Indonesia Villa Vacation Rentals at Sira Beach on Lombok Island
Villa is located at Sira (Sire), a spur of land bordered by a white ribbon of beach with magnificent views of the coastline, mountains and the neighbouring Gili Islands, just a short boat ride away. Next door is the Lombok Golf Kosaido Country Club, an 18-hole championship course, open to the public. On the other side (five minutes’ walk along the beach) is Hotel Tugu Lombok, a funky-fantastic, atmospheric living museum of extraordinary Indonesian antiques, with a restaurant and bar.
Tanjung (4km) is an attractive Sasak market village with stalls overflowing with local produce; this is also home to The Oberoi Lombok Hotel, complete with a jetty – should you wish to arrive by boat.
Our Villa is 56 kilometres (approximately a two-hour drive) north of Lombok’s new international airport and can also be reached by fast ferries and regular 25-minute flights from Bali.
Our Villa is approached by a private driveway, which leads into a secure parking area. A grand porte cochere, bordered by a lily pond, heralds the entrance to the villa’s main pavilion via a pair of impressive wooden doors. From here, a colonnaded walkway sheltered by a glass-roofed pergola leads over the lily pond to the kitchen and the dining pavilion. The four standalone sleeping pavilions are positioned in the garden, well away from the main pavilion.
Villa’s four bedrooms are housed in individual pavilions which are arranged in pairs but spaced well apart for privacy. Although the pavilions are similar, each is styled with its own bold colour scheme and artwork, complemented by a dressing area and a sumptuous ensuite bathroom. A pair of Anandita’s signature orange sunbeds and a matching umbrella offer peaceful spots for relaxation in front of each pavilion.
The expansive, fan-cooled living room at The villa has a high roof and presents three distinct, yet integrated areas. The central section is distinguished with a Palimanan frieze featuring carvings of birds, frogs, dragonflies, leaves and flowers, and flanking a stone floor that extends directly onto the pool deck through wide, folding glass doors. This area is furnished with two comfortable sofas strewn with playfully coloured scatter cushions, a chair and a rustic coffee table. The remainder of the room is slightly elevated with a polished wood floor that extends around the central sitting area in a U-shape. On one side is a more formal sitting area with segmented upholstered sofas, chairs and a flat screen TV–DVD player. The third area presents a billiard table, desk, bookshelves and guest washroom.
The villa’s splendid dining pavilion is open on four sides under a soaring roof. Cooled by ceiling fans, the dining area is screened from the guest kitchen by attractive fretwork timber panels; one of the walls is graced with a collage featuring Thai elephants, while a Buddha’s-head statue guards the opposite side. Here, guests will be serenaded by the sounds of water-in-motion, charmed by the sight of dragonflies hovering around the fishpond, and captivated by the gorgeous views. A grand dining table for 12 takes centre stage in the pavilion with views through rows of coconut palms in the garden and onwards to the beach and ocean.
The front section of villa’s modern kitchen is well equipped for guest use, with a fridge, coffee machine and plenty of quality tableware and glassware. It also features a built-in breakfast bar furnished with ten chairs. The main staff kitchen is hidden behind a screen wall and is fully equipped with everything that the cook needs to prepare delicious meals.
The Villa boasts a multi-tiered pool deck crafted in both Palimanan stone and timber boards. Here, three tall coconut trees and two frangipani trees offer dappled shade. The main level is furnished with two wooden tables and chairs, each offering a place for casual dining or socialising. An elevated timber deck is furnished with two sunbeds and an umbrella for daytime lounging, plus a table and chairs for a romantic candlelit dinner. Meanwhile, four wide stone steps lead down to another timber deck at pool level, offering more sunbeds and umbrellas. The free-form swimming pool is evocative of a jungle glade with a whirlpool hidden within a circular section. Like a small lagoon, the water wends its way through the garden, bordered by flowering shrubs and trees, river boulders and bushy palms.
The huge manicured lawn stretches all the way down to the beach, a volleyball court is positioned between the palm trees, and a line of sunbeds and umbrellas rest beside the white-sand beach. Elevated just above the beach is a large balé (relaxation pavilion), complete with a telephone for summoning refreshments. This is a great spot for a massage and perfect for contemplating Lombok’s mysterious Mount Rinjani and watching the sunset over Bali’s Mount Agung. There is also a table here for casual lunches or romantic dinners. The beach is lapped by clear waters, shallow and safe for swimming.

“Villa was absolute heaven! A very typical Bali style decorated villa with pavillions, but an unusually large garden and a pool like a resort hotel lagoon. So much space to walk around and feel freedom from the outside world to relax in a beautiful setting. Watching sunsets with margaritas and staff that waited on us hand and foot. Each day was filled with activities which the Villa Manager arranged for us - He was full of so much enthusiasm, that made our stay memorable. We went to the most amazing waterfalls we had ever seen. We also went on a short boat ride with him to Gili Air and Gili Memo and swam with the turtles and fed bread to colourful fish. This was the most memorable trip. The beach had lovely white sand and the water was clean enough to swim when the tide came in. When the tide went out, you could walk amongst the seaweed and coral and discover all sorts of sea creatures from starfish , octopus and much more. The staff prepared 3 meals a day for us, which we had to order in advance the night before. The meals were ok, but nothing to rave about. We had a lovely meal up at the new resort Lombok Lodge which we recommend and was recommended by friends. Overall a very pleasant stay and a great family holiday. We really felt we unwound in this place because of the relaxed atmosphere, which is exactly what we were looking for with our family. We do recommend this Villa, but if you like your food like us, we advise you take your own nibblies like cheese, olives, crackers, chips, nuts etc as this is difficult to get in this area. We took these items in our luggage from singapore and I think this really helped. ”
Villa was a fabulous location for a relaxing family holiday. Gusti and all the staff ensured we wanted for nothing and made the break one of the most memorable we have had as a family. Would be delighted to be able to return again - we felt like family.”
