And if you fancy just staying put?
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.
