Dafam Hotel Management recently organised a media fam trip to Lombok and Bali as part of its efforts to support Lombok’s tourism recovery, following the devastating earthquake that struck the island a few months ago.
During the fam trip, 35 members of the media from Jakarta, Semarang and Bali were taken to tour around Gili Air island, which is now recovering after being hit by a tsunami in August.
Andi Ananto, general manager of Mola-mola Resort Gili Air, said: “The occupancy dropped significantly following the earthquake, but it is now recovering and we are running an average of 50 per cent occupancy (with Europe dominating the market). This shows that the confidence of travellers is coming back.”
The Semarang-based hospitality company has four properties in Bali and Lombok, namely Dafam Savvoya Seminyak Bali, Villa Savvoya Seminyak Bali, The Beverly Hlls Bali and Mola-mola Resort Gili Air, Lombok.
