“Amazing place on a lovely clean beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

Sunset Gecko has everything we expected to get, clean beach, clean and airy room, helpful and friendly staff, great view, calm surrounding and snorkeling just steps away from the beach. Beside that, Gili Meno has always our favorite among the three Gilis, sleepy, calm and quite just the right place for our holiday escaping from the stressful jobs.

Room Tip: Beachfront #1 is our favorite room, it has the best sunset view, large balcony, sunny and airy room

Sunset Gecko is an amazing place...on a pristine beach, great snorkeling and diving steps away. You can sit all day in the beachfront cabanas sipping fresh juice and thinking you're in a dream. Great staff, great place, eco friendly, Western toilets, fresh water showers, everything exceptionally clean and well run. We stayed at two different rooms here -- the two bedroom beachfront bungalow, with its awesome balcony overlooking the beach, and one of the regular bedrooms in the three floor thatched building at the back which was about half the price. Both were great, depends on what you want to afford -- but either way, Sunset Gecko is a dream.

My sister and I spent one month travelling Bali and Lombok and our stay in Gili Meno at the sunset Gecko was our favorite part of the entire trip! First of all Gili Meno itself is heaven on earth- Just a tiny little island with some great beaches and a laid back vibe. we went over to Gili Trawangan for the day, an knew we had made the right choice to stay on Meno. The sunset Gecko is an eco-friendly place with outdoor showers that recycle the water- you're given natural soap on arrival. There is a snorkelling spot right out the front, and I spent many days simply floating along, following turtles and admiring the coral. The food served there is amazing, and we watched as fresh seafood was delivered, and we chose our meal for the night. The staff are amazingly friendly and became friends to us during our stay, some of us still keep in touch on facebook! I cannot say enough good things about this place- I absolutely loved it, and I know one day I will be going back!!!

Room Tip: Rooms in the shared house offer the best value.

Me and my partner stayed here for 5 nights in November, 2011 and had a wonderful time. The best thing about this place is that the staff are genuinely helpful and friendly. They try their best to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Hiro - san, the guy who runs this place is an angel. He makes sure you get whatever you ask for. It was very sweet of him to look around and find us a reliable and good dive shop when we wanted to do some diving. He knows the island very well and advised us on the good snorkelling spots too. The hotel is conveniently located and you get to see great sun sets from the restaurant area.

We definitely plan to stay there again. May the Gecko's protect you till then. :)

Love from India.

My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights in late June. It was a truly wonderful experience. The place is rustic with a real eco feel. We were in an A frame with an a shared outdoor bathroom. The room was small but cool enough with only windows and fan and a good mosquito net. The real charm of the place is sitting on the beach edge watching the madness on gili t whilst sipping on a fruit shake or beer and then going for a snorkel with turtles. The restuarant is great with the fish in particular being amzing.

A couple of side points - the beach is lots of shells so you'll need to walk south for a sandy beach. You'll need to take a horse cart when you arrive and the food is reasonable but not cheap and there are no atm's. Gili M gets a lot of press about mosquitos but to be honest there were less mosquitos than in a number of places in Thailand.

Enjoy!

I only intended to come to Gili Meno for a couple of days but ended up staying over a week. Arrived on the minute island alone having booked no accomodation. Went to numerous places in hunt of somewhere to stay, none looked great and all were overpriced so I decided to just wander around the island and if it became necessary to just kip in one of the many unused huts. In the end I wound up here and I count myself extremely fortunate. The staff were the friendliest of anywhere, the hut was comfortable, the atmosphere and company was perfect. Right by the beach (not that anywhere isn't on Gili Meno) and cheap beer and great food.
Of everywhere I have ever been, The Sunset Gecko, at sunset, in a pair of shorts and t-shirt, by the beach, with a beer in hand. This is my Utopia.

You will not regret coming here. Whether or not you give a flying... er... care about the environment. Oh, and Kecil Telor

Room Tip: Single rooms are cheap and practical.

I stayed here with my partner for 3 nights in the beach front 1 accommodation, the views are stunning, the rooms are simple only a bed, fan, shelf and mirror but you don't require anything else. The food is of good standard but it is served on Gili Meno time, but then you are on holiday so whats the rush. If you get a private boat from Gili T, tell the guys on the boat that you are staying at Sunset Gecko and they will drop you directly on the beach rather than at the jetty which is the otherside of the island also when you are relaxed and ready to leave, the staff can arrange for a boat to come and take to you Gili T rather than wait for the public boat. We will definately be returning the Gili Meno and Sunset Gecko.
