“WONDERFUL!”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We stayed in the Twin Room left and everything was perfect. Beautiful decoration, clean comfortable bedroom, nice outdoor shower, quiet surroundings, and yummy food at really good price. Bernie and Made are really nice and made our stay there unforgettable.
Although the property is not beach front, it takes less than 10 minutes to hit the gorgeous white sand beach. You won´t regret if you stay there!
Tip: Bring a flashlight for the night walk.

Super nice property, but away from everything. Would recommend a location closer to the beach or the main town part of Gili Meno. The walk home at night was not fun, and a real pain when it rained. The property is well maintained and great food! If you're more interested in reading in a hammock then swimming and eating in different restaurants then the location is fine.

We had a memorable 6 night stay at Meno Dream Resort, for all the right reasons. Clearly Bernie & Made have a very strong vision of the environment & experience that they want to create & share with guests - & we were delighted with our stay. This was our first visit to Gili Meno, but we have travelled extensively in Indonesia & SE Asia. Meno Dream Resort is not your "average" accommodation, but something much more unique. We greatly enjoyed the warm welcome & subsequent conversations, the freshly prepared food, the landscaped gardens, the peaceful mood... All in all there is a quite magical quality about this property. We enjoyed our walks to & from Meno Dream Resort a great deal, & felt we experienced more of the island because of this. Also, the beach on the quieter side of Gili Meno is only 5 minutes away - & deserted! We left with very happy memories.

We stayed with Made and Bernie for five nights and enjoyed it all. Made's cooking was the best we had in Indonesia. My daughter, months later, out of the blue asked "Will we ever have gnocchi as good as Made's?" Rooms are beautiful and landscaping gorgeous. Not right on beach but walkable to all parts of the island.

Based on the many excellent reviews, we booked 4 nights in one of the 2 fan rooms. Bernie and Made have made this place special, but it is not completely finished. Our room was comfortable and clean, with a very good bed and big mosquito net!! The bathroom is partly outside and nice, however if you take a shower, the floor in front of the small wash basin gets wet. We had to ask for clean towels after 3 nights and also for toilet paper. Not a big thing, but you might find this annoying. Meals are well prepared, but choices are a bit limited. Outside the resort it's village style, so be aware of the fact to have a lot of chickens and roosters around that can wake you early, so take earplugs. When we left Made was going to change windows to be opened and probably better lightning in the rooms, cause at night, we found it very dark in the rooms. We are sure Bernie and Made will make your stay pleasant, as they are eager to make this small and nice resort going!
If you stay here and you are looking for a bit more comfort, do book the ac room, which looked very nice and most comfortable.

Room Tip: The fan room was comfortable but during our stay, very hot. They are changing the windows, so they c...

All the very nice things said in the previous reviews are correct, namely:
- The resort is the cosiest accomodation in Meno, beautiful bungalows and garden.
- The couple that runs the resort, Bernie and Made, are very nice and welcoming :)
- Made cooks really amazing dishes, and at a very reasonable price.

... but I will also like to draw your attention to some weak points not mentioned here:
- by Sept 2012 only 1 room had aircon. This may not be a problem during most of the year, but during the days we stayed there it was too hot. We didn't feel good during the day inside the room, even with door and window opened.
- the 5-10 minutes to the beach are a short and pleasant walk. However, take into account that most of the other accomodations in Meno are just at 20m from the beach, an option you may prefer. Except in the harbour, the other accomodations are also very quiet and relaxing even being right on the beach.
- being the resort near the houses of the locals, we were delighted with very early awakening sounds as: a chainsaw cutting nearby palm trees, many roosters, chickens... etc.

Bernie and Made's place exceeded our expectations from all of the past positive reviews. We rented the bungalow with the upstairs open roof, which we used for afternoon breezy naps as well as evening stargazing. I highly recommend Meno Dream to anyone traveling to Bali. You will want to stay at least 3 nights because the sea crossing is quite rough. Make sure to bring Dramamine...

(Oops! There is no pool..I don't know how to undo the rating.)
