Should probably start by explaining that we really disliked Gili T. The island could be beautiful but is now crowded and beach sections full of dead coral and rubbish. We've been budget backpacking for a few months and found this the most overrated spot. In this context Pondok is a decent option as it is located in a quieter spot... More

As the result of walking around the whole island to find a place to stay, we came to this conclusion that GIli T's best beach is right here! tranquil water with beautiful calm sandy beach far form noisy market areas (though there are tons of dead corals on the beach but this spot is much better than other ones). we...

You still have a bit of a precarious walk at night as the road isn't finished but these bungalows are good value. Cold showers in an oddly open bathroom. Lovely stilted place for breakfast in the morning or beer in the evening.

Pondok Windy is a great choice if you prefer to get some chill time when you want to get away from the 'busy' side of the island. The staff here were relaxed but always so helpful with any requests, they even sleep out in the reception area should anyone need them! Breakfast is served in huts out the front RIGHT... More

I have been to Pondok on 2 occasions now and I am about to go on my 3rd. I go to the Gilis mainly for the fantastic diving but also for the friendly locals, brilliant food and relaxed atmosphere. The Dive Centre is brilliant. The guys can speak brilliant English, some French and also some Spanish. The courses throughout the... More

...rustic looking on arrival, Pondok Windy we soon learn is the only locally owned hotel/lodge with PADI dive centre on Gili T. The hospitable owner will happily arrange your diving or snorkelling trips and courses as will he a boat to take you to the other Gili islands or over to Lombok. In fact, I would recommend asking for the... More

In the beginning of our stay on Gili T we stayed more south of the island. Because it is super busy there we decided to move to the north. The Pondok Windy Bungalows are very nice, they have a small and very nice pool (more like a hot spring there ;) )..it is directly in front of a more relaxed... More

Great restaurant; great place to snorkel; not too far from main area but nice and quiet. The grilled chicken was great. I wasn't a fan of the barracuda though. Solid service; and great location right on the beach. You have two ride your bicycle about 15 minutes from the main beach area to get here and walk it through sand... More

Our first night we stayed in a place called Lizzard Bungalow. It was cheap and towards the northend of the island. We ventured out more north to see if we could find something for a little more money but with an AC. We came across Pondok Windy, right next to Coral Beach Pizza. Their rooms during high season is 450,000-550,0000... More
