We went to Gili Travagan really excited to go to that place again as my husband went 5 years ago and had only good things to say about this place and the people working there. To be honest we got quite shocked when we arrived. The place has turned into a commercial Padi hub it seemed. A new pool was... More

We arrived in low-season and spent a long time walking the beachfront to find this place. We wanted proximity to the sea, quiet (not in the middle of the party area), and a clean, comfy place to sleep. We found that here for the most part. The room came with air con, which we didn't need but it seemed all... More

We recently stayed at the Pondok Windy and had a lovely stay, the staff are very accommodating and the rooms are clean, have soft clean sheets/towels, good matresses and air conditioning. We only had breakfast at the hotel, but we were able to try pretty much everything over the 5 days we stayed there and all were very tasty. They... More

Stayed here even after reading some bad reviews, but thought we'd go along with the good review about the place and see for ourselves! ...So glad we did, as it is a lovely place in an excellent location! And staff were so friendly! Especially the manager who was always smiley and chatty. The room was actually very big with a... More

Where do I start? It is such a hard place to review and I fear I may contradict myself here which may confuse some people, but here goes... Room was fine although by Indonesian standards, overpriced I felt. Had AC and was large with safe. Took sea view room for AUD$60- odd a night and I would say that description... More

Very laid back atmosphere in the quite area of the area. The bungalows are runned by local people that it's good value. Very friendly staff, mainly Hardy, the director, so kind and always helping you in whatever. Snorkel is an amazing experience in this part of the Island. Good breakfast. Good price! Really enjoyable!

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...
