Beachfront luxury reimagined at this boutique retreat on Lombok’s north-west coast
Beside the sugar-white sands of one of Lombok's best beaches, Hotel Tugu Lombok offers guests a quirky take on traditional beachfront indulgence. Overflowing with oversized statues, funky antiques and age-old buildings, this hotel is unashamedly extravagant – a statement of flamboyance and originality, it's an eccentric homage to the ancient cultures and heritage of Indonesia.
Rich in character and personality, Hotel Tugu Lombok charms from the outset. Pull up to the carved wooden lobby and you'll be stepping into a history that dates back more than 100 years, while on a stroll through the grounds you'll pass by lotus ponds, open-air temple spas and even a cart-drawn afternoon tea. Head towards the beach and take note of the four giant Bhairawa statues standing guard at the infinity pool. Or look out for the giant Lombok rooster who crowns the poolside entrance to the hotel's all-day dining pavilion.
The bold and brilliant rooms are unlike anywhere else on the island. Where elaborate designs meets bespoke Indonesian style, more is definitely more here. Celebrate late 19th-Century Peranakan culture in an Ampenan Bungalow or head to a colonial-styled Aloon Aloon Garden Villa to indulge in a private palm-filled garden and sunken bathtub. The Mahabharata-themed Bhagavat Gita Oceanfront Suites are definitely worth the splurge, thanks to their uninterrupted sea views and private plunge pools. Or opt for the extravagant Puri Dadap Merah Villa – a temple-styled villa with a petal-shaped pool, sea-facing spa and private rooftop dining area.
