We stayed in Papalagi a couple of days: it was nice time there. Great view at the sunset time, nice people, quite place, super clean room and bathroom, wonderful meals... We couldn't ask for more. Strongly recommended
I went for one night and stayed for four...it still wasn’t long enough! Hera and Michael will make you feel like you are visiting family rather than staying in a resort. I loved the private beach and the snorkelling was excellent right in front of the hotel. As it’s on the western side of the island the sunsets were amazing as well.
Staying with Hera at Gili Gede is not like staying in a hotel. It like coming home after a long day of work to your beloved family. The place it self is very remote. Hera will organize everything for you. So it is simply about enjoying the silence, the ocean, the sun and the best Indonesian kitchen. When ever you have a question or a problem you will get help. The 3 days we stayed there weren't enough. That's why I will come back!
We happened upon this lovely place when we decided to walk around the island of Gili Gede. As we approached we seen this picturesque daybed sitting on the beach with a lovely lady relaxing all alone ...so peaceful... like she had the island resort all to herself. Once she noticed us she made introductions and welcomed us to her resort. The day bed on the beach had me from the very first moment. This sweet warmhearted lady gave us a wonderful tour of her place including the cottages in the upper portion of the garden beachfront property. Wow!! So beautiful. We wish we could have known this place existed when we booked our trip. It was just so beautiful and tranquil. It was absolutely perfectly situated to watch sunsets and see Bali Island in the distance. She informed us that she offered full menu rates as an option, so essentially you could just relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. The resort is also strategically located for easy access to the nearby island that is best known for its snorkelling areas, which can be easily organized with her own boat. This island can be walked around for the most part, so you don't have to force yourself to lay in the beach day bed all day...hahaha. This island is in the region also known as the Secret Islands, as they are are not so overly populated like the gili islands on the NW of Lombok, making this place very peaceful. If you want to find a piece of heaven, away from it all, book some time on your trip here..... you will thank yourself for choosing this little resort..... Getting here is easy from Bali or Lombok Islands. From Bali there is a direct fast boat service from The most direct route is to take The Speed Boat from Serangan Harbour (Bali) to Gili Gede Island with the trip only 1.5 hours. The Boat arrives in front of the Kokomo Resort where they can pick you up. They can also arrange this fast boat trip for you to save you the trouble. Gili Gede is only a 2 minute boat ride from Lombok Island at Tembowong Harbour. I wish we had known about this place ...…
