Sumbawa is one of the numerous islands in the Indonesian archipelago. It is a large island with the total area of 15,448 km², located to the east of Bali and Lombok. Sumbawa is known to some tourists for its great waves and sandy white beaches. Due to the somewhat trying process of getting there and the scarcity of cheap tourist facilities, the island is not visited much by non-surfing tourists which is unfortunate as parts of the island are quite beautiful.
Hotel Aman Gati, which is located at the famous Lakey Beach, would be an ideal option for surfers looking for home-feel accommodation. The garden at the hotel is filled with colour and life – a rampage of tropical greens and stunning seasonal blooming flowers, providing you with a welcoming and warm feeling.
In the centre of the garden sits the Flamboyan Coffee Shop – used as the meeting spot for all friends and “locals” to plan for activities over breakfast, sharing a snack or a beer whilst watching over the sunset.
This resort offers access to surfing all year round, but the best time to surf this area would be between December and March.
