Biba Beach was an excellent choice for us -- the location, the rooms (we had the superior rooms), the service, the breakfasts -- we had a wonderful vacation here! We were greeted at check in with wonderful fruit drinks. We had breakfast sitting at the beach pagoda -- with fresh watermelon juice.The staff were very friendly and helpful.

A friend and I enjoyed a lovely stay at Biba Beach while our husbands were surfing. It was exactly what we were looking for. First off, the location is great. You're just a short 5 or 10 minute walk from most bars and restaurants, but it's far enough north so you're out of the fray. It was always quiet at... More

Charming resort just in front of the ocean with a fantastic italian restaurant. The owners are Italian and the food reflects this perfectly. The included breakfast is very good and refined. There is no meat but the quality and the just right balance of the breakfast was very much appreciated. Great tomato and onion omelettes and a beautiful fresh fruit... More

Our stay at Gili Air was awesome and that was due to the fantastic room we had at Biba Beach Bungalows. The room was nice and clean when we came, and it was cleaned every morning after we left the room. The breakfast included was the best we ran across in a whole month in Bali & Lombok. The location...

I stayed two nights in Biba Beach. Location is perfect, just cross the small road and you are on the beach. Room was clean, spacious and had all the things you need (airconditioning, warm water, a safe to store valuable things). Breakfast is good! You can have it on your own veranda, or have it at the beach. Staff was... More

The location is perfect: just in front of the best snorkeling place, just outside the busy ends of Gili Air, but close to everything you want. The Biba Beach Village is very well maintained. Well kept gardens en really clean and comfortable bungalows. And also the restaurant deserves credits: the homemade bread for breakfast is delicious, as well as their... More

We paid more for this room than for any other in our 15 week holiday (730,000IDR per night). Was it worth it? Probably not BUT it was a beautiful room with a great balcony, extremely nice staff and a lovely restaurant day area on the waterfront. The boys never stopped working. They were always sweeping, raking, tidying - doing something... More

My wife and I stayed at Biba Beach for 5 nights and we really enjoyed the experience. We stayed in a comfortable bungalow with the sound of the sea within earshot. Each bungalow has its own veranda and it's a really nice spot to have breakfast or sit around relaxing in the evening. Biba also has a restaurant which operates... More

We stayed here for three nights and somewhat enjoyed our time. The owner Claudio was very cold when we arrived which was a downer since we were so excited to be there. He almost seemed bothered to check us in. We payed for a room with a/c, hot water, fridge and safe. The a/c did not work at all! You... More

Beautiful resort in the best part of the island, where the sea is ideal for snorkeling. The room was spacious, and clean, and comfortable... We stayed there for 10 days and we loved it. The breakfast was included and it was a lot and good. The restaurant was amazing, much better than a lot of places in Italy (we're from... More
