Want to know the most common questions and answers about The Lombok Lodge?
Here’s a comprehensive list of the 20 ‘Most-Questioned’ Questions about The Lombok Lodge, along with useful answers.

I’m staying in Bali before traveling to Lombok. It’s best to travel by boat or by plane to The Lombok Lodge?
Transfers from Bali to Lombok are indeed available by plane, as well as by fast boat.
Kindly find more details at

Traveling by plane is quick and agreeable and the drive from the airport to The Lombok Lodge is very enjoyable, as you will have the option to pass trough Lombok monkey forest or by the beautiful coastline. Travel to Lombok, our reservation team would be happy to handle the whole booking process on behalf of you. It is advisable to book well in advance to secure seats.

Where to stay on Lombok: The North or South Region?
If you do not know Lombok well, knowing where to stay in Lombok can be confusing.

If you prefer to visit the main attractions of Lombok Island as the beautiful Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep Waterfalls, the incredible Gili Islands (Gili Air, Gili Meno, Gili Trawangan), mighty Mount Rinjani or if you prefer to play golf, we would recommend staying in the North of Lombok.
Especially the North-West of Lombok, facing the Gili islands – the location of The Lombok Lodge – is the more upscale resort area of the island, where 5-star resorts, private beaches and golf courses dominate the landscape.

The main activities in the South are enjoying the beach and the sun, and taking advantage of some of the best surfing waves you will find in Indonesia.

For travelers who prefer to combine the North & the South of Lombok, we are happy to recommend our exclusive ‘North & South’ Lombok Accommodation Package in which you will combine the beautiful North of Lombok with the South of Lombok. Read more at

For travelers who choose for the North of Lombok interested in a day-trip to the South we offer a day-trips to the South by private car to explore Selong Belanak Beach, Merese Hill, Tanjung Aan Beach and Kuta Area.

What does ‘Rain Season’ mean for Lombok?
The climate in Lombok is equatorial, hot and humid with a rainy season between November and February, which reaches its peak in January/February, there is a dry season from March to October. The humidity can reach 75%.

Especially for the North of the island, the rain season doesn’t cause too much inconvenience. In the Northern part of Lombok we are lucky to have a rainy season and not a monsoon season, so an occasional short afternoon or evening downpour is what we usually get during our rainy season of November – February. Our dry season really starts around the end of April/May and ends with a sweltering October.
