Pondok Santi was just fantastic. Stayed here as part of our honeymoon trip in October and really could not have asked for better accommodation. Having only six villas on a sprawling estate with private beach really gave a boutique feel to the whole place. The staff were extremely efficient and very friendly, and we were lucky enough that the pool... More

We were lucky enough to spend 7 nights at Pondok Santi and the only thing we didn't like was leaving. What we loved; - Baz, Georgie and the beautiful staff - Sleeping at night with the windows open, listening to the sound of the ocean - The private beach - The fact that is was close enough to walk to...

Paradise exists and it is Pondok Santi. Lush gardens filled with palm trees and pure tranquility, this is a perfect place to completely disconnect from the world. There is a lovely beach right in front of the gate, with hammocks and private hotel beds. The breakfast is terrific. Managers and staff make you feel at home. I don't think there... More

What a beautiful resort. Pondok Santi used to be a coconut plantation so the overall look of the place is tropical, very beautiful. Much to my surprise I saw Rugby posts over in the corner of the garden, then I meet Baz and Georgie the managers, who are Kiwis and it all makes sense! Baz and Georgie make you feel... More

We stayed 3 nights at Pondok during our honeymoon. The situation of Pondok is good: close to the center and night life of Gili T but not too close which guarantees you quite silent nights. The garden of Pondok is beautiful as is the private beach. However we regret that the management did not inform us prior to our arrival... More

What an incredible place. It's a short walk, bike ride (highly recommended, easiest way around the island) or horse and cart from the busy beach front of Gili Trawangan. It's spacious, with only 6 (gorgeous) bungalows on a huge property so you can sit back, relax and soak up the feeling of solitude..which is a huge deal if you're not... More

Stayed there for 5 days from August 23 to August 28 (travelling as couple). The resort is located in the south of Gili Trawangan, just a few minutes of walk away from the East side which has all the restaurants and bars. It's an oasis of peace and relax, the bungalows are superb and we have had the warmest welcome... More

Pondok Santi is an oasis in Gili Trawangan, close to all the go-to restaurants but just far enough to avoid the noise. There are only 6 beautiful villas on this very large estate so there is a great sense of space and tranquility.

Georgie and Baz make this place a total Gem, they really make it feel like coming home. Beautiful property, amazing beach, phenomenal staff, unreal boat, delicious breakfast. The room and bathroom were perfect, once they have a pool it will be absolute paradise (being built now). Gili isn't the quietest island though so I'm glad I had ear plugs, though... More

Me , my wife and daughter spent, on last August, ten wonderful days in this great location.
