“highlight of our trip to Gili”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

A very quiet, peaceful area of the island away from the noise and partying. Set up beautifully but the highlight was the staff. Each member of the staff went out of their way to ensure our comfort and satisfaction. definitely recommend.

Overall i enjoyed my stay here. Great villas, Great staff. Its suitable for peoples find calm tranquil place. And its suitable for honeymoon couples too.

The cons only beside the villas there is another new villa on development, so noise came up till night

Overall this is a great villa that me and my friend really enjoyed. Laid back there
Cheers

well i don't know where to start - the location is simply perfect, the beach like paradise, the snorkeling fantastic and the people, especially the staff, the best we've ever had.
Atun, the guest relation manager and the hole team accomplished that we had a perfect week in Gili Eco Villas - thanks on this way.
Special thanks to Acry - the best barkeeper in the world!
The rooms are very affectionately arranged, clean and big. The outdoor bathroom is amazing and the fresh water tank and the drinking water possibility in the villa are other advantages.
Besides, the villas are away from the party-places and so they are really quiet and offer best relaxing posibilities.
Food is delicious and always fresh prepared. Breakfast is included, enough and was always very good.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay, we love the people and the place and we will definitely come back!

Alot of people complained on the island of false advertising in relation to wifi access and hot water. If this is important to you as is a comfortable bed and excellent customer service this is e place to stay. You can't ride into town due to sand roads but you can get a horse and carriage for $7 on way home and walk 20 min into town, as there is nothing to do on island you will walk into town daily and main strip of accom is surrounded by bars open until 5 in morning every second night and wasted tourists. We fell in love with Atun and Wayan. Atun is an asset to the company and our customer relations person. We got to play our own music at the bar and even had own cocktails made. All our meals were served on the beach. They is even an excellent salt water pool, pity about the kids. We organized private boat via eco villas and travelled around the gili islands to snorkel. It cost $70 to hire the boat for 4.5 hours - an absolute bargain for the most amazing experience on the island. We swam with turtles and even found nemo!

We had an absolutely fantastic 6 nights at Gili Eco Villas. The villas have character and everything you could want, the gardens are beautiful and it has one of the best bits of beach on the island. It is the perfect spot to watch the sun set behind the Bali volcano.
It is nicely away from the noise of the town and you could easily be on a different island when you do venture in.
The staff were enthusiastic and friendly and helped to make our stay as good as it was.
There is a brilliant dive school a minutes walk away and the house reef is right off the beach. My only improvement would be to offer complimentary use of the snorkelling equipment so that you could nip out to the reef whenever you felt like it.

Room Tip: The smaller 2 bed villas looked cosier

We would highly recommend the Gili Eco Villas. We stayed for 6 nights with our 8 and 6 year old children, who were treated like family by the super friendly and helpful staff. The food was great, the accomodation just what we hoped for - sensitive to the environment, comfortable, designed for the climate, simple, clean and stylish. Great for people who prefer to feel the air than the air conditioning. Kids loved the pool which we could see from our villa. We snorkelled with the turtle in the ocean at the front of the villas every day, saw amazing fish life, and would really recommend taking reef walkers so you are then able to access the water once the tide is out in the afternoon (late afternoon was some of the best snorkelling when fish getting quite active). We also went horseriding and hired a glass bottom boat to go to the other Gilis (all organised by the staff and starting at the villas) but those were the only other activities we needed (but the trip to the local school and back streets of central was good too). Good location out of the hustle of central but still close enough to walk to most things and tou can use a cidomo for longer trips. Sunsets and breakfasts on the beach are amazing. Very relaxing holiday, felt like we had had a month off in just a few days. We read other reviews on this site, the negatives in those we didn't notice or were actually positives to us!

Room Tip: villas 1 and 2 are closest to the pool but still feel like you are private. lots of room between al...

My family stayed here for a week. Its location away from town gives it quiet isolation but there are enough restaurants / dive shop etc on this side of the island. My daughter is too young to ride a bike so we needed to hire horse/cart in the evenings if we wanted to head to the main drag.
We stayed in the rear double storey villa. The open air bathroom and sitting areas up and downstairs were great. The bedroom upstairs had very squeaky floorboards - obviously the use of recycled timbers is a great concept, but the practicalities of the design make the experience a little rustic for some. I would recommend one of the single storey villas to the front of the property.
The beach at high tide is perfect - at low time it looks like a moonscape so swimming at that time is limited. Sunsets across the northern stretch of beach is great.
Staff there were super nice but as with most hotels/restaurants on the island, the their friendliness often smooths over the lack of training and sharpness. The restaurant does a job and I would say that they really need have a look at the quality of what they are putting together - admittedly as with many restaurants on the islands they try hard with limited facilities/ingredients. Having breakfast on the beachside gazebos is a real plus ........ but they struggle making toast!
Swimming pool is really nice .........but they really over do the chemicals they put in it
So many good points about this place ........ but they let themselves down in the detail. With a bit of effort, it could be better. Alot to like but would I recommend it ........ yes/no/maybe. Are there many better places on the island ....... probably but not too many. Very relaxing and tranquil - might be worth a try.

Room Tip: Choose the single storey front rooms
