About Lotus Hotels
Lotus Hotels operates four exotic diving resorts in Indonesia, each offering a distinctive experience for our guests. Designed with comfort and attention to detail, excellence in service is our top priority. In all our day to day operations, we are mindful to tread lightly on the environment, all the while ensuring to exceed guest’s expectations.
Diving, cultural trips, indulging in our Spas or simply relaxing by the beach are just a few options guests can do in our hotels. All our in-house restaurants offer delicious selections of healthy local and international dishes, sourced locally as much as possible to ensure freshness and quality.
Our incredible staff are trained to help guests make the most of their time and accommodate special requests. Their genuine joy to make our guests feel pampered and at home has been testified by many, and has truly become a trademark in all our hotels.
As diving resorts, all of our properties are 5* PADI Certified, each having their own Gangga Divers Dive Centre. Fully equipped and professionally staffed with conservation in mind, our Gangga Divers Centre have reputations as some of the best in Indonesia.
It is a privilege to be located in some of the most beautiful coasts of Indonesia’s biodiverse and culturally rich archipelago. But with this privilege comes responsibility. At Lotus Hotels, our purpose is to bring a long-term positive impact to our host community and enhance the health of its natural environment. We believe that a business model based on sustainable tourism such as ours can bring about this positive change.
Mission and Vision
Our vision and mission below serve as our internal and public commitment to streamline our collective efforts and move towards the same direction.
Our vision is to be a leader in sustainable tourism business in Indonesia.
Due to our relatively remote and less developed locations, our hotels are by default a good ambassador to spearhead sustainable tourism across the Indonesian archipelago.
By choosing to stay at one of our hotels, guests will indirectly contribute to the sustainability and wellbeing of the local people and the environment.
With an effective sustainable tourism business model, any locations can replicate this model and receive the aforementioned benefits for the host community, thereby catalyzing positive impact and raising the bar for sustainable tourism development.
