Once home to simple fishing villages, Lombok Island, Indonesia is now attracting more an more travellers with surf and sand on their minds. The Villa Almarik Hotel is there to take good care of them. Think seaside trees swaying in the breeze and resplendent prettifying the undersea world. Most pleasantly, cars or motors are banned from the island. A lively scene of bars and restaurants is nearby, but not close enough to disturb your sleep.
