I stayed for 3 nights in the dorm of Captain Coconuts and had a great time there! There are many other solo travellers and the vibe is very good for socializing. The beds are hanging on the ceiling and they provide large lockers where all...More

The food was all vegan and so good, some of the best on the island. But the service was very bad. The waiter didn’t understand my order and never came to pick up a drink order either. So we had an entire meal without anything...More

This place is actually part of a hostel, but the café is open to everyone. All their dishes are prepared in house and are free from dairy and refined sugar, plus there are several gluten-free and vegan options. The café is only open for breakfast...More

I visited Captain Coconuts with my partner whilst visiting Gili Air. As vegetarians we were very much looking forward to our visit there as the menu looked great with loads of veggie and vegan options! Sadly we were really disappointed by the meals we received,...More

Hi Nadine I’m so sorry you were disappointed when you visited our cafe. We have spoken to our staff to make sure the sauce is super spiced and tasty in future. Our “cheese” sauce is a turmeric spiced cauliflower and cashew cream, perhaps they did...More

If you are visiting Gili Air, I highly recommend you stay at Captain Coconuts. I stayed in the smaller room/bungalow and it’s definitely big enough (the only difference with deluxe room, is it is slightly bigger floor space). The room was clean, the pool was...More

Friendly staff and the best vegan nachos I have ever had (chunky avo, tomato, beans and eggplant). The rest of the menu looked fantastic for breakfast or lunch. Stop off on your way to the beach on the western side (sunset beach).

Booked 3 nights and stayed 10, and that was because I booked my flight back home, otherwise I would have stayed even longer. The vibe was just great. Lovely people, everything was very clean, floating beds were very nice and sleeping 'outside' was really confortable....More
