A rainy day can spoil your beach plans, so head to our favourite rainy day hangout – Lombok Epicentrum Mall – and forget the grey skies outside!
The Epicentrum, on Jalan Sriwijaya in Mataram, is a spacious and modern shopping mall with a fantastic selection of food, beverage, retail and entertainment outlets spread over four floors (basement, ground, first and second levels).
• Local media, including the trusted Indonesian news source antaranews.com, are reporting that Garuda Indonesia will commence operating a new direct international flight between Lombok and Guangzhou in China.
Garuda Indonesia, working with the Provincial Government of NTB, are said to be keen to capture the lucrative Chinese market, which is currently the second highest source of tourism arrivals into Bali (after Australia in number one position).
Guests at Quah Restaurant in Qunci Villas were treated to a magnificent gourmet dinner prepared by MasterChef Indonesia winner and celebrity chef, Lucky Andreono, together with Qunci resident chef, Gianluca Viscaglia.
The 7-course Italian-Asian degustation dinner, accompanied by Australian wines from sponsors Panca Lombok Niaga and Rawson’s Retreat, was another successful event in Qunci’s ‘Chefs in the Wild’ series.
