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

My husband and I were feeling a little "travel weary" and decided to treat ourselves and stay somewhere nice. Scallywags Mango Retreat was the perfect choice! Beautiful, immaculate rooms with awesome outdoor bathrooms; tranquil, private pool area; great beach set-up; delicious, plentiful breakfast buffet; and kind and attentive staff. The only hard part was leaving!

Couldn't fault this super place with its fantastic staff all under the careful and competent watch of Mira who was marvellous. Nothing was too much trouble and my husband now wants an outside bathroom at home - somehow I don't think so !!! Will definitely recommend it to friends and family

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days at Scallywags Mango Retreat, nothing is too far in Gili Air, I carried my 2 year old everywhere. It was quiet, the rooms were clean, private and lovely. The alfresco bathrooms were stylish and the complimentary bathroom products were minty. The pool was refreshing our kids lived in the pool and at first we... More

We were quite excited with our room in the scallywags resort. It looks great and the room seems modern with everything you could wish for. Only the location is a bit of a walk from the mail street. However, when we came home our first evening we found two 8cm cockroaches on the floor. We know ti's Indonesia and it... More

We had just stayed at the Trawangan resort which we couldnt fault. The same kind of goes for this place, except that it wasnt at the water. The restaurant ( which you had to walk 10 mins too) was at the beach. It was lovely. and busy. Funny, it was never ready for breakfast at 7am like Trawangan was. The... More

If you can afford it don't waste your money elsewhere! We walked around the whole island and realised that the beaches on Air are not that great, the best bit is where Scallywags beach restaurant is. If you stay at Mango you get a free sun lounge. Everything else is great as other people wrote.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in late September 2013. We read lots of good reviews about them, so booked them via email. They were very helpful and always replied straight away, and easily assisted us with booking our fast boat transfer to and from the island. The retreat is about a 5 min walk from the... More

Very high standard for this island. We stayed at the Mango retreat for the first three days on Gili Air. We then moved to another hotel that is/was ranked higher here on Tripadvisor and were so disappointed that we cancelled after two days and moved back to Scallywags but this time we stayed at the Smuglers Hideaway for four days....
