Lombok Vacation Rental: Staying at the Anandita Villa with Elite Havens

Hot off the press from Lombok, Indonesia

For a tranquil Indonesian escape, meet the highly praised Anandita Villa. This Lombok vacation rental is beach-blessed and super spacious.

Have you ever dreamt of running with complete abandon through a vast grassy expanse of lawn? In particular, one that is dotted with coconut palms and laced with frangipani and bougainvillea? If so, it could be that the Elite Havens renowned Anandita Villa has infiltrated your dreams! This grassy Lombok coconut grove is adjoined to the white sanded Sira Beach, making it the most heavenly backdrop for a luxe spa retreat.

Rest, relax and stay awhile.

Scattered about the coconut grove are 4 stand-alone luxury guest villas. By all means, hats off to the designers of these villas and their en-suite bathrooms! Each is spacious and decorated with natural materials. The use of brightly colored accents are contrasted by soft white linens. Gorgeous natural wood flooring, ceiling and trimmings blend gracefully with nature’s design themes. Draw back the curtains and let the large sliding glass doors reveal their views. Furthermore, the bathrooms are as lavish as ever. Each one looks as though it is a spa salon, exuding the tranquility of the serene tropical outdoor surroundings that they’re exposed to. Moreover, all guest suites have been appointed with everything possible to make for a well-pampered stay.

Your home away from home Lombok vacation rental

In the center of the guest villas is a “living pavilion.” This is a common area which includes a kitchen, large dining room, seriously large living room and a bar. The living area is made up of several plush couches, a TV, pool table, games and books. Wide, folding glass doors lead to the pool deck with sun loungers and a gigantic pool. Here, you can listen to the sound of the birds and the waves rolling onto the beach.

Whether you’re in one of the guest villas or the common areas, you’ll find all of the structures to be very elegant, spacious and open with high ceilings. You can enjoy the company of other guests in the common areas, but also bask in the privacy that each guest suite offers. 

Meals are served whenever, wherever

The food scene at this Lombok vacation rental must also be praised. Included in the cost of your stay is breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea, beverages and snacks. A wide selection of both Western and Asian dishes are offered. Along with mouthwatering meals, they serve a variety of home-baked bread and pastries, fresh juices, cocktails, tea and coffee. Special dietary needs can be accommodated.

Another winning feature is that the staff will arrange special dinners at various locations around the property. A beautiful sunset beach barbeque was a highlight of my stay. They must have spent hours preparing the elaborate setup. Furthermore, a special vegetarian dish was made for me with vegetable curry cooked inside of banana leaves and a side of grilled tempeh and tofu. On another occasion, they served up a delicious version of my favorite Indonesian meal, Gado Gado. Our private chef was top notch. In fact, all of his culinary creations were perfect.

Charming and experienced staff

This 4 bedroom Lombok vacation rental can be booked through Elite Havens. The amazing staff at both Elite Havens and the Anandita Villa make this property stand out from other Indonesian vacation rentals. I found them to be very professional and aimed to please. The Villa Manager was warm and accommodating. He assists guests with everything from setting up transportation to getting you set for the activities of your choosing. The staff will even prepare a picnic lunch for you to take on your outings, should you request one.
