Travel Honeymoon Ke Lombok

The Gili Islands, Lombok (Part 1)

The promise of crystal blue sea, white sand, and tropical sun lives in the Gili Islands. The islands are located off the northwest coast of Lombok, Indonesia. Gili means “islet” or “very small island” in Sasak language, which is spoken by the native Sasak ethnic group of Lombok. Gili Islands are a sequence of three small islands: Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno, and Gili Air. Popular among Westerners as paradise island getaways, Gili islands offer a peaceful seclusion and a true tropical island feel. With their white beaches, tropical fish, and attractive coral formations, Gilis are one of Indonesia’s top places for diving and snorkeling.

As an extension to our Bali vacation, we took a two-hour boat trip from Benoa Harbor, Bali, to Gili Trawangan. The island is surrounded by turquoise sea water with beautiful sunrise over Lombok’s Mount Rinjani. A spectacular sunset over Bali’s Mount Agung can be seen from the south tip of the island. The island’s entire perimeter is only 8 km. No motorized transportations are permitted on Gili Islands. All rely on bicycles or horse-drawn carts, locally known as cidomos. After arriving at the harbor on the east side of the island, we then took a cidomo to go to our hotel.

Because 24-hour electricity is relatively new and not widely available in Gili Trawangan, we expected that hotels in Gilis would not be as modern as Bali. So, we selected Hotel Vila Ombak as it’s one of the best and newest hotels in the island. After hotel check-in, we went to our hotel room. Our impression about the hotel was below than our expectation. The hotel exterior is great, but internally it’s just basic and poorly maintained. We base our evaluation on the pricey room rate (around US$145 per night) and the new condition of the building. The room has a TV, two beds, and a wardrobe with a safe. Bathroom has a toilet and outdoor shower area. The good side is that the beach and the sea scenery in front of the hotel are stunning.

After dropping our bags at our hotel, we walked through the busy touristy region of the island that is full of restaurants, accomodations, pubs, and diving shops. We had lunch at the restaurant of Beach House Resort. The restaurant stands right next the beach with an incredible view of the blue sea, Gili Meno, and Lombok.

Wedding Registries are not tacky.

by cruisingspecialist

They are a great way for a Bride and Groom to get some if not all of there honeymoon paid for. As you all know, honeymoons can be very expensive and if your friends and family want to help out in this manner it is great. Who needs five toasters? I have a link to a wedding registry on my travel website but I can't give you the link because will feel that it is spam and will slap my fingers!! Yes, a portion of the funds given do go to the registry provider but it is still a neat way to get some of your honeymoon paid for.
