The Oberoi Lombok
Lombok gives you a chance to discover a very unhurried way of Indonesian life – deserted beaches, lush rainforest and sleepy villages are very much the order of the day here. Direct flights from Singapore make it the perfect twin-centre holiday, failing that fly from Bali or ramp up the adrenalin levels a little and take a speedboat across the Bali Sea.
This beautiful resort is tucked away on a private beach at Medana Bay amongst acres of tropical gardens and the setting is, quite simply, beautiful. The sunsets are arguably the best in Asia – we’ll let you decide but with the silhouette of Mt Agnung in Bali and the three Gili Islands on the horizon it will take some beating.
The Oberoi Lombok
Pavilions and villas are strewn throughout the gardens; traditional in style with thatched roofs, highly polished teak and Indonesian objet d’art create an unmistakable, authentic ambiance. Luxury Pavilions offer garden or ocean views whilst Luxury Villas have more space, secluded courtyards and lavish four poster beds. For the ultimate treat, we think the Luxury Pool Villas are a must. Veiled behind high stone walls you will find your own thatched villa complete with private pool, sunken bath and your own secret garden!
Dining options do not disappoint either with the Sunbird Café open for breakfast – think Asian, Indonesian and continental. Lumbung is an elegant open-sided pavilion in a coconut grove garden setting, whilst Tokek Bar gives you a front row view of the shimmering ocean and is the perfect spot for lunch. The open-air amphitheatre is the place for atmospheric evenings by candle light.
The Oberoi has every creature comfort and more. There is a vast swimming pool, an indulgent spa, complimentary yoga sessions and even a fully supervised children’s programme with a veritable feast of unusual and unique activities to keep them entertained, but actually it’s what you can do outside the resort that we love the most. Embark on a snorkelling trip to the unspoilt Gili Islands Reef, try your luck at Sasak pottery classes or take a cidmo – (horse drawn cart to you and me) to the market in Tanjung with a local guide for a real taste of Lombok life.
