More than 20 world-class dive sites are within easy reach of BASK Gili Meno.
The Meno Wall is within 800 metres of the BASK beachfront. Considered by locals to be the primo dive area, its 18 metre depths are renowned for its tropical marine life, especially its thriving populations of hawksbill sea turtles and green sea turtles.
Head southward along the BASK, Gili Meno coastline to discover the Bounty Wreck—a collapsed pier that’s been brilliantly ensconced by coral varietals.
To the north is Simon’s Reef. Reaching maximum depths of 40 metres, it is comprised of a series of seamounts that attract an abundance of coral varietals. Divers are encouraged to keep an eye out for a rare glimpse of the camouflaged pygmy seahorse in its native home.
For a completely unique diving experience, night diving is the thing. Taking to the waters with a UV torch to illuminate the ocean floor, night divers bear witness to the lives of many eye-catching inhabitants that remain hidden throughout the sunlight hours.
With these destinations and more all within reach, all the equipment you could need, learner dive pools and fully accredited teachers, BASK is a diver’s dream.
Perfect conditions all year round make the Gili Islands a bona fide snorkelling destination. Crystal clear waters are perennially warm (26 to 30 degrees) and boast visibility extending up to 25 metres.
Live reefs abound with turtles, colourful coral, sea life and fish varietals. A bounty of snorkelling sites—including BASK’s own private underwater sculpture park—are easily accessible from the resort.
Masks, snorkels and fins are available at BASK, and our helpful staff are happy to recommend the best sites at any time of year and for any given level of experience, from beginner to advanced.
The Gili Islands and their neighbours are home to some uncrowded and truly world-class breaks.
Secrets is Gili Meno’s own hidden gem. Breaking over a shallow reef around 100 metres off the coast, Secrets’ long and fast tube rides are proudly shared by local enthusiasts.
The south-west corner of neighbouring island Gili Trawangan boasts another hot spot. A fast right reef break, it breaks all year round. During the dry season, it has a consistent swell encouraged by the onshore winds. The nearby island Lombok also features a number of breaks, including Alang Alang Point, Senggigi Reef, Belongas, Selong Belanak and Mawun Beach.
BASK’s onsite booking facility can arrange transfers and recommend breaks to suit the time of year.
First-timers can take advantage of one-on-one and group surf schools at Senggigi Beach, Lombok, a short trip of BASK Gili Meno.
Sea kayakers can glide across Gili Meno’s crystal clear waters to hop from one untouched beach to the next. Whether experienced or apprentice, weaving around coastlines and even wending your way to neighbouring islands is an amazing way to experience the local ocean.
BASK and the locals can take you on a guided tour that includes stopovers for lunch, sunbathing and snorkelling. All the way, the transparent waters make a breathless spectacle of the marine life.
For a slower paced alternative, BASK guests can step into a canoe on the banks of our picturesque natural lake, Gili Salut, and explore the mangroves.
Stand-up paddle boarding is a great way to explore the surrounding waters whilst working out legs, arms and core at your own pace.
BASK’s custom-made paddle boards feature glass bottoms, revealing colourful coral, tropical fish, turtles and the resort’s exclusive underwater sculpture park, Nest.
Perfect for flat water conditions, paddle boarding is a fun, safe and accessible activity for guests of all ages. Known for improving balance, core stability and stamina, it’s a personally productive way to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and warm weather of the Gili Islands.
Lombok—the large and bustling island that neighbours the Gilis—features two world-class golf courses, both easily accessible from Gili Meno.
Lombok Golf Kosaido Country Club is home to an 18-hole course designed by Peter Thompson, Michael Wolveridge and Ross Perrett. Built in harmony with the natural contours of the land, the course boasts views of Mount Rinjani and the Gili Islands. Situated on the north west coast of Lombok in Sire Bay, Kosaido is a short drive from Bangsal Harbour, the main boat port of call to the Gilis.
The 18-hole course at Rinjani Country Club was designed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus. Located in the foothills of Golong-Sedau Narmada, about 30 minutes’ drive from Mataram, it sits 500 metres above sea level and has been laid out specifically to encourage players of all levels. Rinjani also features a clubhouse with restaurant, swimming pool, tennis court, pro shop and café.
Private transfers to both will be easily arranged through BASK’s onsite booking
A host of trails and guided walks are within easy access of BASK, letting you explore on foot at a leisurely pace or with driven dedication.
On Lombok, the challenging four-day trek of Mount Rinjani—Indonesia’s second highest peak and volcano—is widely considered one of the best in Southeast Asia. The hike weaves around the crater rim and lake before moving onwards to Sembalun Lawang.
For something a little less strenuous, half-day treks explore the foothills of the volcano, following old pathways leading through bamboo groves, waterfalls and colourful traditional villages.
Back on the Gilis, hikes become leisurely walks and offer striking views of neighbouring islands and the Lombok mainland. One of the most popular tracks is a low-impact hike through the South of Gili Trawangan, culminating at a scenic lookout point with elevated views across the islands as well as overlooking the hidden, historic remains of a Japanese World War II gun bunker.
BASK’s Spa and Wellness facility offers a wide range of treatments to relieve stress and encourage relaxation.
The world-class facility boasts five massage and treatment rooms with an additional room for pedicure and reflexology services, all staffed by trained professionals.
The lakeside location has uninterrupted views across the water and mangroves, promoting a sense of tranquillity from the moment of arrival. An interior palette of muted tones combines with complementary textures for an organic appeal. The design and materials capitalise on the natural surroundings for a natural flow of both air and sunlight. Textured screens disseminate the natural light throughout, while the stone combination foundations act as an eco-friendly aid to cool the facility.
Looking out across 295 metres of white sand and crystal clear waters, the Beach Club is at the core of BASK’s vibrant culture.
Featuring world-class design and architecture, it will host international music and entertainment, and serve five star food and drink all day every day. It’s the immaculate vision and first-class operation of the Beach Club that positions BASK as one of the region’s leading modern resorts and a genuine cultural hub.
The Poolside Terrace and Beach Bar are the central hub for BASK’s line-up of live entertainment. This central area is surrounded by a selection of contemporary daybeds, sun-drenched loungers and recessed conversational arrangements.
The Indoor Lounge and Cocktail Bar offer a more intimate and relaxed haven for sun-conscious patrons. With fine wine and whiskey as well as BASK’s signature cocktails, it’s perfect for breezy afternoons that transform into indulgent evenings.
Inspired by seasonal local produce, the Beach Club offers a wide selection of dining. Menus are tailored to suit the ambience of each area of the resort, ranging from tapas-style appetizers through to American and Eurasian influenced mains.
For lunch, Cabana style dining is provided throughout the Poolside Terrace and the Private Beach. Serviced by the main kitchen, these make for ideal chill spots, where patrons can soak up the sun and surroundings while enjoying top-quality global cuisine.
The internationally renowned global cuisine at the BASK Gili Meno Resort Restaurant is characterised by casual luxury.
Consulting Chef Dan Moran (Rockpool, Parrot Cay Resort, COMO Shambhala) adds an extra shimmer of class to the secluded tropical haven with a seasonal menu that makes local produce the hero. With seafood from local fisheries and vegetables and herbs grown onsite at BASK, each meal is as light and refreshing as it is satisfying.
Patrons can indulge in a variety of Asian and western dishes, selectively infused with exotic Indonesian flavours using modern techniques.
Casual luxury flows throughout the restaurant’s service and interior styling. The open plan expanse of the main room seats up to 112, with dining privacy and separation provided by indoor plant installations, feature walls, and over 100 aged Champagne, wine, and whiskey bottles.
A private dining area is available to groups seeking world-class food and beverages in the privacy of their very own, five star tropical dining room.
The Beach Bar is the hub for BASK’s vivacious Beach Club entertainment. Seating up to 93, the sand-in-your-toes beachfront venue offers a front row seat for Gili Meno’s famed sunsets.
Mark Ward (Hugos, Regal Rogue) has invented an haute mixology cocktail list that showcases fresh tropical island ingredients, creating unique memorable experiences in liquid form. Mark’s world class beverages can be savoured as a single serve, or presented as a social indulgence for two or more guests to share.
A bar menu will be offered as an accompaniment to afternoon drinks, focusing on raw and chilled appetizers and fresh local seafood, seasonal vegetables with a hint of local and exotic spices.
Adding to the local flair, the bar area is also serviced by pop-ups that serve traditional satay and stir fry dishes flaunting the traditional Indonesian cuisine.
When you arrive at BASK Gili Meno, you’ll be greeted with a drink, to be enjoyed in the comfort of the lounge or the cocktail bar (your choice). Wherever you are in the club, you can register via a mobile device. Your bags can be taken to your accommodations for you, leaving you free to enjoy. Instantly.
BASK’s non-traditional reception area complements the island’s atmosphere of barefoot informality, putting it at the forefront of international trends and technology while simultaneously lowering its environmental footprint.
This is not your regular business centre. It’s a communal productive space distinguished by premium styling and drink-in-your-hand hospitality. With all the modern conveniences you’d expect, the Business Centre has its own all-day dining menu created by chef Dan Moran.
Panoramic views of the resort make it a pleasure to get creative, with windows and open walls extending from the west-facing infinity pool and ocean through to the lake and mangroves at the rear.
It’s not your regular business centre: it’s a technologically-advanced productivity hub in an island paradise with full-service hospitality.
BASK’s onsite booking service provides ultimate convenience to guests. Partnered with leading transport, transfer and recreation service providers throughout the Gili Islands, Lombok and Bali, you can organise it all from your home base.
Transfers and travel options include airport transfers, luxury catamaran, fast boat and helicopter charters.
BASK’s attentive staff have an extensive knowledge of the surrounding islands, seasonal specialties and hidden local gems. They’re happy to recommend activities and excursions to suit your tastes, whether it be a glass bottom boat to appreciate the reefs or a local guide to lead the hike up and around Mount Rinjani in Lombok’s national park.
