General

On Lombok’s unspoiled Sira peninsula, overlooking the celebrated Gilli Islands and with views of neighbouring Bali’s Mount Agung, can be found the perfect island escape. Situated within its own palm grove and glorious lawns, Sira Beach House is a fully-staffed beach front villa.

Pristine beaches and clear warm waters a few short steps away from the house offer guests snorkelling and diving, while the property boasts its own salt water swimming pool plus tennis court and backs onto the beautiful Kosaido golf course. The Tugu Hotel is a 10 minute bicycle ride away – or an easy 20 minute stroll along the beach – while the Oberoi , Lombok is a mere 10 minutes by car.

Introduction

Sira Beach House has been designed with the environment in mind. Great care was taken to maintain the existing mature palm grove, with the buildings carefully positioned between the trees. The materials and skills employed, including bamboo shingle and palm thatch for the roofs, river stone walls and coconut columns, were sourced locally where possible, and the hand-woven bamboo screens were made by local artisans. Furthermore, the house infrastructure is state of the art ecologically – the hot water is solar heated and the waste water is organically-treated and re-cycled for the lawns and the organic vegetable garden. The swimming pool, too, was designed to the best environmental practices: salt water, with a chlorination back up to maintain the highest standards. At Sira Beach House, we are committed both to preserve the natural beauty and balance of Lombok and its tranquil pace of life.

Conceived and designed by London-based Jane Taylor Designers with the help locally of Nexus Studio, Bali, the house is furnished with antiques and objets collected by Alistair, Lord McAlpine (Editor at Large of World of Interiors magazine). He says of the project “It was a joy to work on such a spectacular house” . Together, the Naga rustic tables, elegant colonial chairs, masks from southern India and rare Indonesian textiles meld with modern pieces specially designed for the house by Jane Taylor to create an atmosphere of relaxed luxury.

Lombok

If you’re looking for Beautiful Untouched Beaches, Enchanting Waterfalls, Perfect Surf Barrels, relatively few tourists and a Good Volcano Trek. Lombok and Mount Rinjani won’t let you down! The island is located between Bali and Sumbawa. Many still mistakenly imagine Bali to be a paradisaical island. The truth is, today, Lombok is The unspoiled Bali.

Sports & nature

Lombok's nature is untouched. The beaches are unspoiled. The waterfalls are still in secret locations behind the Monkey Forests.

Have you ever heard of Mount Rinjani? It's one of Indonesia's most challenging volcano treks, with breathtaking views of the Gili islands and the volcano's lake. The islands offer all the water sports you can imagine. Scuba Diving, Surfing, Kite surfing, SUP, Wake-boarding,... Yoga and Meditation retreats are also popular. The Gili's truly are Scuba Diving Heaven. The islands are surrounded by Pristine Coral Reefs, Green and Hawksbill Sea Turtles and a wide variety of marine species, these islands will blow you away, UnderWater.

The Scuba Diving is some of the best in the World. Lombok is located in the Coral Triangle. Where the biodiversity underwater, is the highest, worldwide. 50% more species are discovered here then in the Red Sea. Whatever you're looking for, Big or Small sea creatures, you have a very good chance of seeing it here.

Lombok's "mainland" is well- known amongst surfers for Bangko- Bangko. Desert Point has been rated numerous times as one of the best surf barrels in the World.

Nightlife info

After all the Water Fun, you can Play some Guitar on the beach, for what might just be the most Beautiful Sunset of your Life! Thanks to the uprising tourism, you'll be able to find some proper Italian Pizza's, Indonesian Rijst Tafels, New Zealand meat and the Freshest Fish straigh from the Morning Catch. Culinary Pleasures I do enjoy!International restaurants with foods from all over the world, can be found on the Gili Islands! The nightlife is wild on Gili T, mellow and laid back on Gili Meno and just right on Gili Air. Don't miss the Goa Parties on the beach! So much better then Full Moon Parties!The rest of Lombok is pretty laid back. Guitar on the Beach with a few fresh beers for Sunset. A game of Pool. Early to bed and early to rise makes and man healthy, wealthy and wise ! Like in every Asian Country, the locals do love Karaoke. Its worth sharing the enthusiasm for an unforgettable memory!

Culture and history info

The culture and history of the Sasak people. Culturally and linguistically, they are closely related to the Balinese. The majority practice Muslim faith and traditions, unlike the Hindu Balinese. Islam was first brought to Lombok by traders from Sumbawa.Before the Islam arrived, Lombok knew a long period of Hindu and Buddhist influence. Even today, Balinese Hindu culture remains strong, but in minority.The Dutch colonial government reinstated the Sasak rules, after the Balinese occupation. Some Chinese ethnicity and Indonesians from East Nusa Tengara practice Christianity in Lombok. To seek good fortune, traditional magic is practised.Have you ever heard of the Wallace Line?
