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

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.

Bungallows are wonderful, haven't seen anything like that on the whole island. Built with great attention to details totally from bamboo, giving you very "ecological" and "earthy" feel - just the one you expect from Gili. Owners are really nice, trying their best to do everything to make you happy. Overall that's much more than you can expect for price... More

Hello dear traveler. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Tangga Bungalows. I hereby take the opportunity again to try to clarify what might be perceived as a communicational problem between me (the investing owner), and the hosting family who runs our place. There is no internet in TB, and Seti and Ika haven't got any internet accounts whatsoever.... More

We stayed here for 4 nights here and loved it. The bungalows are lovely- very clean and spacious with great balconies to chill on. The cold-water shower is more of a tap but was very powerful and did the job. Breakfast was great- good juices on arrival too. We did have occasional visitors such as lizards and a cute ginger...

I stayed here for four nights with my husband and mother in-law. The bungalow was big, very clean and had a great feeling about it. Everything was spotless, and Seti was so sweet. Each morning as soon as she saw me relaxing on the porch she'd come by for our breakfast order. The location was also good--not too far from... More

Thanks for your kind and accurate review. And we're happy you felt good about your stay in spite the initial confusion you experienced. Sorry for that. Tangga Bungalows is run by locals with (yet) no deeper computer literacy. We have no web-site and no conventional booking system. We run it in a more simple and traditional way where random travelers... More

We were greeted by the local manager with a lovely: 'Hello brother, hello sister, welcome!' What better way to start our time at this amazing island. The bungalows are huge, quiet and just beautiful. We really enjoyed the outside matras and hammocks. Every morning we were asked what breakfast we wanted: Pancakes, toast or eggs. The bungalows are very close... More

What a wonderful place to stay. I have seen & stayed at many places over the past 4months of travelling & i must say this was my favorite. The wood & bamboo bungalows on stilts were so spacious, inviting & super clean. I fell right into the large comphy bed with a bunch of pillows without hesitation, as I have... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Tangga Bungalows embraces you with an enchanting atmosphere and an abundance of tranquility. Here you can nest secluded in a genuine and gentle hospitality, just a turtle-walk off (100 meters) the islands best snorkeling, and 200 meters from Gili Airs bar-promenade. Five houses, designed for laziness and comfort are ready to be your haven and home, maybe for longer than you planned. Tangga Bungalows is also the home of your local hosts Zeti, Ika and their daughter Sali. Hop off the boat, walk leisurely along the east side for 10 minutes. Accommodating locals and our sign will guide you right. The price is according to season and number of nights, but always fair and on the low side. ... more   less
