1. Hotel Tugu Lombok
Located on the pristine, white sands of Sire beach and surrounded by peaceful green fields and traditional country scenes, Hotel Tugu is an idyllic, Hindu-inspired luxury boutique hotel where you can relax and unwind in a blissful environment. The hotel is located 2km from Lombok Golf Kosaido Country Club and 7km from Bangsal Ferry Terminal.
The suites, villas, and bungalows that become home during your stay are housed in traditional and colonial-era huts. They are beautiful rooms, individually furnished with Indonesian antiques, that perfectly represent the hotel’s philosophy of preserving the art and cultural history of the local area. Although all the rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, the oceanfront suites and those with their own private plunge pool are the most popular.
A vast elegant pool lined with white sun loungers and umbrellas sits right next to the beautiful beach, and neighboring this tropical haven is a seaside 18-hole golf course. The open-air temple spa offers a truly beautiful and unique spot to enjoy treatments and massages; relax in the Jacuzzi tub while gazing out at the Indian Ocean, or practice yoga or meditation on the temple roof. The hotel also lay on a range of activities, from cooking classes to surfing and waterfall treks – you needn’t be short of things to do unless you’d prefer it that way of course!
Dining is quite the experience at Hotel Tugu Lombok. Delectable Indonesian cuisine is served in 6 romantic locations around the hotel; how about a romantic picnic breakfast with a sunrise view, a private barbeque on the beach, or dinner under moonlight on the roof of the spa temple? Paradise never tasted so good!
