This was our 2nd trip to Samba Villas and we still found it just about all we could ask for. Perfect location, not to far from the night life, bars and night markets. But still quiet, excellent service and room. Wi fi a little dodgy, stopping every 1/2 hour or so, but still it was better than some places on... More

My sister and I shared the Asuka 2 villa with one queen sized bed. We didn't see any bed bugs however once we returned back to Aus, we have both developed hundreds of very itchy bites and blisters. They are unbearable. Apart from this, the accommodation and staff were great. You are always taking a chance with bed bugs anywhere... More

Location is a plus for this villa. Villa was right by the beach. The room was big enough for all four of us. Beds were comfortable. The outdoor shower was the best feature of the villa. Great service and friendly staff. Wifi was weak though.

Booked online and got there to be upgraded. The staff there are friendly enough but just wayyy to in your face and hassled you! We had already paid hundreds of dollars to stay there we didn't need to be hassled every single time we went to walk out to go into their resturant for food or drink or to book... More

We had a wonderful stay here. Great service from really friendly staff. Location was perfect as you are just north of the busy part of the strip. Rooms are off the road so really peaceful, quiet and private. Room was lovely with great aircon and fan. Massage was great. We snorkelled right from the beach out front and saw turtles... More

We had a family villa for two nights in May. The room size is fantastic, and they easily fit two adults and two children. The location is great, and the villas have a nice garden, pool and beach access. The rooms are a little dated, but overall quite nice. Good aircon. The food, breakfast was not great. The food was...

Dear Dean35, Thank you for taking the time to write a candid review during your stay with. Your point on the food selection is well noted, and we'd take a serious note on the island-wide challenge with the fly issue to the best we could. Gili Trawangan has a lot to offer, and we're glad you'd give a fair chance... More

You can't beat the location or the rooms for size or value. And the staff were fantastic. They knew our names and favourite drinks. We used the massage/beauty facilities daily. However the restaurant was a little disappointing. The bar service was great with a band most nights. However the breakfast that was included had a limited menu. Even the dinner... More

Lovely airy suites/villas with high ceilings and open air wet room, the odd niggling problems with electricity supply, wifi signals etc that you'd expect anyway, but the staff always helped out really quickly, a very friendly place next to the beach, even if no sea view from the villas themselves. Would happily stay again.

Samba villas was amazing and was such a nice place to stay. Right on the beach where we swam with the sea turtles. The food is amazing and great value for money. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting somewhere nice but affordable to stay. Staff are so friendly and have loads of helpful information.
