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

Next stop was Lake Bratan and Pura Ulun Dawu (temple on the lake), the temple was beautiful ...

It cost 200,000 ($17 US). Our bus got a flat tire which delayed things by 1 hour but we did make it there in tge larte afternoon and in time to see a gorgeous sunset.
The Gili islands are amazing. There are 3 islands 2 hours by ferry from South east Bali. Gili Trawangan, Gili ...
... star welcome. Pauline and Wayne had been here only 5 weeks ago and were the first ever clients to rebook accommodation while still staying here. She had also posted some very favourable reviews on Trip Adviser! We were welcomed by a number of staff and the manager quickly appeared to complete the welcome party. We were soon sporting frangipani lei's and a delicious welcome drink, spiked with ginger and with a cinnamon stick stirrer. The others had a wait for their room (we later ...
