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

We exit the water agreeing it’s probably been the best dive we’ve ever been on. Linda is really happy – she’d come into the Gilis with the expectation of having to dive in ...
... it's even cheaper than what we normally pay I'm talking like six pounds a night for us both including breakfast and the views are incredible you can see rice fields and palm trees and the rainforest and some of mount Rinjani itself the room is very very basic with funny bed sheets and a bathroom that has no sink or mirror or anything the shower is cold which isn't normally a problem but as were so high up and near to ...
... touts. When I relayed my experience to Bruce, he confessed that he just had a guy lean over the wall of the hotel (he was in the cafe) to ask he wanted transport. The same is, that you miss seeing the sights when walking down the road. Unless you have your eyes seriously downcast and walk fast you must want something, 'yessss....what do you want?!' But don't walk too fast...Jalan Jalan ...where are you going? What are you doing? Why aren't you ...
