Lombok, Bali’s adjacent island to its east, has always been in the shadows of Bali, the behemoth. Lombok is considered Bali before modern tourism, with its natural beauty as its main draw. Smaller than Bali, both in size and population.

There are more beaches with powdery golden sand than Bali, and its waters and islands (the Gilis)have attracted the world’s surfers and divers. And just like Bali’s Mount Agung, Lombok has its own majestic peak – Mount Rinjani – with the crater lakes. A popular hiking and trekking destination. And accommodations are sprouting across Lombok’s west and southern coasts in all styles and price ranges. Eco-friendly hotels are making inroads as well, as seen at Dolphin Eco Lodge.

At first look, you’d expect to see such structure in Tulum in Mexico, or Lamu Island in Kenya, the thatch roof and unfinished wood in its natural state seem to point out the striking similarity. But it merely paints the idyllic setting that Dolphin promises.

Enjoy the tranquil life that is typical for the tropics. Far from crowded tourist spots you can take a boat-trip to the islands located in the bay or experience the breathtaking view over a unspoilt tropical bay to our volcano Rinjani.

Even long term-rental under economical conditions is possible. Of course we help you to get the appropriate Visa for your stay.

Southwest Lombok
The roads in South West Lombok are well maintained, and the scenic drive from Mataram or Lembar is fairly relaxing. The transport price depend on your talent in bargaining and therefore can vary quite a bit. If you calculate around USD 15 you should be able to find a car and driver without to much problem. In any case, make sure you arrange the price before the journey starts.

Until recently, due to its challenging reef breaks at Bangko Bangko and Dessert Point, South West Lombok was only known amongst surfers. Now this paradise has also been discovered by Scuba Enthusiasts and vacationers searching for white beaches and relaxation.

But not only travelers have found a new interest in South Lombok. Also now hotels and other tourist oriented businesses are slowly developing in the south of Lombok. For example the 5 star resort “Sundancer” is due to open in 2007.A scenically spectacular highway follows the inside coast of the foot like southwest peninsula of Lombok.
