An alluring alternative to Bali

No longer in the shadow of its neighbouring Indonesian sister-island Bali, Lombok is boldly emerging as a cooler, less commercial, and more alluring alternative.

The arrival of developers Private Sanctuary Limited – with secluded luxury ‘Mandalika View’ real estate plans – is further reinforcing the idyllic island’s appeal, and rapid rise in the travel, second home, weekend retreat, and lifestyle ranks.

Adorned with beautiful, white sand beaches and crystal clear water at the coast; volcanic Mt Rinjani’s natural lake, forest and waterfall landscapes upon moving inland; and enchanting culture and welcoming hospitality at its very heart, Lombok offers a destination experience that spectacularly straddles reverie and reality.

Mandalika View by Private Sanctuary (pictured) is an exclusive real estate development located in Kuta on Lombok’s south coast – 20-minutes’ drive from the airport, and occupying a secluded and elevated hillside position, overlooking Kuta Bay on one side and Grupuk Bay on the other.

Comprising 17 plots ranging in size from 1184 sqm to 2432 sqm, owners can build their dream two- to five-bedroom villa and benefit from Private Sanctuary’s ‘turn-key solution’ service and expertise: design, project management, construction and operation.

Backed by the government, the project represents a shared commitment to cultivate positive and intelligent tourism, and ensure that Lombok doesn’t fall into the over-development trap of neighbouring islands.

Founded by Tobi Döringer and Daniel Pätzold, Private Sanctuary Limited is a Hong- Kong based real estate agent specialising in development, operation and management of boutique resorts and luxury villa properties – with more than 10 years of experience and a portfolio of exemplary properties including an exclusive island resort in Cambodia.

Plot prices start at Mandalika View from US$96,000 and rise to US$199,350 with the cost of villas costs in addition. Villas are priced from US$165,000 for a two-bedroom, 150sqm unit upwards.
