    There is no doubt that Gili offers the best hotel and holiday experience in the World! My family and I continiously dream about going back to Gili even though we have been so fortunate to travel to many other beautiful places in the world. In Gili everything comes perfectly together...hope to be back soon!

    Beyond expectations across the board: Service: the Mr Friday concept is truly differentiating Accommodation: privacy of crusoe villas and unique bathroom settings Food: excellent Japanese restaurant and unique experience at the wine cellar No shoes policy is a unique luxury Dolphins sunset cruise is a must

    Simply excellent! From beginning to the end. Awesome breakfast, great welcome, very nice service. Best over water Villa I've ever seen or been. The atmosphere and environment are really well kept. Transparent blue sea with lots of animals to see!
