Based in the North of the island, Alam Gili is a really friendly and welcoming hotel on the beachfront. We asked for the Duyung room (the mermaid room) which was spectacular: the private veranda was enormous and the staff kindly bought us our breakfast every morning to enjoy up there in the warm morning breeze. The breakfast was really good, in fact the best I had during our trip – the pancakes are recommended!
The room itself was clean and comfortable in traditional Indonesian style and whilst the bathroom was a little basic (oh and evening lighting and only one small mirror can make things interesting!), it was the little touches by the hotel that we really appreciated: Each evening the staff bought a couple of mosquito coils up to the room and our four poster bed had a mossie net – have to say though, neither of us got bitten once during our four night stay. As well as towels, we were provided with sarongs. And you can fill up water bottles half price from the hotel.
There seemed to be enough sun loungers on the beach and the staff are close by if you need a cool beer. The beach itself has washed up coral so it’s advised to take jelly shoes or flippers if you are snorkelling- and get out first thing in the morning before the tide goes out.
All of the staff were really attentive but not intrusive and we enjoyed our meal at the hotel on our first evening. We ventured further south on other evenings where the meals were not as good. It’s much quieter in the north of the island and in fact we went for a walk around the whole island one day hardly encountering anybody else in the North. You are also located at the right end of the island to see the sunset over Bali…walk along the beach front with a can or two of Bintang and settle in to see the sun go down.
We will have everlasting memories of our time enjoying Gili T from the indulgent surroundings of our huge veranda at Gili Alam!
