Lombok : Flight Ticket & Accommodation

Flight Ticket
First things first, the flight ticket. Always be on the look for AirAsia sale! Currently, only AirAsia has direct flights from KL to Lombok. Though, with AirAsia to score the cheap flight tickets usually you have to buy the tickets well in advance [1 year or less]. The usual return ticket price would be around RM400. 

My experience; 
2016 : RM103 (return)
2018 : RM280 (return)


Accommodation 
Ombak Sunset Hotel, Gili Trawangan [2016]
Booked the deluxe terrace room for RM5++ (3D2N). Normal price would be around RM7++. This hotel is famous for their swing [practically everyone take a picture here when in Gili Trawangan].

Pros
  • Super spacious room
  • Big swimming pool
  • Nice architecture
Cons
  • The floor was slimy
  • Low water pressure
  • AC not working well (we were sweating through the first half of the night)
  • Food was so-so
  • Quite a distance from the night market + snorkeling point. Imagine having to cycle to get your dinner in the dark (some of the road have no street lights whatsoever).


The famous swing

Verdict : I would not recommend this place because it's soooo far from the night market, and you can get better hotel at this price point.

Rating : 2.5/5


PinkCoco, Gili Trawangan [2018]
Fell in love with the hotel since the first time I saw it online. The reviews were amazing! [9.4 rating on Booking.com].

How cute is the swing?
Pros
  • Very attentive staffs
  • Provide padded bicycles [important!]
  • Nice architecture, beautiful room
  • Amazing massage parlour [with 50% discounts for patron]
  • Great breakfast food
  • They provide turndown services! [the staffs enter the room in the evening when you're not in, pull the blanket back, closed the curtain, dimmed the lights, put some chocolates oon the bed and light aromatherapy candle]
Cons
  • Can be quite a distance from the night market if you're walking. By bike, it's only 10-15 minutes ride
  • Not much selection for breakfast, no buffet only a la carte
Rating : 4.8/5


Grand Senggigi, Lombok [2016 & 2018]


From Booking.com

On both occasion, I only stayed at the hotel for one night [RM100/night].
Back in 2016, my tour guide recommended this hotel. It was spanking new, with comfortable bed.

This time around though, there are some issues. The first room assigned to us was festered with ants, the second room; issues with the AC and the final room can't be locked. 

Just skip this hotel, lots of affordable comfortable hotel around.
