Kuta Lombok’s best sunset point · Bukit Merese Hills

Kuta Lombok’s sunset point Bukit Merese Hills is one of the most beautiful sunset points in Southeast Asia. We went to Bukit Merese Hills in Kuta Lombok almost every single day to see the sunset.

Bring drinks with you or buy them from local sellers in the parking area.

Young local kids on their motorbikes, Lombok families and tourists drive to Bukit Merese Hills in the late afternoon. It isn’t necessarily a ‘hidden gem’ anymore, but as there is not much tourism on Lombok, the crowds are still very small.

The ride to Bukit Merese Sunset Point takes about 30min from the main tourist area of Kuta Lombok. It’s an easy ride. Make sure to wear a helmet with visual protection (to avoid getting insects in your face during the night ride home).

There’s an entrance fee of 10.000IDR (0,60€).

Bring drinks with you or buy them from local sellers at the “parking area”. Then, you take a short walk uphill. You can choose on which hill you’d like to take a seat and enjoy the view. Then, enjoy your time Kuta Lombok’s sunset point Bukit Merese Hills. But beware – sometimes a herd of cows will casually pass by, but that’s just the way it goes.

And most importantly for when you leave Bukit Merese Hills:

Make sure you don’t leave anything behind but footprints!
