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

I spent 2 weeks at Banana with a friend and it was a really good choice. The cottages are well maintained with a small banana plantation between the individual cottages. It's pretty basic but this is reflected in the price. The breakfasts (included in the room price) were superb and they have a shop onsite that has anything you need.... More

We stayed here in 2012 and it was lovely! The cottages were nearby the sea. The bathroom was Well designed and in the open air. The rooms were Beautifull and clean. Outside there was Nice place to sit and relax. Breakfast was served at the sea. Top!

- Beautiful, spacious bungalow with nicely tiled bathroom. - Only fan rooms available here, but you get one rotating one on the ceiling and a stand up one you can put right in front of the bed. It felt as good as A/C to us. - Huge terrace in front with a large day bed, hammock, 2 chairs, a table... More

We arrived at Gili Air one day earlier than planned but could not stay at Gili Air Bungalows where we had reserved accommodation for the rest of our stay. So we had to find a place to stay for one night, and as Banana Cottages was close by to our next accommodation and looked like a nice place we decided... More

The cottages are wonderful: very clean, well maintained, outdoor shower, nice breakfast and very friendly staff! It was the best place on my whole trip. Everything was great! It has also a little shop included. We also got the best prices for our bycicles we rent and also for our return ticket by speedboat. Highly recommendable!

We relocated from Demi Homestay because it was a little further from where we wanted to be and Banana Cottages offered air conditioning, hot water, mosquito net and location for $35 which was one of the cheapest on the island. I really enjoyed the breakfast and the friendly staff, we hired bikes and snorkeling equipment from them for a good... More

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
