Gili Meno is the smallest of the habitable islands off the north west tip of Lombok. It is very quiet. No night clubs. No noisy bars. No cars and no dogs. It is a very tranquil place. Because of its size and relative lack of development, it has a very relaxed feel. The Reef just adds to that by being... More

Upstairs is a roomy air conditioned bedroom with good storage and a small balcony with seating facing the ocean. Gili Meno is the quietest of the 3... More

This place was great! The two storey villa, right on the sea front was really cool. We loved having the open air lounge and terrace to chill out, or go out onto our private day bed with huge bean bags, next tone sea.

We settled at this new Gili Meno resort because a friend insisted to stay at the most luxurious option in Gili Meno. I have never stayed at a place that is so overpriced with the rudest management and very average bungalow, there are hundreds of other bungalows with much nicer presentation and most of all, a proper terrazzo open air...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Royal Reef Resort at Gili Meno offers an unforgettable vacation experience. Everyone should experience life on a tropical island at least once in their lifetime - where there is nothing to do but eat, drink, sleep, read, walk, swim, snorkel and relax. No hassles, no motor cars, no telephone (except in an emergency) and far from the tourist hordes. Throw in endless stretches of white sandy beaches, one of the world’s most beautiful coral reefs, and magnificent sunrises and sunsets, and you have "paradise." If this sounds like a holiday that appeals to you then the Royal Reef Resort on Gili Meno is the place to go. Just getting there is a memorable holiday experience in itself. Located northwest of the Indonesian island of Lombok, Gili Meno is reached by sea or air from Jakarta or Bali. On arrival at Mataram airport in Lombok the choice is yours as to whether you want to take the drive along the spectacular coastline, or to go up and over the mountain through the monkey forest, then back down to Bangsal harbour for the 30 minute boat crossing to the sandy white beaches of Gili Meno. ... more   less
