Glass Bamboo Bungalows is a unique home located in Sembalun. Facing sunrise over the town's main attraction of multicoloured fields, we live in a prime location for preparing to trek Rinjani excursions or simply chilling out for a few days. We catch our fish fresh, grow our own organic strawberries, and have been Indonesia's second highest volcano rangers for the past ten years. We hope you join us and allow us to show your our culture and lifestyle.

The space
We are close to both parts of town facing the beautiful sunrise over fields between mountains. There are shops and markets either side, easiest always by motorbike. We are five minutes from the Sembalum trekking entrance into Mt. Rinjani or an hour from the Senaru entrance.

RINJANI TREKKING

We are park rangers at Rinjani as well as running our guesthouse so we would like to offer you tours to the summit of Indonesias second tallest and still active volcano.

You may go from Sembalun taking only 4 hours to the first camp site at the crater before trekking up to the summit the following day or if you wish to catch the sunrise, that night / early morning (12-3am ish).

For a harder and longer trek we suggest Senaru or even the Torean trail, both starting close to the foot of the mountain and taking eight hours to reach the lake or hot springs roughly. We can discuss the trips and prices in person depending on if you require camping gear and a porter etc.

Guest access
You may use all spaces including the kitchen if you like to cook your own meals.

If you would like to taste authentic local cuisine (as our family eat) we can cook you dinner and you just pay us directly depending on what you would like.

We can cook fish, meat, vegetarian or vegan. Please just let us know when you arrive.

We also make fresh fruit dairy-free smoothies with strawberries straight out the garden!!!

Other things to note
As you may or may not know, Lombok is primarily Muslim and each morning and evening the mosque calls. In the morning it is at around 4.30am and can be a little noisy. It will last about 30 minutes and is the same anywhere and all over Indonesia.

Location

Sembalun Bumbung, East Lombok, Indonesia

It's quiet and calm but also cool at night because of the altitude so bring warm clothes. In the morning the noise is the mosque and bikes passing on the road.

Our places are always located off the beaten track. We are locals who know all the hidden secrets of the area, away from mainstream and overpriced tour guides. If you want to share stories, eat authentic home cooking and live like a local in the area you won't be disappointed here. My motto is 'Do what you love, and love what you do'. I live in the Uk and Thailand and co-host friend's homes so they can meet other travellers like myself, and more importantly, so other travellers can meet awesome locals!! My other interest is independent film production so search youtube PLASM PRODUCTIONS - MR TASHI for a beautiful short based in Ladakh!!!
