“A place to sit down, relax and enjoy the view!”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

We stayed for 3 days at casa mio and it was really good. The hotel is very cute with lots and lots of nice touches and excellent decor. Our room was the sea breeze cottage which was at the bottom of the hotel and felt like the ugly child and I wish we had stayed in one of the larger cottages (there are only 4 in total) but they were fully booked.

The service in the hotel was extremely attentive and the manager was very helpful and nice, always making sure we wee enjoying our stay. The pool is a bit small but its fresh water, which is a rarety in the island, but it was very good to relax after a hot day. The restaurant area is beautiful with lots of lfunky and relaxing seats and the whole place is a bliss.

The location was not great, if you want to stay near the action in the island i would suggest the other side close to chillout bar - where the beach is also better as the beach in front of the hotel not great as its in front of a bay enclosed by a reef so its very very shallow and lots of corals. Getting around in horse carts is also not very cheap - min 50000 RP which is a lot for a 5 min horse cart ride.

overall the staff were very attentive and they even gave us a good bye cocktail on our last day. The food at dinner wasnt the best I've had and a bit pricey so we ate in other places most of the time, the breakfast in the other hand was really good and plentiful - they have a waffle machine and they were awesome.

Great place for a relaxing holiday!

Room Tip: try and stay in the bigger cottages as the ocean breeze is a bit small and a bit of a let down compa...

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!

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.
