Hi Life: Villa Rental: Sira Beach House, Lombok, Indonesia
Jun 25, 2012
Independent reviews of fine holiday rental properties across South East Asia.
From the thatched roofs and locally-quarried stone, right down to the villa’s tableware, textiles, furniture and fabrics, almost everything at Sira Beach House is locally produced; even the chef’s red hot chilli peppers – from which Lombok takes its name – are grown in the villa’s organic vegetable garden. And it doesn’t stop there. For a deeper foray into Sasak life (the ethnic group to which the majority of Lombok’s population belongs), villa staff will take you to meet the women artisans who create Lombok’s famed pottery and textiles.
