February 2018 Update

February saw the completion and handover of 2 stunning new villas within Selong Selo Residences, including our largest villa to-date, 11B.  These add to our inventory of luxury residences available for rent within the resort.

Our operations team has expanded with new management staff coming on board this month to support our rapid growth as new villas are constantly coming on line.

This month South Lombok recieved some international attention, with senior government officials hosting a delegate of US investors over a 3 day conference, during which time they visited Selong Selo Residences.  This further highlights the fact that the area is attracting interest from the international investment community, and reinforcing the government's commitment to promote and support regional tourism.

January was very wet with extreme weather as the wet season is in full force, which began to ease off throughout February. Our water management plan for the estates infrastructure has proved a success during the current wet season, with drainage measures controlling water movement and potential erosion concerns. 

There have been zero site accidents so far this year, due to the re-enforcement of safety first policies and continued first-aid training and supervision of construction teams.

In spite of the wet-season, this month we completed and handed over 2 more beautiful villas to their lucky owners. One of our largest Villas 11B, boasts seven beautifully appointed bedrooms, 3 swimming pool and its own private yoga shala. Our other completed addition is Villa 3D; this amazingly positioned villa has 4 bedrooms, a 20 metre pool, and media room, split over 3 levels (photo's of 3D to come next month).
Selong Selo Residences' largest 7 bedroom bespoke villa, 'Villa Maleo' (11B) completed construction this month and is now ready to begin receiving guests.  

This impressive villa has a generous open-plan living area with modern kitchen with breakfast bar, large family dining area, and amazing views from every room.  Ideal for large families or groups of friends, the villa is divided into 3 sections - with the main residence housing 5 of the 7 bedrooms.  There is a large kids bunk room that sleeps 4, as well as 4 ensuited king rooms within the main villa. 

Two separate self-contained 1 bedroom units sit above the main house, each with it’s own ensuite and private plunge pool.  The large infinity pool at the main house has a cocktail seating area and deck space with sun loungers. The property also has its own private yoga shala.

Delegate of U.S. Investors and Government officials visit South Lombok...
From the 11th -17th the Indonesian Consul of Economic Affairs in New York - Adi Winanto, and Hartadinata Harianto - Co-CEO of SR Group, led a delegation of US investors to Indonesia to meet with senior government officials in Lombok, Jogjakarta, Solo and Jakarta. This included meetings with the Tourism, Infrastructure, Economic Affairs and Transport division and ministers.

The purpose of the trip was to highlight the increasing ease of doing business in Indonesia, showcase the impressive growth outlook of the country and develop a greater understanding of the current investment opportunities and discuss strategic projects such as property, hospitals, public facilities, and cooperation with stakeholders. The 3 days touring predominantly in South Lombok, including Selong Selo Residences and Mandalika, and the various meetings in Lombok reinforced the Government's focus to develop and increase the tourist arrivals for the island.

The visit also highlights the fact that the Mandalika project and South Lombok in general is garnering more attention from investors on an international level.

Indonesia is determined to compete with neighbouring South East Asian island countries such as Thailand and Vietnam and also spread the demand from Bali. It was very encouraging to hear!

Senior government officials met with a group of US investors and entrepreneurs exploring opportunities in South Lombok during a 3 day forum in February.
