While searching for a place to go to for our family’s Christmas Holiday, I chanced upon this beautiful resort called Qunci Villas in Lombok, Indonesia from a friend’s facebook photo. and I was mesmerized with the beauty of the place.
Arriving at the place, I did not feel disappointed seeing how beautiful the hotel surroundings are. I immediately fell in-love with the open shower in our room. You can see the tree tops outside while you take the shower because half of the shower area is roofless. It reminded me so much of the batalan in the Philippine provinces. 🙂
All the art works in the resort are created by a collaboration of french and local artists. I super love them. We tried to visit the gallery where the art works came from but they close really early and they only sell huge wood carvings.
Our bedroom directly opens into a view of one of the swimming pools right in front of the sea. That huge mountain from across is in Bali. It’s quite famous and I had a pic with the view of it when I visited Bali but I forgot the mountain’s name.
They actually have three gorgeous infinity pools with salt in them, not chlorine, which is quite fortunate since I have just had my hair colored for the first time.
They also have two restaurants which serve really good food for quite a reasonable price.
The Christmas Dinner, though, was a bit of a scam. It was more expensive than usual but there was nothing so special about menu.
They also have a bar, which we would always visit before having dinner at the restaurant.
You could also order room service and dine in at your very own balcony, if you’re feeling lazy to go out.
The ambience is just so relaxing. They have lots of chaise lounges by the pool and even some beds to nap on while watching the huge waves from the sea. And also these bed areas can be converted into cozy nooks like this for romantic dinner dates:
And to complete the relaxation, they also have a spa. I had the facial and the full body massage.
Here are some more beautiful captures from around the resort:
I have totally enjoyed my Christmas Holiday, hope you all did too! 🙂
