Villa Yukie Senggigi
Southern Gateway to Senggigi Strip
What is the Senggigi Strip, its a coastal strip of about 12 kilometres stretching from Montong to Mangsip with Senggigi Village at the centre; 12 kilometres of bars, restaurants, nightclubs, karaoke joints and beach haunts.
And what is Senggigi, its a small town, the hot spot of Lombok but you wouldn't think so if you went there in the daytime, its a sleepy hollow with some large hotels and few businesses and some mostly empty bars and restaurants. But at night the whole 12 kilometres comes alive with nightlife with Senggigi Town at the centre 7 days a week. If you can't find what you are looking for there you won't find it anywhere.
Villa Yukie is 45 minutes from the airport, a 3 star 6 room homestay in a tropical garden with private pool and luxury rooms, located 250 metres from the beach, Free WiFi. Its located in a quiet residential area at the start of the 12 kilometre Senggigi strip that abounds with night life and fun beaches.
Yes there is 12 kilometres of beach with the best beaches being bays, all with public access for a few Rupiah. The beach near the Villa is mainly a fishing beach where local fishermen bring their boats in and you can buy fish straight off the boats. Swimming is OK but no suited to children. The best beach for socialising and swimming is Senggigi Beach accessible from the town. Very crowded at weekends and not a beach bar or beer vendor in sight, If you don't like drinking coconut juice all day give it a miss. Further north there are many quieter beaches but take your own. One is the fresh smoked fish beach, I love, great for a picnic lunch, swimming and lazing around under the swaying coconut palms.
