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.

As we went down, we saw the landscape was very impressive, and far more undulated than any we have been to before, however due to the visibility only being 10m or so we weren't able to see a wide variety of fish.

Once we'd finished up we called a taxi which never arrived and were kindly given a lift by the hotels transfer service for the same price as a taxi. Back in the airport we checked in, queued for an age to get through security (after paying our £10 departure tax!) and milled around spending ...
... deafening oversized outboard motors try ***********tradict them. It's a thirty minute crossing, and a short wade to shore on the other side that wasn't enough to grey by blackened feet. The Gili's are: Gili Tarawangan where the 'gan' is pronounced through your nose or the whole thing is just shortended to T by the cool kids. Its the party island, or condom island as the locals on Gili Air say. Gili Meno, is the Samloem of Lombok, the last to open up to mass tourism and still mainly ...
... company John's Adventures. If you are ever travelling to Lombok and fancy climbing Rinjani (seriously prepare yourself if you are!!), climb with John's Adventures... they are super professional and organised. As I turned up alone, I was inevitably a little nervous as to how things would turn out... but I was in extremely safe hands and was welcomed with open arms as soon as I arrived. I was fed breakfast and reassured by Mr John (the owner) that I was in ...
