Features: Lombok, Bali’s neighbor to the east, is a quiet island of uncrowded beaches dominated by the spectacular volcano of Mt Rinjani.

Lombok has verdant valleys and vast arid regions providing great contrast in scenery. Much less crowded than Bali, Lombok is an excellent choice for travelers seeking peaceful more secluded beaches. Visitors to Lombok can see ancient Hindu temples and witness traditional Balinese ceremonies and fascinating rituals. Lombok can be reached by air from Bali or by first class ferry (2 1/2 hours) or by slower local ferries.

Northwest of Lombok are three small islands – Gili Air, Gili Meno and Gili Terawangan – each with superb white sand beaches, clear water, coral reefs and brilliantly colored fish.. These islands are the best areas sites for snorkeling and diving in Lombok. These islands can be reached in 10 to 15 minutes by outrigger boat from Bangsal harbor. The only means of transport in these islands are carts towed by ponies.

Novotel Lombok

Novotel Lombok is located on the southern shore of Lombok island on the white sandy beach of Kuta – Putri Nyale. It has 85 deluxe rooms (30 with terrace) and 23 bungalows, all with private garden and terrace. All rooms have air conditioning, private bathtub or shower, mini bar and satellite television. The hotel has restaurants, bars, swimming pools, a fitness center and spa.

South Lombok is among the best dive sites in Indonesia, and this is exclusive to Novotel guests. The hotel’s range of water sports allows visitors to discover the untouched and beautiful southern coastline of the island. The Novotel offers a four wheel drive excursion to the heart of Lombok and to inaccessible traditional villages and idyllic beaches.

Senggigi Beach Hotel

Located on the beautiful beach shaded by coconut palms, the Senggigi Beach Hotel is situated among beautiful lush tropical gardens.
