We stayed for 3 nights and it was awesome...i totally recommend it for those who want peace & quiet away from the loud night life at the city centre. The room is beautiful and ao are the staff..good service and nice people. The rooms are clean and tidy. The restaurant food is very good so you dont have to go all the way to the centre for a decent meal! Special hi to the beautiful Inda ...she was very helpful. All the staff are very noce and friendly and they helped us so so much even with our speed boat booking

The hotel is located on a great part o the island, on the NW tip, away from the more noisy eastern shore, yet a nice 20-30 minute walk along the coast.

The beach in front of the hotel is not very sandy and the dead coral makes the dipping experience a bit uncomfortable, but the hotel is in beautiful grounds and rooms are spacious and very nicely decorated. Bathroom is outside and we found a scorpion there one night, luckily no problem.

Staff is also super attentive and helpful. Recommended

This was our first trip to Indonesia, after enjoying our first 5 day introduction by way of Sanur, it was time to head out on our big Gili Islands adventure. After much research and consideration we entrusted Blue Water Express fastboat service to deliver us safely to Gili T; we're pleased to report having a very pleasant experience and would strongly recommend them. Upon arriving Gili T, we were taken by Cimodo, cross Island (which can be a bit overwhelming culturally at first) to Desa Dunia Beda where we were given a brief introduction to the facility, breakfast schedule, bike rental availability etc., before being checked in to what became our most favorite ever home away from home; Joglo #9. Our stay was nothing short of amazing, the staff were excellent as was the facility, there were some great beachside dining choices not more than ten minutes walk when we didn't feel like making it to town most evenings and bike rental from the resort became our favorite mode of transportation to get around and explore the Island during the day. We personally enjoyed the salt water showers as a part of the Island experience and the dimmer evening lighting inside out Joglo lent to the remote Island feel that we embraced. We also enjoyed having the traditional Java style coffee delivered to our room each morning (sure beats a Mr. Coffee machine sitting in the corner of such a beautiful and traditional cottage.) The only warning we would give future travellers is that the beach right out front is not that usable due to the shallow reef, that said, there are plenty of beautiful beaches within walking or biking distance and this didn't impact the enjoyment of our experience. The hardest thing we had to do was eventually check out, we will be back, no doubt about it!

Room Tip: Ocean front Joglo recommended, A/C not necessary if you want to experience the complete Indonesian e...

We stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel itself is great. It has a nice pool and the beach is just in front of the hotel. If you want to go out for dinners/lunches, it is 30 mins walk to the centre where most restaurants are located. You can take a horse cart which costs 75000IR. We tried the satay chicken at the hotel which is quite good. There are 4 different choices of breakfast that you can choose from, there is a lot if food. The hotel has fresh water in all the room now, we were told they just installed it two days before we arrived. In the past, I think they use salt water for showers.

We stayed here in September 2013 and had an unforgettable time. The staff is exceptionally friendly and the hotel grounds are beautiful. We stayed in bungalow closest to the beach, which was beautiful. The hotel is located away from the hustle and bustle of Gili islands main beaches, which was exactly what we were looking for. The number of people at the beach right in front of the hotel is very limited and gives you a very private feeling. You should however bring your water-shoes as you will have to walk out a bit to reach deeper waters. Once you are there you will be rewarded which a beautiful underwater scenery. Maybe also rent a bike from the hotel and make a tour around the island, which will take you roughly an hour.
The hotel staff is very friendly and the hotel food is also quite good, if you do not want to go elsewhere.

We just spent 5 nights in DDB, the manager and staff are really lovely. The pool is salt water and really nice. The ocean front is full of lovely corals and shells.

It is on the other side of the islands but a quick bike ride or horse cart ride away from center, our 5 years old walked back from village no problem.

There are few places to have lunch and diner around.

Beach front Joglo are the best - the family one are the back and really not as nice (we find). we had a single bed added to our beach front Joglo and it was perfect.

Warning - the shower are salty water and you rince from a fresh water bucket, we loved it but some might get surprised.
