“Nice place for stay...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

It's just in the middle of gili trawangan... Near to the beach and near to the market.. I stayed for 3 days and 2 night.. We also do the diving that offer by bubble... Good instructor and very helpfull..
Wish to stay longer...you can ask for mineral water as much as you want by giving your own bottle.. They also provide all day meal..

I've been 2 times in the Gili island and been hosted in different places so that option is quite good in comparison with other home stays.
That's what you should expect in the Gili for a reasonable price (12 - 20 euros per room): simple room with a clean bed and a small bathroom with salty water, not really modern furniture, wi-fi, breakfast included and sometimes swimmingpool.

Big bubble dive has a great aftmosphere, they offer diving courses and the swimmingpool and the terrace in front of each bungalow are a plus. The location in front of the beach and in the main path is something to appreciate.

I stayed at Big Bubble Dive in end May/early June in 2013. Shifted here after staying in another budget resort earlier and found the other one away from action and not too clean. Big Bubble is a great place to stay with lovely bungalows. The location is great though not so if you want to stay at a quiet place. I did 2 open dives with the instructors and found them super friendly. Love Victor and -. The later was our instructor for the first dive. I would definitely stay here again but would advise only people interested in diving to stay here as the atmosphere is more fun if you dive. Also the breakfast was basic but nice. If you want a more elaborate one, most cafes are a walk away.

Room Tip: Chose a room closer to the reception to get wifi connectivity.

We booked for 4 nights but ended up extending as we loved it so much. We needed to unwind from all the hassle and kuta buzz so we weren't part of the diving crew but they seemed to be very popular. Bungalow was great, huge comfi king size bed, ensuite, free towels, airconditioning, a little front patio with large cushions as private chill out area and it got cleaned every day. Expect eggs and/or fruit for breakfast (nothing special) but they serve great lunch and dinner dishes. Location is right in the middle of the main road, bike rental right outside your doorstep (about $2,50 per bike for the day). The swimming pool is small but clean, refreshing and a luxury for backpackers :)

Just happened across this bungalow as some friends we met on the fastboat were staying there. They let us have three people instead of two for the same fee as long as we only had two breakfasts. The fan in the room did not work very well, and if you open the windows for circulation, things will definitely climb or fly on in as there are no screens. Shower was a bit more than a cold trickle, the bathroom was quite grimy overall, but we did not spend a lot of time in the room, so it was fine for us! Nice daybeds/cushions on the deck as well. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. We only did one dive with them, but the dive master, Emma, that came with us was very friendly and helpful as we are new to diving. Breakfast has only three choices; banana pancakes, eggs and toast or fruit salad, but all three are amazing,you order it fresh and it can be any time of the day, a real bonus compared to 2 hr old fried eggs on a buffet that ends by 10:00am. This way, if you dive in the morning, you can eat when you come back! Nice pool and plenty of lounging space, the bar should open earlier though!! Very close to everything you want in Gili T, and they take CreditCards, but no Amex. They offer three dives a day and are accomodating for night dives if you want as well!

Room Tip: If you are single or a couple, pick the BB bungalows, they have one king bed and the deck has a much...

Did my diving certificates at big bubble and stayed there for quite a while. Didn't live there but saw the rooms which looked really clean n good. All the teachers where extremely good n seemed to be enjoying it as much as the costumers. I absolutely loved the local staff who where very helpful and so nice! Even tho gili t is really small, big bubble was at a great location. They have a good pool to chill out in aftr diving, and a bingtang from bb bar seals the deal.
