Lombok is increasingly one of Indonesia’s most-visited tourist destinations. Its proximity to Bali, beautiful beaches and paradisaical islands had long made it a favourite of those in the know, but the secret is definitely out now.
Senggigi is Lombok’s tourist hub, and is renowned for the beauty of its sunsets over its west-facing beaches. These are among the most beautiful sunsets in Indonesia, second perhaps to Labuan Bajo in Flores. A well-developed tourist resort, Senggigi has a range of hotels to suit all budgets. Here are some of the best.
We’ve provided the starting price for each hotel for guidance, but it might be different for your travel date. Scroll through the images on the slider to preview the rooms and facilities.
