Spanish-run Planet Nomadas Resort is set on Nusa Lembongan's northern coast, on the off-beach side of the road, but still with water views. They offer a half-dozen comfortable rooms accompanied by an excellent Spanish restaurant.

Around a year old when we stayed in mid-2016, Planet Nomadas has six rooms arranged in two longhouse-style setups facing onto a lawn. These are set behind the restaurant and bar, while a small pool and diveshop fronts onto the road. The resort doubles as a dive resort and the pool has been set up with divers in mind—it is deep—but as there is nothing shielding it from the road, this isn't the most private pool on the block. The upside is you can see beyond the pool to the ocean, and in the distance Bali; the downside is everyone passing by can see you.

The resort has a white recycled-wood feel, and the wooden floored rooms are similarly fitted out, with the spacious bathrooms having an exposed brick wall and semi-open hot water showers. As with much of Lembongan, the water is brackish. Rooms are simply furnished. Our bed was firm with decent linen and towels. We found the air-con in our room to be fine, but friends found theirs to never really cool down. There were sufficient plugs for charging our gear and shelf space to unpack on. The free WiFi worked haphazardly, which was a bit of a hassle as the 3G signal in this part of Lembongan is very poor. Adjoining rooms ideal for families are available.

Each of the two blocks of rooms shares a semi-divided balcony and despite us having some quite noisy neighbours, the room was comfortably quiet. Expect chickens and roosters in the morning.

The prime selling point of Planet Nomadas though is the restaurant. Sure, one doesn't come to Indonesia to eat Spanish tapas, but, well, why not? We found the food here to be very good, with generous servings and, for the standard, reasonable prices. Paella and sangria for dinner? Yes please! Service can be slow and a little mixed up at times, but we found it to be well worth the wait. Included breakfast is likewise very good. We liked the no-plastic touch throughout with water refills and iced jugs of water hitting the table whenever needed.

One last point: We booked Planet Nomadas via and due to a misunderstanding on how many beds were in the rooms, it looked like we wouldn't be able to stay. The co-founder, Tanausu, responded by jumping on his scooter and spending the next hour riding around the island in the midday heat trying to find us another room. By the time he returned, we'd tasted the food and there was no way we were leaving, but his efforts to try and sort us out with alternative lodgings was really beyond the call of duty. Bravo.

The resort is quite isolated from the rest of Lembongan, but there are beach bars to the south and simple warungs to the east that are within a 10- to 15-minute walk of here. For Lembongan, Planet Nomadas is a good value option with friendly staff. Recommended.
