What to Expect

Take in the sights of Lombok and the Gili Islands. Relax on the gorgeous beaches of this one-of-a-kind island. Pay a visit to the villages in the Puyung, Tetebatu, and Senaru areas. Stay in a spot off the tourist trail on Lombok's east coast. Snorkeling in the coral reef will also be a lot of fun.


Immerse yourself in the amazing scenery, rich culture, and incredible diversity of Indonesia's tropical Lombok island. Get off the beaten track as you spend time in rural villages, take a variety of transportation, meet lots of locals and discover the fascinating Sasak culture. From chilling out in beachside Sanur and the tranquil hill retreat of Tetebatu, to savouring views of the highly revered Mt Rinjani and relaxing on the magical Gili Islands, once you travel to Indonesia, you won't ever want to leave.

Day 1: Sanur

Om Swastiastu. Welcome to Bali. Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 18:00 on Day 1. You can arrive at any time during the day as there are no activities planned until this important meeting. Check with the hotel reception where and when it will take place, or check the reception notice boards. Start your adventure in Sanur, with a quick taste of Bali. Sanur is home to one of the best Balinese Night Markets.

Day 2: Tetebatu

Travel by minivan from Sanur to the port of Padang Bai. Then you'll take a fast boat that takes you from Bali to Lombok. Then take a bus to Tetebatu. On the way stop in at Puyung Village, located in central Lombok, a small village that you won't find in your guidebook. Enjoy a traditional home-cooked lunch in the simple home of a local family. The hill retreat of Tetebatu is situated in the centre of Lombok, at the southern base of Mt Rinjani, and boasts spectacular views.

Day 3: Labuhan Pandan

Enjoy a guided walk through lush rice fields and see how the region's farmers have tended the land for centuries, still using traditional water buffalo ploughs. Climb a little higher and pass through clove and coffee plantations and stop at a local warung to try some local coffee. Visit the local village of Pringgasela to learn traditional weaving and enjoy a delicious Sasak feast. In the afternoon return to the hotel, then travel to Labuhan Pandan on the East Coast of Lombok. This remote beachside location is little visited by tourists. Tonight we will stay in our bungalow accommodation amid the peace and quiet of the secluded coast.

Day 4: Labuhan Pandan

Take a trip out to the nearby coral reef and enjoy some fantastic snorkelling off the boat. Stop in at a secluded island for lunch with Mt Rinjani towering over Lombok. Tonight, eat a fresh seafood barbecue on the beach.

Day 5: Senaru

Travel by minibus around the spiritual centre and sleeping giant of the island, Mt Rinjani. Arrive around midday at Senaru, a small, rustic village nestled between the base of Mt Rinjani and the edge of the jungle. Take a guided tour of the local Sasak village to learn about the history and culture of these people who have long lived on the slopes of Mt Rinjani. Here our local guide is part of a female guiding association that trains and develops women in tourism. Here we also take a walk to the spectacular Tiu Kelep waterfall, passing by Singing Gila waterfall, and perhaps swim in the waters which are considered by the Sasaks to have healing properties.

Day 6: Gili Air

Continue to the west coast today by minibus. The Gili Islands are an archipelago of three small islands Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air. Transfer by small boat to Gili Air (approximately 30 minutes), where you can take in the breezy atmosphere and stroll down stunning white beaches that rival those of the neighbouring islands. Your hotel is about a 15-minute walk from the port. Your bags can be transported by Cidemo from the port to the hotel.

Day 7: Gili Air

The island is your oyster and today is completely free to relax or explore. Perhaps take in another snorkelling trip, or catch a ferry across to the other islands of Gili Air and Gili Meno and see who has the better beaches. This evening, feast on a delicious BBQ dinner as you say farewell to your fellow travellers.

Day 8: Gili Air

Your trip comes to an end today. Perhaps extend your stay on the blissful Gili Air.
