Stayed for 2 weeks in July and loved the place. The food in the restaurant is really good; a lot of options also for a vegetarian like myself. The staff is super friendly and the ocean bright blue and only a few meters away. They offer a bunch of different room options, we picked a budget alternative and found it... More

Stayed at matahari for 2weeks. The breakfast was ok but the rest was top notch. Clean rooms, super friendly staff and lime/lemon juice to die for. The prices are lower than the neighbouring resorts and owned by three siblings native to the island. Matahari sits on the chilled out side of the island faceing the sunset and if you care... More

The room was pretty moderate. Found couple spiders from the room and a cockroach from the toilet but it wasn't too dirty. Also saw the biggest spider I've ever seen on wild on top of the neighbours door and a huge lizzard under one of the bungalows. Toilet didn't have a roof so a lot of mosquitos there. No hot... More

We were approached after getting off at the harbour. We were given a bungalow which consisted of a dirty fan, a double bed and an outdoor shower. Breakfast was included however was very basic - tea & coffee is made for you so you need to tell them how you like it or else you will need them to make... More

This resort is on Sunset Beach and relatively basic. 26B, the room we have is clean and new, bed a little hard and only cold water shower. The room has air conditioning and for IRP500 000 per night is relatively good value. The resort is full and mostly young people. Price includes a basic breakfast and the food otherwise is... More

I travelled to Gili Air to check it out as I didn't manage to get to this island when visiting Gili Meno. Reading that the west side of Air was more quite than the east side I decided to check out the bungalows without making a reservation. My first choice after research was Matahari but after I arrived decided to... More

Matahari is on the other side of the island from the boat landing and main tourist "stuff." This is the best thing about it. The beach in front of matahari is peaceful and gorgeous. No cement retaining wall like on the east side of the island. Food here is really good and cheap. Restaurant has terrible service even for Indonesia,... More

These bungalows are very basic. Just a bed and a fan and a bathroom. The draw is the beachfront. You can literally spend an entire day lounging on the thatch roof raised platforms, ordering food when you're hungry, beer when you're thirsty, taking a dip when you're hot. It's the perfect location for watching sunset, which is a major event... More
