Lombok may not be as popular as Bali, but it does have its own authentic charms that leave you amazed. Plus, as one of Indonesia's Muslim-majority areas, Lombok is a Muslim-friendly destination. So you can be sure to find Halal foods everywhere you go in the whole province, mainland, or tiny islands. Combined with gorgeous beaches and amazing pools that you can directly jump into for a refreshing plunge, this list of affordable accommodations will convince you that THIS will be your next getaway!
Each accommodation listed here serves seafood, poultry, and vegan dishes. Although there is no pork or lard whatsoever, they do serve alcoholic drinks and they don't have official Halal certification. In Lombok, local businesses are mostly owned and run by Muslims, so we can feel totally safe about their food Halal-ness.
Price information is provided by Agoda based on our search for a one-night stay of 2 pax from November to December 2023, with breakfast included. If you choose to stay at the particular resort off the high season and book quite a while in advance, you'd have a chance to get a lower price.
1. Nirvana Gili Sudak Lombok Resort
Gili Sudak is a beautiful small island just off Lombok, a short boat trip to the south-west from the mainland.

Whatever room type you're choosing, you'll get an amazing sea view! The resort is also blessed by beautiful sunrises, so waking up early every morning there, even though you're officially on vacation, won’t be too difficult.
The popular activities in Lombok’s gilis are of course snorkelling and island hopping, but Gili Sudak in particular boasts of a beautiful beach - pristine white sands and crystal clear water. Just sitting at the beach with your loved one will truly be a magical experience. At night, this resort can also take you away for a special beach candlelight dinner serving the house chef's specialty seafood dishes! Remember to request for halal dining options!
