This is a great villa for families or groups of friends, with loads of space, private places to escape and plenty of entertainment for all ages. The pairing of the six bedrooms means that three families can easily escape from each other in their own separate areas. During our visit to the villa the staff surprised us by setting up a sunset table for two on the sand, within a circle of candles and flaming torches, to create a most romantic feast of local dishes. Only after the sun went down did we realise that the ‘circle’ was actually a heart shape! The chef has created a great menu and can turn his hand to anything but loves to indulge his guests with Lombok specialties. Due to the remoteness of the area, you’ll be asked to order your first meal and any special requests in advance of your arrival. The kitchen will operate on a menu or grocery system according to your preferences.

Fully self-contained, we didn’t leave the confines of the villa grounds except to swim in the ocean. The electronic beeper that we were given to summon the staff at anytime was a great idea (and necessary due to the size of the place). No one claims that this villa is 100% environmentally sustainable but great care has been taken in the design to be as eco-friendly as possible. We were very aware that, although were indulging in six-star luxury, we were having a low impact – the pool is chemical free, our long showers and baths were solar heated and the water we were using was being recycled to nurture the organic gardens.

Highlights

There is a true sense of place at Sira Beach House – it exudes Lombok charm – and the villa’s glorious west-facing beach is hard to beat for stunning sunsets. Another highlight was the staff, who discreetly kept out of our way: we didn’t see them when we didn’t want them, yet thanks to the electronic beepers they jumped to serve us as soon as they were called. The terry towelling sun beds were soft and comfortable and a nice change from scratchy canvas.

Surprises

With so much beautiful beach to look at, we couldn’t quite understand why three of the bedrooms face the garden, but then the gardens are lovely too, and there’s plenty of time to enjoy the beach view during the day.
