Welcome to Silverdog Accommodation
West Sumbawa Indonesia

Nestled on the hillside above the small village of Maluk, is Silverdog Accommodation. The jungle meets the sea at Silverdog and we offer front row views across to legendary surf break Supersuck, the island of Lombok and beautiful Maluk Bay.

Silverdog Accommodation is a homestay with a difference. We offer three unique and separate residences on the same property, we have a place to suit your taste and your budget.

Ten years ago Silverdog Accommodation was nothing more than a six by six bamboo shack with a great view. Over the last few years Silverdog has been built from the ground up by local craftsman using local products.

Beautiful red balu decking, together with thatched walls and roofs are just a couple of the features here at Silverdog. Our rooms combine traditional Indonesian building practices and materials with some creature comforts from the west.

Supersuck is a five minute scooter ride away, explore the beautiful jungle surrounds on a mountain bike or on foot, water or land based adventure is at your doorstop at Silverdog, that is, if you feel like leaving the hammock!

The Silverdog project has taken about six years to reach fruition, things have come along way from the bamboo shack and we invite you to share our beautiful views and home with us.

Maluk, West Sumbawa
Despite mining being the main industry, West Sumbawa is still a very traditional and unspoilt island paradise. It really is a place for those seeking adventure and new experiences – a place for travellers rather than tourists.

West Sumbawa is renowned for surfing and is home to Supersuck and Scar Reef two waves recognised world wide for their awesome barrels and treacherous reefs.

Initially, West Sumbawa’s major attraction was surfing, and while surfers are spoilt for choice surfing is not the only adventure activity the Island offers. Mountain biking, hiking, spearfishing and stand up paddle boarding are just some of the sports on offer here in West Sumbawa.

Newmont Mining opened it’s gold and copper mine, Batu Hijau,  here in the mid-90’s and virtually everyone in West Sumbawa is somehow linked to the mine. In 2017 the mine was taken over by Indonesian Company, P.T AMNT. Batu Hijau remains the second largest open cut mine in Indonesia and as a result miners from around the globe call West Sumbawa home from time to time.

While the mine has seen the numbers of westerner’s increase the island is populated by around 1.25 million Muslims and for that reason it is still a very traditional place. We ask that you are mindful of some of the local customs, for example, please wear a shirt when you ride or walk through the villages, no alcohol on public streets and use your right hand or both hands to pass things onto others.

Observing these requests is a small ask and allows you and us to enjoy the beautiful beaches and jungle surrounds in harmony with the Locals.

Accommodation

Silverdog really is a homestay with a difference we offer company and privacy, it’s your choice.

Gather with friends or other guests down at the observation deck/fire pit area. You will see some awesome sunsets so have your camera ready. We also have an out door office/meeting area where we sell beers, soft drinks and snacks. If privacy is what you are after retreat to your own private deck, or outdoor area, enjoy the view and the afternoon breeze. Take a walk around the gardens, there are plenty of spots to set up a chair, and chill out listening to the waves while reading a book.

The Pirate House and the Getaway Room are both air conditioned and fully self contained with their own kitchens, including fridge, stove top, all cooking utensils, together with tea and coffee making facilities. If you don’t feel like cooking or going out for dinner let us know, our friendly staff will deliver traditional dishes from the best warungs in town.

Both of the Pirate House and The Getaway have their own large ensuite bathrooms complete with hot and cold running water and western toilets.

All three residences are beautifully decorated and feature hand crafted furniture, crisp white linen, tea/coffee facilities and fresh drinking is water supplied for the duration of your stay. Fast and free wifi is an added bonus.
