We were there August 8 ~ 12, 2014. Rented 2 Modern room from Manta-dive. Gili Trawangan - a totally backpacker place. Food everywhere wasn't really that great (even in expensive place like Ombak Villa). But, clean ocean (crystal blue).. nice people. I would go back again, but not with a baby. Diving - crystal blue, good vision (about 30-50m). Saw... More

Really clean room in the traditional bungalow. The outdoor bathroom was really neat too. The location is super convenient to everything in the main part of Trawangan. We noticed music at night, but it wasn't anything to keep us up. There are a lot of those bob-tailed inbred cats on the property. All traditional bungalows are garden view, this was... More

Stayed here for almost a week recently. The bungalows are really nice – OK, maybe not the cheapest places on Gili T, but good value and really nice with plenty of space, and the outdoor bathrooms are great. The grounds are well maintained too. Wifi is included but it was a little sketchy and slow – but island wifi ain’t... More

See the manta bungalow profile pic? The roof, the porch, trees and stars? Its exactly like that! I stayed for 3 nights and its just perfect. Theres a lot of accomodations in gili that are similar but i guess architecture and the fact that gili T is small, where to stay can be very dificult to decide. I stayed here... More

Manta dive bungalows was great value in fantastic location. It is hard in Gili T not to be in a good location as the island is so tiny. However, manta bungalows were modern and clean. The outdoor shower and loo were scary at first, but rather enjoyable. We didn't have enough time to do any diving with Manta but every... More

I can't fault my stay at Manta bungalows. We stayed 7 nights and dived 10 times and it was amazing value (contact them for discounts based the package you want). The bungalows are clean and have beautiful outside bathrooms. They provide free breakfast every morning, you can chose from eggs, bacon, fruit, pancakes and croissants and it all tastes great....

Loved the room, curtains are very thin (in the traditional bungalows) and light so if you want to sleep in I’d bring an eye mask. The bed is very comfortable Breakfast is very nice with a relaxed setting by the pool. Location was great, close to good restaurants and bars. Beach out the front is a little busy with boats... More

The bungalows are really lovely, clean and with amazing outdoor bathrooms. Unfortunately it is quite noisy at night, which can make it difficult securing a good nights sleep. We were promised one bungalow for two nights but due to a misunderstanding of the staff, we ended up only getting another room for a single night, so our first two hours... More

Great place to stay. The location is very good if you want to be in the busier part of the island. All the bars and restaurants are very close (so do take ear plugs if you want an early night). The room was great, wee loved the open air shower. The staff are really helpful and friendly and the breakfast... More
