Castaway beach campLombok, Indonesia
If fantasies of being shipwrecked on a faraway isle fill your thoughts, check in at Jeeva Beloam. On a secluded beach surrounded by a nature reserve, you’ll find a string of recycled timber and alang-alang beach huts, all facing the ocean.
The huts have a rustic charm – complete with huge, netted beds – and guests spend their days basking on the beach, lazing on their terrace (Jeeva has a library should you finish the books you brought with you) and plunging into the ocean.
There’s snorkelling off the beach and sea kayaks for exploring the coast. Better still there’s no TV or wi-fi, so you can completely retreat and revive your addled mind.
- Disconnecting from the world in your tranquil surroundings
- Basking in the seclusion of your own private beach
- Enjoying unencumbered views of the ocean
- Being completely isolated from the outside world; there’s no public transport available and you can’t just nip out to the shops…
- Bathing yourself in bug repellent on a regular basis
Go to Lombok via via Bali (flight or ferry), Jakarta (flights with Garuda Indonesia and Lion Air) and Singapore (flights with Silk Air). Jeeva Beloam is a 90-minute drive from Lombok International Airport and there are no public transport routes to the camp so you’ll have to organise to be picked up.
- Linen and towels
- Tea and coffee facilities
- Ceiling fans
- Showers (separate)
Camp houses start from US$285 per night for two people, including all meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner), a choice of activities (snorkelling, kayaking, soft trekking and biking) and return airport transfer.
