For Gili T most of the accommodation and action is on the east coast. It would take approximately 30 minutes to walk from the southern point to the northern point. We stayed at Scallywags (great food and just close enough to some of the good clubs) Scallywags may cost a little bit more than $100 AUD but we loved it and would only stay there when we go back.

komodo and hotel ombah and beach house look to me to be the best hotels they are in the south east and next to restaurants. google them to see their current rates. otherwise martas was nice. there ae thre party nights on gili t so bring your ear plugs if you stay too close to the 'action'.

there are no cinemas on gillis. some bars/restaurants play movies.
