This is not the Hilton nor does it profess to be. I come to Sumbawa for work at PT AMNT and we mostly stay at the Tropical. It sure beats the Mine camp.Rooms are tidy and comfortable and staff are warm and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Food is good in the dining area overlooking the beach and...

Really a paradise for surfing with incredible waves around and in a front of the resort. But Guys, go away! Beautiful location but Over-priced, old, manager needs to find an other job or open a surfschool, OK! But not real hosters and not pro. One of them forgot to book our return flight...result is 14 hours from Sumbawa to Bali....

Your return ticket was booked the day before. But that is insignificant as you took exactly the same time from the resort to Bali as any other client. We are not a travel agency nor do we own the airlines. We simply book and organise all transfers for clients so you dont have to deal with that sort of things....

I stayed with My Partner step son and a couple of his mates in June this year. We were first told of this resort by a family we met on previous trips to indonesia and had read mixed reports on trip advisor about this resort. We had an amazing stay! It's a little more expensive option than other properties in...

We visited Sumbawa for a family surfing holiday and thought to stay at the Nomad Resort. We do things on a whim so just turned up to check the resort and check the waves. We were greeted by rude staff who told us that we were not welcome because we were not guests. Not even if we might be guests...

Yes this is a common theme. People that can't afford staying at our resort, and stay at budget accommodations and then try to spend the day at our resort, swim in our swimming pool, use our toilets and showers, and internet. This would not be fair on the families that have paid 850 or 995 usd per adult for the...

I stayed there for 3 days because the hotel was only one option near to customer site. The best for this hotel is near to edge of beach, great view. Room is clean. Meal value is 3 of 5. Still thw price more expensive for kind of that hotel.

Thank you for your feedback. You are an Indonesian contractor that came for 3 days to work to the nearby Newmont Gold Mine. I know that this gets booked through Newmont and honestly dont know what sort of deals you get. But thank you anyways.
