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. The owners and staff were incredibly welcoming and always stopped to say hello which was a nice... More

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. The estate ( wooden bungalows with veranda and with a huge and functional outdoor bathroom in the back ) results , in its "simplicity", a very elegant oasis of peace in an island which, if necessary, as the other side of the coin,...

Very beautiful property away from many restaurants on the street of Gili Trawangan. I was visiting, so cannot comment on breakfast quality. Beach is just a minute away. Swimming pool is under building right now, according to the staff, it will be ready in September. Beautiful houses with extra large outside showers!

We stayed at Pondok for our honeymoon and it truly is beautiful. The grounds are amazing and the private beach is superb. We loved the whole island and pondok provided bikes so we could go off and explore, it is definately the most beautiful place.

Our stay at Pondok Santi was one of the best holidaying experiences we have ever had. The location is stunning, the estate is breathtaking and to round it off the staff are exceptional.

Picture a coconut grove, with a beautiful private beach looking out across a turquoise ocean. There are six villas, each (if ours was anything to go by) beautifully laid out, with a massive outdoor bathroom, which is super-private. It's really quiet, but only a few minutes walk and you're at Gili Trawangan's best restaurants and bars. It was our last... More
