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

... spotting became a regular occurrence and each of us had seen his or her share. We put Sam in a half day Scuba Ranger course. He really enjoyed scuba diving in the pool. I decided to get a SCUBA “tune-up” and did a 60 foot dive off the southern coast of Gili T. I’m really glad I did it. As we were leaving the Gili’s I realized it hadn’t rained in four days. Just as we arrived in Ubud….it rained ...
... Few hours at the beach then g went for his Balinese massage and I had a nice hour in the pool back at the accommodation to myself Now down at luckys bar awaiting sunset although still cloudy so may not be that great but we may have a big thunderstorm out at sea which was stunning last night Dinner we think will be local prawn ...
