Lombok’s charm rests upon the fact that it’s still mostly untouched. It is far more relaxed than the party island of Bali. The beaches here, especially in the South, are beautiful. There are plenty of waterfalls you can trek to and swim in, the imposing Rinjani Volcano to conquer and the three Gili Islands where you can let your hair down. Lombok has some great culinary options, check it here.
To help you find your feet on the island we made a list of the best hotels on Lombok. It took a few hours, but we’ve hunted for the best choices for every budget (though we excluded hotels on the GIli Islands). You can find our three favorite hotels below. Let’s get started.
We’ve provided the starting price for each hotel for guidance, but it might be different for your travel date.
DYI Best Budget Hotel in Lombok
Satu Lingkung from $15 a Night
Satu Lingkung is a beautiful bungalow with stunning views of the mountains and rice terraces. The hosts are very welcoming and the people in the village area are also very warm-hearted. The food is exceptional, with traditional Indonesian dishes prepared with fresh local ingredients. Satu Lingkung is a great option for travelers looking for a unique and authentic experience of Lombok.
DYI Best Mid Range Hotel in Lombok
Ibludan Hotel from $73 a Night
The Ibludan Hotel is our pick for the best mid-range hotel in Lombok. It’s in Sengiggi to the North of Lombok. The hotel has a nice open plan layout with a large swimming pool. Rooms are tastefully decorated (some of the rooms have a kitchen, just in case you want to cook). Guests compliment the great staff that make you feel at home, the rooms that are spotlessly clean (one reviewer went as far as saying “you could eat off the floor,” though we don’t advise it) and the delicious food. Highly recommended.
DYI Best Luxury Hotel in Lombok
Hotel Tugu Lombok from $161 a Night
Tugu is one of my favorite hotel chains in Indonesia. The hotel in Lombok is amazing (though it does feel like you’re heading the wrong way as you drive down the dirt track that leads to the hotel). It feels like you are walking through a museum when you visit. The property is decorated with beautiful antique furniture. There are so many good things to say about the hotel. It is probably one of my favorite hotels in Indonesia. As one guest said, “the atmosphere is luxurious without being pretentious”.

Recommended Mid-Range Hotels in Lombok
Pondok Anggrek Putih from $18 a Night
Pondok Anggrek Putih is one of the best mid-range hotels in Sengiggi. The hotel is set in large grounds with a beautiful garden, two gazebos and a large swimming pool. The hotel is open planned. Rooms are large, spacious and tastefully decorated. Previous guests compliment the chef for the great food and the comfortable stay. Definitely recommended for honeymooners or couples who want a quiet place to stay. The only critical feedback is the breakfast is a bit small and the location is very quiet.
Silver Fern Beach Retreat from $27 a Night
Silver Fern Beach Retreat is in the Sekotong island chain. As the name suggests the hotel, which has its own pool, overlooks the ocean. The hotel looks modern, and not very Indonesian, with spacious air-conditioned rooms. Guests compliment the friendly staff, nice hosts and relaxing atmosphere. The food at the restaurant is tasty, but the restaurant is a little expensive. Highly recommended if you just want to get away from it all for a few days.
Dome Lombok from $53 a Night
Dome Lombok is a stylish hillside hotel with a quiet and chill atmosphere. The staff are incredibly communicative and helpful, and can assist with finding a scooter to explore the island. The rooms are unique, giving a retreat vibe, and offer amazing views over the bays. The sunset from the roof terrace is particularly stunning.
Puri Mas Boutique Resort & Spa from $55 a Night
Set next to the beach with an infinity pool overlooking the ocean, Puri Mas Boutique Villa and Spa is one of the best mid-range hotels in Lombok. The hotel is relatively small with 39 beautifully furnished rooms and villas. Reviews on Agoda compliment the beautiful setting of the hotel, surrounded by a lush forest and gardens, and the attentive staff. Unfortunately it’s very difficult to swim in the ocean, because of the shallow reefs. Overall a great choice if you are looking for a place to stay in Lombok.
Recommended Luxury Hotels in Lombok
Katamaran Resort from $93 a Night
The Katamaran Resort is a top choice if you’re looking for a 5 star hotel in Lombok. Located in Sengiggi, the hotel has an open plan design with a great beachside swimming pool with wooden decking where you can relax on a sun lounger. Rooms at the hotel are all new and nicely furnished. Guests compliment the friendly staff and the beautiful setting. The hotel has some funny check in requirements though, including the fact you need to pay an Rp 250,000 a day security in case you break anything. Food and drinks at the resort are also expensive.
Sudamala Suites and Villas from $79 a Night
The Sudamala Suites and Villas in Sengiggi is a luxury beachside retreat. The resort has an outdoor pool, bar, restaurant and spa. Rooms at the resort range from suites through to private villas. Guests compliment the great service, delicious food and the relaxing setting. One downside is that there is no gym, something that many would expect from a 5 star resort.
Pool Villa Club Lombok from $121 a Night
The Pool Villas Club Lombok is in the heart of Sengiggi, abutting the beach. Set in a huge garden with a large pool you feel cocooned from the outside world (perfect feeling when you just want to recharge your batteries). Reviews on Agoda highlight the great service and beautiful setting. The complimentary afternoon tea and cakes are also appreciated. On the down side some guests complain about mosquitoes, which can keep you up at night.
The Oberoi Lombok from $165 a Night
The Oberoi Lombok is one of the best hotels in Lombok. The resort has an outdoor pool, a gym, a spa, a tennis court, and all rooms and watersports can be arranged from the Oberoi Beach Club. Guests compliment the beautiful location, cleanliness of the rooms and the staff. The food at the restaurant is a bit expensive and there is not much to do around the hotel, but if you’re looking for a relaxing beachside holiday then the Oberoi Lombok is perfect for your needs.
Special Mention – The Lombok Lodge from $360 a Night
The Lombok Lodge is probably the best hotel in Lombok with a price tag to boot. The hotel is small with just 9 rooms and suites set in beautiful grounds. All the lodges have sea views and open-air baths, there’s an outdoor pool, a spa, a gym, and private yoga lessons over the wooden deck by the sea. Service is exceptional and the food is delicious.
