Lombok is famed among locals for its pristine beaches, fantastic dive and surfing spots as well as being free from tourist traffic. With the pretty, vehicle-free Gili Islands just off Lombok’s western coast, you’ll find the order of the day to begin and end with water sports, with a cycle round the picturesque island somewhere in between. Perfect for a secluded, serene trip, Lombok offers the perks of Bali without the crowds and sky-high prices.
Experience the best the island as to offer at Puri Mas Lombok. Once a family residence for a member of the royal family, its rich heritage stands strong through its architecture, sculpted archways and manicured tropical gardens. Now an adult-only beach resort, it still exudes an air of refined grandeur. The resort also has several awards, including TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence and awards from Conde Nast Traveller and Hotel Luxury Awards.
Days at the resort are spent lounging in the generously sized rooms and villas, or by the infinity pool that stretches towards the sea. The resort also boasts a yoga garden, an art gallery and plenty of dining options. Guests can also take a quick transfer to the nearby Puri Mas Spa Resort for some soothing treatments, take introductory diving courses in the pool from in-house master divers, or even private ballroom dancing lessons.
How to Get There
We have just arrived home from the Puri Mas after spending 8 amazing nights there. The hotel is absolutely fantastic and there is nothing negative we can say. From the moment we arrived we instantly relaxed and felt at home. The grounds are beautiful and there is so much to look at with all the hidden antiquities. We upgraded to a Jacuzzi room as it was my 50th birthday and it was well worth it, despite the water being a little too cold. The breakfast was great and we ate our evening meal in the Ballroom resteraunt every night apart from the 2 evenings we were chauffeured to the White Elephant resteraunt at the Puri Mas spa. We had both option 1 and 2 menus which was the best food we have ever had...plus birthday cake !!! The biggest mention must go to every single member of staff who works at the Puri Mas. From the gardeners, security, housekeeping and every single waiter we encountered, the staff were happy, smiling and greeted you every morning with enthusiasm and massive smiles. I used the treadmill most mornings and the hardest part of my run was waving back to all the greetings I received ! It is very rare in the hospitality industry to feel that every single member of a hotels staff actually love their jobs and this positive attitude was reflected in the whole, fantastic experience of staying at the Puri Mas. How this hotel isnt a 5 star i dont know...thank you to you all.
We spent a magical 3 nights at Puri Mas! It is an extraordinary place. We tagged 3 days on to our trip just so we could stay here. We stayed in a Quirky Garden Room with outdoor bathroom and it was lovely. Next tome we’ll book a pool villa (we’re already planning our return). The facilities are first class. The pool area and bar are amazing and the perfect spot to watch the sunset from (which were some of the best we’ve ever seen)! Located right on the beach means sunset walks are a must. The Ballroom Restaurant was very nice. The staff were outstanding. They could not do enough for us and were so very helpful. Our only regret is we could not stay longer. We will definitely go back. Lombok is an amazingly beautiful place!

After five weeks of island hopping it was so relaxing to spend five days at Puri Mas. It is a beautiful setting, very well maintained, with an excellent, attentive staff, and a restaurant with sunset views of Bali. I wouldn't change a thing about it. The gardens are lovely and well-tended, rooms give a nice sense of privacy yet you're never more than a few steps from the restaurant, poolside bar or other amenities.
Whenever we had a special request for assistance, advice or transportation, the staff was most helpful.
I certainly recommend Puri Mas to anyone who appreciates pleasant surroundings and excellent service.
