Pondok Santi is situated in what I believe is the best part of Gili Trawangan. A super short bike ride north is a great spot for snorkeling, SUP hire, surfing, then you reach some great restaurants just a little further north. A short bike ride south is the best location to watch the sunset over Mount Agung (Bali). Gili Trawangan is a very short boat ride away from Lombok. My little family of three enjoyed the boat trip on the Princess Margaux to Teluk Nara.
The huts are nice and comfortable, I especially like the outdoor bathroom.
Thanks Georgie, Baz and all of the staff at Pondok Santi. Cheers for joining us in a game of volleyball, thank you for the delicious breakfasts, papaya and orange juices.
I miss Pondok Santi on wonderful Gili Trawangan.

- Pondok Santi Estate is the ultimate getaway retreat featuring twelve beautiful bungalows set in lawned grounds on an ancient coconut plantation. Each traditional bungalow has a beautiful open-air bathroom, safe, air conditioner, mini bar, fan, lovely front terrace and day bed overlooking the manicured grounds. Private Pool Bungalows also include their own plunge pools, sun lounges and king size outdoor daybed. There are several day beds around the pool, on our beach and on the grounds, which are the perfect place to chill out, sleep or read. During the day, get together around the large 25m central pool where snacks and cold drinks can be ordered, listen to music or just relax on the sun lounges. The resort offers a boutique restaurant, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner while the main beachfront strip starts just 400m away with dive shops, restaurants, and beach bars, so you're never short of somewhere to eat. Cooling white stone paths link the areas of the estate, and coconut palms provide welcome shade in the heat of the day. In fact, everything has been designed to make sure your stay is comfortable and hassle-free. The island, with its coral reefs, is a favorite destination for divers, and one of the best dive spots is right outside Pondok Santi. There are plenty of dive shops on the beachfront where you can hire equipment, and arrange a boat trip. You don't need a boat for snorkelling as there's plenty of colorful coral and marine life to discover from the beachfront, including turtles, clown fish and many more! If surfing is your thing Pondok Santi is the perfect place, with a surf break right off the beach. For a couple of hours either side of high tide, you can paddle out and enjoy the waves.
