We stayed here for 2 nights. We had been travelling around Indonesia, utilising budget accommodation and decided to splurge for a couple of nights. This was the most expensive accommodation for the trip.
Siti was very helpful, including picking us up from our previous hotel.
The villa itself was very nice, but there were a few minor maintenance items that needed to be done. There were loose tiles on the pool and light switches coming of the walls. Overall good accommodation. The outside stereo had been damaged by the previous guest, but hadn't been replaced for our stay.
The warungs on the street provided fresh seafood at very low prices. We had a very nice lunch from one of these. They are very basic, which would scare off some people. There aren't any restaurants within walking distance, apart from the basic one at the villas. We headed out one night to a restaurant back towards Senggigi. We were waiting on the road for a taxi, when we were offered the spare car from the villas, to borrow. I thought this was very generous and gratefully accepted. When the final bill came, we had been charged 150k IDR to hire the car. Bit disappointed, as this was never mentioned, with the offer to borrow the car, and taxis would have only cost around 60k IDR for the night.
Overall good accommodation, in a really nice area, with a gracious host, subject to a few minor items that could have been done better.
A huge thank you to Siti and the girls for a lovely warm and welcome stay at nipah private villa. Beautiful 2 bedroom villa with large and very comfortable bedrooms, amazing roof terrace were my husband and I enjoyed breakfast each morning - fabulous views. Lovely pool and relaxing area out front, gardens and surroundings were absolutely beautiful and so well kept. We visited some great places of interest while in Lombok. Elephant park, waterfalls, temples and villages, Kuta in the south as well as all 3 Gili Islands which was all kindly arranged by Siti the owner. Would truly recommend staying at nipah villa if your planning on visiting Lombok.
We have been there for a short escape from the busy life we are having in the gilis, and to celebrate a birthday.
Place is quiet, beautiful, comfortable and very clean.
The hosts are so generous and super friendly.
The location is also very nice away of Sengigi and Bangsal but so close if you rent a motorbike.
This place was the great spot for me to make my proposal !
We stayed here in June and July 2017 and we can't rate it high enough. It's certainly got the wow factor The villa is beautiful it's very private and you really do feel like you have your own bit of paradise. Siti is a wonderful host and nothing is to much trouble, siti helped us book trips and days out. She really is a a star and helped us make the most of our holiday. My family loved every second of our stay and can't wait to go back time and time again. Oh and big plus for my teenagers is that the wifi is brilliant. The beach is a 5 min walk and it's one of the most beautiful peaceful beaches in Lombok. We love Lombok really is a paradise island ☀️ A perfect haven for my family can't wait to stay at Nipah Villas again next year ☀️
We really enjoyed our stay here and wished we could have stayed longer. We have a 14y/o son and an 11 y/o daughter and they absolutely loved having their own private pool...with its own sound system! There are huge speakers next to the pool that can be linked to your devices by bluetooth, so the kids felt like they were having their own pool party
That was another great aspect of staying here. The kids could be kids in the pool. We've stayed at resorts before where you worry about the kids disturbing other guests. Not here.
The bedrooms were excellent and both had a sliding glass door to the pool. Our kids shared one and my wife and I had the other. Both had private showers. We felt that the one on the right had slightly better water pressure.
We also liked having the roof as a covered dining area. My daughter spent a lot of time reading here, and we had several meals there, including takeout from the nearby nasi goreng shop.
Across the street are a number of grilled fish places, and a short walk from there is a local beach with more local restaurants. You need a scooter or a taxi to get to a more touristy area (and more food options), but we preferred to stay at the villa. We barely left the entire time.
One item worth noting: the wifi is quite good for Lombok standards. In fact, it was some of the best we had on the entire island (we stayed many places). That said, don't expect super-fast speeds. Also, for some reason, we had to sign in every time we used it on our phones. Laptops were ok. Compared to most of the internet we had in Lombok, however, this was some of the best and pretty reliable.
At the time we were there, they were building more villas, which looked good as well.
