This still remains one of my favourite places to stay in our 2 month trip of Indonesia. However I want to give a truthful review. The tents are luxurious. The beds wonderful. Linens and towels beautiful. The campus is beautiful. The toiletries are low quality refills in the beautiful personalised glass bottles. The campus is on the sunset side of the island, a 15minute bike ride from the Main Street of restaurants and bars. This was ideal for us as we wanted quiet- and we got it it was fantastic! They do provide you with beautiful new (old fashioned style) woman's bikes which are all red. The only issue with this is you have to rent the bikes per 24hrs (this lead to an attempt at over charging as staff changed and didn't know we were still within the same 24hrs). Another

The only positive I can think of is that some of the staff were very friendly. But I'm afraid the following is all negative. The rubbish dump nearby caused a ridiculous amount of flies to swarm around waiting to pounce on our food. Everywhere else on the island did not have a problem with the flies to this degree. The food was poor quality, very salty and I found a bug in mine. The AC is not effective enough. You cannot relax there between 9am - 5pm because it's too hot. Poor location, the beach is a 5 minute cycle ride, but it's not a nice beach, lots of rubbish. The rental bikes are poorly maintained and broke numerous times, leaving us stranded late at night and we either needed to carry the bikes back or walk back and leave the bikes chained up. There was building works

Dear Lean, First I would like to apologize if you had a bad experience at La Cocoteraie. Your review is very critical, but everybody have their own opinion and the right to express themselves. So I would like to do it myself too: La Cocoteraie has many reviews on Internet and we have the chance to get a very high positive return that we are proud of. Like anywhere else, of course sometimes we can have some issues, but we try to solve the problem as soon as possible. For example the zip of the tents are not broken, it is simply unzip. In 5mn time with a tool we can repair it. We decided to implement La Cocoteraie far from the busy and crowned part of Gili Trawangan, because the concept needs to be in a quiet part. It takes 7mn to to go the main beautiful beach by bike. Maybe 7mn is a big amount of time for some people. The rubbish place situated in the middle of Gili Trawangan is an issue for all the Gilis. The Association ‘Gili Eco Trust’ is working a lot to get this issue solve. The government finally accepts to take responsibility for it, so soon the rubbish will leave Trawangan every day by boat to Lombok. The rubbish place will disappear. We are all fighting to keep the island clean, but it can take some times to change the mentality. From the hotel, there are 3 different way to go around Gili without passing the rubbish place. Regarding the flies, we do have some flies mainly 2 months per year due to the raining season. There are some insects as well but Gili is not in Europe, it is a tropical island. Insects or animals that you don’t have in your country exist in Asia. As you can see on Internet, we have many good comments on the restaurant. Guests congratulate our chef for the nice grilled fish, seafood or dishes that he is doing. Our bikes are brand new. We bought them in November and December 2013. We maintained them every day. Like any material, it can break but I really think that you have been unlucky. There is no Internet speed connection on our small island. Wifi can be down due to the weather. I do apologize for that, but there is no better Internet connection available in Lombok. We do have some constructions (not coming from us) close to our resort till the 1st of june 2014. Again I apologize for this issue. We do now send an email to the guest to inform them about the situation and we offer 40% discount till the 1st of June for compensation. Regarding the work on the Christmas day, I do apologize but Christmas day in a Muslim country is a normal day. Our main goal is of course that our guests have a great time during their holiday at our hotel. We do apologize if in your case, we haven’t been able to do it. I think that I saw you only 5mn and I was speaking with other guests when you left. I realize that you check out earlier than expected 20mn later but you already left. If one day, you have another problems like that, we would like to advise you to speak to the manger before leaving and explaining your concern, because there are always solutions and concession to make, but only if the concerned persons who can solve the problem are actually aware of the problems you have. The staffs follow the rules of the policy of certain travelling websites but at the end, if I would have known when you were still here, I will have done something for you. We still hope that you had a good stay in Gili Trawangan.

A hidden gem - located amongst the coconut palms a short bike ride from the beaches and the busy side of the island. The tents are lovely - spacious, clean and mozzi free! The bathrooms rustic (cold water only) and the communal area bright and breezy with lots of comfortable bean bags to laze about on. The bikes for rent were in good condition and Nathalie was wonderful at arranging things for us for our departure. The chef is a real find.. we highly recommend the baked fish! Breakfast was also above average. For those who want to party the main drag was just a ten min bike ride away and riding back at night with the help of our borrowed head torches was one of the high-lights of my stay there.

La Cocoteraie is quite a unique set up on this island. It's quiet and easily accessable to the main part of town by bicycles. The tents themselves are solid, the linen is top notch and the beds are comfy. Their kitchen produces very good food thanks to chef who was there from morning to night bless him. Bathrooms are a outside in an enclosed area under a thatched roof. Completely private with cold water, not that you need it any warmer. The only issue with the bathroom is when there is rain it floods the bathroom completely and drenches everything in it. The water is a brown coloured mess once it's goes through the roof. We were assured that the roof was designed so that there was a run off and the bathroom would be protected from the occasional torrential down pour. It didn't

Dear Danielle, We would like to thank you for your review about La Cocoteraie. We are glad that you did appreciate your stay with us. Regarding the bathroom's problem, you are completely right. La Cocoteraie being a new hotel which opened in August 2013, we never had to deal with the rainy season. You arrive just at this moment. And we did discover almost at the same time of you, that when it was raining there were some leak in the bathroom. So we already start the construction of new bathrooms. You can see the pictures on our FB page. We build them as soon as we can, but it will take few weeks to have the 8 rooms done. We hope to see you again, and when you will come back you will have brand new bathroom with no leak!

we found a peaceful place and booked this charming Ecolodge: THE COCOTERAIE. It is far away from the busy side of the island, located in a coco palm tree grove. To get to our hotel we took a traditional horse cart, because there are no cars on Gili (no cars - no police,…) When we arrived here we wanted to stay - FOREVER. The lodge has 8 luxury tents, 2 jacuzzzis and a restaurant, that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. The place is just breathtaking. All planned and designed with so much love - into details. The staff is great, super polite and friendly. Back to nature - in style is the motto of La Cocoteraie. And that is how it feels to be here. The LUXURY tent is furnished in a very pretty vintage shabby-chic style: has a beautiful four-poster-bed (with mosquito net), a
