“Great place at a great price”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We stayed here for 5 night and paid £60 per night to stay in one of the superior rooms. The room was lovely with a big bed, beautiful furniture and very spacious. It was very clean and everyday someone made the bed and cleaned the bathroom/floors.
The location is excellent, near the nicer restaurants and a short walk to the nicest part of the beach. The pool was small but that didnt matter when you have the beach right there. We enjoyed watching some of the movies they put on as well as watching a few DVDs in our room which we bought from local guys.
Our only problem came when eating at the restaurant which took us and other tables near us almost an hour and a half to receive our food, with poor service. However the owner was always around and she explained they were short of staff on that particular night and also gave us a big reduction in our bill.

We would highly recommend this as a great place to stay on gili.

We only stayed one night but would've loved to stay longer. We moved from the very disappointing room at Blue Marlin (more expensive, more basic, poor service) and were extremely happy with Pesona.

Rooms are small but perfectly formed. Nice design touches, large bathroom, comfortable bed, crisp clean linens.

Breakfast is very good - a decent selection cooked fresh to order.

The small pool is a lovely place to relax.

Staff were very friendly, helpful and professional.

When booking the Pesona the first thing is to realise that it isn't a 5 star Resort, doesn't pretend to be and suits Gilli T perfectly, as that is the vibe of the island.

This place is Boutique and fabulous. The staff and owners make you feel at home, and everyone is accommodating and friendly.

The rooms are spacious enough, with a great bed, air con and shower. There is no closet space but plenty of areas to stack your clothes. The rooms have a nice ambiance about them, and the hammock at the front is a really great touch. The staff even moved chairs to the front of our rooms when asked.

The pool is small but big enough to cool down, and the view from the end overlooking it, the restaurant and the ocean is something that will be embedded in your brain once you return to work.

There is a great area to lounge around and read or pick up the free wi fi, and they also show movies there of a night time.

Breakfast is basic, but enough to get you through and at least you get served rather than school camp buffet like in the big resorts.

We only stayed 4 nights, but could easily have lingered here longer.

We spent four nights at The Pesona in July 2013 and had a ball. Gili T is old school and we love that but we also love 1/ Being on the edge of the hotspot and 2/ being able to get away from the rat race.
First the location is perect, fifty metres south from the jetty and walking distance to everything. (Okay the sunset bar we caught a horse and cart) The venue is quiet clean and comforatble. It is not a dive school and has a quiet relaxed bar which reflects the atmospere of the resort.
Samira (I hope thats spelled right) is lovely and was extremely helpful pointing us in the right direction for everything. Didn't meet hubby as he was away in Bali.
The island itself is captivating and you will find yourself walking around open mouthed at the beauty and simplicity. This resort matches it in it's simplicity. Good rooms great staff.
Remeber, nothing is big in Gili, this is a boutique rsort and it does it well.
We would not hesitate to book here again.

Room Tip: Air con can be loud but it is working it's backside off so suck it up.

Loved the Pesona Resort. Centrally located with a nice little pool overlooking the beach and the main strip. The staff were helpful and friendly and owners Sumeena and Sandesh were delightful hosts. The bungalow we stayed in was comfortable and clean - everything we needed from a place where we only slept. The price of the stay was extremely reasonable and I will definitely be coming back. Sheesha lounge area on the beach was divine at night time to chill out and have a few drinks before going out.

after almost 30 years of going to Bali, this was the first time i had stayed in Gili. The island itself won me over straight away with its beaituful beches and clear water. But our stay was made even more enjoyable due to our accomodation choice at the Pesona Resort. From the minute we checked in Sandesh and his team made every effort to make us feel welcome and his beautiful little family also so warm often chatting with us by the pool as if we were old mates. the location of the Pesona was perfect for first time Gili T-'ers with easy access to all great food spots, snorkelling, bars and other night spots. the rooms are just right for what we were after because we didnt want overly-luxurious rooms or too-budget, they matched up perfectly with the feel of the island. I am already planning another trip back to Gili T next year and I will most definitely stay at the Pesona again

Room Tip: choose one of the bungalows - rooms 1 to 5

Close to everything.

Loved chilling out by the pool or looking over the ocean with a shisha.
Overall great value for money.
