The modern beachfront hotel villas achieve the maximum aesthetic impact with the architecture and interior design concepts overseen by three of Indonesia’s most renowned talents. Against a backdrop of the rolling waves of the ocean, the contemporary architecture makes the most of the sea views while drawing the outdoors in with a sand-filled ground floor that comes together to create the ultimate beach house retreat. Strikingly stylish and minimalistic, the modern interiors are deftly articulated with a fine palette of local materials and soothing hues complemented by open-air living areas, bespoke furniture and a warm and welcoming ambience.
With two bedrooms — both with private ensuite bathrooms — and a central open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, each beach house is designed for absolute enjoyment and a seamless indoor-outdoor flow.
The hotel’s oceanfront restaurant, Anakampung, is a must-visit. Savour the delightful tastes of farm-to-table cuisine with ingredients sourced from local farms and fishermen as you bask in the breathtaking views of breaking waves.

The architectural villas at Innit Lombok
Sublimely presented, peaceful and private, the seven architecturally designed villas are each a pristine indoor-outdoor sanctuary of blissful harmony.
Each villa certainly has a zen-like quality to it — serene, relaxing and perched on a picture-perfect 300-metre stretch of beach.
With an impressive amount of space, each oceanfront villa delivers 170m2 of discreet luxury and pristine comfort. Each of the 2-bedroom private villas offers full views of Ekas Bay, Innit Beach, and even Mount Rinjani in the distance on clear days, with direct beach access. Evoking pure and pristine surroundings.
Throughout the two bedrooms, the integrated living, dining and kitchen area, the decor is contemporary with clean, modern lines accented by an understated palette and natural materiality. The villas combine luxury and elegance neatly encapsulated in a glorious architectural symphony of stone, wood, concrete and glass, all effortlessly blended and infused with sand and infinite views.
With the overarching aim to build a contemporary resort while leaving the surrounding landscape as untouched as possible, the architects developed a concept that redefines outdoor living by truly merging inside and out. Blurring the boundaries of indoor and outdoor, the lack of walls on the entire ground floor of each villa lends the whole area a fluid form and also allows guests to get immersed in the natural beauty. The villa’s stylish lounging-dining area gives off a barefoot luxury vibe: its white-sand flooring instantly suggests endless tropical relaxation.
Organically designed bespoke furniture was introduced to give each private villa a sense of serenity and softness.
Feel the sand between your toes and enjoy the fresh sea breeze in the semi-open dining room, where a long kitchen-dining table is a perfect space to gather and share a meal with family and friends.
Creating a powerful design statement, the oversized kitchen counters are hand-made and finished in polished terrazzo. While the kitchen offers everything necessary for culinary enthusiasts, the hotel provides a private chef service.
Upstairs are two naturally lit bedrooms, equipped with elegant teak platform beds with matching headboards and benches, custom-made double wardrobes and ensuite bathrooms, where the floors, walls, and counters are also made of hand-crafted polished terrazzo. Vertical lines of shutters allow soft, ambient light and cooling breezes to pass through the rooms. From the main suite, enjoy listening to the soothing sound of the gentle waves and gazing at the mesmerising ocean views from your bed.
Food & drinks
Indulge in a dining experience where the presentation extends beyond your plate. Relish the flavours of fresh, locally sourced ingredients while enjoying uninterrupted vistas of crashing waves at the oceanfront restaurant Anakampung. It is home to an Indonesian Chef with international Michelin-starred expertise, delivering the best of both worlds with a mouth-watering Indonesian menu that showcases farm-to-table cuisine and freshly caught local seafood.
Fresh seafood is caught by local fishermen, and lobsters are sustainably grown in floating farms in Ekas Bay. Furthermore, as the restaurant prioritises zero-kilometre ingredients, a small vegetable garden is nearby that supplies the kitchen with fresh produce. Additional ingredients are sourced as locally as possible, and the restaurant supports local farmers, food producers and fishermen.
A casual outdoor barbeque pit for beach grilling during sunset perfectly sets the stage for locally prepared dishes, where freshly caught seafood, delicately wrapped in banana leaves or skewered on bamboo sticks, is gently grilled over an open fire fuelled by aromatic coconut husks. Grilled to perfection and succulently delicious, make sure to sample the restaurant’s signature dish: the traditionally prepared lobster on coconut shells. The extensive wine list features a variety of reds, whites, and sparkling wines with options to suit every palate.
Just like ‘kampung’ (village) communal dining, guests can join in at the restaurant’s 6-metre dining table for shared conviviality and good times. The restaurant features paintings by Indonesian artists on its walls, creating a vibrant and artistic atmosphere.
