“Loved it!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We stayed at Casa Mio for 2 nights. This is what I consider one of the best accommodation I ever experienced. The location is superb (on the beach). The bungalows, as well as the "reception / restaurant" are are quite charming, colourful and with an "Indie" touch which make them special. This place is elegance not based on luxury but on the artistic personal touch of the owner. The place also has cabanas on the beach and a restaurant / dining area which is definitely the best on the island for chill out and relax. Richard (the owner) as well as the staff are all super friendly. I would be able to spend a month here and feel like at home. I'm not able to think about any cons. Small suggestion: when you arrive at Gili Air by boat, don't pick the horse to reach Casa Mio unless you are with really heavy trolley. If you have a backpack, Casa Mio is a 10min walk from the harbour (not worth paying the horse)

Room Tip: All 4 bungalows are good. Nothing to worry

We stayed at Casa Mio for 2 nights at the end of May 2013. From the moment we stopped to have a look at the rooms we were made to feel welcome and part of Richards family. The hotel is small amd private with its focus on eco friendly procedures, clenliness, freshness of food and best of all FRESH GROUND COFFEE!!! The atmosphere was always relaxed, the staff were very attentive and friendly and the grounds and rooms were kept perfect. We stayed in the small room up the back of the hotel, it is a little smaller...but more private than the main villas so it was perfect for us. All rooms had all the mod cons you would need including a large fridge to keep your drinks cold. The dinners we had in the restaurant were fantastic, the breakfast was more than we needed and as I said the coffee was great!!! All the hotel staff deserve a mention, they were very helpfull, sweet and attentive, espesially Ata, what a cool dude!! We would love to return one day to this stunning gem on Gili Air...the island of freedom and paradise. We took lots of pics but unfortunatly left our camera in the taxi on the way to the airport. ;(

Fantastic place on Gili Air. Owner and staff couldn't have been more welcoming, helpful and friendly. A great spot, away from the hustle and bustle of the main "tourist area" but only a short walk away. Lovely villas, incredibly spacious and really well looked after. Nice little pool and great open air sea view 'huts/beds' for whiling away the hours. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Choose the 'Ocean of Love' villa!

The best location on Gili Air: view on Lombok, Gili Meno, Gili Air and Bali. The sunset here is amazing... We could spend all day long sitting in the cafe/restaurant admiring the landscape. It has direct and private access to the sea, and is located in the south of the island in a quiet and relaxing area (but only 10 minutes walk from harbor and most cafes/restaurants and other accommodations).
Rooms are cute with pure style of the region, they are comfortable and clean, with outdoor bathroom and toilets (100% nature), nice garden and pool. Good facilities (AC, modern TV and hi-fi, fridge, safety box).
Staff is very cool, friendly and helpful. It is a plus for this hotel.
Breakfast is tasty, generous and varied. Restaurant is quite good.
Though, the room rate was quite expensive while we were not during the high season.

Room Tip: We were in the "Ocean of love" room and it was nice, we did not try the other rooms...

We had 9 perfect nights at Casa Mio, booked 6 and after 2 days decided to extend, best decision ever. Casa Mio is a standout and by far our most memorable accommodation after many trips throughout Bali and the outer islands, making the whole Gili Air experience worth repeating. In all our trips we have never gone back to the same place twice but might be time to break with tradition.
Richard and Tanya run an excellent business where nothing is too much trouble. The service we received from them was 1st class and genuine. All the staff made us feel welcome, Ata always smiling and waving as he went about his business, the Indonesian lessons from Min when he brought us food and drink were a highlight for my wife and his last word was always “enjoy” which we did quite often.
We walked around the island (1 hour) and Casa Mio has the best location, the rooms are big and comfortable, a really nice refreshing pool with view of restaurant and beach, nice gardens, great restaurant on the beach with magic views of Lombok, Gili Meno, Gili T and Mt Agung (Bali). The sunsets from here are awesome and the music was excellent which really set the ambience. The food is unbelievable, so much so that after day 3 we decided there was nowhere better to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. Mix all that together and you have a holiday to remember.
To sum up, Casa Mio ticked more boxes than we thought we had. It’s the complete package for us. If you need a daily programme to keep yourself occupied don’t bother. Gili Air is not for everyone which is great. Hopefully the masses stay away, preserving the island for those who appreciate the simple things in life.
Casa Mio, sepuluh out of sepuluh!

Stay here with the recommodation of our friends who visited here last August.
Very impressed with the room style ,we loved the atmosphere and the decotation of the beach restaurant and the room we stayed (The ocean of Love)
Staffs are friendly and very helpful.
Good location with white sand beach,quite and peaceful !!

The sunset time(around 17:30) is amazing !!,with the full view of Mt.Agung(Bali) and the other twi gili islands,gili dream is our favorite cocktail while we sitting on the sunset beach for sunset.

the foods are great and nice decorated and presented, try delicious grilled fish on the sunset beach.

Tanya/Richard and her staffs did a good job to keep the good service standard.

We went to casa mio for lunch and were very dispointed with this place.
The food was not good, we ordered mi goreng which is the most basic indonesian food and it had no flavour, was red colour and a small portion. We also had club sandwich which was not good, weird chicken inside, bread not toasted, anyway, the food is not good.
Then we asked for the wifi password, and the staff (who was laying in hamac) was not able to help me, they said that the boss was not here so they did not know the password... I asked them to call their boss, but it was not possible, why ?! They really did not want to help.
Finally, we could not use the swimming pool because it was only for guests, it is the only place like this in Indonesia !
Maybe you are more welcome if you stay in the hotel but if you are just here for lunch, don t expect to feel good in Casa Mio !

Hi
First we'll want to thank you for coming here for ordered fried noodle and the club sandwich,and there are some important issue to clarify your posting:
1.all of our toast and breads are stored in our refrigerator to keep fresh before taken out to kitchen,so we are sure that all toast has to be toasted before served,we never served cold toast to any of our visiting guests!!,as for the fried noodle,we served same portion to everyone (so as you) with same standard potion since we established this restaurant 13 years ago(founded in 1999).
we served only the fresh food materials to our guests so as the chicken and the organic rice and vegetables.

For keeping good quality internet connection without abused use of our bandwidth ----- NO FREE WIFI at our beach restaurant : There is a big sign in front our restaurant entrance(a BIG sign to make sure every one can see and understand) that we don't provide FREE WIFI ,and there is a rate listed CLEARLY on the big sign,we assumed that you didn;t saw our 80CM x 60CM BIG sign in front of our restaurant entrance or should you leave your email address so we can sent you a photo of the big sign?

And we don't have any obligation to provide FREE swimming pool for you,the pool is exclusively for in house guests who stay in our Villa only,not open for public.,we assumed you like our swimming poo welll,please be sure to book the room first so we can offering the full service (FREE wifi and FREE pool as well)yo you and your family.

Hope this clarify your posting well,

thank for your understanding and offering us a chance to serve you
