Lombok hotel expands with luxury villas

Mimi Hudoyo, Lombok (2009-10-21)

THE FOUR-star Vila Ombak hotel, located on Gili Trawangan island, 20 minutes from Lombok, Indonesia, is adding up-market villas to accommodate growing demand.

Soft-opening in 2011, the Ombak Sunset will offer 180 rooms and 20 pool villas.

Vila Ombak general manager Imam Wahyudi said: "There is growing demand from high-end FITs and honeymooners, which we cannot accommodate at Vila Ombak. Ombak Sunset is built to cater to these travellers."

He said the island, previously known as a backpacker's paradise, had gone up-market with European travellers dominating its client mix.

"We are just starting to penetrate the Korean and Japanese markets, especially for honeymooners and divers," Wahyudi said.

Vila Ombak currently offers 110 rooms with average occupancy of 72 per cent in 2008 and average room rate of US$75.
