Hotel Inspection at Vila Ombak, Gili Trawangan

Time for “work” after enjoying a nice buffet lunch by the pristine Gili Trawangan beach, as we had to do a hotel inspection of Vila Ombak. Well, there’s no free lunch in the world since we had our lunch at its seaside bar cum restaurant so it’s pay-back time. 😛

The first room we viewed was the Superior Lumbung Terrace, the lowest priced room here. At about S$110 per night, this is a spacious & cosy-looking room.

The bedroom & bathroom are about the same size!

Next, we went to the Traditional Lumbung Hut – a 2-storey traditional hut with an outdoor bathroom & an open area with a day bed. Suitable for a romantic getaway with your other half with the hut set within the lush gardens.

There was 1 type of room, or rather villa that was my favourite amongst the many room types shown. It was the 1-Bedroom Pool Villa, as it gave me a very private & exclusive feeling with its pretty interiors. The villa features a private pool (about 4 x 3 m) with deck chairs, a fully furnished spacious open-air living area, an indoor day bed that can be used to relax by day or fitted as an extra bed at night. Of course for such exclusivity it doesn’t come cheap, 1 luxurious night stay here costs at least S$570!

The 2 other rooms we checked out were the Deluxe Terrace Room & Deluxe Ombak Room which look somewhat similar to the Superior Terrace Room except for a larger size, so can skip the photos haha. The hotel occupies a large area hence the rooms are not cramped together with plenty of “breathing space”. The pools are pretty big too, looks relaxing to have a dip in there!

Not sure when will be my next trip to Lombok, but Vila Ombak does look like a resort hotel that I’d like to chill in, when it’s located near to the lovely beach with such cosy rooms. 🙂
