Lombok Property And Why Investors And Enjoying Great Returns
Next door to Bali, Indonesia’s crown jewel for tourism, lies an almost untouched and overlooked neighbour, Lombok. This island that is reminiscent to what Bali was 20 to 30 years ago, with endless rugged natural beauty, rich traditional culture, historical landmarks, and the easy-island lifestyle. Honeymooners and adventurers or those looking for a more peaceful getaway are drawn to the shores of Lombok. This is due to the island’s idyllic charm, unparalleled diving in crystal clear waters, a great escape from crowds and traffic of Bali and the main cities of Indonesia, or for exploring numerous majestic waterfalls and Indonesia’s second highest volcano – Mount Rinjani. Like Bali before it, Lombok is now becoming an attractive option for investment, as the island is just coming on the world scene with billions of dollars dedicated to its development. Lombok property investment, with the island’ scenic and secluded beaches and uncombed lands, carries a wealth of possibility and opportunity.
Lombok Property Investment Has Encouraging Investment Returns
Lombok is in the region of West Nusa Tenggara and has been a hidden gem for those looking for seclusion, a tropical island paradise, and an immersion into vibrant culture of the Sasak. Recently, however, Indonesia’s tourism officials are setting the spotlight on Lombok and nine other regions, declaring them the 10 “New Bali’s,”- the up-and-coming hotspots for tourism. In 2017 Indonesia President Joko Widodo and the Tourism Ministry announced plans and their ambition to attract more than 20 million international tourists to the archipelago by the end of 2019. They selected the 10 “New Bali” spots for their growing popularity and potential, with dedicated funding for infrastructure development such as upgrading their airports, and overall improvements for access, available services and amenities. With the ardent support from the President to see Lombok thrive and become a world-class destination, there is a unique window of opportunity for investors to buy into this market that is on a solid upward curve. Such developments as the commercial Mandalika project, an expanded airport, the MotoGP and the real-estate haven Kuta Heights Development are prime examples of why, Lombok property for sale is incredibly attractive for the keenest of real estate hunters, yielding incredible returns.
Enhanced connectivity and access to the New Bali’s is an area of particular focus, bridging the gaps between Indonesia’s islands. This commitment for Lombok as a New Bali was further driven in May 2019 when AirAsia, the leading airline carrier for Southeast Asia, chose Lombok International Airport as its newest hub, joining the ranks as one of five hubs in Indonesia. With that, the airline also announced new daily direct flights from Perth and Kuala Lumpur. Direct flights from Singapore are already in place through SilkAir. Additionally, both Garuda Air and Batik Air offer flights from the capital city of Jakarta (approximately 2 hours), with direct flights on Garuda from major destinations like London, Amsterdam and Bangkok. Further improvements and expansions at the airport will open the gates for more international flights in the near future. In 2018 the State airport operator PT Angkasa Pura I (AP I) allocated more than USD $14 million in budget funds to be used for upgrades for terminal infrastructure and expansions, and development of the Taxi Way and Drop Zone. Such improvements were needed as the tourism numbers are on a significant rise, and budget continues to be allocated to allow seamless, safe access to the island. The airport will be easily accessible on the desirable south and west part of the island, a major benefit for the Kuta Heights Development and commercial investments surrounding the Mandalika Resort Project. For international destinations that do not fly direct to Lombok yet, the island is also easy to reach with just a short 30-minute flight or a 1-hour 30-minute fast boat ride from Bali, which has direct flights from more than 50 international locations.

Lombok is seen not just as the Next Bali, but the next Nusa Dua, the resort area of Bali known for its five-star resorts and exhibition centers, and that recently hosted 15,000 attendees for the IMF and World Bank Annual Meeting. With Lombok, the Tourism Ministry has pledged over US $65 million, to growing the island’s MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions) market and potential for hosting focusing on large-scale events, worldwide corporate meetings and exhibitions. The largest stride in this endeavour is taken by The Indonesia Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC), a state-owned company that successfully built The Nusa Dua, a 350-hectare multi-use tourism estate on Bali. The ITDC has been selected to develop a new resort destination named the Mandalika Resort Project, located in the Kuta Beach region in the south. Mandalika is a US$3 billion project on the southern edge of Lombok, and is currently under construction on a 1,175-hectare plot of land. The development will house 12,000 hotel rooms, with the world-renowned hospitality brands such as Pullman, Paramount Resort, Club Med, Grand Mercure Hotel. There will also be a 350,000-square-meter commercial space, a 78-berth yacht marina, an eco-park, water park, and theme park within the destination.
Another large-scale project for Lombok and the ITDC is the hosting of the MotoGP in 2021 in Kuta. This will be Indonesia’s first world-class racing event in more than two decades – the last events being in 1996 and 1997 in Bogor, West Java. The monumental deal was signed in January 2019 with Dorna Sports the MotoGP operator, for an event along a street circuit complex in the southern part of Lombok. Construction will begin in October on the 4.32-kilometer racetrack, which will wind through mountains and pristine beaches, and showcase the beautiful scenery of the island on the world stage. For developing the Mandalika street circuit complex, ITDC is collaborating with France’s Vinci Construction Grand Projects. The two companies signed a US$1-billion deal for a 15-year development of the race track and of the foundation and underground utilities system, as well as roads and highways. The street circuit venue is set to accommodate up to 150,000 spectators. The MotoGP will bring world-wide attention, media, sponsors, and visitors to Lombok, especially the southern part of the island. Anyone investing now into real estate in Lombok Indonesia would be getting in early, and have a very large head start on the rest, as the Lombok sale and land values will only increase leading up to and after the race, particularly in the Kuta region where the race takes place.
Lombok Real Estate Is Encouraging For The Savvy Investor
Mandalika will set the tone and put Lombok firmly on the map as a new-age eco-tourism destination. To prevent Lombok from following the same path as Bali, which experienced unbridled and rapid development, with little regard for environmental issues and sustainability. The story will be different in Lombok. In 2014 a government mandate was introduced calling for 80% of new tourism developments on Lombok land to feature some form of eco-tourism. Lombok is part of “The Green Future” for Indonesia, promoting initiatives that incorporate environmentally friendly features and technologies, to benefit not just incoming investors and tourists, but the local communities as well. These include farms for solar energy and Sea Water Reverse Osmosis (SWRO) plants for clean water in the Kuta region. The area also plans for an electric light rail train and cable cars, continuing the push for public transportation in developed regions of Indonesia. For projects like Mandalika and other new developments, there is also an agreement for the builds to have 51% dedicated ‘green space’ to preserve the natural beauty of the land, and to not mar the panoramic views and cultural authenticity.
