We have been on Gili T from the 16th of November till the 20th. We arrived in the main centre and slept here the first night. For us a bit noisy, so luckily we found this lovely spot because we walked around the island. So, next morning we moved immediately to Desa Dunia Beda.
Our bungalow was beautiful, even as the swimming pool and the terrace with the gazebo's at the beach. Each morning we went snorkeling very early in the morning to spot turtles and had a delicious breakfast in the gazebo. The staff was absolutely fantastic and extremely helpful. So far absolutely nothing to complain about!
Though what made me very anxious were the working hours of the staff. From breakfast till dinner they were around, which means they had to work from approx. 6.00 am till 10.00 p.m. (16 hours a day)!! From my point of view this can be considered as absolutely leverage of the local people!! Especially because they (from what I heard), get only paid for 8 hours a day.
This made my stay a bit acrimonious as I couldn't enjoy my stay anymore knowing these people had to work for so long every day. The owner should absolutely take more sustainable aspects into account when it comes to the local staff but also when it comes to the environmental aspects like turning off the airconditioning when leaving the rooms and turn of the lights.
