Without a doubt, Samata Village Gili Air was the best place we have ever stayed at. It all started with staff welcoming us at the harbor and helping us carry the luggage to the resort. The location is perfect, just one minute walk to the beach and nearby restaurants. The bungalows are super clean and stilishly decorated, everything is brand new. The whole garden/pool area was so beautiful and neatly maintained. We were so amazed by the most kind and attentive staff. They made our bed twice a day, everytime with another lovely origami towel art and left us a kind messages on the sticky notes. The breakfast was tasty and fresh, they even offered us a complementary afternoon tea/coffee with desert. We would highly recommend Samata to all looking for a place to relax and enjoy!

After we left Gili Meno earlier then we plannend because of the terrible accommodations on the island and not worth for your money, a lot of mosquitos and we where attacked in daytime, and in the sea bitten by little shrimps or sea flea's?
We decide to leave Meno and move on to Air. So we booked last min this really fantastic bungalow boutique resort. When we entered we get the best welcome drink we have in weeks, fresh cumcumber/honeymelon juice. The bungalow's on the left side of the swimming pool has really good finished rooftop, room and half open shower. It looks stunning! Inside you can close the bathroom door so no bug is coming inside. I didn't see any bugs at all in the room or outside, so I really love this place! We were here wit our child of 3 years and she loved, breakfast (pancakes, fruit or toast) and mommy had the nasi goreng, and daddy the scrammbeld eggs and fruit. Fresh juice and coffee.
Especially i had lactose free meals/drinks they had for me soy milk for my coffee (just ask in your booking and they will arranges anything you like)
The swimming pool was great and clean, not filled full of bleach but natural water. It's not cold because it warms up in the sun. So my girl love to play in it.
The wifi is great in the restaurant, not in the rooms (they will work on it) and there is no fridge in the room but then it will be a 5 star accommodation.:) It gets 3 star, I don't now why? We stayed in 5 star hotels and resorts, but this one was the best hospitallity we had in the whole month of traveling in Indonesia. (Bali and Java)
They made a little poppet from towels for my daughter when we came back from dinner and put it on the bed. They made up our bed twice a day;) and bring us when we had showed after swimming, new towels again in the bathroom without asking;-))) I really love the details of this boutique hotel/resort/bungelows.
Ask a bungalow on the left side of the pool, the other side has an water installation on the backside of the open shower, (when you want to make a picture to the stars, you see this, but if you don't take pictures, then you have nothing to worry about;)
The rooftop inside has on the left side is better finished then the other side. We looked at both bungalows.
Did I say that they have new sun beds and fresh towels around the pool??
So the are new, and open! I say, the best we can get on the island!
It's 2-3 min walk through an big alley to reach the beach and the cozy restaurants at the beach, you can Bring a buggy/stroller here!!
We were lucky enough to be the first people to stay in the new Samata Village on Gili Air.
Location is only 50m from beach but still secluded and quiet.
Had a great 5 night stay. Lovely well appointed & spacious rooms, pool & grounds. Staff were excellent - very friendly & efficient. Food was also excellent & good value too. Would definitely stay again - Thanks!
It's a new property in Gili Air, but we found the staff was very friendly and the environment is so relaxing. We enjoy everyday with the delicious food and beverages. Amazing place!!!
