This month, Puri Mas Boutique Resorts & Spa will host the 10th Annual Lombok International Dance Sport Festival from 11 – 13 September.
Anyone who has attended the Lombok Dance Festival in previous years knows that this event is a once-a-year opportunity to become immersed in a world of graceful movement, swirling costumes and breath-taking performances by world-class dancers.
The BMKG NTB (Indonesian Agency for Climatology) is warning Lombok residents to prepare for water shortages in the coming months.
The agency says that parts of Lombok have been experiencing drought conditions since last May and that the rainy season, usually expected to start in November, may not start until December or January next year.
Lombok’s southwest islands are about to be put on the world sailing map when the World ARC yacht rally visits Gili Gede this month.
The yachts are expected to start arriving at Gili Gede from 7 September. Participants in the rally will moor at the superb natural harbour at Marina Del Ray on Gili Gede and have the chance to explore our beautiful southwest islands before attending a prize giving dinner at Secret Island Resort on 11 September.
Those staying on the south coast of Lombok can take their pick of spectacular beaches, whether it’s scenic Kuta beach in the centre of town, the rolling waves of Gerupuk to the east or the wide sweep of Selong Belanak to the west – south coast beaches are hard to beat!
One of our favourite beaches for a relaxing day out on the south coast is Tanjung Aan, around 5 kilometres east of Kuta.
