“Made to feel at home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We stayed at Rumah Kundun for a 7 days. We were only going to stay for 3 nights, but Kade & Dian made us feel at home so much that we ended up staying for 7 nights. We would have stayed longer if they had room for us. We stayed in the rooms opposite Rumah Kundun. Kade and Dian have recently taken these extra rooms on. We had a double fan room. The room was very clean and spacious. It had cold showers, but that was ok as it was hot on the island and you didn't need a hot shower! We had breakfast on our porch each morning and the banana pancakes were delicious. The room was basic but fine, set in a lovely little garden. The location is spot on. Its away from the main drag and you can get a good nights sleep there as its in nice and quiet location. Kade & Dian were very helpful with any information we needed. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to Gili Trawangan

I had a very nice stay at Rumah Kundun. I stayed 4 nights (first night I was placed in a different room in front of the guesthouse because of overbooking :), but it was ok, no big problem).

The guesthouse is very small and the rooms are in a wonderful garden, with statues and offerings in balinese style. The room I was given was very big, with a nice comfortable big bed, ok bathroom with only cold water (but you don't really need hot water in Gili!) and most importantly was spotless clean. You also have a lovely porch in front of the room where is very pleasent to relax and eventually talk to the other guests. You are also served the breakfast there, and it is absolutely delicious: great banana pancake, fresh fruit, juice, tea..
The location is also perfect, close to the main road and beachfront but at the same time very quiet and relaxing.

Kade, the owner, is a very sweet and welcoming lady, always avaliable to help and support. I was travelling solo and felt very safe and taken care of all the time of my stay!

I definitely would stay here again and highly recommend the place!

Kade is an absolutely wonderful host and made the stay great for us. The rooms are basic but fine and functional. The location is good a short work to the main strip but far enough to be quiet so you can sleep easily. Kade was really helpful in advising us on thing to do and places to go. She also helped organise our boat over from Bali at a discounted price and did the same for a snorkelling trip we went on. If you are happy for simple rooms with cold water this is a great place to stay. I would definitely stay there again!!

The most homely and nice atmosphere, all thanks to Kade, owner of the place. Great breakfast, great location, great garden. The bungalows are basic but clean, only cold water but not really a problem. So great stay :)

Really great little place with the friendliest owner- Dian, who really puts the effort in to making everyone feel at home. Delicious breakfasts (the best in Indonesia) and nice, spacious rooms close to the main street but set back enough to create a peaceful atmosphere.

What happens when you find a little piece of Heaven in Paradise ??? It simply means that as Dian, the owner of the " Rumah Kundun " told me over a nice cup of tea :" It must be Karma." And in that case, trust me, the Karma was Fabulous ! The Rumah Kundun is situated in the centre of the Island- not too far from the main " Avenue " where you will find the Night market, best restos, bars and of course the beach, shops and the Nightlife- but a nice walk to feel the great vibes of the locals, always smiling playing cards while the kids are riding their bikes ( which is one of the way used for transportation in the island) . Kade ( Dian's wife ) has turned this lovely Guest House into a " Mini Hindu Temple " with a slight Buddhist touch( Beautiful colors and the scent of encens ) which reminded me of my many trips in India. The room was spacious and clean and the breakfast ( banana pancake) in my case, so delicious that it alone- could be a justification to return next year !
All together- staying at the Rumah Kundun was THE best experience I had during my journey in Indonesia as the price ( around $15 US/per room ) was more than a bargain considering the outstanding beauty of Gili Trawangan. A Must for the Cool-Trendy " Who's been around......"

Room Tip: Air Con also Available.

I booked this place because of the review on tripadvisor. I sent email with Kade, the owner, and she gave really fast and well respond. She even helped me book fast boat from Bali to Gili.
I used Sea Marlin fast boat for 600.000 rupiah return ticket.
Rumah kundun is easy to find, just a short walk from the dock. Just ask for Budha dive and make a turn there.
The place is small, only 4 guest rooms. The bed is basic but clean. The water power is not strong but enough for me and the bathroom is quite clean. They served really nice banana pancake in the morning. Unfortunately i didn't have the opportunity to meet with Kade or Dian myself.
You cant compare this place with other resort around Gili T, but with the same price range, Rumah Kundun is worth it.
