North Lombok is perhaps one of the most dramatically beautiful locations you could imagine for getting away from it all. As you are driven along the coast from the airport, you are surrounded on one side by picture-book vistas of pristine bays lined with traditional Sasak fishing boats, and by a brooding, jungle-covered, active volcano on the other. This villa is far from civilization and, as a result, deeply relaxing.
The four-bedroom, Villa Anandita is huge, occupying 1.5 hectares of palm-tree-jewelled, absolute beachfront land which was once a coconut plantation. Every few metres mature palms sway in the breeze, perfect stand-ins for extra fielders in an undermanned game of rounders or softball: hit a tree on the full and you’re out! The main living pavilions are arranged around a 26m, jungle-style swimming pool, complete with Jacuzzi, waterfall and lots of lovely natural bends and curves, while the four, bedroom pavilions are set well apart from each other, deep within the gorgeous gardens.
The villa has a wonderful team of staff who are actively encouraged to ‘get stuck in’ with the guests. They will happily drop everything to take you kayaking out beyond the reef, or even make up numbers for a game of volleyball. Everything for your entertainment is here, from snorkelling equipment, a fleet of bicycles, board games DVDs, satellite TV to a billiard table. Meals can be ordered from the menu, or the staff will be happy to take care of your grocery shopping if you’d rather self-cater (all food is on guest account).
But even with this great choice of things to do, the real focus at Villa Anandita is the spectacular Sira beach - ideal for long lazy walks with lots of pretty shells to be combed from the powdery white sands. From the garden looking out to the horizon, or from the sea looking back to the mountains, you would be hard pressed to find a better looking stretch of sand anywhere else on Earth.
