We actually booked another hotel quite near Villa Julius , but found on our arrival , that the rooms were awful...... so , we got on a horse cart and made our way round the island to find our perfect spot.
Villa Julius was it.
A gorgeous Villa , with a salt water pool , on the beach.....perfect.
As we had met another great couple of nearby Meno , we booked the entire top floor.. giving us oodles of privacy.
The breakfast was great , loved the muffins...and they had proper English breakfast tea....
Nice touches on the menu , like Tuna Carpaccio , foccacia bread and we all loved the Villa Julius Trophy , which was a gorgeous ice cream and meringue desert ....yes we put on weight here !
The staff were attentive , but never crowded us...and were sweet and friendly , nothing was too much trouble.... our friends birthday fell on one of the days we were there , and one of the staff made a coco-nut pina-colada for her , adorned with flowers and a little note for her as a suprise...so thoughtful.
The Villa is spotless , gorgeous bathrooms and comfortable beds with perfect pillows.
The salt water pool was a real touch , soft on the skin and practically on the beach.
The highlight of our stay was meeting the huge blue spotted gecko on our last night , priceless
Don't forget that Gili T has no fresh water , all the fresh water is shipped from the mainland...so having a fresh water shower is a real bonus.
Gili is a small island , so bear in mind , sometimes the generators break down , this is the tropics , so yes , there are insects now and again...but Viila Julius is an absolute find.
It truly is the only place thats right on the beach...far way from the noise of techno T...yet close enough , if you fancy a boogie , to all the action !
Oh yes...and wi-fi with a pretty decent connection.
We loved it !
