While visiting Nusa Lembongan, I stayed at the luxury Mahagiri Resort encompassed by the beachside vibes. Located at Banjar Kaja Desa Jungutbatu road, this resort faces the Pantai Mahagiri beach on one side. While, on the other side, it’s a walkable distance from plenty of bars and restaurants in the neighbourhood. On the onset, Mahagiri Resort disseminates lovely vibes with its quiet reception lobby opening into a vibrant bar and lounge. This all in one, bar, lounge and restaurant, face a ravishing swimming pool perched by the beachside. For as long as you can see, there’s gorgeous soft white sand unrolled on the ground. I think anyone checking into this hotel would want to spend more time out by the beach than inside the rooms. To facilitate your enjoyment, there are plenty of sun umbrellas for the daytime, and an equal amount of fancy beach chairs for the evening.
In fact, at first glance, the resort room also emits a beach vibe with its off-white coral and sea blue shades. From the walls, decor, choice of pillows to the elemental beauty, everything is a sweet prompting of a sandy shore. I quite liked the fish art placed above the bed’s headrest. For centuries, Fish Art has been treated as an eternal and diverse symbol of prosperity. In point of fact, in manier cultures, they even use fish art ornaments to epitomise wealth and happiness. So to say, it was an auspicious welcome into the spick and span room equipped with all required facilities.
I barely got time to use any, however, there was everything from a walk-in closet, large TV, to tea/coffee making facilities. What more, the room opens to a lovely balcony. The ensuite washroom was of a decent size and didn’t have a bathtub. But with an infinite-beach to your redeem, who needs a bathtub anyway? This washroom had plenty of towels, complimentary toiletries, hairdryer, and a curtained section for the shower. All in all, neat and clean space to freshen up.
I largely spent my day either splashing in the pool or lazily lounging by the beach. In fact, during the evening I was in the pool and post-dinner I was closer to the sea. If I am not mistaken, then I think it was a private beach, meaning only in-house guests had access to it. I think so because the beach facing the Mahagiri Resort was all decked in beautiful decorations. In the evening, after the sun, set down, a vivid trail of lights was lit up. From circular paper lanterns above my head to octopus-shaped lights on the ground, it was all too beautiful to walk-by. Add to that typical Balinese Hut umbrellas, swing seatings and one of the most beautiful sunsets I observed in Nusa Lembongan!
This resort is perfect for honeymooners, couples and even families with kids. There’s something for everyone including drinks, food and multiple recreation activities. In addition, the reception staff is absolutely warm and polite. They took my breakfast order a day in advance. Next day in the morning, I was served, hot breakfast of my choice, at the time I arrived in the restaurant. I quite appreciate their punctuality and service culture. Whatever the staff did, they did it with a smile on their face.
