Prof Kerry Black, a renowned oceanographer has created two amazing retreats at both Heaven on the Planet and Ocean Heaven. The resorts are the most eco friendly resorts in Lombok, and provide great support and sustainable business for the nearby nature and community. Whist great care has gone into every aspect of the accommodations, guests can still enjoy great comforts and amazing surrounds.
There really are waves for all levels of surfing here, all year round. Outside Ekas is a 400-500m left reef break with barreling sections suitable for advanced surfers. Inside Ekas is a peak with both left and right hand waves. The left is a much longer and softer wave suitable for beginners and on the other side is a decent right suitable for those more experienced. The Sand Bar directly out the front of the hotel is great for those just beginning to surf, and is the only option for new surfers in Lombok.
The nearby Southern Reefs work well in wet season, and grab all sorts of swell giving the destination waves year-round.
Ocean Heaven has five rooms for the all inclusive packages, and one room for non-package guests.
All of the five package rooms have an ensuite bathroom, a grass roof, solid timber construction and timber shutters or large windows to allow cooling breezes in. Some or the smaller rooms have ceramic tiled bathrooms and many feature rich marble. The majority of the rooms have stone or timber walled construction. Every room enjoys a glass front with amazing views into the bay.
Some guest prefer the more secluded rooms with some preferring to be close to the beach, and other guests enjoy being up high to have a great view of the waves.
Being off-the-grid, electricity is provided via generators for 17 hours per day. At additional cost the electricity can be left on all night for those with medical conditions.
Heaven on the Planet
Heaven on the Planet is the neighbouring accommodation, consisting of a variety of villas within 27 hectares of property. There are over a dozen villas ranging from simple and small romantic villas, to 3 bedroom villas with large living areas. The larger villas enjoy expansive views and you may choose to have your own chef, drivers and guides, or enjoy the resorts restaurant and facilities. The villas overlook the bay and are constructed from timber, glass, limestone, quarts and fossil encrusted marble.
The restaurant and bar overlooks both the pool and bay. Different seating options allow guest to mingle with one another or sneak away for a romantic dinner. On Saturday dining is on the beach with live music, fire, and a full service buffet all under an infinite amount of stars. Vegetarian, vegan, western and Indonesian dishes are all still available in this remote region of Lombok. Beer, wine, spirits and cocktails can be ordered from the pool, the bar, or the restaurant.
