A good flashpacker option
If you’re looking for comfortable flashpacker lodgings off the beach in the heart of Senggigi, Sendok is hard to beat.
Staff are friendly and helpful, though being greeted "welcome home" every time you walk in was a bit of a first for us. Rooms come in two main flavours, fan-cooled and air-con, with most rooms being in a duplex setup meandering back through a well loved garden behind the restaurant, bar and pool. The brightly coloured rooms are moderately sized -- our air-con room easily accommodated an extra mattress on the floor and while we would have had trouble swinging a cat, as we left the feline at home that wasn’t much of an issue. The cold-water bathroom was functional, but we’d have preferred hot water to a TV -- maybe next time. Some rooms are close to the pool and restaurant, but as the bar hosts live music, if you are a light sleeper try for a room further back. The bar mixes a solid margarita, but the food is oddly expensive -- even by Senggigi standards -- so we’d suggest eating elsewhere. Overall, if you’re looking for comfortable albeit simple lodgings in the heart of Senggigi and are not fussed about being off the beach, this is a reasonable choice -- we’d stay here again.
