"Gran Meliá Lombok is a game-changer for the island's lesser-explored southern coastline — finally a luxury option for those unwilling to sacrifice on comfort. Exceptional yet not exclusive, it is an amalgamation of residential and resort, with privately owned villas making it accessible to a wider market." – Jack Brown, Co-Founder, Invest Islands

The focal point of South Lombok is undoubtedly Mandalika, a special economic zone that covers 1,175-hectares of coastal land and will eventually be home to more than 16,000 hotel rooms, a waterpark, 27-hole golf course, 1,500 villas, and an international-standard motor-racing circuit. The estimated cost of the venture is believed to exceed US$3 billion. 

Yet what sets Mandalika apart is that it is a development trying to avoid the trappings of previous luxury developments, such as those in neighbouring Bali. With up to 51% designated ‘green space,’ from the outset and various clean energy initiatives in place, the intention of developers is to create something that works in tandem with nature, by becoming a template for sustainable development.

The Gran Melia Lombok is located a 30-minute drive west of Mandalika, on a stepped hillside overlooking the Indian Ocean. Also focusing on sustainability, the two projects complement each other perfectly as the southern coastline of the island looks to establish itself as Asia’s prime eco-tourism destination.

the masterplan

Gran Meliá Lombok will be situated at the beautiful Torok Bay in the south of the island, surrounded by green hills and a beach with crystal-clear waters. The perfect destination to disconnect and enjoy a relaxed approach to life.

The hotel will boast 20++ luxury beachside villas and another 100++ villas on the mountainside, all with private infinity pools and stunning ocean views. Careful attention will be paid to the architectural design, utilising natural elements that represent the essence of the destination. The hotel will blend seamlessly with its natural environment, allowing guests to fully immerse themselves in paradise. An abundance of large windows will allow in plentiful natural light and help the property merge with its surroundings, while the elegant furniture and warm tones convey a sense of pure luxury.


Gran Meliá Lombok

the concept

Set for completion in late 2025, the Gran Meliá Lombok is a high-end luxury destination featuring sustainable design and locally sourced materials. Comprising of 22 duplex bamboo villas on the beachfront and more than 100 one-, two- and three-bedroom villas located on a stepped hillside with panoramic views of the Indian Ocean and private swimming pools, it promises to firmly put the Indonesian island on the map when it comes to luxury living.

Sustainability is one of the pillars of Invest Islands and each of the 100+ units at Gran Meliá Lombok will feature energy-saving features such as rainwater catchment tanks, greywater reuse systems, and solar roof panels. Our two-storey 700sqm Waves Beach Club and Restaurant will be constructed from locally sourced bamboo and recognise indigenous architecture.

Designed to the highest standards, the Gran Meliá Lombok maximises the use of local materials and clean energy, while combining the island’s traditions with photogenic features able to create global exposure in a modern world.

With more than 100++ villas spread across a stepped hillside, every property has ocean views, while some even have offer sunrise and sunset vistas. With various designs and plots available, we have options for most budgets.

the beachside

The first major south-facing beachfront resort in Lombok, our project at Gran Meliá Lombok sits in front of an alluring aquamarine ocean and paradise-like white sandy bay. 


The entire hotel has been designed as an authentic sanctuary for wellbeing. From the beachside YHI Spa offering relaxing rituals and treatments to the well-equipped fitness centre, the Gran Meliá Lombok provides guests with everything they need to maintain their wellness routine. The hotel will also offer a kids club to keep children entertained and an extensive programme of activities designed for the whole family.

The hotel will feature world-class dining options that combine the best local ingredients and techniques to offer guests authentic Indonesian dining experiences. The spacious lounge with scenic panoramic ocean views will provide the perfect setting for couples planning an exotic destination wedding.

Designed to evoke exclusivity and indulgence, each structure comes with various opulent features, ranging from high-end fixtures and hardware to state-of-the-art safety glass, dark-tinted windows to concealed and confidential safety deposit boxes.

The resort’s perimeter fence is built into the ground and concealed by foliage to ensure exclusivity and safety remain paramount yet views remain unrestricted.

Our custom designs offer vast open spaces and panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, ensuring all Invest Islands clients have coveted property in a prime location.

The garden irrigation and misting systems are automatic, meaning potted plants, grass, and any horticultural projects will be cared for even if the owner steps out.

Fitted with LED lights, the infinity pool functions 24/7 while the secluded wooden decking area is perfect for sunbathing in privacy.

A rainwater catchment tank and greywater reuse system are both incorporated into the eco-friendly design of all Invest Islands properties, providing sustainable irrigation and cost savings during dry season

Cost savings are increased further courtesy of Invest Islands’ fully integrated solar water heaters and electric back-up system, ensuring a constant supply of hot water.

Each villa is equipped with a concealed safety deposit box, the location of which is provided only at handover.

All exterior-facing windows include state-of-the-art safety devices to make them less likely to break or pose a threat if broken.
