Earthquake Update – August 2018
The recovery of the beautiful island of Lombok from the recent natural disasters is well underway. Kudos to the Indonesian government for taking such quick action to cleaning the earthquake debris and caring for the people.
The Lombok Lodge and its facilities are unaffected. The structures of The Lombok Lodge are earthquake-resistant and designed to protect the building from earthquakes. Neither guests nor team members were injured. The minimal ‘cosmetic’ damage has been fully restored. Guests do not experience any inconvenience, construction noise or limited service while staying at The Lombok Lodge.
In the wake of the recent natural disaster, Dr. TGH M.Zainul Majdi, our Governor at West Nusa Tenggara, has released a statement advising would-be tourists to Lombok on the best way to assist the island’s recovery efforts – “…We welcome tourists to Lombok to keep our people employed and support our recovery from this natural disaster. Those with upcoming holidays to Lombok are being urged to follow through with their plans, as support to the island’s tourism industry and the ability to keep local businesses open and operating is vital for both the island and its citizens.”
In anticipation of more news, please follow our FB updates via https://www.facebook.com/TheLombokLodge as well as the updates on our donation platform https://www.gofundme.com/the-lombok-lodge-team-fundraising
The Indonesian government has placed no travel restrictions at all on either Bali or Lombok and we sincerely hope that we may continue to have the pleasure of welcoming you to the Lombok Lodge!
The people of Lombok now need tourism dollars more than ever to help the island rebuild and recover from this event. Please help us to spread the word that Lombok is safe, open and as beautiful as ever. The longer the tourists stay away the bigger the problems become.
Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport and Lombok International Airport, as well as fast boat services are all operating normally. The Gili islands are being built up and many businesses are already operating. You will indeed be able to visit The Gili Islands, local villages and other interesting places in Lombok.

The people of Lombok are smiling again. The sun is shining. The sky is blue.
