My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and how lovely it was after being in the hustle and bustle of seminyak. I loved that the island has no motorised vehicles, so it's cycling, walking or horse and cart (we did not use the horse and cart as I read an article saying they weren't treated the best). Anyway...

We loved our stay. Great location easy walk 15 mins at most from ferry along a paved path. I loved the beach and enjoyed the modern loungers right on the water. My boyfriend preferred the shaded pool area. I could look over my shoulder and see him googling away. The beach was almost to the quiet end but still had...

Staff are lovely however a little forgetful, both breakfast's we had were a mismatch of our order or forgotten all together. Felt quite forced into taking the snorkelling tour with them (at increased rate) and place could do with a makeover (which I believe is happening). There are plenty of better places on Gili T for the same price, even...

Our main objective was to stay within walking distance of the main area on Gili T and at both a responsible standard and price, so this place fitted the bill. So we arrived having been to two other places and for over two weeks we had a fair amount of luggage and fishing rods etc, so if you have suitcases...

Well run little place... Quiet, unless there are rowdy people staying... great beds, crisp dreamy cotton sheets were a huge plus! Excellent location. Rooms quiet when closed up. Partially outdoor spa - like bathrooms. Close to town, but not too close! Hot water sometimes was too hot. Little beach area, nice non-rocky beach. Good snorkelling right from hotel. Cant go...

The staff was five star for sure and the room was great too. After previously booking a room at Gili Bagaz (which is absolutely disgusting) we checked out and booked this hotel instead. This hotel was great the location had tons of restaurants, bars and shops nearby and was right off the main street which made it very easy to...

Lovely restaurant - really great breakfast. Right on the beach. Easy to organise snorkelling trips etc from the hotel for really good prices. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms nice, great AC. Really liked this place because they focus on being a green hotel, and actively try and reduce their effect on the environment.

Good beds + pillows + towels. Few mosquitoes but the reception had already prepared sprays to be used. Used it once and never had mosquitoes at all for 2...
