Andrew first fell in love with Lombok in 2009, when he discovered its relatively undeveloped and astounding natural beauty. He identified the island as the next Bali and began investing in picturesque Lobster Bay on the south-east coast. Although Andrew lives in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, his relationship with Lombok has seen him return countless times over the years. Andrew has worked tirelessly with the local government, construction companies, and locals to bring his vision to life, and is well-respected within the community. Having spent more than 20 years at a senior level in large investment banks, Andrew knows very well the value of a good investment. His work with Lobster Bay is not only a labour of love but also an astute and insightful investment in the future of the island. Passionate about preserving Lombok’s pristine natural environment, the local community and their culture, Andrew subscribes to a ‘people, planet, profit’ ethos in his developments and is deeply committed to sustainability.
