 Villa Almarik

Lombok Island, Indonesia, Asia

 

An Introduction to Indonesia

 

Villa Almarik is located on the island of Gili Trawangan, which is near Lombok, Indonesia.  Gili Trawangan is the largest of the three islands just off Lombok’s northwester coastline.  You will be picked up from the airport in Lombok and will be able to enjoy a scenic 2-hour car ride and then a short 30 minute boat ride will take you to paradise!  This beautiful island is quickly becoming one of Indonesia’s best kept secrets.  The island is surrounded by clear blue water, and beneath those waters are underwater coral gardens.  Topside, you will be surrounded by lush tropical gardens.  No cars are allowed on the island, so your adventurous side can truly be inspired as you explore the island either by foot or horse-drawn carriage.

Villa Almarik has 20 well-appointed cottages.  Each room is decorated with traditional furnishings and ultimately with your comfort in mind.  There is a large swimming pool that is tucked beneath the palm trees – a perfect spot to relax and read a great book!  There is also a restaurant on site, with a mix of Indonesian and Mediterranean to please any palate.  All meals are prepared with fresh local produce, which means unique flavors you will not find anywhere else!

It is said that one should not leave Villa Almarik without experiencing one of their indulgent, traditional style massages at The Spa!  Their specially trained therapists can treat you in the Spa itself, or come to your room.  Either way, it’s the perfect way to wind down from a day of diving or hiking.

Suite Amenities include:

  • Air conditioning
  • Spacious living area
  • A private terrace
  • A traditional outdoor courtyard attached to the bathroom
  • IDD telephones
  • Satellite TV
  • Mini Bar
  • A Balinese Bale (elevated lounging area)

Scuba Diving in Indonesia is said to be a world class experience.  There are over 3,500 marine species living in the reefs of Indonesia.  While staying at Villa Almarik, you will have the chance to dive with Gangga Divers, a PADI 5 Star Dive Center.  There are more than 25 dive sites located around the 3 Gili’s (Gili Air, Gili Trawangan, and Gili Meno).  There is truly a dive for everyone here – you will find slops, drop-offs, drift dives, and of course the incredibly rich marine life that Indonesia is famous for.   Depths range from 15 feet to over 100 feet and visibility is usually outstanding.  The dive boat at Gangga Divers are traditional outrigger style boats.  Each boat is equipped with O2, fresh towels, fresh drinking water, fruits, and a soaking tub for cameras.  The dive sites are very easy to get to, with a boat ride of normally 25 minutes.  The boat leaves directly in front of the resort, and you are back with enough time to visit the spa or go for a hike.

An Introduction to Indonesia

Stretching between the Australian and Asian continental mainlands and dividing the Pacific and Indian Oceans at the Equator lay the exotic islands that make up Indonesia.

The name Indonesia has its roots in two Greek words: "Indos" meaning Indian and "Nesos" which means islands. It is an appropriate description of the archipelago (the world’s largest), as there are estimated to be a total of 17,508 islands of which only about 6,000 are inhabited.

Five main islands and 30 smaller archipelagoes are home to the majority of the population. The main islands are Sumatra,  Kalimantan,  Sulawesi,  Irian Jaya  and last but not least Java, home to 70 percent of the country's population.  Indonesia shares Irian Jaya with Papua New Guinea and two thirds of the island of Kalimantan with Malaysia and Borneo.

Indonesia is at the heart of the triangle of the world's greatest marine biodiversity, boasting more amazing diving destinations than anywhere else on earth. Not only is diving in Indonesia on every semi-serious diver's 'Must do' list but there are also many great places for less experienced but no less enthusiastic divers. Areas like Komodo and Raja Ampat are becoming known as among the world's best live-aboard destinations, adding to places such as Sulawesi and Wakatobi which are already established as world class.

Indonesia also offers many delights for non-divers. Visitors can marvel at the spectacular Prambanan temples in Java: enjoy ancient music while watching traditional dancers in spectacular costume: visit animated floating markets: experience a close ecounter with the famous Kamodo dragons, spend time with enigmatic orangutans in their natural habitat: hike volcanic cones, forests and mountains.
