Pertamina Mandalika International Street Circuit or Mandalika Circuit in Kuta Village, Central Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) will hold the World Superbike (WSBK) race on 19-21 November 2021 and MotoGP in March 2022. Hotels around that date are on average fully booked.
Hotel Puri Rinjani, for example, from 30 rooms, only 5 rooms were available on the date of the event. No wonder, because the location is strategic for the Mandalika circuit which is only about 5 minutes and is in front of The Mandalika beach.
“For Superbike and MotoGP dates, we are full for rooms. At least 2-3 more rooms are left for back up. If WSBK is 19-21 November, then the MotoGP range from 18-21 March is full,” said Hotel Manager Puri Rinjani , Descha Vyana while talking to detik.com in NTB, Thursday (14/10/2021).
Descha explained that most of the bookings were via Online Travel Agent (OTA) for groups. Some of them come from local residents, to foreigners, namely Europeans.
“Yesterday there were several from the OTA, he immediately ordered a lot and for a period of approximately a week including that date (Superbike and MotoGP), then there were those who had reservations on that date. For WSBK, someone ordered one name up to 15 rooms,” he explained.
