Selong Selo Resort & Residences - two bedroom villa
The villa you chose is no longer available for rental from us but we have a portfolio of Elite Havens in various locations around South East Asia for you to choose from. Alternatively feel free to send us an enquiry and it'll be our pleasure to help you find the perfect villa for your next holiday.
Built into the hills, Selong Selos’s two-bedroom villas offer a contemporary stay in luxurious settings, surrounded by nature’s embrace. The villas are all designed to maximise on the views of the bay below and the jungle around, a carpet of green paddy fields merging into the aqua blue ocean, separated only by a thin white line of sandy beach and surf.
Each villa boasts of a private infinity pool and a pool deck with loungers, perfect for your morning cuppa as you wake up to the sound of water, the views of the ocean and a sense of tranquility.
The two bedrooms are well spaced out, with the living and dining area between them. If you’re travelling with children or elderly parents, you will appreciate the privacy that the design allows. The villa has a well-equipped kitchen, should you wish to prepare a meal for the family.
Though the villas are self-catering, you also have the option of ordering room service or dining at the estate’s restaurant, Aura Lounge and Bar. Built as the focal point of the property, the restaurant is housed within an open-pavilion and has alfresco seating.
Daily housekeeping keeps the villas in pristine condition and the refrigerator is stocked with water and milk. Other mini-bar items are available on chargeable basis.
The contemporary design of the villa integrates with local sensibilities; adorned with art and furniture from the region. The overall effect is that of quiet sophistication.
With a bird’s eye view of the bay and the valley below, Selong Selo is merely 15 minutes away by shuttle from Selong Belanak Beach. The gentle waves are perfect for beginner surfers and a multitude of casual dining options make the white sandy beach a great place to head to for sunset.
Selong Selo is the last name in luxury, secluded and tranquil, seemingly shielded off from the world and the inevitable stresses of city life.

Rates and availability
Selong Selo is located high up on the hills, with awe-inspiring views of the bay below. Its position gives you a bird’s eye view of the valley and the turquoise sea which changes colour as the day goes by. Down mountain roads, Selong Belanak Beach is a short 15 minute drive away and shuttle services make it highly accessible. The beach is lovely for a stroll, having been voted one of the best beaches in Asia, and is well known across the island as the best surfing spot for beginners. Either side of the bay are two reef breaks, Mawi and Serangan, ideal for intermediate and advance surfing. The international airport is at a distance of 21km. The estate’s secluded location offers tranquility and peace, with only village huts and local rural life outside its well-manned security gates.More information for Things to do
The team at Selong Selo has a wealth of knowledge about the area and its surrounds, where they can recommend activities to keep you entertained. A car and driver can be hired for the day (at an additional charge) or for shorter periods. Here are some exciting things to do:
- Lombok is all about surfing and Selong Belanak Beach is the best on the island especially for the novice surfer. This white sandy beach is the stunning 'necklace' you see from your villa. Complimentary beach shuttle transfers are available at scheduled times. It’s also a great place for catching a sunset or two, and a spectacular scene is set when lobster fishermen light up their boats under an already starlit sky.
- Picnics are the best way to enjoy a day out and Lombok offers you the option of picnicking on secluded beaches or amidst its tropical lush landscape. The team at Selong Selo can attend to all arrangements where advance booking is recommended.
- Surfing or paddleboarding lessons can be arranged with trained skilled instructors. Enjoy the surf and the sand, Lombok has plenty of both on offer.
- Love the local food? A private cooking class can be arranged either in-villa or at Aura Lounge & Bar. Some of the freshest ingredients from our 'Chef’s Garden' and local suppliers are used to create divine dishes where you get to enjoy the fruits of your labour.
- The southern coast of Lombok has abundant marine life. Plan a fishing trip where you can catch your 'fish of the day' and have it barbecued later. Team Selong Selo will make all the necessary arrangements.
- Make a beeline for the waterfalls up north. Located 50km away, Benang Stokel and Benang Kelambu boast 20-metre high drops where the adventurous can plunge into pools below. It’s a wonderful day out, with a picnic lunch thrown in for good measure.
- Gili Islands to the north of Lombok, known for their crystal clear waters and vivid corals, are unbeatable a snorkelling trip. Experience the sheer joy of witnessing the vibrant underwater world, an alternate universe. With schools of fish swimming by multi-coloured reefs, it can only be described as extraordinary.
- Its mountainous landscape makes Lombok a trekkers’ paradise, with plenty of paths meandering up gentle slopes. Serious trekkers can scale jungle-clad Mt.Rinjani, Indonesia’s second highest active volcano with a mesmerising turquoise lake at the summit.

No words can describe how wonderful our stay was. The reception was so amazing,and all the staff as well. The butler phone is my favorite, this is amazing. You ask for a driver and the butler reply will be there in 5 mins and guess it come in 5 minutes. We enjoyed our stay so much.24-Jan-2020 - 26-Jan-2020 Blue M
