Great stay, great staff, lovely island.
We went there for 3 days of diving and 5 nights of sleeping. All of them were great. The staff were super-friendly and helpful, too. You always felt that they paid enough respect to the safety side of every dive, whilst keeping it light and easygoing.
The accommodation is clean, reasonably priced and well located (so is everything on the island)
The food at the cafe/restaurant is surprisingly good, and you get a 10% discount being a guest.
Make the most of the happy hour, too.

After the luxury of Bali! we moved to the relative squalour of Gili Air. The journey to which we made via it's older, noisier and more hedonistic brother, Gili Trawangan. The boat trip to Gili T from "mainland" Bali was on a fast boat, and it seemed that it was built for speed rather than comfort. The silver lining of the relentlessly juddering …
... thing was sure then....It felt so good. In fact...very refreshing...like each of these tears would take a piece of that heavy stone that happened be squashing my chest.
Was it me trying to hold off and be strong before that happened? Was it repressed feeling of overall bad experiences I had on my travel?

She asked “Can you borrow others from here as there are heaps of rental shops nearby?” “No, no, no I don’t know anyone and I have heaps at my office, but you don’t need them anyway. Hahaha!”
Anyway I took off to test ride (feeling a little guilty) and they were still sitting there, and he was on the phone. Don’t know how it was sorted out, but I saw them later ...
... Gili Meno, the smallest of the islands and with not much on it. The bungalows we wanted were full so we opted for cheaper, perhaps too cheap of a bungalow as it had no light, a fan, and an outdoor bathroom which was not covered at all.....so when it was pouring in the evening, we got really soaked on the toilets, and the shower did not work properly and the toilet did not flush! However, the snorkleing was alright and we spotted another turtle. Before we left the island ...
... then what should have been a 2 hour trip became 5 hours, we were soaked, cold and thoroughly fed up. Suddenly the rain disappeared, we started to climb the steepest of hills, unsure if our little Honda would make it and finally below and beyond was the incredible view of Kuta's surrounding bays. Not to be confused with Bali's Kuta, this place is a gem and it's no wonder so many major developers are buying up land. Ten years from now and ...
