“Fear and Loathing in Gili Trawangan !”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

Delightful hospitality and sincere kindness , cannot recommend this place highly enough, we all felt very welcome and at ease. Room was always clean and immaculately maintained. Cannot thank Dian and Kadi enough for making us feel at home, looking after us (even after being out all night!) Lovely people with a great natural chemistry with their visitors and clearly a real desire to ensure the Gili T experience is as inspiring as it is unforgettable. Nick, Rich and Will Keep the Bintangs flowing! (Stopped 8/10/11 - 17/10/11)

According to me there are some amount of exaggeration on the comments on positive side but the hospitality and personal approach of Dian (the host) turns the small shortcomings to negligible one... But be informed that with a bit higher rate you can find beach front bungalows a bit away from the centrum with same or better physical conditions but for sure not the Dian's hospitality...

Dian and his wife are really really nice! The (4) rooms are clean and big. The sheets will be changed if you stay longer than three or four days. Breakfast is included and the banana pancake is delicious. You will feel very welcome here!

The place is great. A little bit in the back do you can sleep quietly and walk to the beach and restaurants in a minute. We really enjoyed our stay here!

My wife and I stayed at Rumah Kundun for several nights. Kade and Dian were genuinely kind and friendly hosts, and were very helpful in helping to arrange and negotiate a boat to Gili Trawangan before meeting, and at a better price than we got through other inquiries. I felt very comfortable having them help us with trip recommendations, as they were genuine and trustworthy. We've had experiences at other lodging where we were nickel-and-dimed throughout our stay, not so at Rumah Kundun.

The rooms were spacious enough and although the particular room we stayed in had some flaking paint, it didn't bother us. Apparently that room will be repainted again soon, however.

If you are interested in value, you won't go wrong with the hospitality of Kade (kah-day) and Dian (dee-ann).

Kade invited us to come and check out his guesthouse. We decided to have a look and immdediately dropped our baggs because the inviting atmosphere and lovely people make you feel instantly at home.

We will be back some day!

Greetings,

Ties & Shirley

I stayed 10 days at Rumah Kundun. From the minute I arrived I felt at home. Kade is very nice, helpful, and bakes the best banana pancakes I had in Indonesia! Besides the friendly staff, the room is spacious, clean, and the beds have good matrasses. You can ask to change sheets, clean the room again, everything is possible. The place looks very nice with a Balinese garden with Balinese statues and offerings. Highly recommended!

I stayed at Rumah Kundun after friends of mine told me about it. Its the best place i stayed at in whole Indonesia. The nicest people you would ever meet. Great rooms with the best breakfast, nice and quiet. good to chill out after a party at the beach. I went back to Gili afther a while and of course stayed at Rumah Kundun again. If your looking fore a place to stay at Gili T, this is the place your looking for. Terima Kasih, Jacky.

Room Tip: there are just 4 rooms, and there al lovely.
