Wake-up to the sounds of the tropics in this idyllic Indonesian resort: native birds calling in the lush rainforests, turquoise waters lapping up on the golden sand and the breeze skipping through the palm trees. Sound too good to be true? Well it isn’t. This is just the start of great things to come at The Oberoi. With a gym, swimming pool, private beach and spa, it is a certainty that you will head back to reality feeling totally refreshed.
This stunning hideaway is set in acres of lush tropical gardens, glistening ocean and gilded sands along a private beach. Verdant rainforests and sparkling ocean views abound at this idyllic garden resort. The beautiful surroundings lend themselves to many activities, including, riverside treks to the Rinjani National Park, Snorkelling on Gili Islands Reef and trips to Tanjung Market by Pony & Cart.
Thatched roof villas and terraced pavilions are scattered around the gardens and have traditional Indonesian crafted furniture and artwork. Soak in the sunken bathtub, snooze on the large four-poster bed or chill-out in your private courtyard with rock pond. The villas and pavilions have expansive, shaded terraces to relax in, while you peer out at beautiful gardens or beaches. All the villas and terrace pavilions offer spacious bedrooms.
Why we like it
Our Oberoi Lombok highlight and recommendation has to be a boat trip to the Gili Islands with a picnic basket and a snorkel in hand to see the amazing array of coral fish.
