Consider the tranquil island of Lombok for that perfect honeymoon or romantic getaway.
What to do and see in Lombok
Lombok provides all the ingredients you need for a perfect island honeymoon. Relax on the sweeping expanse of white-sand beaches at Senggigi and Kuta or snorkel and dive the nearby pristine Gili Islands.
Hike to enchanting waterfalls in Rinjani National Park, take a challenging two-day guided trek to the crater rim of Mount Rinjani (photo) at 2600m high and be rewarded with panoramic vistas overlooking Lombok.
Savour the quiet rural charm of Tetebatu and Sapit, two picturesque villages that nestle on the slopes of the volcano Gunung Rinjani.
Ride a horse-drawn cart along scenic country lanes, interact with the friendly Hindu Balinese minority and learn more about the indigenous Sasak people, who still maintain animist traditions within their unique culture – a blend of Hindu and Muslim beliefs.
While less-crowded (and boisterous) than neighbouring Bali, Lombok offers honeymoon couples a good range of resort accommodation, including the luxurious Oberoi Lombok, set in 9ha of manicured gardens and overlooking the idyllic and private Medana Beach (photo) on the northwest coast.
