This place was certainly a highlight of our trip. We stayed in a joglo villa and were impressed with the room and structure of the unit. The pool is really nice and usually empty. We arranged a "romantic dinner" in the gazebo and got just that. The lobster was the best I've ever had. The wifi doesn't work at all... More

Beautiful, tranquil location on the north coast of the island, far away from the crowds around the harbour but not too far, if you fancy a night in town. Bungalows are beautiful, there is a great choice of food, the beach and pool are lovely, staff are attentive but not overbearing. Pick your time to snorkel carefully - at low... More

We rented the 2 bedroom family Joglo which had 2 4 poster beds with mosquito nets & 2 bathrooms and the villa was very authentic and charming. The combination of air conditioners and fans kept the whole villa cool. Whilst there is no hot water or hairdryers, it was no issue for our enjoyment at all. We ate dinner at... More

A lovely room with a spacious outdoor bathroom. Good mosquito net. Right on the beach. The food was good for dinner; the included breakfast was decent. This is not a great location to swim or snorkel from. We were just here for one night and didn't explore other snorkel options. Gili Trawangan is very busy and touristy and we picked... More
