Located on Gili Meno Island off the coast of Lombok, BASK Resort Gili Meno will feature 81 individual villas totalling 98 rooms in studio, loft, two-bedroom and three-bedroom suite layouts.
Local thatched roof, bamboo-framed fishing villas serve as inspiration for the resort’s architectural design while flat garden roofs, textured concrete and sleek wooden finishes combine to form an aesthetic that is both contemporary and authentic.
Situated on 300 meters of private, white-sand beach on Gili Meno’s west-facing shore, the BASK Resort Gili Meno blueprint also features a wide range of facilities.
These include a beach club offering a panoramic beachfront and lakeside views from its infinity pool deck while the indoor cocktail lounge and beach bar will serve locally sourced organic food and beverages including a raw beer designed to tempt even the most health-conscious drinker.
Adding even more Australian flavour to the overall BASK Resort Gili Meno concept, the restaurant’s menu of Indonesian-influenced Asian and Western cuisine will be designed by Chef Dan Moran of Sydney’s iconic Rockpool Bar and Grill while Australian mixologist Mark Ward of Hugo’s and the creator of Regal Rogue Vermouth will concoct his signature cocktails blended with unique local ingredients.
Indonesia has long been positioned as the ‘spa and wellness capital of Asia’ and, in direct keeping with that stance, BASK Resort Gili Meno’s facilities will also offer a state of the art spa and wellness centre combining the very best of treatments and services including massage and local therapies.
For those interested in more active pursuits, BASK Resort Gili Meno can provide its guests with access to a variety of activities ranging from diving, golf, surfing and snorkelling to kayaking, paddle boarding and hiking to name but a few.
Key to the environmental angle and adhering strongly to BASK Resort Gili Meno’s dedication to sustainable living, the new resort will feature a recycling program, no-plastic policy, a water treatment plant and composting system.
BASK Resort Gili Meno also aims to minimize its ecological footprint through the establishment of a carbon neutral program, helping to preserve the beauty that Gili Meno provides.
The Gili Islands are an archipelago of three small islands — Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air – lying off the northwest coast of Lombok.
Easily accessible by international airports on Bali and Lombok, fast-boat ferries and private speed boat charters, the islands have seen a steady increase in tourists seeking adventure and looking for an idyllic alternative to neighbouring, over-developed, and very heavily-trafficked Bali. Local authorities and land owners have endeavoured to preserve the region’s natural splendour through conservation efforts including the Gili Eco Trust as well as keeping the island free from motorised vehicles.
The self-proclaimed ‘turtle capital of the world’, the Gili Islands are renowned for their rich marine life with the region’s diving heralded as a must-do experience.
