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

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.

You lie flat with your face in the water holding on to the buoy ...

... 56834; but luckily after about half an hour we arrived in Lombok and a lovely guy from Gili gave his seat up for me on the boat and left me chatting to his wife, who was also very sweet. When we arrived, the first thing we did is argue with the porter staff who apparently wanted money for helping us get our backpacks off the boat, bloody typical I was furious. We then argued some more trying to find cheap transport to Senggigi and luckily were approached by a lady ...

A nice thing about Lombok is less tourism, so less people and less cars. Unlike Bali which is chocka block full of traffic on narrow roads! Much easier to get around here and naturally faster!
It's been a fascinating time watching how the traffic works in Lombok. I’ve been privileged being able to sit in the front seat of "transport" to get around Lombok, ...
