For years, the beachfront Novotel Lombok Resort & Villas was the lone outpost of a global hotel chain on the scenic south coast of Bali’s once-overlooked eastern neighbor. No longer. Accor has now debuted its second property in the area, this time as part of the master-planned Mandalika development. Pullman Lombok Mandalika Beach Resort is billed as the first five-star resort built in the precinct, which is also home to a racing circuit that recently hosted the Indonesian leg of the MotoGP. The property offers ready access to a string of beautiful surfing beaches and rugged headlands, in addition to the traditional villages of Sade and Ende.

Pullman Lombok has 257 rooms, suites, and villas, whose modern, pared-back interiors come interspersed with traditional artwork by the island’s indigenous Sasak people. A private balcony attached to each room affords views of either the hotel gardens or the Indian Ocean. Guests who book a suite or villa will also enjoy bath amenities handmade with locally sourced ingredients.

Beyond the art-filled open-air lobby, called The Junction, the resort features four dining and drinking venues. Aer Restaurant serves an array of comfort food and international fusion fare from morning to night; Sgara Seafood Restaurant is the place to go at sundown to feast on fresh catch; the Lobby Lounge specializes in coffee and cocktails; and Lalo, the swim-up bar, offers summery drinks to travelers while they cool off in the beach-side lagoon pool. Other recreational facilities include a gym, a kids’ club, and the Pullman Spa, which has a quartet of treatment pavilions and reflexology chairs.

As for event spaces, the 230-square-meter Mandalika Ballroom holds up to 300 guests; it features a 200-plus inch LCD video wall and a large pre-function area with floor-to-ceiling windows. Four separate function rooms have a capacity of up to 70 people. The property is a 20-minute drive from Lombok International Airport, served with direct flights from Singapore aboard Scoot and Kuala Lumpur aboard AirAsia.

Pullman Lombok’s opening special is priced from IDR1,546,000 (US$99) net per room per night, inclusive of daily breakfast for two. Reservations must be made by November 30, 2022 for stays through January 2023. Members of ALL – Accor Live Limitless can earn quadruple Reward points if they book until November 6 for stays until December 18, 2022.
