“So lovely, amazing location!”
Reviewed February 27, 2010

We actually only ate here having stumbled upon it whilst walking around the island but having seen the rooms wish I had stayed here!
It isn't cheap but for what you get its amazing value, the rooms are like little villas of your very own... food is true fine dining as well, great cocktails.

We really enjoyed our stay at KoKoMo - the entire staff was so great and attentive. We hope to come back soon. If I had to say something negative it would only be that I prefer a soft bed due to back problems and their beds are a bit hard. But I know many people like that - so I guess it depends on your preference. The rooms are great with outdoor living and wonderful pools - even though the beach is steps away. We enjoyed a snorkel trip and many walks around the island and visits to our favorite restaurants. We will definitely recommend KoKoMo to friends and we will stay there as often as we can. We want to mention one staff member in particular that was amazing and that is Mark who manages KoKoMo - I asked if he was trained at the Four Seasons he was so professional in handling our visit and requests. Stay here if you can - This is a great hotel, and so reasonable in price. We extended our stay we loved it so much :-)

For our honeymoon we booked this resort and when we arrived on Gili Trawangan we were immediately stunned with the excellent service and quality of the villa's. The first two nights we have stayed in villa Hijau that had a jacuzzi, excellent!!

The food menu in Ko Ko Mo is out of this world especcialy when you consider that you are on a small island like Gili Trawangan. For instance oysters, crab ravioli, steak tartarre, sashimi and fresh black peppered tuna steak. The chef makes it all just like a piece of art.

The last 3 nights we have stayed in 2 bedroom villa Asoka with it's own pool. Because of the heat on Gili Trawangan (whe have stayed here in the beginning of Januari 2010) this is a very pleasant way to cool down!!

And last but surrely not least the staff. All the staff members under the guidens of manager Mark are the best we have ever seen and met. From the moment we arrived they new our names and we had a lot of fun with them.

If you are ever on Gili Trawangan you have to stay at villa Ko Ko Mo it will be an experience you will never forget.

I have traveled a lot to different places - both for business and for leisure and stayed in numerous luxury hotels including 5 star places, but I can honestly say I haver never experienced something like the Ko-Ko-Mo resort. Actually it is not a resort, but private villas that you can rent per night and an ocean side restaurant that also caters to the villas. For a price which is lower than what you would pay for a night in a pension in Paris (especially for Europeans with the current low dollar).

We stayed in a villa with 2 bedrooms connected by a spacious open air living room. The private pool / jacuzzi comes with an outside relaxing king size bed and 2 wooden deckchairs. The bed rooms are air conditioned and have luxury private bathrooms that almost seem Italian with their use of natural stone. The open air living room has an open kitchen, electric vents, DVD player, TV, sofa, coffee machine, large fridge, fresh water tank, large wooden dinner table, etc. The fridge is well filled with all kinds of drinks and snacks (complimentary but affordable e.g. 1 euro for a beer).

The villas are new and the decoration is modern and very tasteful. There are a lot of stylish wooden artifacts and paintings. Also the light spots including pool lights were done very tastefully. Each day the pool and villa are cleaned, incense candles are lit in the evening to keep away the musquitos (we saw none). There is a walkie talkie to contact the restaurant for catering.

The restaurant is another plus. The chef with his kitchen can honestly compete with the standards of the better restaurants in Europe, both in quality and presentation. And we are picky if it comes to cuisine. The menu includes dishes as Maroccan lamb, Sashimi, Italian bruscetta with fresh tomato, oil, garlic and basil, chocolate dessert with pistache ice cream. Although the ocean side restaurant was very romantic and cosy, we ended up ordering dinner in our villa for two nights and had dinner on the sofa in our open air living room while watching the stars (and afterwards a DVD - you can borrow recent DVD's from the reception for free).

Finally the personnel - in my opinion the key factor for success of a hotel - is like we've never seen before. Very friendly, professional, while respecting your privacy. Ask for Junaidi, our favorite employee and a cheerful person.

If you plan to go to Gili trawangan, which is a beautiful island with superb tropical beaches and no cars, this is the place to be!

Hi Frank & Maureen
As owners of ko-ko-mo we'd like to thank you for your glowing review and just say it was a pleasure having you stay as guests of the resort.
Our aim, with ko-ko-mo, was to provide a tranquil oasis at the end of the busy strip of the island, and it's evident that you recognised this! Part of the success in creating this atmosphere is indeed providing private villas with enough internal and outdoor space to create a sense of a 'home' within a resort.
In regards to the restaurant, we do place incredible emphasis on quality, freshness and constant updating of menus and training of staff. One of the partners was a well-know restaurateur in Sydney and thus has an even more integral role in maintaining the quality of the food and service, in addition to choosing chefs who have worked in some of the leading restaurants and hotels in Bali. In fact our head chef is about to head to Sydney for a week for training in a leading Double Bay restaurant so we are expecting even more wonderful creative additions to our already popular menu!
Finally - our staff. How can we even respond? We know they're brilliant - and every review on ko-ko-mo continues to point this out. Again, careful selection, grooming and constant training only adds to the caring and service-oriented nature of ko-ko-mo personnel!
We really look forward to welcoming you both back as friends of ko-ko-mo

My friend and I were recommended this place by some other travellers and I have to say that we couldn't believe our luck. The 2 bed villa was quite simply fabulous with a great pool where the sun shone all day long. The bedrooms were massive and the bathroom was one of the nicest I'd seen with a huge open shower.

The service was a bit slow - especially at breakfast but we got into the habit of ordering breakfast and having it brought to our villa so we didn't have to wait.

The hotel is in a great position on the south beach with only a short walk to the nicer restaurants and bars.

We had a great time and it was hard leaving. The Manager and staff were all very friendly. I would definitely come back here with a group of friends. It was great value for money ( and way better than Villa Ombok up the road) Nothing beats having your own private pool!

My wife and family have just spent 6 wonderful nights at this resort, in one of the 2 bedroom villas. The rooms are stunning with a great pool that knocks the edge off the heat during the day! We hardly left our villa during most of our stay as it was just what we were looking for in a resort. The food in the resturant was nothing short of excellant, we never ate anywhere else. The only down side to the whole place was one villa (out the front wasnt finished so a bit of building noise could be heard at times.
