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

This is the only fast boat company that I have traveled with, but the trip was quick, comfortable and felt very safe. Bought tix from a little stall in Padangbai for 400,000Rp return, and could buy bintang while sitting on top of the boat for the trip for 25,00Rp. Would defiantly travel with them again.

Was booked on 11am boat Padangbai to Gili T. Boat was at Dock, then sailed to other part of Barbour, with crew laughing. Turns out the joke was on us. They cancelled the 11am boat and stuck everybody onto the already crowded 1pm boat to save gas and increase profits. Passengers who were kept waiting on the dock for two... More

From Lombok I went to Bali by boat. The agent I booked the ticket with told me the boat leaves at 10am. Their leaflet says free pickup from the hotel so I called Eka Jaya but this only applies Bali. The person on the phone said there won't be a boat at 10am but at 11am so I tell him... More

I would not be reporting this kind of episode, but in the month of May I was in Bali Eka Jaya and hired to go to Gili Islands and had my camera stolen by the driver who took us to the port of Padang Bay , which for those who do not know , is the place where boats depart... More

I had never been to Gili T before and the reviews of these fastboats was very off putting. We were a group of 6 travelling. My driver booked for us and assured us the company was safe. I had my doubts and to be honest was not looking forward to the trip. I must say that we were more than... More
