“We had High Expectations. The Oberoi Lombok Surpassed Them.”

The Oberoi Lombok, found on Indonesia’s Medana Beach, is known as a popular destination for its stellar service, enticing villas & dining options, and recreational activities.

One of our clients recently visited the Oberoi Lombok and came back incredibly impressed by his experience. His TripAdvisor review directs a giant spotlight on how amazing the Oberoi Lombok is. In fact, according to our client, “the Oberoi was beyond amazing”.

Even from the beginning of our clients’ arrival, the staff “pampered them with their attention to the most minute of details” and immediately offered pre-check in “tea and traditional cakes“. This service continued throughout their whole trip even up to their departure where “check out was fuss free”. For them, the Oberoi Lombok excelled on every service touch point”.

The Oberoi Lombok’s villas are a guest favorite. “Designed in traditional Indonesian style”, the rooms are filled with “local art”, “huge bathrooms”, and are “well-cooled”. Our clients especially loved the “complimentary fruit basket, turndown service, and bottled water in every corner”.

The Lumbung Restaurant, with its Indonesian and Continental offerings, is memorable for the Oberoi Lombok’s guests. The meals are delicious and the service, superb. Our client had “a dietary preference and the staff remembered it every time” he was there. It truly is superb when a service outlet remembers you and your needs so specifically.

Of course, for many guests, recreation is the highlight of their vacation. Our client absolutely loved the activities available at the Oberoi Lombok. The two highlights were the “snorkeling trip to the Gili Islands” on the Oberoi Lombok’s “private jetty”, deemed “an excellent trip out,  and the “private cart and pony ride to Tanjung Market & Village”, which is  not to be missed”The private cart and pony ride was especially beloved as it was a “complimentary trip where the Oberoi Lombok loaded their cart with an icebox with bottled water and cold towels” in case our clients were overheated. These two trips were definitely experiences to remember.

The Oberoi Lombok undoubtedly took an extra leap to make our clients’ trip a roaring success. Our client knew that what made the trip “extra special was the excellent heartware and hardware of the Oberoi Lombok”. At the end they even thanked us for “a truly superstar start to end service” and we are honestly just so happy that they had such an amazing time.

“Words alone can’t describe how wonderful” our clients’ stay was, so in order to truly understand their “defining experience”, it’s time to take a trip to the Oberoi Lombok.

However, the best rooms at the Park Hyatt Chicago are the suites. The Armani and Bottega Veneta suites of the Park Hyatt Chicago were specially designed by the brands to display their individual tastes. The Armani suite in particular retains an impeccable flair from the lower framed European styled bed to the full china available for tea. It also has one of the best lake views in the Chicago area.

The Park Hyatt Chicago’s 7th Floor centers on its NoMi brand. With the NoMi Spa, NoMi Garden, NoMi Lounge, and the NoMi Kitchen, everywhere you turn there is NoMi. The Spa includes a 24 hour fitness center, an intimate nail salon, and the quiet treatment rooms that are one of the only places to get a hydrofacial in a Chicago hotel. The NoMi Garden is the outdoor terraced oasis that is open for lunch and dinner. The space truly makes guests feel as though they are secluded from the crowds but surrounded with the spectacular views of Chicago skyscrapers. The NoMi Lounge, which is not usually staffed during the day is a desirable place to relax and request for a drink from the Garden or the Kitchen.

One of the most impressive aspects of the hotel is the abundance of remarkable artworks. Drawing from the Pritzker Family’s art collection and commissions from the School of Art Institute Chicago’s student work, the presence of cultured sophistication never leaves the awareness of the guest. The lobby is the first place to begin the art tour with a centerpiece made of the moving boxes of Robert Rauschenberg as he was moving to Florida. Some love it, some do not but ultimately it draws the eye. The artistry continues with the wall of fossils found in the library off the corner of the library and the artworks in the art gallery. The art gallery is especially significant as it includes an original early sketch by Matisse and displays of Dale Chihuly Glass works, which are also found in the event spaces. Everywhere you turn in the Park Hyatt Chicago you can feel more and more how important art is to the Chicago locals. You can also feel how important it is to the Park Hyatt to connect their guests with the surrounding environment.

The Park Hyatt Chicago is one of the top luxurious yet approachable hotels in Chicago.
