Invest Islands, Asia’s leading real estate investment company is on track to launch the Gran Meliá Lombok, a beachfront and hillside resort in South Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara. The developer hopes that the presence of Gran Meliá Lombok will improve the island’s tourism and hospitality sectors, whilst boosting the local economy.
The resort, located in Torok Bay, was conceived by the Invest Islands project team together with Bali-based, Inspiral Architecture & Design Studios, and managed by Meliá Hotels International. The investment value for this project is more than US$ 80 million.
Currently, Gran Meliá Lombok Spa & Resort is under construction, scheduled to open in 2024.
Co-Founder of Invest Islands, Kevin Deisser said that later, guests can choose accommodation according to their wishes, starting from one, two, and three bedrooms, all of which are equipped with state-of-the-art technology, luxurious interiors, private pools, panoramic windows, and sea views.
“Very unique concepts such as the Kayma Morocco Tented Suite, Aurora Minimalist Villa inspired by eco-luxury villas, and La Residenza Bauhaus like a place to live. Nestled among waving palm trees, this resort will also accommodate many world-class facilities, including a club house and restaurant,” he explained during a press conference in Jakarta (23/3/2022).
Kevin also added, “this five-star resort and villa will be combined with Spanish styles, without leaving the rich cultural heritage of Lombok and Indonesia.
In addition, the resort is claimed to carry environmentally friendly aspects throughout the property, from the use of locally sourced organic materials to energy-efficient equipment, rainwater storage, and solar panels.
“Meliá Hotels International’s commitment to environmentally responsible tourism has led to the group being recognized and awarded the Most Sustainable Hospitality Company in Spain and Europe, according to the last S&P Global Sustainability Yearbook 2022 (Silver Class distinction), and is ranked seventh on the Wall Street Journal’s list of the World’s 100 Sustainable Companies (and leading travel companies),” said Kevin.
This combination of sleek designs and sustainable developments will create a unique investment opportunity for second home owners with a vision to look beyond Bali.
Regarding distance, Gran Meliá Lombok, which overlooks the Indian Ocean, is said to be only 25 km from Lombok International Airport, close to Mandalika, the economic zone where the Indonesian MotoGP is held.
“At Invest Islands, our vision is to showcase the stunning beauty of the Indonesian archipelago and deliver extraordinary developments that raise the profile of their destinations. We want to open up unexplored islands and drive benefits for every stakeholder, from indigenous people to international investors. “Gran Meliá Lombok is a great example of this strategy. We are excited to be working with all of our partners to bring this prestigious project to life and to increase investment in Lombok’s stunning south coast,” explained Kevin Deisser.
Meanwhile, Co-Founder of Invest Islands Jack Brown said that his party is very pleased to introduce Gran Meliá Lombok to the world. “Since Invest Islands was founded in 2015, we have teamed up with some of Asia’s leading architects to develop extraordinary projects, from luxury villas and tented suites, to contemporary residences and five-star resorts. By blending beautiful natural landscapes with contemporary designs and corporate social responsibility, we are raising the bar for sustainable real estate and hospitality in Indonesia,” added Jack Brown.
On that occasion, Gonzalo Maceda, Vice President of Development –Asia Pacific, Meliá Hotels International said that this project will complement the Gran Meliá Jakarta, their flagship hotel in the Indonesian capital. “We are delighted to be working with Invest Islands on this prestigious property and look forward to welcoming our first guests in 2024,” said Gonzalo Maceda.
