Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
North Lombok is perhaps one of the most dramatically beautiful locations you could imagine for getting away from it all. As you are driven along the coast from the airport, you are surrounded on one side by picture-book vistas of pristine bays lined with traditional Sasak fishing boats, and by a brooding, jungle-covered, active volcano on the other. This villa is far from civilization and, as a result, deeply relaxing.
The four-bedroom, The property is huge, occupying 1.5 hectares of palm-tree-jewelled, absolute beachfront land which was once a coconut plantation. Every few metres mature palms sway in the breeze, perfect stand-ins for extra fielders in an undermanned game of rounders or softball: hit a tree on the full and you're out! The main living pavilions are arranged around a 26m, jungle-style swimming pool, complete with Jacuzzi, waterfall and lots of lovely natural bends and curves, while the four, bedroom pavilions are set well apart from each other, deep within the gorgeous gardens.
The villa has a wonderful team of staff who are actively encouraged to 'get stuck in' with the guests. They will happily drop everything to take you kayaking out beyond the reef, or even make up numbers for a game of volleyball. Everything for your entertainment is here, from snorkelling equipment, a fleet of bicycles, board games, DVDs, satellite TV and a billiard table, to a car and driver at your disposal for tours of the island. Meals can be ordered from the menu, or the staff will be happy to take care of your grocery shopping if you'd rather self-cater (all food is on guest account).
But even with this great choice of things to do, the real focus at The property is the spectacular Sira beach - ideal for long lazy walks with lots of pretty shells to be combed from the powdery white sands. From the garden looking out to the horizon, or from the sea looking back to the mountains, you would be hard pressed to find a better looking stretch of sand anywhere else on Earth.
There are several flights per day from Bali to Lombok's new airport at Praya. The 25 minute flight takes in views of the mysterious island of Nusa Penida, the resplendent Mt Agung, and Lombok's west coast. There are also international flights from Singapore to Lombok with Silk Air.
Sira Beach (also spelt Sire), the longest white-sand beach on Lombok Island, is bordered by neatly planted rows of tall, swaying coconut palms with crystal waters lapping the soft, virgin-white sand. From the beach there is a panoramicista of the mountains, the coastline, the tiny port of Bangsal and the Gili Islands. The whole area is secluded, quiet and almost deserted bar a few neighbouring villas and some tiny hamlets. Located right beside the beach is the Lombok Golf Kosaido Country Club, a scenic 18-hole championship course open to the public. Tugu Lombok, an atmospheric, antique chic hotel with a restaurant and bar open to outside guests is just a few minutes' walk along the beach. The nearest settlement of any note is the small but charming market village of Tanjung, 4km away.
