Novotel Lombok Resort and Villas

Welcome to meheartseoul humble blog, where I share my unforgettable sweet memories
Happy to spot one of the drivers holding my name when we walked out from Immigration and Customs Clearance. That's cleared our unnecessary worried as our room booking was made 1.5 months prior to our arrival..Somehow I was too busy and normally we never use airport pick up, so I forgot to email to reconfirm our arrival time. 

We bought prepaid SIM Cards with data plan from Telkomsel Simpati kiosk at the arrival area before heading to hotel. It took about 30 minutes ride from Lombok International Airport to Novotel Resort.

Hotel staffs greeted us with nice smiles and welcome us to Lombok and Novotel Resort. The bellboy quickly assisted us with our luggage and walked us to hotel lobby. Cold cocktail drinks were served at the receptionist lobby.

Our room was ready when we arrived around 11:30 am, 
allowing us to check-in on the spot!^^

Novotel Lombok - General Manager Mr Charles Choi | www.meheartseoul.blogspot.com
Kinda surprised when the General Manager personally appeared 
(suddenly pop-up beside me) at to the lobby to welcome us. 

Mr Choi not only friendly, but I can feel that he's also passionate about his job and hotel industry in Indonesia.

Novotel Lombok - Free Activities | www.meheartseoul.blogspot.com
 He recommended us to join hotel daily Free Activities.

I personally think that most of these programs are fun, and value added especially free tours to tourist attractions such as Tanjung Aan and Kuta Market Visit.

 Since we couldn't join Tanjung Aan beach tour as they just left, he suggested us 
to chill and relax on the 'Beluga', a roofed bamboo platform with day bed.

Complimentary 1 hour body massage  @In Balance Spa by Novotel.

When he found out that we'd very tight schedules and will be leaving early in the morning. He asked the receptionist to call the spa for allowing flexibility for us until 10 pm instead of 2 pm for complimentary massage.
  
We're truly grateful by his kind generosity. In fact he'd given us special room rate when he knew that I wanted to introduce beauty of Lombok to my blog readers. On top of that, he also upgraded us to  Garden Pool Villa with Sasak thatched roof.

Ups, forgot that they provided complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access. We walked to the lobby to get Wifi password suddenly the Guest Relationship Officer sitting in front of receptionist greeted me with smile: " What can I help you, Ms Vera?" 

Amazed! how could she know my name? Don't think I saw her when we check-in at the lobby. Not only that, she gave me a souvenir...

Woven Bracelet
 Unique bright color Woven Bracelet with my name! Thank you.
Vera in Novetel 'Wonderhotel' full of nice and cheerful surprises ^^

 Will definitely bring my family and stay here here for sure~!^^

Who said Kuta area has nothing? Check out next posting for beautiful Selong Belanak and pepper sand Tanjung Aan Beach.

For your information, if you're planning to go to Pink Beach, it's better to stay here as it's nearer compare to Senggigi area. I booked hotel earlier before arranged my itinerary, else we'll stay here 2 nights to save traveling time.
 
Thank you Novotel Lombok for pampering and treating us like royalties. | www.meheartseoul.blogspot.com
 Will post more about our awesome experiences at Novotel Lombok...

Thank you Novotel Lombok for pampering and treating us like royalties. We can't say thanks enough to Mr Choi and his team for exceptional experience. Extra mile services and thoughtful ensuring we had exclusive moments and making our stay a splendid one. Two thumbs up~!^^

Nothing to complaint, but my only suggestion would be servicing the room aircon as the temperature in the room was a bit warm. Maybe hot climate, tall roof and spacious room causing we didn't fee the cooling effect from the aircon.
