Our first time to Gili Trawangan and we were impressed. The Bale Sampan Bungalows were very nice, the manager Rudy, was extremely helpful and polite. The bungalows are probably on the more economic side of the spectrum but very very nice. Individual rooms with no common walls, so no noise issues. Only 12 bungalows so on the intimate scale of...

Staff are wonderful and friendly and have really made our stay memorable and enjoyable. We stayed in a pool view room and was great to just walk out to the pool. Breakfasts yummy and some good variety. The best snorkeling on the island is right in front with lots of fish to see. A nice spot not too busy or...

We stayed on the delightful Gili Island of Trawangan from 4 April to 7 April 2015 – lovely snorkelling both close to shore and from enjoyable boat trips around the islands. We stayed at the Bale Sampan Bungalows which we felt were quite overpriced for what you get. The hot water system on our bungalow was broken from day 1,...

Bale Sampan always takes very seriously any comment that our staff have not lived up to their normal and much heralded reputation for excellent customer service. In attempting to get more details from the customer we have tried numerous times to contact them directly and get to the bottom of this to no avail. Unfortunately the customer has chosen not...

We stayed on Gili T at the Bale Sampan for 3 nights. I chose this hotel in large part due to it's location. It has a great snorkeling beach right out front. We spent 3 days watching the fish and turtles (while we were dodging the boats coming in and out). They've got plenty of lounge chairs on the beach...

Hi, thank you for taking the time to review Bale Sampan Bungalows & Café. Bale Sampan is ideally positioned for snorkeling and for seeing turtles. As we are an island there are many boats coming in and out. However, the boats are being encouraged to use the designated harbor area instead of the public beach. The amount of boats coming...

The accomodation at Bale Sampan was great! Loved the outdoor bathroom area, quite the novelty when it rains! The staff were wonderful. They all remembered your name. Breakfast was to order, not buffet style. Gili T was just a great place to be all up
