Welcome to our October update.
As you will have seen from last month’s update, there is a lot happening on the ground, so much so, that our updates will now be fortnightly until the end of the year.
This update includes:
✧ Direct Singapore-Lombok flights relaunch
✧ What’s happening in Lombok?
✧ Samara Bay and Samara Hills construction update
DIRECT SINGAPORE-LOMBOK FLIGHT RELAUNCH
Scoot’s Airbus A320 in Lombok International Airport
Singapore – Lombok flights recommenced last week. This means that today Lombok is served with direct international flights from both Singapore and Malaysia. Not only is this relaunched Singapore route a handy gateway for those based in Singapore, it allows for smooth transfers across the globe with bags checked all the way through to Lombok.
Air Asia is expected to fly from both Melbourne and Perth direct in early 2023. These international flights are accompanied by daily domestic flights from across Indonesia including both Jakarta and Bali.
Pre-pandemic, Lombok was experiencing 20% year-on-year growth in terms of tourism arrivals and has been the fastest-growing tourism market in the region. We expect this newly added airlift to push Lombok to new heights as the region continues to reopen to travel.
WHAT’S HAPPENING IN LOMBOK
Pullman Lombok Resort suite
The 2022 Superbike World Championship Pirelli is almost here. Whether you are a superbike fan or not, the Moto GP puts Lombok on the map as well as attracts world-class infrastructure and in turn offers a huge tourism boost.
Earlier this month, the Mandalika circuit also hosted the Shell Eco-marathon; a global academic programme challenging teams from over 50 countries to design and build energy-efficient cars.
October also celebrated the Lombok IRONMAN triathlon, attracting athletes from around the world. IRONMAN is seen as the most well-known brand for triathlon and these events bring in new international visitors to the island attracted by health and wellness.
Pullman hotel has officially opened its doors. It is the first globally recognised 5* hotel to open in South Lombok and puts the area on the map for many overseas visitors.
SAMARA BAY CONSTRUCTION UPDATE
Latest photos showing the great progress on the roof installation of the Samara Bay Clubhouse and starting work on the infinity pools
The Samara Bay Clubhouse construction continues to make good progress. The roof is being installed just in time for the rainy season. Once complete, we will be moving on to the interior fit-out. The two swimming pools are now also taking shape.
SAMARA HILLS CONSTRUCTION UPDATE
Latest photo showing the Farm Shop roof fully installed and starting works on the floor
Farm-to-table shop roof is now on. This building will serve as a project management office in the short term so that our clients and the construction team have an area to review designs and materials as their villa comes to life.
