Lombok’s tourism industry collectively held its breath when local newspaper The Lombok Post announced that “Jetstar Airways Will Resume Australia – Lombok Flights Soon” in their 23 July 2017 issue.
Jetstar previously operated direct flights between Perth and Lombok from September 2013 but cancelled the route just over a year later, in October 2014.
The article went on to discuss the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Jetstar Group and the Indonesian Ministry of Tourism aiming to “deepen cooperation on tourism and promote growth in international tourism to Indonesia”.
Following the success of the last two years’ programmes of classical music education and performances in Mataram, Season 3 of “Classical Music Comes to Lombok” will take place on 24 and 25 August.
Surabaya born pianist, Imma Setiadi, who has recently completed her doctoral studies at the Royal College of Music in London, and her British colleague and professor, Nigel Clayton, have agreed to return to Lombok for a third time this coming August to consolidate on the music education work they have done in the last two years.
SEMPIAK VILLAS... South Lombok’s Beautiful Secret!
The South Lombok coastline west of Kuta flows from one beautiful bay to the next until it reaches the beach of Selong Belanak, which stretches in a wide sweeping arc of white sand and dazzling turquoise sea.
Overlooking this glorious beach is Sempiak Villas – a collection of private villas discreetly tucked into the hillside and offering luxurious stays in a sublime setting.
Opened in January 2011, Sempiak Villas spans the hillside and beachfront at Selong Belanak, surrounded by natural foliage and landscaped gardens.
