A property christened svarga, the Sanskrit word for heaven, certainly invites comparison to all things paradisiacal. Fortunately, far from being simply the lofty ambitions of its owner, Svarga Resort Lombok does have an ethereal quality about it. A collection of 25 villas nestled against a hill slope along the main tourist stretch of Senggigi, the resort is flanked by coconut groves and is a haven for those seeking a quiet retreat on their island holiday.
