While still in soft opening, the opening of the Pullman is as important as the new international airport in 2011, the first international flight to Perth Australia in 2019 or the MotoGP in 2021. That will boost the reputation of South Lombok as a tourism destination for international travelers, by adding a new range of premium accommodation and facilities. The hotel will boast 400 rooms and suites, international dining as well as 5-star seafood restaurant, a ballroom to host conferences. They also introduce a new hiring and management style mixing more international and qualified labor with the local one.
We expect more international flights to add such as Scoot from Singapore in October or Air Asia from Perth by the end of the year. Rumors are also circulating about Sydney and Dubai routes. South Lombok number of visitors have recovered somehow but remains 30% below pre pandemic levels. The wealthier part of the pie is still missing: the families with kids, the long-distance travelers from Europe especially, and the weekend hipsters from HKG and SG.
The Superbike will take place on November 11-13th, to make that usual quiet month, a high season event. The future bodes well.
