It's so good to leave the ridiculously busy Kuta for the tranquil Gili Islands. However it was a horrible start to what we had hoped to be a relaxing few days away. In a sticky 35 degree heat, our land transportation to the islands was over capacity and our boat broke down midway - but it was still good to get away! The first week of this wedding …

Once there we went for a walk along the street. It is a quiet, simple place, with very little facilities. Gusti came with us, telling us a few things about the island, but mostly just hanging with us to make sure we were ok. The island reminded us of Rotto, with the cabins and laid back lifestyle.

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
