We stayed here for 5 nights in early September, and were so happy to have chosen Gili Joglo for our base on the Gili's. It was an oasis, so quiet and peaceful. Some of the things we were worrying about before we arrived, such as the noise from the infamous parties, or from the local mosque's, were non-existent. We were spoilt for 5 nights!
The villa itself is a great space, particularly for either two couples, or a larger family, as both bedrooms have their own bathrooms, and the living area is a great communal space that opens out to a lovely courtyard. The beach is literally a minute's walk away, and probably the best beach on the island. Our little boy loved the horse and carts, and we would definitely recommend hiring a glass bottom boat for a snorkelling tour. If your budget can stretch that far, get a private boat rather than a group tour, as they tend to squeeze 20 people onto the small boats.
The reason I gave this 4 stars is that the villa probably needs a bit of a spruce up (given that it’s marketed as a 4 star property), particularly the bathrooms, as they look a bit tired. However, that's being very picky, and it certainly didn't affect our holiday in any way.
Overall, a great place to base yourself on the island, if you’re looking for an oasis away from the hustle and bustle.....
