Lembongan Beach Club & Resort Nusa Lembongan Reviews
Great stay in a modern villa with private pool Sep 10, 2015
We stayed at Lembongan Beach Club & Resort at the end of August 2015. Originally we wanted to stay at just one hotel in Lembongan but as hotels filled up we decided to split the stay between Lembongan Beach Club & Resort and Batu Karang (see separate review for Batu Karang).
We arrived in Lembongan with Marlin express boat service and they took us to the hotel. I guess it must have looked pretty funny as we arrived in tights and workout tops as we came directly from a Mount Agung hike that night. Check in was done in an open air lobby and we were assigned to room 110 – which had an entrance right next to the lobby.
The room was great upon entering – the first door got us into the villa with a private balcony and a private pool. The next door took us into the room where we looked right at the kingsize bed that turned out to be quite comfortable. In the corner there was a decent size flat screen TV, there was a chair with a table but also a sofa. Behind the bed we found a dark wooden desk, there was a safe and wardrobe. I’m not sure I think it is the best solution to have the bathroom sliding door act as the door in front of the wardrobe and safe. This meant that the door would crash into the safe at times. The small fridge contained some drinks and it was complimentary and replaced each day.
There was of course air-con in the room but also a very modern looking fan attached to the high ceiling. This fan seemed to operate at its own will but we managed to get the temperature in the room right in the end.
The bathroom was located right behind the bedroom and was big and modern. When walking in there was a modern basin with dark wooden furniture around it. On the right hand side there was a toilet and on the left hand side there was a large shower area. There was a great selection of amenities including shower cap, sewing kit, comb, loofah etc in addition to shampoo, conditioner and shower gel.
Wifi was included for free and it worked OK – the internet in general is not very fast on the island. It was annoying to have to keep on logging into the wifi zone all the time.
The private pool in the front was great for a dip but there was also a large pool basically on the beach. Around this pool there were lots of sunbeds and chairs and it was also a great spot for watching the sun set at night. The beach itself is a bit of a mystery – there is a huge difference in low tide and high tide. At high tide the beach was beautiful with some waves and larger waves crashing in on the reef further out. At low tide the beach was not very appealing as a lot of the seabed was exposed.
The service at the lobby (and the hotel in general) was great – even if they didn’t have a laundry service and a form at the hotel they sent the clothing out to be washed at a nearby laundry and it was very cheap. When we asked if they had recommendation on where to rent a motorcycle they could inform us that we could rent it from the security guards by the entrance – at standard price (100.000 Rupiah per day). When we said that we had problems with the lock on the door they fixed it and they also helped us book restaurants at night.
Breakfast at hotel was good – it was a combination of ordering food from a menu (American style, Korean style etc) and it was also possible to just get some eggs made to your preference at the egg station or help yourself from a small buffet that included some cereal, bread, coffee, juice etc.
The location of the hotel is good. It is located right on the main beach on Lembongan and only about 500 meters away from where e.g. Scoot boats come in. There are restaurants and small shops in the area and you can walk on the beach to get around or go to the main “road” to get to your place.
We enjoyed our stay the Lembongan Beach Club & Resort. The villa was great with a good modern setup and it was awesome with a private pool. In addition to this the staff was friendly; service minded and help us organize dinners, snorkeling trips, motorcycles etc. We did not feel that we got the same out of our stay at Batu Karang. So if I were to return to Lambongan I would probably choose to stay at the Lembongan Beach Club & Resort again.
