The staff at Samba Villas was excellent. Everyone was very helpful and polite. The rooms were terrific and so was the food. Rooms were clean, fully airconditioned, and the TV worked, The snorkeling on the beach in front of the restaurant was fantastic. It is also located in a great place. It is not too far from where the boats... More

We travelled as a family of 2 adults, 1 x 7 year old, 1 x 4 year old. Our room was spacious, water was hot and although the air-con seemed to struggle a little at times, our room was always cool enough to be refreshing. Staff were very friendly and so helpful. The massages were good. The pool was small... More

Great service, the staff and location are what makes this place a great place to stay on gilli T. The fact that you can swim with turtles right out the front of the hotel is a bonus. Would definitely stay here again of I went back to Gilli T.

The air-conditioner for both of our rooms were not cold at all. We have highlighted this to the hotel staffs for several times, however no action has been taken. The staffs only informed us that all rooms was fully booked, therefore no changes can be done. This incident was very dissappointing whereby the treatment that we received was not as... More

This premium room was next to the reception and our private pool was facing the reception. This was the high light of our premium 3 bedroom private villa. The property is old... More

Pretty nice hotel near of the ends of the Gili T strip, which was perfect. Staff was quite helpful, and the room was pretty clean with a good setup. Have snorkelling rentals and restaurant attached to the front of the hotel, on the beach, for simplicity. Recommend eating at nearby restaurants though.

This hotel deserves an excellent review based solely on their staff. From the moment we arrived to when we left I felt as though the staff made it their priority to make us feel comfortable. They are good fun too which is always nice. We did encounter some problems the lock on our door was broken but the staff dealt... More

The breakfast was freshly cooked for you , with a choice of eggs a number of different ways, pancakes or pastries, as well as Indonesian... More

We loved our stay on Gili T and will certainly be returning. We loved having Samba Villas as our home away from home. The room we had was cozy, modern and fresh and we were very comfortable there. The location of the villa is not too far from the harbour so it wasn't too difficult with our luggage and yet... More

Dear Guests, Andy will love your review but indeed he is a bit to tall for the luggage. Thank you so much for your nice review. It is the guests lighting up the place and we just provide the place and the staff. Come back soon bring a bigger luggage for Andy :) Love from Samba Team More
