Looking for a beautiful hotel on the beach for our last 2 nights on Lombok celebrating birthdays and anniversary. I am looking at Tugu and Qunci villas. I love a beautiful beach and the beach at Tugu looks nicer than Qunci Villa. Advice and any other suggestions would be great. Thanks
Looking for the best snorkeling experience and cannot decide between north gili and southwest gili. Also, looking for a beautiful beach for the last few days of our trip and wondered about selong balanak . We are traveling with our 3 adult children and saw Villa Atas which looks beautiful but only has 1 review. I am a little nervous about booking without knowing a little about the area. Any other advice for beach spots would be appreciated.
We are not climbing and want to hike the waterfall and visit local villages. We have a reservation at Rinjani Lodge for 1 night but wondered if I should stay 2 nights. Is there enough to do if you are not a climber?
I am heading to Lombok tomorrow and the forecast looks like rain and storms for the next week :(
Any suggestions for activities on rainy days?
My hubby and I will be in Lombok for 4 nights or so. We were thinking of taking our time and riding around the island on scooters. Would appreciate your thoughts on this. We have bike licences back home and will have international licences ect. Wondering what the roads are like? Any to avoid ect. If anyone has an ideas on an itinerary? And accommodation along the way? Can't seem to find much info on the net.
Thanks in advance for any ideas you can throw our way :)

Dear fellow travelers,
We're currently on Gili Air and want to go to Kuta Lombok afterwards. Can anyone recommend a a cheap transport to get there.
We were thinking about taking the ferry to Bangsal and then probably a cab. Does anyone know the proper rates for the ferry and the cab?
Thanks in advance!
I'll be going on a holiday by the end of October for 3 days.
Any advice on how to travel around? Which is better, by renting a car or just take a taxi?
Whats the budget for all (excluding hotel & flight)?
wondering if day trips are enough to experience the Gili islands or should be spend a few nights and on what island? Gili T?
the plan is the spend 3 nights Bali, 6 nights Lombok, 3 nights Gili T.... and can we leave from Gili T to DPS in one trip? flight leaves at 4pm international ... or should we get an airport hotel for the night before??
Is there anyone can offer solution where to store luggage?
We are leaving from ubud, then planning to stay at gili air for 2 days then lombok for another 3 days then go back to our next destination at bali in seminyak area.
Problem here, we have two large luggages which i am not sure if its gonna be great idea to carry it with the jetty to gili air ( We still can't find hotel we love to stay here, most of we preferred already fully booked). Travel with it to lombok and back to bali again
I am thinking of few options, leaving it at our ubud resort ( Still waiting for their confirmation if they are willing to do this to hold our luggages for 5 days ).
So we would love to hear your experiences here, what would be solution that makes more sense :)
And thank you very much in advance
There has been a rapid spread of the paramilitary criminal organization throughout Lombok in the past 2 years. These criminals are armed and dangerous, they wear full military uniforms and often use this to intimidate their victims althought they arealso not afraid to use their weapons including bush knives and pistols. This is a extremist paramilitary criminal organization run mainly by people from Bima (Sumbawa) , a well known breeding ground for Islamic extremists. IS LOMBOK SAFE FOR FOREIGN TOURISTS?

Hi I am travelling to Lombok in May. My difficulty is being a first timer there is so much I want to see. Is it worthwhile travelling around the island and staying in different accommodation, or just doing day trips and basing myself in senneggi? I would like to see the waterfalls, do a couple of surfing lessons, go to spas and the markets, and do a horse ride on the beach. Would it be worthwhile hiring a car and going around the island? Anyone done this and can give me tips to stay, places to see? I will also be going to the gilis for a few days- is gili t the most worthwhile?
If you are on a cruise ship which docks in Harbour Take tender into Lombok Can you just hire taxi on the dock to take you around for a couple of hours without having to pay the formidable cruise ship prices for tours
I will be traveling to Lombok with my family of 2 adults, 2 x 60year olds and a 1yr old baby. Is there any activity you would suggest for people who are not too mobile? We will be spending 3 nights there so we hope to get at least 1 day of activity outside the resort in Senggigi. Tetebatu sounds very nice but would it be advisable with a 1yr old? We will be renting a car with driver and I reckon my parents would be able to walk for 30mins or so but unable to do steep treks. We like to experience local food and culture and would be great to see some nice scenery.
Any suggestions would be most welcome. :)

Diving at Lombok Islands , is it probably to see manta ray? Thank you!

Hello, I'd like to stay in accommodation that is close to good body surfing and also shops/markets - within walking distance if possible! We are travelling with our 1 year old baby and would prefer not to be in cars as I understand that there are no baby seats in taxis/cars.
Thanks for your assistance!

But my agency is getting me a high price for that, about 400Us Dollars. My question is, it's easy to arrange in local any driver to do a full day tour?
