Most upmarket digs in town
Rinjani Lodge is easily the most upmarket of the digs in Senaru, but with limited rooms in high season you will need to book in advance to get in.
Rooms are well oversized with semi-outdoor bathrooms that themselves are almost the size of some of the more budget-orientated rooms in Senaru. They’re air-con, with flat screen TVs and comfortable lounging areas out front, and a terraced, well-loved and still developing garden. Rinjani Lodge also has the only swimming pool in central Senaru and it is a spectacularly set horizon edition, offering tremendous views from the peak to the ocean. It also backs on to a split level terrace restaurant that delivers on a wide range of food from Indonesian through to Western. What’s not to like? Two things: Rinjani opens the pool and restaurant to outside day guests, meaning that on weekends and holiday periods (outside of the early morning) the entire place is completely overrun -- and far from the peaceful enclave it can otherwise be. Secondly, the restaurant is woefully overpriced. Yes, the food is good, but no, the prices are not realistic. Staff are very good. For a midweek splurge, this is well worth considering, but on weekends, we’d look elsewhere -- especially at this price tag.
