but you could also enjoy your meal or drinks on the daybed located outside the restaurant area.What I like from this restaurant is their wooden table and seats, plus their decorations such as plenty of decorative plates hanging on the wall, plus some antique stuff – antique radio, coffee bean grinding machine, and so on. One thing that I notice is their impressive high ceiling and their thatched roof which looks so neat and strong!
My favourite food from this restaurant is their quesadilla. This one is delicious and good, plus I ate it on the front row of their day bed while watching the sunset! A great combination right, and trust me, their daybed is comfortable and the perfect place to enjoy the sunset. Haven’t I told you that this resort is facing the sunset? Ahum … 😉Seating on the front row of the table during the breakfast is giving a peaceful view too, where there were not much activities going on, while we’re enjoying the delicious breakfast with various selections from the resort. Perfect combo to start the day! 😉 …
Lembongan Beach Club & Resort has 26 private villas, where consists of six 1-Bedroom Garden Villas, two 2-Bedroom Private Pool Villas, and eighteen 1-Bedroom Private Pool Villas, and I had the chance to stay at their 1-Bedroom Villa with Private Pool.
Their villas are occupied about 2/3 of the resort area, where each villas has its own entrance door and surrounded with bamboo wall – thus the name ‘private’ villa. My villa was located at the backside of the resort and to reach there, we need to walk on a pathway to the back and passing other villas and a beautiful small garden. We really enjoyed walking on this pathway as it seems that we are walking on a park.I have seen their villas from the photos, but to experience it directly would definitely have a different feeling. Just like when I opened the entrance gate to my villa, I was amazed on how it look. It’s like that we’re entering our own home and this one with private pool and a small garden … And the pool is only for us! It’s not a small pool for kid – where you could only just dip your feet, but you could actually swim in this one. It has around 1.5m depth too. I just wanted to plunge myself to the pool instantly! Then when I opened the sliding doors of the house, the room looks pretty and it’s even bigger than my own room haha! Even though it’s only 1-Bedroom villa, but the room is really spacious. I really love big room as I like to take out everything from my bag and put them on the floor *oops* I like the contrast of the colour from the dark-colour-floor and wall with the soft-colour-furniture. Again, they mostly use wood element in the room, from wooden floor and wall, to the wooden furniture. The room also has a thatched roof similar to the one in the restaurant.
A very comfortable bed is positioned at the centre of the room and has been arranged neatly and it seems that I didn’t want to ruin the bed! They also give us a free hat and bag to be used during our holiday – very useful bag to put everything that we needed while we’re wondering the island!
I was wondering, if the bedroom is this big, how about the bathroom? Yes, the bathroom is also big enough. There’s a space for the sink, the cupboard to hang your cloth, toilet and the shower room – with the rain shower! Really love this big bathroom … 🙂Overall, the place doesn’t look like a regular villa with brick and wall, as they giving a nature touch to the villa. This make feel staying in a home rather than a villa / resort, and I just didn’t want to leave this place!!!
Perhaps you are wondering, is the beach the only access to the villa?
I have told you earlier that the lobby is located at the back side of the villa. There’s a reason why they put the lobby in the back side. That’s because there’s an access to the main road from the back side through a small alley. So if you miss walking on the street just like in the mainland Bali, you might want to walk outside from the back side to the main road. The street looks quite similar then the one in mainland Bali 😉…
There are actually already quite a few villas in this area, but I think, Lembongan Beach Club & Resort is a perfect choice for you to have an enjoyable and relaxing time while in Nusa Lembongan Island. Staying in one of the villas here will give you the feeling to stay in a luxurious place but at the same time to feel like you are staying at your own home rather than in a hotel.
I’ve just found out that you can hold a wedding ceremony in Lembongan Beach Club & Resor too. Just looking at the photos provided by the management, I can wonder that this will be a very beautiful and romantic wedding ceremony.…
While you are staying at Lembongan Beach Club & Resort, why don’t you also book for some water activities provided by the Equator Beach Club which is still one group with Lembongan Beach Club & Resort. The place is near the resort. You can check some of the water activities that you can do in my blog post here >> 4 Fun water activities in Nusa Lembongan.
