To whom it may concern,
I have hired vehicle’s from Supratman (Man) on trips to Lombok since a referral from a friend in 2005. Every trip, Man has always delivered high quality vehicles, for the right price and with a level of service that makes it a pleasure to deal with Man. Man has also assisted my trips to Lombok with airport pick-ups and drop-offs in Mataram, transport to and from the Gili islands as well as additional vehicles on short notice. I have referred many friends and family to Man whenever they travel to Lombok, and like myself they are always pleased with the professional manner in which Man conducts himself. I would not hesitate to recommend Man as the first point of contact for any person intending to travel to Lombok.

I was impressed with Supratman’s professionalism in providing not only prompt replies to my endless questions, but also his patience and sincerity in answering them. And I am glad we made the right choice. Special thanks to Pak Erwin and the driver for entertaining our requests to try the sate Ikan and Jagung Bakar even though the day trip had exceeded the stipulated time. My heartfelt appreciation to Man and his gang (Epol, Oyib, porters-cum-cook and driver) for making the trek a truly unforgettable experience, thanks to all your encouragement and laughter. 🙂

Warmest regards,
Nur Rasidah

Subject: LOMBOK, HEERLIJK EILAND!

Sedert 2003 komen wij iederjaar minimaal 1 x per jaar voor een dag of veertien naar Lombok.
In die jaren zijn we het eiland, en speciaal zijn bewoners, steeds meer gaan waarderen!
Voor onze verwende, westerse instelling biedt een vacantie hier zowat alles, wat je je maar kunt wensen.

De hotels zijn, zeker rondom Senggigi, op ca 25 minuten rijden van Mataram Airport, te kust en te keur: van Luxe, iets ten noorden van het plaatsje, tot heel eenvoudig en gemoedelijk.
Tussen € 20,– en € 60,– vind je altijd wel wat van je gading.

Honger hoef je in Senggigi absoluut niet te leiden: naast de diverse goede hotel-restaurants zul je er tal van (vaak eenvoudige, gemoedelijke restaurantjes tegenkomen, die stuk voor stuk goed zijn.
Onze favorieten: Bale Tajuk van Ibu Atik en Arlina’s , daar schuin tegenover. In het laatste restaurant spreekt een van de obers zelfs een behoorlijk mondje nederlands (vraag naar Pak Tahid), geleerd van de toeristen! Smakelijk, authentiek en….goedkoop! Maar dat betekent niet, dat de anderen niet goed zouden zijn!

In de plaatselijke supermarkt heeft men zelfs bruine broodjes (even naar vragen) en in de Art Market vind je al snel iets van je gading tegen betaalbare prijzen. Wel ‘tawarren”(afdingen, natuurlijk.

Wil je echt uitgebreid gaan shoppen, neem dan de Bemo (locale busje), dat je voor een paar centen naar de Pasar (markt) in Ampenan brengt. Wanneer je over de markt gelopen bent, laat je dan ook eens in een “dogcar of Lombok Ferrari” (een koetsje met paard), naar de “Barata” brengen, een grote, overdekte markt in de vorm van een warenhuis. Je weet niet, wat je ziet!

Uitstapjes zijn er te kust en te keur: Ampanan en Mataram, het Sasakdorp (met de originele bewoners van Lombok, de Sasaks), Tete Batu, een voormalige koloniale villa, waar je een prachtige wandeling door de sawah’s (rijstvelden) of tabaksaanplanten kunt maken, tochten over het eiland, kortom, veel meer als de veelal wel bekende tochten naar de Gili eilanden.
Huur gewoon een auto met chauffeur, da’s best te doen!

Wij laten ons voor onze tochten altijd adviseren door Supratman Samsi, te bereiken via deze site; via SEMBILAN PULAU TOUR COMPANY, LOMBOK INDONESIA, mobile +62 8175773060.
Wij hebben vanaf ons eerste bezoek aan Lombok ieder jaar opnieuw contact met hem en staan steeds weer verbaasd over zijn liefde en kennis voor “zijn“ eiland, zijn organisatie- en improvisatietalent en vooral: zijn beminnelijke bescheidenheid! Warm aanbevolen!

Wanneer u eens iets anders wilt als het wel erg touristische Bali is Lombok zeker een goed alternatief. DOEN!

Subject: Great organizer

I have been coming to Lombok every year for the last 6 years and every year Man (Supratman Samsi) meets us at the airport or harbour with our car.
Man’s prompt attention to my request by either Phone or email have made my visits so much easier. He always goes the ‘extra mile’ getting local flight details for us, supplying contact number, bringing maps & clear easy directions.
This Level of service what i have always received from Man, along with the good car and reliable cars that he delivers and very reasonable rates that he charges is the best that I have found in my 12 years at visiting Indonesia, not just the last 6 years in Lombok.

Sincerely,
Joe & Chris Whiteley Cronulla

When I first started making our travel arrangements for Indonesia, I did not just want to go to Bali. I also wanted to go to Lombok because everybody who has been there, loved it. Now I totally understand why! We stayed in Sengiggi, an area on the west coast of Lombok. It’s a small little community with a few resorts/hotels and a number of restaurants, bars and cafes. It is not tacky and commercialised at all. In fact, there were very few tourists there – the locals and the tourists mixed and interacted easily and happily. We stayed at the Sheraton. OH! What a dream! Everything about the Sheraton Sengiggi was wonderful – the staff, the rooms, the garden, the spa (gotta try the chocolate massage!), the swimming pool and the rooms! If you want luxury in Lombok, Sheraton Sengiggi is definitely the way to go!

My friend and I decided to go on a snorkelling trip to Gili Nanggu with a local tour guide (Supratman Samsi). He recommended to take us to this island to go snorkelling so we followed his advice. We drove from Sengiggi to the port. It was a fantastic way to see the countryside and the villages in Lombok. He was very informative about the Indonesian culture, the religions, beliefs and customs of his country. On the way, we stopped at a pottery factory. It was very interesting to see the lady making pottery.

When we got to the small island (only one hotel on the island), we could see why Supratman recommended to come here. It was gorgeous! The water was crystal clear and the sand was so soft and white! He took us out in the water (along with some bread) and the fish were completely surrounding us! It was amazing! All the fish you could ever imagine were there – right in front of your face! They were swimming all around you! We saw lots of starfish, colourful coral and of course tons of beautiful fish. This was by far the best snorkelling I have done (I have snorkelled in Thailand and the Philippines). If you like snorkelling, I highly recommend doing this day trip!

In Sengiggi, my friends and I ended up at HAPPY CAFE every night. The band there is fantastic playing anything and everything that you request! VERY talented. The owner and his son are very kind, warm and welcoming people. They made the effort to come over and talk to us and treated us with the best hospitality one could imagine!!!!! Definitely visit Happy Cafe if you are in Sengiggi! (the melon martinis are to-die-for!).

We spent one night on Gili Trawangan. It’s nicknamed the “party island”. You can easily see why because the main “drag” is filled with restaurants and bars. There is a wonderful laid-back feeling about this place.
Everybody is relaxed and there to have a good time. The snorkelling trip we took was fantastic! We went to a few different places to snorkel. We even saw sea turtles!! That was the highlight of the snorkelling! The Gilis are definitely a must-see! Try to spend at least one (if not a few) nights there!

For our final night back in Sengiggi, we decided to stay at the Sengiggi Reef Resort. It was a nice place with cute little huts. It will be much better when they have a pool. You’ll have the perfect little paradise with a nice pool and the beautiful ocean right at your feet!

If you have any questions, need help with travel arrangements or anything, I highly recommend Supratman Samsi to be your travel agent, tour guide or whatever. He is extremely helpful, patient and accommodating. His English is fantastic so there are no problems with communication! MAN is the man to talk to for any travel / accommodations / tours for Lombok! When I return, I will definitely ask him for help again!

Sincerely,
Sonya Yong
