What Does $65 a Night Get You on Lombok Island?

Sunset House Lombok IndonesiaMy birthday was coming around so we decided to leave the peaceful little villa in the rice fields of Ubud, for a few days and visit the beach on another Indonesian island — Lombok.

There was a big balcony, air conditioning, a flat screen television with DVD player and satellite. There was strong Wi-Fi in the room, a mini-fridge and a big bathroom with a steady stream of hot water. The price included a free welcome drink and breakfast.

Because reception needed a copy of our passports on check-in they discovered that it was going to be my birthday. On the day of the event, while we were out lounging in the covered, beachside shelters, they left a birthday cake in the room along with a card signed by the staff and this message written in flowers on the bed.
