One of my favourite hotels to stay if I come back to Jereweh area. Good price for good hotel… good people there… I love it. If you are surfer and want to surf in West Sumbawa, come here. Easy access to Tropicals and Yoyos surfing spots.

Awesome accommodation. Everything is clean and simple. It’s right out to one of Sumbawa’s beautiful beaches. You have the beach almost to yourself, and the sunset here is amazing. Grab a bintang, sit in the sand and take it all in.

The location is picturesque and the rooms simple and cheap … I had some of the best food I’ve eaten so far while traveling here. The dinner and lunch buffet is awesome and something different every night. Loved chilling in the hammocks, playing pool etc…There are not many places in YoYos that are this good and this cheap with such good food options.
