I went to Sambas on Gili Trawangan with my two teenage children for a four night stay. Form the beginning to the end, that staff was by far the asset of the place. Sure, rooms and surroundings were very nice, location almost perfect, nice little pool (which we didn't use, I mean; the ocean is seven steps away), but the... More

Thank you to all the staff, very accommodating and friendly! Ice cold aircon and lovely rooms! I would highly recommend this as a place to stay, close to bars if you want to experience the nightlife but far enough away that it's quiet! We will defiantly be back!

When I next come back to Gili T I will have to check availability here first. The actual villas are situated behind the reception.

Samba-villa is located in a more "crowded" area of Gili Trawangan, which makes it very convenient as it is easy to find food and shops around the area. Room is spacious and clean. Staff is super helpful and friendly. Breakfast spread is good. Their in-house spa service is reasonably priced. Highly recommended.
