I stayed together with a friend in one of the tangga bungalows. Really nice setup. Hammock, "outdoor" bathroom/no roof, nice bed and very very quiet. Location is excellent and only a very short walk to the beach. Price is unbeatable. Also reef with lots of turtles right in front Definitely the right place to relaxe!!!

I guess it is a good value since it is cheap and offer decent bungalows, but we had to check out early as the bed was lumpy and very hard. Also my pillow was very musty. So not a good night experience. There was quite a gap between the bed and the wall, so we couldn't lean on the wall... More

In my opinion, Tangga Bungalows is the best place to stay on Gili Air. We stayed there for 5 nights and really enjoyed the nice and calm atmosphere. The bungalows are surrounded by a beautiful garden. Every single Bungalow is just amazing. I've already been traveling for 3 months but I've never seen such nice bungalows for a price like... More

We stayed with a few friends ( 4, then 2) in this incredibly beautiful and peaceful place. Whilst travelling for 3 months through Asia, we saw a lot of different accommodation, ranging from awful to perfect, but this place is just special! Alongside all the positive stuff mentioned in the other reviews, the most beautiful aspect is the familiar atmosphere.... More

We were wandering around the island in search of a nice accommodation. Suddenly we met a guy on his bicycle inviting us to see his bungalows. He appeared out of nowhere so we took it as a good sign and we really were pleasantly surprised. Huge bungalows made of wood in the middle of big green garden. Lot of space,... More

This is a lovely place where to stay. Peter, Ika and Seti are a beautiful family, sending good vibes all around them and creating a peaceful atmosphere where to relax and enjoy the beauty of this tiny island (and life in general). The bungalows are beautiful, super clean and a really good value for money. And the garden is really... More

This is a great place to stay. There are currently only 4 bungalows set in a huge, beautiful garden. Its in a quiet location reached by a private lane way from the beach. There are 2 bungalows set high in the trees and 2 more standard type bungalows. Each bungalow has large beds with mosquito nets, nice bamboo furniture, lamp... More

The place looks nice and the the garden is very inviting BUT their booking system sucks. A few people wrote about it already so when I booked, we made sure to call two days before arriving to confirm. We asked our hotel in Ubud to do so, in Indonesian, to avoid any miscommunication. That wasn't enough...when we rocked up there... More

Dear Jerome. I'm really sorry for your unlucky inconveniences. Seti and Ika are usually Mr and Mrs Sunshine and try to do their very best to accommodate. And I sincerely apologize on their behalf for your unfortunate experience. When I receive inquiries to TB:s Facebook I do my best to stress that it's a reservation (not a booking) you make,... More

I have spent 2 nights in tangga bungalows, it was everything I was looking for, quiet, fresh and green. The bungalows themselves are very confortable and the breakfast has the best pancakes I've had in Indonesia. Definetly my place to stay whenever I go back to Gili Air

I should say up front that we did not stay here but my review intends to explain why. The day prior to arriving at Gili Air my partner messaged the facebook page asking if there was any available rooms, the owner who wasn't in Indo wrote back swiftly saying he was sure there would be a room available however we...

Thank you for being so clear with the fact that you didn't actually stay in TB. Obviously we can't meet everybody's expectations, so fortunately there are many other nice accommodations on the island, which my Indonesian (sad if that's an issue) manager always assists with finding (distant-gazed or not) if TB is not satisfactory or fully booked.
