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

I've found the Indonesians more than accommodating and hospitable (amongst the best in any of my travels).

Flash forward to a scene of JR lazing on the floor of her Italian flat sometime later, about to dig into a plate of al fresco delights she's just carefully prepared for herself. That’s the scene, and it seems to be her ...
... followed by a delicious Italian meal, as recommended by my guide book. We both had seafood Tagliatelle which was divine and ACTUALLY tasted Italian (the wine was rather nice too)... we later discovered our waiter (and owner) was indeed Italian. Grazie mille mate!
NEXT: All aboard the next dodgem ride back to Bali, cue strong pirate act and UB40 album on standby, off we then go to our next island west of Bali.... JAVA! (Oh and more volcano ...
... of the crashing waves. Again I lucked in with a private lesson and a beach almost to myself yet again. With some quick instructions on the sand and refreshing my memory with the 1-2-3 of getting up on the board, I was being strapped to my long board and running into the water. Man o Man I forgot how tiring it was to paddle out in the surf and how much my arms were burning after so many months of not lifting, but once I caught my first wave it was ...
