Lombok’s allure rests upon the fact that it’s still mostly untouched. It’s far more relaxed than the party island of Bali. The beaches, particularly in the South, are stunning. There are plenty of waterfalls, so you may trek to and float in, the imposing Rinjani Volcano to conquer as well as the three Gili Islands where you can let down your hair. To help you find your toes around the island, below is a list of the best hotels in Lombok. It took a few hours, but that list can be the best choices for each budget. You may find the most popular resorts below. Let’s get started. The recommendation provides the starting price for every resort for guidance, but it may be different for your trip date.
- Dream Catcher Camp (starts from $11 per night)
Dream Catcher Camp is our choice for the best budget hotel in Lombok. The homestay is in Tetebatu at the shadow of Mount Rinjani. The host is amiable and suitable for accommodating. The food is yummy, and the atmosphere will make you feel like you’re living in a little village in Indonesia. Dream Catcher is in the highlands (not ideal if you’re hunting for a beach holiday).
- Ibludan Hotel (starts from $42 per day)
The Ibludan Hotel is the most lavish mid-range hotel in Lombok. It’s in Senggigi in the North of Lombok. The resort has a lovely open plan design with a vast swimming pool. Rooms are tastefully decorated (a few of the places have a kitchen, just in case you want to cook). Guests compliment the extraordinary team that makes you feel at home, the spotlessly clean chambers, along with the yummy food. It is highly recommended.
- Hotel Tugu Lombok (from $232 per night)
Tugu is among my preferred hotel chains in Indonesia. The hotel in Lombok is fantastic. It seems as if you’re walking through a museum once you see. The architecture of the property is decorated with beautiful antique furniture. There are many excellent things to say about the hotel. It can be one of the favourite hotels in Indonesia. The atmosphere is luxurious without being pretentious.
- Ike’s Hostel (from $10 a night)
Ike’s Hostel in Kuta, Lombok is one of the favourite budget hotels on the island. It’s an excellent place for backpackers and a simple place to satisfy fellow travellers. The highlight is friendly and accommodating employees and the delicious banana sandwiches. Unfortunately, the hotel is a bit out of the way (you will need a moped to get there), the wi-fi is hit, and miss and the water out of the shower is cold. Overall, outstanding value for money and a lovely spot to stay if you’re looking for a budget hotel in Lombok.
- Maharani Homestay (from $11 a night)
There are a lot of great budget hotels in Lombok to choose from. Most of the people almost chose Maharani Homestay as the favourite choice, since they prefer the beach over the highlands. Still, the service at Dream Catchers is better, and that is what their rating is. Maharani Homestay is a new, outstanding value for money, and the employees here serve a delicious breakfast (which is included in the accommodation fee). The team can be amiable. Word of warning, the rooms don’t have air conditioning, and it gets warm.
