Selong Belanak South Lombok’s new ‘Golden Mile’ coming of age with a vibrant villa scene taking shape
fter spending years as a hidden haven fiercely guarded by locals in the know, it’s safe to say Selong Belanak’s secret is out. Of course Pinterest-perfect ocean scenery such as you’ll find at Selong Belanak can never truly stay hidden forever. There is a real buzz about the place with new developments slowly taking shape in the rolling hills overlooking the bay. Thankfully this is not a mad rush to mass tourism – it is morphing into a decidedly upscale haven with luxe villa developments, wellness resorts and stylish restaurants popping up among the hills. One of the area’s greatest attributes is the sensational views across the bay. Selong Belanak is being dubbed as the new 'golden mile' of South Lombok. The beach really is something special, which arcs around the bay between two forested headlands. The southern end of the beach doubles as a small fishing community and brightly painted fishing boats gently bobbing in the waters is an omnipresent sight. Here you can also grab a bite at one of the many food stalls. The super fine sand gently slopes down into the clear water while further along the sand, there are small but consistent swells perfect for learning how to surf. There is a small community of local surfer boys eager to teach newbies. Despite its growing popularity, the beach itself is rarely crowded. You’ll still encounter farmers leading a herd of cows along the beach each morning. For several years, boutique resort Sempiak Villas has been a constant fixture perched in the hills overlooking the beach. The resort’s beachfront eatery Laut Biru has always been the go-to spot for sunset wining and dining and still attracts diners from far and wide.

In fact the landscape above the beach is arguably among the most desirable real estate in South Lombok nowadays. A collection of sleek modern villas called Coconut Creek is now taking shape in the hills. These artfully designed modern lifestyle villas boast yet more outstanding views of Selong Belanak Bay. Due to both the spacious interiors and the expansive resort grounds laid out in front of you, it has a magical sense of scale. Selong Belanak is not only making waves as a holiday haven but also as a new lifestyle destination to put down roots. The resort style Selong Selo Residences offers an upscale community for home owners to enjoy a stylish new villa lifestyle. It is a fully integrated luxury haven where owners can make their mark on an exciting new lifestyle by designing their own dream villa from scratch. This village style community features a clubhouse, swimming pools, tennis court, kids play area and the newly opened Aura Lounge and Bar. Adding yet more to Selong Belanak’s cache as South Lombok’s hippest holiday hangout is another eye-catching resort called Seven Havens. This architect designed resort is a true haven in every sense and its quirky sloping roof definitely has the wow factor. It is a unique development on many levels, not least its inventive use of eco-friendly ‘rammed earth’ construction. Along with other eco-initiatives employed in its design, this can truly be described as being green from the ground up. This extra focus and commercial activity in the area has obviously seen interest spike in recent times but it’s not all about commercial developments. Despite Selong Belanak’s move into the mainstream, there are still huge swathes of vacant land up for grabs throughout the area, including small plots of land invitingly close to the gorgeous golden sands. Real estate and property development companies such as NAGAINDO, South Lombok Property and Ray White are paving the way for individuals to snap up a small piece of paradise here. A positive knock-on effect of all this activity has been a marked improvement in access to Selong Belanak. New roads have been built and it’s now a breeze getting here from Kuta or direct from the airport.
Forgotten Island Party central Gili T gets a new vibe with the Forgotten Island Festival
bass label Hospital Records have lined up three of their best DJ acts for the ‘Hospitality Beach and Boat party’ featuring Danny Byrd, NU:TONE and Keeno. Rounding off the Forgotten Island playlist is Aussie duo Client Liaison.
Taking place on the 27-28 September, thousands are expected for two days of round the clock beach and boat parties, with a stellar line-up of international and Australian dance acts announced. Aussie electronic duo Peking Duk will man the decks alongside NGHTMRE, aka globetrotting DJ/producer Tyler Marenyi. For those who like their basslines super-heavy, Gili T is laying on some fine ‘Hospitality.’ Leading drum and
It promises to be two massive days of full-on party antics – on land and water – and something a little different from Gili T’s famous reggae vibe. However this is not a happening of Glastonbury proportions. It’s billed as an intimate boutique festival with a specially curated exclusive line-up with a limited capacity, and tickets are going fast. It’s an event striving to complement the paradise setting and the laid back Gili Islands vibe, and is the perfect way to celebrate the last few days of summer.
ili Trawangan is not a place that anyone easily forgets, but this month becomes the latest port of call for the Forgotten Island dance music festival. The inaugural Forgotten Island event was a big success last year in Bali and now Gili T gets the opportunity to prove its hedonistic party island credentials.
unt. Shoot. Capture. Display. But wait, this is hunting with a difference. The Lombok Landscapers are in search of seascapes, mountains, waterfalls, and any number of spectacular settings they can target. They have set their sights on the natural beauty of Lombok, and their trophies are beautiful photographs that they are proud to share. The Lombok Landscapers community is made up of about 200 photographers, mostly local, and ranging in age from fifteen to fifty. There is a mix of backgrounds and interests – professionals and students, office employees and manual workers. Most in the group are amateur photographers, who learned by doing, picked up skills from workshops in Lombok, or were taught by friends. “I started taking photos while I was just a child”, says one member. Some began only recently, encouraged by the group. The Lombok Landscapers Community started in November 2011, as a small gathering, led by Herry Soebagio. Since then, it has grown steadily. Imran Putra Sasak is a relative newcomer to photography. He started in 2012 and in 2014 became head of the group. “It has been quite easy to find others who shared the same interest”, he says, “We found other photographers through social media and through the photography community in Lombok”. They often ‘hunt’ together, in small packs. “Usually there are four to eight people who go around Lombok, to take photos. If there is a special event, though, there can be up to fifty of us all out together”.
Telawas Beach, Central Lombok
The community puts a lot of emphasis on the social dimension. Members rely on social media for their communication, and they find opportunities to meet, and head out to various locations, often on motorcycles, whenever they can find time between work and study.

Hot Spring at Rinjani Mountain
“One member will create an invitation or place a post on social media, asking who would like to take photos in a certain area”, says Imran. “Then other members reply, and the group is organised”. Targets are not too hard to find. The group’s published photos, on Twitter and Facebook pages, show the magnificent scenes they capture. “We focus on nature, and the culture of Lombok and Nusa Tenggarra Barat, and when we have extra money, we have the opportunity to go further around Indonesia”. Community members have their own favourites, but scenes around Rinjani, Kuta and the Gili Islands are popular.
Batu Payung, Pantai Tanjung Aan, Central Lombok
The photographic styles vary, too, but the community shares a common love of landscapes. They are keen to learn professional techniques, and use the best equipment they can. Imran is enthusiastic about graduated neutral-density filters, circular and polariser linear analysers, tripods, and various techniques for flash photography. For those of us who like to point our smartphone cameras at anything that moves (or doesn’t) this says commitment. Especially as the group has no sponsors, and has to buy all of its own gear. “Yes”, Imran tells us, “Our equipment is only as advanced as we can afford”. So why do they do it? As well as for the love of photography, they enjoy the connections. “We get to see the work of other photographers. And it motivates us to work better”. They also take part in photography competitions for the same reasons, and as a learning experience.
Growing and learning are certainly on the agenda. The Lombok Landscapers Group has come a long way from its early days, and wants to be a meeting place for the community to gather, form friendships with fellow photographers, and develop their photography skills. But it’s more than that. “We also support the island of Lombok. Its panoramas make it a paradise for nature tourism. Everywhere there are mountains, beaches, waterfalls, and so many other spots for taking landscape photos. We hope Lombok Landscapers can introduce its beauty into the world”. Lombok Landscapers will soon mark its fifth anniversary. To celebrate, during November and December there will be various workshops, locations hunts, photography excursions, a book launch, exhibitions and social gatherings. For more details of all these activities, you can contact Lombok Landscapers or follow them on Facebook. facebook.com/Landscapelombok/ facebook.com/groups/LombokLS/

INTERVIEW WITH EXECUTIVE CHEF AT SCALLYWAGS
A Recipe for Delicious
ugianto comes from Denpasar, Bali, and his cooking skills have taken him far and wide – and back again. Like his customers, he has found the perfect recipe at Scallywags Seafood Bar and Grill, on Gili Trawangan’s southern shores. Start with a generous serve of traditional Indonesian dishes, the flavours of the Mediterranean, the allure of the freshest seafood, and the irresistible aromas of a beachside BBQ. Then take an experienced chef who designs his menus around his customers’ favourite taste experiences. Add the ocean views, and the relaxed atmosphere, and it’s pretty hard to beat. What is the one dish you love and remember from your Mother’s kitchen? My favourite is Sambal Bongkat. It is a unique sambal that originated in Bali. It’s also called Balinese Torch Ginger Sambal, because bongkot is the Balinese word for torch ginger. You can eat this sambal with fish, chicken or even just plain rice. It is delicious! When did you first become interested in food? I first became interested in food when I was a child. All of my family would cook, and I would always watch them. Then, when I was old enough, they started to teach me how to cook as well. What made you decide to become a chef? I worked in a bakery when I was younger, and that’s when I decided I wanted to work with food. How did your family react when you told them you wanted to become a chef? At first they weren’t happy. It meant I had to work on Sundays, and so I couldn’t spend quite as much time with the family. But they soon realised I was doing something I loved, and now they understand, and are happy for me. And your career so far? Where did you train, and where have you worked? In 1998 I went to the Hotel School – STP Nusa Dua Bali. In those days it was known as BPLP. I studied there for a year and received my diploma.
Then I went to Batam, and for seven years I worked in three different hotels. I started as a cook and worked my way up, until I was an executive sous-chef. After returning to Bali, where I stayed for 8 years, I worked at the Grand Mirage and Le Meridien, again as sous-chef. Later, I spent two years working as sous-chef in the Maldives, and then I came back to Java, where I became executive chef at the Regent Park Hotel in Malang.
Back in Bali, I was executive chef at White Rose, Jocelyne, Ramada Camakila, and the Horison Sunset Road, before moving to Scallywags Resort. Describe or define your style of cooking. My favourite style of cooking is Fusion. Tell us about the concept for your menu at Scallywags Resort. It’s a seafood bar and grill. The focus is international cuisine, and Mediterranean food is a feature. What’s your favourite dish on the menu? I particularly like the Rib-eye Steak –the BBQ sauce is delicious. What do your customers seem to like the best? I’d have to say the BBQ. They love it. We offer steak, seafood, chicken, and a salad bar. What inspires you to come up with new ideas for dishes in the restaurant? I think about the guests – their situation, where they come from, what they like to eat, and so on. Then from there, I decide which dishes I should create and cook. What are your favourite ingredients to cook with? Chili. Definitely. I love to cook with chili – after all, if there’s no spice, there’s no life. What is your favourite kitchen gadget? The kukusan, which is a steamer. I love to use this when I’m cooking traditional food. When you cook with a steamer, you know the food will be cooked perfectly. Describe a typical day at work. I arrive at work at 7am, and I check that the buffet breakfast is running smoothly. Then I do my preparation, and set up schedule for the kitchen. After that we prepare for lunch. I take a break at 4pm, and return at 6pm. Then it’s time to prepare for dinner. We check the BBQ, the supplies, and the salad bar, to make sure everything is properly stocked. And of course dinner includes the ‘famous Scallywags BBQ’.
What is the biggest challenge in your job? I would say the biggest challenge is training the staff. Not all the staff have been to cooking school, and some hadn’t worked in a hotel or kitchen previously, so I need to train them all, from the beginning. When you’re at home, what do you like to eat? Do you ever cook at home? I’m an adventurous eater. I like to try anything, but I really love to eat chicken, with sautéd sambal and rice. But no, I don’t cook when I am at home. What do you like most about living and working on Gili Trawangan? I like the island, the people, and just being here in general. And I like being able to pass my experience onto my staff. I also enjoy seeing the guests happy when they eat at Scallywags. What do you like to do in your spare time? When I have time, I like to rest and spend time with my family. I also enjoy fishing. Other than creating great food, what are the most important qualities that make a successful chef? There are three things I can think of. Getting the portion size right. Being consistent in your cooking. And always coming up with new ideas. Do you have any tips for budding chefs? You must have discipline to be a good chef. You need to follow the standard, and also have a good knowledge of basic cooking, and ingredients. And finally, you must always want to learn more. Who is your favourite celebrity chef? My favourite chef is Paul Bocuse. He is a French chef, from Lyon. His food is simple but always tasty. If you hadn’t become a chef, what do you think you might be doing right now? I think I would be a tour guide. That would suit me because I like to talk with people.

emongrass, a perennial plant with long, thin leaves, is native to many Asian countries. Called daun sereh in Indonesian, it has been used for its culinary and medicinal purposes since ancient times. Packed with vitamins A and C, folate, folic acid, magnesium, zinc, copper, iron, potassium, phosphorus, calcium and manganese, itâ€™s no wonder this plant is a nutrient powerhouse. Lemongrass is commonly used in Asian cuisine, especially in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam. Its taste and scent is similar to lemons but is sweeter and milder. It is used for adding flavour to curries, soups and meat dishes, and is also commonly used in the preparation of teas, puddings, sweets and baked goods. This quick-spreading grass is known to combat various digestive health problems such as indigestion, constipation, heartburn, diarrhoea and bloating. It contains antiseptic compounds that kill bad bacteria and parasites in the digestive tract and repopulate good bacteria in the colon, which in return promotes healthy digestion. Similarly, lemongrass has properties which support healthy cholesterol levels. Research has found that lemongrass contains a cancer-fighting component called citral. This liquid, which gives lemongrass and other citrus oils their fragrance, has been found to stop the growth of cancer cells without damaging the growth of healthy cells. Cancer patients are encouraged to consume lemongrass during chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Plus, the antioxidant properties in lemongrass lower the risk of getting cancer by fighting free radicals. Lemongrass is sometimes called fever grass, as it has beneficial effects in lowering fevers. The antibacterial and antifungal properties help the body cope with coughs and fevers. It is also conveniently packed with vitamin C, super boosting the immune system to fight infection. Other symptoms of cold and flu such as headaches, muscle and joint pain and hampered breathing can be relieved by lemongrass oil. Simply consume
lemongrass tea each day or mix a few drops of the oil with warm water and inhale the steam to relieve congestion. For all the detox enthusiasts out there, lemongrass should be an essential part of your detox regime. This powerful detoxifier helps remove toxins, uric acid and bad cholesterol, purifying the liver, kidneys, bladder and pancreas. It also helps with blood circulation, which is important for an overall healthy metabolism. If you are a fan of big meals, drinking a cup of lemongrass tea after a meal will help eliminate excess fat much faster and reduce water retention in the body. As natural beauty products are becoming more popular, the benefits of lemongrass are gaining popularity in the search for healthy skin. The essential oil is extracted from the dried grass by steam distillation and is freely available. Due to its antiseptic, antibacterial and astringent properties, it is an effective cleanser as it reduces the bacterial growth on your skin. Vitamin A in the oil helps cure acne and pimples while minimising the appearance of large pores. The oil cleanses the pores, strengthens skin tissue and acts as a natural toner. As lemongrass essential oil is very concentrated, dilute several drops with water or another base such as olive oil, before applying to the skin. The antiseptic and antibacterial properties are also why lemongrass is used in the production of deodorants as they help combat body odour and fungal and bacterial infections. The easiest way to include lemongrass in your diet is by making tea from its stem. You can find fresh lemongrass in markets anywhere in Indonesia and in Asian supermarkets elsewhere. Simply cut off the root and remove any of the dry outer leaves. Cut up the stem and steep in a cup of boiling water for 5 to 10 minutes. Lemongrass tea works either as a warm, soothing drink or as a chilled beverage for hot days. However you choose to use lemongrass, you canâ€™t help but benefit from this health-packed plant.
Laut Biru A favourite haunt for fine dining in Selong Belanak
eading west out of Kuta along the South Coast, all eyes are fixed firmly on the scenic beach haven of Selong Belanak, one of those Instagram-worthy spots that make the South Lombok coastline such a draw. Selong Belanak has been gaining prominence for a few years now, originally as the archetypal ‘secret spot’ for locals in the know, but now as an eye-catching beach retreat attracting a steady stream of visiting holidaymakers. It is one of the picture perfect arcs of fine white sand that fully deserves all the plaudits it gets. Once you hit the winding, scenic road out of Kuta, you can easily be forgiven thinking there is few options to get a fine meal in this bucolic, sparsely populated stretch of South Lombok. Fear not, hungry travellers, one of the area’s most inspiring ocean vistas is also home to one of the finest beachfront eateries in South Lombok.
The appropriately named Laut Biru sits directly on the beach just meters from the gently lapping waves. It is a light and airy haven constructed of driftwood taken directly from the beach, seamlessly blending with the environment. It has a classy design with a touch of old world colonial influence, offering the option to dine on the sand or indoors. The fresh white lines and aquamarine coloured floor perfectly reflect its ties to the ocean. Laut Biru is open throughout the day, kicking off with a choice of Indonesian and Western breakfast options and full menus for lunch and evening dinner. calamari fritti
Standout dishes include Beef Rosalova - sautĂŠed beef in a cognac sauce, a rare treat of Indian Butter Chicken, Thai Red Chicken Curry and much more. As expected, seafood exerts a big influence, with all produce sourced from local fishermen. Calamari, prawns and a selection of fresh grilled fish are served up daily. There is a fine selection of yummy desserts too, with homemade cheesecake and crĂ¨me brulee among others. It exudes a laid back feel throughout the day as people linger by the beach with a cool drink or cocktail gazing at the surf. As sunset approaches the pace hots up. Sunset drinks and dinner on the beach are incredibly popular and prior reservations are recommended. The combination of fine food, the fashionable ambience and the sight of fishing boats bobbing languidly on the water under a starry sky is a must for a romantic night out. Laut Biru is part of the stylish Sempiak Villas, which is set back on the hill affording eye-catching panoramic views of the Selong Belanak seascape. So why not linger longer and turn a night out of fine food into a luxe staycation.

SEVEN HAVENS LUXURY RESIDENCE
Haven-sent luxury in South Lombok
here are many distinctive lifestyle resort developments in South Lombok nowadays, but few can seriously attest to being utterly unique and iconic. A one-of-a-kind place that promises this is the new Seven Havens Luxury Residence. Perched on a hilltop overlooking Selong Belanak beach, first impressions from afar are eye-catching. Not only does it have the wow factor, its construction is unconventional – something that has never been attempted before in Indonesia, let alone Lombok. Seven Havens aims to offer guests an unconventional holiday hideaway, evidenced by its unique green building design, within an unspoiled area of natural beauty. All this comes without any concession to luxury comforts or top quality hospitality. Walls are made from environmentally friendly ‘rammed earth’ and it features three angled old containers which form the roof of one of the buildings. All wood used is recycled, and despite the inimitable design, perfectly exemplifies the natural surroundings. The creative vision behind the project comes from young architect, Budi Pradono, who has been acclaimed in Indonesia and overseas for his work. The Residence can comfortably accommodate a group of nine in ultimate privacy or couples or families in its individual suite-style ‘havens.’ Each of the havens is unique in size, layout and design, with room for 2, 3 or 4 guests respectively. You get captivating views of the area through wraparound floor to ceiling windows where ample natural light streams through. The
master suite has no less than a 360 degree view of Selong Belanak bay. The en-suite bathroom is also an eye-catching standout with a huge bathtub and indoor ‘floating garden.’ There is a meticulous attention to detail in each haven, with the visually appealing contrast of materials offering a very contemporary, uncluttered and elegant feel. Each has air conditioning, cable TV and high speed internet, and private terrace. The Residence has a homely lounging area decked out in warm, natural colours offering ample space to relax or socialise. It forms part of an integrated open plan living/dining area complete with a large dining table. Social space extends outdoors to the expansive decked sun terrace and dramatic infinity edge swimming pool. True to the resort’s general philosophy, the pool terrace takes on an unconventional shape, offering captivating views of the ocean and surrounding rice paddies from a variety of different angles. Certainly in this part of South Lombok, you will be hard pushed to find panoramas to match it. Selong Blanak is rapidly growing in prominence with a raft of new villa resort developments taking shape. Seven Havens’ location however ensures it is (literally) a cut above the rest. It is hard to resist such a location, particularly when luxury and privacy is key.

Pondok Santi An ocean of lush green awaits at this carefree boutique resort hideaway Pondok Santi breaks the mould on Gili T for natural, sustainable island living.
he calming sounds from the ebb and flow of the ocean can be heard at Gili Trawangan’s Pondok Santi resort, but it is a sea of lush green that is the most visually appealing aspect. It’s fair to say this is Gili T’s most expansive boutique resort, set in hectares of meticulously manicured lawns, with a handful of upscale bungalows dotted around this shady coconut grove. It makes a refreshing change from the usual manic development in Gili T, where seemingly every last metre of vacant land is paved over within the blink of an eye. Pondok Santi is a veritable nature reserve in comparison, and the luxury bungalows themselves also bring out the best of the surroundings. Each of the six Palm View Bungalows are well spaced out affording utmost privacy. They feature alang-alang thatched roofs and traditional materials throughout. The sleek dark wood floors offer a compelling contrast with the crisp white interior wall and queen bed with flowing white drapes. It adds up to a cosy and effortlessly romantic ambience. Out front it’s a very spacious platform veranda for kicking back and enjoy the sea breezes while to the rear is a WC with a real wow factor. The open air bathroom is huge and lush, with a free standing shower unit, wash basin and toilet amid a forest of tropical greenery. The fully equipped Palm View Bungalows come with day bed, in room safe, mini bar, DVD player TV and WiFi. They offer very spacious comforts for a couple, and more expansive options are also available in the Private Pool Bungalows. As the name suggests, you get your
own private pool beside an artfully designed sundeck and garden featuring day bed, sun loungers and cosy outdoor bathroom. There is more contemporary styling to these bungalows with an elegant mix of colour and fabrics framed by whitewashed walls and polished teak floors. It eschews the typical minimalist look and goes for a very homely, luxury feel. A daybed which fits snugly into the alcove and comfy sofa adds yet more lounging options. The fully extendable sliding doors and windows ensure ample natural sunlight comes streaming in along with the welcome respite of gentle sea breezes. At the very heart of this lush green oasis is the new Pondok Santi restaurant, a contemporary lounge style eatery adjacent to an inviting infinity pool. It is a small and cosy spot for cocktails, lunch or evening dinner. There is also option for private dining; a number of tables and thatched berugas are dotted around the grounds and on the private stretch of beach. There is a hive of activity going on behind the scenes at Pondok Santi. In keeping with its pledge to strictly control development and ensure wide open spaces for guests to enjoy, it has developed waste treatment systems and plans are underway for a sustainable organic garden. In the resort’s own words, it is all about “protecting and repairing rather than building and destroying.” It is a very calm and peaceful haven and it may come as a surprise to learn that the creative brains behind the resort is none other than extreme sports pioneer AJ Hackett. The AJ Hackett bungy jumping empire now spans several countries including Russia, Singapore and China. There are no plans for a similar adrenaline fuelled facility here but it doesn’t take a leap of faith to realise Gili Trawangan was crying out for a laid back boutique hideaway such as Pondok Santi. Somewhere guests can enjoy an expansive natural setting just steps from the ocean.

ASTROLOGY — SEPTEMBER 2016
horoscopeofthemonth Aries (March 21–April 19) Fools rush in where angels fear to tread. You have no lack of energy this month, and due to the influence of the planet of stability, Saturn, more staying power than usual. But little details, (and you do hate those, don’t you?) and missed communications become a stumbling block. Unexpected expenses put and dent in your wallet.
Leo (July 23–August 22) You are able to weigh your needs against those of other sand do it well. The only problem is that you are having a difficult time gauging what people in authority want. Your usual good sense in how to grease the wheel of progress is taking a vacation. The best thing you can do is work the plan you know is working.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21) You feel like you want to accomplish a great goal but you are constrained by two things. The first is your own eagerness that can lead you to take rash action. The second is that other people are urging you to be cautious. You may be looking for a loan for a luxury item, but you may be better off for saving for a rainy day.
Taurus (April 20–May 20) Indecision troubles you as certain conditions constrain your actions. You are thinking over old dreams wondering if you can still achieve them. But you may be taking the Universe’s largesse for granted. Things have been going your way for so long that you’ve forgotten how lucky you are. There is nothing you need to do to make you life better other than live it.
Virgo (August 23–September 22) Practical affairs regarding money, fathers, and the home dominate weeks of September. Lots of little details pop up in annoying numbers forcing you to retrace your steps to resolve different situations. Authority figures aren’t happy with results and urge you to work faster and harder. You can handle all with your usual flair so get working.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19) Unexpected events, perhaps the illness of woman close to you, throws your month into disarray. Or you may be misreading the signals of someone that interests you. It may be beneficial to wait until a more propitious times to advance matters of the heart. However, money affairs are moving along nicely. Just don’t take your good fortune for granted.
Libra (September 23–October 22) Your ruling planet, Venus, graces your sign this month bringing you all the lovely things that makes a Libra’s heart quiver. A sudden infusion of cash sparks spending dreams, but you can only do so much with it. You may want to spend it on travel, so pack your bags. However, don’t splurge for new clothes because you can’t afford both.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18) Although you may find communications confusing, this is an excellent month for you. Jupiter, the planet of abundance heralds a successful year in which you can accomplish your hopes and dreams. Wait until the middle of next month to sign contracts and then put all your efforts to finishing work that will open new doors for you.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21) Opportunities exist for you to right old wrongs. However, you must seek these out and develop a plan to take advantage them. They will not fall in your lap. You can ask influential people for advice. Whatever business you are involved in can yield profits. Other people will look to you for leadership. Reap the rewards of being in charge.
Pisces (February 19–March 20) Much of what you hear this month is just plain wrong. Other people are trying to stir the pot, or are misinformed. Check the fine print on contracts and confirm all appointments by phone. Be ready for sudden adjustments to your schedule. Have something you can do should plans fall through. Don’t let other people’s bad moods affect you.
Gemini (May 21–June 20) Not even your dreams comfort you this contentious month. Health issues are a concern and no one person seems to have an answer for you. But no. It’s not all your head. Bones ache, your back hurts, and all you are told is get more sleep and exercise. I tell you what. Give yourself a break. Find a nice pool to sit by and enjoy of the remainder of the fading summer. Cancer (June 21–July 22) This is a good time to get business affairs and your house in order. Think of it as spring cleaning in the fall. You can take a reasoned and practical approach to these matters, even if you do go a little too far and toss more than you need to. Still, it will feel good to look around your less cluttered living space and be proud your checkbook now balanced.
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.
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.
