Lombok is known for its soft sandy beaches, colourful marine life and the mighty Mount Rinjani – Indonesia’s second highest peak. Given its proximity to Bali, the island remains remarkably untouched by mass tourism and its ability to offer a completely different, much more rural cultural experience makes it a contrasting counterpart for those visiting Bali. Lombok is much admired for its slow pace, the quality of the water – crystal clear, calm and perfect for swimming, and incredible scenery with forested mountains, paddy fields and coconut palms.
LHM (Legian Hotel Management) has announced they will launch their latest project, The Legian Sire, Lombok, on May 19th, 2020. Located on one of Lombok’s finest beaches, the 3.8 kilometre Sire Beach, the all-suite and villa resort will have staggering views towards the Gili islands and Bali’s Mount Agung. It will be made up of The Legian Sire, The Club by The Legian Sire, and The Residences by The Legian Sire – which will launch as a second phase of the project and consist of 15 hotel-managed residences for sale.
Set to make a bold and luxurious design statement on the island of Lombok, the hotel interiors are by Studio Affandy & Yeo, a boutique design studio whose founders Agnes Affandy and Shaun Yeo are prodigies of Indonesian design legend Jaya Ibrahim – interior designer of The Legian Seminyak, Bali. Affandy and Yeo’s vision for the Lombok project was to create calm, timeless spaces which compliments Ibrahim’s work at The Legian Seminyak, bringing synergy to the project alongside a strong sense of place. Local culture and craftsmanship is celebrated throughout, with hand woven ‘Tenun Ikat’ fabrics from Sumba and exquisitely detailed ‘lattice’ walls – hand carved in solid teak from Sumbawa. The Architecture is by award-winning ESA International, headed up by Indonesian talent Putu Edy Semara. Highlights include a two-tiered swimming pool, one tier measuring 70-metres and the other 50-metres and the cleverly designed shape of the resort which allows every spacious suite to have a large, ocean-facing private terrace.
The Legian Sire, Lombok is boutique in size with 46 suites, including a penthouse. All of these overlook the sea and are notably generous in size, with the entry-level suites measuring over 100 square metres. One Bedroom Lotus Suites will have expansive terraces each with a beautiful pond cleverly designed to cool Lombok’s warm breeze. Ground-floor One Bedroom Club Suites will have a Butler and direct access to the resort’s pool and The Club Lounge, which serves complimentary refreshments exclusively for guests staying in Club Suites or Villas. The One Bedroom Pearl Suites and Sire Suites will be best for sunset views along with The Legian Suite, which will have two floors, a full-sized rooftop infinity pool and three bedrooms, set in 1,000 square metres of living space. Those looking for ultimate exclusivity can opt to stay in super-chic The Club by The Legian Sire, set to be the most sought-after accommodation in Lombok. The Club comprises 15 pool villas including the palatial 1,700 square metre The Beach Estate. This spectacular villa includes three bedrooms, direct beach access and is one of Lombok’s most beautiful venues for weddings and events. Club benefits will include airport transfers, a private butler, laundry, daily afternoon tea, cocktails and canapés at The Club Lounge as well as complimentary private bar.
Wellness at The Legian Sire will incorporate bespoke spa treatments, nutrition, fitness and highly personalised programmes. An interactive Apothecary Bar will see Wellness Practitioners hand-blending freshly made oils, infusions, poultices and compresses whilst a Juice Bar will serve a selection of freshly harvested fruit juices. Ingredients will be grown in the The Wellness Garden, where guests can also enjoy alfresco spa treatments in The Wellness Bale. Daily yoga, mindfulness meditation, positive affirmation and visualisation sessions – hosted in The Yoga Bale overlooking the ocean – as well as PT, HIIT and Group Spin sessions will be available.
Organic, local and sustainably sourced ingredients will be utilised at The Restaurant – a contemporary a la carte ‘sea-and-farm-to-table’ all-day-dining option. The Vegetarian – Lombok’s only vegetarian restaurant will use only organic, home-grown vegetarian ingredients. Whilst The Lobby Lounge and Bar will serve coffee, afternoon tea and cocktails and The Cucina – a casual alfresco dining option will offer salads and freshly caught fish as well as homemade pizza and pasta dishes. Healthy eating will play a central role at The Legian Sire. As part of the resort’s overall wellness concept a nutritionist and the expert team of chefs will be able to curate gluten-free, vegan and raw food menus for guests upon request.
Getting there won’t be hard to do. Lombok is easily accessible with more than ten flights a day from Bali, as well as direct flights from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Perth.
