I think I just witnessed the most beautiful sunset of my life.

I’m at the aptly named Hotel Ombok Sunset, on their white sand beach that looks westward to Bali’s two volcanoes, Mount Rinjani and Mount Agung. The sky turns from pink to orange to purple, filtering between the puffy clouds, and reflects off the shallow water. The hotel has set up colourful bean bag chairs at their beachside restaurant so you can sip a cocktail while you witness each evening’s light show.

The hotel is blissfully quiet – just the waves, the breeze and bird song. Rooms are in two two-story buildings or in what are modestly called bungalows (most hotels would call them villas). Each has a balcony or large terrace. Bungalow rooms also have a large bathroom, open to the sky above the garden. Rooms are luxuriously furnished.

Staff are very friendly and learn your name quickly. They’re happy to bring you whatever you need, whether you feel like relaxing poolside or on the beach (but be aware that the sea at this part of the island is too shallow for swimming). Ombak Sunset’s sister property, on the eastern side with better swimming, is Hotel Vila Ombak.
