Hotel Tugu Lombok
When he built Hotel Tugu Lombok, founder Anhar Setjadibrata hoped to resurrect the art, soul and romance of Lombok’s past. As such, this hotel is part luxury accommodation option, part art gallery and museum. Doubling as an exhibition space for Setjadibrata’s staggering collection of Indonesian antiques and artworks, Hotel Tugu Lombok allows its guests a rare insight into forgotten aspects of the island’s traditional culture. Situated on the secluded, untainted shores of Sire Beach on Lombok’s northwest coast, the hotel also stands as a testament to this often-overlooked destination’s natural heritage. It is a haven defined by sparkling waters and whispering palms, and it is this heady combination of scenic beauty and cultural authenticity that makes a stay at Hotel Tugu Lombok so exceptional.
