After the first stay in Lombok at Jeeva Klui Resort close to Senggigi, we followed to South, heading to Cocotinos Sekotong in the Southwest coast of Lombok, one hour from the international airport.
It’s an amazing luxury resort, with just 36 rooms/bungalows, located in a very quiet part of Lombok, far from the noise and the crowds. Arriving there was less than 2h driving from Senggigi/Mataram. We selected one of their best rooms on this resort for totally relaxing time and extravagance: their famous Water Edge Villa, with Private Infinity Pool, right in front of the beach for total relaxation. This is my recommendation, save some money and treat yourself by booking this room! You won’t regret!
It’s a small resort, very very peacefull and calm, and with almost nothing around. It’s great if you want to relax and stay away from the noise, but be aware if you are a busy person you will get bored after the third night. So here, I can recommend a stay no longer than 2/3 nights, unless you are ok by litteraly doing nothing.
You can always make some explorations around the resort, rent a motor bike or dive (they have a great diving center / sports center) for this kind of activities, and also visit the 3 small and unknown coconut islands of Gili Nanggu, Gili Tangkong and Gili Sudak, right in front of the resort. They have rooms starting at 89USD up to 325EUR for the most luxury rooms.
We were also afraid that having nothing around to go eating, the prices could be very expensive for meals, but that’s not true here. A coke has a cost of 34.000IDR and a beer 46.000 IDR, something between 2 to 3 EURO.
