“Needs major renovation!”
Reviewed September 17, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

The property is really beautiful and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We were a group of 13 and we had booked the entire villa including the 3 guesthouses. Overall, the main villa is alright but needs some refurbishment as the furniture is old and the sink as well as the shower drain in the bathroom are clogged in all of the rooms. The 3 guesthouses are worst. There is barely any light in the rooms and it is pitch dark at night. The bathrooms are open air and you can see anyone in the bathroom of the neighbouring guesthouse. These guesthouses really need major renovation. I would recommend to stay at the main villa only.

“Our family home in paradise”
Reviewed July 27, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My brother and I stayed here with our families, four adults and five children in total which the villa accommodates very well. There are four large double bedrooms on ground floor two of which have a third bed in them e.g. for children. In fact we found there's another large bed upstairs with nets but no aircon or a bathroom. We didn't use it but as it turns out we ended up not using the aircon in our room anyway and sleep with the doors open to the sound of the sea and the birds in the morning. In that case you do need the mozzy nets but that has its charm.

It is spacious, tastefully decorated, well run by the manager Nans and very close to the beautiful beach, facing Lombok island. The villa is close enough to the main area with all the bars and restaurants, yet far enough away to be secluded and quiet. We had one night where we heard some music in the distance but otherwise nothing.

The big veranda is great to hang out with the family, on the day bed, around the dining table or the sitting area. It has a nice garden which is kept well and has nice local-looking lanterns in it.

The inclusive services like breakfast and laundry are well done and they keep the place tidy several times a day, incl wiping after sandy kids feet in bedrooms... The fridge is well stocked as requested but prices for beer and soft drinks are hotel prices, just so you know.

What I would point out, but that's a matter of private choice, is that the villa does not have a private pool and makes no claim it does, also seeing as it is very close to the beach. For the youngest children (our youngest is 3) this could be a decider though for some families.

Villa Hari Puri really did it for us, we had a great time and were well looked after. We would certainly come again!

“Great place...avoid dark and full moon parties.”
Reviewed February 21, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Stayed here with friends for 4 nights in mid February. The villa and location is beautiful, no pool but very close to the beach and close to the main shopping/restaurant area. Unfortunately we had to suffer through 2 days straight of rubbish dance music and thumping bass from the bar near by due to the dark moon party that was about to take place. On the first night it started around 6pm and finished around 1am which wasn't too bad, second day (party night) it started at 9am and went till 4am the next morning, I'm not talking a little annoying noise, it was a serious sound system going non-stop. Like trying to sleep and relax in the middle of a night club. Which really spoiled 2 days of our stay. One of the couples in our group couldn't cope and paid for another resort for the night. Luckily the music stopped for the last 2 days so you could hear the birds, and the waves and relax again. Staff were helpful (except for being vague about exactly how long the party went for) and breakfast good. I would recommend the place if you could guarantee that there was going to be no party and huge sound system in service at the bar down the road but if you couldn't guarantee that I would look elsewhere. Which is a shame because another venue shouldn't be ruining your stay.

I am very sorry to hear that one of your party had to go elsewhere during your stay. We have no control over the noise levels on the island and it is has been an ongoing thing with one particular bar. We have no control over when they will play their music or when they won't. I'm glad that everything else seemed good with your visit. My apologies again, but out of my control.

“Beautiful villa in great part of Gilli T”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

person found this review helpful

A really stunning villa which comfortably holds 8. Excellent staff on site to help with everything you need. The location is excellent as it's close enough to the action to be convenient but you can't hear any noise. Beds were lovely and comfy with mossie nets. If I had to give constructive feedback I'd just say that the prices for the beers at the villa were more expensive than the hotels (and we got through a lot!). Had a wonderful time (if it had a pool it would be 100% perfect but the beach is very close).

“Didn't want to leave”
Reviewed November 3, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

person found this review helpful

I was absolutely blown away by the stay at the villa. We didn't really know what to expect and after something of an epic journey (3 flights, 2 cars, speedboat and a horse cart) we arrived to the most beautiful villa i've ever stayed in. We had 7 nights and 6 full days on Gilli T and it was just wonderful.
The villa has 5 bedrooms but only 4 bathrooms that you walk through the bedrooms to get to. So if you are in the 5th bedroom (which i think is the best!) you have to share a bathroom with someone downstairs.
The house was clean and Lans and his crew looked after us from hiring bikes, to organising snorkelling trips and suggesting places to go for meals. ( We liked Scallywags and the Beachhouse)
Breakfast was included and it was phenomenal served from 8am to 10am you could order pancakes, egg (in a variety of ways) and there was fresh fruit and toast, coffee, tea and freshly squeezed juice. The banana pancakes are to die for! My only suggestion here might be that some cereal would be a good option but it may be difficult to get. We had planned to self cater but that wasn't easy to do as there is no kitchen in the villa but we ate out every night for a very reasonable price of about $10 (AUD) a head - including drinks.
Overall, it was the most wonderful, relaxing holiday and we will definitely be returning next year!

After hunting for accommodation once arriving on the island, we came across Hari Pari. We stayed 4 nights in one of the guesthouses. We loved everything about Hari Puri, the friendly staff, the delicious breakfasts and the peace and quiet. My partner enjoyed playing a game of soccer with some of the staff and local children. Hari Puri is a perfect distance from the main strip of restaurants and bars, we slept soundly every night and never heard any late night music. Our room and bathroom was clean and tidy and the grounds are kept immaculate. After 2 weeks in Indonesia, staying in plenty of different places, we can easily say Hari Puru was our favourite and can say with confidence, we'll be back!

Hi Gina, I'm so glad that you and your partner enjoyed Hari Puri Guest Houses. We love it there too! It is very quiet, even though we are close by the restaurants and bars on the island. Thanks for your review, and please let me know directly if you do decide to book our accommodation again.

“Lovely villa, some communication challenges, over-priced services”
Reviewed July 14, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

I organized this trip with a group of friends and two of us had traveling and worked in Indonesia extensively, and we've visited a lot of country - enough to speak a bit of the language and know how the country works (or in some cases doesn't). Overall we had a very good experience on the island and with Hari Puri - but a few simple changes could have made our stay much better. We'd strongly recommend the villa publish a list of "things to know" for future guests, as this would have avoided several of our issues, especially since the owner - who was very helpful and responsive - does not live on the island. The positive: beautiful and well-kept grounds. Spacious, largely open-air villa that is a little ways from the bars and town center, with an absolutely amazing beach across the street. Villa staff (Nans is the resident manager) are very polite and friendly. Breakfast is very good. A/c and hot water work well and the villa has its own generator when the power goes out. Comfortable furnishings. The negative: Linens are a bit worn - most everything had stains or holes and the first night my room was missing a sheet and we didn't realize it until all the staff had gone to bed. Beach towels are in good space but bath towels need to be replaced. We had a few frustrating interactions with staff. They were supposed to meet us at the boat when we arrived but nobody showed up. we waited for nearly 30 minutes and then could only get 1 donkey and cart as they were all taken by other people who had arrived, so we sent the luggage and we walked. Nans (the manager) said he was too busy to come, which would have been fine, but a text or email to that effect would have gotten our trip off to a better start. We also had asked about staff arranging a bbq but we didn't realize that meant a bill that was higher than what we would pay eating out. Nans indicated he and his wife had cooked the dinner but the itemized bill for the food was in excess of nice local restaurant prices for what we got, so we didn't eat in the villa after that. We had hoped the Nans could help us with arranging a charter boat, which he was very happy to do but his best price (1.4, down from 1.8 when he realized we would compare) was almost twice what we paid by organizng ourselves. I don't mind paying a convienece premium - usually about 20% in Indonesia - but nobody wants ot feel like they are being ripped off, so we didn't rely on Nans for help with any planning after that. We had a similar problem with the bikes on the last days. Nans had asked if we would use bikes the first day, I said we probably would, and assumed he meant the villa had them. He set the bikes out front for us. We didn't know until the last day they were rental bikes, and when we were surprised by the bill (50k per bike per day), he immiediately changed the bill to 35k per bike per day. I don't think we would have objected to 50k but again, that should have been made clear at the outset. Other points to know: the villa will make wonderful banana pancakes for breakfast but for some reason these weren't offered til our fourth day there, same for laundry - they'll do your laundry and apparently it's incldued, we just didn't realize it. bring earplugs - the one night of the week the nearest bar had its all-night bar the villa bed were still shaking from the music at 6 am. no exaggeration. but the all-night party changes location every night so it only affected us one night. the villa/island are not really condusive to any self-catering. there are limited places to buy groceries and fresh fish (we like to cook) but the kitchen is separate from the villa. it is a 15 minute walk or so back to the pier, so you'll want to rent bikes. the bathrooms are outdoors and the villa has beauitful wooden doors that don't seal tightly so I do recommend misquito coils or the plugs-ins. the 5th bedroom upstairs in the villa does not have a/c and is open-air. if you are severly allergic or afraid of cats, this is not the island for you - they are everywhere, including on the property. friendly and seemingly harmless. We dove with Manta Divers while on the island and they were very good. Nearby Scalliwags restaurant is excellent. Gili Trawangan has a reasonable nightlife - anyone seeking something quiet and a bit more remote should consider Gili Air, which is also lovely.

Dear Jessica,
Thank you for your detailed response to our failings on Hari Puri! I acknowledge and tick most of them, apart from the bedding and towels. Having bought all the towels and bedding over from Ikea in Singapore myself, I know exactly what goes on the beds. Perhaps there might have been a small hole in one sheet or a slight stain in the corner of another, but I doubt it was major. I literally just bought over 4 suitcases full of towels (admitedly, most were beach towels) - but I am staggered as I've just seen them in my room and they are fine.
My manager has been with us since day 1 and yes, perhaps he is set in his ways and maybe goes to the same person to ask for a boat trip. Of course these guys will try to up the price, especially in high season. You are right in what you say that we should have a booklet of what we offer as services and just keep the price up to date - i.e. trips on as boat for snorkelling, etc, etc - and I will do this, thanks for reinforcing this, as I know it is very important. I am also telling my staff off for apparently not giving you the breakfast menu which is supposed to be here on the table every morning. I am very sorry about that. I in no way would like my guests to feel ripped off (esp as we are supposed to be cheaper than anywhere else on the island with the food!) and I apologise very sincerely for that and I will make sure it doesn't happen again.
