We were recomended Gili Villas by a friend and what a great find. The villas are close to all the action but set back so very peaceful and so spacious! There is sunbeds on the patio but also a shaded gazebo and loads of living space. We had such a great time hanging out there, the island was fun, we did a couple of good dives, rode horses on the beach at sunset and ate pretty well. There is a couple of mosques on the island so there is a bit of noise from them but its a muslim island so to be expected really, the staff were super helpful, can't wait to visit again.....

Room Tip: ask the staff to rent bikes for you, its much easier to get around and better than the horse and car...

Great relaxing atmosphere on this super little island, loved the design and lay out of the villas - the architect really did make a spacious but private oasis of calm -difficult to believe is just a little off the main strip where the restaurants and bars are humming. Organizing the trip was a breeze, the local staff mega helpful and ever present. Run by the very friendly guys at Manta Dive round the corner where i learned to dive - never wanted to leave!

My husband and I were booked this accommodation by friends who know Gili very well and we were astonished when we walked through the gate to our Villa.

It was a wonderful setting (5 mins away from the hustle and bustle of the main street of Gili by the Harbor), very private and extremely spacious. Essentially, the Villas have their living space outdoors, complete with a huge kitchen, dining area, living room and of course the wonderful pool. The bedrooms are indoors, air-conditioned, spacious and each have en suite facilities.

Breakfast was included and it was absolutely beautifully done. You order your food the night before and someone comes at the time agreed to prepare it for you in the morning. The choice is great (from freshly baked, warm bacon and egg baguettes to the healthier choice of a big ball of mixed fruit with muesli and yoghurt) all prepared fresh and served on your dining table.

I, like others, must mention the Mosque. Gili is a Muslim island, its relatively small and has two mosques so you would hear them wherever you are. But to us this was such a non issue, sleep with ear plugs or simply ignore it - its a non-event!!!

Overall the place comes highly recommended!!! Thank you for the staff of Gili Villas for making our stay so memorable!

first of all I would like to mention that this was my 3rd consecutive NYE trip to Gili so based on experience I decided to book a villa couple of months in advance (Sep) and even then places like Scallywags and Beach House were completely booked out. so it was a nice surprise to hear back from Tony @ Gili Villas on the same day of my enquiry and i must say, him and Chris were both instant with responces to any of our queries (and there were a few! :)
upon arrival at Gili T, the staff greeted us at the beach and arranged our transportation to the villa which is conveniently located around the corner from the jetty!
the minute we walked into our new home, all 4 of us were gob smacked at the size, design and quality of this place!!! the staff showed us where all the switches etc are located, gave us the keys and breakfast menus and left us to explore our domain...
all i can say is the place actually looked exactly like it did on their website!
a massive tick to staff/management for the well airconditioned rooms prior to our arrival, we were hot and buggered from the trip over so it was heaven to walk into a bedroom that was so cool, not to mention spacious and VERY clean! the bathrooms are huge and another tick for freshwater showers (unlike some of the other hotels on the island).
so these were our first impressions and after 5 days i have to say, we couldn't have thought of anything that could make our stay any better!!!

my personal top 5 on Gili Villas are:
- outstanding service (always with a smile no matter if it's day or night)
- central location
- huge space and a lot of privacy
- breakfast cooked every morning in our villa at a time nominated by us!!!
- prompt communication with the management and easy & safe payment options

things "picky" people may find annoying:
- nearby mosque prayers (our group were very respectful to the fact that we are guests on the island and should adjust ourselves to the local ways but when it did get a tad too much we just turned up our music :)
- occasional visit by the local cats (once again, our group enjoyed having them over and we even adopted one kitten and had it sleep over and eat breakfast with us, she was very affectionate and not ferral at all!) by the way all the cats on the island are stray as explained by the staff, the only pets locals keep are cows, goats etc

all in all I give Gili Villas 5/5 and that is why we're booking 2 of them for the 2012 NYE!

happy travels to all!

This is my third stay at the villa over the years and true enough, time has taken some of its splendour away but it certainly did not take away the hospitality, the smiles, the welcome and most importantly, the way ppl running this property are willing to go that extra mile for us. The place is very clean, a little dated in some aspect but still in much better shape than most. It is near the township, food everywhere, but remaining rustic and quiet. Sleep quality was good and despite adverse comments by fuss-finders about this and that run-down, this place is conducive and nice to stay. Villa comes with wireless, and punctual made-in-villa breakfast. Housekeeping was a delight, anything you request comes to you within moments. Being Asians, we are some of the most difficult travellers all over, but with Gili Villas, the kind of software in human touch, I think all my stays in Gili T had been great because of the people here, not because of the great furnishing or physicals, but the friendship, the warmth and hospitality accorded to us. Great stay!

Room Tip: Email and discuss with the owner regarding your needs. He will assist you as much as he can.

Great place - we really enjoyed it. Our villa was clean and very comfortable. The private pool was amazing - we were 4 girls and there was plenty of space for the lilos in the pool and the feel of the place was fab. I see what people say about the mosque but you'd have that wherever and it is their culture so you have to accept it. We passed lots of other "beachfront" hotels and the pools were facing onto the footpath where everyone walked passed and watched them as they ate/drank!
We had an amazing time and I would definately go back and recommend to others.
