All About Lombok Island

Getting There & Around

Overland travel is arduous in mountainous Nusa Tenggara, particularly in Flores. Lombok, Sumbawa and Timor have fairly decent surfaced main roads and relatively comfortable bus services.

Get off the highways and things slow down considerably, however. Ferry services are frequent and consistent in the dry season, but in the wet season, when the seas get rough, your ship may be cancelled for days, weeks even.

Fortunately, several airlines now cover the main inter-island routes, as few travellers who have endured the punishing long haul across Nusa Tenggara by surface transport are up for a repeat.

Don't be scared off, however, as an influx of fast boats and air cnnections have made Nusa Tenggara more accessible than ever. In addition to increased international flight to Lombok's new Airport, Including regular flights to and from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Australia, domestic links to Maumere, Bajawa, Ende and Labuanbajo in Flores, and Tambolaka in Sumba, have multiplied to augment the typical sound links throughout Indonesia to/from Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara's main hub.


Long overshadowed by its superstar neighbour, there's a steady hum about Lombok that's beginning to turn into a distinct buzz.Blessed with exquisite white-sand beaches, the gorgeous Gili island, epic surf, a lush forested interior, and hiking trails through tobacco, rice fields and jungle, Lombok is fully loaded with tropical allure.

You'll probably notice mighty Gunung Rinjani, Indonesia's second-highest volcano, its summit complete with hot springs and a dazzling crater lake.  For years this island has been touted as Indonesia's next hot destination.

Finally the reality seems to have caought up with the hype and with a new international airport and renewed interest from around the globe, Lombok's time is now.

Getting There & Away


Lombok's new airport, near praya, opened in 2011, rendering Mataram even more meaningless to most international travellers. However, major airlines retain ticket offices in Mataram and there are two excellent travel agencies there too, making it a wise place to arrange domestic travel.

Airasia (www.airasia.com) Three flights weekly to Kuala Lumpur.

Citramulia Travel (phone : 0370-633469; www.citramuliatravel.com), Address Jl. Pejanggik 198, Mataram open 8am - 8 pm Monday to Saturday, to 7 pm Sunday. Conscientious English-speaking staff handle domestic and international flights and offer visa services.

Garuda (phone : 08041807807; www.garuda-indonesia.com), Address Jl Pejanggik 42, Mataram. Three daily flights to Jakarta, one daily flight to Bali.

Jatatur (phone : 0370-632888; www.jatatursurabaya.com), Address: Mataram Mall Jl. Panca Usaha 11. Dependable, long running travel chain that offers fair pricing on airline tickets and english speaking service.

Silk AIr (phone : 0370-628254; www.silkair.com), Address Hotel Lombok Raya, Jl. Panca Usaha 11, Mataram. Serves Singapore direct five times weekly.

WIngs Air (phone : 0370-629333; www.lionair.co.id), Address Hotel Sahid, Jl. Sriwijaya, Mataram. Daily flight to Denpasar, Jakarta and Surabaya.


Public feriies connect Lombok's west coast with Bali and its east coast with Sumbawa. Numerous fast boat companies link Lombok and the Gili Islands with all of Bali's major ports.


Mandalika Terminal in Mataram is the departure point for major cities in SUmbawa, Bali and Java, via inter-island feriies. For long-distance services, book tickets a day or two ahead at the terminal, or from a travel agency along Jl. Pejanggik or Jl. Selaparang in Mataram.

If tou get to the terminal before 8am, there may indeed be a spare seat on a bus going in your direction, but don't count on it, especially during holidays.


The Bali based company Perama (www.peramatour.com) has tourist shuttle bus/boat service between the main tourist centres in Lombok (Senggigi, GIli Island and Kuta) and most tourist centres in Balu (Ubud, Sanur and the Kuta region). Tickets can be booked directly or at any travel agency in Lombok or Bali.

Getting Around

There is a good road across the middle of the island, between Mataram and Labuhan Lombok. Through narrw, the Mataram-Praya-Kuta and Mataram-Senggigi-Anyar routes are also decent sealed roads.

Public transport is generally restrcted to the main routes; away from these, you need to hire a car r motorbike, or charter a bemo, cidomo (horse-drawn cart) or ojek (motorcycle taxi). During the wet season, remote roads are often flooded or washed away, particularly around the foothills of Gunung RInjani.


Mandalika Terminal, is in Bertais, 6 km southeast of central Mataram; other regional terminals are in Praya, Anyar and Pancor (near selong). You May have to go via one or more of these terminals to get from one part of Lombok to another.

Fixed fares should be displayed. Public transport becomes scarce in the late afternoon and normally ceases after dark. Chartering a bemo can be convenient and reasonably cheap - about IDR400.000 per bemo per day (including petrol), depending on distance and road conditions, although some bemos are restricted to specific routes or regions.


Mataram and Senggigi are the best place to organise car or motorcycle rental. Arrengements can be made in Mataram or other places, but rates are much higher. Hotel and travel agencies offer the most competitive rates.

SUVs are best for Lombok's roads. Toyota Avanza or Xenia cost from IDR350.000 per day, and Toyota Kijang Innova cost about IDR450.000 excluding Petrol. Discounts are offered for longer periods.

Hiring a car with a driver is a very sensible and popular option as you won't be liable for any damage - expect to pay between IDR500.000 and IDR 600.000 per day, depending in the season.

Lombok Car Transport (phone : +6285338657072; www.lombokcartransport.com), Address Jl. Surabaya, Mataram open 8am - 8 pm Monday to Saturday, to 7 pm Sunday. Conscientious English-speaking staff handle.

Motorbike s can be rented for around IDR 75.000 per day. Motorcycle run for IDR75.000 per day in Mataram and Senggigi.

Lombok Motorbike Rental (phone : +6287765448040; www.lombokmotorbike.com), Address Jl. Beo Cakranegara, Mataram open 8am - 9 pm Monday to Saturday, to 7 pm Sunday.You can pick up and drop off at Mataram, Senggigi or Airport Lombok.

Indonesian law dictates that you should carry an International Driving License if you plan on operating a motor vehicle. Your rental agency won't request it, but police may ask for one at check points, and will issued a fine (to be paid immediately) if you don't have one.

Check your insurance arrengements carefully. Some agencies do not offer any coverage at all, and others offer only basic coverage. Even insured Balinese vehicles are often not covered in Lombok. It is best to proceed to Lombok and arrenge a rental in Senggigi.

Scooter or Bike Rental at Lombok Airport (Mataram, Senggigi, Lombok Airport)

(English Version) Public transportation in Lombok island is not as easy as other big cities in Indonesia. It can't be said little bit difficult, Angkot (mini bus) is not as frequent as you might think. In Lombok there are 2 alternative choices, either Cidomo (Buggy horse) and angkot (yellow-painted minibus).

Angkot services route Terminal Mandalika to Ampenan (vice versa), and not servicing all part of Mataram city. Though limited public transportation available in Lombok, there is another alternative traveler can choose to explore Lombok, by renting a motorbike. Lombok is a small island (a little bit smaller than Bali) and can be explore by motorbike. It would be a lot of fun exploring Lombok by motorbike.

Motorbike can be rented starts from 70,000 rupiah - 135,000 rupiah per day (usually 24 hours), depends on motorbike type and how long we would like to rent and how we negotiate with the owner. Information regarding rent rate was obtained during high season in Juli. I believe that can be little bit cheaper in low season. 

Below are several motorbike rent operators in Mataram, Senggigi, and Lombok Airport:

2.   Sewa Motor di Bandara Lombok Praya (LOMBOK BIKE RENTAL)

Sepengetahuan kami rental motor ini baru beroperasi di akhir tahun 2017.

Jangan khawatir, rental motor ini melayani antar dan jemput kendaraan/sepeda motor di Bandara Lombok Praya. 

Untuk tarif sewa kendaraannya dari harga Rp 80.000 s.d. Rp 95.000 perharinya.

4.    Surya Rent Car 
Lokasinya berada di Sengigi dan lebih tepatnya di jalan Raya Senggigi Km. 9, Sengigi.

Biaya sewa perhari : Rp 75.000 untuk semua jenis motor, manual ataupun matic. Motor bisa diantarkan oleh penyewa ke tempat penginapan, selama kita menginap di sekitar daerah Senggigi.

Demikianlah informasi mengenai penyewaan motor yang ada di Lombok dan akan segera saya update apabila ada tempat-tempat penyewaan lain.

Apabila Anda berencana menjelajah Pulau Lombok, maka saya menyarankan menjelajahnya menggunakan sepeda motor. Karena tidak semua wilayah dapat diakses menggunakan transportasi umum. 

Dengan menggunakan motor, maka kita bisa sesuka hati berhenti dan menikmati keindahan alam Pulau Lombok. Jangan takut tersesat, karena papan penunjuk jalan sudah sangat lengkap di Pulau Lombok. 

"So.. mari kita menjelajah Pulau Lombok dan menikmati keindahan alamnnya."
