Stayed here end November 2014 backpacking, so on a budget. Passed lots of expensive places walking from pier and finally stumbled upon this place after about 10 -15 minute walk. Up a small side road off the main path that goes around the edge of the island. Beautiful garden and lovely traditional style cottages with open air beautifully decorated bathrooms.... More

The usual Indonesian story of promised wifi, hot water etc and nothing actually works. Seeing as it rained quite a bit we spent quite a while in the rooms and would have really appreciated a hot shower. They just said it takes time as the tank has been off a while. We stayed 4 days and still no hot water!!... More

Banana Cottages really made our stay on Gili Air worthwile!!! TOP accomodation for a budget price of Rps 200.ooo per night per bungalow (walk-in rate). We didn't book anything and just walked around, luckily some of the staff invited us to have a look. The neatly and fully developped lush garden, so basically our porch, is full of banana and...

My Girlfriend and I stayed at Banana Cottage, and we regret it deeply. At first glance, we thought it was a very nice place to stay. A porch/terrace with a hammock and outdoor bed with a mosquito net, and a nice little room with A/C. Breakfast included and wifi everywhere (they said). Wifi couldn't be reached. Breakfast was mediocre. Unfortunately... More

My friend and i stayed in the last bungalow of the cottage. Our plan was to spend 3 nights, but the bedbugs and the rudeness of the manager ruined our stay and we left much earlier. On our first night, the Wi-Fi was not working on our room and I decide to talk in private to Erwin, the manager. I... More

We initially booked to stay for 4 nights, ended up staying for 8 and didn't want to leave. After a week on gili T which we found to be too busy and dirty we returned to banana cottages for a further 5 nights and to our surprise back in our original room. The owner Irwin is a top guy along... More

We have found this place totally by chance while wondering in Gili Air with our loaded backpacks and we loved it. We were really satisfied with our 7 nights stay. Our cottage was spacious enough. The bed was comfy and we had a large wardrobe. The open air bathroom was really nice and spacious again. Our cottage didn't have hot... More

We returned from Gili Air and Banana Cottages this morning and wanted to write a review before we forgot as these guys really deserve it. It took about 15 minutes to walk from the main pier if you head north. The cottages don’t have a sea view but everything else more than makes up for that. They are set amongst... More

While I was diving in Tulumben my friend went ahead of me and found these lovely little cottages at the end of the road. For 20,000 Rp. per person I grabbed a pony cart to the bungalows from the ferry dock. On arrival the family was welcoming and spoke good English. Although my friend was on the beach, I settled...

We stayed for six nights in a very lovely and spacious aircon banana villa. The guys running this place are very kind and helpfull. The place is quite new and modern. Our bungalow had a big veranda with a sitting area, a hammock and even a big daybed with mosquito net. There is a nice mosaic pattern on the veranda... More
