The Trawangan Resort - Gili Trawangan Island
I never expect that I could find a great accommodation in Gili Trawangan. The Trawangan Resort is just like luxury life in the middle of virgin island. Located in front of the beach where you can snorkeling only 10 meters in front of you. The staffs are well trained, good communicator, and helpful. The property was excellent: bathroom, living room, private swimming pool, kitchen, and quiet. The owner and the Cheff will be happy to greet you as their guest. Bicycling, snorkeling, diving are fun here and the staff will happy to assist you to get all information about the island. Must try!

Room Tip: Overall the room is good, but please try to get the room with garden view. Huge garden view.

Starting from the check in our stay at The Trawangan Resort was pure sunshine. Very friendly and helpful staff who mostly speak good english, the BEST location -close to everything but still on a peaceful and quiet part of the island. Beautiful beach with service from the hotel bar and restaurant if you want to have a drink or a bite while lying on your back in the sun :)
The room itself was ok, nothing fancy but nice and clean. We had a small private patio and our toilet / shower was outside too which was fun :)

Went with my wife for a couple of days, to celebrate her birthday. Been to Gili Trawangan many times but never been happy there. We decided to change hotels and stay at Trawangan Resort for a change and was so happy we did! The staff were great, the location even better, the rooms were clean and modern (and plenty of hot water in the shower) The food was delicious (luckily for us they have a new chief from Great Britain and his Lamb Shanks were fantastic) The bill on check-out was amazing. I thought we would have paid twice as much. Can't recommend this establishment enough for value for money.

Room Tip: The new section rooms if you are going as a family - they are big enough to play tennis in the bedro...

We went as a group of 12 friends for 4 days, and in general, this was an EXCELLENT choice for a hotel in Gili. In terms of location, it can't be beaten. It is right at the end of the busy strip, so it is easy access to lots of bars and restaurants without the noise and chaos.
The staff are very friendly and helpful too. The rate includes breakfast, which is served on the beach. The menu for lunch was limited, but good, and there are lots of other options nearby anyway!

The one point to be aware of is the vast difference in quality of the rooms. The 2 bedroom villas are beautiful, with their own pool, living area and nice furnishings. The 1 bedroom villas are also nice, and guests can use either of the 2 communal pools. The single rooms are all located in one big villa at the front of the resort, and these are also nice, but perhaps a little whiff of mould in the room we were in. The 4 bedroom villa was quite disappointing. It looked nothing like the photos, and thats because the photo on the website advertising the 4 bedroom villa is actually the 2 bedroom villa (which is lovely). The 4 bedroom villa was VERY basic. It had a small pool ,and a row of 4 rooms. Each bedroom only had a sheet and pillow on the bed, but the other rooms in the resort had nice blankets etc. The living area was one long sofa and one long dining table in a very dark and dreary outdoor room. The 'kitchen' was a fridge basically and a long workbench. There was a giant hole cut out of the marble on the work bench, presumably cut for a stove/oven top, but the kitchen just looked very bare, unfinished and depressing.
So, in summary, absolutely book this resort for your holiday, but avoid the 4-bedroom villa. Top choice otherwise!

Room Tip: Try the 2 bedroom villas! The living areas are lovely and they have a private pool!

The Trawangan Resort is one of the most beautiful places we've stayed! The staff are extremely helpful, friendly and accommodating, there's nothing they won't do to make sure you enjoy your stay with them. The Resort is right on the beach at the quiet end of the island but very easy to walk to from the main Harbour. They have just employed a new chef from Scotland and the food was very good. Breakfast, which was included, is A-la-Carte and there is a great mix of Indonesian & western food to choose from. The rooms are spotless and well maintained and very spacious. The pools are very clean and the surroundings very beautiful. They have facilities if your looking for group accommodation - you can book 4 villas with own pool and dining area which would be great for a small party or celebration. We cannot recommend this Resort highly enough. We will definitely make the trip back to Trewangan again to stay at this incredible destination.

I recently stayed at The Trawagan Resort and it was awesome.
Great food and cold beer as on holidays is what you want.
The staff are so helpful and kind and if you run into the owners they are so cool.
I stayed in the front villa which made me feel like i was the king looking over the surf break and the pool.
During the day hanging out in the tree houses and having a beer was making me feel like i was really on a holiday in Indonesia.
To end it all up,it's worth the coin and i will be back to stay there for sure .
