We are heading to Pearl Beach Resort on Gilli Asahan for 3 nights, before heading up to Sengiggi and the 3 Northern Gillies in July. Our flight lands in Lombok at around 4.30 pm and we will go to Pearl Beach Resort the following day. I am interested in recommendations about where to stay for that 1 night. I am considering Kuta, then perhaps hiring a van and driver to explore the southern coast line prior to meeting our boat in Labuan Poh that afternoon. Can anyone comment on this plan and/or advise an alternative? I would appreciate any suggestions.
