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

... so it was actually quite nice walking without having to worry about being taken out by a speeding pony.
So our search for a nice quiet spot for some lunch proved harder than first expected as most restaurants blare out their own version of happy hardcore Island beats which makes conversation somewhat difficult. At Laguna restaurant we found it was nice and quiet so we got settled in nicely and ordered. Not 2 minutes since the waitress took our order, we saw staff ...
... wasn't so happy. Good luck sleeping now love! The prayers here can last quite a while at this time of the morning. I have never seen so many people out and about at 5.30am... unless you are in Berlin and heading onto another club for sunrise, of course. So, off I jump into my personal van and we fly through the darkness to Senaru village, about an hour away where most trekking companies are based, in the foothills of Rinjani. I met my group and guide from ...
