Last week The Lombok Guide co-owner, Dian, together with three members from FOKUS photography at Mataram University, spent 7 days on Mt Rinjani volcano, photographing and filming the panoramas of this magnificent Lombok landmark.
Who would have thought, while camping by the lake at the top of the volcano, they would meet another team from popular Senggigi resort, Qunci Villas?!
• With the beautiful weather we’re having in Lombok, now is a great time to get out on the water with Hobie Cat hire now available at the Sheraton Senggigi Beach Resort.
The Sheraton offers a good range of water sports on the beachfront in Senggigi and has now purchased two Hobie Cats so guests can enjoy the experience of sailing these light-weight catamarans on the calm waters of Senggigi Bay; or you can even take a leisurely sail up the picturesque west coast.
Dawn is a quiet reflective time. It holds special significance for Australians and New Zealanders on ANZAC Day, the 25th April. For the second year, a group gathered on the beach at Senggigi to commerate Anzac day with a Dawn Service.
The term ‘ANZAC’ stands for ‘Australian and New Zealand Army Corps’. Every year on this day, Australians and New Zealanders remember and honour the men and women who served in wars to defend a way of life. And especially those who gave their lives in the fight.
Welcome to S Nunkoo, the new Executive Chef at the Sheraton Senggigi Beach Resort.
Chef Nunkoo replaces Lamberto Valdez Lara, Executive Chef for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide and Executive Chef at W SPA, who was working as a Consultant Chef at the Sheraton until March this year.
There’s more to the north coast of Lombok than climbing Mt Rinjani... for those looking for a change of pace in sublime natural surroundings, a few days in the north is a relaxing and rewarding escape.
Dominated by the majesty of Mt Rinjani and the surrounding mountain ranges, North Lombok offers stunning landscapes for travellers who like to go “off the beaten path”.
QUESTION: I have just met the girl of my dreams and we have decided to set up home together in a small rented villa in the popular tourist area of Senggigi.
My new girlfriend arrived last night with her suitcase and as she started to unpack, I noticed out of the corner of my eye she had a nurse’s outfit, a French Maid’s outfit and a police woman’s uniform.
Good day all! As I promised in the last issue, I am now on to something new in Lombok. Together with my beautiful wife, we are now the owners of the Gili T Resort and Terminal Restaurant on the lovely island of Gili Trawangan! Not bad for a crazy Canadian chef, eh!
Although I do miss my old team at Qunci Villas, I’m very happy with the staff I have here and am looking forward to raising the bar for food on Gili T.
