The best places to stay in Lombok

Lombok is famously beautiful both in and out of the water. There's spectacular diving, big surf breaks off the south coast, and the coastline has beaches as near tropical idyl as you can imagine. For years Lombok has been touted as the next major island destination, and with the new international airport has come a greater diversity on the list of the best places to stay on Lombok.

Lombok is an amazing spot for divers and snorkelers. The famed Gili Island group is just off Lombok, rising out of warm, turquoise waters bustling with beautiful sea life. The deepwater reefs slightly further out are home to sharks, rays and friendly turtles.

Lombok's coastline varies from dramatic volcanic headlands to pristine white sand. The southern coast is becoming famous for its surf breaks.

As well as being a playground for divers and surfers, Lombok is also a great destination for people who want to trek through rainforests. Inland is spectacular Mount Rinjani - Indonesia's second largest volcano - and the crater lake, Segara Anak, surrounded by exotic wildlife, including leopards, cats, monkeys and barking deer. The volcanic landscape is dotted with tempting natural hot springs in tropical settings to rival the best spas.

Lombok's local food is also a highlight. The best places to stay in Lombok offer plenty of new dishes to try and the island is verdant enough to grow almost anything, if you stroll inland you'll see the wonderfully evocative rice paddies and the fields of tobacco. Then of course there's the fresh seafood…
