Cocotinos Sekotong, a boutique beach resort and spa, is set amidst a coconut grove in Sekotong Bay on the south-west corner of Lombok Island. Guests arrive by air at the Seleparang Airport in Mataram and a 1-hour drive brings them through well-swept towns, lush green padi fields and verdant forests; the final part of the journey follows a winding coastline from picturesque Lembar Harbour to a secluded white-sand beach at Tanjung Empet. The site where the resort is built was chosen for reasons of accessibility (the roads are paved and well-maintained all the way from the airport to the resort), and the availability of electrical power, water and telecommunication links. Furthermore, the resort faces the 3 coconut-fringed islands of Gili Nanggu, Gili Tangkong and Gili Sudak. Fronting the resort is a glorious white-sand beach which spans over 300m, part of which lies within a private cove. While the northern Gilis (Trawangan, Meno and Air) are well-known and developed, these 3 islands in the south-west are still unspoilt, tropical islands. Gili Nanggu, which is closest to the resort, is already rated as one of the worlds best snorkelling destinations by Silkwind magazine. Apart from these 3 islands, there are 10 other islands within an easy boat ride.
