“We had a good time here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

We happened to find this place with a very good price, whilst taking a walk around the island. The employees gave us the air-con room for Rp. 200,000/night without bargaining, whilst other nearby places requested Rp. 400,000. The room is clean and bright. We were a bit surprised that the bathroom is spacious.
We had a nice room, with air conditioner, looking at the garden, full of ocean breeze, and sunlight.
Breakfast is good and you can enjoy it next to the ocean.
If the TV wasn't broken and they had desalinated water, this place would be perfect.
The staff, and especially the owner, Andi are very nice.
If you don't mind walking to the north west side of the island, far from the congested area near the harbour, I highly recommend this place.

Very nice place to stay at Gili Air, on the North of the island. Bungalow with beach view.. and quiet area. It is a little far from the 'main strip with bars and restaurants) but with a bycycle it is easy.
Rooms were clean and spacious. Ali the manager, very kind and helpful.

As soon they cant sell you expensive boat tickets they change their friendly atmosphere. By tickets at the harbour! Also they cant remember the discussed price for the bungalow;~) tries to bargin with you again when to pai for the bill! Fix your price and deposit on a bill!

Bintang beach bungalows provide rooms and bungalows for both the budget traveler and the honeymooners. I stayed at the cheapest room which included a marvelous breakfast and the room was super clean with towels and toilet paper provided and the bathroom had western WC and a shower with fresh water (given that it's not common in budget accommodation in the Gilis) The location is beautiful and the cafe serves a variety of western and indonesian food for affordable prices. My favourite was the amazing seafood pizza baked in a wood-stone oven.
Ali, the allrounder makes the experience very pleasant for all guests but the owners don't have much of an idea in guest relations to be honest. I witnessed the sister of the owner arguing with a German couple because they had booked a room on the internet and she was saying that there was a mistake and the deluxe rooms were all taken. Ali sorted it out in an instance, if she wasn't there, there'd be no arguments because Ali would have solved the problem without letting the guests know, now that's professionalism. Great place all in all. Next door there's a Spanish bar which serves paella, tapas and coctails and great view of sunset from Bintant beach too.

The best place to stay in Gili Air, perfect sunsets and perfect atmosphere. For globe-trotters is beautiful when is not high season, I stayed there from the end onf May to June and after the 10th a different type of tourists was settling there.
Ali is very kind and nice to everybody, the family who own the place is not very open but luckily there is Ali! Good price and very good Urap Urap!

Stayed on Bintang Beach Bungalows TWICE. Ali is the most kind and helpful person ever. He will always talk to you, despite being busy. The rooms are clean and right next to the lovely peaceful beach. There are a good variety of rooms to meet all budgets - some have aircon and some have a fan. The breakfast (which is included) is good and the wood oven pizzas are amazing. A great place to watch the sunset also.
To find the Bintang Bungalows, you pay 50,000 rupiah for horse&cart to take you from the harbour to the NORTH-WEST of the Island. Or you can walk 30 mins, just go right and follow around. Its next to the Spanish Restaurant and 5 mins past Legends Bar. Avoid staying around the harbour which is disgusting. It so busy/dirty on the harbour that its starting to look like Gili Trawangan! Avoid!

We stayed at Bintang bungalows for 5 nights which was more than we planned but we loved it.
We payed RP 120,000 (low season after some bargaining) for a really big, really light room.
Our bed was comfortable with a good mosquito net.
The beach was 10 meters from our veranda where there were tables and benches for relaxing and also where breakfast was served.
Breakfast was amazing. A choice of 5 options including a really good fruit salad and a hot drink.
the only downside is that the harbour is a half an hour walk. (50RP in a "taxi")
And the bar connected to the breakfast area playing dance music 24/7. It wasn't unbearably loud. Just a little irritating.
I would definitely recommend bintang bungalows. Gili air was my favorite of the three islands.
