The Oberoi Beach Resort, Lombok
A secluded north-west coast location allows The Oberoi to offers its guests complete seclusion. Lombok isn’t exactly overcrowded with holiday-makers, but this part of the island is particularly tranquil.
An open-sided pavilion in a coconut grove garden houses the Lumbung Restaurant, serving up fine Indonesian, Asian and continental cuisine alongside incredible views. The relaxed Sunbird Café is ideal for a beach breakfast or light lunch. The Beach Club offers snorkelling, diving, windsurfing and kayaking, or you can simply opt to relax on the hotel’s private beach or in the large infinity pool, which is fringed by palms and looks out to the nearby Gilis. In fact the views in general are stunning here; across to Bali, with distant views of the volcano.
The elegant, thatched-roof rooms are huge, dotted throughout the grounds in village-like clusters. Light and airy, they feature natural furnishings with local artwork, a private walled garden with sunken marble bath, and 24-hour room service. All room types are available with garden or ocean views. Spacious Luxury Pavilions are arranged in rows. Luxury Villas are even larger, each contained behind high stone walls for the ultimate in privacy, with a landscaped garden, rock pond, raised pavilion for dining and private terrace. Luxury Pool Villas also have a private 8x5m swimming pool.
