“Paradise ”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful villas away from village !!! Great service - everything you need to chill out and relax . It's in the center of the island so bikes are provided . Dangerous to get back to at night time , so stay on groups just in case ! However if you use villa to the max you have little need to leave it !! Great masseuse and barbecue service !!!;)

We arrived in Gili Trawangan after spending four days in Seminyak. The boat ride was less than pleasant, due to the strong waves of the day, so we were happy to finally arrive at the Kelapa Villas. There was a little miscommunication in the booking, but the staff took care of it right away and before we knew it we were in our villa. Three friends and I stayed in a 2-bedroom villa with a private pool, which was absolute heaven.

Our original plan was to do more activities and enjoy the nightlife of Gili T, but upon walking into our accommodation, we didn't want to leave--the villa was so relaxing and peaceful! We spent most of our days in and out of the pool or laying around on the couch in the open air living room. The food was also very delicious, and we had room service for most of our meals.

None of us had any complaints about the villa. The staff was extremely helpful and when we asked for late checkout the day before leaving, had no qualms about giving it to us, which allowed us to relax even more. We all commented that the staff went out of their way to to fulfill all of our requests, from showing us how to turn off the lights at night, to making sure we had everything we needed at each meal.

If you have a group, make sure to book a BBQ. We did on our last night and it was so delicious and a great way to end our time in Gili T.

We stayed in the Kelapa Villas on Gili T for our honeymoon. We had quite a long journey to get there which was a 1.5 hour flight from Bali to Lombok, a 2 hour car journey, a 10 minute speed boat ride and then another 10 minutes in a horse and cart (there are no motorized vehicles on the Gili islands)! When we arrived though it was well worth the journey. We were greeted by the very friendly staff who showed us to our room and took our cases for us. We were given a tour of the beautiful villa which had been decorated with flowers, rose petals and swan/rabbit shaped towels. The fridge was very well stocked with a large range of drinks and they provided bikes to us free of charge to get around the islands during our stay. The villas are well located for the quiet North and West beaches, and only a 1km cycle ride or walk to the shops and restaurants on the East of the island. The bikes came in really handy for getting around and they will supply bike locks and lights for a returnable deposit.

After we had checked in, we were presented with a beautiful boat made of fruit and fresh young coconuts to drink. They left us to it and we decided to explore the villa a bit more. The bedrooms were inside a building along the side and had good air conditioning. Through a door at the back of each bedroom you reached an en-suite bathroom which was outside and had a lovely garden in it. Complimentary luxurious coconut based toiletries were provided every day. Outside the front of the bedrooms was a 10m infinity pool which was beautifully clean and inviting.

Off the bedroom building was a roof structure which covered the kitchen/dining/living area - the structure was open sided but bamboo roller shutters were available to close down the sides if we needed them. There were ceiling fans in the roof structure to help keep us cool and they were quite effective. The only problem with the partially outside room was that if we had any leftover food (particularly fruit) we had to be careful to put it away in the fridge or in the bin very quickly before the ants/birds descended on it! This was a small price to pay for such a lovely environment.

The villa and pool was cleaned every day and we always had lots of clean towels available. The cleaning staff were always very cheerful and friendly. The villas offer a very cheap laundry service which we made use of mid way through the holiday. Your clothes come back after a couple of days.

During our stay the concierge service was brilliant. All the staff were really helpful and they were happy to organise trips for us including transport. For transport on Lombok, either for airport transfers or for days out, they use an associate travel company who organise the speed boat crossing and the car to wherever you want to go to, as well as guides. Our driver on each occasion was called Ayron (I hope I spelled that right!) and he was exceptionally helpful and friendly and gave us loads of ideas for activities. He knows Lombok like the back of his hand and was an excellent driver. We would definitely recommend asking for him when booking any Lombok car travel via the villas.

We ate a few meals in our villa when we didn't feel like going out. The food was always well prepared and very tasty. They had a good range of both local and western options. One of our favourites was the BBQ where they brought the BBQ into your apartment and cooked and served your choices for you. The breakfast choices were English/American breakfast, which was lovely, continental (consisting of toast with jam/butter and pastries), or Nasi Goreng. You ordered this the night before for whatever time you wanted it the next morning, and they would bring it to the villa and set it all out for you. The dishes could then be left in the sink and they would wash up or take the dishes away the following morning.

As we had booked the honeymoon package at Kelapa, we had certain 'extras' included in our stay. These included a full body massage each carried out in our apartment, a 3 course meal and wine also served in our apartment, and a private snorkeling trip which took us out on a boat with a guide and visited 3 different places around the Gili islands to see giant turtles, tropical fish and the coral reefs. This was an amazing experience and we travelled back as the sun was setting behind the islands which was beautiful. The price for the package was exceptionally good value and we would definitely recommend it.

We had a fantastic time at the Kelapa Villas and they really made our honeymoon an unforgettable experience. We would recommend them to anybody and we would love to go back some time.

We were a group of six who were fortunate enough to stay in Villa Marina.
With a large swimming pool, gardens and living, dinning area we felt like we were staying in a mansion. There was a large daybed and enough deck chairs for everyone and the rooms were spacious, well designed and clean. I loved the outdoor bathrooms and the geckos hiding behind the mirror :-)
The staff were friendly and attentive and the breakfasts (although sometimes misunderstood when ordering) were delicious and would satisfy anyone with a large appetite.
Kelapa was a distance away from the main strip but you are supplied with complimentary bikes and I enjoyed the ride after a night out eating great food at the many different restaurants to choose from, we also found that the best snorkelling off the beach was much closer to Kelapa anyway so it was more convenient during the day.
The staff made our stay so enjoyable we decided to throw a party for them and everyone had a fantastic time. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for their own little piece of paradise to unwind in.

Very nice and we will be back if we go again to on of the gili's we had a 2 bedroom villa with private pool. we stayed only one night for 250usd, the food we ordered was great, BBQ menu also available but need to be ordered 24h in advance, first and main courses where all delivered at the same time, so you can better order in parts because they are quick anyway.

Room Tip: ask for beds that are not noicy and make sure the hot water works.

What a treat! Loved cycling about! Beautiful night skies with a blanket of stars. Not to mention the awesome snorkelling and diving! Gilis have a lot to offer. Glad to have stayed a bit away from the main drag at kelapa. The villas are very private and impeccably clean. What more do u need?

Staff - Brilliant! Very helpful and couldn't do enough for us.

Villa - immaculate and a great pool! Lovely open area between the living area and the pool. Great for a couple or small group. Very, very quiet and peaceful.

Location - quite a way out, fine for us as we are all fit and healthy but a pain if you can't be bothered to cycle and just want a quick walk. Very close to the sunset beach but further away from the main strip. This meant it was very quiet though which was ace.

Gym - only weights and old ones at that, but it was air conditioned. There is also a Tennis Court although we didnt use it.

Food - okay range of choice from the room service menu, greta breakfast. Plenty of food was included.

Bikes - strange that it was a 3 bedroom villa yet it only came with four bikes! there were five of us so we had to hire another one. Not happy about that as it is a bit of a walk away to get anywhere.

Improvements - needs an ipod docking station for playing music and more traditional Balinese food on the room service menu.
