Where do I start? If you are looking for luxury, with all the mod cons, this is not the place for you. If you are after an escape and a bit of isolation in a rustic, quirky part of the world, The Secret Island “Resort” on Gili Gede is well worth a visit. We stayed in the old bungalow over... More

However I haven't slept in the hotel (we were staying on a sailing boat nearby), we went there for breakfast and dinner for quite a lot of times. The staff is amazing, so friendly, helpful, and honest people. They don't speak very good English but they really make every effort to make you feel relaxed and they are also very... More

My husband and I stayed in one of the "over the reef bungalows". We stayed four nights there and could have stayed four more. The journey from Lombok airport is about one and half hours on quiet, scenic roads through tiny local villages. It felt great getting away from the tourists of the north Gili islands. We were welcomed by... More

Lovely chill out place over an easy access reef. Being used to beach huts in Thailand and Malaysia, I didn t know what to expect, but Secret island resort was far above my hopes. I arrived on a rainy afternoon in March, looking for the 150 000rp rooms advertised on their website; unfortunately were these rooms under renovation ( new... More

I do not have enough positive adjectives to adequately describe my stay! Peter, Titin, and the ENTIRE staff are flawless. They are hands-on, interested, accommodating, the food is fantastic, and if there IS a problem and a guest DOES let someone know about I, it is handled with speed and perfection. I was with the great people at Secret Island... More

There are several reasons I was the only guest at this place, it wasn't because it was the low season, the pearl beach resort, with much nicer grounds and accommodations were full for a few days. I can't call it a resort. This compound has no charm. My boathouse has more charm than the shacks in the water. Yes you... More

We always regret someone not being happy with us: And I am not even sure who this quest is or what happened to upset him. For the readers info - Rp300,000 with breakfast and return transport across channel makes that room and/or bungalow the gentleman stayed in about US$20. Quite a bit cheaper than the cheapest bungalow at the Dive... More

There is nothing good to say about this place. Sadly it is still running, despite filthy overpriced rooms, way above local hotel and hostel prices in the area. A barbed wire fence with concrete and broken shards of glass surrounds the entire complex giving it a distinctly sinister un-holiday atmosphere - the wall is not in the photos on this... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Secret Island Resort is a Eco friendly small resort with a very good small beach in front. We are slowly rising up to a 3 star quality hotel in a 5 star location. There are now 7 units with solar hot water and now there are 2 'Bungalows over the reef' available. These are stable units attached to a dock within easy walking distance to the Restaurant and lounge. These two bungalows over the water are the only ones in either Lombok or Bali. The snorkeling is great nearby and the fishing is still good to. SIR operates a 9 meter sport fishing boat called 'Scorpio' that is very good for touring the 12 South west gilis and snorkeling to. ... more   less
