Lombok is an island to the east of Bali with a pristine natural environment and has become increasingly popular as a travel destination throughout the past decade. Its immense rice fields, rugged landscape and the famous Mount Rinjani volcano form part of the natural attractions of the island, which is surrounded by endless beaches and turquoise waters ideal for surfers.
The entire hotel has been designed as an authentic sanctuary for wellbeing. From the beachside YHI Spa offering relaxing rituals and treatments to the well-equipped fitness centre, Gran Meliá Lombok provides guests with everything they need to maintain their wellness routine. The hotel will also offer a kids club to keep children entertained and an extensive program of activities designed for the whole family.
In keeping with the Gran Meliá brand, the hotel will feature world-class dining options that combine the best local ingredients and techniques to offer guests authentic Indonesian dining experiences. The spacious lounge with scenic panoramic ocean views will provide the perfect setting for couples planning an exotic destination wedding.
Gran Meliá Lombok will become the second Gran Meliá brand hotel in Indonesia after Gran Meliá Jakarta, a flagship urban oasis nestled in the Golden Triangle of the central business district of Kuningan, in Jakarta.
“Our commitment to Indonesia, where we opened our first international hotel more than 35 years ago, is stronger than ever and we are extremely happy to sign this new agreement, an outstanding property that will become a destination resort in itself in Lombok and will further increase the prosperity of the entire community,” said Gabriel Escarrer, Vice Chairman and CEO of Meliá Hotels International.
