THINGS TO DO
Pak Putu, the villa manager, will suggest you places of interest and will arrange ad hoc transports and bookings.
Aside from enjoying doing nothing in one of the sunbeds of one of the 3 swimming pools or under the friendly shade of a mango tree, cosily stretched out in an antique Indonesian bed or under the gazebo alang-alang cool roof, enjoying the mesmerizing view of the ocean,
below are a few examples of what can be done while staying at Villa L:
- Indulge yourself with a massage in the villa.
- Board a chartered speed boat and visit one of the famous coral-fringed Gili Islands - Trawangan, Meno and Air - just off Lombok's north west coast, and enjoy unique sessions of scuba diving or snorkeling in the crystal aquamarine waters, famed for their many sea turtles. A short stay in these islands, where no car is allowed, will allow you to indulge in one of the many beach cafés or try a ride in a Cilomo (colourful cart pulled by a small local horse).
- Learn the cooking secrets of the Indonesian culture with a cooking class in Anggrek Putih, 10 minutes ride from Senggigi.
- Enjoy kayak guided tours throughout the southwestern islands including Gili Nanggu and Gili Lampu.
- Exercise your calves thanks to bike rides. If The Hill is very steep and more fitted for seasoned cross bikers, the less sportive or lazier guests can rent bikes in Senggigi and enjoy the stunning scenic coastal road north.
- Improve your surfing style in one of the famous shore-breaks in the south-western beaches near Kuta, or experience the best surf of your life in Desert Point, considered as one of the best waves on the planet.
- Explore the waterfalls and forests of the Rinjani National Park on a guided walk.
- Experience a 3-day trek to the rim of Mount Rinjani, the highest volcano in Indonesia, if you fell like having a sporting achievement to boast about when back in your home country.
- Practice your swing at the Lombok Golf Kosaido Country Club - a quiet 18-hole championship course on Sira Bay with dramatic views of Mount Rinjani, 20 km north of Senggigi.
- Eat out in one of the Senggigi restaurants on the beach, with seafood platters fresh from the Ocean or romantic Italian dinner barefoot in the sand.
- Improve your best Sinatra style in one of the Senggigi karaoke bars.
- Learn about Lombok's cultural heritage on a visit to a traditional Sasak tribal village and shop souvenirs and gifts - Sasak handicraft items (pottery, weaving and basketware), or pearl jewelry, with the well-known Lombok-farmed saltwater pearls.
