There are two ways to go to Lombok, by air and by ferry.
By air : 25 minutes flight from Denpasar to Mataram Lombok provided by local air carriers. Garuda, the national airliner, set an evening schedule to Mataram Lombok based on daily flight.  The other airliners put their schedule in the morning and afternoon.

The other choice is by Ferry from Padang Bay harbor to Ampenan Lombok. It is cheap, mingled with local passengers and it takes four hours to get across.

Or if you don’t want to waste your time there is rapid  boat GILI CAT starting from Sanur.
Actually the passengers are transfered from Sanur by car to Padang Bay Harbour and from there the Gili Cat will cater them to Lombok in just 2 hours time.


This is how it works.
