My husband and I stayed in Shack 59 for part of our honeymoon in December 2011 and we couldn't have asked for a better place to relax and unwind. Shack 59 is set back about 100 metres from the beach, it is a large 'shack' (with all the mod cons, its hardly a shack) and with the addition of your own private day bungalow right on the beach with day bed, table and chairs - it really was an amazing holiday location.
Hire a snorkle and fins directly from Shack 59 for about $3 per day and you swim out about 30 metres into the clearest water I have ever seen to a reef filled with colourful marine life. We also organised to go out a little further in a fishing boat (also organised by the shack) and it was so amazing, we saw turtles, with one being very curious by coming up to the surface to check us out. Awesome!
The service was impeccable. Callie and Hengke were so prompt with emails prior and organised our transfers to and from the island and were so accomodating when we arrived.
There are no cars or motorbikes on this small island. So if you are looking for a true island escape - this is one place not to miss
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Escape to 2 simple getaway cottages on NE side of Gili Meno Island. These cottages are deliberately simple in design so one can relax and disengage from the stresses of modern life. This place was built with the idea of relaxing in a simple environment but with a few luxuries. If you are wanting "lights camera action" type holiday this is not for you. We rely on the island generator for power and embrace the simple life - if you going to get upset if the power goes out or water isn't delivered timeously due to bad weather or low tides over reef a remote island with no infrastructure is definitely not your gig. If you need simplicity and a pure island experience you will enjoy visiting us. 58 & Bamboo H are both beachfront properties, Shack59 is on a separate property about 100m from the beach, but it does have its own large daytime gazebo with bed and table and chairs and private bathroom where guests are invited to relax and enjoy the view. All meals are served on the beach gazebos. ... more less
