The Hotel

Madak Belo is a small hotel founded in 2011 composed only of 2 beach bungalows and 3 rooms in the main building.

The hotel has been built by myself with some local carpenters from Lombok. All the material come from the main land. It was of course a few hundred times crossing to bring everything. At the time of constructions, we had no electricity, so every peace of wood was cut, planned and sandpapered by hand. It took about 6 month to finish the main building. With no experience at all about building, I started with the 2 beach bungalows so I could check what was possible in to do with the local circumstances.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             n


Located 20 meters from the beach, the 2 beach bungalows got their own en-suite open-air bathroom made out of natural stones for the walls and the lavatory.
The big terrace is equipped with a large outside bamboo sofa coming with a bamboo bench.
Interior is furnished with a high quality queen-size spring-bed and its strong and beautiful handmade bamboo bed base, a proper and adapted mosquito net, a large bamboo dresser, a bamboo table completed with two bamboo chairs.  All the lamps are self designed and unique.
The bungalows fits to couples who are looking for quietness and privacy for a natural and  romantic  time.
Families or group of friends will appreciate too the size of each bungalow. With their 42m² each in total, the bungalows are big enough so we can add an extra queen-size spring-bed mattress equipped with a good mosquito net.
From the bed, you can enjoy almost every morning the beautiful sunrise next to the Rinjani , the 2nd highest mountain in Indonesia (3726 m).


We also got 3 backpackers rooms on the second floor of the main building, located even closer from the beach than the bungalows. It consists in 3 rooms, 1 shared bathroom and 1 big terrace.
The rooms are furnished with the same bed and mosquito net quality than the bungalows. It is definitely a good option for couples or solo travelers. The rooms are too small to add an extra mattress, but they fit to large families or group of friends because they can enjoy the almost privacy of this 90m² floor.
The bathroom  is shared only by the guests of these 3 rooms. There is a natural stone lavatory, western toilets and a shower made from a shell.
The terrace, common to the 3 rooms, is doted of a big bamboo sofa, a little book exchange library and two hammocks just to increase the chances to be full relaxed to appreciate the nice view with a sea only 20 meters in front of the house. Enjoy.
