While Lombok has earned much-deserved fame for having some of Indonesia’s best surf, the island has more than strong waves and powder-soft sand. The landscape is rich in variety, from the misty peaks of Mount Rinjani to the palm-fringed shorelines of the Gili Islands. You’d be remiss to visit Bali without taking a short 30-minute flight to visit Lombok next door. Here’s where to stay on the island.

Bright shades of fuchsia and rose cover the scene at PinkCoco Gili Trawangan, rendering the whole experience a decadent one. Set on Gili Trawangan, the most lively of the three Gilis, this hotel is close to all of the small island action and is trendy as can be. Prime sunset views along with postcard-like visions of distant Mount Agung make the perfect backdrop, and with a self-described ‘sexy atmosphere’, it’s definitely unique.

An impressively designed network of glass-walled pools and decorative waterways are just one part of what makes Katamaran Hotel & Resort so iconic. With two plush seating areas, built right into the centre of the water, it’s the height of luxury. Located on the Mangsit beachfront, the property has 32 ocean view suites and 20 tropical pool villas. The open-air amphitheatre is usually occupied by the in-house band (yes, the hotel has a band) or a traditional performance.

Call a fully-restored antique joglo (Javanese style house) your home for the night at Kuno Villas. Thoughtful touches, such as cast-iron bathtubs and bespoke furnishings, are easy on the eyes – not to mention photogenic. The pool is reminiscent of a lazy river, stretching long through low-hanging foliage and rock boulders that look like they were plucked right from the jungle. If you’re looking for an aesthetically pleasing stay, this is the place.

The grounds are equipped with a yoga shala surrounded by rice fields, a day spa with holistic treatments, and surf lessons to boot.

Arch-shaped lumbung roofs lend to a classic tropical getaway feel at the Pearl of Trawangan, a hotel with both private pool villas and quaint cottages on the island of Gili Trawangan. Two swimming pools – one with a cascading stone waterfall – are ideal for soaking up the sun with a fresh coconut in arm’s reach. Just steps away lies the beach, backed by crystal clear views of Lombok’s Rinjani mountain range when the sky is free of clouds.

    The view of Lombok’s southern coast makes Selong Selo Resort and Residences unlike any other hotel on our list. Sitting on the mountainside above Selong Belanak Beach, this luxurious escape feels off-the-grid but spares nothing when it comes to indulgence. All of the two to seven bedroom villas come with their own kitchens, but you can also order hand-tossed pizzas via room service. Finish with an in-villa massage and call it a day.

    Since many travellers opt for Lombok’s southern coast, the northwest shores are quite reposeful – and that’s right where you’ll find Hotel Tugu. Like a museum of art, the hotel is filled with traditional Indonesian works, ranging from grand paintings to statues imported from countries such as Nepal, India and China. The rooms are no exception either. Intricate antiques fill the walls, complemented by deep blue plunge pools and outdoor ponds, shrouded in jewel-toned greenery.

    Set on Lombok’s west coast, just north of Mataram City, the Jayakarta Lombok Hotel & Spa is well-suited for families and working professionals. On top of the giant pool that rubs shoulders with the beach, there’s also a spa, meeting rooms, and an onsite restaurant dishing up both Indonesian and western favourites. All of their rooms have a pleasant view, but the beach front cottages are easily the best.
