I had a lot of great advice from the owner, before I arrived, particularly about the best way of getting to the resort from Lombok airport. So thanks to him I knew exactly what the taxi should cost, and even the boat which dropped us on the beach right by the resort. So that was great. I expected the resort... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon to Bali and although it was far from luxury accommodation I'm so glad we did it. Gili Meno is the most gorgeous island and the beach front timber house we stayed in was right on the beach, with beautiful views of the beach and sunset. The beach house was very basic,... More

I stayed there back in 2011. Couple months ago I just visited them for lunch. The food was still excellent. My favorite always the deep fried prawn with sweet and sour sauce. Their pasta is also great. I think they have the most traditional and pampering Berugak in the island. Love to chill to see the sunsets or waiting for... More

Sunset Gecko is on the north western side of the island. We didn't stay here but stopped for drinks on our circumnavigation of the island and spent an hour chatting to the Japanese owner, Hiro. He’s a very interesting man to talk to and has lots of great ideas. He set this café and homestay up about 12 years ago... More

Firstly, this place is excellently located for snorkeling. Great snorkeling in front of the mahamaya which is right next door, and you should see turtles. Coral is to the left of the mahamaya (facing the ocean) and between the two trees. The food at subset gecko is 5/5. The boys are all very friendly and try really hard. We stayed... More

Myself and my friend travelled here for some R&R at the end of two weeks backpacking around Bali. This place is a secluded paradise. Little huts on the beach to relax in during the day, snorkel equipment to hire to explore the stunning reef straight off the beach, qthe quietest part of the quietest of the gilis. This is a...

We did not stay at the sunset gecko, only eat there. We stayed next door at mahamaya where the food is expensive, so tried sunset gecko for food and loved it! Our favourite place to eat on gili meno. The tuna burger and tofu gecko curry were our favourites. The staff were friendly and the service great. The food was... More

We were having a great time, staying in a nice A-frame bungalow, abiding the many, many rules, and eating all our meals there (so giving them a very large amount of money - in our 3 months in Indonesia we never spent that much at one place). We were the only guests and were in one of the 2 identical... More

Second time in 3 years. Last time as single traveler, this time with the family. The Sunset gecko remains the nice simple place where everything is on turtoise time, but everything is just fine! The bungalows are well kept, the beach is still impeccable. Go snorkelling around 7:30 am and you will definitly see turtle swimming around. If not, the... More

“A tip? If you want to get the best out of Indonesian people - be friendly. They experience plenty of screaching from 'guests', all over Indonesia, and in general it does not tend to win either respect or what it is you are most concerned with seeing changed... And pay for what you get, yes? Having lived in Indonesia for 5 years and travelled here for more than 30, I think perhaps if all of us rich-by-comparison westerners stopped trying to see everything as an opportunity for us to brag about how little we spent... we might all have a better time! If you want a good room - pay a bit more, they have them!”
