    Alcohol-free cocktails are available, the call to prayer is played five times a day through the buildings, MTV has been removed from the list of TV channels available in the rooms, as it is deemed too risque, and hotel staff gently turn away unmarried couples.

    In Lombok, hotels are also promoting themselves as Islamic, with nine so far having gained coveted sharia certification. Echoing the system of stars for conventional hotels, sharia accommodation is labelled with the crescent moon, a symbol associated with Islam, with the best receiving three.

    A hotel must have signs pointing towards Mecca and copies of the Koran in its rooms, as well as a kitchen where halal food can be prepared, to gain its first crescent moon.
