“Beautiful boutique Hotel away from the crowd”
Reviewed June 18, 2011

A very Nice and well maintained little boutique hotel isolated from the heart of the Island. Beautiful sunset right across the road (road is a little strong!...) the ice cream home made is to Die for!

My girl friend and I stayed for about a week at Hotel Villa Julius and it was the type of holiday experience that you can only dream about. It was perfect in every way. All the staff are angels with the most beautiful smiles and simply some of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. The hotel is located on the quite side of the island with the best little beach just in front of the hotel were we had a great breakfast most morning. The big breakfast is just fantastic and the banana pancakes are yummy. It was nice to wake up on the quite side of the island and then make our way over to the main section of Gilli T, either by cutting through the middle of the island where the villagers are going about their island life or to go around the outer ring of the island. Both are heaps fun and everyone is so friendly. The Hotel staff is headed by a woman named April who was just so helpful and took care of everything for us. (Oh yeah – All the staff speak perfect English) She was just the nicest hostess. Then there was a woman named Zey and guy who worked in the little hotel restaurant who both where very caring and where always so very attentive and gracious. All the food tasted yummy – just perfectly cooked and tasty. I really just can’t say enough about how nice April, Zey and the gentlemen who work at Hotel Julius but please take my word for it they are simply the best of the best. We were lucky and stayed in the beautiful suite that is just above the restaurant that has the massive balcony. The bath room is big and really nice, plenty of room and good quality. The room is spacious and just a really beautiful room that is perfect with chairs and a lot of space to hang out and feels very comfortable. The pool is a good size and looks out to the beach. We loved playing in the pool hanging out on the beach having a couple of beers or eating dinner. I really could just go on and on about how nice I think that Hotel Julius is as a hotel experience. It is one of the magical places that really does tick all the boxes. I highly recommend this hotel and I am grateful for April and Zey for making our time at Hotel Julius simply perfect in every way. Lastly it is really good value for money – A Five Star experience with Six Star staff.

Room Tip: We loved the room with the massive balcony

The first thing that make Villa Julius so special is location. On the solitary part of the island, with no neighbours around and right on the beach. Peacfully and beautiful. The room was amazing, big double bed, huge bathroom with tub and shower and private balcony. The staff is really nice and helpful. It is possible to rent a bike or snorkling equipment. Breakfast is included and you can choose from a variety of different food (eggs, pancakes, omlette, fresh fruit, yogurt, bread, fresh juice, coffee, tea). We stayed there for 3 days (in february, they offer special promotion, rates were 50% off) and enjoy every second of it.

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 !

We had an amazing time at Villa Julius, I have no complains at all. It is a bit expensive for being in Indonesia but it was definitely worth it!

Villa Julius was everything my wife and I were looking for during our honeymoon in Indonesia.

Located on the north section of the island, VIlla Julius is a peaceful oasis on a pristine section of beach with almost no other tourists. When we first arrived in The Gilis, we were disappointed to hear booming techno and see hordes of tourists mobbing the east section of Trawangan. Villa Julius was the exact opposite. This place is a real paradise for anyone looking for peace, quiet and the perfect romantic getaway.

Service was phenomenal from every member of the staff. The Swedish manager deserves extra credit for calling down to friends on the east part of the island to help us arrange activities. We were even bumped up to a superior room that was vacant and included a huge terrace overlooking the beach. The room was spacious and included large candles, gorgeous bed and mosquito net, beautiful stone bath tub, rain shower, electric safe, elegant lighting. It was everything we had hoped for and more.

Every morning we woke up to order a delicious breakfast (don't miss out on the blueberry smoothies), which was served anywhere — by the pool, in our room and even on the beach — and included in the price of the room.

Only the most high-end places on Trawangan have fresh water (imported from Lombok) for bathing (the others use saltwater), and Julius is among the places with fresh water but at a more affordable price. The bathroom and shower were gorgeous. Everything about the room was fabulous as well — though, as another reviewer noted, the air conditioner was not working (we were notified of this before we booked our room, and the air conditioner was unnecessary anyway.)

Villa Julius is the very last place hotel as you walk north around the island, and it is also the most secluded. Disappointed with our first hotel, my second morning on Trawangan was spent visiting every hotel my wife and I might want to stay at. I visited more than ten. All of the places I liked were on the north end of the island, but Julius left all these behind. If you are staying on Trawangan and looking for serenity or a romantic escape, there is no better choice than Villa Julius.
