A visit to Lembongan, Ceningan and Penida has often been described as travelling back into the past – to a time when Bali was truly the Island of the Gods The pace of life is slow and easy, we call it “jam Lembongan” which means Lembongan time. You will know it when you stop looking at your watch and you will really achieve it when you forget what day it is. Many people who come for the first time for a day or two always leave regretting they did not stay longer. The stress of modern life starts to disappear, and you may well begin to rediscover a little of your former self.
However, if you desire more action, surfing, diving, yoga, touring, eating and drinking options are all available at your fingertips. For the shopper’s boutiques and shops are popping up all along the main streets of the island with quality products on offer. You can browse at your leisure without the hassle of Bali.
Or you can just laze around the pool with a cold drink or a good read in hand.
Our beautiful island is yours to enjoy – all you must do is arrive.
