Very nice hotel, in a beautiful area. A lot of people com from other partas of the island just to enjoy the snorkeling or the gorgeous sunset. Rooms are beautiful but you would expect more facilities like hot water in the shower, free hand soap and other stuff. Restaurant great, elegant, nice service, good quality/price, the only thing i would... More

We didn't stay at the Resort but ate at the resturant on a number of occasions. Not only great food but the staff were so friendly. Best banana crepes and banana milkshakes I've ever had. Beautiful setting on the beach.

If you are looking to retreat from the busy Gili Trawangan, this is your hotel! Located about 30 minutes "cidomo" (horse carriage) ride, this hotel offers quiet & beautiful atmosphere, quality sleep, great breakfast, beautiful salt water pool, easy access to its private beach for excellent snorkeling and diving. Front desk staff attitude could improve a bit with more smile... More

We stayed here for 2 nights.. the hotel is a bit far from the main market,leaving horse cart as the only mode of commuting. The rooms and food was nice.. the only problem was the Rocky beach..having a private beach didn't matter as we couldn't enjoy much on the beach.. rest all was good!!

This hotel is truly ranked number 1 in trip advisor. rooms are good, staff is excellent and the best part is there beach side yummy breakfast. The only complaint I had was regarding air conditioning. They need to improve on it as single air conditioner for a villa is not sufficient.

Lovely bungalow, bed was a bit small and a luggage rack or something would of been very useful. A few amenitiies in the bathroom would be nice. The pool was really nice and the way they set up the beach front at nice with all the little candles and lights is lovely. Breakfast is nice, I like the idea of... More

We spent an all too short vacation here in Dec 2014. We booked a cottage with 2 bedrooms and it was very lovely...clean, spacious, comfortable. The property is large you are just a few steps away from the beach! Bathrooms came with cold showers, but that was perfectly comfortable. The pool was a hit with our children, as was the... More

Desa Dunia is by far the best place to stay as far as we were concerned on Gili T. We had a great time! Its far enough away from the main strip that you can walk or ride in a short time. The resort is really unique, beautiful and the staff are great!!!!!! We had so much fun on Gili... More

If we had to choose one single word to describe the Desa Dunia Beda resort, we would certainly answer: paradisical! We spent 3 days over there and completely recommend it. A 25-minute walk separates the property from the main street with bars and restaurants. It is nothing compared to its perfect location. Indeed, the Desa Dunia Beda resort is in... More

I just love that part of Gili Trawangan, and its peace... always enjoying the bumpy Dokar ride, to the Sunset side, that brings me back to magical childhood memories. The joglo I stayed in (as the others) is a trip in itself, back in time. the Grilled Sefood bar on the beach is just what I needed, while enjoying yet... More
