We stayed there for a week and had a lovely time, the staff were very friendly, the breakfast was good and the overall service was great. We were very close to the beach, could hire snorkelling gear and bikes. It is situated in a lovely leafy area. We had the shower outside, which was really nice and refreshing. The only... More

We walked from the harbour through the island and checked out a few places on the way. We stopped at banana cottages and decided to stay there. The rate was really cheap (280'000). The room was really dirty and the bathroom smelled of mold. Also the water comes from the ocean! I wouldn't recommend to stay at this place since... More

This is definitely the best place to stay if you want to balance budget, comfort and beach proximity. Also the staff was very kind and forthcoming and the breakfast was great compared to others on our trip. The restaurant offers fresh fish of the day. You can book different tours, such as Rinjani Trekking, Lombok Day Trip or Snorkeling with... More

He shouted me out, saying i could leave if i don't agree. Afterward, he turned around and turned back running to me with the... More

The cottages are really nice and clean. We had a cheap cottage with fan and just cold water but it was really great. We got towels and toilet paper for free. They cleaned our room every day. The bungalows are in a kind of garden with a lot of nice palmtrees and other plants. The breakfast was the best on... More

This review is long overdue. We stayed over Chinese new year in February 2014. After searching through our overnight options online, we decided to stay at the Banana Cottages for our three nights on Gili Air. It was a fabulous choice! Great price (somewhere in the realm of $26/night after negotiating), generous and tasty breakfasts, strong coffee, well tended garden,... More

The rooms are very nice and clean with a lot of furniture and great bed. Rooms cleaned every day! Relaxing in a hammock in a wonderful tropical garden. The staff is very friendly and the food very tasty.

Situated 50m from the beach, and 20min walk from the harbour on the sunset side of the island. Bungalows are clean and situated in a nice tropical garden. The place is very quiet during the day and also during the night. Bed is comfy, and the two fans in the standard room provide enough breeze to cool you down at... More
