Feel like getting away from it all? Hop on a ferry or catch a flight out to the neighbouring islands of Lombok, Nusa Lembongan or the Gili Islands. Your island getaway will boasts all the fittings and fixtures you’d expect of a luxury vacation rental - from lush gardens with private pools, to beautifully appointed living spaces and large outdoor compounds. Impeccable housekeeping service is guaranteed, so all your housekeeping needs - from cooking, to grocery shopping and laundry - will be well taken care of. More often than not, your villa will enjoy a seafront location, with uninterrupted sea vistas or direct beach access. A 30-minute boat ride from Sanur will lead towards the sandy, picture-perfect shores of Nusa Lembongan. The beaches are usually busy with avid surfers, but the coasts further south on the island, like Dream Beach or Sunset Beach offer a respite from the crowds. Renowned dive sites in the area, like Crystal Bay, Manta Point and Blue Corner offer opportunities for sighting the rare mola mola, but with strong currents and cold waters, these sites are best explored by advanced divers. Most vacationers arrive at the Gili Islands via a fast boat from Sanur, Padang Bai or Amed. The duration of the rides vary, and may last between 45 minutes to one and a half hours. The Gili Islands are made up of a trio of islands: Gili Air, Gili Meno and Gili Trawangan. The latter, with its gorgeous beaches, laidback ambience and vibrant nightlife scene is the most sought-after destination among villa travellers. But there’s more to the island than the sand, sea and parties - unwind with strolls along the beach, stretch it out in an outdoor yoga session or drink up to a magical sunset show at a beachfront venue. The fastest way of getting from Bali to Lombok is via a 30-minute flight. Once you’ve touched down, check in at your beachfront villa before heading out to discover the best attractions on the island - from picturesque white sand beaches, to excellent surf, dense forests, snaking hiking trails and extensive rice fields. Families will enjoy exploring the temple compounds of Pura Suranadi or Pura Meru, hiking up the imperious Mt. Rinjani, watching the cascading waterfalls of Sendang Gile and Tiu Kelep or discovering the sights and sounds of Ampenan, an old town dotted with Balinese temples, colonial-style buildings and a bustling traditional market.
