And if you fancy just stay­ing put?

Cosmopolitan (South Africa) - - TRAVEL -

Book in for a week or two at Ho­tel Tugu Lom­bok, a lux­ury Aladdin’s cave of lo­cal art, crafts and ex­otic home­wares on Lom­bok’s north­west shore. It’s es­sen­tially a col­lec­tion of beau­ti­fully fur­nished pri­vate bun­ga­lows, each with its own out­door bath­room, plunge pool and, in some cases, can­dlelit fish pond. Here you can kayak around the coast­line, take a dragonboat tour at dawn to watch the sun rise over Lom­bok’s fa­mous Mount Rin­jani vol­cano or have your very own Ti­motei mo­ment on a day trip to the Sin­dang Gila Wa­ter­fall. The ho­tel can ar­range a per­sonal driver and guide to help you nav­i­gate the half-hour hike into the for­est, and he’ll then dou­ble as your per­sonal pho­tog­ra­pher as you splash around in the roar­ing wa­ter pos­ing for ‘can­did’ shots and mar­vel­ling at the work of Mother Na­ture.
