THE SPECTACULAR BEACHES OF LOMBOK – A DESTINATION MAKING A COME BACK WITH THE OPENING OF THE LEGIAN SIRE IN AUGUST
The Legian Sire, Lombok will launch in August 2020, making Lombok and the neighbouring Gili Islands more accessible than ever for the discerning traveller, offering diverse, cultural experiences within the island, which still remains remarkably untouched by tourism. Located on the beautiful 3.8-kilometre Sire Beach, the 45-suite and 15-villa boutique resort has staggering views of the Gili Islands and Lombok’s Mount Rinjani.
The hotel interiors are by Studio Affandy & Yeo, boutique design studio whose founders Agnes Affandy and Shaun Yeo are prodigies of Jaya Ibrahim (interior designer of sister property The Legian Seminyak, Bali) and architecture is by award-winning ESA International, headed up by Indonesian talent Putu Edy Semara – celebrating local culture and craftsmanship. The hotel opening will also help put Lombok on the map for wellness travellers, thanks to LHM’s innovative Wellness by The Legian concept, including an Apothecary Bar, with fresh all-natural, organic ingredients including Lombok volcanic clay.
Guests can sample sea-and-farm-to-table fare at signature eatery, The Restaurant, relaxed Italian plates at The Cucina and delicious dishes at The Vegetarian – the first vegetarian restaurant in Lombok. Lombok is far from a fly and flop destination and during a stay, The Legian Sire guests will embark on snorkelling excursions to the neighbouring Gili Islands, hike to local waterfalls and across paddy fields, discover the local wildlife and get a taste of the local culture with a visit Lombok’s oldest mosque, Bayan Belek, built in 1634.
