KO-KO-MO RESORT GILI GEDE
There is a strong demand for the ‘old’ Bali or Gili Trawangan of yesteryear, as both islands, keeping up with tourist demand, have expanded – with an over-abundance of cosmopolitan developments to meet tourist requirements. Many of today’s travellers are now on the hunt for the ‘unspoiled,’ combined with a sense of stylish sophistication. In short, an island paradise that allows them to escape the stressed infrastructure evident in Bali, yet a destination where they can enjoy an elegant space of comfort and tranquility, complemented by a broad range of facilities and activities. Situated off the southernmost tip of Lombok, ko-ko-mo Gili Gede, a serene and chic resort, overlooks the sparkling aqua seas of the Indian Ocean. The beachfront location of the resort, set on a white sand stretch of beach in a natural cove, provides a stunningly sheltered setting with an outlook over the many beautiful small islands and atolls that dot the ocean off the shores of Gili Gede.
The region offers many benefits of an international standard and a beauty that is comparable to some of the most famous resort areas worldwide. A cruising ground for yachts and other pleasure craft, enhanced by the development of an international standard marina. A surfing mecca with two of the world’s most coveted top 20 waves a 10-minute speedboat ride away – Desert Point & Bangko Bangko. A stunning coral reef system for diving and snorkelling both on Gili Gede and the surrounding 13 islands
A climate with only four months maximum of rainfall and a balmy water temperature of 28 degrees all year round. Close proximity to Lombok Island (the mainland) – which has an existing tourism industry and many natural & attractions. For those wanting to connect with a life that seems set in the past, a life not yet tainted by a huge growth in tourism – a land unspoiled by over-development. A culture which is unique and stable… with local people full of warmth and ready invitations to share their beautiful land
