Pondok Santi Estate is the ultimate getaway retreat featuring twelve 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 several day beds around the pool, on our beach and on the grounds, 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 breakfast, 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.

I stayed on my own at Pondok Santi for 2 nights, and had an absolutely fabulous stay there. Firstly, all of the staff are so friendly and welcoming, and they can’t do enough for you, making you feel right at home. The grounds are beautifully kept, and my villa was exceptional. The Villa had everything you needed and it was so comfortable. I loved the outdoor bathroom, and the garden area. Then there’s the beach, which is a little slice of paradise. Each day I even saw the sea turtles coming to the surface for air…beautiful!

Amazing!! Hotel has only 18 villas, so you don’t hear or see anybody. Food, service and infrastructure are great. Stayed in villa with pool, just perfect. Best massage ever!! Wine list limited but good wines. Beach is just a few steps from the villa, hotel pool has a great view and a pool bar.

The friendliest staff with big smiles and great service. Lots of attention to detail and the presentation is first class making it the best place to stay on the island. Try the sunset cruise and snorkelling your which is amazing. Lots of coral and the underwater statues are well worth a visit. The beach club is also the best place for breakfast and dining throughout the day. We saw turtles every morning!

Stayed in the older palm view bungalow close to the road and beach, could hear the waves crashing at night. The outdoor shower isn't for everyone but my wife and I loved it. The staff are awesome and the food is great, best pizza on the island, location is great too but nowhere on Gilli T is too far away. One of best assets of the place is the grounds and green space feels very opulent and the price we paid was very reasonable. Highly recommend this place if you want to relax and enjoy the vibes of the island

Thanks to Pak Yadi and the team at Pondok Santi we had a super relaxing holiday. Favourite part was breakfast on the white sand beach, second favourite was the peaceful view from our balcony across the coconut lawn. Food and coffee was great, rooms were clean and very pretty. Appreciate the eco-friendly approach (bamboo straws, refillable water, shopping bag). Airport transfers were smooth and fuss free and PS organised bikes for us so we could get to and from our dive shop. Only regret was having to leave.
