My first comment on T A is unfortunately this bad experience just happened 1.5 hour ago. Here is the story.. We bought two return tickets from Padangbai to Gili Air 3 days ago. Our mistake was that we bought them from a tourist booth in Kuta, who was showing us "another "fast boat company with good representation when he sold... More

They sold us return tickets with shuttle to... More

We booked a day trip to Gili with this fast boat company. To start, they left over one and a half hours late. They told us that our return trip at 1500 was with another company and everything was arranged. When we attempted to get on the return boat we were informed that there were no more seats until the...

I wanted to add some positive notes for this company, cause they don't seem to be getting a fair shake. The trip to Gili is all based and weather and sea conditions, and this is out of the control of your tour company. Now the Eka Jaya boat is nothing special but it will get you to your destination. There... More

Simply horrible service. The boat did get there and did get back, so that's one star. Everything about the hotel pickup and drop off was horrible and the scene at the port is a total disaster. I've been to Indonesia and Bali many times and normally experience great service but the customer facing team at Eka Jaya (particularly our shuttle... More

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!!! Our hotel in Candidasa booked our fast boat to Gili Trawangan (with return from Lombok) for us on GiliCat. A driver, named Made, picked us up at the hotel. He took us to Eka Jaya instead of GiliCat. Before we realized the switch, they had already taken our bags. Then, we specifically told them that... More

I reserved a two way ticket in Kuta, Bali to Gili Trawangan using Eka Jaya. I put down a deposit of 50,000 rupiah, the total cost of the two way ticket was 400,000 rupiah. I was picked up early morning by a shuttle van that took me to Padang Bay. Once I was in their office, I paid the remaining... More
