‘Off the grid’ is a somewhat overused description for hotels that, in some cases, are actually very near to the grid, but in this case, it’s the real deal. Jeeva Beloam is little more than a handful of spacious beach houses on Lombok's remote southeast coast, and isn’t somewhere to come if you’re looking for a vast array of nearby sights and diverse dining options. However, if all you want is a cosy, enclosed bungalow where you can spend hours staring towards the raw horizon and listening to the crash of the waves break through the stillness, this is the place.
The fantastic restaurant overlooking the sea serves exceptionally fresh, locally-caught fish, along with eggs, poultry and veg produced in the local village. Beach barbecues are frequent, along with picnics and camp fires. There’s no pool, but you really don’t need one; the camp’s sheltered cove often has good swimming conditions. Top notch diving can be found nearby, along with ideal environments for snorkelling, sea kayaks, fishing, biking and nature trekking. And, of course, you can just relax on the beach or with a massage at the spa.
Beside an isolated, bijou beach on Lombok’s remote south east coast, about an hour and a half’s drive from the airport, this resort epitomises the concept of coastal seclusion.

Discover what to expect from staying at Jeeva Beloam Beach Camp
Much as we love immersing ourselves in the bustle of the big cities and soaking up the associated atmosphere and buzz, there’s nothing quite like finding somewhere genuinely out of the way to revive boy, mind and soul. Finding those truly secluded places is a bit of a passion of ours, and when you experience somewhere like Jeeva Beloam you’ll understand why. The stillness is absolute, the serenity is nourishing and the scenery is beyond superlative. Our kind of retreat, completely.
Relax on the resort’s beach, in the library lounge, or by the fire pit in the evening. Treat yourself to a massage at the spa, go biking or trekking in the Tanjung Ringgit landscape, or get out onto the water to snorkel, surf, kayak or go fishing.
Accommodation is styled after traditional Sasak fishing camp houses, built from recycled wood and bamboo with thatched roofs. Because the camp is off the main grid and relies entirely on solar power, electricity and air conditioning is restricted to certain hours.
We won’t be taking you to each of Indonesia’s 17,500 diverse islands, but this trip will have you exploring four of Indonesia’s islands - Java, Kalimantan, Bali and Komodo. From cruising the jungle waterways of Kalimantan’s rainforest and spotting orangutans, to soaking in the culture in Java to a few days relaxing on Bali and Komodo island - this is a trip full of beautiful contrasts.
