How to arrive at Owa Lodge with style

Owa lodge is located in Areguling, a local village in a protected and preserved valley and yet 10min West from Kuta. Areguling beach and its well known surf spot are a 4mn walk from the Lodge. Our rooms and on site restaurant are nested in a tropical garden and surrounded by rice field and nature.

Owa can be tricky to find and the access is bumpy (a priviledge to pay to access a quiet heaven and an authentic experience).

  • By plane
    If you are flying, it’s easy. This is the best option as Kuta, Lombok is very close. Quite often guests would like to experience some of Bali and catch the fast boat or slow boat from Padang Bai. However the trip itself, after transport is almost a full day of traveling, it will cost you approximately the same. You will have a much more adventurous experience if you arrive in Kuta first, base here, and venture out on day or overnight trips. AIRLINES TO USE From the Lombok international Airport to Owa take about 30mn. CITILINK, is the domestic travel section of 'Garuda Airlines' and are the best. They receive priority so are vary rarely delayed. You also receive 10kg luggage / 7kg cabin luggage traveling from Bali and 20kg from other destinations. Our first choice. WINGAIR / LION AIR - are the same, and 7kg cabin baggage is include but no luggages. SUPER AIR JET - new to the domestic scene in Indonesia, if use them multiple times and it’s been excellent with 20kg baggage included. SCOOT - If you are arriving from Singapore or Kuala Lumpur, Scoot has also opened up more routes which is a quality budget airline. ORGANIZE A TRANSFER From the airport to Owa, the STANDARD RATE is IDR 200.000. Please be aware the locals at the airport may try a higher price.
