Sira Beach House - Villa aerial

The Locale

Pristine Sira Beach lies at the north-western tip of Lombok, Bali’s unassuming and unspoilt neighbour. Crystal clear, shallow water and near-deserted white sands make this beach ideal for swimming, beachcombing, jogging and fishing.

Just off shore, the three Gili Islands: Gili Air, Gili Meno and Gili Trawangan form an ellipsis to the Sira Peninsula and offer some of the best diving and snorkelling in the region. 

Mount Rinjani, one of the highest and most picturesque peaks in Indonesia provides a backdrop to Sira Beach House and, across the Lombok Straits, Bali’s Mount Agung rises majestically on the horizon. Local markets, dramatic waterfalls, craft villages renowned for their pottery, baskets and woven textiles, are all easily accessible courtesy of the villa’s car and driver, and the championship Kosaido Lombok Golf Course is just 1.5km along the beach.

Sira Beach House is approximately 90 minutes’ drive from Lombok International Airport, which has daily flights to and from Bali and other Indonesian cities, plus direct international flights from Singapore and Kuala Lumpur several times a week. Regular ferry services cross the Lombok Straits from Padang Bai in Bali, and the journey takes about 1.5 hours.

Things to Do

Your helpful villa manager has a wealth of information about nearby places of interest and will be pleased to organise boat trips, restaurant or golf bookings and arrange for the villa’s car and driver to take you sight-seeing. Do also talk to the villa’s friendly staff about the local area. Most live nearby and will be able to give an interesting insight into some of the fascinating aspects of Lombok life and culture.

In the meantime, here’s a taste of the many and varied activities on offer within reach of Sira Beach House.

Play a round of golf at the neighbouring Kosaido Lombok Golf Country Course – a serene 18-hole championship course with dramatic views of Mount Rinjani.
Go scuba diving or snorkelling in the crystal aquamarine waters of the Gili Islands, famed for their many sea turtles, or simply laze in a hammock on the white sandy beaches of Gili Trawangan, Meno or Air. Boats to the islands are easily organised.
If you are on for a challenge and have three days to spare, trek to the rim of Mount Rinjani, Lombok’s revered volcano. Alternatively, a daytrip to the waterfalls in the surrounding national park is well worthwhile and a good guide can be arranged if you want to venture off the beaten track.
Pamper yourself with an in-villa massage or spa treatment, or visit the lovely spa at Qunci Villas in Senggigi or The Oberoi Hotel just along the coast.
Go on a souvenir shopping spree to Lombok’s pottery, weaving and basketware villages, or visit Sweta’s Bertais market which sells pretty much everything made on the island.
Lombok is well known for its pearl farms. For loose pearls and pearl jewellery, visit one of the specialist retail outlets in Sekarbela near Mataram.
For a change of scene, eat out at the fascinating living museum, Hotel Tugu, or enjoy a gourmet dinner at the 5-star Oberoi Lombok.
Learn about Lombok’s cultural heritage on a visit to a traditional Sasak tribal village.
Horse carts, known as cidomo can be rented from the local village. Early morning visits to the market also provide a fascinating insight into the daily life of the region.
