Nusa Lembongan hotels and lodging guide
Comfy guesthouses are reasonably-priced here
Despite its size there is a good range of accommodation choices in Nusa Lembongan. Most hotels and guest houses are located directly facing or within a stone’s throw of its delightful beaches and even bottom end budget homestays often boast priceless ocean views. The vast majority of places to stay are located at Mushroom Bay and Jungutbatu. The latter is the most developed resort and the best place to look for budget accommodation.
There are dozens of small bungalow resorts offering simply furnished rooms starting at around rp70,000 (US$7) a night and several cater specifically to the surfing community. Jungutbatu also has a decent range of mid priced hotels with air conditioning, hot water and perhaps use of a swimming pool. Expect to pay upwards of rp350,000 (US$37) for a comfortable and stylish double room.
Mushroom Bay is a little more upmarket and caters generally to older travellers and families. There are many boutique hotels right on the beach and several stylish villa developments. You won’t get the same value for money here as you are paying premium prices for the most idyllic spots.
Many of the hotels here do offer sizeable discounts to guests who arrive by one of the luxury cruise companies who operate out of Benoa harbour in Bali. Virtually every single hotel and guest house in Nusa Lembongan will have an attached restaurant and bar. See our recommended list below of Nusa Lembongan hotel accommodation below.
