Indonesia Escapes & Hideaways

Villa Almarik

Villa Almarik is on the island of Gili Trawangan, one of the three islands off the northwest corner of Lombok, Indonesia, renowned as a scuba diving spot. Originally home only to a handful of fisherman, it is surrounded by underwater coral gardens and covered in tropical blooms and trees.

No cars or motorbikes are allowed on the island. The hardest decision you'll have to make while you're here is whether to walk, cycle or take a horse-drawn carriage down the island's sandy roads.

Villa Almarik is only a short distance from an area alive with bars and restaurants where you can dance the night away or just enjoy the beautiful view of the mountains and sea as the sun sets and the skies light up with stars.

Lombok lies 54 kilometers to the east of Bali separated by a deep ocean trench that defines part of the "Wallace Line", dividing the flora and fauna of western and eastern Indonesia. Though relatively new to tourism Lombok is fast emerging as one of Indonesia's best kept secrets.

Gili Trawangan is the largest of the coral ringed Gili Islands, just off Lombok's Northwestern coastline. The islands are a diver's paradise while Lombok's rugged countryside and in particular the awesome Mount Rinjani or Tetebatu offer some fabulous trekking and beautiful scenery for the more adventurous.

The Rooms
Villa Almarik has 20 simply and elegantly appointed cottages. Each is air-conditioned and has a spacious living area, a terrace and a traditional outdoor courtyard attached to the bathroom. Each also had IDD telephones, satellite TV and a mini-bar and is finished with traditional furnishings. A Balinese bale (elevated lounging area) completes each cottage.

Villa Almarik is the only resort in Gili Terawangan that provides hot and cold water showers with desalinated fresh water.

The Restaurant
Villa Almarik's restaurant offers a mix of Indonesian and Mediterranean dishes, prepared with fresh local produce.

Spa and Wellness
The Villa Almarik offers traditional-style massages by specially-trained staff, including a range of treatments that can be either taken in the spa or in the privacy of your own room.
