OUR DESIGN PHILOSOPHY – TROPICAL
The Samara Lombok design philosophy is a harmonious blend of modern architecture and locally sourced materials, accompanied by thoughtful interior design, all aimed at creating a seamless and consistent resort look and feel.
We embrace the essence of tropical design by integrating key features that celebrate the natural beauty of our surroundings. Our villas are thoughtfully embedded into the landscape, allowing guests to immerse themselves in lush vegetation and the contours of the land. Expansive floor-to-ceiling doors and windows bring the beauty of the outdoors inside, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere while maximizing the mesmerizing sea-views.
We take nature one step further by incorporating indoor landscaping, connecting guests even more deeply with the tropical paradise. Our choice of materials and interior design elements is carefully selected to withstand the tropical climate, ensuring both comfort and sustainability.

BLOOMING BOUNTY AT OUR ORGANIC GARDENS
Exciting updates from Samara Lombok’s Organic Gardens! We have received our Organic Certification for all our food products and its cultivation system. This certification guarantees that every step of our process, from planting the seeds up until the packaging and delivery, is entirely organic and free from harmful chemicals or contamination.
This year has also been a record-breaker for us as we ramped up our food production by 50% and rice harvest by 22%. As you read this, our farmers are busy harvesting a bounty of goodness as our fields are currently brimming with chillies, red onions,and bok choy!
Over the past couple of months, our team has also been tirelessly dedicated to honey and egg production throughout our site. In our Upper Gardens, we’ve set up 100 beehives to craft our very own trigona honey. The magic of trigona honey lies in its remarkable taste, a result of the diverse nectar collection from various flowers by our hardworking bees. Aside from honey, we’ve also recently started our egg production with 50 hens actively laying up to 30 fresh eggs each day.
GREEN LABEL PROJECT: EMPOWERING LOCAL FARMERS
One of the many community initiatives that we do at Samara Lombok is our Green Label Project, where we partner with ten local farmers across several local villages, allowing them to cultivate over 2,000sqm of land and empowering them to become independent organic farmers with the guidance of our Agronomist Manager, making sure that they implement organic methods of cultivation that is in line with the Samara Lombok standards.
Our primary focus through this project is to promote sustainable farming practices in our surrounding local community. We wholeheartedly support these dedicated farmers by purchasing all of their organic produce for use across Samara Lombok.
Together, we’re sowing the seeds for a greener future!
