IMMERSIVE DESTINATION EXPERIENCES
Located in Indonesia’s West Nusa Tenggara province, Lombok is known for its soft sandy beaches, colourful marine life and the mighty Mount Rinjani – Indonesia’s second highest peak. Given its proximity to Bali, the island remains remarkably untouched by mass tourism and its ability to offer a completely different, much more rural cultural experience makes it a contrasting counterpart for those visiting Bali. Lombok is much admired for its slow pace, the quality of the water – crystal clear, calm and perfect for swimming, and incredible scenery with forested mountains, paddy fields and coconut palms. Far from a fly and flop destination, guests of The Legian Sirecan snorkel, dive, trek and hike to their heart’s content, thanks to the varied landscape. The hotel is also adjacent to Sire Beach Golf Club – Lombok’s only international championship 18-hole course. Other activities on offer include, guided tours of the island’s waterfalls and a visit to Lombok’s oldest mosque – Bayan Belek – built in 1634. There will also be daily shuttle boats to the neighbouring Gili Air Island, exclusive for hotel guests.
Lombok is easily accessible with more than ten flights a day from Bali, as well as direct flights from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Perth.
Rates for a suite at The Legian Sire, Lombok start from $347++ USD (approx. £270) per night and $613++ USD (approx. £476) per night for the villas at The Club by The Legian Sire, Lombok.
