A new beach club and villa-resort concept is to open on the island of Gili Meno off the coast of Lombok in Indonesia in early 2016.

The Bask Resort Gili Meno will feature 81 individual villas totaling 98 rooms in studio, loft, two-bedroom and three-bedroom suite layouts.

The eco-resort is being developed by a team of Australian creators led by entrepreneur Greg Meyer. He has been joined by creative director George Gorrow and architect Gary Fell.

Local thatched roof, bamboo-framed fishing villas serve as inspiration for the resorts architectural design while flat garden roofs, textured concrete and sleek wooden finishes combine to form an aesthetic that is both contemporary and authentic. 

Situated on 300 meters of private, white-sand beach on Gili Menos west-facing shore, the Bask Resort Gili Meno blueprint features a wide range of facilities which includes a beach club offering a panoramic beachfront and lakeside views from its infinity pool deck. The indoor cocktail lounge and beach bar will serve locally sourced organic food and beverages including a raw beer designed to tempt even the most health-conscious drinker.

Adding even more Australian flavour to the overall Bask Resort Gili Meno concept, the restaurants menu of Indonesian-influenced Asian and Western cuisine will be designed by Chef Dan Moran of Sydneys iconic Rockpool Bar and Grill while Australian mixologist Mark Ward of Hugos and the creator of Regal Rogue Vermouth will concoct his signature cocktails blended with unique local ingredients.

The resort facilities will also include a state of the art spa and wellness centre which will offer massages and local therapies.

The Gili Islands are an archipelago of three small islands - Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air - lying off the northwest coast of Lombok. Easily accessible by international airports on Bali and Lombok, fast-boat ferries and private speed boat charters, the islands have seen a steady increase in tourists seeking adventure and looking for an idyllic alternative to neighbouring, over-developed, and very heavily-trafficked Bali.

Local authorities and land owners have endeavoured to preserve the regions natural splendour through conservation efforts including the Gili Eco Trust as well as keeping the island free from motorised vehicles.

Bask Resort Gili Meno will feature a recycling program, no-plastic policy, a water treatment plant, and composting system.
