Lombok & Gili Islands

A more relaxed interpretation of Bali, what Lombok & the Gili Islands lack in the immediate facilities and developed infrastructure of its better known island neighbour, it makes up for by being quieter and less frenetic.

Sharing nearly every trait of Bali, such as the pleasant climate, marvellous beaches at Tanjung A’an and gorgeous Mount Minjani volcanic scenery, Lombok – accessed by a two hour boat ride from near Ngurah Rai Airport – offers it all in a more peaceful flavour.

For those seeking an even more tranquil retreat, however, the offshore Islands of Gili are perfect with its stunning blue ocean landscapes and marine-life rich waters which have established it as a primary diving and snorkelling hotspot.
