There’s more to Indonesia than Bali. While we’re rejoicing at the recent announcement that The Land of Gods is set to reopen to international tourists in October, after valiantly fighting the Covid-19 pandemic no less, we also can’t wait to explore other destinations within this island nation once the international travel restrictions are lifted.
Indonesia has so much to offer. Take Lombok for instance, the island is often overshadowed by Bali but that’s what makes the destination even more alluring. Lombok has all the makings of a quintessential picture perfect island paradise – the talcum powder soft sand, shimmering azure waters and a calmer island vibe.
This Father’s Day, we want to cure the irrepressible wanderlust by giving you a chance to win a 3 days/2 nights stay at The Oberoi Beach Resort, Lombok for two (worth RM5,000).
Some 90 minutes’ drive away from the Lombok International Airport, the resort sits on a 24-acre beautifully landscaped garden at the secluded and pristine Medana Beach on the north-west of Lombok. Nearby, the three Gili islands that are renowned for its majestic beauty charms even the most discerning traveller. We hear the marine life here is nothing short of spectacular and the giant sea turtles are in abundance.
While nothing can beat the beauty of Nature, the infinity pool at this property is an absolute pièce de résistance with exquisite views. If you prefer privacy and some peace and quiet, check into one of the 12 luxury villas with private pool for the ultimate indulgence. The luxury villas are spacious and well-appointed with cosy and rustic interior, making it an ideal choice for honeymooners or families.
The bathrooms at the luxury villa are definitely worth writing home about, each generously decked out with a walk-in closet and luggage storage area, two vanity counters, separate stalls for shower and toilet, and a marble sunken bath.
Besides the luxury villa accommodations, the luxury pavilions with garden or ocean views are designed to bring you enhanced comfort during your stay. Fitted with king size or Hollywood twin size beds, the elegant interiors is complemented by cosy furnishings and handpicked artworks. The sunken marble bath in the bathroom offers views of a private courtyard with bougainvillea and a lotus pond.
For satisfying meals throughout your stay, the Sunbird Café serves breakfast and lunch alfresco while Lumbung Restaurant is perfect for romantic dinners. Take your dining experience a notch higher at The Amphitheatre, where fine dining and traditional performances come together once a week for an unforgettable experience. Looking for the cool spot to while away the time with cocktails, fine wines, Lombok coffee, tapas and snacks? The open-air Tokek Bar is the place to be.
