We returned to Samba Villas for our second visit and found the venue much changed since 2012. It is as friendly and relaxing as ever, with a position that is unparalleled on Gili Trawangan. The very best snorkelling is right in front of the hotel and it is one of the few places where boats are not parked on the... More

We travelled to Gili in october, We found it very difficult to choose where to stay, as a lot of the places all look the same. We ended up choosing to stay with samba villas, and chose a 3 bedroom family suite, however didn't realise that this wasn't the villa. The villa is out the front of the place and... More

The people working for Samba Villas are very friendly (especially in the restaurant) and the atmosphere is really nice. Although in the beginning, we were a little disappointed that it was kind of centrally located (many tourists), it got a lot quieter in the evening. Our bungalow room was nice (good and comfy bed!) but could use more closet space!... More

I can't give zero stars, so I have to settle with one. We have just returned from our honeymoon: a 2 week tour of Bali, Lombok and the Gilis. We found it hard to choose a hotel on Gili Trawangan as many hotels have mixed reviews. In the end, we settled on Samba Villas, though we were still apprehensive over... More

We stayed at this hotel in the beginning of September 2014. The hotel was chosen by their statement "beachfront room" at one of the booking engines. In fact there are no beach front rooms at this Island by default, cause all the hotels are separated from the beach by the Central road. But we found out it only on arrival.... More

The staff went out of their way to get you what ever it was you needed, they were genuinely friendly, entertaining and very kind, It was the staff at Samba that made our trip. The hotel itself is in the perfect spot, was clean and... More

We we're welcomed by the friendly staff and given a drink whilst booking in. The room was cosy and clean and we felt at home very quickly. The pool is very uninviting but with beach out front we didn't care too much. The breakfast is simple but nice. The menu for other mealtimes is good and we were happy with... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and were initially enticed by the reviews and pictures on here. The hotel is in a good location if you're looking for cheap eateries, lively bars and touristy shops. It isn't quite 'beach front' as there is a road in between whereby horses and carts, cyclists and pedestrians are walking back... More
