Reviewed 17 March 2012

The hotel itself is one of the very few good things on this island! Alam Gili is small but clean and green. The staff is very friendly and supportive. We had some accidents there and they helped us a lot. There was no one request which they did not satisfied. I believe they even red our minds and the service came before the asking. Very nice guys, always smiley! The breakfast on the beach was excellent. The location is great from our point of view - far from the crowd and still near enough to went out for a dinner around the central restaurants. We stayed in Star Fish bungalow - small but still enough for a couple. We had not AC but with three fans it was no problem at all. Sleeping quality is great. The staff treated the room with repellents against mosquitoes every day so we were just fine.
Generally we expected much more from Gili Trawangan island - small and green paradise with not too many people around, clean and natural. The reality was different - Gili T is very dirty island (I believe because of the tourists mostly) and it is full with drug sellers ("Magic Mushrooms" and marihuana were offered to us on every corner) which was very unpleasant experience.

We stayed here for 3 nights in March 2012 and had a fantastic vacation. The villas are set amidst a lush garden which provides lots of privacy between units. Breakfast and afternoon teas are delivered to either the beachside seating area or your room. Service at the hotel was excellent - the staff went out of their way to make sure we had a comfortable stay from arranging our snorkelling trip to making sure that our rooms were free of mosquitoes at night. If we could have stayed for a month, we would have.

We didn't stay at the hotel, but did eat at the restaurant a number of times and it was great! The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. The setting, among the scrub trees on the beach, was beautiful especially at night when they put lights in the trees. Well worth the walk away from town for a romantic dinner.

We booked Alam Gili as a second venue having booked into Alam Shanti for the first days of our stay in/around Bali.

Alam Shanti (see separate review) was fabulous, but you'd never guess this hotel is part of the same Group.

The service was friendly but amateur and with little apparent training. As such your patience would be tested at times beyond what you'd normally tolerate.The room had a minibar with no stock, which was also a slight irritant. Mmmmm - ok you might say - so what... well the service was overfriendly, which at times also was very irritating.

What caused us to check out early, however, was the aircon. As the hotel did not have it's own generator (at May 2009) the daily powercuts (sometimes several/day) meant that the aircon stopped working. In this hot and sticky climate that meant that.we couldn't sleep thus losing any tranquility we had built in the day and totally ruining this as a venue for us.

Being able to sleep is a key basic facility of any hotel hence the 1 rating.

Locationwise this is at the quieter end of the island, which was part of why we chose it, but be aware that the beach at this end is corally and thus painful to sensitive feet : it is much sandier/smoother further south.

Facility wise the property was good - and similar in many ways to Alam Shanti. Room sizes are huuuuuuuuuuge and spacious, the lack of tv etc helps add to the quiet and calm which is why most will want to get away to Bali/The Gilis; but may not be for everyone. That said the pool is tiny and cold...

The food was good - though the beach special was overpriced and far from the best meal we had in our stay.

When we left we decamped to Vila Ombak - and though some of that facility would not be our usual choice (potentially noisy with the large pool area and bars) we had a Lumbung Seaside Room : which was heavenly and nicely secluded with a private pool.

PS We are late posting this : we stayed in May 2009. (Oops!)

I loved this hotel!
The rooms are beautiful, spacious and airy. I loved the outdoor shower!
The food is delicious! We took our breakfast on the beach! It was divine!
The staff was extremely helpful and friendly! The best I've ever met!

I advise everyone and it is indeed a special place and that makes me great one!

The snorkel near the hotel is brutal and free :)!
