To anonymous - Getting from Kuta to Ekas - the following information is what we provide guests coming to stay at Heaven on the Planet a resort in South East Lombok, Ekas Bay.

Transport can be chartered from Kuta to the village of Awang. It will take about half an hour to three quarters of an hour to get from Kuta to Awang. You will know what the going rate would be for travel of that distance – probably around 50,000 Rp (perhaps more)?

Then, when you arrive in Awang charter a boat from there to go across the Bay to Heaven on the Planet. We have a friend in the village of Awang “Using” a friendly hunchbacked guy who speaks very good English (and perhaps a little bit of French). Using will be able to organise a boat for you. We have an aquarium in Awang and there are many people in the village who know us. Using or Bhakti are people who have worked for us in the past on the aquarium project so either they can help you or any of the fishermen in the village will be happy to charter their boat to you. We usually pay them around 50,000 – 60,000 Rp for the trip across the Bay. The boat driver may try to tell you he cannot land at Heaven on the Planet. This is merely a ploy used to try and keep you in Kuta so they have the opportunity for repeat business. It is very easy to land at our property, there is a choice of two beaches to land at – the small beach directly under our property is the easier one to land at on high tide.

Alternatively, you may choose to telephone our manager/driver who can come and get you in our four wheel drive vehicle. Naim lives in Mataram and sometimes collects people from Kuta and drives around to Heaven on the Planet. His telephone number is +62(0) 8123705393. This option is a lot simpler but will cost you a little more @ 200,000 Rp (for one person) the price list for all transport is advertised on our website www.heavenontheplanet.co.nz.

Advise!!! - Hey, I plan to go to Bali from mid January to the end of March can anyone recommend somewhere to stay. Also from what I have been told Lombok is the best place to go at this time of year, is that right??

By anonymous , 06-07-2004

worth going on wet season - go to bali and surf the east side. swells are consisten enough for a trip. i surfed bali from late november till mid jan and only skiped two days becaus of the non stop rain. got nusa dua once at 8-12' scary shit, but mostly 4-6.
