Pool, Palms, Paradise

OK. I finally clicked the button and paid a vacation online for a 5 days 3 nights stay at the Imaj Private Villas Lombok on one of the 3000 islands of Indonesia.

Yes, it was with Wifeys' blessings of course.

For a USD40 a night's stay in a 2 bedroom villa, we have the whole place overlooking the ocean and sunset and a private pool all to ourselves. It is indeed a good bargain as far as the accommodation is concern. The airport taxes and airport transfers to and from the villa are already included.

It is from a promotional email newsletter from MIW that got me hooked on this paradise in the east. An island east of Bali, that is.

We will have to book our own 2 hours 45 minutes direct flight from Singapore's Changi International Airport to Lombok's Salapangan Airport on board Singapore Airlines' SilkAir Airbus 319.

We need to fork out the flight cost of about S$316.00 per person with a return flight. The actual flight is costing only S$188, but the cost become quite extravagant for a short distance with the inclusion of an airport tax of S$128 each.

Anyway, money aside... we are hoping to get away for our vacation this year either in March or June, during Sonny's school holidays. A week of sunshine and lazying around in paradise ought to get rid of the blues and stresses of everyday life away.

Sun, sand, sea... and lots of mountainous scenery, village to village visits, nature hikes and waterfalls... for a quiet vacation, just the three of us.


  1. Wow, what a luxurious family vacation!

  2. Sounds devine! I'm jealous!


  3. Sounds like a wonderful vacation. Have a great time.

  4. P.S. I sure would love to get away from here to somewhere warm. It's so very cold in my part of the world. So think of us freezing people on the other side of the world, when you are enjoying your time where you are. Blessings my friend.

  5. Oh my gosh Muhd! You and your family are so lucky to be able to go on this wonderful vacation! What I would give to have just one vacation in my's been forever so long that I don't even remember the last time I was able to go on a vacation!

    So, I just dream and use my imagination..meanwhile I hope it all works out and you all have a great time.

    Think of me when you jump in that pool. I love all bodies of water..and miss the ocean so much!
