The findings indicate comprehensive knowledge of the general managers' understanding within halal tourism conception in the good category. The opportunities and challenges of expanding halal tourism in Lombok are encountered with creative commerce that is not yet optimized. Attractions such as mosques and natural features have not been appropriately packaged, and human resources must be progressively extended practice. In the meantime, debates in perception and lack of literacy (education) about this conception are incorporated as challenges and opportunities for future halal tourism development.
