We stayed here for 4 days and liked the place. It is slightly away from the bustle of the southern side of the island, so you get the best of both the worlds.. - They have deluxe rooms, fan rooms, and homestays. We opted for the the Deluxe room and were pleased with it. It was spacious and clean. AC...

We found this place just by chance. We regret nothing!! We only wanted to stay for 2 or 3 days, but we ended up staying for almost 2,5 weeks in total. The staff are really friendly, the breakfast is brilliant and the room was tidy, clean and big (we stayed in the newer bungalows). We made new friends for life...

The location: Short walk (abt 10min) from the jetty where the public boat drops you off. Right off the beach, turn left, walk straight down.... just watch out for the potholes and sloshy bits of road - the locals water the dirt road to prevent fine sand and dust from flying into their business establishments. The people: Best to contact...

The bungalows were great but there was one flaw and that is the design of the roof that allows a lot of noise in. So during the night you would here all sorts of commotion such as cats fighting, prayers and loud party goers returning home. The distance of the bungalows from the party area was perfect as it was...

Recently stayed at Gili Smile Homestay for two nights. The Homestay is located a few metres further inland than the bungalows, but the beach is still not more than a very short walk away. Very good location since it's a bit further away from the mosque than most other places but still very close to the main road, harbour, restaurants,...

We stayed for 1 night but would have stayed longer if not full. We had the cheapest home stay room with a double bed with mosinet n fan n a good size bathroom with cold water. Didn't need anymore! It was very peaceful as set back from main road but only 2 mins away from main street. Lovely friendly staff...

First the positives: The staff were absolutely lovely! Really welcoming, always asking if you needed anything/how your day was going etc. Excellent location! A few steps to a really nice part of the beach. It's at the far end of the strip so not too busy but still a short walk to main bars/restaurants. We always managed to get a...

Peak season on Gili T means all the room rates are hiked up. We paid 300,000Rp for one of the cheap rooms in the homestay with a fan when we arrived on the day. Showers were very salty but no other complaints. It was a 70m walk from the beach. Price included breakfast and a spot on the sun loungers....

This is my favourite accommodation of all time. Our perfect little room above reception (room 13) where you can listen to the waves while you sleep and listen to the beats coming from my second home/living room at Dicky's bar. The staff are amazing and can't do enough for you. Always happy and great to party with...Randy!! Also away from...
