Alam Gili
Ranked #14 of 37 Hotels in Gili Trawangan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 December 2011

Alam Gili is at the quieter northern end of the island - about 20mins walk from the main strip. It's a great spot on the island if you are wanting to keep yourself seperate from the partygoers. It's also away from the mosque and roosters that others complain about being noisy.

The facilities are lovely. Nice room with a big bathroom and lovely daybed out the front. The bed is quite firm though. The staff are just wonderful - all so friendly and helpful! Great restaurant too. Others were making the trip to the top of the island just to eat there.

Right out the front of the hotel is a coral reef - magical! Walk out over the coral and there you are - hundreds of beautiful bright coloured fish!

Room Tip: We had the Kura Kura bungalow - very nice.

Pros: A cool green place on an island that's fairly dry and hot.
The rechargeable torches in rooms were a great idea.
downstairs queen bed and own bathroom which our 2 kids shared
upstairs queen bed and our own bathroom. Towels and sarongs provided.
Staff were friendly grounds kept very neat and tidy.
Much better value than Gili Eco resort we also stayed there
Cons: Restaurant was expensive with small portions compared to other restaurants on island. Bit too far from town and horse and carts were 50,000 rupiah to go one way, expensive transport for indo standards. Not the place to go to party. But great to go and relax.

Room Tip: sweet fish room is next to pool can watch kids play from room or balcony

We spent 4 nights here with our 2 year old son and friends with 2 young sons and had a wonderful time. Our friends had an entire Balinese style house and we had the bottom floor of one, both had a lovely patio to sit on with table and also a sofa which was good for afternoon snoozes! The 'hotel' - just doesn't feel like one - is right on the beach off of which was the best snorkeling on the island. The rooms are all situated around a lovely garden which is no mean feat on an island where there is no fresh water source and it all had to be brought in from Lombok. Liked the fact that its away from the party side of the island though it means you miss out on the views of Lombok which you get from the Eastern side of the island and you do have to pay for a horse cart into town though we didn't go into town much so it didn't matter. We were impressed that Alam Gili offered half price refills of water bottles as a 'green' initiative. The staff were young guys who were all so friendly and laid back, lovely bunch. Massive breakfast. Kids loved the fact that they could be on the beach right from breakfast time right in front of us so was very stress free. If you want a quiet stay on Gili T this is a good option though I do wonder if we shouldn't have chosen Gili Meno instead. Read another review about the pool being too cold, I thought it was wonderfully refreshing especially as the sea was really, really warm! Our room also had air conditioning as did our friends' room but not sure whether they all do.

stayed here for my husbands birthday during our trip to indonesia in July 2011 - had specifically chosen it as we wanted a small/personal hotel. Duyong Room was overlooking beach - had a massive balcony, great for relaxing at end of day. Afternoon tea and breakfast served on the beach was lovely. Great snorkeling right outside hotel, can hire equipment from hotel for small charge.

Staff very friendly however i was really disappointed with the service we received. I e mailied hotel a few times before my stay and requested a special cake for my husbands birthday which they said would be fine, the day before his birthday i asked reception if it was still ok and they wanted to charge me £15GBP which i thought was too much so i declined the offer. On his birthday no-one wished him happy birthday (our room was covered with cards) and i was a little disappointed.

Our room was cleaned everyday and was spotless however it was extremely hot, the fan did little to offer any respite from the july heat and was unbearable at times. The small pool was freezing - it had no sun on it all day but was welcome and refreshing for a quick dip after sunbathing.

Location of Alam Gili was right at north of island - a good 25 minutes and in my opinion too far from the other bars/restaurants. I felt very unsafe walking in the dark (definitlely need a torch) as the north of the island was very isolated.

I dont want to be too negative about Alam Gili because it was a peaceful, well kept, intimate hotel but i would stay nearer to the harbour if i was to visit the island again. Overall i was disappointed in gili T - it was a cheap, tacky party island and I much prefered our stay on Gili Meno - in contrast this was a quiet, relaxing and beautiful place - paradise!

Just spent 3 nights with the great staff at Alam Gili. Always smiling and singing, willing and helpful.
Unfortunately there is, at present, construction of another villa/hotel next door, so constant banging and drilling from dawn until late at night. I realise this will one day be completed and no-one can be held responsible but it was not the peaceful few days I had hoped for.
Despite this we had a fun time on the Island

Room Tip: Room Duyung is the only first floor that over looks the beach
