A brand-new upscale resort – Wyndham Sundancer Resort Lombok – has opened its doors on the spectacular island.
The opening represents a long-term vote of confidence in the Indonesian island, after it was hit by a 6.3 magnitude earthquake earlier this year.
The quake killed nearly 500 people.
Wyndham Sundancer Lombok is an all-suite resort, offering one and two-bedroom suites, each with complimentary Wi-Fi, air conditioning, kitchen facilities and generous bathroom with shower and oversized bath.
All rooms at the resort have large balconies and the ocean view suites offer breath-taking views of Lombok Straits and the spectacular Southern Gili Islands.
Wyndham Sundancer Lombok is located on the doorstep of the Southern Gilis, a collection of 13 beautiful islands perfect for diving and snorkelling, with pristine white sand, crystal clear water and amazing reefs featuring arguably some of the best-preserved coral in Indonesia.
Guests can take advantage of a large lagoon-style pool with swim-up bar, three dining options, a day spa and wellness centre with its own juice bar, and an onsite dive centre to book diving excursions.
Food and beverage options include the all-day dining Sunrise Café and Sundancer Beach Club, along with the à la carte dinner restaurant, the Bukit, while guests can also get cocktails by the pool from the swim-up pool bar or pick up a healthy juice after a massage at the spa’s juice bar.
The Bukit can be converted to a 200 square metre events space that is well-suited to events of up to 150 people or weddings with 100 seated guests.
“Lombok is a wonderful destination – recent relief efforts perfectly demonstrate the warmth and kindness of the Indonesian people – and I have no doubt it will make a total recovery,” said Joon Aun Ooi, president and managing director, south-east Asia and Pacific Rim, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts.
International airlines offer direct routes from Singapore and Kuala Lumpur to Lombok’s airport, which is located 60 minutes from the resort.
