We visited the exile during our stay in gili t in july 2016 for seeing the sunset - it was great. But we wouldn't recommend their food, we had the cap cay (40.000 idr) and the nasi goreng (45.000 idr), both dishes were ok, but nothing special. Just grab a drink, watch the sunset and then have dinner somewhere else.

Came here during the daytime as the beach is really pristine and quiet. Drinks are reasonable, the party starts at sunset when everyone gathers to appreciate the beautiful sky. A wicker man had been made and put onto a stake which was then lit on fire while a drumming band gave the evening an enthraling twist. Perfect place to appreciate... More

Came here at about 5.30 to see the sunset. The queue to the swing can be quite long, as its nearing sunset time. drinks here are ok, not too expensive. nice place to see sunset and take pictures with the swing.

This place easily became my favorite spot on the island and one of my most favorite spots all over the world. Not that it is something that special like a top notch rooftop bar, for instance, but just the whole laid back vibe there gives you this feeling of relaxation and happiness because of which one actually goes to a...

Great spot to view sunset! Cheap cocktails & the famous Gili swing & hammock are here for photos! We had lots of Mojitos!! They were fabulous! The tunes were good & the service was friendly! Good basic beach bar. Follow the main road around & you will find it easily.

We were at Gilli Trawangan for 4 nights staying at a small villa complex called Suasana Eco. Every night we cycled to Sunset beach to see the sunset. Our last sunset was at the Exile and there was a great atmosphere with a good mix of locals and the usual tourists. Excellent pictures taken of people in the hammock and... More

I visited the exile again after two years, the outside area is beautiful and is really well taken care of. The sunset is great. Definitely the place to be at 5pm. BUT: My girlfriend and I really dont have a high standard, it doesnt take a lot to make us feel comfortable, but we moved out in order not to... More

The bar is located at the sunset side of the island which makes it attractive for people. At the end it is like all the other sunset places that pretend to be stylish and posh: the food is overpriced and definitely not worth to try. The prices for drinks are higher compared to other places. The view is wonderful but... More
