We first arrive at the gate and met a person from Gili Smile taking us to the bungallow and it was amazing. 20 meters from the sea, big, clean room and outdoor private large bathroom. Amazing view, good food, friendly staff. A perfect moment for a perfect place.

There are still some restaurants and shops around but the busiest part is next to the port,so it's quite and you get good sleep. The bungalow which we had was really beautyfull and clean. They have some chairs on the beach with a beautiful view and possibility... More

Love this place. Our standard double room was cheap to book online, and even cheaper to extend at the reception. Always fully booked though! Our bungalow was right at the back and they have a lot of different types available. It was clean, good bathroom, fan cooled which kept it a good temperature with lots of space and even a... More

First of all, Ryan, the person behind the desk, was very helpful and welcoming to us. We stayed there during Ramadan, so sometimes he had to manage with less staff or resources, but he tried to help us as much as possible. We liked the rooms and the location. There is no hot water, but we didn't mind because it's... More

Really sweet guy from Sulawesi is the Staff member,he's always there to help. We got the "luxury" A/C room, but didn't use it to save money, so we used the fan and paid a bit less. But it was really worth it for the cleaness of the room and the really nice bathroom. Tip: don't talk too loud in the... More
