This month’s communication has a very different format. Not just because of the current health crisis we are faced with, that of COVID-19, but because we feel it’s a time for building connection and to look after each other more. We continue to be in good spirits throughout these trying times, coming together as a community affected, inspired to remain supportive of each other, and the world as a whole.

We are here for the long term and continue on our journey, carrying the flag in the area for sustainability, zero waste, luxury service, superior construction execution and working closely with the community. These plans will ensure we can maintain employment for over 250 staff in the area and allow them the longevity of employment to grow and prosper alongside us.

Let’s first briefly talk about the subject that is at the forefront of our minds, the news, and our inboxes – COVID-19. Here’s how we are responding at Selo Group & Selong Selo.


In response to the rapidly evolving health crisis, Selong Selo Resort facilities have been temporarily closed to not only maintain the health and safety of our staff and guests. We want to thank our amazing teams for all their incredible efforts to support our guests and each other at this time.

Whilst the Resort itself will be closed for what we hope is only a short period, we do have a number of self-contained villas available for those close by and looking for an extended stay with safety and comfort. Stay safe, centered and balanced in a secure and peaceful part of paradise.

On the ground, we will continue to work closely with our Resort operations team, including our newly appointed Training Manager, to upskill and strive to deliver exceptional services and amazing guest experience.

Furthermore, we are ramping up construction on our remaining villas so we can have a fully completed Resort in time for when our valued guests and owners can visit us again. Completing the remaining villa builds, the direct road to our Beach Club and completion of a few other facilities are being prioritised. Read on for further details in our Construction Update below.


Whilst we are at a time of global interruption and impacted by the need for social distancing, there are other ways we can stay connected. Remember we are all in this together.
Social Technology
Facilitated connections will aid all of us in staying as healthy as possible during this time. Use video as a way to have conversations with friends, colleagues and friends. Look for communication channels in your local region to stay connected with current news and health alerts. This may be via websites, whatsapp, or facebook to name a few.
Connect with Nature
Take a walk in nature, on the beach, in the forest, and give gratitude for the beauty nature offers us.
Let’s Get Social
Follow Selo Group on our social media channels, we’d love to connect!



Our Selo team is passionate about sustainability, supporting our Lombok community and our natural environment. Here’s one of the many ways we are helping.

Beach Clean-Up
As part of our sustainability program, we run a weekly initiative each Saturday morning where locals, and local businesses, join in the clean-up of rubbish on Selong Belanak beach. While the focus remains on educating from single plastic use, we are instilling the Selo best practice of sustainability, supporting our Lombok community and our natural environment.

“Kelapa Bakar”
Looking for a way to boost your immune system? Here’s the perfect drink recipe shared by Anton, our Selong Selo F&B Director, and now a feature on our menu at Aura’s Lounge & Bar.

– Coconut Water from young coconut –
– Egg Yolks –
– Organic Raw Honey –
– Lemon –
– Ginger –
– Lemongrass –

The mixture is blended then baked in the oven for 20-25 minutes inside the coconut.


We are ramping up construction on our remaining Selong Selo villas, the direct road to our Beach Club and completion of a number of other facilities are being prioritised at this time.

With 30 Villas now completed and 17 bespoke Villas under various stages of construction, some only days away from completion, our construction team is busy whilst working within the confines of COVID-19 measures. Construction on our Luxury Surf Villas commenced in March. Training programs have been completed including Coronavirus prevention, Fire Safety and First Aid courses to help up-skill and educate our teams.

Our Kemah Luxury Tented Resort project is also well underway with the first 2 Kemah Tended Villas now completed. Another 4 coming close to completion, along with other Resort works including walkways and infrastructure taking shape.
