What a nice treat! Somehow we overlooked this expansive and expensive looking resort when we were here last year, but this year we checked it out and were offered a very comparable low season rate for a large beautiful room with air con, fridge, and very large, beautiful bathroom. During our three days here, we enjoyed the great pool, quiet surroundings, and stellar service, while taking advantage as well of the large breakfast buffet assortment, as well as the on-site restaurant with room service available until 11 p.m. We also enjoyed very inexpensive but good massages also offered on-site.
We had done a fair amount of walking around, checking out accommodations when we arrived on the island without a suitable reservation late on a Saturday afternoon. Most of the many accommodations we checked were already booked, and all that we looked at in the same or higher price range offered much less. The only issue at Villa Karang was the wi-fi being available only in the reception area, and even then, only intermittently or late at night. But we did arrive in the midst of one of the biggest tropical storms the island had seen in years, we were told, and the subsequent power outtages for the following couple of days were a minor consequence that could have been much worse. The staff did their best to address as well to accommodate for the intermittent availability of power supply dependent AC, supplying us with fans to us by.
Our stay at Villa Karang was an awesome discovery, and we would definitely stay here again.

This was our second trip to Gilli Air, but only the first for our son Tanner and his partner Annie, and our arrival was, to say the least, dramatic. We chartered a small boat for just the four of us to make the ten minute journey from the Lombok mainland to the nearest of the three Gilli Islands, Gilli Air. We did notice that the waves were getting …
... but it was very tasty and I had better gluten free enchiladas this time). This morning, we got up, packed and had lunch before bidding farewell to the rest of our island 'friends' - a guy from the dive centre cafe and Adu. We then began our transfer back to Lombok Airport. Adu couldnt come with us this time but all went roughly without a hitch, apart from some people taking our bags off the boat without asking and then demanding money! We were pleased to get to ...
... about 4 channels in Indonesian. I suppose if your at the Gili Islands you probably shouldn't be sitting in your room watching tv... So this was fine by us. The room had a nice private washroom outside. It was a clean modern washroom designed to be outdoor to the nature but had high walls for privacy. I really liked this concept, although the practicality ended up being questionable. For example, Gili Air is in a Malaria and Dengue Fever zone so doing your business or showering ...
... quarter. Now we were all alone with noone left to play with. By the time the footy finished it was pool-side o'clock and not long after that was sunset. Frocked up in one of my new Lombok bargains and headed to a yummy little restaurant called Bambu whet i see a yummy green papaya salad. Sooo delicious. Great food. Have not eaten a ****** meal since i arrived. Well another day done and dusted. Back to Bali ...
... of us meeting up at what we had now called our place for afternoons relaxing in the sun, swimming in the sea and then walking around the island to find a pair of cozy bean bag chairs on the other side to watch the sun go down over a few cold ones. The only time we were apart was when I was on the dive boat or when we were both snoring away after our ************ the beach. It was so fun to have someone to giggle at the other beach goers and make up funny stories ...
