We stayed at Biba Beach for a few days in August, in one of the superior bungalows. The room was ok, quite dark but spacious. It's a bit dated now, but perfectly comfortable. The area outside the bungalow is lovely, you have a nice terrace area with seating which is fab to sit outside in. The only real problem we... More

We (my wife & I) stayed at Biba Beach for 2 nights in late July, 2015. The owner Claudio and his wife were most accommodating, and made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. A charming Italian couple who have been on the island for 7 years, which was long before it became the tourist attraction it... More

This hotel is excellent in all respects. The staff is very service minded, serious and friendly. The rooms are located in bungalows in local architectural style of high standard, with aircon, comfortable beds with mosquito net, lots of space and nice sitting areas on the porch. The hotel has a beach of its own at one of the best snorkling... More

EXCEPTIONAL! Worth making a reservation to pick your table for a romantic evening. This is a five star dinner at low cost Bali prices. We had the gnocchi (portobello and super biba seafood) and loved every last drop. This is a must eat place while visiting Gili Air.

We came for dinner with low expectations, because we live in Little Italy in Melbourne, and are spoiled with eating great authentic Italian food all the time! And to be honest, the food on the Gili Islands had not been great so far. But we were blown away by Biba! Not only was everything delicious, but totally authentic Italian food.... More

We stayed in one of the superior rooms. It was spacious, and had a veranda overlooking the pretty garden. The restaurant is one of the best we went to on our whole trip. Gorgeous food, friendly staff, and a beautiful location overlooking the sea. Breakfast here was also very tasty and generous. There are a LOT of cats around. Now,... More

Went to the restaurant tonight with my husband and four year old son. By far the best cuisine I have experienced on the island. The bruschetta was stunning and amazing value and the lime and ginger jumbo king prawns were to die for. This is as fine dining as Gili air gets but they were totally relaxed to cope with... More

We stayed at Biba for 3 nights, the first night we took the cheapest accomodation available but we decided to upgrade for the remaining nights as the first room had a very bad, mold-like smell. The bigger room was better, but unfortunately not fully free of mold-smell. Furthermore, there are at least 20 cats walking around this property, also occupying... More

Some of what some of the previous reviewers has said is true, but for the price, we thought the place was fantastic. There were cats, but they were cute, and the boys did come a bit early to clean the room, and the ac wasn't great...but we loved the location, being away from the hub-bub of the more crowded section...

loved it there. very clean, friendly staff, best breakfast! you can stay at the privat beach area, have breakfast (great coffe!) and italian dinner here and you are just a little bit further away from the harbor to enjoy a little less touristy action and a little bit more relaxation..
