Trawangan Cottages 2
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Maybe we arrived at a bad time but I can verify the previous review. The owners got very greedy as there was no alternative accommodation available probably due to the end of Ramadam (many staff return home for a few days) We could never find anyone from the staff.
We booked for 4 nights but got told the price was going up substantially after 2 nights. We witnessed many people enquiring about accommodation being quoted over 3 times the normal price.
The bedding was unclean, water supply intermittent (we used the garden hose one evening to shower) The location is central which is about all that can be said in its favour
We stopped previously at the 'Exile' a really nice experience and I know there are many other reputable B&B's on Gili, give your custom to genuine business people who deserve it.

Booked for two nights on booking.com. We arrived just before 5pm so not terribly late (the ferry was delayed). When we arrived the owner told us that he had given the room to someone else because we had no deposit! I have never had any issues like this with booking.com. The owner told us to ale it up with them, it wasn't his fault apparently! Gili T is fully booked so we now find ourselves stranded on the island with no ferries back and no hotel. Didn't get a chance to see the amenities but the owners' attitude is enough to put anyone off. An absolute sham of a place! If the owner doesn't trust booking.com then he needs to get his hotel off it! I have booked 90% of my hotels with booking.com and never had an issue, clearly it is just the owner being greedy!

Room Tip: Avoid at all costs

Backpacking in a group of four, we really enjoyed our stay at Trawangan Cottages. It's just far enough from the bars, so you can get a peaceful sleep at night, which is what we all wanted! The rooms are big, with aircon and a comfy bed. We loved the big balconies outside our rooms. The breaky is yum, I suggest the banana pancake which is huge! Wifi is reasonably good and all the staff are friendly. We found Gili to be quite expensive but I think this is really reasonable in its pricing! Would definitely recommend to others !

The cottages are near the beach, bars and restaurants of Gili Trawangan. However the shower is cold, its not a big problem. The room is clean and the breakfast is ok. We stayed here four days and we liked it.

Room Tip: Every cottage is the same.

Mould climbing up the walls, bathroom with bath but no hot water. Very cheap and nasty, but regrettably not cheap enough. Did something I've never done before - walked away (despite prepaying for 2 nights) and found myself another hotel.

Plenty of cheap options on Gili T, but this place did us OK for the week or so we were there. Minutes away from the beach, bars and of course the crystal clear warm waters of Gili. Room included a small ground level balcony, cold showers and clean twin beds. No breakfast served but quite often we didn’t wake until gone midday anyway given the party side of Gili so that didn’t matter! Walk round the island to the sun downer bar that only opens for an hour each day. Incredible island. No wi fi (2010) on island means expensive internet café the only option.

This review is for the restaurant, as I didn't stay at the cottages.

The most authentic Indonesian food on the island. Plus, the waitstaff here is unforgettable! I will never forget Ali, as long as I live! His wise-cracks, jokes, pick-up lines, and attempts to hook everyone up were incredible. Everyone on the island knew Ali! Seriously, this was unforgettable! Thank you Trawangan Cottages!

The food is nearly as impressive as their CD collection. Seriously, you've got to ask them for a look at it! Very reasonable as well!
