We stayed recently in the beach front villa which overlooked the pool and then onto the beach. The location was peaceful and very relaxing. The room was spacious enough and laying on the bed you looked out to a perfect view. Plenty of hot water and good air conditioning. Rudy and the staff were so friendly and couldn't have been... More

Rooms are nice, kind of spare villas. Avoid the ones in beach front it s actually in front of the road before the beach and quiet nosy. Breakfast is good but not a large choice though. Only 3/4 options in a menu. But tastes good. Food is ok for a snack. They can help you to organize private boat for... More

Lovely bungalows right on the beach front. Nice private beach area. Breakfast was really great as rather than a buffet they offer you a small menu. Staff were friendly and helpful and provide bike rentals. Definitely recommend this hotel.

A difficult place to review as there were positives and negatives. If there was a "good" category then I'd probably have picked that so here are the pros: - clean rooms with no mosquitoes - friendly staff and a reasonable breakfast included - trips can be arranged at hotel - hot water in showers and safety deposit box in room...

We stayed here for the final 4 nights of a 5 week trip round SE Asia and just wanted to relax. The hotel bungalows are lovely, with spacious rooms, and open bathrooms, all of which were beautifully clean and well maintained. Atuna (I hope I have spelt her name correctly) was very welcoming and she and all the other staff... More

This was our third visit to Gili T but our first with a toddler (18 months ) so we needed to find a suitable property to accommodate our group. Bale Sampan fitted the bill perfectly. We were travelling as three adults and the baby so had two rooms in the garden, next to each other but not adjoining. The room... More

Beautiful villa, very quiet! The rooms are big and the beds are comfortable. Room are well furnished and equiped with A/C. Great staff, very friendly! I really enjoyed the breakfast, simple but cooked with love. We rented a boat with a master diver/guide from the hotel and spent a whole day out in sea. AMAZING.

Great value! We had stayed in the trawangan resort prior to this and to be honest the trawangan was twice as much and there was not much difference between them. Bale sampan was actually far better. The rooms were clean and nice. There was air con. I loved the outdoor bathroom.The staff were friendly. The breakfast was good. They provided... More

The staff are beautiful, the rooms are nice and great bathroom facilities (clean). Beach across the road, they have beach chairs on the beach. The pool is small but great, spent lots of time there. The only thing I missed was tea and coffee making facilities in room. There is a fridge. The restaurant is open 7.30am- 10.30pm. But this... More

Thank you so much for your kind words. Sorry we are unable to provide kettles in the rooms at the moment due to limited power on the island. I hope you took advantage of our free tea and coffee and cake in the cafe for all our guests from 4-6pm. Best wishes and hope to see you again. More

Friendly staff, spotless rooms, nice outdoor shower, laid back, nice simple breakfast, great location. Quiet, fresh and crispy sheets. Will be back for sure, only stayed one night to sight see and still had a nice time. The lounges in the beach also belong to this hotel, reserve your seat with a towel as they go pretty quick.
