Location Here’s our quick guide to the MotoGP in Mandalika, Lombok, and some advice for the weekend. Having just completed a lengthy track test with the world’s top motorcycle MotoGP World Championship teams, last-minute changes are being added to the Mandalika Street Circuit track in anticipation for the 2022 MotoGP World Championship hosted in Kuta Mandalika Lombok, Indonesia, on the 18th–20th of March 2022.
Last year saw a successful debut race for the World Superbike Championship final despite COVID and lousy weather. The race was a success, and participants raved about the beautiful scenery, fantastic people, and epic track.
With COVID restrictions being phased out and quarantine expected to be lifted in March 2022, Indonesia appears to be on track to reopen in time for the 2022 MotoGP World Championship in Kuta Mandalika, Lombok, Indonesia.
Various provisions exist, such as glamping and camping facilities near the track site; however, if you have transportation, multiple accommodations are available across the island of varying degrees of luxury and proximity.
Things to do in Kuta Lombok can be found here.
Kuta Mandalika is located on the southern tip of Lombok, which is primarily located close to the airport and within a 20-minute drive of the small town and adjacent Mandalika Street Circuit Track.
A guide to getting to Kuta Lombok is here.
Currently, only domestic flights access the island via significant cities such as Surabaya, Jakarta, or Bali. All are within a short flight distance, and we hope that international airline traffic will resume for the event.
Other key options for accommodation during the event would be Mataram, an hour and a half’s drive, or Senggigi, a short distance further and more tailored to tourism. At the same time, Mataram is the capital city of the island.

It may also be worth looking at other smaller towns such as Praya and others for more basic, simple homestay accommodation closer to the event.
The local town of Kuta, where Villa Amani is located, has all the resources and amenities you need, including excellent restaurants, supermarkets, and many other things to do. We expect large amounts of traffic during the lead-up to and during the race weekend, so ensure you are prepared.
