Spend some time and go past all the drama and hustle of the main street after you arrive. About ten fifteen minutes along the waterfront so have the camera out. Amazing views to the left and at times don't look right as can be lots of rubbish on vacant plots. Come along and find the music - rasta playing away...

We stopped here a couple of times during our stay on Gili T. The drums and the sunset made for an awesome atmosphere. Everyone was very friendly and the drinks were great! One of our favorite places to hang out in the evenings!

Spend an evening or two here at sunset and you'll want to stay forever. Grab a beanbag overlooking the sea, listen to the sunset drumming (brilliant) and just watch the sun go down. There's a beautiful breeze playing over the warmth of the night. It just doesn't get any better. A good respite from the busy main centre of this...

You definitely can see the most beautiful sunset over there ! Also they have great food and music all day long ! The people working there are friendly and professional. There is a swing in the water, you can take good picture!

At Exile's Swing/ Water hammock, u will find the warmest sea water in whole of Gili. It's as warm as bath water. Really really warm. You have to feel it to experience it. Simply amazing. Chillaxing bar with great beach vibes and friendly staff.

I can stay here doing nothing, just sit on the sand with the beautiful sea view. The Exile gave us the perfect view far from the crowd of Gili Trawangan. If you want to visit Gili Trawangan but you need the quiet moment, you could visit The Exile. Perfect place to release your stress.

We visited as a group of mates in November. As we rode our push bikes around the island we decided to stop in for some beverages. What a great idea that was. The sun was beginning to set and there was a line of people waiting their turn to have their photo taken on the water swing with the sunset...

We have stayed at Gili Trawangan for 2 days and watched the sunset at Exile. We sat on the beach and had coctails while watching sunset. There were musicians playing percussions and people were hula hopping. Watching the colors of the sunset, ocean was just perfect.

We absolutely loved our stay on Gili T due to the Exile. Set in an amazing location outside of the main hub, it is quiet, relaxing and beautiful. The staff are lovely and the accommodation was so cool, being not your typical hotel room but traditional Indonesian beach bungalow type houses. We would recommend this to anyone, we definitely miss...

Very peaceful and great place to see the sun go down, very nice guys and good food!! This is the most beautifull point to see the sun go down! Be aware if you want to take a picture on the swing do it before the sun goes down otherwise you will be stuck in line with 200 hundred wannabe gisele...
