My wife and I are travelling around Lombok in January. We have booked most of our time in Gili T but since we arrive in mataram we thought it would be worth staying a night in Senggigi before hand so that we arent rushing about to make it to a boat etc.
I've booked us in to stay at the mascot beach hotel, and my question to you guys is what is the best way to get from senggigi to Gili T? I've read that Bangsal is a real hassle these days and it can be avoided by getting a boat from Senggigi. Is this true and if so, how should i go about organising this? Would it be best to organise it when we arrive or pre-book something beforehand? Who is a good boat-hire company to choose and what am I looking at cost wise to make the one way trip?
Thanks in advance!
