My partner and I stayed in one of the non-AC cottages which was well equipped and overall impressive. A king size comfortable bed, fans, storage space, and an outdoor bathroom which was the selling point. The location of the cottages was set back off the main path along the beach which provided some peace and quiet, not to mention the... More

Lovely and very clean bungalows. All come with a little front area and a hammock. The breakfast is fantastic and the staff is super nice. Wifi works perfectly even in the rooms. About 30 seconds walk to the beach and one of the best snorkeling spots on Gili Air. Spent a week there in total and loved it. You can... More

I had booked my stay at another property down the road as its reviews were so good. Unfortunately it didn't live up to them for me. I found Banana Cottages quiet by accident and I could now be happier. The staff are so welcoming, helpful and friendly. The bungalow style cottages are spacious. Very clean with a semi open air...

We stayed there for a week and had a lovely time, the staff were very friendly, the breakfast was good and the overall service was great. We were very close to the beach, could hire snorkelling gear and bikes. It is situated in a lovely leafy area. We had the shower outside, which was really nice and refreshing. The only... More

We walked from the harbour through the island and checked out a few places on the way. We stopped at banana cottages and decided to stay there. The rate was really cheap (280'000). The room was really dirty and the bathroom smelled of mold. Also the water comes from the ocean! I wouldn't recommend to stay at this place since... More

This is definitely the best place to stay if you want to balance budget, comfort and beach proximity. Also the staff was very kind and forthcoming and the breakfast was great compared to others on our trip. The restaurant offers fresh fish of the day. You can book different tours, such as Rinjani Trekking, Lombok Day Trip or Snorkeling with... More
