Villa Kura Kura
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Nestled in a small coconut grove, just metres from the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, Villa Kura kura is a new holiday Villa, completed in 2011. The Villa has been built in a tropical style but with the luxuries of modern living , air conditioning, multi language satellite TV,DVD player etc and 3 double en-suite bedrooms ,all with sea views
The villa has a huge first floor decking area with bifold doors to the living area, and master bedroom, providing an open plan layout
Set back from the sea, across the single track coastal road to Banko Banko, the Villa offers a feel of the real Lombok. The deck is the perfect place to enjoy al fresco dining, to take advantage of the magnificent views of the offshore islands, or to watch the friendly locals going about their business
As a contrast, the large well designed freshwater swimming pool , set back in the gardens, offers a haven of peace and quiet, with two shady thatched Barugas to read a book or enjoy a cool drink
As with all developing countries, there can be power cuts, the staff kitchens may not always have everything on the menu, and there may be delays or other hiccups, but as a base to experience this as yet undeveloped corner of Lombok, it offers real value for money
The villa is one of three privately owned Villas located on this beautiful cove.
The Villa has the basics of Microwave,fridge,water cooler,toaster,sandwich toaster, Grill etc, as the staff operate from a separate staff kitchens, where a wide range meals can be prepared and brought to the Villa by the friendly housekeeping staff and examples of the Menu, with both Local and Western style dishes available at reasonable prices are available
The ideal holiday location, with snorkelling, surfing and diving all nearby
and a car with driver on hand for excursions to Senggigi, Mount Rinjani,the Monkey Forest and the local craft villages.

The Bali/Lesser Sunda Islands region
The beautiful island of Lombok is not as well known as its sister island of Bali, but if anything its spectacular volcanic scenery and beautiful beaches more than make up for anything it may lack in commercial development
The appeal of Lombok is its lack of commercialisation and development, but as with many areas off the busy tourist track, this natural unspoilt paradise can have occasional infrastructure problems such as power cuts, however Villa Kura Kura has a back up generator to try and minimise any inconvenience
Villa Kura Kura is located on the unspoilt southwest peninsula.
Found on the scenic coastal road, just minutes from the world famous surfing beach of desert point, known locally as Banko Banko, the Villa provides an opportunity to experience the real Lombok, away from commercial development, with friendly locals always eager to say hello
There a numerous small islands just a few minutes from the Villa, all easily reached by the Villas own boat, and the local snorkelling is spectacular.
The villa also has booking arrangements with a local dive school, locate about 100 metres along the Beach

"Health and safety issues, very disappointing"
First let me say I hesitated to write this review. I do not often write reviews unless there were truly exceptional - generally positive - reasons for it. This is my first negative review. I use TA c… More
We are sorry that you were unhappy with your stay and decided to leave after 2 nights, as you experienced problems with the ceiling panels in one room, which has now been fully rectified.
Unfortunately we were unable to agree to your demand to a refund of more than double your original rental fee, but felt that our actions in immediately refunding your booking fee in full, as soon as we were aware of the ceiling problems was reasonable, as well as our goodwill gesture of refunding payments for all the meals you had purchased from the neighbouring villa complex. We also arranged to pay for the additional transfers, when you decided to leave, but feel we must respond to some of the comments that were made.
The Villa does not have electrical problems, but as with the rest of Lombok, and other developing areas it can suffer from power cuts - As mentioned in the advertised listing
Although the tide does come in, in front of the Villa, there is swimming from the sandy beach 200 metres to the left, rather than the 45 minutes walk you suggest, as well as great snorkelling - if only you had asked the staff
Because the Villa is located in the unspoilt South West corner of Lombok, away from the commercialised tourist area`s, it is not really possible to offer a self catering option, therefore the villa has limited cooking facilities, but has a microwave, free standing fridge freezer, toaster, and jaffle maker for snacks etc,but main meals are offered by the neighbouring villa complex, again clearly mentioned and advertised on the website.
We are sorry that you were unhappy with the variety of meals available, although the menu does have over 40 different main courses on offer
The website does clearly advise and show that the villa is set back from the coastal road to Banko Banko. This is a single track road and is not a HIGHWAY,but has a variety of local traffic, from pick ups, to horse and carts, and children riding bicycles on their way to school.
We have never experienced any disruption and certainly not to a level where we were unable to hold a conversation- to the contrary, we have found that any traffic that does pass by provides a colourful insight to the local way of life as well as adding variety and an alternative to the magnificent ocean views- your comments to us that you were unhappy with the locals trying to say hello to you does indicate that, perhaps this was not the best choice of destination for your particular requirements, and hope you will have better luck in the future

Thanks for your review, we`re really glad you liked the Villa and the Amazing views, and pleased to hear that you would recommend it to your best friend !
You`re right that as the villa has only just been completed, the gardens are not yet established, but as you say this will come in time.
As the Villa has only been open for a few months, we really appreciate any constructive comments, and will address all your concerns about the Mosquito nets etc, and will try and find a faster toaster !
