“Stay at Marta's!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Thanks Joanna and Marta for your lovely hospitality during our stay last week.

We really enjoyed staying at Marta’s, the staff are very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfasts were great!

The accommodation (and pool area) was very comfortable and homely and I would recommend Marta’s to anyone I know going to Gili T :-)

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room that is not near the road, as there is a bit of passing t...

Nice room & great service. The staffs r very friendly & very helpful, they gave lots of usefull information about the island. They serve simple but very delicious breakfast. Too bad no cable tv there.

Hello!! I take time today to write a review since I had such a nice stay here at Martas.
At start, I was supposed to stay there for 3 nights....and it ended up 10 nights!! The reason? Of course because Gili T. Is a nice place, but what really influenced my decision was Martas Hotel :)
From the moment I arrived, I knew I would have a good time. The place is very clean, very spacious, nice air con, fridg, nice bathroom, etc...Not only the room was clean, but the pool, the floor in the lobby where we have breakfast, etc...And what made my stay even more enjoyable was the super nice staff!!! Really, having people saying 'Good morning Marie' when you wake up and you travel alone makes you feel good! everyday after the beach, I felt like going back home. Joanna and Marta are both great persons, Joanna helped to book my flight and the rest of my trip to Lombok and Marta was also helpful. If I come back to Gili T., for sure I will stay there again :)

Room Tip: There is a room above the kitchen....it's exactly like bungalow, but only one floor. So If you a...

easy 3 minutes walk from the beach and main street, perfect location for having good rest after whole day activities around the islands without disturbance from loud music from bar and cafe in the evening. Martas and Joanna (the owner) very friendly, also staffs being nice and helpful :)
Clean and spacious room, and the breakfast was super delicious and healthy.

Room Tip: room is perfect for 3 to 5 person sharing

From the moment we arrived on Gili T by donkey drawn cart :) we loved it .A 'free drink on arrival' and a friendly chat with the lovely and informative Joanna who gave us a quick tour before finding our cottage to relax in. We found Martas Hotel provided us with a basic quiet but very clean and pleasant room.Upstairs bedroom and downstairs bathroom with outdoor day bed (great spot to spend a quiet day reading!). The cottages are set back from the main drag so you can escape the bustle.
'Gili T' is a great little fun island, good snorkeling even just off the beach or on an organized boat ride, don't forget some cash to buy lunch (we thought 'includes lunch' meant they supplied lunch, but actually just means you visit another island so you can buy lunch). We would happily recommend couples or families to stay at Martas Hotel.

BTW we stayed there in mid 2011 and have only now got around to writing this!

Room Tip: Nothing particular as they are very similar 2 story rooms, all around the pool yard

I enjoyed my stay at Martas Hotel. It was a quiet oasis to come back to and rest after diving or walking around the island. We were supplied with lots of fresh ginger tea and Jo was quick to respond to our comment that the air conditioner was excessively noisy. The room was clean and the whole complex was well-maintained. Loved those banana pancakes for breakfast!

Our 2nd stay at Marta's, and still delighted by the welcome and the service.
This time around, we had 2 bungalows:

- 1 for a young couple and 2 teenagers: one private room downstairs + 2 beds upstairs.
- 1 for us: usual with bed upstairs.

Pluses:

- Joanna is a fantastic help with the organisation of the trip: she booked the fast boats for us, as well as helped us manage a last minute "crisis" with changes to flights.
- The team is really nice and genuinely helpful. From picking you up at the boat on arrival, organising bike rentals, snorkeling trips, an adapter for your chargers, wifi codes, etc. to organising a cidomo to go back to the boat upon departure, the whole team is always available to help make your stay a good one.
- The accommodation is great value, and the included breakfast is yummy.
- The place is an oasis just 1 minute away from the main drag.
- On Joanna's recommendation, we organised for a local masseuse to come to our bungalows, instead of using one of the many "salons". Eda is really good, and I would recommend that you book her whenever you are staying at Marta's. At the equivalent of A$12 for 1 hour, there is no excuse not to have a daily massage.

Minuses:

- not any that I can think of.
- The street on which Marta's is located can be full of big puddles after a big rain, but nothing that Joanna and Marta can do about it, and most of the other roads are the same.
- Some maintenance work has been completed on the bungalows, especially in the bathroom areas, and that works well for us.


Probably important to note is that Gili Trawangan is not as developed for tourism as places like Phuket or Bali (which is the reason why we go back), so expectations have to be adapted. Even in more expensive places than Marta's including the couple of supposedly "5-star", you will encounter staff who do not fully-understand English. It is not an issue as long as you are aware and prepared. Same for electricity cutting off: Marta's have a generator.
