Lombok hit by Earthquake, effects felt on Bali

A 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Lombok island on Sunday evening local time.

The epicenter was located in the north of the island followed by further strong quakes. Indonesia’s disaster mitigation agency issued a tsunami warning and guests on the Gili islands, Senggigi area and surroundings were moved to higher ground. The warning has been lifted an hour later.

Although the earthquakes were strongly felt as well on Bali the main damage has been reported on north Lombok. As of now, there have been 3 casualties from the event, all on Lombok and no foreigners.

We are currently trying to get in touch with all your guests on the Gili and Lombok islands to reassure that all is well. This effort will take some time due to overstretched telecommunication networks and a power outage on Lombok island and will last well into Monday, 6. August but we assume that all your guests are safe.

We will keep you updated directly on any further news.

Best wishes,
