Here are a few best hotels for families in Lombok.
- Sheraton Senggigi Beach Resort – Senggigi
A luxury and great location, this resort is a complete package with sublime shore and family-friendly facilities. Although the design of this three-level block of chambers can appear bland, it doesn’t feel overbuilt or muddy, but a few rooms are close to the major street. The ‘Deluxe beachfront’ rooms feature linking doors, a wooden floor, and many seats, but the balcony is smallish. Maybe more attractive to families is the two-bedroom ‘beachfront villas’ with having a private pool and separate baths. The beach is particularly enticing, although shady palms completely encircle the lagoon-shaped pool and decking. There’s no kids’ club. However, the kid’s pool does have a small water slide. The household can also utilize the floodlit tennis courts, enjoy water sports, and be involved in the resort’s turtle conservation and discharge program. Situated on Senggigi’s outskirts, the Sheraton is still within walking distance of numerous cafés/shops and the art market, however distant from nightclubs.
2. Kila Senggigi Beach – Senggigi
The standard rooms facing the ocean or even extensive gardens are practical. In contrast, the ‘garden bungalows’ provide more seclusion but face the noisy people shore – and these can all accommodate one extra kid. The adjacent Pool Villa Club includes two-story baths with immediate access to this extensive lagoon-style pool. The massive living/dining/kitchen area downstairs has a separate bathroom and is spacious enough for two-fold-up beds. Most of the beachfront is lined or rocky with fishing boats, but there are enough sea and sand for everybody and the pools, which are enormous. With apparently endless cafés and shops, the main road is a two-minute walk, even though the side-street to the resort is filled with loud nightclubs. Even the Bejalang Kids’ Club provides little more than a couple of balls, video games along with bicycles, and child-minding can be obtained.
3. Holiday Resort Lombok – near Senggigi
This is a Spacious Bali-style hotel with family-friendly comforts. It is only 10 minutes drive by cab from Senggigi. This resort is only one of very few on Lombok that actively promotes families and features a layout reminiscent of Bali. Like tropical gardens and a gigantic lagoon-shaped pool with ‘islands’. Some ‘sea view’ rooms have connecting doors. Still, all are crammed with funky art and furnishings, which detract significantly from the ambiance. Equally, inappropriate décor is found at the ‘garden chalets’ and ‘beach bungalows.’ However, the two-bedroom ‘family suites’ with separate bathrooms and a kitchenette are more conventional and practical. And beware of those more contemporary and less appealing rooms on the opposing side of this road that have traffic noise problems. Several activities are available, such as tennis, bike tours, and pony rides.
In contrast, the onsite dive center may also arrange water sports. The Sea World Kids’ Club, living area, and playground are all unsatisfactory. Still, child-minding is available as well as also the ‘family bundle’ rates are good value.
4. Novotel Lombok – Kuta
Kuta’s only large hotel is family-friendly but isolated (or secluded, based upon your preferences). The Novotel faces a perfect beach, with lots of room around the sand to get volleyball courts, lounge chairs, and lovely pools (including one for children). Each ‘patio area’ is very comfortable, with a modern bath, plus some have connecting doors. At the same time, family rooms contain two bedrooms, each with an attached bath. The appealing villas are almost ‘stone age’ in layout, and a few have a private pool. The hotel provides a tempting variety of household activities, such as cooking courses and horse riding.
In contrast, many others are free, e.g., aqua aerobics and visiting your traditional village. Kids would also relish the monkey feeding, kite-flying, living room, and organized shore activities. At the same time, parents could love the family movie nights in the sand.
5. Kies Villas – Kuta
This villa is secluded, comfy, and comfortable, with a countryside sense. Just one resort in Kuta (the Novotel) is well set up for families. Still, Kies is your next best option, especially for teenagers. The reasons are enormous, with swinging hammocks and thatched huts, along with both pools, are sizable. The rooms are all spacious, with beautiful furniture, tiled flooring, sliding doors opening to the pool, and doors. Villas contain two bedrooms, a kitchen, and a private pool. Although the two-level’ exotic bungalows’ include a downstairs living/kitchen room large enough to fit two beds. The staff could populate family tasks, for example, surf classes and other sports, as well as bicycle rental and guided hikes. While a little isolated – 10 minutes on foot from shops/cafés and another 10 minutes to the shore — it will boast a delightful rural vibe.
