AS THOUSANDS of urban professionals choose to relocate overseas, spectacular residences and preferential visas provide a unique opportunity to start a sustainable new life in paradise.

According to Jack Brown, Co-Founder of Invest Islands said Lombok, the idyllic Indonesian island, is rolling out the welcome mat for expats. With its lush green interiors, blissful beaches, sparkling seas and pure air, it is no surprise that many city dwellers would be tempted to leave their compact apartments for a spacious and luxurious pool villa in Lombok.

“Just a few years ago, this kind of relocation would have seemed impossible. But in the post-pandemic era, with mindsets changing and technology advancing, this vision is becoming a reality for many forward-thinking executives and entrepreneurs,” he said.

Jack Brown explained that to make Lombok even more alluring, the Indonesian government recently announced a new five-year, tax-free visa², which has already been nicknamed the “digital nomad visa” and is expected to be popular among young, footloose global citizens. Alternatively, another innovative visa scheme has been created for second home owners³, including retirees, who are attracted by the wonders of Indonesia.

Invest Islands, he continued, Lombok’s leading real estate investment company, is now inviting professionals to live, work and unwind in their own pool villa or residence, surrounded by nature and supported by international amenities and the latest technology.

With a choice of high-end, eco-friendly projects in south Lombok, including branded five-star resorts and bespoke residences, all within 30 minutes’ drive of Lombok International Airport, Invest Islands can help Hongkongers realise their dreams of a fresh start, away from the city.

Nestled at Torok Bay on the island’s south coast, Gran Meliá Lombok is a unique luxury retreat that features 110 pool villas, including beachfront duplexes and one-to three-bedroom hillside sanctuaries, crafted in a variety of dramatic architectural styles.

“For a truly tailor-made investment experience, Invest Islands lets owners pick their perfect plot of land and work with leading architects and designers to craft a heavenly new home that meets their own high standards and bespoke requirements, with options for a wide range of budgets,” he noted.

“Now, with seamless connectivity and the rise of the ‘work from anywhere’ culture, this vision of a better life can become a reality. Invest Islands invites all Hongkongers to discover how an affordable investment can elevate their standard of living and potentially improve their physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Our five-star, eco-friendly villas and residences will help owners and their families find their own private paradise,” Jack Brown concluded. [sources/]
