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

Really good location, friendly staff and owner. There are fan bungalows and new AC villas/bungalows. Cleaned every day, breakfast included and there is also laundry facility. We stayed there 4 nights then went to senggigi and got back to the same place a few days after. We checked many places around and banana cottages/villas are cheap and not as dated... More

The Banana cottages is a brand new collection of small cottages located on the east side of Gili Air. The cottages are not located on the beach but about 80m inland. When coming from the boat terminal, continue past "Biba" accomodation and follow the tall sign to the left. When we visited, construction was still going on (but we suspect... More
