Arguably even more beautiful than its sister hotel on the island Bali, yet quieter and more unspoiled, Lombok is an Indonesian gem just waiting to be discovered. Located on the stunning white sands of Sire beach and surrounded by peaceful green fields and traditional country scenes, Hotel Tugu is an idyllic luxury hotel where you can relax and unwind in this blissful environment. Singapore Airlines offers flights from Heathrow to Lombok with a stop in Singapore. Hotel Tugu is a two hour drive from Lombok airport, and transfers can be arranged with the hotel. Alternatively, Malaysia Airlines flies from Heathrow to Bali via Kuala Lumpur. Lombok is twenty minutes’ flight east of Bali or 2.5 hours on a speedboat.
In a beautiful beachside location and surrounded by an eighteen hole golf course, mountain views and lush green countryside, Hotel Tugu is the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday. With a philosophy of preserving the art and cultural history of the local area, this hotel offers a visually intriguing, romantic and very beautiful place to stay, in addition to all the comforts you would expect from a luxury hotel.
In traditional buildings just a stone’s throw from the beach, the beautiful accommodation is full of Indonesian antiques and artworks and will really envelope you in the spirit and history of the place whilst also providing all the modern luxuries. Features of the various rooms include private plunge pools with ocean views, private garden space, open air bathrooms with round bath tubs and oversized rain showers, huge, sumptuous beds, flat screen TVs, air conditioning and mini bars. Room Tip – All rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, but ocean front suites and those with their own private plunge pool are the most popular.
Dining is quite the experience at Hotel Tugu Lombok. In line with the hotel’s mission to “transport guests to the golden eras of Indonesian history”, the food celebrates the unique richness of Indonesian cuisine and the hotel offers some truly spectacular and memorable dining experiences. A romantic picnic breakfast with a sunrise view, a private barbeque on the beach or dinner under the moonlight at the top of the Hening Swarga temple – with breath taking ocean views – are just a handful of examples of how special a meal at Hotel Tugu can be. Dining here is sure to leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.
Pool and Activities
An elegant pool lined with white sun loungers and umbrellas sits right next to the beautiful white sand beach, with views across the crystal clear ocean. If you can bear to tear yourself away, there’s an excellent eighteen hole golf course nearby, while the hotel’s own spa is not to be missed. Located in the huge, open air Hening Swarga temple and lit with oil lamps, it’s a beautiful spot to enjoy treatments and massages, relax in the Jacuzzi tub while gazing out at the Indian Ocean or to experience yoga or meditation on the temple roof. There is also a wide variety of activities to take advantage of while staying at Hotel Tugu, from cooking classes to surfing and waterfall treks. You can be as active or inactive as you choose!
If you’re looking for ultimate peace and quiet and can be flexible about when you travel, try booking in September. It’s less busy than August but still falls within Lombok’s dry season.
Whether you’re interested in exploring Bali’s lesser known sister island or simply want a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings, Hotel Tugu Lombok is the perfect destination.
