We stayed for 4 nights. The room was okay (room 12b) but pretty small. The rooms are cleaned every day and you get fresh towels every other day (or you can ask for fresh towels). Breakfast is pretty good. The beach and the ocean are very clean and clear. Pool is small and nobody uses it. We only give 3... More

This was the 4th time I've visited Bale Sampan and it's always such a treat! The staff are friendly and attentive and it's nice to see so many of them still working here year on year.

I visited Gili with my brother at the beginning of the year and wasn't sure what to expect when we went to Gili for the final 3 nights of our holiday. When arriving on the Island, it is pretty chaotic, especially in the heat, so it was amazing to arrive at Bale Sampan and discover that we had made a... More

We stayed at this resort for 1 night. Location is good. Rooms and bathrooms were nice. Air Con in our room was the biggest problem. Did not cool nicely and leaked on my head during the night. We also found some dead cockroaches in the room which is much better then having live cockroaches running around. Staff was awesome and... More
