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...

Nice Bungalows, very good breakfast. The location is good, quiet on the mainroad of Gili T but far enough to sleep in silence and enjoy the nice not overcrowded beach. The very best is the crew!!! Thank u Herman, Rendy and Dixionk for making our stay so unforgetable!!!

these 2 = same owner, same place and you can see pictures of both here, so you really may misunderstand. When you book the cheapest accodamation in gili smile bungalow you are actually redirected to gili smile homestay which is just behind, but both places are REALLY different! i generally don't book budget accodomations but i was impressed by pictures...

I stayed 9 days with my boyfriend at Gili Smile Homestay. First night we enjoyed the party with the staffs, Eman and Rendy at Irish Bar. Nice place to stay and the staffs are very helpful and friendliness.
