LOMBOK, INDONESIA – As the world wakes up and travelers begin to rediscover the wonders beyond their own borders, an enchanting Indonesian island is preparing to welcome guests to paradise with a wide smile and a host of eco-friendly activities world class.
Lombok is a tropical paradise that exudes exotic charm and serenity. Just across a sparkling sea from Bali, this verdant island is a vibrant adventure hub that allows lifestyle-conscious guests to unwind in a beautiful setting amidst a landscape of lush jungles, volcanic peaks, pristine beaches and cerulean seas. From mindful moments such as beachside yoga sessions, visits to spiritual temples, cultural encounters and rejuvenating spa therapies to invigorating activities such as surfing, snorkeling, water sports and jungle treks, Lombok is an island that soothes the soul and ignites the imagination.
For a truly exhilarating experience, the world’s best riders will head to the Mandalika International Street Circuit in Lombok from March 18-20, 2022 for the island’s premier MotoGP. This is one of a series of impressive new attractions planned for the Mandalika area, an eco-friendly economic zone that will be the focal point of Lombok’s emergence on the tourist scene.
Today, a breathtaking new resort is set to elevate the island’s travel and hospitality industry to spectacular new heights. Gran Melia Lombok Resort & Spa is a high-end, low-impact masterpiece of design that blends seamlessly into its tropical surroundings. Designed and created by Invest Islands, the Asian real estate innovator, this unique five-star retreat is perfectly positioned in Torok Bay, a sheltered, crescent-shaped stretch of sand framed by emerald headlands and glistening rice paddies.
Overlooking the Indian Ocean, just 25 km from Mandalika and Lombok International Airport, Gran Meliá Lombok will feature approximately 110 dazzling pool villas, including a collection of beachfront duplexes and more than 80 one-, two-, and three-bedroom hillside sanctuaries, all with private pools and panoramic views. Nestled amidst an expanse of native forest and waving palms, this striking new resort will also house a host of five-star facilities, including the two-story Waves Beach Club & Restaurant.
Each villa will be designed in an indigenous architectural style, with elegant curved roofs and vaulted ceilings, while being fully equipped with state-of-the-art technology, luxurious interiors, panoramic windows, expansive pool terraces and stunning ocean views. Sustainability is built into every aspect of the property, from the use of locally sourced organic materials such as bamboo, to energy efficient fixtures, rainwater storage and solar panels. This blend of chic design and sensible development will also create a one-of-a-kind investment opportunity for second home owners with a vision to look beyond Bali.
“Gran Meliá Lombok is a game-changer for the less-explored south coast of the island – finally a luxury option for those who don’t want to sacrifice comfort. Exceptional but not exclusive, it is a fusion of residence and resort, with private villas making it accessible to a wider market“, commented Jack BrownCo-founder, Invest Islands.
In keeping with the evocative spirit of Gran Meliá, the finest brand in Meliá Hotels International in Spain, this luxury resort will demonstrate an atmosphere of understated elegance at every touchpoint, from its extraordinary architecture and exceptional cuisine, to the warm and welcoming nature of the service. Even the smallest detail is infused with Spanish flair, while respecting and showcasing the island’s rich heritage.
While Gran Meliá Lombok is set to open in 2024, it has already received international recognition. The resort was named “Best Hotel Development” at the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards, which recognize the best real estate projects in a rapidly developing region.
In the post-pandemic era, domestic and international travelers will increasingly seek destinations that combine serenity and seclusion with plenty of activities and attractions. Accessibility is key, and Lombok enjoyed non-stop connections to cities such as Jakarta, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur before the disruption in global air travel. As the world starts moving again, Lombok will be served directly from many of Asia’s major gateway hubs, creating direct or convenient one-stop connectivity to the rest of the world. With a focus on responsible and sustainable development, the tourism industry on this idyllic island is perfectly positioned to thrive in the years to come.
