The Scallywags Mango Retreat is set in the village on Gili Air, about 500m from the beach. It's paired with the Scallywags Beach Club, where you have breakfast and can spend the day on the sunbeds (pretty much our daily routine). At first we found it odd that it was in the village, and we looked at the other resorts... More

Scallywags Mango retreat , is located a 7 min walk from the beach and Scallywags Beach Club, which means you are not hearing the load music outside Ramadan. The rooms are great with all that you need and pool very refreshing. Mini bar prices are the same almost as the mini mart. Having just stayed 8 nights with friends ,... More

Found this place (mango motel) by chance but we were very glad we did! At 300000 Rp per night it was excellent value with air con, good furniture, nice bathroom and extremely clean and well looked after. Also TV, reasonable value laundry service and a great 'maxi' bar. Oh and two free water bottles a day. It was very quiet... More

Scallywags Mango is a great find in Gili Air. Very reasonable prices although it is a short walk from the main beach where the beach club is located. It is nearer tot he town center where there are local warungs with very good local food at very cheap prices. Scallywags Mango offers very well appointed rooms with good wifi, cable... More

Perfect intimate hideaway just short walk to the popular south beach. Quiet surroundings, friendly staff, great facilities and great value. Hard to go past. Would love to come back with friends and book out all the rooms.

Perfect little eco-resort on Gili Air. Peaceful setting, super clean rooms, comfortable beds, very friendly staff and just a quick walk to the beach. Great breakfast buffet too. Would definitely stay there again but for much longer :)

We had stayed closer to the beach for our first 3 nights, and then decided to switch to Scallywags... while it's off the beaten path, it was in a tranquil and serene environment. The rooms were super clean, comfortable bed with white sheets (when does that happen in the Gilis? Most have dark sheets to hide the stains and dirt).... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night. Our initial reaction walking into our room was 'Why didn't we book a longer stay?!' Our room had a private little garden at the front, sliding doors into the room and then a stunning outdoor bathroom. We were speechless at how lovely it was! I've read a few reviews on here... More

Hi, thanks for your heavenly review, yes one night is never enough! But there is alway next time. Gili Air is a beautiful island & Scallywags Mango Retreat is only a short walk away from the beach as you found out so don't let that you put you off staying with us. Inside the entrance there are only 6 retreat... More

What a lovely place. A friend recommended we changed our booking from Gili T to Gili Air a couple of weeks prior to the trip. We are so glad we did. Gili Air is not so much a party place but a lovely relaxing island with great beach food and hospitality. Scallywags was everything it was cracked up to be.... More

Dear Patrick, No shirt, no shoes, no problem! Yes that is our motto, why not when we're beach resorts. Thanks again for your great review, it does sound like you made the right choice between Gili Trawangan & Gili Air. Scallywags Mango Retreat is a little quiet peaceful haven not too far from the beach, just far enough to work... More
