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

This bar was ok but not quite the same atmosphere as Vintage but we were able to order Cuba Libre’s and other cocktails to stop the sleepy effects of Bintang.

What makes this temple unique is that it is on an island just off the shore, that can only be accessed during low tide. When we walked up it was nothing like the pics or post cards we have seen. The temple is barely visible from the main land as trees growing out of the side of the rock block the view. Uluwatu was, in our opinion, a hundred ...
... t have a sunset view but can't have it all. As someone once said keep them coming every five minutes until I tell you to speed up! Maybe the zipp bar isn't that cool after all even the naive me thinks that just got offered drugs? Waiter while looking at my cigarettes says "do you smoke everything?" My response luckily was no only those ...
... side of which you can hear the surf, as we climb the steps we are both looking back to get our first glimpse of the view, WOW. Over the top of the dunes is some of the bluest watered I have ever seen, not a beautiful clam turquoise blue but a torrid deep blue, edged by a deep intense turquoise blue and top by white caps, the wind hits us in the face and I am reminded of everything that I love about the North coast of Cornwall out of season, you can taste the salt ...
