Travel Blogs from Gili Trawangan
We went to the beach front to board the glass bottom boat that would be taking us around to Gili Air and Gili Meno for our snorkeling trip. We were fitted out with fins and (luckily for us) were called onto the boat early on – this meant we were able to sit by one of the two glass windows.

... it to the other side of the room and I was able to retrieve my knife.

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
