TravelPod's Snapshot

Looking for a laid back beach bungalow in Indonesia just steps from the ocean? Sama-Sama Bungalows offer guests a low-key retreat in lovely Lombok with all the essential amenities and services guests need for a relaxing beach getaway. The 11 uniquely decorated bungalows and beach huts are clustered around the lively Sama Sama Beer Garden, a breezy beach bar featuring eclectic live music each evening and into each night.

The Sama-Sama Bungalows are located on Gili Trawangan, fondly referred to as Gili T by locals and tourists, the most cosmopolitan of the Gili Islands. There is a lively bar and restaurant scene that perfectly complements the lazy languor of long days at the beach. Boats are available to ferry guests across the Lombok Straight to Bali. The Sama-Sama Bungalows are near the island's main thoroughfare, notable for its horse carts, bikes, and bikini-clad tourists. Guest reviews frequently mention the property's superb location.

The Sama-Sama Bungalows feature free Wi-Fi throughout the property; visitors recommend asking for several passwords upon check-in, since each password is good for two hours of WiFi service. Guest reviews mention that the hotel staff is very friendly and accommodating with password requests. The property offers an on-site restaurant, and room service is also available.

The beach bungalows are furnished in whimsical island style; some feature a second-floor balcony or charming open terrace. Each of the beach huts has a spacious bathroom with shower stall; guest reviews point out that hot water is plentiful. The bungalows are equipped with large TVs with DVD players. Non-smoking rooms are available, too.

The Sama-Sama Bungalows offer guests a lovely tropical garden, comfortable and attractive accommodations, and an ideal location for exploring the sands, surf, and nightlife of Gili T. The beer garden and animated reggae music add to this charming property's island allure.

    Selamat malam! De laatste paar dagen hebben we doorgebracht op Gili Trawangan. Een klein eilandje, maar heel veel reizigers! Waarvan de meesten Nederlanders, Australiërs of Fransen waren. Erg leuk eiland om ongeveer 3 dagen door te brengen. Langs de hele kust vind je overal barretjes en restaurants waar altijd wel mensen zitten. Wij zijn 3 …

    The Gili islands located around the coast of Lombok, a two hour jetty ride from neighbouring Bali. Let me tell you about Bali first, Bali gets a lot of bad press....I liked it. Don't get me wrong I'm not going to pack my bags and move there tomorrow, but the place has character and lots of it. Harry and I were both very tired from our ridiculously …

    Strange that we would try to extend our visa after only being in Indonesia about a week but VOA's (visas on arrival) are only good for one month. So despite knowing we wanted to be in Indonesia more than a month when we arrived, we still have to go through a visa extension process. Suffice it to say, the process is not exactly streamlined. Bureaucracy would have us visit ...

    ... to the beach. Because it was weekend a lot of school children were also at the beach and they are practicing there English. They do this by talking to the foreign people and as we were the only tourists at that moment we were totally surrounded by children.

    The next day we rented a motorbike to drive all the way up to the northeast of the Rinjana national park to see some waterfalls. It was a very long drive and ...

    I'm told that the key to a successful trek is careful planning and careful consideration of the right route. I duly did both - careful to avoid the routes for which you must have a good head for heights, and to choose the least strenuous route given our, (Alex's) fitness. The trouble is that for us a plan is a fluid thing, open to adaptation when a more compelling option presents itself. So.....yes....you've guessed it, we were easily convinced to change our ...
