One year after Bali’s neighboring island of Lombok was rattled by a series of devastating earthquakes, we are pleased to advise that business on Lombok Island as well as on the famous Gili Islands has almost completely recovered. The Gili Trawangan jetty was destroyed during the earthquake and has been replaced with a temporary floating jetty until the main pier is restored. All fast boats have been operating to their usual schedules since the end of 2018.
Mount Rinjani National Park reopened for trekking tours to the crater rim in July 2019 while park authorities continue to restructure trails leading to the summit. Sendang Gile Waterfall in North Lombok remains closed until today, with access to Benang Stokel Waterfall currently not possible using larger vehicles such as minivans or buses.
We are delighted that all of our preferred hotels including the Karma Reef Resort on Gili Meno, the Sudamala Senggigi, the Oberoi Lombok have reopened again and are fully operational. The Legian Sire Beach Lombok and The Kayana Beach Lombok are two highly anticipated new hotels expected to open their doors later this year.
