A lot of websites mentioned that out of the 3 Gilis, Gili Trawangan is the most popular with backpackers and tourists. As much as I would prefer a quieter and laid back Gili Air or Meno, I decided to go here as it was my first time to the Gilis as it is the most developed. I decided to choose... More

My family and I stayed at Pondok Santi over Christmas and it was absolutely amazing. We woke up and went to breakfast on Christmas morning to the large family sized table set out beautifully with little presents for everyone. The staff got a gift for my 2 year old which was the sweetest thing. Georgie and Baz were lovely hosts... More

Pondok Santi is a little slice of heaven on earth...for us everything was perfect. My partner and I stayed for three nights, and honestly didn't want to leave. We loved: the hammocks hanging beckoningly from the trees in the grounds and also on the private beach; the amazing breakfast served to us on the beach each morning, with delicious Lombok... More

Loved our stay here. The resort is on the south of the island, away from the noisy party strip. The hosts are very accommodating and friendly. We loved the private beach and that we were only a short walk away from the sunset bar. The bungalows are very characteristic and the outdoor bathroom is firstly massive secondly amazing, like a...

Highly recommended for those who want to go and have a relaxing time in the islands. While its in a quiet area of the island, getting to the main center where all restaurants and bars are located is within walking distance (approx. 10 to 15 mins from harbour). The private beach is well equiped but unfortunately you cant swim in... More

We cut our stay at our other hotel (Obmak Sunset) short and moved here. It is a fantastic place, the grounds are lovely, the rooms are luxurious but still bungalows that fit in so well with the island vibe. The staff are fantastic, the managers from New Zealand are around the pool and help you out with anything from transfers... More
