Jl Garuda 41, Sumbawa Besar

More on Sumbawa Besar

This is arguably the smartest hotel in downtown Sumbawa Besar, with immaculate modern rooms, professional staff and a location just a short walk from the airport terminal.

Travelfish says:

If you’re one with a keen eye for cleanliness, you don’t mind being a little away from downtown, and this fits within your budget, then look no further. Facilities include flatscreen TV, free WiFi, hot-water shower (the bathroom we were shown was probably the cleanest, most sparkling we saw in all of Sumbawa) and a small desk. Beds are firm and with good linen, a decorative throw and a bedside light. The single rooms are compact, but the standards have enough space and come in both double and twin configurations. Deluxes are bigger again and come with a private balcony but we’d say not worth the extra money. There is a restaurant on site and the staff are friendly. With just over a dozen rooms, if you know your dates, it pays to make a reservation -- the hotel was full when we visited, but the friendly staff obligingly showed us the room of a guest who was yet to check in. The hotel has a second property, the beachside Samawa Seaside Cottages, which looks out towards Moyo Island and is 21 kilometres north of Sumbawa Besar’s airport. Rates start at 1,700,000 rupiah and while we didn’t take a look, if you were in Sumbawa Besar for a stretch and found Kencana Beach too rundown, this might be worth investigating.
