We were so excited about coming to Gili Air as we'd heard such good things about it.
Arriving at Omah Gili we discovered that they are expanding and currently building new accommodation as it is currently low season. Having come from a hotel in Ubud that was tranquility personified, this was hugely disappointing. We had planned to stay for 8 days and had paid 50% deposit before arriving. It was policy for the hotel to take the remainder on check-in. I informed them that we were not going to pay the balance but would stay for the 4 nights and make a decision on the remainder after we had stayed a few nights. We were told that was not possible, either we they refunded us our deposit and we find somewhere else to stay, or pay in full and stay the 8 nights. After some 'discussion' we managed to convince them this wasn't a reasonable situation and we did indeed stay for the 4 nights.
The hotel is nice enough, the rooms are a bit dark but in good condition and the outdoor bathroom was nice.
To be fair to Omah, there is a lot of building on Gili Air at the moment in preparation for the high season which is understandable. We were just very disappointed because were looking for somewhere to really unwind and relax and you can't do that with the sound of construction in the background.
One other little thing, it really isn't acceptable to be sweeping the floors outside peoples rooms at 6.30am.
If it wasn't for the building work, I'd probably upgrade my review to 3-4 stars.
