To Jean Paul, Nury and staff. Thank you immensely for your hospitality, sincerity and dedication. The four of us had a fantastic time; for 2 of our party it was their first time overseas and an unforgettable experience. We ourselves have travelled extensively and stayed in accommodation of all types from 6 stars to 3 stars. For us, The Puncak rates as one of our best of all time.
I feel the Puncak is a boutique and niche residence that offers seclusion and service that is difficult to match in other locations for the price of your stay. I feel that JP, Nury and the staff have created a discerning niche; while it may not appeal to some it will certainly appeal to the vast majority looking for that little extra something: special and personal.
The sunsets are brilliant. The ambience of sitting in an infinity pool with a cool drink in hand looking out over the ocean is fantastic. Waking up in the morning with a view at the top of the world is difficult to match. It is quiet, the staff are omnipresent while being unobtrusive- a rather difficult balance to achieve normally.
The food: we thought the breakfasts were the perfect match. A variety of hot, cold, savoury, local, international: a little of each all in the same spread. If you consumed all of what was presented each morning it was more than enough. We struggled to do so. Please note this is not a buffet; it is your own personalised and individualised breakfast on your own little terrace in front of your room. We ate in several times and thought the food was great, particular when you consider this is not a modern country or island. Do you need to order a few hours in advance- “yes”. They accommodate a maximum of 10 people and rely on fresh produce, so I understand the need to do so.
It is always interesting to read others comments; however, any experience is extremely individual and interpretational. I noted discussion about JP and Nury’s daughter. We never found her to be noisy, then again we have children and expect and understand that they are energetic; all part of being a child. For example, on our first night in Lombok our luggage was lost in transit and did not arrive until 10pm at night (9 hours later). JP and Nury spent 4 hours on constant phone calls tracking down our luggage to ensure it did arrive; we had failed to even make contact with the airline during the day. The last hour or so of this their daughter was asleep on the couch at reception as her parents were focused on assisting us while we enjoyed the hospitality. To us that is above and beyond, and we thank them immensely for assisting us while taking time out from their private life.
I also read about the dogs. It was explained to us when we arrived that they are there for the protection of us, which is fine with me. We never experienced them running around; in fact, when they were off the lead they were under control.
JP and Nury- we feel you have achieved what you set out to: a little piece of paradise in harmony with its location. If you would like to experience this please visit, if you are looking for a resort then it would probably pay to visit one.
