The beauty of Lombok is in the fact that is not overdeveloped. You will not find a fast food chain on every other corner. Here you can walk through the village, seeing the local chef create meals from the fresh catch of the day. You can see where the vanilla and coffee come from before relaxing the next morning while enjoying a latte made from the finest and freshest ingredients. Paradise has a lot to offer, if you go out and explore it.

For more nature and eco tourism speak to the staff at Sari Inn. We make this our home and we would be delighted to show you the secret spots, introduce you to the locals and bring you to areas of untouched beauty.

From the waterfalls and forests full of monkeys you will see when climbing to the top of Mount Rinjani to the schools of fish of every color when exploring the Japanese wreck, Lombok is your home for outdoor adventure.
