Offering an infinity pool and views of the garden, Karar Lombok Boutique Hotel is set directly on the beachfront of Bumbang Bay in South Lombok, 15 km from Kuta Lombok. The staff, starting with the manager, was incredibly helpful. One of the best service ever.
Boasting a garden and terrace, as well as a restaurant, Duyung Rooms & Resto Gerupuk is set in Bumbang. The accommodation offers entertainment staff and room service. Its genuine and you get a taste of the simple life in the small fishing village of Gerupuk. Roosters, chickens and cats adds to the atmosphere. Food is affordable, tasty, good breakfast included and the Duyung family is welcoming and friendly. We went for interesting excursions and I got to see and attend a traditional wedding parade. Surf is world class and reachable with boat. If you wanna surf and have some tranquility between the sessions, this is the place to stay.
Facing the beachfront in Bumbang, Bruce's Hideout features a terrace. Featuring a garden, the 1-star guest house has air-conditioned rooms with free WiFi, each with a private bathroom. The best place to stay in Gerupuk. Close to the town and restaurants. They organise scooter hire for 50k a day and if you need a surf rack on the scooter then its 60k for bike and rack. Surfing no problem they organise a boat to collect you from the small beach in front of the property for 150k a trip. In fact if you need anything Bruce's wife Tania will sort you out even recommend places in Kuta to eat etc. The accommodation is open plan kitchen and lounge area. The only negative is the lack of hot water for showering even though your in the tropics its nice to have warm water to shower. The bed was comfy and there is an air-con in the bedroom. If you don't like steps and a steep walk up to then book a chalet on the beach. Just wish Bruce would open the same place in Kuta.
Overlooking the Indian Ocean, Bumbangku Beach Cottage offers guests both traditional bamboo fan rooms or modern air-conditioned rooms. Steps from Bumbang Beach, it has canoeing and barbecue... Highly recommend! You are secluded so nothing near by but the staff are amazing and so accommodating. There are a varierty of activities to do (if you don't want to lie around on the beach all day). The food is really nice and the same price as you would in Kuta (many reviews say it is really expensive but this is not the case). The bungalows are lovely. Our days here were some of our best from our time away
Situated in Kuta Lombok, Inlight Lombok Resort offers a private beach area and a year-round outdoor swimming pool, a sun terrace, and a garden for yoga. The property itself is designed by Maxim, the onsite owner...He has done a great job!! It's really beautiful and is incredibly relaxing. It's really surfers paradise, as there are multiple breaks on the doorstep; a long paddle out to a reef break and a quick boat journey in the opposite direction. I didn't get to surf as I was with my daughter but next I come, I will!!! Every member of staff was wonderfully friendly and smiley...Ira and Maxim are full of interesting info about the area and very helpful. The simple menus on offer are lovely and offer healthy food. Yoga mats are available if you want to practice in the sun overlooking the variety of pools and ocean reefs. The rooms are clean, simple and well designed. The place is very tranquil and peaceful a real haven/sanctuary. The nearest local beach is 10 minutes away in a taxi, and is huge sweep of maybe 3km of white powdery sand fronted by sealer turquoise waters and backed by an array of Warungs and loungers. There's really no need to go anywhere else... Water taxis take you out with your board and drop you at he break, if you want. Johnny the taxi driver we used every day, was awesome, friendly, funny and a real dude. If you want to get away from it all and be well located to visit other places such the cool town vibe of Kuta, but want to be away from the hustle and bustle, this place is for you. I highly recommend this place...
A great place for surf off boats and hanging out with villagers as they bring in white bait on the beach, and in their shops and homes. Plenty to explore by scooter via rough but not busy tracks. Good, cheap, low key place to spend time.
If your not surfing here dont bother. Nothing more to do and the locals dont speak english at all. Wonderful spot for surfing though. Everyone else that was there was there for surfing. We dont surf 😅
Correct name is Gerupuk bay, and it is really a tiny one street local village, surfing and fishing mainly, which has become a destination for surfers due to the 5 different surf spots in the greater bay area, most of which accessed by boat. The surf is ideal for those wishing to learn, and we had a great experience catching our first waves with ease and thanks to helpful instructors; locals who have grown up surfing this bay. Be aware it is far more rural than neighboring Kuta, and the access for now is via a very bad dirt road that is a difficult ride both by car or scooter. Its also impractically far from Kuta unless you are comfortable riding a bike or staying put and just surfing or laying by the hotel pool for the length of your stay. Food options are surprisingly good but limited.
The area had amazing views, riding around the area by scooter was easy. Most meals were eaten at endless summer, but there were other places to eat close by. The accommodation is geared for adults, my daughter is 17 so didn't have to be entertained all the time, although she struggled with no wi-fi at times. Overall great place to relax.
I dont mind with the remote area. But it lack of maintenance. We found a spiders web in the room corner, the uncut plants in the restaurant. The beach is dirty with many wild dogs around. The breakfast is lame. Whilst the hotel staff are quite helpful and friendly.
The staff were amazing - all of them from driver Juri, to hotel owner Rahma, her second-in-command Ana and Imam and Danny. They very much want to make sure you are happy and well taken care of. Gorgeous location, isolated (which is good!) but close enough to nearby Kuta Beach if you need to head to town. The friend I came here with and I are vegetarian. The restaurant menu didn't have many veggie friendly options (Lombok has a lot of seafood - including lobster, the nets to catch which float under bamboo rafts are seemingly everwhere around this part of the island. We viewed it as part of the charm!) but they were happy to cook us what we asked for (highly recommend asking for tempeh curry!!). This place is a little slice of paradise, and while I don't really want to tell everyone about it because I want it to be the same when I come back, I can't help but rave!
