Best way to go to the Gilis is if you have a group of you just take a local boat as it is very reasonable

These 3 Islands Gili Trawangan, Meno and Air are like three different worlds. Trawangan is kind of Ibiza, Meno - better avoid it as there is a lake which is the source of all mosquitos in Indonesia :-) but Air - that's something different. Super quiet place with no cars or whatsoever. You can have a walk around whole island... More

We stayed about seven minutes from Senggigi which is the main tourists centre but stil quiet and has some... More

After negotiating a competitive return deal from Kuta, Bali to the Gili Islands with Tours and Travel company MBA and their very helpful member 'Benny', it couldn't have gone any smoother. We took a speed boat to Trawangan and ending up staying at a really cool hotel for R250 a night, doing bicycle trips around the island as well as... More

I visited Lombok with a group of ladies in the middle of October 2014. We were met at the airport by a driver from Tour East who took us to our hotel (Sheraton at Senggigi). On the way to the hotel the driver suggested a day trip to Gili Islands. Transport from our hotel, boat trip to the 3 Gili... More

The best beach of my life. You swim between fishes of several colours and corals. All the bars along the beach are amazing. If you go to Bali, be sure you spend at least 2 days there

Shame the locals are such idiots as to let it get so disgusting. However,, after saying that the redeeming feature is that the snorkeling and diving even just off the beach is beautiful. Not as beautiful as other parts of the world but a must if you are prepared to ignore the rubbish and filth of the island. GET IT... More

My girlfriend and I returned to Gili Air this month having previously travelled to (and loved) the island in January 2014! However, this time it was a different story! Firstly when arriving at the harbour of Bangsal in lombok we had to pay an entrance fee to the police when everyone else just drove straight through! When we asked why... More
