We were only supposed to stay a couple of nights on this island, but ended up staying a week. We were travelling on a shoestring budget, but we felt it was well worth spending a bit more on our accommodation so that we could enjoy lounging around since there's not much to do on the island except relax.

We stayed for 3 nights in June in one of the Backpacker Rooms and overall had a good time. The food is great and the staff is really nice, we loved Gili Gede as it is not as touristy as the 3 Gilis in the north of Lombok. What we didn't know is that the next Mosque is about 50... More

We were in henri's little island paradise for two days and nights. We enjoyed our stay very much and can definitely recommend the tasty food, friendly staff, great music, relaxed atmosphere and interesting conversations we found literally 5 meters from the ocean. We also booked a boat for one day to visit different islands, beaches and snorkeling spots, which was... More

We stayed 2 nights at Madak Belo and enjoyed the clean rooms, snorkeling tour and relaxing in the sun. Hazam, the operational manager of this place is a very smart and friendly local, who ensures that everyone feels welcomed. The food, that the lovely kitchen staff serve, is just amazing and is offered for a very good price. Also the... More

Henry takes care of his place, a nice bamboo house right on the beach. From there you can snorkel around, have great hikes, and enjoy a wonderful sunrise. Nice food, well prepared. Limited electricity and water. Overall great place to spend 3 days.

We didn't actually stay at Madak Belo since it was full upon our arrival (we just popped up without booking), but we had all our meals there and got a lot of help from the owner Henri. Henri has a lot of local experience and knows a lot of people. He was kind enough to help us out with everything.... More

Chill out on the balcony in the comfy hammocks as the sun goes down or comes up. The rooms are quite hot as there is no electricity at night, however the scenery, staff, food and pure serenity of this place make up for it.

Small homestay/hotel on a little populated island - Gili Gede - a real get away from even the most getaway islands. Madak Belo is the perfect place to stay (very reasonably priced) to discover Lombok's southern most Gilis, which are set to become THE new destination in the next couple of years... 16 islands make up this tiny group of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The hotel consists in 2 beach bungalows, 3 rooms, a bar and a restaurant. All the construction have been made in the respect of nature using as much as it can wood, bambu, stones and traditional "alang-alang" grass roof. Located a few steps from the sea, these 2 bungalows got their own private open-air bathroom and a big terrace each. The 3 Rooms share a bathroom and a big sea view terrace. The bar always plays international good tunes (we hope so!!) and offers a large selection of international spirits, some home flavored rums, sodas and fresh fruit juice from 07h00 until 23h00 (or more). The restaurant can guaranty extreme freshness as all the dishes are prepared on order. We go everyday to the market so what is on the menu is available and as fresh as possible. We can organize snorkeling trips to Gili Layar and Gili Ringit, day trip to Gili Nanggu and Gili Sudak. If you need any transport for your way back, we can arrange it too. Madak Belo is a small hotel but run with a big heart. ... more   less

“The 3 'backpacker' rooms in the main building are half the price, but you share a bathroom. The bungalows are great, save the lack of fresh water and fans.”
