Alam Gili
Ranked #13 of 37 Hotels in Gili Trawangan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 June 2012

In my opinion, the northern beaches offer the best location for accommodation on the island, and Alam Gili, appearing like an oasis, is one of the few spots with shady trees providing all day cover from the sun, for lazy days spent snorkelling, snoozing and eating, and just a 10 minute stroll to the bars and restaurants along the 'party' strip.
We stayed in Suite Fish - a special treat - a grand 2 storey, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom palace - exceptional value for 95 USD ++ per night. I was able to take a peek at the other rooms, all of which were beautiful, spacious, with that outdoorsy style bathroom. Breakfast, included in the rate, was very generous, we also tried lunch and dinner - everything was fresh and delicious. Afternoon tea, usually chocolate cake, is also included in the rate. Alam Gili scores extra points in my book for the staff - a lovely bunch of guys, always ready with a smile and happy to chat. There is a great reef right there for snorkelling with an abundance of coral and big fish - we came across turtles several times. If you are travelling with kids in the 5-7 age group i suggest you bring their own snorkelling gear as we found smaller kids sizes are not readily available. If you have soft 'office feet' you might also want to consider reef shoes. Other recommendations for food - Blu D'mare served the best italian food we have EVER had - Karma Kayak has a lovely beachside setting for delicious tapas and Scallywags has a most impressive menu. This was our first time to Trawangan and i have to say, the island and Alam Gili were definitely highlights of our trip. The so called party strip was certainly a bit tacky and crowded, with boats and backpackers, but not at all off putting should you want some music and a drink in the evenings.

Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful, Suite Fish though is perfect for two couples or a family.

Our stay at Alam Gili met all our expectations and more. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The front desk manager was Putu and his smile would melt a heart of stone. Well, it did mine anyway. We commented that we were much happier being close enough to the centre of town to walk, ride our bikes, or take a pony cart but not so close that we were in crowds of people.
We rented bikes and snorkeling gear from the hotel, all very easy. Our breakfasts were large, delicious, and varied. There is an excellent Thai restaurant only two doors down.
The only effort we made during our stay was walking the 30 seconds from our villa to the beach.
Our villa had air conditioning but we never used it, all of us preferring the fresh breezes.
We are already planning a return trip and we’ll go right back to Alam Gili.

This lovely hotel is far enough away from the main drag that its peaceful, but close enough to not feel isolated. The adjoining restaurant serves delicious food and the service from both restaurant staff and hotel staff was fantastic. The rooms are set around a central garden area which feels like a mini jungle (in a good way).

In terms of the room itself....spacious, gorgeous bathroom, free selection of DVDs provided, noisy fan but not enough to keep you awake. There are large balconies outside the rooms with sofas and table and chairs which are perfect for relaxing evenings.

This is not luxury, but a great find nonetheless.

The villas are surrounded by an immaculately kept garden and are located on the northern coast of the island. The white sand coral beach is shaded by trees with one side being the dining area and the other side for relaxing on recliners. Right in front is the best snorkelling at Gili Trawangan. The well trained staff are both friendly and efficient and will arrange diving tours and anything else needed by their clientele.The included breakfast is delicious and the afternoon tea a treat. The restaurant can also provide lunch and dinner from their menu which includes the best Gado-Gado amongst many other inexpensive but delicious options.

Loved the location, the breakfasts on the beach, and the service generally.

We can't complain about much except that we were unable to book a room with AC, and found it uncomfortably hot for sleeping, even with the giant fans they provide blowing right on us.

On the plus side, the pool remains refreshingly cool in the shade--even nicer than the sea itself for cooling off.

We rented bikes but found the stretch of road approaching Alam Gili was too soft for riding--we ended up walking the bikes for considerable distances.

Room Tip: Book one with aircon!
