Gorgeous Lombok delivers the best of Indonesia on a plate—think miles of white sand beaches with warm turquoise waters, great surf, epic diving spots and a lush green interior just calling for you to take some pictures of it. Lombok holidays will have you smiling from the moment you arrive.
Before anything else, explore the enormous Gunung Rinjani volcano. Its towering peak is hard to miss and a climb to the top is rewarded with hot springs and a crater lake. It's a landscape like no other—an ideal spot for capturing amazing nature shots or taking the best selfie ever.
While you're on your feet, wander the island's many walking trails through dense jungle terrain that's teeming with life. Venture through picture-perfect rice and tobacco fields and explore the remote villages of the friendly Sasak people. The culture of the indigenous Sasaks is an intriguing blend of Balinese and Islam that's unique to Lombok.
Back on the coast, snag one of Wotif’s Lombok car hire deals to get around at a more relaxed pace—as well as to travel to all the island's beautiful beaches. You'll find many sheltered spots perfect for learning to dive or surf, as well as ample sandy stretches ideal for sunbathing and relaxing.
Lombok holiday packages aren't just an opportunity to bag some terrific bargains they're also cultural excursions. Open-air markets in Senggigi, Kuta, the capital Mataram—and many points in between—are a must for local arts and handicrafts. The women of Lombok hand-weave colourful, beautiful fabrics, and the money you pay for their handicrafts goes directly to their families and villages. Mataram is also home to the island's modern shopping centre.
Lombok is heaven for seafood lovers, and restaurants all over the island serve plates piled high with fresh fish caught that day from the island's warm waters. Book one of our Lombok packages and explore Ampenan, near Mataram, for a slew of restaurants and food stalls plating up authentic Indonesian cuisine. It's cheap, filling and packed with flavour! Not into doing as the locals do? That’s OK. Kuta and Senggigi have most of the island's fine Western restaurants, so you’ll never be far from something familiar.
You’ll enjoy a relaxed, welcoming nightlife on your Lombok holiday. Watch the setting sun sparkle off the ocean as you kick back with a cocktail in the comfortable beach bars of west-facing Kuta and Senggigi. Later on, you can catch up on a favourite movie—several restaurants screen them outdoors—or dance to live music in one of several bars. Later on, cruise the resorts around Senggigi, where you'll discover the island's buzzing clubs and discos.
