Hotel Tugu Lombok
How to Get There
My stay at Tugu was out-of-this-world magical and probably the most memorable of my life; and I'm an avid world traveler, having stayed at the finest resorts around the world.
A perfect luxury private get away for couples or solos. I had originally planned to go to Bali but I chose Lombok for its proximity to Gili. I'm so glad I did! The hotel boat ride was just 15 min to Gili (vs 2+ hours from Bali) and I spent the day snorkeling around the bluest waters seeing the most colorful fish, followed by a bike ride around the island (where they sell mushroom shakes, just saying!).
The hotel also offers at no cost to guests snorkeling gear and kayaks for you to paddle out ~500m to a buoy where you can swim all around and see the most spectacular coral & fish whenever you want! It was less than 30 steps from my bed to the kayak! The area around the hotel isn't commercial so while you are swimming you really get the sense that it's just you and the sea and the critters below!
I booked the Bhagavadgita Suite - the pictures on the website don't do it justice. The ceilings were 20+ft high, the gorgeously carved four poster bed was gigantic, so comfy, and overlooked the sea. I had my own koi pond and the outdoor rock bath tub really provided some great energy under the starry sky. A small private pool overlooked the sea was perfect for dipping after swimming in the sea. The room had all the comforts - I never wanted to leave! The decor is jaw dropping in its intricate beauty. The entire resort is a feast for the eyes and soul.
The service is impecable by any standard, truly friendly & helpful staff. It is a green resort, so they provide water in glass bottles - no plastic in sight! And the food was so divinely delicious, they catered to my vegan diet perfectly! The smoothie bowls were a great way to start the day, and the vegetable green curry was the best I've ever had, and I've lived in Asia for 8 years and frequent Bangkok often! The vegan cake they made for my bday was also the most delicious I've ever had! Pure magic!
My only complaint is that I'm now completely spoiled for any other trip I will go on!
Went there just for the weekend while in a business trip in Jakarta. The hotel overall was excellent, food, service, room and facilities. We booked a boat for a day and went to Gilli Islands. Next day we book a driver through the hotel and went to a nearby antique shop. Everybody was very helpful at the hotel. The also arrange a pickup service from the airport. Our flight was delayed by almost 3 hrs so we landed in Lombok around midnight. The driver waited for us, no problem and our rooms were ready by the time we got to the hotel. They even left a sandwich and fruits at the rooms just in case we were hungry. Highly recommended if you want to stay away from the beaten path.

We just enjoyed a fantastic week long holiday at Tugu Hotel. The hotel has exceeded our expectation on a 5-star resort hotel. The hotel is beautifully decorated with modern luxury and comfort infused in traditional Indonesian style. All staffs have taken hospitality to a higher standard. We’ve been always greeted by our names and a nice smile. I needed to find small gifts for my son’s birthday. The hotel manager Hanny has gone shopping for me during her time off and bought the perfect gifts for me son. The drinks and food are excellent. We’ve pretty much sampled every different type of food and cocktails on the menu. Never once were we disappointed. I still vividly remember the yummy breakfast bowls!! It is definitely a hotel I will recommend. We will definitely like to stay again at a Tugu hotel in one of its 4 locations.
