I had a really great stay at Gili Air Santay. The location was perfect, not right in the center but close to all the restaurants and bars. And also just a small walk from the yoga classes. I enjoyed a couple of great dinners at the restaurant. Also, the staff was really nice and very helpful. I would recommend this... More

I came to spend a couple of days on gili Air, and ended up to stay for over 10 days. Very quickly, Santai has become my base camp :-) They have a great menu, amasing thai food and local food (special mention for the vegetarian Pad thai). The owner is a true local, born in Gili, and you can feel... More

Traditional style bungalows in a pleasant coconut grove where you can get a feeling of how life could be in this paradise before tourism arrived. Very authentic and peaceful atmosphere. Comfortable rooms with bamboo furniture. The staff is absolutely friendly and welcoming. I love breakfast in front of the sea.

We stayed in this bungalow for 4 days and I have to say that everything was perfect. Well located and very clean. The service is very friendly and although breakfast is quite normal not a problem for me since you have several excellent restaurants in front. Good value for money. Would definitely recommend.

We spent 3 days in standards bungalows - which are very basic, equipped with fan and mosquito net. This is close to nature bungalow - be careful on lizards - you will find many of them not only around bungalow :) The price was not big so I have not expected anything more. There is very good restaurant in the... More

We didn't stay here, but my husband and I found this place for lunch. It was so good we went back again the next day for the exact same thing: Spicy Sasu Salad (long beans and tempeh), traditional home made Fish Curry, and the spicy Papaya Salad. YUM!!!! Don't miss it!

We booked the Villa for 2 weeks over Christmas. On seeing our Villa we extended our stay. Andy and Rosie do a geat job and enjoy it. She even lined up her car and driver for our trip to Lombock. Andy has a boat for fishing, fun and touring. Food is fabulous and many choices for breakfast.

i can recommend this place: - it´s simple, but relaxing - very nice owner! very helpful! - breakfast is very basic.. :( - nice beach directly in front of the restaurant, snorkeling possible - i would recommend to book an own hut, because the "double" hut has only "paper walls"..

We spent four nights at Gili Air Santay. The room was clean and basic, no A/C, but a fan and a nice porch for hanging out. What really made this place was the staff: Rosie is quite the friendly character, and the guys and gals working for her are all sweet and helpful. The FOOD is fabulous. If you opt... More
