The fasting month of Ramadan is over and the height of the tourist summer season is upon us in Lombok. There is something for everyone in this bumper July issue of MyLombok from great dining options to luxury stays and wellness tips. We bring you the joys of acroyoga – the latest yoga trend to arrive in Lombok and celebrate the opening of the all new Scallywags Spa in Gili T. Staying with a healthy theme, we take a look at the benefits of superfood Sunflower seeds and chat to the chef of Spice restaurant. Our restaurant review this month is a reappraisal of old favourite Lotus Bayview, one of Senggigi’s most beloved eateries. There is a generous helping of luxury island living this issue as we bring you all the details of KoKo-Mo’s lavish new resort on Gili Gede and the renewed focus and rebrand of Malimbu Cliff Villa.

Wagwan Spa at Scallywags, Gili Trawangan Gili T welcomes its newest seafront spa for soothing body bliss

T

he fast evolving spa scene in Gili Trawangan has yet another new spa facility looking forward to shake things up. Any regular visitors to Gili T (or Gili Air) will be well acquainted with the fun loving island style of Scallywags Resorts. From accommodation, beach club dining to diving, Scallywags has now added yet another string to its bow. Wagwan Spa is officially opened at Scallywags GIli T, promising to add an extra dimension to blissful body pampering on the island. Why the moniker Wagwan? Scallywags has never been one to follow normal convention and in true quirky style, Wagwan translates in Jamaican Patois as ‘How are you going’. Scallywags’ bright and breezy location overlooking Gili T’s South Beach is just the spot for some spa pampering and comprises three single treatment rooms and a double deluxe room for simultaneous treatments for a couple. Air-conditioned with high ceilings, treatment rooms are light and airy providing that necessary soothing aura for a heavenly rubdown. The spa takes its inspiration from the healing qualities of nature’s precious liquid energy, and the calming sounds of the ocean’s ebb and flow are never far away. The white and turquoise blue colour scheme only adds to the restful tropical island vibe. Wagwan features a reception, a lifestyle retail area and small waiting lounge along with a hair spa comprising two guest hair stations for lavish cream bath treatments. In addition there is a stylish manicure, pedicure and reflexology lounge with eye catching royal blue spherical chairs.

18

Whether it’s for detox, to relieve stress, boost vitality or simply relax mind and body in the lap of luxury, there is a pampering pleasure to be had for all. Choose the ‘rituals of the face’ treatment or a signature ‘Body Ritual’ ranging from Balinese Massage, Indian Head Massage, Deep Tissue Massage and Aligning Back Massage. Sumptuous scrubs and wraps are designed to revitalize sun damaged skin and all those tired muscles. Choose from 60 or 90 minutes of soothing body bliss. There is also the opportunity to take home more than just a spa-tastic memory. Wagwan’s retail corner stocks a charming collection of packaged bottles of massage oil, body lotion, body wash, soaps and candles, gifts and fashion accessories. No doubt recognizing the generally lower standard of spa therapist skill here in what is still a relatively new market, Scallywags has tapped Glo Day Spa and Salon from Bali to administer training and spa consulting services to the Wagwan team. It says this is the first true spa experience on the island, and based on Scallywag’s 10 years of success so far in the Gilis, a new wellness destination to be reckoned with has been born. Wagwan Spa opens daily from 10.00am–10.00pm. South Beach Gili Trawangan Lombok NTB Indonesia Phome: +62(0)3706145301 Email: spa@scallywagsresort.com Web: www.wagwanspa.com

Acroyoga

Fusing spiritual wisdom and the dynamic power of acrobatics, acroyoga has arrived in Lombok

W

hile still a fair way behind the scene in Bali, yoga has definitely taken a rapid foothold in Lombok in recent years. Once a barren land for aspiring yogis, Lombok now features dozens of places to strike a pose with classes for every conceivable discipline. Aside from traditional spiritual fitness, there is yoga for surfers, anti-gravity aerial yoga and even stand up paddle yoga on the water. Perhaps the most eye-catching of all (and arguably the most fun) is acroyoga. The secret is in the name – combining the traditional essence of mainstream yoga and Thai massage with dynamic acrobatics. While a yoga class itself is a shared experience among practitioners, acroyoga takes this to a whole new level. It is all about teamwork and trust. Two or more yogis work toward the twin goals of curative release and acrobatic excitement. One partner (known as the ‘base’) supports the ‘flyer’ in a series of aerial poses, while a third person, known as the ‘spotter’ keeps a keen eye on posture and alignment of the two. There is a misconception that you have to possess superhuman strength to support the weight of another person whilst lying down but the legs can support a surprising weight when aligned properly. It is all about balance, timing and trust in your partner.

Starting with a ‘T’ formation (known as the Front Bird) with the base’s feet perpendicular to the flyer’s outstretched torso, there is a near infinite number of different poses that can be achieved with a keen sense of balance, confidence and trust. Some of the more intense ones have suitably descriptive names such as ‘hangle dangle’, ‘the archer’, ‘straddle bat’ and the gravity defying three-person ‘teeter totter’. New poses are being created all the time, many of which do not even yet have official names. Because of its physicality, it provides more of a personal connection than virtually any other strand of yoga and allows people to confront their inhibitions and their perceived physical limitations. It relies on the abilities of a duo to work together in unison, creating heightened trust and communication. Some people even say acroyoga is the new couples’ therapy. The flying and acrobatics element of acroyoga is playful and energizing. After all, the path to enlightenment should include a little fun too. Having arrived recently from Bali, the acroyoga movement is growing steadily here in Lombok. Give it a try at Asthari Yoga Shala on the hill in Kuta or Mandalablue in Gili Air.

LOTUS BAYVIEW SENGGIGI

A TALE OF TWO CHEFS

Lotus Bayview Senggigi Italian flair by the beach at an old Senggigi favourite

W

hile the always evolving Senggigi scene sees restaurants come and go at an alarming rate, Lotus Bayview has been an ever-present fixture for years, proving great food and quality service never goes out of style. The setting just steps from the water’s edge, is another major selling point, offering a captivating sunset vista of Bali’s Mount Agung. The restaurant’s interior design is quintessentially tropical Lombok style with an uncluttered layout making the most of the unrestricted ocean views and cool seas breezes. It is a favourite haunt for cosmopolitan locals, expats and travellers and is known as a welcoming place for intimate culinary focused social events. Since 2012 the restaurant has held annual pizza making fun days for the kids of the Peduli Anak Foundation, further cementing its place within the community. In keeping with the general philosophy of the Lotus group of restaurants, which are noted for their consistent quality in Bali, this Lombok outpost also has its own distinctive local character in both general ambience and food. The mainly Italian influenced menu uses locally sourced Lombok produce to fashion a unique fusion of Mediterranean flavours with an inimitable local twist. It’s a delightful contrast to the array of Indonesian favourites such as mixed sate, chicken curry and a wide variety of fresh grilled seafood, including lobster and

It’s an ambitious menu with more than enough options to please every palate. A traditional wood fired pizza whips up nearly a dozen different pizzas including the time honoured Margherita, Marinara, Hawaiian, Calzone and more. On the pasta front, try the Red Fettuccine – featuring red pepper pasta with fresh tomatoes and a tuna fillet sprinkled with parsley and garlic. Affable host Chef Maurizio is the creative force behind the diverse offerings, introducing some lesser known Mediterranean delights rarely seen in Lombok. Tonno all’ Acqua Pazzo tuna steak is one of the newer creations alongside the equally interesting crabmeat Spaghetti Granchio. Freshly baked foccacia, classic Asian appetizers and delectable sweet treats complete a menu that covers most bases with consummate ease. Lovers of old school classic desserts are in for a treat too. Dive into the cinnamon apple pie or chocolate mousse for the sweetest of sweet endings. The restaurant scene in a tourist hotspot like Senggigi is a fickle one where only the very best survive and stay around for the long haul. The recipe for success at Lotus Bayview comes from its casual island style ambience and the familiarity of consistently good food and service that draws people back time and again.

CHEF INTERVIEW

NUNKOO SUTTYAWAN AND LAMBERTO VALDEZ

A Tale of Two Chefs

Nunkoo: I love the white beans my mother makes. You put them inside Indian paratha bread with chutney – tastes great!

N

unkoo Suttyawan is from Mauritius. Lamberto Valdez comes from Mexico. After building their careers in food, they met in Doha in 2009, and worked together there for two years. Their paths crossed again, working in Puerto Rico together for six months, and later for several months in Senggigi. Lamberto is executive chef de cuisine at Anantara in the Maldives, and runs six restaurants at the resort. He is also one of the owners of SPICE, and currently back as a guest chef and trainer. He and Chef Nunkoo are working together once again and have introduced a new taste experience for SPICE customers. What is the one dish you love and remember from your mother’s kitchen? Lamberto: For me it is enchilados –not exactly the same as we know them now. The dish was made from stale enchilados, and we would dip them into a chili salsa. It’s known as ‘poor man’s food’ but it’s delicious!

44

When did you first become interested in food? Lamberto: It was an accident, really. When I was growing up, cooking was for the ladies – not for men. So when I went to the Hotel and Tourism School it was not to learn cooking. But I had to do my hospitality internship in all the departments, so of course after Front Desk, Bell Boy, and Housekeeping duties, I had no choice but to work in the kitchen. That was when I realised I was good at it – not just one kitchen task, but at everything in the kitchen. I was especially good at sculpting the food. The chef who was in charge of me at the time liked me, and offered to pay me to stay. Eight years later I was still working in the kitchen, and wherever my boss went, he took me with him. In 1989 I became serious about being a chef and I joined Le Méridien. Nunkoo: My brother is an executive sous chef at a hotel in Mauritius, and when I was younger he would come home and tell me to stop lying around at home doing nothing. So one day I went out to find myself a job; I started working as a kitchenhand in one of the hotels in Mauritius. Before coming to SPICE, where else have you worked? Nunkoo: I have worked in Mauritius, of course –at Le Méridien, the Oberoi, the Long Beach Resort, the Marina, and at W Hotels, in Puerto Rico. I was also at the Sheraton, at Senggigi Beach, and I love the island, so when SPICE Lounge Bar & Restaurant opened I was asked to be the Executive Chef, which meant I could return to Lombok. I like the laidback feel of nature and the outdoors. Lamberto: I’ve worked in the Ritz Carlton and various hotel chains – W Hotels, and Luxury Collections. I first came to Lombok by accident. I went from Puerto Rico to Bali, to open two properties. When I arrived, the openings were postponed, so I was told I would be going to an island called Lombok. I went to the Sheraton, at Senggigi, where I was based for six months. Now I’m back, as part-owner of SPICE and training the kitchen team. I find it very motivating. I can contribute to the development of the young people by transferring my knowledge to them. I love Lombok and hope to retire here one day.


Describe or define your style of cooking. Lamberto: It’s contemporary – modern... but everyday I make sure my food is evolving. I would never stay with just one style. It’s important to learn, and keep moving forward. Styles are there to be changed. Nunkoo: My style focuses on Indian, Arabic, and Creole.

What are your favourite kitchen gadgets? Nunkoo: Spoons – for tasting food and checking the flavour, and to plate the food. Lamberto: Chef’s garnishing tongs. They are in my pocket, and I use them all the time. You can pick up very small, delicate herbs without damaging them.

Tell us about the concept for your menu at SPICE There’s a focus on spice, which is our base. It’s where the name comes from, of course, and it’s tied in with the history of the restaurant. SPICE offers an international cuisine – a modern approach to cooking, with lots of spices and flavours.

What is the biggest challenge in your job? Nunkoo: Probably when the suppliers don’t deliver the stock on time. It’s also a challenge trying to get fresh produce, and ensuring you get the exact product you ask for.

What inspires you? How do you come up with ideas for the dishes in the restaurant? Nunkoo: I love cooking with all the different spices, and experimenting with new flavours. Lamberto: I sit and look at a dish, and I like to think about how we can improve it. The longer my list of things to improve, the more I want to do. This is what keeps me motivated, and challenges me to create new things. I am cautious, though; I don’t like to rush things. What’s your favourite dish on the SPICE menu? Lamberto: To choose a favourite is like having to decide between your five kids; I can’t do that – they are all my favourites. I like complex dishes that have lots of ingredients and take a long time to cook. The longer the process, the more delicious the flavour. Nunkoo: Rawon Surabaya Soup is my favourite – it has a lot of different spices in it, and a delicious flavor, of course! What do your customers seem to like best? The Ayam Taliwang, as it is a traditional Lombok dish, and also the Beef Bourguignon, because of its flavours. Tell us about the new dishes you introduced for the Fiesta Latina at SPICE. Lamberto: Well, I am a Mexican chef and I would like to offer something different for the customers to try. It is a great opportunity for our guests who dine at SPICE to taste authentic Mexican food. A couple of examples of the new dishes are: Picadillo – sopa de tortilla, and Tacos – Pescado a la Veracruzana. I am leaving these recipes behind for Chef Nunkoo to recreate in the future. We are hoping to offer Fiesta Latina every four months. Do you have favourite ingredients to cook with? Nunkoo: I love the flavour of ginger. You can use it to cook so many dishes – Arabic, Chinese, Mauritian. Lamberto: I can’t live without garlic and onion. I use these ingredients in almost every dish I cook and I love their flavours.

When you’re at home, do you like to cook? And what do you like to eat? No, we don’t cook at home. If we have to, we cook very simple dishes like pasta with tomato sauce. But we are both adventurous eaters, and we will try anything. What do you like to do in your spare time? Lamberto: I like to take it easy, relax, have a cup of coffee, and look at nature. It’s good to sit in front of the ocean and just unwind. Nunkoo: I like to swim, and fish, or read a book. What is your idea of a great meal or dining experience? Lamberto: For me, it is about being with my family and friends and just enjoying the food, and not criticising it. It’s great when I am out of my chef mode. Other than creating great food, what are the most important qualities that make a successful chef? Lamberto: Having good human and social relationships. We are not all motivated by the same thing, so understanding the people around you makes you a better chef. It’s not you who’s cooking all the time, so when your kitchen staff can cook, with no mistakes, and everything functions fantastically when you are not there, this also makes you a good chef. Who is your favourite celebrity chef? Lamberto: Ferran Adrià – he has been a great example for me. He started as a dishwasher and worked his way up. He was Head Chef at El Bulli on the Costa Brava in Spain. He is down to earth. He won an award that has never been given to a chef before. Any tips for budding chefs? Lamberto: Yes, you must be passionate. Don’t always be concerned about money and time. Forget them. You must love what you do first and then the money will follow, and success will come.

The Sunflower

A Little Ray of Sunshine

T

here’s little doubt about it. The sunflower is a bright smiley little package of goodness. Its name, Helianthus, comes from the Greek words Helios, meaning ‘sun’, and anthos, ‘flower’. Apart from the fact that its form is like the face of the sun, during its growth phase it turns to follow the sun’s path during the day. The plant was first grown in Mexico, probably almost 5,0000 years ago, and gradually spread throughout the Americas. Native American peoples used it in dyes and body paints, and used the seeds in bread, and the oil in medical ointments. The early Spanish explorers took the seeds back to Europe at the beginning of the sixteenth century, and the plant flourished there too. The sunflower is a fascinating natural phenomenon. Inside the rings of petals, the central, disk-shaped part of the flower is in fact made up of much smaller flowers. These flowerets mature into sunflower seeds. What is especially interesting is the complex and symmetrical arrangement of these tiny flowers. Mathematicians have studied them, and found correlations between their spiral patterns and complicated formulae related to number sequences (Fibonacci numbers) and ratios (the Golden Angle). Most of us are more familiar with the products of the sunflower – its oil, and its two types of seeds (black and striped). Sunflower Oil is extracted from the black seeds, usually by pressing. As a cooking oil, it is a low-cholesterol alternative to animal-based or milk fats. It is also cheaper than many other oils, and popular for producing margarines.

The oil varies in its composition, depending on the plant variety. Generally, in terms of its fat content, approximately 10-15% is saturated fats, with poly-unsaturated about 30-35%; up to 50% is mono-unsaturated fat, which is higher than in some olive oils. The oil is a rich source of vitamin E – an important antioxidant that helps rid the body of cell-damaging free radicals. It also has a pleasant smell, and because it is stable and stores well, it is a favourite in skins creams and as a carrier oil for medical and cosmetic preparations. Sunflower Seeds are widely recognised as having high nutritional value. Every 100 grams contain approximately 50% fat. We’re talking about the ‘good fat’ variety, which is important for a healthier heart, for good hormonal balance, and for better digestion processes. This same half-cup serve provides 20% protein, and 10% fibre, almost half of the average daily requirement of these essential components of our diet. These little super-seeds also have high levels of magnesium, and vitamin B6, and useful amounts of iron and calcium. The striped seeds are used in sunflower seed-based foods. Either raw or roasted, plain, salted or spiced, they are popular in their whole form – as snacks, or for sprinkling on salads. As alternatives to peanuts, they can be ground into a delicious ‘sunflower seed butter’. Many people use them in any recipe that calls for the far more expensive pine nut.

49


In baked goods, especially when combined with whole flours and other seeds, they add even more interest to textured breads. And if you have any left over, many species of caged, or garden, birds will love them too. A very smart flower Sunflowers are often planted for their allelopathic qualities; this means that they benefit other species growing nearby. They are frequently ‘companion plants’ to beans, corn and varieties of pumpkin, or squash. Even more amazing is their ability to neutralise toxins in soil and water. This was of great value after the nuclear disasters in Chernobyl in 1986 and Fukushima in 2011. The sunflower plant has been used for medicinal purposes, too. Native Americans from New Mexico make a poultice from wellchewed sunflower roots to treat snakebite, after the venom has been sucked out. Other communities have used the flowers to sooth complaints related to chest, lung, and kidney pain. The plant also produces a type of latex, and scientists are exploring the possibilities of using it for non-allergenic rubber products. And, as if that isn’t enough, the sunflower is seen as a symbol of truth and good fortune. With its happy nodding golden head, that isn’t so surprising. Sleep with one under your pillow, and in the morning, you’ll discover the truth about something. Pick one at sunset tonight, and wear it (it would probably have to be a smaller than average one!) and you’ll have good luck tomorrow. So the story goes, anyway. Vincent Van Gogh loved painting sunflowers. Not sure how well that worked for him. Sunflowers are also connected with loyalty, fertility, magical powers, and the special gift of ‘seeing the fairy folk’. Perhaps they are stories for another day.

LUXURY LIVING

MALIMBU CLIFF VILLA New focus on exceptional Lombok hospitality for a luxury villa experience

G

uests staying at Malimbu Cliff Villa are used to the high life. The dramatic setting hugging the hillside has a real WOW factor for West Lombok’s best sunset views, and the team at Malimbu Cliff Villa have plans to elevate the experience even more. At MyLombok we have already showcased the villa’s eye-catching design and captivating location and now there is a commitment to take the villa experience above and beyond anything Lombok has seen before. These lofty ideals come from Lombok based luxury villa management specialists Selong Selo, who have now taken over management of the villa. With this there is a renewed focus on providing premium in-villa services to match the aspirations of an increasingly demanding luxury market. This translates in to all aspects of personalised service, incorporating high-end cuisine, wellness, housekeeping and security – pretty much everything one comes to expect from a five-star hotel stay.

with refreshing drinks and cocktails. Family in-villa dining is elevated to an interactive experience with an open kitchen and dining area to watch the master at work. Delicious home-style meals can be tailored to suit each and every guest regardless of personal preferences and dietary needs, including meals just for kids. There is also a big focus on healthy living and wellness at Malimbu Cliff Villa. It offers luxury spa treatments provided in-villa by highly skilled therapists from a reputable local spa. A traditional Indonesian rubdown, foot reflexology, manicure or blissful body scrub can be arranged by the villa staff. The serene aura of a luxury spa comes to you, in the privacy of your own villa.

There are housekeepers, a gardener and pool attendant and no less than five security guards providing discreet round-the-clock security. Malimbu Cliff Villa has always ticked all the boxes for eye-catching design, style and priceless views but the villa experience is only as good as the seamless guest-centric service team behind it. Exceptional Lombok hospitality is the hallmark behind the new Malimbu Cliff Villa experience.

HOTEL REVIEW


Ko-ko-mo Gili Gede Stylish resort living comes to the pristine beaches of Gili Gede

T

hink of southwest Lombok’s secret Gilis and back to basics island living springs to mind. A secluded setting with unspoilt beaches and a quintessential laid back island vibe inevitably means a day of arduous travel and a lack of luxury creature comforts. Not so anymore on Gili Gede, with the recent opening of Ko-ko-mo’s latest stylish resort offering. The first upscale option on the ‘Big lsland’ proves luxury can happily co-exist with the laid back charms of island life. Long renowned in Gili Trawangan, Koko-mo has brought its boutique villa philosophy to a brand new destination. Ko-ko-mo’s quaint ‘villa kecil’ units in Gili Gede are brimming with character, furnished in period teak wood with a traditional Sulawesi style. Perched on elevated wood decking, these one-room villas feature high ceilings and an uncluttered layout, fusing cool and funky design and a flavour of traditional tropical style. There is a crisp, colour scheme contrasting whitewashed walls with dark wood floors and fixtures. Semi open Balinese style bathrooms measure a generous seven metres and are meticulously crafted in marble and granite with both an indoor and outdoor shower. For a conspicuous step up style and comfort, Ko-ko-mo’s one and two-bed self contained villas perfectly fit the bill for a luxury Lombok staycation. Each is set in its own expansive grounds with a private pool, offering eye-catching ocean views, providing a captivating spot for al fresco dining or sunset drinks. The villa living area features elegant wood finishing and marble flooring, brightened with a splash of summery colour and ethnic art pieces. Again, the general accent has a quintessential Indonesian flavour with a contemporary edge. The villas’ spacious bedrooms make the very most of the natural sunlight with clever use of warm, tropical colours. Some one-bedroom interconnecting units can transform seamlessly into an expansive two-bedroom floor plan for larger groups or family.

HOTEL REVIEW

The Ko-ko-mo two-bed villa easily accommodates four persons in comfort. Bedrooms open up onto the pool area via a wide sun terrace which forms the main social hub of the accommodation alongside the lounge which comes with an integrated, fully equipped kitchenette. Throughout the interior, tasteful colour contrasts with quirky art pieces, which add up to a compelling mix of luxury island style living and Ko-ko-mo’s signature contemporary flair. Regulars of Ko-ko-mo Gili T will be pleased to learn the Gili Gede resort abides by the same exacting standards when it comes to the pleasures of the palate. Helmed by a talented ex-Sydney chef, the Ko-ko-mo restaurant presents Asian and Italian inspired creations with a focus on locally caught seafood. Carnivores can savour prime cuts of meat flown imported from Australia while there is the rare pleasure of a comprehensive wine list and freshly baked breads and delectable desserts. The real pleasure of the secret Gilis and Gili Gede in particular is the chance to unplug and experience real island living. It ticks all the boxes for the castaway at heart but this new offering from Koko-mo adds yet another dimension. Not only is the first true lux option on the island, it offers all the trappings of an upscale resort experience. Aside from the high-end accommodations, Ko-ko-mo offers a tennis court, fitness room, putting green and driving nets, and pampering spa treatments, all of which are a first for the island. It’s a great jumping off point for diving the secret Gilis, deep sea fishing, yachting and catching the awesome waves of legendary Desert Point. It’s also closer than it ever has been thanks to Ko-komo establishing direct fast boat services on Gili Getaway Fastboat, from Bali a so is eminentaly doable even for a brief weekend staycation.

ASTROLOGY — JULY 2016

horoscopeofthemonth Aries (March 21–April 19) Your communication skills are sharper than ever, and you are getting the work done in record time. So why are you having trouble with people in authority. Sometimes your star shines too brightly, Ram. Your bosses are the type of people who believe that alls that glitters is not gold. Try not to look for recognition as you do your job. In two months you’ll have opportunities to improve your situation, so what until then to make a move.

Leo (July 23–August 22) You can score big this month by moving quickly and traveling light. There is no more persuasive sign of the zodiac, and if you use this superpower for good, you’ll catch some awesome opportunities that seem to manifest out-of-the-blue. You’ll impress those in authority as well as long as you don’t rest on your laurels. There is one caution about using backchannel resources. These could prove to harm your ambitions rather than help.

Taurus (April 20–May 20) If you listen to the negative comments of others you will only frustrate yourself. You doing wonderfully, and these self-appointed critics are only jealous of your talent and style. Part f the problem is that you feel like you should be doing something “more” when the Universe is quite satisfied with what you’ve accomplished so far. Find a project that can help other people make changes in their life and you’ll feel much better what you’ve accomplished thus far.

Virgo (August 23–September 22) Children are your bright spot this month. You love nothing better than spending time with your offspring, even if they create a little extra work for you. You may go overboard worrying about different illnesses, but for most Virgo parents, these are just little hiccups in the daily life of a child. If you have no offspring this may be the time you decide to add more fur children to your home. If you get a rescue, be absolutely sure of its health.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19) As the planet of transformation continues its long slow passage through your zodiac sign you find you cut yourself off others. You may think of it as a surgical strike to prevent the repeats of the disappointments of the past. But no man or woman is an island, and even crabs lose their shells from time to time to find something that fits better. This is a good time to seek help to overcome the shadows of the past, but you must come out of your cave to do it.

Gemini (May 21–June 20) The stars have not been forgiving of you, Gemini. While it seems like it isn’t possible this month presents more pressures this month. First is the ever-present challenge of taking more responsibility, but you don’t know where to put your efforts. And while you cast about for a proper role for yourself you only seem to annoy the people around you. Hint. Focus on what other people need from you rather than what you want to do.

Libra (September 23–October 22) You are lucky at work if you don’t let the other challenges in your life drag you down. You do seem to be beset on all sides by family issues and big things like taxes, insurance or estate matters. You aren’t sure what to tackle first, but your usual strategy of “thinking things over” will not help you here. Roll us your sleeves and get your hands dirty. After you fix things you can wash your hands of the whole mess.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18) Known far and wide as being a great multitasker, this month you are the victim of your own success. You’ve got two of your biggest fans looking to you pull out all the stops and give them something they need. You don’t mind working hard, but sometimes you like to stop and smell the roses, especially during the summer when sun and fun beckons. The lesson is learning to strike a balance between what others want and what you need.

Cancer (June 21–July 22) Your biggest problem, Cancer is your resistance to change. This month presents wonderful opportunities to change up your life for the better, but you must keep your eye on the ball. New opportunities for love and money pop up fast, but dissipate just as quickly. To grab your share of the Universe’s goodies you cannot afford to think things over. Just do it and reap the rewards.

Scorpio (October 23–November 21) The summer bring opportunities to relax and have some fun. However, it might be best if you make one last big push to finish a big project before you hit the beaches. The planet of action, Mars will leave your sign soon leaving you less energetic. Also take this time to make preventative health care appointments so that when you do feel more tired you will know it’s not your health that’s awry. Sssh. I won’t tell that you have a small streak of hypochondria.

Pisces (February 19–March 20) You are asked to lend support to a project that is a darling of upper management. You may feel you have more talent than the two you have to report to, and you are right. There are sometimes when you have to take the role of follower to fill job requirements. This is one of those times. You’ll get nowhere by pointing out others errors, so just concentrate on the portion of the task that is assigned to you.

68

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21) You are a natural leader. Friends and workmates are more than happy to go along with your sudden flashes of inspiration. What you must guard against is letting your imagination get away with you. Genius comes from exploring those ideas that others won’t or can’t, but sometimes your flights of fancy gets away from you. Guard against taking yourself too seriously and you can have a marvelous month.

This is Lombok! Lombok’s time is here and now, having finally stepped out of Bali’s shadow, showcasing to the world its unique mix of adventure, pristine natural scenery and captivating art and culture. A new airport, international yacht marina and improved roads have made travel to and within Lombok much easier, but it is its untamed natural beauty and traditional charm that captivates. It is an adventure-seeker’s paradise, home to world-class scuba diving, surfing and mountain climbing yet travellers looking for a cosmopolitan beach lifestyle and luxury creature comforts will not be short of options. Experience the best of Lombok with these recommended highlights and hidden gems:

Senggigi and The West Coast Senggigi, just a short drive from the island capital Mataram is Lombok’s premier beach resort, extending along a series of sweeping bays. The main beach strip is fringed by a wide expanse of sand framed nightly by spectacular ocean sunsets. It is a fairly spread out beach town that rarely feels overcrowded yet there is a broad variety of places to stay, eat and socialise. There is a vibrant expat community here with lots of opportunity for sports and leisure, business networking and searching out those hard to find imported goods. Senggigi is the best place to arrange days out and guided trips to other parts of Lombok. The beach road then winds its way north to upmarket Mangsit, dotted with hip boutique hotels and villas among some of west Lombok’s most captivating scenery. In all, the Senggigi area stretches for almost 10 km along the west coast, and away from the main tourist centre, comprises numerous palm fringed beaches dotted with colourful fishing boats.

72

Gili Islands A trio of tiny tropical islands off the northwest coast, known simply as ‘the Gilis’ are the go-to place for laid-back island life and the simple pleasures of sun, sea and superb scuba diving. Each of these three islands has its own distinctive atmosphere; the smallest is Gili Meno, a peaceful tropical island haven with few distractions other than deserted white sand beaches and a couple of chilled out beach bars. Legendary ‘party island’ Gili Trawangan is largest and most cosmopolitan of the Gili Islands with no shortage of swanky boutique villas, diverse dining and plenty of action after dark. Gili Air, located closest to the Lombok mainland, sits somewhere in the middle of these two extremes and has the most authentic local atmosphere. The enduring appeal of the Gili Islands is the refreshing absence of any motorised transport making for a pleasant alternative to Bali’s congested beach resorts. Scuba diving is still the main draw and it is one of Asia’s top spots to learn the basics and get qualified. For landlubbers, there are few better places to get horizontal on a tropical beach and soak up the unique island vibe.

Kuta and South Lombok Like its namesake in Bali, Kuta Lombok is synonymous with world-class waves but thankfully without the hassle of 24/7 traffic and infuriating beach hawkers. In fact, Lombok’s south coast surf breaks are more than a match for the best in Bali, and savvy surfers are heading here to enjoy miles of uncrowded, adrenaline-fuelled waves. Kuta, invitingly close to Lombok’s new international airport, is the main tourist hub yet remains a fairly tranquil tropical haven favoured by both surfers and adventurous families. It makes for a great base for exploring the rugged southern coastline dotted with numerous breathtaking beaches. Scenic highlights include up-andcoming Tanjung A’an, Gerupak and isolated Ekas Bay.

The Southwest Lombok’s ruggedly beautiful southwest peninsular is largely unexplored by visitors but is now getting serious recognition with the discovery of superb offshore scuba diving and miles of deserted beaches. The main gateway is Sekotong Bay, located just south of Lombok’s main ferry port Lembar and is the jumping off point for Lombok’s ‘Secret Gilis.’ These small offshore islands feature pristine coral reefs and idyllic tropical beaches for a real castaway experience. Heading south, the coastal road winds its way past tiny fishing communities and secluded bays all the way to the tip of the peninsular where the legendary surf breaks of Bangko Bangko (Desert Point) are found — rated among the best in the world.

Mount Rinjani For an alternative to surf, scuba and sandy beaches, a trek up the immense Rinjani volcano is hard to beat. At over 3,700 meters, this is Indonesia’s second highest volcano and makes for challenging 3–4 day trek but the views are definitely worth all the effort. The mountain dominates much of north Lombok and the caldera alone covers a mind-boggling 50 square kilometres. Most climbers only go as far as the crater rim which offers vertigoinducing views down into the volcanic lake but the extra effort to get to the summit will be rewarded with views as far as Java and eastwards across to the island of Sumbawa. If this all sounds too arduous for comfort, the mountain’s foothills offer a wealth of leisurely hiking opportunities. Head to Senaru village for easy-going walks through remote weaving villages and dense jungle to uncover a succession of scenic waterfalls.
