Indonesia, just like the rest of south East Asia has two main seasons – the dry and wet seasons. Being so close to the equator, the weather is very much tropical and humid with a constant temperature evident all year round.
The wet season begins in in October and climaxes in April. This is also known as the low season and with rainfall evident everyday. Rain tends to come in sudden tropical downpours, which last a few hours, but during the latter months, it can sometimes rain non-stop for days on end.
Although hotels and accommodation will be a lot cheaper during this period of the year, do not be fooled by the weather conditions as many travellers and tourists hit Lombok during the wet season as there is plenty still to do. Roads can become mud clogged during this time so taking precaution is necessary and making sure your fully-equipped with a first aid kit may be something to think about. During December to February, the rough seas can occassionally cancel ferries, so getting onto Lombok can prove difficult.
The dry season is the most popular time of the year to visit Lombok. With the rains reclined and the constant long sunny days, tourism during this time of the year is high and booking early is important to avoid disappointment. Hotels and accommodation are limited on the mainland and especially on the many islands dotted around Lombok, so if this is your preferred holiday destination book through us today. Lombok is a lot dryer than neighbouring Bali and because of this, tourists are flocking in their droves to the island.
Temperatures are a constant all year round, averaging highs of approximately, 27 degrees Celsius. During most months however, temperatures can soar to as high as 31 degrees Celsius, so packing the sun block is essential. The average lows are around 23 degrees Celsius and often felt during the evenings and nights.
During the dry season, it still does rain, but the downpours are often isolated showers and tend to never last longer than 20-30 minutes.
