It was very peaceful as set back from main road but only 2 mins away from main street. Lovely friendly staff... More

First the positives: The staff were absolutely lovely! Really welcoming, always asking if you needed anything/how your day was going etc. Excellent location! A few steps to a really nice part of the beach. It's at the far end of the strip so not too busy but still a short walk to main bars/restaurants. We always managed to get a... More

Peak season on Gili T means all the room rates are hiked up. We paid 300,000Rp for one of the cheap rooms in the homestay with a fan when we arrived on the day. Showers were very salty but no other complaints. It was a 70m walk from the beach. Price included breakfast and a spot on the sun loungers.... More

This is my favourite accommodation of all time. Our perfect little room above reception (room 13) where you can listen to the waves while you sleep and listen to the beats coming from my second home/living room at Dicky's bar. The staff are amazing and can't do enough for you. Always happy and great to party with...Randy!! Also away from... More

I can't possibly say enough good things about Herman, Dicky and everyone else at Gili Smile. Omelettes and pots of coffee delivered to our balcony every morning, escorted snorkeling and sunset cycling trips (our choice, of course, they were never pushy). I will definitely be staying here again next time I am in the Gilis, and I'm sure after that... More

We stayed for 3 nights @ the homestay. It was basic but alright! There was a porch were you can sit and relax. The people are really kind. Just ask if you need / want something and they try to arrange it. So they a campfire and started making music. Very nice atmosphere! Thanx!

After travelling almost the whole day; and arriving late and tired at Gili Trawangan, we walked past this Bungalow; stopped to ask for direction to a nice quite place, that’s when we met Ryan, who pointed us the direction to the other side of the island but said, please come back here if you cannot find a nice quiet place...
