PostSubject: Gili Air new hotel?   Thu Mar 26, 2009 3:23 am

Hi! I am planning for my Lombok trip - 1 night in Senggigi & 2 nights in Gili Air. This is our first time to Lombok.

Is there any new hotel in Gili Air? If not, cud someone recommend where to stay ? We choose Gili Air over Gili T because we really want a quiet place to relax. Gili T seems too crowded but it does have more choices in terms of accommodation. We look thru the website Lombok networks and couldn't seem to find something we like in Gili Air.

Please please help. Sad

Hi Hammock

I am afraid I can not help with your question as I have never stayed on Gili Air, only Gili Meno.

I just thought if I replied it might flag your question again, so someone who has some up to date info can answer. Very Happy

Hi Hammock

can you provide some more information as to what you are looking for? You mentioned you don't like what you have found on Lombok Network, but not why. If you state what sort of accom you are looking for, price range, facilities, etc. then someone may help.

Cheers

Freo

Hi Freo ! we are just a couple looking for the perfect place to relax and unwind ourselves.
It is just that I am quite particular about the design of the hotels I choose. I prefer something simple
but with good taste of design. Most of the pictures at the website look very old.
If possible, we prefer individual hut not far from beach with clear water beach where we can snorkel.

I have found Sejuk Cottages at Gili Air. I quite like the designs. But I have also come across Shack 58 at Gili Meno which I love.
The photos look amazing but there weren't much review on the net. That is why now I can't decide where to go?

I don't mind if the island is too quite. Most important is the beach is white sand and clear water. So which has the best beach?

Hi Hammock

I'm guessing where I have stayed on my three visits to Gili Meno may not be for you, as I was in budget accomodation Kontiki Bungalows.

As you are probably aware the three islands are tagged party island, family island and honeymoon island. And from what you are saying I think the Meno the honeymoon island would be ideal.

I have found this site that claims to list ALL accommodation on the Gilis so maybe worth having a look at.

Gili Hotels

However once you have decided on your accommodation I suggest you contact the hotel directly to book.

My own experience of Lombok Network and several other online "agents" is that they were offering our accommodation on their websites at highly inflated rates - as much as 100% in some cases, had used copywritten information from our website. Information that was several years out of date. And with one agent when I had a freind attempt to make a booking through them, they were advised to stay elsewhere Evil or Very Mad

Having said that Lombok Network removed us from their website as soon as I requested, unlike some of the other agents.

Hi Hammock

I haven't stayed at Shack 58, but from the photo it is not the sort of place that appeals to me. I don't like the 'concrete box' style of accommodation you sometimes get in that area. I prefer natural materials, which is much cooler in that climate.

On Gili Air I have only spent time at Sunrise cottages - which is on about the nicest bit of beach on the island and has some very comfortable bales on the beach that are perfect for lazing the day away. If you want something upmarket you probably will have to go to Gili T.

If you are looking to stay on Lombok, have a look at this place Beach Club Senggig - these are new cottages and I think fit your description. Also take a look at Kuta Lombok Hideaway . Kuta Lombok and the beaches near Kuta are stunningly white and the water is very clean and clear.
