We spent two wonderful nights at Island View in the standard (fan) rooms. We visited in the rainy season, so to escape the heat and humidity, we spent much of our days in the beach huts at their restaurant. The chef prepares delicious traditional Sasak food, such as urap-urap and olah-olah. As vegans, we found more options on their menu... More

It is on one of the prettiest part of beach on the island, if not the prettiest, with views of spectacular sunsets. It is also on one of the most secluded and quiet parts of the beach. Yet it is just a 20 min walk from the restaurant stretch. The resort is laid out nicely and has a very warm... More

After several visits to Gili Trawangan we decided to try Gili Air which we summed up as a toned down version of its larger cousin but with more bars and restaurants than we had expected which was a positive.Island View Bungalows are peaceful, private, clean and more than adequate for a relaxing and value for money beach holiday. The bar... More

My wife and I stayed five nights here in August 2013 in one of the superior rooms (air con). It is the remotest accomodation on Gili Air in terms of proximity to the busy East side of the island and in terms of isolation from other properties which is good or bad depending on what you're looking for. If you... More

Ahh, what to do today? Lounge on the beach, or in the shade of a bamboo hut, sipping a freshly plucked coconut? Perch at the bar & swap jokes & stories with friendly Abu, Budi, Amit and crew? Get a massage in my bungalow? Do some yoga in the lush, beautifully groomed garden? Stroll/jog/cycle the whole 5km around the island?... More

We chose to stay here because we wanted a secluded place....and we got what we wanted!!This lovely but far restaurant/bungalows is half hour walking from the harbor, where all the nice restaurants and bars are, and at night time don't think to get a cab...because there even aren't scooters here, the only transports are the horse car,as they call them,...

We stayed at Island View Bungalows for four days before transferring closer to 'town' in Gili Air to do our diving. This is the cutest little oasis ever! It is basic though, with fresh but cold showers. There are a couple of more modern bungalows with air-conditioning. We stayed in the standard lumbung with fan and did, at times, get... More

We arrived to island view by horse carriage from the port because it is a bit to far to walk. Friendly staff, great food, and the perfect setting for a quiet holiday. Nice gazebos on the beach, and beautiful sunset. The rooms were big, clean and with a nice outdoor/open air bathroom. The perfect place for a relaxing holiday, would... More

We booked this in Australia and didn't have any expectations. It was amazing! The staff are lovely, the chalet villas nice and the location AMAZING! Right on the beach, you are on the quieter side of the island with amazing views. This is a pocket of paradise. We loved it!!!
