Staying in Novotel Lombok is one of my wishes when visiting Lombok. I saw this hotel when I was going to one of the beaches in the southern of Lombok during my previous trip to Lombok. This hotel is actually quite big in the southern of Lombok area and it’s close to the airport too, so that’s why I decided that we should stay here on our last night in Lombok.
Southern Lombok is very well known for its exotic beach, and Novotel Lombok has one of them. In the Novotel Lombok address, it said that the location of the hotel is in Pantai Putri Nyale.
Not only the hotel provides you with a private beach, Novotel Lombok also provides you with everything else. They have 2 swimming pools, lower and upper pool. I could say that the lower pool is for kids.
They also has set one week schedule for the guest, from sport activities, free mini massage, and a visit to the nearby beach. For sport activities, they have set the area on the beach for soccer and volley ball. For indoor sport activity, Novotel Lombok has quite a small fitness room with few fitness equipment.
When you’re tired after all these activities, you could pamper yourself at the In Balance Spa inside Novotel Lombok. I also saw a small open-air hut on the beach for massage. I guess this is for the free mini massage 😉
If you’re hungry, they have 2 restaurants, one called Vue Restaurant, and the other called Spice Market. Vue restaurant serves À la carte menu, while Spice Market is the buffet menu. We did try both. In Vue restaurant, I tried grill marinate pork ribs which was delicious (!!). In Spice Market, the buffet food was actually okay. Dinner and breakfast were served in Spice Market. But the different during dinner time in Spice Market was there’s an entertainment, which was a quartet string group that accompanied us during dinner time. The guests could also request some songs to be played.
Not only restaurants, they also have two bars, such as Breeze Bar that is located beside the Spice Market, and Sampan Beach Bar, which is on the beach 😉
The staff in the restaurant and bar were friendly, especially the one that served us (If I’m not mistaken, the name is Emma (?) from Spice Market and Kasim from Breeze Bar). I didn’t get a chance to take some pictures with them, but we had some good chat there.
Actually Novotel Lombok also caters a breakfast on the hill, where the hill is located on the left side of the hotel; but I think you need to book first for this one. We were not succeeded in getting this on our visit. Probably next time!
Novotel Lombok also has a shop inside the complex. I saw that the stuff inside the shop was quite complete, from the souvenir, clothes, bags, and many things. There’s an ATM too outside the shop (CIMB Niaga).
For the room itself, the hotel has two sections for the place to stay. One is where the rooms are inside the hotel building, and the other is the private bungalows. The private bungalows also have private pool too. This is suitable if you come with family.
During this visit, we stayed inside the hotel building in a superior room. As we entered the room, we’re happy that we had a spacious room! Other interesting thing inside the room is the window at the side of the room. We were on the second floor, so we could easily view of what’s at the outside of our hotel …
All the bathroom and the bedroom are clean, so we really like it! It’s really comfortable for us, especially after we had some activities in the previous days, so we just want to really relax this time and get some more sleep in the room 🙂
I love all the decorations and ornaments at this hotel. All are unique and very ethnic, even most of the roofs are using thatch roof!
At that time, they’re preparing (doing some construction) some more bungalows in the complex, that’s why they’re giving the guests additional complimentary during the stay, such as wifi throughout the resort, 25% discount for In Balance Spa, and adding more shuttles frequency to Tanjung Ann beach.
I’m not sure whether they also provide wifi in the resort during normal period or not.
Novotel Lombok also provided transport to the airport too, and perhaps to other places in Lombok, but we decided not to use this service as I’ve already ordered a taxi to the airport. We didn’t ask for the price too.
Overall, I was really satisfied with this hotel, and will definitely return here again 😉
