“Great Hotel... Excellent Pool!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here for two nights in early November. Stayed in a bungalow and thought its was well equipped and comfortable. All the bungalows come with hammocks which was a great thing to spend some time in chilling out.

The pool and bar here are great. The pool has views of gili meno which was great. The bar is next to the pool so having a few beers in the pool was wicked.

The hotel is in the middle of the main strip a short walk from the main bars that go on to the early morning.

Stayed November 2012, traveled as a couple

Nice clean but modest rooms for those wishing to stay at a small friendly resort. Owners very helpful. Swimming pool small but nice to sit around with a relaxing drink. Beach opposite the resort often full with moored boats so public beach is a 5-10 minute walk away. Location good for restaurants. Would stay there again for the price.

Good way to break up your holiday in Bali. Value for money accommodation and plenty of excellent restaurants to choose from.
Bike ride around the island was a challenge for those not so fit anymore but worth it.

We had a great stay at Pesona Resort. Great value for money and very good service. We travelled with a large family group people between 6 and 70 years of age and found the staff very helpful. A generally great experience on Gili Trawangan, we will go back.

Room Tip: We stayed in many varieties of rooms and they were all great.

All the positive remarks about Pesona are spot on! I stayed here over the New Years Period for 2 weeks and had an awesome time. The location is perfect right near the heart of the action. The rooms are nice and the staff are fantastic. The owners (Sumeena and Sandesh) will go out of their way to ensure you have a wonderful stay. Im going back in just under 1 month - can't wait!!

I stayed 4 months on The Gili's, with my girlfriend. We stayed pretty much every night in Pesona's chill out area smoking the best Sheesha on The Island. (I Stayed 1 year in Egypt) and this sheesha is at least as good as it was in Egypt.
The owners are very friendly and helps you out with whatever problem you might have. They will give you great advise on where to go and what to see on The Island.

I stayed at Pesona for 3 nights and was very impressed with the place. I had one of the fan rooms at the back which is cheaper than the other rooms but by no means budget standards. The room was very clean, fresh sheets on the bed and lovely finishing touches all round. Big bathroom which was immaculate with hot water shower. The room had a safety box and plenty of drawers etc. I went diving each day and left my lap top in the room and in the afternoons I left my underwater camera there and it was very safe. The staff were grea - the inclusive breakfast was very good and I ate there two times for the Indian food which was awesome. I had the chicken saag both times and it was fab - popodoms too and pickles.
There is a nice pool and sun loungers, good cocktails, friendly staff and very good service. I will recommend this place to everyone. The location is also second to none. Thannk you Pesona for a great holiday - I will be back!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back have less noise thann the ones near the front. Get up early to get your sun lounge...
