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..

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

Owners seem to be constatly having some project in the garden or kitchen -> well maintained place, great food - first room we stayed in... More

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...
