I quite liked this resort. Let's face it, anywhere in Bali or Gili's you're not going to be spending lots of time at the hotel. This place was nice, it's under construction at the moment so it's not the prettiest to look at from the outside. No noise experienced from construction. I do think anytime somewhere is under renos there... More

I stayed here for 5 nights. The room was basic, but completely met my needs. The only complaint I could have is the construction in front, you have to walk down a narrow path to get to the rooms. However, it wasn't that inconvenient and never had a problem with noise. Internet was only in the pool/restaurant area and not... More

Only 3 rooms are the bungalow style in the pictures. I booked the standard ac twin and ended up with: BED BUGS - we squashed many adding small blood spots to the sheets that already had old faded blood spots from previous guests thin shared walls which sound traveled through without problem non blockout curtains which the sun passed through...

Having spoke to all our staff, it seems you did not discuss any of your concerns with them during your stay. In particular your concern regarding bed bugs as this is something we could have investigated at the time. We have since had your room and other rooms at Pesona Resort checked by the pest control company and they did... More

Stayed at Pesona for 4 nights & had a great stay. We were in a little bungalow that was actually quite comfortable & after staying in a couple of big resorts on Bali & Java it was nice to stay somewhere a little more rustic. Our room was nothing fancy, a comfy enough bed, ceiling fan & functional bathroom with... More

Stayed for 2 nights in Pesona, took the Deluxe Bungalow. It was OK... quite spacious, clean, no-frill type of room, and although it was located at the front of the hotel, surprisingly the noise from construction is not audible. However, sounds from the street next to the bathroom can be heard. Didn't try the restaurant, but breakfast is very limited,... More

We stayed here for three nights and really, really enjoyed our time here. The original room that we had booked into wasn't suitable for our needs, and we were rehoused in another room with minimal fuss and maximum courteous efficiency. Reading through previous reviews, I'm not sure why people would refer to this space as "backpacker" style accommodation: the rooms... More

The Villa wasn't available for the full duration of my stay the only room they had left was the standard room it had no a/c but that didn't matter, the room had fans and I never... More

This hotel is for backbackers, now there is nothing wrong with that as they are needed,but no need to charge a 3 star price! There is construction happening out front, noise from kitchens behind the bungalows,air conditioners that sound like the airport, blowing warm air into a room that has large hole in the fly wires , no fridge, and...

Myself and my partner stayed here for a few nights in April. We booked pesona as it was in the same price range as the hotels we had been staying in Bali. We were a little disappointed with it to be honest. It's certainly not a 'resort', more like a backpackers hotel and believe the excellent reviews for Pesona are... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Pesona Resort. I'm glad you liked the snorkeling, we have one of the best snorkel spots on the island right in front of our resort. There are many things being done about the rubbish on Gili Trawangan as a whole but as with any place that is developing so fast, it will... More
