What’s a trip to Bali without a visit to its quieter sister island, Lombok? Despite a challenging 2018, Lombok is even more beautiful and as captivating as ever and those looking to island hop from Bali to Lombok and the Gili Islands will find that the island still has so much to offer, from spellbinding natural beauty, fascinating culture to some of the world’s most luxurious accommodations.
Located in the north of Lombok overlooking the pristine and virgin white sands of Sire Beach, Hotel Tugu Lombok is a one-of-a-kind tropical destination that promises more than just a memorable stay. This award-winning resort hotel is the location for an all-encompassing Indonesian island experience – the resort stands as a monument for the forgotten history, art and romance of ancient kingdoms, at the same time providing heavenly tropical luxuries like no other resorts do. Hotel Tugu Lombok features hundreds of original, beautiful artworks and antiques painstakingly collected and assembled as a loving testament to the long forgotten, original culture of the isle of Lombok. All guests’ accommodations are housed in luxurious traditional buildings fit for royalty – choose from the authentically designed Kampung Lombok Bungalows characterized with wood and bamboo or the Ampenan Bungalows that celebrate the Peranakan culture. Those who prefer even more privacy can choose from a selection of villas including Svarga Villas with beautiful antique pieces and oversized heavenly beds, Aloon-Aloon Garden Villas each with its own tropical garden and the Bhagavat Gita Oceanfront Suites, splendidly housed in beautiful buildings from the colonial-era with opulent fixtures and furnishings. For a truly immersive experience, stay in an ancient temple building at the Puri Dadap Merah Villa that comes with its own private rooftop area, perfect for a romantic dinner. Honeymooners would love Sang Hyang Djiwo, a spacious villa of 600m2 on acres of quiet green lawn with views of the sea and its own 7-metre long private plunge pool, while Sang Hyang Nirvana and Sang Hyang Jagatnata are opulent beachfront villas with 400m2 of gardens that can host private functions and 15 meter long pool fronting the sea.
There is plenty to see and do during your stay. Hotel Tugu Lombok is located just minutes away from the three Gili Islands; head there with the resort’s uniquely crafted Dragon Boat, swim and snorkel with sea turtles and manta rays, visit Gangga waterfall and enjoy a picnic lunch at the foot of Mount Rinjani. You can also take the little ones on a traditional horse-drawn carriage. Participate in a traditional cooking class for the family, collect vegetables in the resort’s own garden, learn about various spices, and savour your very own Indonesian dishes. With only 36 suites and villas on hectares of lush plantation and white sand beach, roaming around the resort is a delight. Spend all day splashing in two beautiful swimming pools or in the sparkling blue sea, go fishing, play on the stand-up paddle and watch the sunset over a private bonfire on the dazzling sand.
