Why am I begrudgingly writing this review you may ask? Well with only 6 villas Pondoc Santi is special, it has an intimate and welcoming environment with great staff who make you feel like you’re in a luxury home away from home.

Amazing property with great staff- what a wonderful holiday. Pondok Santi is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Gili Trawangan perfectly situated in a nice spot with great restaurants just around the corner. The rooms are clean and the outdoor bathroom concept was a hit with the kids. The grounds at the property are everything that their website... More

Beautiful property with a nice, secluded private beach with a wonderful view of the sunset. The managers and staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. We felt we were more like guests staying with friends rather than at a hotel. Our room and outdoor bathroom were always clean and enjoyed the fresh fruits and pancakes for breakfast. Would definitely stay... More

On a recent trip to Indonesia in September, my partner and I were absolutely blown away by our experience at Pondok Santi on Gili T. After a week of Bali and Lombok, we kicked back and soaked in the tropical atmosphere for 3 nights at Pondok Santi. The main strip in Gili T is flooded with backpackers, Touters, horse carts...

We stayed at Pondok Santi in September after an extremely hectic week in Bali getting married.

We stayed here for two nights as part of a three week tour, and fell in love with the place.

We have just returned from three nights at Pondok Santi. It is a small place with 6 cabins surrounded by coconut palms. The cleanliness of the place was unbelievable!
