We couldn't have wished for a better end to our holiday in Indonesia, it was magic. The luxury estate is situated a short walk from the hustle & bustle of the main strip but yet feels a million miles from anywhere.

Being a retired 5 star Hotel General Manager you could say I'm particular. Pondok Santi exceeded all my expectaions and the staff in particular are very friendly,yet not obtrusive. This peaceful spot (on what is known as a party island) is an oasis of quiet and tranquility surrounded by over 200 coconut trees and rolling green lawns - a very... More

If you want to go to Gili Trawangan, stay at Pondok Santi! I stayed there for a week, and I would have loved to stay more days!

Pondok Santi is without a doubt the best place to stay on Gili Trawangan. We spent 7 days there after 5 days on Gili Air, which in January (with clouds and storm) was way too quiet for us (think empty restaurants, of which there aren't even many). As Georgie (the host) said after, Pondok Santi rescued us! To start with,... More

every people i met said that Pondok Santi is a little bit far from the Gili Trawangan Harbour - for me pondok Santi is just a couple minute away from the hustle of Gili Trawangan which is perfect for me.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Pondok Santi Estate is an 8-hectare property, making it one of the largest and most manicured pieces of land on the island and only a 5-minute walk to the main restaurants, cafes and bars. Large open grass areas, day beds, Palm and Frangipani Trees are scattered throughout the property allowing you to find your own piece of paradise. The beauty of Pondok Santi is the share size of the grounds and small number of bungalows available. This is by far the most unique and natural eco friendly property on the island. The Estate houses 6 quaint one-bedroom one-bathroom Balinese bungalows positioned within 20m of the beach. Each Bungalow has an outdoor covered front deck, day bed overlooking the gardens, queen size bed, air conditioned, complete with a beautiful traditional outdoor bathroom. Princess Margaux was designed and hand built in neighboring Lombok Island. The traditional outrigger boat can comfortably accommodate 20 people, has a downstairs and upstairs level, built in ice boxes, an MP3 music system, toilet and an oversize day bed for those romantic or sunset cruises. The boat is very special and is the perfect boat for cruising around Gili Trawangan or Island hoping. The boat is exclusive to Pondok Santi and can be rented anytime demand permitting. Due to the small number of rooms available, bookings in advance are highly recommended. We look forward to making your holiday to Gili Trawangan the most amazing island experience you have ever had. Georgie & Baz. ... more   less
