“5 hours from Jakarta 5 mins to paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

I take vacation in November'13 (25-29) with my wife and 2 sons (7& 4 yo), prior to stay, we booked the hotel directly from Jo, she booked us accommodation from Praya airport Lombok to Hotel in Gili Trawangan (+-2 Hours by car, 10 mins speed boat), unfortunately Jo is leaving to England, so we couldn't thank her personally for arranging everything and many info's about gilis.
The Hotel is worth 5 stars from tripadvisor, only 5 mins walking from harbor/ jetty, 5 mins from art market, located not in the main street and will not be disturbed by parties (Monday & Wed at diff places), my sons loved the pool so much (preferred the pool instead of the the beaches---ouch), breakfast was superior you got options of toast and eggs (whatever served you chose) or pancakes (loved the banana one), juices, fruits, and option between Lombok Coffee or tea, it's all free. you can also have breakfast in the pool area.
the room is superb, the room like a cottage, we got beds as we arranged previously, with King-size bed and one single bed, the place is spacious, bathroom is located below and bedroom located upstairs, you will also got a nice terrace balcony in front, where you can spent your lazy time there.
Service also great the staff would provide towels or hot water whenever you asked (and in a minute they will come and serves you), they also offered us dvds (rooms had a flat tv with cables and dvd player) in case you/kids were bored or waiting the rain to stops. it could be better if the hotel could provide phone to reception for lazy people like me, but it's not a big problem anyway. and if you get lucky you can borrow marta's snorkeling gears (only limited gears hopefully they can provide more in the future). the staff would help you to rent some bikes if you asked, they will also explained anything about Gili Trawangan, and you will also get a Gili Trawangan's map and best spot they have (meals, art market, diving & Snorkeling spots, tips, etc) once you arrived at your room.
bottom line it's near perfection holiday for us and staying at Martas will make it perfect holiday

My wife and I began a love affair with Marta,four years ago and have stayed with friends and family on the various trips. Conveniently located just a short walk from the beach and the bustling main strip, it is positioned in a tranquil and well landscaped position offering a glistening pool and shaded lanais to sit and read and relax. Jo and Marta are brilliant hosts and a wealth of local info not just on Gili Trawangan but further afield and their staff are very friendly and helpful. Martas is the ideal place to stay in The Gilis and we look forward to our next stay

Room Tip: rooms opposite reception and pool would be my pick

We loved Martas so much when we visited in September 2012, we decided to come back on our honeymoon this year, and we enjoyed it just as much the second time around! We were made so welcome from the very beginning. The rooms are large and spacious and breakfast is generous and tasty. The location is great, just off the main road so it's quieter. But the main thing is the friendliness and attention to detail of the staff and Joanna the owner, for whom nothing is too much trouble. I have already recommended Martas to 2 friends, and both of them loved it too. Amazing value for money, you won't be disappointed.

We loved our week at Martas! The rooms were big and the beds were comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and included. This is the perfect place for a family. The pool offered a welcome break from the beach each afternoon. It's nice and quiet and located away from the busy part of the island. They helped us organize a snorkeling trip and it was a wonderful day! Joanna and Marta are excellent hosts and we would highly recommend their hotel!

We stayed here for four nights and Joanna was incredibly helpful both while we were there and by email in advance.

We were met from the boat and walked to the hotel by a member of staff. The hotel is set a five minute walk back from the main street but still near all the beach-front restaurants and bars.

Breakfast is lovely - choice of juice, choice of main plus tea/coffee and fresh tropical fruit - and you can eat on your own terrace overlooking the pool. Pool is really nice when quiet but unfortunately we overlapped with a fair few families (maybe it was October half term?) and so it was generally full of small screaming children. We tended to go to the beach for some peace!

Lovely Indonesian warung in the village behind the hotel, and Joanna is great for food and entertainment recommendations. Thanks for a great stay!

My new wife and I spent 4 wonderful days at Martas in mid/late September. Extremely friendly staff and Joanna was a brilliant host. The accommodation was extremely good value, free breakfast was excellent and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Gili T. Great location, just a bit off the main track too.

I chose this guesthouse because of the good reviews in tripadvisor
and I'm glad I do the right thing.
Joanna was really helpful with our booking inquiry.

At first, we had a little bit difficulty to find this hotel
because the staffs didn't pick up the phone.
But after 10-15minutes, I could contact them and they picked us up in the port.
The hotel is nice and the room is big also.
Breakfast also good.
\With the price they offer,
me and my friends agree that it's a great value to stay.
We love it!
