Chirping Mania at The Villa Estate

24 March 2022

20th of June 2022

In Loving Memory of Jan Grondelaers (10.05.1920 – 12.03.1997)

Escape to ‘Private World’ of the brand new Private Villa Estate – by The Lombok Lodge Hospitality – where beautiful Rice Paddies, stunning Mountains Views, Fresh Sea Breezes and the Sparkling Waters of the Ocean greet you.

From Sunrise to Sunset, The Estate is Authentic & Unforgettable.
Lombok at its Purest!



Visiting beautiful Lombok, you will see many bird-cages hanging in people’s houses in Lombok villages. For decades, Indonesians have kept birds, which have come to signify status and peace of mind. A third of households in Indonesia are thought to keep birds as pets, according to a study by Oxford University researchers.

Songbird contests, a phenomenon known as Kicau-mania / Chirping Mania, are also hugely popular in Indonesia. Weekly kicauan contests offer winners the chance to take home up to several thousand dollars. Through transmigration programs many Javanese people have spread across Indonesia, and they introduced bird keeping to local people. One type of bird that is favored by many chirping mania is the Burung Kacamata (Oriental White Eye Bird)

Did you know that every Beach Villa at The Estate is home to three beautiful ‘Burung Kacamata’ or beautiful Oriental White Eye Birds?

Allow me to introduce you – ‘Don, Doni & Dest’ – the Oriental White Eye Birds of ‘Villa Dua’  at the East Wing of The Estate. And to – ‘Sam, Stievie & Sem’ the birds of Villa Solas at the west wing of The Estate.

Both 3-Bedroom villas are now fully operational and trust me, it’s so much joy when the little, tiny birds sing big, sweet songs in the villas.



The Oriental white-eye is a small perching bird in the white-eye bird family. They are easily identified by the distinctive white eye-ring and overall yellowish upperparts.

This bird is 9 cm long with yellowish olive upper parts and a white eye ring.



The three birds at your Private Villa will be bathed every morning by spraying them with fresh water
After daily bathed, the births at your Villa will go ‘Sunbathing & Drying for about 1-2 hours when the sun is bright
The Food Ritual of the burung kacamata’s includes dry food, Lombok Bananas and fresh papaya
At early dawn and again at dusk. Rarely during the day. Reputedly one of the best singing Birds
Unless you’ve kept pet birds before, it’s difficult to imagine just how much both ‘Burung Kacamata’s can bring to you during your stay at The Private Villa Estate, by The Lombok Lodge.
These intelligent and beautiful holiday companion birds will reward you in so many wonderful ways. Let’s take a look at just a few of the ways that having birds can benefit your holiday

It is truly is a lovely feeling to hear your birds greet you when you come ‘home’ after a beach day at ‘Bagno Di Gili’ or when you get up in the morning. Talking to and playing with your villa birds is a great way to help lower your stress levels and your blood pressure. It’s the same with any pet, but you have the added benefit with birds of being able to just sit there and enjoy their beautiful singing.

Come and experience the feeling yourself. ‘…Stay Where the World Can’t Find You…’ #ThePrivateVillaEstate #ByTheLombokLodge #LombokAtItsPurest #TheLombokLodgeHospitality
