“Gili Villas. Great spot in town. Loved it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2008

We were coming over from Bali for a weekend in the Gilis. Neither my partner or I had been to Trawangan before. We fell in love with this place.

Location: In town but slighly (2 short blocks) from the noise of the main strip--which is not much noise since there are no motorized vehicles here.

Accomodations: Very nice and very pleasing esthetically. Great Bedrooms and modern fresh water bathrooms (a rarity on Gili T); private swimming pool (loved it); lovely open living room/dining room/kitchen.

Each villa as 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms plus living area with kitchen

Great for a romantic or friends getaway!

Staff: Very accomodating. They will bring you food. Run errands for you. Make recommendations on anything you need to do.

Highly recommended.

  • Liked — Niceness of the villa--great facilities
  • Disliked — I wish it were on the water but appreciate why its not...

It would be great to see some photos of the villas and of Gili Trawangan posted on the website for other travellers to see. No matter how good or bad the review, photos really help give travellers and holiday makers a better perspective of where they´re going. Thanks.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2008

Really gorgeous villas. It isnt on the main strip where the restaurants / bars are, but that's a good thing coz you dont get thumping music at 2am. it's still close to the action though, and walking to dinner takes 3-5min. Alternatively the really attentive butler boys will be happy to get take-out for you and deliver to your doorstep.

Each villa has its own pool, which was great for skinny-dipping any time of the day. Every aspect of this place was great, and the initial worry of not being right in front of the beach was put to rest becoz Gili villas is a 3min walk to the really good beaches. And they are gorgeous those beaches.. Going off on a bit of a tangent, i'd say to privately hire a boat and a guide for a day and he'll take you around the Gilis and the best snorkel spots, just your group.. My partner and i can both dive but the snorkelling in the Gilis was v good and we couldnt even be bothered to dive..

Despite being a tad expensive (USD220) for this part of the world, i would absolutely go back to stay at Gili Villas.

  • Liked — the layout and the stylish mix of contemporary and indonesian architecture
  • Disliked — had to walk through some mildly dumpy areas to get to the beach/restaurants

Gili T has always been a backpacker destination and in the past I have always found the accomodation limited to dive shop bungalows. This trip I wanted to try some of the new villas being built on the island, having passed to the age were comfort is primary.
These villas were a revelation. Not five star, but certainly above average. Set back 100 metres from the main area, the added privacy was a bonus, as was the space and layout.
No in villa food service, but not an issue as Gili T has so many choices of restaurant.
Happy to recommend this business.

  • Liked — privacy, where most accomoadtion on the island is a bit of a 'fish bowl'
  • Disliked — for what was being offered, nothing to which I objected.
