Lombok Holidays: An Overview

Sitting just to the east of famous sister island Bali, Lombok is undoubtedly Indonesia's up-and-coming beach destination. The island is dominated by Gunung Rinjani - Indonesia's second highest volcanic peak - and fringed by powdery beaches and coral atolls, included the white sand droplets of the Gili islands.

Miranda, Katie and Carrie are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Golden sand beaches with a laid back vibe
  • Visit sea turtle hatcheries on the idyllic Gili islands, or don a mask and fins to snorkel with them in their home reefs
  • Fiery local food - Lombok is known as the island of the chilli, boasting the locally grown and loved taliwang chilli - birds eye's have nothing on these guys.

Luxury Holidays to Lombok: The Detail

If you are looking for light sandy beaches without the crowds, Lombok is the perfect choice, and the island is blessed with a growing collection of class boutique hotels. Relax on its picturesque shores, snorkel and dive vibrant reefs, surf the breaks just off shore, and enjoy the freshest seafood, straight off the boat.

Heading inland, Sasak villages, many of which expertly create pottery and textiles, sit within lush forests, tobacco and rice fields. There are beautiful temples to explore, alongside cascading waterfalls, and the fertile slopes of Gunung Rinjani. Climbing to the crater rim of this active volcano is possible too, where the reward is a breath-taking view of the turquoise crater lake, 'baby' volcano, and even straight across to Bali on a clear day.
