We had a day trip to Gili Gede and was hosted by Jett from Via Vacare. She was highly recommended by the owner of the hotel we were staying in Lombok. True enough, Jett is a lovely Dutch lady and it was such a delight to be hanging out with her. She took us to one nearby Gili island for... More

We spent just two nights here on our honeymoon. Found so much peace in a short time. Finding the right jetty where you can catch a boat to Gili Gede was a bit of an adventure (we were promised transport from Senggigi, but they got the day wrong, so we ended up waiting at the ferry for almost an hour...

Firstly: this is not a party island. If you are looking for nightlife, lots of tourists, stay away. If you want to get away from it all and spend a quiet few days reading and going to sleep to the sound of the waves, this is the place for you. The setting is fantastic on an island with gorgeous views,... More

We stayed at ViaVacare in May and had a superb stay. Everything was very well organised by the staff. We enjoyed the Indonesian style lunches and dinners. Maybe the most authentical food we enjoyed on our trip this year. Our 3 year old daughter loved the mandi shower. Sunsets with a cold Bintang were very beautifull and late at night... More

It's really lovely :-) It's quiet, secluded and has its own reef. The owner Jet is a lovely Dutch lady who gives Yoga sessions in the morning and I really enjoyed talking to her about life. The food was nice and we can totally recommend the place for people looking for a quiet spot to practice the art of doing... More

Had a wonderful experience. Couldn't have a better place to stay at Gili Gede. The place the atmosphere.. The people who stay.. The service.. The food and of course the owner give us a memorable and wonderful experience. Feel like home. Gorgeous sunset view in front of the bungalow. A must is a visit Gili Ringgit and Gili Layar. 15...

My partner and I booked a bungalow at the last minute and are so thankful we did. During our month long travel to Indonesia, we had the best sleep in a long time here. This is a remote island and therefore we knew to expect to use the traditional mandi shower and toilet as well as having limited electricity but... More

This place is something special but be warned: remote island means remote island so don't expect any running water or electricity. What you can expect is a small resort with nice solid bungalows and 4 backpacker accommodations in an open bamboo hut (that's where we stayed). All meals are included - you can't order but there will be absolutely authentic... More

This was my favorite stay after 6 weeks (7 different hotels/guesthouses) on Bali, Gili Air, and finally Gili Gede. We spent 4 nights here. The food served here was one of the reasons we came (it was recommended by other travelers for this.) What it offers: Beautiful, quiet (I was never awoken by a rooster, by cats in heat, or... More

Via Vacare simple pleasures My friend & I stayed in the dormitory as the bungalows were booked out. We only lasted there one night, BUT that was because of our tastes & what we could handle. Via Vacare is a beautiful little homely place to stay & I have no doubt we would have lasted longer in the bungalows. The... More
