We recently stayed on Gili T at Bale Sampan bungalows. The bungalows are a short 400m walk from where the boats drop you (not at the wharf- a beach drop off). The staff are friendly and helpful and are happy to organise transfers and have bikes and snorkelling equipment to hire for the day at competitive prices. Breakfast in the... More

Stayed just one night in Bale Sampan as we had another booking at another resort at the North Beach, but it left a good impression. Prior to our arrival, Harriet provided us with clear directions to walk from the pier (just 5-8 minutes!) through email and also offered to help with booking our fast boat tickets when I asked for...

Best place to stay in Gilli Trawangan! We had an amazing 5 days staying here. The location is fantastic; 10 min walk from the harbour and the main bars and restaurants and directly across the road from the beach and an area of coral reef which was super clear and where we saw turtles everyday! The bungalows were perfect; spacious,... More

I truly can not speak highly enough about Bale Sampan. From the accommodation, to the food, the staff and the service - Bale Sampan far exceeded any hotel within this price range we have ever stayed at. The facilities are extremely clean and well presented. Gardens and pool are very well kept and make for an inviting and pleasant welcome... More

Lovely gardens and big clean rooms tucked away from the front, with comfortable bed and generous verandah. Establishments is over 5 years old. The staff are fantastic in particular "Rudy" - the manager. Delicious daily breakfasts, directly across from the beach and about 10 mins walk from the port. Will definitely return.
