““The Real Peaceful””
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

We stayed in Joglo House as my favorite place to stay. Its my 3rd times going to the escape island and always booked at Joglo House especially number 3. I recommend it. You can hear smoth an etnic instrumental from the restaurant and the wave....its facing to the beach and im swimming at night and laydown under the stars. ITS PERFECT !! we get the peaceful moment on the escape island...its feel like teraphy holiday. You can Sitting on the deck waiting the sunset with coctail. its lovely. The staff were friendly and helpfull...you can ask the fresh coconut from the tree.
In the Joglo house.....so relaxing on the bed under the curving ceiling. Its Fantastic. No need air conditioner at night...just open all windows and get the wind blow till early morning to get fresh. im doing snorkling just in front of the hotel...thats good point.
so relax..... with the nature and so quite .... its the right place to get the peaceful.
And i’ll be back again.

Room Tip: Joglo House Number 3

This place was a real find. We used this as a base for a family holidays (7 and 5 year old boys). The rooms are generous in size, and private. The beach is nice, the pool although salt was a hit with the boys and staff just lovely.

The other positive reviews highlight a lot great things about this place and I fully agreed.

The distance from the main town was a bit of a Challange if you are there for diving, however hiring a bike soon solves this and one of the main features of this place is its away from the backpacker crowd.

Dear Superchiller P,

Thanks you for your nice comment, we are really happy to know that you had great time with us. You are right the weather can be really hot in Gili T and this is why we decide to do not use hot water in the room, fresh shower make you feel better after a long sun shiny day.

We hope you will back back to us soon.

We wish you all the best and thank you again

We chose this resort as it was away from the main strip and we wanted somewhere quiet to relax. The rooms were nice and authentic the only problem was no air conditioning, it was extremely hot when we stayed and the fans just didn't cut it! (we live in Vanuatu and are use to the same type of weather)
We stayed in joglo 10, which was beach front, it was fantastic. The resort seemed quiet when we were there (which suited us) the breakfast was yummy and we enjoyed a whole day relaxing on the beach huts reading mags, playing monopoly and drinking cocktails!
The staff were friendly and were very helpful in organising our transfers etc.

Dear Mars 86,

Thank you for your great full comment, you did stay in the Joglo vila 10 and as you say without AC and of course a bit hot but so nice to have a really beach front room with the breeze from the indian ocean. We also have rooms / bungalows wit AC for the guest who want it. By the way you made a good choice staying at Joglo villa 10.

Your comment are very nice and we are happy to did make your holiday a great moment.

Thank you again and best regards from all the staff of Desa Dunia Beda Resort

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

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.

Dear Martine,

Thank you for your comment about our resort and staying with us. Dont worry about the staff and them working time. They have of course break time during the day. You may saw them all the time for the simple reason that they are living / staying in the resort as well. They have a staff mess in the back and we work with rolling schedule not shift time. This is why you will see the same face early in the morning and late at night but dont worry they dont work 16 hours a day..... and of course they also have day off when they go back to them house / family in Lombok.


Best Regards

Spent 2 nights of honeymoon here. Staff lovely people, Javanese hut exquisite and authentic, outdoor bathroom rustic and bracing (cold salt water shower makes you feel manly) Cross the road to Desa beach terrace and drink Bingtang beer whilst reading and taking in the beautiful scene. Borrow Desa snorkels and float around the natural coral reef. We swam with a turtle for 20 mins. Just beautiful. We will definitely return one day.
