“Well located, comfortable rooms and lovely outdoor bathrooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We stayed here back in October for 4 nights, so a little while ago now. We thought 4 nights was a good amount of time to stay on Gilli T, in between a few other places we visited in Indonesia. We were very happy with the location, quiet enough but very easy walking distance to plenty of places to eat, little shops etc. We found the breakfast very tasty with the option to request the chef to cook up eggs, pancakes as required. The banana pancakes were especially good. The outdoor bathroom was a very nice touch and very private, with tropical plants around the shower. The pool area, though whilst not huge (everywhere on the Island had similar smallish pools, bar one or two larger resorts) was everything you needed to relax by, with plenty of shade and beds for everyone and also a more private pool area than many other resorts. We also did the boat trip to Gilli Air one day though the resort. The boat trip there was relatively calm, however coming back the wind had whipped up a bit of swell and the water was a bit too rough for my liking and the boat is quite small, though my husband was fine with it. Scallywags is very much recommended! Lovely trip.

We stayed at Scallywags on Gili T for 3 nights and had a fantastic time. In fact, Scallywags was among the best accommodation we stayed at during our trip to Indonesia.

Scallywags is ideally located, far enough from the madness of the harbour area but handily placed for good restaurants and beaches.

The rooms are a good size with contained bedrooms and nice outdoor bathrooms. The room has good aircon, a TV, minibar etc. There was the occasional shot-lived power cut but nothing we didn't expect on the Gilis.

Pool area is great and the bar/restaurant area is probably one of the best on the island.

The service was good and the staff were very very accommodating in helping us get a boat to Gili Air, despite us not staying at their Gili Air site. They basically gave us a free boat ride.

We can't recommend Scallywags highly enough.

We stayed here For 4 nights and loved every minute. The rooms are very private with your own porch. They are big, great comfy bed, satellite tv (hbo), outside bathroom. Pool is quiet and relaxed as the whole hotel and restaurant.
Great seafood BBQ. For decent prices (tax and service included). Try the lobster... Amazing. We would recommend this to all our friends.

Great. Really great. Superb rooms, love the outdoor bathroom. The rooms are spacious, great beds, clean and beautiful designed. The pool area is perfect for lounging around for hours. Staff are very friendly, efficient and have a little attitude (in a good way!). Loved our 5 nights here, thanks Scallywags!

We stayed at Scallywags for 5 nights, September 2012

My partner and I had an awesome time at Scallywags, from our arrival till our departure the staff were exceptional. The facilities were exceptional, the pool was great, clean, big and proved to be a place to be in the heat. The pool side beds were a highlight, a great place to snooze. The rooms were well thought out from the fine details of an Australian power socket. The finer details about the room was well thought out, however what the room did lack a phone. The bed was comfortable, an important necessity on any holiday. The bathroom was well designed, we enjoyed the outdoor shower.

The breakfast buffet was delicious, a large selection of different foods; from indonesian to western food. Generally the food was also delicious especially the chicken fajitas, our experience of the BBQ at Scallywags was a little disappointing, slightly overcooked. we throughly enjoyed a shot of wheat grass shot every morning.

A special thank you to Brett a manager at Scallywags Gili T, his smile and friendly nature made our stay extra special, who was also approachable and went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable and smooth

Scallywags in my opinion is the best hotel on the Gili's. Also the restaurant in my opinion is the best choice available on the island. If you like BBQ'd seafood and meat you are gonna like this one!

Very kind and helpful staff, we only stayed for 2 nights but the rooms were very clean and nicely decorated. The outdoor shower is something i do not see every day so i liked it. i did not make use of the pool but it looked very clean and nice.

Also we took the daytrip to the scallywags resort on gili air which i really liked, next time i am definitely staying a few nights at Scallywags gili air instead! Its a little more relaxing there and the beaches are cleaner.

I can recommend Scallywags to everybody!

We stayed there two nights but we would have been more than happy to extend if they had availability. Rooms are very nice and large, with private small garden (nothing you'll really exploit, but gives really the feeling of privacy) and outside bathroom.
All is kept incredibly clean (not only for Gili T standards, that are quite low, but for western ones). Staff is very professional and welcoming. Pool is nice and clean. Position perfect (but in Gili wherever you say everything is close by...)
Not cheap (for Gili T stds) but definitely worth every penny.
