This luxury resort is a little corner of paradise located on Medana beach, opposite the Gili Islands on the Northwest coast of Lombok. Families will enjoy the idyllic 24 acre garden with hundreds of beautiful grown up trees and the numerous sports and recreation activities available at the Beach Club.

Accommodation is either in 90 m2 pavilions or in one or two bedroom private villas, most overlooking the sea. The bedrooms are elegantly appointed and the spacious bathrooms are particularly pleasant with their marble sunken baths. The breakfast at the Lumbung main restaurant is incredibly copious and kids will enjoy the extra attention from the serving staff as well as the children’s menu.

Some of the complimentary activities of interest to families are the afternoon tea with local sweets, internet access, local horse and cart excursion to the local market, use of tennis court and gym, putting green, sea kayak and windsurfing, snorkeling equipment, mountain bikes and painting or yoga lessons. Outside the hotels families can choose from a variety of ecotourism activities such as treks around the Rinjani volcano to stunning waterfalls and natural pools. Day trips to traditional villages producing local handicrafts such as pottery, Ikat weaving or carving can be organized by the hotel.

The Oberoi Beach Club has a PADI dive centre for snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing and deep sea fishing. Cruises to the Gili islands and sunset cruises can be organized. The 40 m arced swimming pool at the front of the resort is spectacular. At the open-air amphitheatre by the beach, lit by candlelight, buffet dinners are served in high season with traditional sasak music and dance performances. Staying at The Oberoi Lombok is a treat for families who want to enjoy luxury and a high standard of service in a natural stunning setting.
