Lombok Island, Indonesia, Asia
|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!
