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 posed for a few photos and headed back to the boat for the two hour cruise over to Rinca, and what a journey it was- it was idyllic sitting in the sun at the front of the ...
... you probably should have! It was the joke right through the evening. We went and got early dinner. The street food in Indonesia is just amazing, and you can try so many varieties for just $3. After that, we just walked along the streets. She was just trying to make up her mind whether to drink alcohol or have ice-cream. I was content to let her make that choice. If she chose to retire early today, I had planned to go to a bar and just hang out there. ...
... features a giant lake and mini mountains from smaller eruptions within the volcano crater. As the sun sets this is simply spectacular, which appears to be above the cloud-line for us and emits very deep reds and oranges into the sky, as we eat our rice dinner with hot tea, and even try some rice wine, which is very good! After sunset we light a fire from wood we collected and carried from the forest, and see probably one of the most clear night sky's for star gazing in the ...
