Rooms, are compact, but bathrooms are fun being open air and pool and relaxed dining /bar area is great. In the hub of all the action (not that it is loud), a great spot to watch the world go by and enjoy the wonderfully comfortable chairs with a cool drink. Food is excellent and speedboat transfer great. Enjoy.

Wow, what a great time we just had at Scallywags...spent 5 nights and it was just not enough, we were sad to leave.

As soon as we arrived we were smiling..the staff were very cheerful yet professional with a bit of humour we loved all of them. Check in was very fast and smooth..and when we got to our room we just fell inlove with the resort. The rooms are very clean, simple yet not plain and very beautiful..the outdoor bathroom did it for us...a bit weird for the first shower but we got used to it and found it to be liberating!! Loved it.
Pool is beautiful and there was always enough sunbeds available.

Breakfast was good for us..the right amount.. Gotta try the SAUSAGES best ones I've had in Asia..proper stuff. And their cappuccino, very nice.
We had all our dinners there and always had seafood, very nice especially the prawns. We were also so happy to find out that they do cider, it's called English cider, defo worth a try if you are a cider fan.

Location is perfect although the beach infront is not good for swimming you are less than 10minute walk to beaches on either side or just hire a bike to other beaches...the island is quite small I think we cycled around in less than 30minutes.

Yes there are flies and insects but that is not the hotel's fault, it's a tropical island, flies and mosquitos are everywhere.. It never seize to amaze me when people base their hotel rating on mosquitos in a tropical island...like really???

The hotel offers a day trip to Gili air where they have another similar hotel..it's 150k per person including food...defo worth a try.

All in all we really loved our stay at Scallywags...we met an amazing "young" man "Ted the Tiger" who works with the owner, what a legend!! Told us a lot about the is hand and Indonesia as a whole ad it was our first time.

We will sure return and stay for longer!!!

Gilli T was a perfect get away. We were a bit nervous taking a 2 year old there - but it couldn't have been more perfect. Scallywags was a great place to stay - it is located a little south of a lot of the bars, so it didn't feel like it was in the thick of the busy strip... which suited us fine. An easy 5 minute walk to some great restaurants. Having said that we found Scallywag's food to be fantastic and ate there most nights. While the breakfast buffet wasn't amazing, it was good enough and if you are a fan of Banana pancakes then you will be in heaven here! There are only 10 rooms so it is quiet around the pool, or you can sit in the cafe and watch the cidomos and world go by. The rooms are lovely with their outdoor bathroom and little deck and private courtyard at the front.

Room Tip: We were in room 1 which is the closest room to the pool. It was close enough for a baby monitor to r...

Just spent 5 days on the Gili Island of Trawangan - wow what an incredible place to have a break. If or when you go you must stay at Scallywags. laid back on the beach and bloody wonderful.With only 10 rooms you can have the place to your self or go to the seaside cafe/bar and mix with everyone.
The diving is sensational!

We paid $90 per night with breakfast.
Pros
Great position
Good pool
Comfortable and quiet rooms

Cons
The breakfast was terrible.
It used to be cooked to order but now it is a buffet and the food was old an unappetising. The only good thing was the coffee. Too many flys hanging around the food
The restaurant furniture is starting to look shabby and needs a good clean
Service - very hit and miss - some staff are wonderful - some are unenthusiastic and surly.

Will probably stay somewhere else next time

Just left Gili T after a great few days at Scallywags. Rooms are lovely and are very clean, outside areas are really nice. Pool area is also very good. Breakfast isn't amazing but does the job. BBQ in the evening is really good and always busy. The people that work there are very helpful and friendly. Went to scallywags beach club on Gili Air for the day which was a good day out but beaches are prob better on Gili T. Location is good, towards the end of the main strip. New pacific beach club the other side of Villa Ombak is a great way to spend the day. Got a speedboat over to Lombok for 150,000 rupiahs each via scallywags own boat, very easy and only took 15 mins. Would definitely recommend Scallywags.

Im returning again to stay at Scallywags as I find it perfect in every way. Staff are great, food great and breakfast is just what you need. I have stayed in the Hideaway twice but have chosen the rooms near the pool this time as there are 8 of us. The hideway is a cute room with a king bed and single if needed, your walk thru your bathroom to get to it, its cheap, clean, quiet and big!
Love sitting having breakie out the front watching the day begin and they make great coffee!
