Luna2Hotel in Seminyak
Being new, the facilities were all immaculately tended to with a private pool for those who choose the Pool Villa, and a shared pool facing the ocean with amazing views of the sunset. Full privacy and wonderful comfort! You can request the reception to help you rent a scooter, or borrow bicycles from them. Scooter ride to the main Senggigi area took about 10mins, and if you continue past the Senggigi town area, another 5min ride will bring you to a stretch of seafood restaurants with tables on the beach. Riding in the opposite direction for 12min, you will come to a large stretch of BBQ stalls selling local delights and grilled seafood/chicken, they open around 6pm till late.

A mere stone’s throw away from Bali across the deeply cut channel is Lombok, a different, drier world that is like an exploded version of the Bukit Peninsula on Bali, just without the 5 star hotels. The real touristy feel is reserved for the Gili’s way up the north of the Lombok Strait, which feed off huge swells and NW winds, but there are further possibilities for surf along this west coast north of Sengigi and amongst the serene islands nestling behind Bangko Bangko. The south coast is cliffy and rocky, with lots of little islets and punctuated by a few really deep bays, which give Lombok way more flexibility in regards to swell size and beginners waves. It’s hard to suss the waves from the charter boats, who have their usual stops, but rarely find the time to explore, so there are some quiet corners along this coast for sure.
At its closest point, Lombok sits only 18km (11mi) east of Bali, yet major physical, cultural, linguistic and religious differences exist. The deep strait separating these islands links the Indian and Pacific oceans and is part of the “Wallace Line”, an established physical division between Asia and Australia. Bali is green with lush, tropical vegetation, while Lombok is drier, more rugged, with completely different flora and fauna. While the mountainous north rises to 3726m (12,224ft) at the top of Mount Rinjani, the south is a range of low inland hills spread behind the sweeping bays and pure white sands of the southern beaches. In terms of location, most surf breaks are truly breathtaking, but are generally regarded as of lower quality or intensity than Bali’s, with the notable exception of Desert Point, elected “Best Wave in the World” by Tracks magazine’s readers. More than any other island in Indo, Lombok is a year-round surfing destination. The peak season is obviously from April until early November, when classic 6-12ft (2-4m) longer period swells arrive from a SSW-WSW direction, which continue to arrive at 3-6ft (1-2m) during the wet season. More S suits Desert’s, the Gilis and the deep bays of Grupuk and Ekas, while more west will hit Mawi and exposed reefs nicely.
When to Go
Wet season tropical cyclone positions can vary greatly, thus sending short-lived swell from a 180º window, packing as much power as winter depressions. Winds blow like clockwork: the mild E-SE trades start in April, SE being the major direction, up to October with more S winds towards the end of the season. November is a transition month with oscillating winds around SE-SW. Then, it shifts to W-NW with W first and then NW until end of March. Get a tide table online or in Bali and pay attention to the range: there is a big and a small tide every day, with many spots working only at mid to high tide.
