Lombok Hotel Tugu – Lombok

You’ve done it the hard way, traveling with your surfboard on local buses with chickens on the roof and staying in village beachside huts.  You loved the experience and the culture but now you want to surf in comfort and style. Can you do it without losing that sense of adventure and new experiences?

You bet you can. A small and exclusive art and antiques boutique hotel, that’s exactly what the Tugu Lombok gives you.  The Javanese founder has a passion and vision of providing guests with an environment showcasing the country’s antiquities and heritage.

But you’re still a surfer at heart.  And some of the world’s best surf is an excursion away from the hotel’s secluded natural location on Lombok’s northwest coast.  The Gili islands with its fabulous rights are a short boat ride away.  When the swell is up, hire a car to the fabled lefts of Desert Point.  The south coast of the Lombok, with its variety of surf breaks, are also easily accessible.  Let the hotel’s concierge take care of the traveling details for you.

The hotel is situated on miles of pristine white sand beach where local life in the thatched huts and green fields goes on much has it has for centuries. The eight suites and villas, each uniquely designed and decorated, bring back to life a nearly-forgotten slice of Lombok’s multicultural history.   The Peranakan culture of Chinese settlers adapting to local customs is highlighted in the Ampenan Bungalow.  The Puri Dadep Merah villa relives the legend of the original Dadap Merah / Aksobya temple visited by the old Javanese kings centuries ago. Whichever you choose, you are pampered with service fit for royalty.  The Tugu is renowned for its cuisine, served in stunning settings, from sunrise picnic breakfast to moonlight spa dinner.

When you aren’t surfing or lazing, the hotel offers unique, one-of-a-kind cultural experiences.  Learn to cook Lombok cuisine by going first to the local market to select with your chef’s help the ingredients you will need.  Lombok is a center of pearl cultivation, and here you can learn about this ancient industry in your “learn how to pearl” class.  Trek the nearby waterfalls. Snorkel and dive in some of the world’s best dive spots.   Attempt holes-in-one at the adjacent 18-hole golf course.

But use the Wifi service to keep an eye on the swell for strike missions. Get one of Desert Point’s barrels and you’ll remember it for life.

Just like you’ll remember your Tugu experience.

RATES & PACKAGES

PLEASE CONTACT WORLD SURF ADVENTURES FOR RATES

Desert Point

Desert Point is without a doubt the best lefthander in the world. You can score deep long barrels over 20secs . The take-off area is a little shifty and once you are up and going the wave starts reeling across the shallow reef, once you get further down the line the wave starts to grow, once it hits the grower section the caverns get faster and as wide a truck then usually shuts down at the end. Best surfed on a S-SW swell, SE winds and spring tides as the tide starts to drop and can be surfed throughout the whole low tide through to high, however, the wave usually shuts off when the tide reaches to high.

Kuta

Is the most popular surf spot on Lombok as it caters for all skill levels. It is a great wet-season wave as the right on the western headland is offshore in NW winds & S-SE swell. Mawun & Air Guling, the left across the channel is of less quality, however, both are great fun waves.

Outside Ekas

A powerful left hander that is shifty. This wave lines up at the base of steep cliffs at the Eastern side of the headland. This wave picks up a considerable amount of swell than inside Ekas. Can get good with size with long walls and the odd cover up section. Be wary of the strong currents.

Belongas

A fast left with a few cover up sections. Across the bay is a fun right that needs a solid South swell to get in & NW winds to work. Deep inside the bay are a few more options & the reef cut at Meang may have some lefts & rights with North winds.

Gili Air

Needs a massive SSW swell, spring high tides & light W-NW winds to make this wave turn on. When it does it reels off perfectly down the reef.

Gili Trawangan

Needs a Solid SSW swell, high tide & light W-NW winds to make this wave turn on. Located on the southern tip of Gili-T this wave is very quick and hollow. Can be challenging to surf. There is a lot of current ripping through so experience is recommended.

Ekas

Is a right and left hander. The right needs a moderate SW swell to turn on and can barrel occasionally. The SE trades winds blow straight up the face into the barrel. The lefts are longer & wall up. Best conditions are Low – mid tide for the rights, high tide for the lefts and any E winds.

Inside Grupuk

There are 3 waves in this bay. On the inside there is a long right, The outside a big powerful left & Tattoo Point is an A-Frame with a long left hander & shorter right that is not very hollow, however, great for maneuvers.

Mawi

Is a consistent left & right hander on the south coast that breaks in the dry season & works on all size swells. When the swell is smaller it is very fun peak until the right starts closing out at 6ft. The powerful left roars down the reef and holds 6ft+ offering a gnarly drop and a big wall, then a barrel section before it shuts down on the reef. Be wary of the strong currents in the channel.

Outside Grupuk

A deep water Bombora that is very fat and forgiving. A nice drop with plenty of shoulder make it easy for beginners when it is small & intermediates when it is big. Best on a South swell, however, gets blown out from any wind from the South. Best on Mid – high tides & often crowded.

Senggigi

Is mainly a left with a sectiony right which needs a Northerly wind to make it work and a solid SW swell. A mid – high tide will cover the coral reef and deliver some hollow lefts.

Sereweh

Is a series of reef cuts & passes that offer options on a small swell. The wave has some nice ramps to hit up the eastern channel. If these waves are not breaking the Lombok is dead flat. A SE swell and N winds are recommended to make the long journey by boat worth it. Difficult to access by land & and hard to scope by sea.

Are Guling

Has 2 breaks. A right hander that has a quick inside section which is best at low – Mid-tide which has a fair amount of protection from the wind & a hollow left that is a bit shifty and works best on a mid -High tide.
