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

Ive been meaning to review this hotel for a while since returning from a fabulous trip travelling around Indonesia... I can safely say this was the worst hotel Ive ever stayed in. In total we stayed for three nights, and in all honesty I couldn't wait to leave. The hotel itself is nice, it has seats overlooking the sea and... More

We came across Biba Beach while looking for a place to stay for 2 nights. The owners Claudio & Sabrina were very welcoming. We paid extra for a bungalow with hot water & fridge but really wasn't necessary., all rooms have a/c and fan. The bathroom was large and clean. We found our room to be very dark. The veranda...

I spent one week at Biba and left only because my vacation had ended! Biba offers very nice, inviting bungalows embedded in a beautiful garden and an excellent Italian restaurant where breakfast is served every morning. The bungalows are spacey, comfortable and very clean, I felt at home there! Claudio and Sabrina, the Italian owners, are as nice and friendly... More

Biba is in a great spot at the end of Gili Air's main drag so not subject to too much baseline, although the day times do have a techno beat that drifts into the bathrooms from elsewhere. The garden is beautiful and immaculate and the rooms are cleaned and debugged well every day but they are still bungalows so it... More

Service: Italian managers were a little slow to warm up but did improve, and had good advice when asked. Indo staff were a bit inefficient and slow, nothing some proper training couldn't fix (for example, writing out order items in full on pad - get a code!) They were also a little eager to clear table as we got up,... More

We mostly really enjoyed our time at biba beach. The owners and managers were lovely and we really liked the room with a great location. The service was excellent and we liked the restaurant for the most part. A couple of downsides for us; The nearby bars having Xmas eve dance/trance parties. These were extremely loud one night and went... More

This place is awesome!!! Good price, nice, clean and the breakfast delicioussss. Gili Air was the best place of all the places we visited in our trip through Asia. Indonesian people are the best maybe that's why it's kind of shocking to meet the owner as he doesn't smile as much as them. He gets better after a day though... More
