Following to the update on Monday, 23 July regarding the closure of speedboat connections to between Bali, Lombok, the Gili Islands as well as Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Penida, we regret to inform you that there has been an official announcement from the harbor master today that this will be extended until the 29th July. Therefore there will be no speedboat connection running until Monday 30th July at the very earliest.
Guests with speed boat transfers between the islands during this time will be affected and need to have their itineraries rearranged. Direct flights between Lombok and Bali airports are fully booked until 29th July, while some connections passing through Jakarta remain open. Because of potential discomfort, long transport times and the likelihood of delays, we are not recommending local ferries at this time unless no other option exists.
Travellers who are currently on the island of Bali are advised to stay there until conditions change. We are working hard to arrange departure for Bali by plane or ferry for those currently in Lombok. As we continue to look into solutions and alternative travel itineraries on a case by case basis, your Travel Consultant will be in touch about clients affected on the ground and will update overseas partners accordingly.
