(16/11/22)  Accor has expanded the Pullman brand to the southern coast of Lombok island in Indonesia.

The 257-room resort, nestled within a secluded bay and surrounded by verdant hills, is a 20-minute drive from Lombok International Airport and close to the Pertamina Mandalika International Street Circuit.

Each room at the resort features a private balcony with the choice of either a garden or stunning Indian Ocean views. Handcrafted bath amenities using locally sourced ingredients for suites and villas are available to upgrade the resort stay experience.

“The Pullman Lombok Merujani Mandalika Beach Resort is a fantastic addition to our network in Indonesia. The resort perfectly blends our stylish Pullman concepts with the local artistry of Indonesian designers, ensuring a vibrant experience across every touch point of the resort,” said Garth Simmons, Chief Executive Officer of Accor Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea. “Pullman Lombok Merujani Mandalika Beach Resort boasts a modern and connective experience with extensive fitness and wellbeing facilities, enabling guests to maintain peak performance and personal wellbeing whilst on the road.”

Facilities at the resort include four F&B outlets – including a swim-up bar by the resort’s free-form swimming pool; a fitness centre; spa with four treatment rooms; and a choice of meeting and event spaces.

“We are very excited to introduce the first Pullman resort in Lombok at this prime location on the southern coast. We strive to provide travelers with inspiring, active and fun programs that focus on their wellbeing. Art also plays a significant part of the resort’s programming, allowing for a seamless playground to unlock guests’ imagination. We are thrilled to invite travelers to explore and up their game at our new vibrant playground in Lombok,” said Vincent Wybier, General Manager of Pullman Lombok Merujani Mandalika Beach Resort.

While in Lombok, guests can explore Tanjung Aan Beach, Selong Belanak Beach and Kuta Beach, with plenty of surfing and snorkeling opportunities available.

Trekking trails at Merese Hill and Mount Tunak Nature Park offer views of rolling, forested hills and sunsets over the Indian Ocean.

Visitors can also visit Ende and Sade villages to immerse in the traditional culture of Lombok’s Sasak people.

“Pullman Lombok Merujani Mandalika Beach Resort is the first five-star resort built in Mandalika, one of Indonesia’s Super Priority Tourism Destinations owing to its natural beauty and cultural richness,” said Ari Respati, President Director of PT Pengembangan Pariwisata Indonesia (Persero) and the Indonesia Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC). “Mandalika will host world-class motorsport events such as the MotoGP and the World Superbike (WSBK) at our very own Mandalika International Circuit. We believe that travelers will continue to travel to the Mandalika area with MotoGP, WSBK, the Circuit and our new Pullman Resort serving as key attractions, thus creating a multiplier effect for the community.”
