Friendly and simple
Desert Point Lodge has a cluster of simple Sasak-style bungalows running back from the coastal road a few kilometres shy of the turn off to Bangko Bangko and Desert Point.
We visited out of season and got the feeling it had been a long time between guests, but the chatty staffer advised he’d give the room a very solid clean out before we stayed -- this was reassuring, as it needed it. Rooms are behind the restaurant in a compact tropical garden and have private simple bathrooms and decent sized beds. There’s an attached restaurant and bar fronting over the road and onto the waterfront. We were told they could organise diving and snorkelling trips here (in season) but overall we got the feeling the staff couldn’t figure out what we were doing here at all out of season.
