Located in the south west of Lombok Gili Asahan is one of the least populated of the secret Gilis in the archipelago. This slowly developing, quiet and unique region is still as isolated and wild as it was 15 years ago when the founder of the lodge first acquired the land. With breathtaking displays of nature both on land and underwater this island paradise is the perfect holiday destination for anyone seeking a tranquil place to step away from the stresses of daily life.
Still wild and rooted in its culture Gili Asahan is a beautiful small pearl in the sea. You can walk around the island in about 2 hours (circumference 5 km)and find everything from hills to beaches, valleys and fields. Populated mostly by fishermen and farmers the locals are humble and friendly folk and will welcome you with a smile. The small village is located not far from the lodge; there you will find the typical daily Indonesian life unfolding before you. Surrounded by pristine seas Gili Asahan is truly a hidden treasure.
