The location of Samba Villas is towards the North end of "the main strip" and is about a 10 minute walk (dragging a big suitcase) or a 3 minute horse & cart ride from the ferry dock. Walking was not an issue at all. The beach at Samba Villas is gorgeous white sand, and there is great snorkelling right in... More

Unfortunately we stayed only one night at Samba Villas. It's located quietly behind the reception and pool, whereas in front you have all the amenities of Gili Trawangan like Cafes, Restaurants, Clubs, Shops... The rooms itself are of very high standard: beautiful shell lamps, comfortable beds and even some rooms with 3 or 4 beds suitable for families with young... More

The location is just 5 minutes away from the harbour so great location to walk to shops, the famous market,etc. We went in low season and as a group of young people we... More

We were staying in Lombok and made a day visit to Gilli Trawangan and ended cancelling our booking and moving out to the island. This place is an amazing paradise and Samba Villas is the place to be. Located in the quieter part of Gilli T far from the party end it is a safe and peaceful place to enjoy... More

Highly recommended if you loves snorkelling. The best spot is right in front of Samba Lounge (directly in front of the hotel). Cosy nice breakfast. Live band at night in Samba Lounge while having your seafood BBQ dinner is a must try. Polite and very helpful staff. Basically you can ask them to get you anything from scuba gear, bicycle... More

We arrived at Gili Trawangan on December 1, 2014 11AM. Just a very short walk from the harbour, brochures were handed out by the staffs outside Samba Villas offering "Happy Hour for Massage" at a discounted rate RP100,000.00 per hour. The massage parlour is located upstairs in the treehouse. Great atmosphere, very clean and being up in the tree we... More

Very comfortable country houses equipped with all necessary. An excellent site near a beach where every day it is possible to see turtles. Friendly personnel. Tasty breakfasts. Travangan left the most good memories.The magnificent voice of Abhy from the bar Sama-sama sounded for us every evening.
