This hotel is situated in central Sengiggi. With all the luxury and quietness , it’s all you need. And don’t forget the affordable pricing! We did stay there a few weeks and it wasn’t exactly a punishment!
The upcoming Christmas and New Year holidays have caused 80 percent of all hotels on the island of Lombok, just east of the resort island of Bali, to report completely fully booked weeks. Bookings are made by Indonesians as well as foreigners. On the famous Gili Islands almost all hotels and homestays are fully booked already.
Based on information gathered in the area, there are now some 3.000 tourists on Gili Trawangan. A big part of them are Europeans but there is also a fair share of Jakartans, Surabayans and people from Sulawesi. Owners of hotels and homestays say that most rooms are fully booked until early in the new year from today on. It is even expected that the number of tourists will increase in the few days before New Year’s eve.
Because this high number of visitors, drastic measures are taken to give them all a place to sleep. The main office in the village is now partly in use as temporary shelter for those who are not able to get a room on the island. It is also possible for them to be transferred to nearby Gili Air or Gili Meno. Senggigi, the normally quiet tourist village along the western coast, sees similar crowds flocking to the area.
Paradise on earth! That’s how the surf dudes name this unique spot on earth. Not only because of the mighty waves but also it’s nature. And of course the easy way of live of the locals who always welcome the tourists with a smile!
Tete Batu. Gelegen in centraal lombok, aan de voet van Mount Rinjani. We zijn er afgelopen zomer geweest omdat het zo’n prachtige omgeving is. Heerlijk een paar uur wandelen tussen de rijst en tabak velden en door de kleine dorpjes met haar vriendelijke bevolking.
Een aanrader voor iedereen en een locatie die niet mag ontbreken op het To Do lijstje voor Lombok!
