TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Vila Ombak Gili Trawangan
Staff were very obliging and fun. A few repairs needed to air con and loos were sorted promptly. The food was exceptional and the rooms cleaned daily. Happy hour with 2 for one went down well in the pool each day. Bike riding, walking around island great fun. Lots to do here and yet relaxing away from the bustle of Kuta

We got seats inside because there was air con, but you can also ...
... quickly as soon as she saw us - which is the typical behaviour - she hovered around, circling the rock we were near, because her baby was hiding in its cave beneath. We also descended To near bottom and were able to spot the baby shark. It was a mesmerizing experience, and I felt no fear, just awe. Beautiful. . . have I mentioned yet how much I love diving?
I did not point out previously that - for the first five dives with our instructor - ...
... Few hours at the beach then g went for his Balinese massage and I had a nice hour in the pool back at the accommodation to myself Now down at luckys bar awaiting sunset although still cloudy so may not be that great but we may have a big thunderstorm out at sea which was stunning last night Dinner we think will be local prawn ...
