Sunrise Resort
Ranked #4 of 20 Hotels in Gili Air
Reviewed August 8, 2012 via mobile

We stayed with our 2 teenage sons for 5 nights in this busy and adequate location. Our sleeping quarters (bungalow $75/night) were 2 double beds squeezed into the top floor of our bungalow (see photo). This was challenging, especially with 2 messy teenagers! The bathroom was basic - toilet didn't flush, no hot water (see photo) and minimal comfort!
We escaped for one night on our own to 'the villa' ($100/night), which was luxurious in comparison (see bathroom photo).
Whilst the staff were friendly and hotel well located, the lack of space, privacy and general comfort (not to forget no Wifi in hotel) makes it not great value.

Great location by the beach (with good snorkelling), about 5-10 minutes walk from the jetty and plenty of bars and restaurants around. Lovely quiet setting in beautiful tropical gardens. Comfortable rooms and beds (with good mosquito nets) and a nice balcony. Bathrooms could be a bit cleaner but OK (cold shower only but not really a problem in the hot climate). Staff very courteous, friendly and helpful. Good breakfasts served overlooking the beach - a lovely start to the day!

Despite the bug spray and mosquito nets, I was greeted with about 50 bites on my 5 nights stay here. Paid 75 usd a night incl bfast for 3 pax - bathrooms are awful, food is average. There appears a lot of effort into the gardens and stylish details, with rooms and in particular - bathrooms- coming last in priority. There are many far superior accom options very nearby at better prices. I will say that the staff were lovely though - not sure about how much the actual owner cares for the wellbeing and comfort of the guests though.

I stayed at the Sunrise Cottages & Restaurant on June 2012 and was delighted with the place. I travelled with 2 friends and stayed at a deluxe bungalow; very clean, peaceful and surrounded by beautiful gardens. The room in the upper floor had AC and a small balcony overlooking the gardens. The staff was friendly and we got a good deal for three nights. The restaurant was one of the best on the island with a very good breakfast, right in front of the beach. They also have an excellent diving center with highly qualified dive masters and rental of snorkeling gear. The only problem we had was that their wifi service was down during our stay. I would definitely recommend it!

Very good hotel for those, who are in search of natural resort as it is. It has no TV, no Wi-Fi, no luxury hints, but it has comfort. Two-stored bungalows are situated not far from harbor, in some kind of forest on one side of road, one the other side is a restaurant right on a beach terrace, where breakfast is served. The standard bungalow has no aircon, but we very enough with ventilator. Hotel staff is extremely friendly and polite, everybody is smiling and asking if everything is OK or you need something.
As for me, this hotel is a great entrance to island's facilities, from snorkeling to dining - all is just around. But if you need much more than just a bamboo bungalow to be in comfort, like marble floors or satelite TV, or you are disturbed by birds singing at sunrise - don't mind this hotel.
As for the island - it's imposible to describe - visit is a must. We'll be back, for sure, to this island and this hotel.

Stayed in Sunrise resort in Feb 2012 with my mother. I loved the layout of the place and all the trees around the bungalows. I had a delux 2 floor bungalow with a nice bedroom and a terrace upstairs, and a sitting room with a table, sofa and a hammock downstairs. The room was cleaned daily and they would always leave flowers on the bed and on the dining table.

Restaurant was right on the beach in front of the resort and we really liked the food so we ate there almost every day.

You could rent the snorkeling equipment and book all your trips right from the resort which was very convinient.

Perfect location, 5 min from the pier and right next to all the restaurants and bars.

we booked here through agoda and got a good deal of $20 a night,we were delighted on arrival with the nice gardens and friendly staff. Unfortunately it didn't stay like this. On arrival i noticed there was no fan downstairs even tho there was the remote for one and every other cottage had one.I asked the staff and they told me one would be in the room within a hour,however the hour came and went and so did 6days with 4 requests all resulting in the same response.If they didnt have one thats all they needed to say. We had the same problem with the toilet it was broken,constantly leaking and unable to flush. Same story with getting it fixed,even tho this i asked to be fixed every day with no result,other then "oh was it not fixed yet" just annoying after 4 days. Also there was some sort of creature living in our bedroom,it came out one of the many holes in the ceiling and left us its mark every night, a big enough ones too, which made sleeping a bit awkward not knowing what was fumbling around. The final nail,was a staff member randomly coming up to us and telling us about how little he earned and how he needed some more money to give to his family,we found this fairly rude and inappropriate,as he came to our cottage with this story,thinking we'd give him the $30(which he even said would be easy for us to give him) he wanted.We found our stay uncomfortable after this and if we hadn't paid up front for the week we would of left after a night.

Room Tip: Cottage number 8 is the short straw
