ABSOLUTELY LEISURE AT HOLIDAY RESORT LOMBOK INDONESIA



ABSOLUTELY LEISURE AT HOLIDAY RESORT LOMBOK INDONESIA

Apt for our accommodation’s tagline “Absolutely leisure”, that is what we came for in Lombok, Indonesia.  After the island life at the Gili’s of Indonesia, we were set to explore the mainland of Lombok.

But with a resort nestled on a pristine beach in Mangsit Village amidst a tropical mountain and gardens spread in a hectare, exploration is cancelled as we simply lounge and loiter at the Holiday Resort Lombok Indonesia.

Notwithstanding the resort’s location which is a 5-minute drive to the Central of Senggigi as well as nearby shopping, dining and night life areas, we opted to stay within the vicinity of the hotel during our stay at Lombok.  This is one of the inevitable effects when staying at a good resort which provides the perfect comfort and leisure.

ROOMS

We settled at one of the Ocean View rooms situated at the second floor where the wooden flooring leading to our room provides a relaxing vibe for me.  Very laid back and refreshing.

It has all the basic room amenities with a twin bed providing the true definition of comfort.  I was able to rest well.

As soon as the sun sets, we were invited to have our dinner along the shores of Mangsit beach in one of the hotel’s in-house restaurant named Kayangan.

A candle-light dinner with the sounds of the waves heard would definitely make up a romantic dinner.  But we came in group and it was equally enjoyable.  This seafood and grill restaurant provides a relaxing ambiance, more so that we were entertained by resident musicians.  All requested songs were rendered even Filipino songs.  Christian Bautista’s songs were a constant favorite by Indonesians.  It was a indeed a good night.

Every Saturday night, the restaurant’s theme is a BBQ Night which is their specialty as well.  Being fond of anything skewered and grilled, we were fortunate to have sampled on the dishes.  And it was delectable.

Our complimentary breakfast was served at the Rinjani Restaurant.  It is situated at the lobby lounge and provides the best morning view reminding myself that this is indeed a vacation.  With clear skies, the famed Mount Agung comes in view.

The restaurant offers Asian cuisine and continental breakfast.  It is just a few steps from our room, making it homey.

AMENITIES

A huge swimming pool sits at the center of the resort surrounded by towering coconut trees and cottages depictive of a typical tropical island getaway.

There is a mini bar as well at the center of the swimming pool.  We were in time for the happy hour and we did place bottles of beer as order and directly swim afterwards.

Roaming around the vicinity, there are activities to choose from for recreation purposes.  We also passed by the sanctuary for turtle conservation.  Holiday Resort Lombok Turtle Center aims to protect sea turtle eggs, increase hatching rates, increase their chance of surviving and enabling them to strengthen before release.

The Mangsit Beach is the perfect place to chill in the afternoon after the day’s work under the shade of the aligned coconut trees at the sea shore.  The sand may not be as fine as that of Gili islands nor its waters crystal clear, but it surely has a unique sense of an absolute leisurely travel even made more possible by the luxury and comfort provided by Holiday Resort Lombok.
