Lombok special tip: Hotel Tugu Lombok

Beach of Sire, Lombok.
Here it is my Lombok sleeper. Hotel Tugu Lombok is located on the pristine, miles and miles of virgin white sand beach of Sire, on the northwest coast of the island. The hotel displays numerous artifacts from ancient kingdoms and the forgotten history of Lombok, which give the hotel a special, mystical atmosphere that makes it easy to forget daily workload and problems.

The Tugu Lombok offers also unique dining experience. You can eat anywhere - in the gardens, in a private cabin or even on the beach. Or get your most unforgettable experience by starting your day with having breakfast in the beautiful sunrise over the Mount Rinjani, on the traditional wooden dragon head boat. You’ll find your lounge and relax area at Lara Djonggrang Bar, which can be found in a traditional hut with hundred-year-old thick wooden benches and tables. Feel the atmosphere of a long old teak bar, oil lamps and semi-open bamboo windows and beautiful artworks. Enjoy sweet traditional tunes during the day and sensual lounge music playing in the evening with a brick-walled wine cellar.
The Spa at Hotel Tugu Lombok provides the ultimate experience to find bliss and wellbeing for the body and soul. A giant open-air temple spa room lit by oil lamps, with an extra-long spa bed for both spouses to enjoy treatment head-to-head, a giant jacuzzi bathtub with jets, hundreds-years-old relief of temples on display, a rooftop where yoga or meditation can be held next to the soaring tower of beautiful Singhasari and Majapahit statues as well as 180 degrees of oceanview, surrounded by palm trees. Don't dream about it, live it.

Expect a hotel that is different from Asian mainstream tourist hotels. Expect something special.
