Sira Beach House
Sira Beach House is a sublime, 6-bedroom beachfront villa in Lombok set within six acres of coconut grove facing the white sands and turquoise waters of pristine Sira Beach. Beautifully crafted from local materials and embellished with fascinating art and antiques, this eco-friendly villa makes full use of environmental technologies to create a low impact, authentic Lombok experience. With an 18-metre pool, tennis court, water sports equipment, media room and projector screen on site, and the fabulous Lombok Kosaido golf course just moments away, families and groups will find plenty to keep themselves amused in this fully staffed tropical island escape.
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 Lombok Golf Kosaido Country Club – 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.
