The best of Lombok…
The layout of our four separate bedroom pavilions has been conceived to maximise proximity to nature, and facilitate friends or family interaction in the social spaces. Although only four bedrooms larger groups can be accommodated. The villa sleeps 8 adults (4 king-bedded suites) plus 6 children on daybeds and 2 extra beds are available for additional guests (extra fee applies). This Villa is also available at a reduced three bedroom rate.
Designed by Bali-based Australian architect John Lincoln – renowned for his work on the Four Seasons resort Hotel Jimbaran, the Westin Hotel Nusa Dua, as well as a number of five star hotels and private villas in and around Bali – The Anandita villa was built with a vision to create an oasis of peace and natural harmony and provides you with the opportunity to reunite body and soul with the environment as well as socialise with friends or family.
The large open living areas, tall vaulted ceilings and the overflowing lotus pond by the dining pavilion provide a great sense of space and freedom. From the balé, dining room and every pavilion, one can hear the sound of birdsong, the waves slowly rolling onto the beach and the wind gently caressing the palm leaves. Built with precious woods from Kalimantan, white Palimanan stone from Bali and locally crafted terrazzo, The Anandita uses noble natural materials for a modern, yet highly classic luxurious architecture.
On waking each morning, and opening the curtains of your private bedroom pavilion, the pool and beach are simultaneously revealed over the lush green lawn. Our manicured grounds, conceived by landscape designer Malcolm Williams, boast frangipani, pink and orange bougainvillea, as well as flamboyant trees whose striking red flowers bloom once a year.
The lightly salted free-form pool, built with large natural indigo and earthy-toned stones imported from India, blends with its surroundings and confers a river-like feeling. Antique primitive art sculptures from Sumba and wooden totems from Irian Jaya dot the gardens with a sense of mystery.
Staying at The Anandita offers a level of privacy that is difficult to find anywhere else. The one and a half hectares of ocean-facing land, and the white-sand beach that fringes it, are all yours.

Built on the edge of the Sira peninsula, The Anandita benefits from the wonders of one of the island’s most beautiful ecosystems. Just 200 metres from the beach via sea kayaks, you can swim amongst amazing multicoloured fauna and flora.
On top of the superb ecosystem, we also offer many opportunities to discover other natural settings around the island, to learn about the traditions and culture of the people of Lombok, and to plan adventure, sports or recreational activities.
The expansive, fan-cooled living room at The Anandita has a high roof and presents three distinct, yet integrated areas. The central section is distinguished with a Palimanan frieze featuring carvings of birds, frogs, dragonflies, leaves and flowers, and flanking a stone floor that extends directly onto the pool deck through wide, folding glass doors. This area is furnished with two comfortable sofas strewn with playfully coloured scatter cushions, a chair and a rustic coffee table. The remainder of the room is slightly elevated with a polished wood floor that extends around the central sitting area in a U-shape. On one side is a more formal sitting area with segmented upholstered sofas, chairs and a flat screen TV–DVD player with Apple TV box allowing guests to access movies on Apple TV or their own accounts on Netflix and YouTube. The third area presents a billiard table, desk, bookshelves and guest washroom.
The Anandita’s splendid dining pavilion is open on four sides under a soaring roof. Cooled by ceiling fans, the dining area is screened from the guest kitchen by attractive fretwork timber panels; one of the walls is graced with a collage featuring Thai elephants, while a Buddha’s-head statue guards the opposite side. Here, guests will be serenaded by the sounds of water-in-motion, charmed by the sight of dragonflies hovering around the fishpond, and captivated by the gorgeous views. A grand dining table for 12 takes centre stage in the pavilion with views through rows of coconut palms in the garden and onwards to the beach and ocean.
The front section of Anandita’s modern kitchen is well equipped for guest use, with a fridge, coffee machine and plenty of quality tableware and glassware. It also features a built-in breakfast bar furnished with ten chairs. The main staff kitchen is hidden behind a screen wall and is fully equipped with everything that the cook needs to prepare delicious meals.
The Anandita boasts a multi-tiered pool deck crafted in both Palimanan stone and timber boards. Here, three tall coconut trees and two frangipani trees offer dappled shade. The main level is furnished with two wooden tables and chairs, each offering a place for casual dining or socialising. An elevated timber deck is furnished with two sunbeds and an umbrella for daytime lounging, plus a table and chairs for a romantic candlelit dinner. Meanwhile, four wide stone steps lead down to another timber deck at pool level, offering more sunbeds and umbrellas. The free-form swimming pool is evocative of a jungle glade with a whirlpool hidden within a circular section. Like a small lagoon, the water wends its way through the garden, bordered by flowering shrubs and trees, river boulders and bushy palms.
The huge manicured lawn stretches all the way down to the beach, a volleyball court is positioned between the palm trees, and a line of sunbeds and umbrellas rest beside the white-sand beach. Elevated just above the beach is a large balé (relaxation pavilion), complete with a telephone for summoning refreshments. This is a great spot for a massage and perfect for contemplating Lombok’s mysterious Mount Rinjani and watching the sunset over Bali’s Mount Agung. There is also a table here for casual lunches or romantic dinners. The beach is lapped by clear waters, shallow and safe for swimming.
With its superb facilities, plentiful accommodation and fantastic location, The Anandita is the perfect Lombok destination for large groups, family holidays, and lovers of relaxed beach-side living, magnificent tropical sunsets, and all the finer things in life. Guests can easily visit the famed Gili – Islands by boat and explore the stunning natural beauty of Lombok island with its unique culture and traditional values.
