Considered by many to be one of the best hotels in the world, this secluded and exclusive retreat fronts the golden sands of Medana Beach on the north-west coast of Lombok.
With towering palms reflected in mirror-like pools and panoramic ocean views stretching in every direction - the Oberoi, Lombok is a key destination for those seeking luxury and privacy of a new order.
The interiors of the 50 superbly appointed villas and pavilions marry the simple grace and charm of the local architecture - thatched roofs and pink-tinged limestone garden walls - with every modern comfort and convenience. Each villa has a courtyard with rock pond, a dining pavilion and terrace with either garden or ocean views. Many of the Luxury villas have their own pool. Terrace pavilions have large bedrooms, glass-walled garden bathrooms and a terrace for relaxation and dining.
Fine Asian and Continental cuisine is offered at the Lumbung restaurant which occupies an open-sided thatched pavilion with views across a reflection pool to the ocean's horizon. The beachside Sunbird Café is perfect for breakfast, light à la carte lunch or seafood grill in the evening.
Utterly tranquil and totally private, the Spa's open-air pavilions overlook carp-filled lily ponds. One of the signature treatments on offer is 'Mandi Lulur', a revitalising massage followed by a milk and honey bath. Sauna and steam rooms are available, also a Beauty Salon and Fitness Centre.
There is a 40-metre freshwater swimming pool, a tennis court and golf can easily be arranged at a local course. The Beach Club offers a number of watersports including snorkelling, PADI scuba diving and windsurfing. The dazzling coral gardens of the Gili Islands are just a short distance away by boat.
