Beside the resort being perfect the staff and managers were amazing. I will definitely be recommending and going back here. Its in the perfect location just at the end of the path where all the main bars are. I recommend checking to the surf bar which is a 3 min walk from the resort.

We booked the private pool villa, and it's the best decision we've made. The room is spacious, and the decor is stunning. Every evening the staff will personally reset your room to be mosquito free, since you really cannot avoid them in nature. They are close to the center of the island, yet far enough so you don't hear the...

We have spent a wonderful three days at Pondok Santi. It is ideally situated away, but not far, from the strip. The pool villa is spacious, tastefully furnished and lovely. The food and drinks are excellent and quite reasonably priced given the high quality. It also has a very nice beach directly in front. Guests have access to water sports...

Pondok Santi is a dream come true. We had a superb time in this beautiful place. It is located in an unparalleled setting, close to the island's center action yet very quiet, (and just a stroll away from the legendary sunset point), outstanding service, amazingly helpful and cheerful staff, and delicious food. Expect excellence in all details- from the fine...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pondok Santi Estate is the ultimate getaway retreat featuring ten beautiful bungalows set in lawned grounds on an ancient coconut plantation. Each traditional bungalow has a beautiful open-air bathroom, safe, air conditioner, mini bar, fan, lovely front terrace and day bed overlooking the manicured grounds. Private Pool Bungalows also include their own plunge pools, sun lounges and king size outdoor daybed. There are 10 beruga palm-thatched day beds in the grounds and along our private beach, which are the perfect place to chill out, sleep or read. During the day, get together around the large 25m central pool where snacks and cold drinks can be ordered, listen to music or just relax on the sun lounges. The resort offers a boutique restaurant, which is open for lunch and dinner while the main beachfront strip starts just 400m away with dive shops, restaurants, and beach bars, so you're never short of somewhere to eat. Cooling white stone paths link the areas of the estate, and coconut palms provide welcome shade in the heat of the day. In fact, everything has been designed to make sure your stay is comfortable and hassle-free. The island, with its coral reefs, is a favorite destination for divers, and one of the best dive spots is right outside Pondok Santi. There are plenty of dive shops on the beachfront where you can hire equipment, and arrange a boat trip. You don't need a boat for snorkelling as there's plenty of colorful coral and marine life to discover from the beachfront, including turtles, clown fish and many more! If surfing is your thing Pondok Santi is the perfect place, with a surf break right off the beach. For a couple of hours either side of high tide, you can paddle out and enjoy the waves. Most days and evenings 'Princess Margaux', the resorts luxurious traditional outrigger is available for sunset and snorkeling cruises, the boat can also be hired privately for island hopping adventures throughout the day. The island also offers riding and kayaking, and there are numerous spas on the island, where you can enjoy facials, massage and other beauty treatments. Lombok is just 20 minutes way by boat - a great destination for a game of golf, exploring the markets or a hike up Mt Rinjani. ... more   less
