“Just Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2011

what can i say... just perfect.
Gili T: Divers Paradise. We don`t dive but even snorkeling ist great here.
Many Restaurants - but imho the scallywags restaurant is one of the best on the island.
Even though there are Parties in one of the restaurants every night the room was quiet enough to sleep very well. Aircon, open-air bathroom, flatscreen+dvd+large dvd-collection(free). Super friendly Staff, Breakfast was ok inkl. fresh juice.
Don´t miss to visit the scallywags beachclub on gili air. just ask at the reception.

Been many times to Bali and south east Asia, this is really a great place with consistent great food....probably the best for $'s on the island.
Really well run boutique hotel with organised staff....really nothing to complain about.
All depends on what you want to spend of course as you can stay down the road for $10 if you want.
Staff are all superb and just lovely people.
Snorkelling and diving is great....we saw giant turtles 3 out of the 4 times we went out just snorkeling....cooool.

My Wife and I stayed at Scallywags in May of 2010 in part because of Trip Advisor Reviews along with recommendations from our friends. Upon arrival, our room wasn't quite ready so they provided us a free drink while we waited. After a few minues, we were shown our room, and it was great. A private outdoor area in front of the room and a private outdoor bathroom in back of the room (the bathroom is great, but beware the floor is black slate type tile that gets hot during the day in sun.). The room itself is comfortable for two people with a mini fridge to keep your drinks cold. You can use the drinks stocked in the fridge for the same cost as if you bought them at the front shop.
Scallywags isn't cheap, but it isn't expensive either, so a backpacker with a little extra money would LOVE this place as it it just down far enough from the bars to stay quiet, yet still very close walking distance. We also saw a few families during our stay with small kids who seemed to really like the place (they took over the awesome pool for a few of the days which was a little disappointing) .
Scallywags also provide a cheap boat ride to ther other resort in the Gilis (island closest to Lombok) if you want to do a day trip (we did and it was a lot of fun...totally different scene)
Unless you are looking for dirt cheap accomedations, or 5 star appointments, Scallywags would almost certainly be the place to stay!

We had a lovely 4 night stay here in November 2010, which was partly let down by the fact our room was the first in line, and adjacent to the pool. As a result, down one side it has a garden built against the room wall, and there had clearly been some drainage issues, which caused a very bad smell to permeate our room for our whole stay. Because they were full, swapping rooms wasn't an option.

The room itself was nice and clean and comfortable, although I found the outside bathroom unbearably hot and humid at times.

The staff, led by Sinta, were great. The pool area is great too, and the restaurant serves some of the better food on the island, especially the lobster.

Location is good, just south of the main part of town, but close to a few bars, and it manages to be quite quiet out the back near the rooms.

We also visited their bar on Gili Air which was amazing, although the water was a little dirty with garbage during our swim. We felt very sophisticated boating to another island bar and still having a tab!

Overall a wonderful place to stay.

Dear Sydney Chalten
Thanks very much for favourable review, as you probably know we are an eco resort harvesting very valuable rain water. This rainey season has been pretty full on and we have been overflowing from our extensive under ground water capacity tanks into our soak aways. After looking into your complaint we discovered a problem was on next doors land and have since rectified it. Thanks for identifying this problem it will make our future guests stay more enjoyable.
If you ever stay with us again make yourself known and i will shout you a beer.

All the best

We loved the whole experience at Scallywags from the point of check in till the hotel speed boat ride over to Lombok Island.  We stayed 3 nights over Xmas and our room was really beautiful. It created a very quiet oasis in what turned out to be a pretty hopping party island. With only 10 rooms we had a really fun time hanging out in our pool area. The restaurant was good but they might make just a bit more effort on their salad bar that accompanies the BBQ dinner. Their seafood might be the best on the island though. They provide a trip over to Gili Air which I would highly recommend. It's quieter and the snorkeling was very good.

Really nice hotel with very friendly staff.

There is only one improvement I can think of and that is that the guys managing the BBQ at night really need some proper training. Believe it or not but they managed (several times) to turn some of the best fresh fish and meat in a tasteless funny looking dish. (Staff reacted very nice though and food was taken of the bill).

But do yourself a favour and visit the hotel!

It was our first time to Gili T and to Scallywags. What a lovely surprise!! Gili T is amazing and Scallywags was fantastic. From the time we arrived the staff where very friendly and happy, the rooms are great very spacious, clean and quiet. Great location to walk everywhere and the food amazing, fantastic seafood BBQ. We will be back sooner rather than later.
