A $600 million resort project will soon take place on the beachfront of Kuta Beach and Tanjung A’an, Lombok Island. This project will be jointly developed by Dubai-based Emaar Group and government of Indonesia. This follows the completion of gleaming Lombok International Airport (LIA) which will soon be functioning. A direct new road will also be built from LIA to the planned resort.
Emaar has earlier said that due to global economic downturn, it’d postpone the project, but it seems the project will soon take-off. The resort is said to be ‘’specially-designed” for tourist from the Middle East, and there’ll be direct flights from the Middle East cities to Lombok.

Oh my God! I’ve never seen a beauty island like that one. Oh, Lombok! It’s actually better than Bali island if you think carefully. I wanna live there. Who joined with me? Hehe
