Following three years of success with The Apurva Kempinski Bali, Kempinski Hotels is once again laying claim to another premium beachfront location in Indonesia for the launch of The Apurva Kempinski Lombok.

Set to open in 2027, The Apurva Kempinski Lombok is situated on a 14.3 hectares plot of land in a secluded bay along Lombok’s southwestern coast. The luxury resort offers 200 suites and villas, starting from 65sqm, making them one of the largest entry-level rooms in Indonesia.

“The resort will complement the already successful The Apurva Kempinski Bali, giving guests the opportunity to enjoy an unforgettable island-hopping adventure across two spectacular destinations. This new signing reinforces our position as a steadily expanding hotel management group with outstanding properties and reflects our grand ambitions for the region,” says Bernold Schroeder, CEO of Kempinski Group.

Hotel facilities in The Apurva Kempinski Lombok include an integrated spa and wellness centre, and five dining venues with a focus on the island’s rich culinary traditions. It will also feature a range of meeting facilities and an outdoor party lawn for corporate events or destination weddings.

The Apurva Kempinski Lombok is one of the first properties that will be part of a bigger mixed-use development that will span 157 hectares, housing up to 10 hotels and resorts on Mekaki Beach, as well as an organic farm, a ranch and a horse-riding centre.

The development is spearheaded by the Indonesian government who plans to drive tourism growth in Lombok and three other designated areas across Indonesia. There are also plans to extend the runway at Lombok International Airport, upgrade Port Lembar on the west of the island to accommodate luxury yachts and cruise liners and build a new international hospital.

Lombok is currently accessible now via a 30-minute domestic flight from Bali or a 1.5 hour ferry ride. Alternatively, guests can take a two-hour flight from Jakarta.
