This resort could be described as being a little quirky, but its location on the soft Senggigi Beach sands is unbeatable. Originally built as a family home by descendants of Javanese royalty, the resort’s decor has unexpectedly elaborate elements in places, and a homely, welcoming atmosphere. The villas at the secluded spa annex, just 2 km down the beach, are our favourites, as you have the surrounding tropical gardens virtually to yourself.
The rooms are decorated in traditional style, using carved wooden and rattan furniture and local textiles in a variety of vivid colours. The restaurant’s fresh local seafood is served, rather unusually, with a side of ballroom dancing lessons - there’s that quirky edge we mentioned! Salsa your way across the sand, lay back by the pool, treat yourself at the spa and enjoy a bit of offbeat beachside bliss.
On idyllic Senggigi Beach on the north west coast of Lombok, this bijou resort is perfectly positioned for romantic honeymoon moments and blissful spa relaxation.

We love luxuriating on golden sandy beaches as much as anyone, but we love an interesting backstory even more, and it doesn’t get much more unusual than a beach boutique run by descendants of royalty where you can learn to ballroom dance! It’s not just the novelty factor at play here, though; the warm welcome and sense of family history really adds something extra to the idyllic location.
Lay by the pool, wander along the gorgeous beach, practise yoga in the garden, learn a few ballroom dancing steps with dinner, and snorkel and dive in Lombok’s phenomenal marine habitat.
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.
