Soul of Beloam
If you’re looking for a unique and memorable experience, you must stay at Jeeva Beloam Beach Camp.
Jeeva Beloam, which means ‘The Soul of Beloam’, is a unique tropical beach camp that allows you to escape the madding crowds. This beautiful and rustic camp is located at the very southern tip of Lombok and faces a private white sand beach. Each thatch, bamboo and wood beruga cabin combines elements of a Lombok hunting camp with eastern Indonesian motifs to create a tranquil and serene Robinson Crusoe tropical experience. Jeeva Beloam Beach Camp is one of the few untouched places in the world where you can truly return to the rhythms of life. All berugas are equipped with a spacious covered terrace and large daybeds, an air-conditioned bedroom and an open-air bathroom. The resort is located in a secluded area of Lombok, two kilometres from Pink Beach and around two hours from the airport. You will be greeted on arrival by friendly and helpful staff, who will look after your every need throughout your stay. In addition to the dedicated service, Jeeva Beloam offers magnificent views, a beautiful beach clear blue skies as far as the eye can see.
Sleep in a Camp
There are 11 cabins, called Beruga Pantai, at Jeeva Beloam. They are traditional camp-style accommodations inspired by and modelled after a traditional Sasak fishing camp. The handmade oceanfront Berugas were built using recycled wood and bamboo, with alang-alang roofs. All Beruga Pantai have unfettered views over Beloam Beach, with its private cove, Alas Strait and the island of Sumbawa. Each Beruga Pantai is exceptionally large, with a total 60 square metres of covered living space providing unexpected comfort within a rugged camping environment. The Beruga Pantais boast a large oversized daybed on the covered terrace.The sleeping area is air-conditioned with a luxurious king-size mosquito-netted bed. A mix of coffees and teas is provided in the room with hot water provided daily. The bathroom and terrace areas are covered but are not fully enclosed. As electric power is limited, air-conditioning is only available in the evening.
Meals at Jeeva Beloam are served in a large open-sided tent that serves as the camp’s restaurant and central gathering area. Tenda Restaurant is located on a large sunbathing deck with views across the Jeeva Beloam cove to Sumbawa and Mount Rinjani behind the dining tent. Tenda offers an open menu for breakfast and lunch consisting of a mix of Western and Asian favourites. The dinner menu changes daily with two to three meal selections at each serving. All seafood dishes are catch of the day with each meal prepared using fresh fish sourced daily from local fishermen. Poultry is raised by local farmers who work closely with Jeeva Beloam to supply eggs and other poultry items on a daily basis, and vegetables are sourced in the nearest local market. Most dinner menus are prepared based on what is freshly available in the market that day. Tenda Restaurant will, as much as possible, accommodate requests by guests for special items or dishes depending upon the availability of ingredients. Tenda will also arrange beach barbecues, campfire roasts and other special meals.
Fill Your Days
There is a fantastic selection of activities at Jeeva Beloam. Each activity offers a unique experience and breathtaking sights. Jeeva Beloam is located on a private, sandy - bottomed cove where only the occasional fisherman visits. The cove is enclosed by a steep hill to the northwest and Beloam’s Umang Island to the southeast. Jeeva Beloam’s two white-sand beaches, the north beach and the south beach, are located on the west side of the cove facing Alas Strait and are separated by a rocky headland. Swimming is best off the south beach and on the cove side of Umang Island. The ‘sea pool’, located at the southern end of the north beach, is marked by buoys and is surrounded by nets.
Snorkelling and Diving
You can snorkel or dive off the beach in front of Jeeva Beloam. A variety of colourful tropical fish live in the rock and coral gardens in the southeastern section of the cove in front of Jeeva Beloam and between the south beach and Umang Island. The mixture of sand and coral on the seabed in this area provides an excellent hiding place for fish of all kinds. Tangsi Beach, Semangkuk, Pulau Tiga and Ekas Bay are the best spots to snorkel and dive.
Nature Walk and Trekking
On any walk around the Tanjung Ringgit peninsula in the vicinity of Jeeva Beloam you should expect to see a variety of tropical flora and wildlife, including monkeys, monitor lizards and civet cats. You may also meet domesticated goats or water buffalo grazing in the small open meadows around the area. A magnificent view of the sunrise over the mountains of Sumbawa and Alas Strait is just a 10-minute walk away to the top of the headlands on the north side of Jeeva Beloam beach. Around 6am, the morning sun burns off the clouds that surround Lombok’s Mount Rinjani, allowing for spectacular views from Jeeva Beloam of Rinjani’s two cones towering over the landscape. For the more adventurous, a five-kilometre morning trek will take you to the lighthouse and the tip of Tanjung Ringgit, where the sunrise over Alas Strait colours the high cliffs at Air Undur and highlights the full majesty of Mount Rinjani across the calm waters of Teluk Temeak.
Biking, relaxing, reading, sunbathing, picnics on deserted beaches, massages and yoga are all available right outside your door. If you want to relax, this is the place. Jeeva Beloam is recommended for anyone looking for a quiet escape and private time to clear away the stresses of the big city.
