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...

We stayed at Biba for our honeymoon while traveling around Indonesia. The staff and owners are so lovely, you can just tell they care so much. The rooms are great, with a seating area outside. From the breakfast to evening meals the food is phenomenal. We have traveled around Italy & the food is just spot on (maybe even better)... More
