I used the Eka Jaya fast boat when travelling to Gili T. They use a new aircon boat but you can sit on the roof if you like. From Bali to Gili T. took around 1,5h. Provides good transport but were late 2 times (ca. 1 hour). I paid 650k for pickup in Ubud, round trip boat ticket and drop... More

Booked with this company and then read so many bad reviews which made us nervous. But Our experience with eka jaya was really good. We were picked up within the said time frame and then driven to padangbai. Pretty easy check in considering the organised chaos at the harbour. Fast boat was running late due to late arrivals via shuttle... More

- Pro's: Good price in comparison to the other speedboats to Gili T. Happy and helpful staff. Lots of possibilities for the return destination (more than the other companies). Movies on board. Seats on the upper deck. - Con's: Hour delay on the way back. The minibus back had multiple destinations (Denpasar, Sanur & Jimbaran). Ours was last, so it... More

At 6.30am they still hadn't arrived so we rang the company to which they told us they would be 5 minutes. At 7am they still hadn't arrived so we rang again, again they responded... More

You are picked up 2 hours before your boat is due to leave. They don't tell you the boat is also a transport for backpackers to and from bali to Lombok. You spend at least 1 hour waiting for the bags to be loaded. A 15 hour day in total with this company for a total of 3 hours on... More

Please, avoid to use this company. You will be attended like an animal, and the boat is not safe. Our experience was terrible, big waves, high speed, lack of safety.

This company were recommended by the suka nusa hotel for our journey from nusa lembongan to lombok. We were told it was a 2 hour transfer, the reality is very different. The trip was sold to us under the name of Bali brio but was in fact operated by eka jaya. They pick you up at 8.30am 2 hours before... More

We bought a return ticket from padang bai to gili trawangan, including a bus from ubud and a bus back to kuta, all for a ridiculous $40 (425k INR) per person! the boats are air conditioned and have a cool sunbathing deck. what's absurd is that it's $100 pp on their website.. so don't do that. at kuta the prices...

We'd booked 9 tickets directly from this company from Bali to Gili Trawangan. They promised to arrange hotel transfer to harbor on our departure date. It's unbelievable that their driver was no show and even their emergency contact number was no body answer. I deeply regreted that why I didn't take most of the bad reviews from Tripadvisor and still... More
