Another place we visited because of bad experiences elsewhere on the island. This resort is luxury! The pool, the villas, the bar and pool: everything is 5/5!! Great for honeymoon or if you want to enjoy luxury for a few days. Thanks again to the very nice owners/managers for their great help trying to find a place for our group....

This is by far the best hotel we had during our roundtrip through Indonesia. The staff will ask you the whole day if you are okay and if they can help you with anything. In the evening they come to your bungalow to preper it for the night. When it started raining the staff runs into you to make sure...

Nice location, laid back atmosphere and nice beach although it's not great for swimming or snorkelling. Arrival could have been organised better and breakfast was very slow - we had fabulous service at the previous stay in Komaneka in Ubud and the comparison between the two was marked - which perhaps is a little unfair. Good for a short stay.

This place is amazing!! We spent 7 nights here for our honeymoon and after spending a lot of time looking at accomodation options, this place is definitely the best on the island!! We stayed in the deluxe bungalow with pool which was fabulous, but no better than the private pool bungalows. The rooms are beautiful and private pool fabulous. The...

The hotel and staff defiantly made the trip to gili worthwhile! Nothing was too big or small and they attended to anything you needed. Very clean and great food! Loved it!! The room was designed very well and had a great outdoor shower but plenty of greenery and plants to make it feel very secluded! The pool was a great...

Stayed 29 to 31Jan 2017 in a private pool villa The whole experience was fantastic- the room, the private pool, lovely staff, excellent wifi, spoilt for choice with the English channels on TV and the good food, albeit small portions and a small menu. A definite 5 star stay on Gili T, and definitely recommended!

WOW! Remarkable Oasis with incredible staff, excellent food and specialty drinks. Fresh pressed juices, smoothies in the morning OR an ice cold Bintang, as I preferred.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pondok Santi Estate is the ultimate getaway retreat featuring ten beautiful bungalows set in lawned grounds on an ancient coconut plantation. Each traditional bungalow has a beautiful open-air bathroom, safe, air conditioner, mini bar, fan, lovely front terrace and day bed overlooking the manicured grounds. Private Pool Bungalows also include their own plunge pools, sun lounges and king size outdoor daybed. There are 10 beruga palm-thatched day beds in the grounds and along our private beach, which are the perfect place to chill out, sleep or read. During the day, get together around the large 25m central pool where snacks and cold drinks can be ordered, listen to music or just relax on the sun lounges. The resort offers a boutique restaurant, which is open for lunch and dinner while the main beachfront strip starts just 400m away with dive shops, restaurants, and beach bars, so you're never short of somewhere to eat. Cooling white stone paths link the areas of the estate, and coconut palms provide welcome shade in the heat of the day. In fact, everything has been designed to make sure your stay is comfortable and hassle-free. The island, with its coral reefs, is a favorite destination for divers, and one of the best dive spots is right outside Pondok Santi. There are plenty of dive shops on the beachfront where you can hire equipment, and arrange a boat trip. You don't need a boat for snorkelling as there's plenty of colorful coral and marine life to discover from the beachfront, including turtles, clown fish and many more! If surfing is your thing Pondok Santi is the perfect place, with a surf break right off the beach. For a couple of hours either side of high tide, you can paddle out and enjoy the waves. Most days and evenings 'Princess Margaux', the resorts luxurious traditional outrigger is available for sunset and snorkeling cruises, the boat can also be hired privately for island hopping adventures throughout the day. The island also offers riding and kayaking, and there are numerous spas on the island, where you can enjoy facials, massage and other beauty treatments. Lombok is just 20 minutes way by boat - a great destination for a game of golf, exploring the markets or a hike up Mt Rinjani. ... more   less
