Xmas/NY trip pointers pleaseHey everyone and thanks for looking.
I'm planning a trip over Xmas/NY with my girlfriend and wanted to get anyone's recommendations of things they loved that maybe we could also check out too. We're after the usual, surf, snorkel, natural beaches, eco places to stay and some culture, architecture, fun times. We're looking to get a little off the beaten track, resorts and the like aren't our vibe.
Planning to go from the 20th tof Dec till Jan 7th, fly into Surabaya and then work our way to Ubud for Xmas Day/Boxing day. Thinking Lombok - NYE and after and then fly out from Lombok or Surabaya. Would love to go to the Gili islands too.
Basically looking for people's holiday memories to recommend how far we should explore, which islands or areas we should make a beeline to (e.g. are we missing out on the north shores if we stay on the 'easier' south), we've got a couple of weeks but that time will fly so we'd love to get as much amazingness in as possible.
Would really appreciate any pointers, links, places to stay or anecdotes, hidden gems and warnings.
Please, thank you and thank you again!

1Just go to G-Land from Surabaya and discover Meru Betiri National Park also surfing at G - Land before going to Ubud.Meru Betiri National Park can be reached from Banyuwangi. Take bus to Pesanggaran and from there continue with minibus to Sarongan or truck to Sukamade. From Sukamade trucks ride to Rajagwesi. Place for settle down at Sumbersari.
On your drive to Ubud, take 2 days at Pemuteran area, snorkeling and diving at Menjangan Island.
little bit difficult to find accommodation during peak season in Bali, better you can book online and find at internet.
it's good if you want to go to Gili.
