Puri Mas Boutique Resort & Spa is located directly on the beach on the island of Lombok Indonesia.
Why is it special?
The land where Puri Mas sits was originally purchased by Marcel De Rijk from Holland, 13 times Dutch Professional Ballroom Dance Champion.
His dream home was to be built on the land, but unfortunately for him, and fortunately for the guests who now visit the beautiful resort; the Lombok Government changed the rules and designated the land for “tourism only”.
Puri Mas was born out of this legislation and today guests enjoy staying in one of the most beautiful resorts on the island of Lombok – which is also home to its founder who welcomes these guests daily to share his home.
Besides enjoying the opportunity to spend a holiday in Puri Mas, your stay is a “holiday with purpose”. Every guest indirectly helps to fund the “Friendship Through Dance” program that Marcel has opened up for children from 5 years to young adults.
Young people who might never even see a Latin dance, now have the opportunity to learn with a master the amazing art of dance and all that goes with it. The most important part of this project is that it is now bringing young people of all religions closer together and dancing in harmony.
