Anandita is exactly what a ‘destination villa’ should be.  It was lovely to be surrounded by calm seas, very comfortable lodgings and a team of staff who really know what they are doing.  Everything is laid on and we really had no desire go out, feeling so relaxed and content that all we did was swim, eat and sleep in the sun, with a little bit of volleyball and billiards thrown in for good measure.  The beach is ultra safe making it a great place for children to paddle and play; we felt that families would love this place given the choice of activities, and the room layout and bed configuration.  That said, the rooms would work equally well for four couples.

Something that really impressed us was the way the staff stopped what they were doing when we invited them to make up the numbers for a game of volleyball. It is rare to find a villa where the owner has encouraged his staff to go the extra mile to please guests in this way.  To quote from the visitors’ book, “The staff are truly the heart of Anandita”.  The kitchen produces some fine meals, with the emphasis on fresh fish and local produce - but remember that (if you wish to order from the suggestion menu) you need to give a bit of notice when ordering your meals or making your grocery list as the villa is a long way from the nearest shops.  An easy alternative is to opt for the all inclusive meal package offered at the villa which includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea.

Nothing changes very much in Lombok, so when we returned to Villa Anandita for our three-year-update we were delighted to find that everything was very much as it had been, including most of the staff who remembered us from our first visit.  Gusti the manager/activities manager delighted us with his energy and enthusiasm, taking us out for a long bicycle ride across the golf course and along rough tracks through the fields to the traditional market at Tanjung.  Since our last visit, the complement of bicycles has gone up to 13 and the owners have added a spa pavilion with two massage beds (professional therapists will come to the villa to deliver soothing treatments).  We were also pleased to find that the villa now has a WiFi internet connection, so it doesn’t feel quite so detached from the world.  The property has been well maintained but the beach bordering the garden has suffered from a bit of erosion so it has got narrower, but it is still beautiful to look at and you only have to walk a short distance to reach a wider section of sand.  Oh yes, there’s a new international airport in Lombok now, which is further away from the villa, so the journey is longer but you’ll see some gorgeous rural countryside en route.

Highlights

There are just so many things to do at Anandita; the kids will have a ball. Taking a sea kayak out snorkelling among colourful fish on the edge of the reef was a blast as we drifted with the current through the troughs and valleys of the shallow sea floor ably assisted by Gusti, the villa’s manager and activity guide. The swimming pool is a treat due to its unconventional design and its (cold) jacuzzi, shaded by trees and shrubs. It was a great place to get lost in a book during the heat of the day, while the staff brought cold beers with the regularity of a Tokyo subway train.

Surprises

Really no negatives here but, at a push, we thought the living room wasn’t perhaps as cosy as it could have been for watching movies. But then we got side tracked by the novelty of the billiard table anyway!

Thank you to the Anandita team for making the past 10 days an unforgettable holiday in Lombok - especially the crepes, fresh fruit, coffee to the perfect pina colada. We really appreciate you guys not obliterating us at volleyball and letting us maintain some dignity. We hope to come back and see the Anandita family soon.

We had an amazing experience in Lombok staying at the Anandita. The property is located in a beautiful setting with a private beach with a great view of Gili Air on the left and Mt Rinjani on the right. The staff led by Gusti are amazing and very friendly. They are helpful, polite and very service oriented. The BBQ dinner was a unique and pleasant experience too - accompanied by a splendid local band under the stars! Best wishes.

Anandita is an amazing place made even more special by the beautiful staff. The care taken to make our stay relaxing, comfortable and care free was second to none. All of the staff made the holiday extra fun for our children by playing soccer, volleyball and activities on the beach. The food was amazing - it was like being in a five star restaurant day and night. It was so nice to wander the beach and the beautiful grounds - the beach side pavilion was probably my favorite spot! Thank you Ade, Aria, Mr Gusti and everyone who helped make our stay so special, it was a truly amazing week!

Wow, to all the Anandita team, you have a most beautiful villa, in the most serene surroundings. Gusti, you were a wonderful host. You organise activities with such enthusiasm, bike riding, snorkeling, parties, BBQs. You were terrific! Your staff are a credit to the villa, friendly and knowledgeable. Thanks for a fantastic new year celebration along with an unforgettable birthday celebration.Gusti gave us such personal care, taking my mother shopping for a hat and giving a tour, to taking a bunch of us snorkeling along the reefs offshore. The food staff were great working with all of our requests and doing their best to cater to the spicy food requests along with the kids who could not handle it. We got to try local fruits in season and various local dishes. Kudos to the grounds crew who keep the landscaping immaculate and the pool so clear. It made for such pleasant times lounging the pool, out at the bale or even in the common room. Thank you!

Really, really enjoyed our 4 days here! The villa facilities exceeded our expectations, especially after the 2 hours drive in the dark from the airport. But sooooooo worth it. Gusti and his staff are very lovely ~ friendly and helpful on every occasion, but quite discreet. We especially enjoyed the afternoon games of volleyball and football. Gusti makes an excellent referee. We had great food, welcome cups of tea, lots (lots lots) of coca cola. Floated about in the, oh so bee-u-ti-flu pool (is there a better one in Asia?) and avoided all forms of activity. If only we had been motivated to leave this wonderful sanctuary, I'm sure there would have been many things to do, but we didn't. We just completely relaxed. Being dragged back to Singapore very much against our wish to stay here forever. An absolute gem. Thank you Gusti & Team.

After having visited Bali, Lombok and the Anandita was the best stop in our holiday. We loved to be here, enjoying the warm personal touch of the staff and the lovely surroundings. This villa was in no way any less than the 5 stars hotels we visited in Bali. Highlights were the boat trip to the Gilis where we eventually did see turtles, and the daily volleyball competition with did with the ever smiling staff. The children loved it. A special thanks to Gusti and his relentless efforts to make our stay unforgettable. Terima kasi!

During our 7 days in this little piece of heaven, we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff were incredible (we love Erni!) and knew what we wanted before we did! Would thoroughly recommend a snorkeling trip to Gili Air + Meno (saw amazing turtles which we swam with!) we did not do much else but would recommend steering clear of Hotel Tugu as food is overpriced and nowhere near as good as the wonderful chefs here. Definitely BBQ on the beach was a highlight. We will definitely be coming back again. You can't get paradise like it!

Every day you are greeted with a warm smile and friendly face and there is no request too difficult for the staff. Highlights of our stay here would have to be the beach barbecues, our trip to the Gillis, riding the scooters and the magical 50th birthday celebration for Robyn and Theo with amazing decorations, fabulous food, fireworks and the talented band "Hang on".

We have found paradise. We are 4 couples living in Asia and we chose the Anandita for one of our's 40th birthday vacation. We definitely made the right choice! Gusti & the team were amazing - nothing was too much trouble and he went out of his way above and beyond, to ensure we were well looked after. He organised boats, parties, bands, paddle boards, bike rides, happy hour - our requests were always met with a smile & can attitude. The food was delicious. Ida was such a smiley, friendly face to greet us all day and look after us. The whole team are a credit to the Anandita. Gusti takes great pride in his job and really made our stay special. On our final night the staff played traditional music for us after dinner - they call themselves "The crazy band". It was very lovely. Thank you Gusti, Ida and the team, for making our stay at the Anandita such an amazing, enjoyable experience. We all cannot wait to come back. We might even bring the kids next time. ;-)

Big thanks again & again to Gusti and all the lovely staff of Anandita, Ernie, Ida, Alex and the rest of the team. Our son Tom prepared this vacation in your villa for our Christmas holiday and it was one of our best time of our life! The dining at the beach we enjoyed so much, especially our Christmas eve dinner with the band & Christmas day dinner with the music and the dancers. Memories of your place will remain with us for very long time in our retirement life. Thank you.

Oh my goodness, what a holiday, what a magnificent villa and surroundings. Simply HEAVEN ON EARTH. Staff were the best we have come across, and we have stayed in many villas in Bali and all over the islands. Nothing was too much trouble for Mr Gusti all the way down to ground staff. I would suggest anyone thinking of coming to the villa should order Indonesian food for the first day and when you get here, then pick your menu, as the way it is written on the website can be confusing. We celebrated a birthday while here and we were blown away with how special they made it. Food, fireworks, decorations, entertainment were beyond our expectations! Wow. As soon as we got home, we were booking to come again. Until next time!

This has been a wonderful holiday, the first one in our memory where we have had the luxury of just relaxing and enjoying leisure activities away from the bustle of city life. We have been completely spoilt by the first class service of Gusti and the staff at the villa. Every need of ours was anticipated and met beyond our expectations. We will not hesitate to highly recommend our experience to our friends and to come back again for our next family holiday. Thank U!

We feel lucky to have found Villa Anandita and enjoyed a wonderful, happy family Christmas amongst the excellent staff who became our friends and family too for the week. It's not cheap, but you pay for Paradise and 8 of us wallowed in it's peace and tranquility. Having said that, we had plenty to do with snorkeling amongst the coral reef, sea kayaking, cycling round the local roads, ping pong, snooker, swimming, volleyball, golf, massage...in fact not enough time to do excursions further away as so happy to be at the Anandita almost full time. The staff, led by the bubbly, laughing Gusti were all delightful and full of enthusiasm to make our stay the best ever and nothing was too much trouble. We got to know everyone from The two brilliant chefs, Ida, Erni, the smiley gardeners, the security who helped us with our kayaks and Alex who not only met us at the airport but seemed to be everywhere helping us on boat expeditions, to cleaning our rooms. Gusti had many wonderful surprises for us and organised our days and evenings with such pleasure and delight on his face, but was just as happy to leave us in peace by the pool. We have already recommended it to our friends who in turn have already a possible plan in mind for a holiday there. In summary, a fabulous oasis amongst the genuine and smiley and welcoming people of Lombok. A well designed house for the climate with superb landscaping, close to the beach and a 25 minute kayak from the Gilly Islands (if you are feeling fit!)

Villa Anandita was absolute heaven! A very typical Bali style decorated villa with pavillions, but an unusually large garden and a pool like a resort hotel lagoon. So much space to walk around and feel freedom from the outside world to relax in a beautiful setting. Watching sunsets with margaritas and staff that waited on us hand and foot. Each day was filled with activities which the Villa Manager arranged for us - He was full of so much enthusiasm, that made our stay memorable. We went to the most amazing waterfalls we had ever seen. We also went on a short boat ride with him to Gili Air and Gili Memo and swam with the turtles and fed bread to colourful fish. This was the most memorable trip. The beach had lovely white sand and the water was clean enough to swim when the tide came in. When the tide went out, you could walk amongst the seaweed and coral and discover all sorts of sea creatures from starfish , octopus and much more. The staff prepared 3 meals a day for us, which we had to order in advance the night before. The meals were ok, but nothing to rave about. We had a lovely meal up at the new resort Lombok Lodge which we recommend and was recommended by friends. Overall a very pleasant stay and a great family holiday. We really felt we unwound in this place because of the relaxed atmosphere, which is exactly what we were looking for with our family. We do recommend this Villa, but if you like your food like us, we advise you take your own nibblies like cheese, olives, crackers, chips, nuts etc as this is difficult to get in this area. We took these items in our luggage from singapore and I think this really helped.

The trip from airport to the Anandita takes unfortunately 2 houres. On arrival there is a perfect service in an unique environment. Palmtrees and a fantastic prestine beach. For diving a perfect location. The boat from Gili Air Dive picks you up on your private beach, a pleasant experience again. The villa is near the hotel Tugu, you are just a little walk away on the beach for a cold Bintang beer. The manager, Gusti, uses the hotelprices as a reference. Be prepared to pay 350.000 IDR instead of 130.000 IDR for a Balinese massage, what we paid in the Villa The Mahatma House in Bali. Same for the foodprice, much to much food and a 30 % extra on the grocery prices.

The villa is some distance from the airport and it took almost 2 hours to get through the small streets in Lombok to arrive at the villa.

The Anandita /villa/villa-anandita.aspx Price starts at $750 - $1,490 per night
8.76 out of 10
based on 76 user reviews. Anandita is exactly what a ‘destination villa’ should be.  It was lovely to be surrounded by calm seas, very comfortable lodgings and a team of staff who really know what they are doing.  Everything is laid on and we really had no desire go out, feeling so relaxed and content that all we did was swim, eat and sleep in the sun, with a little bit of volleyball and billiards thrown in for good measure.  The beach is ultra safe making it a great place for children to paddle and play; we felt that families would love this place given the choice of activities, and the room layout and bed configuration.  That said, the rooms would work equally well for four couples.

Something that really impressed us was the way the staff stopped what they were doing when we invited them to make up the numbers for a game of volleyball. It is rare to find a villa where the owner has encouraged his staff to go the extra mile to please guests in this way.  To quote from the visitors’ book, “The staff are truly the heart of Anandita”.  The kitchen produces some fine meals, with the emphasis on fresh fish and local produce - but remember that (if you wish to order from the suggestion menu) you need to give a bit of notice when ordering your meals or making your grocery list as the villa is a long way from the nearest shops.  An easy alternative is to opt for the all inclusive meal package offered at the villa which includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea.

Nothing changes very much in Lombok, so when we returned to Villa Anandita for our three-year-update we were delighted to find that everything was very much as it had been, including most of the staff who remembered us from our first visit.  Gusti the manager/activities manager delighted us with his energy and enthusiasm, taking us out for a long bicycle ride across the golf course and along rough tracks through the fields to the traditional market at Tanjung.  Since our last visit, the complement of bicycles has gone up to 13 and the owners have added a spa pavilion with two massage beds (professional therapists will come to the villa to deliver soothing treatments).  We were also pleased to find that the villa now has a WiFi internet connection, so it doesn’t feel quite so detached from the world.  The property has been well maintained but the beach bordering the garden has suffered from a bit of erosion so it has got narrower, but it is still beautiful to look at and you only have to walk a short distance to reach a wider section of sand.  Oh yes, there’s a new international airport in Lombok now, which is further away from the villa, so the journey is longer but you’ll see some gorgeous rural countryside en route.
