One of our company chauffeurs will meet you from the plane and drive you to our marina. Your first lombok adventure starts here, and there's a choice! Our driver will take you either through the winding mountain rainforest of Pusuk Pass, or as known by locals as Monkey Forest Road. Here families of friendly Grey Monkeys live in the jungle and they come down to welcome visitors to the island in exchange for a few bananas.

Alternatively you could take the scenic coastal route which offers great opportunities to take stunning photos of the myriad of bays or to look directly across the Wallace Line at the magnificent volcano, Mt. Gunung Agung in neighbouring Bali.

Malimbu is the apex of Lombok where you first encounter the Gilis – as you turn the corner you are suddenly presented with a visual banquet – the Gilis in all their splendour! This route also gives you the opportunity to visit the resort town of Senggigi, which offers many great bars and restaurants, ATMs, post office and supermarkets. Upon arrival at our Marina, our custom-built Ferrari Speedboat and crew will be waiting to transfer you to the Gilis in style, comfort and safety.


Travelling can be thirsty work, so please take advantage of our “Cyber Thirst Quencher” facility which allows you to choose and order in advance, one of our mouthwatering cocktails which will be personally shaken or blended by one of our mixologists and freshly poured as you approach the bar. You are now Horizontal, relax enjoy and imbibe, as our staff take care of everything.
Our travel centre will be more than happy to assist you with all your travel needs.


With the ever growing popularity of the Gilis there are now more than 10 flights daily to Lombok, however flights during the high season get fully booked so it is advisable to book well in advance.
