Lombok ticks all the boxes for a charming and rustic beach break, but it also now rivals Bali for first-class style and service. Luxurious options are popping up in the northwest along the Sira Peninsula and Malimbu, which has a wonderfully untouched vibe. This area has white sandy beaches, cows strolling idly through coconut groves, sweet local villages with mosques humming with the call to prayer and a nearby golf course. You’ve got sunset views over Mount Agung in Bali, sunrise views of Lombok’s own volcano, Mount Rinjani, and the Gili Islands just a 10 minute boat journey away.
Lombok's best luxury hotels include Lombok Lodge, the Oberoi Lombok, Hotel Tugu Lombok, Jeeva Klui and Jeeva Beloam Beach Camp. Lombok also has some exceptional private villas for a luxurious family holiday; our favourites include Sira Beach House, Villa Sapi, The Anandita, Malimbu Cliff Villa and Sepoi Sepoi.
