We have stayed at Gili Trawangan for 2 days and watched the sunset at Exile. We sat on the beach and had coctails while watching sunset. There were musicians playing percussions and people were hula hopping. Watching the colors of the sunset, ocean was just perfect.

We absolutely loved our stay on Gili T due to the Exile. Set in an amazing location outside of the main hub, it is quiet, relaxing and beautiful. The staff are lovely and the accommodation was so cool, being not your typical hotel room but traditional Indonesian beach bungalow type houses. We would recommend this to anyone, we definitely miss...

Very peaceful and great place to see the sun go down, very nice guys and good food!! This is the most beautifull point to see the sun go down! Be aware if you want to take a picture on the swing do it before the sun goes down otherwise you will be stuck in line with 200 hundred wannabe gisele...

Amazing place to spend an evening watching the sunset with a cocktail in hand and some of your favorite people by your side. Definitely the place to have a moment of zen. This is also located right in front of the famous swing that is must have pic for your trip.

And this year it worked out quite good again! - The hotel has nice typical bungalows with and without air conditioning. - Rooms are totally not expensive. - Food is great! - Beach is really relaxing. - Staff is...

We stayed in the LOFT with three friends. Enough space for all of us. The 'living area' with TV/DVD is useless of course. Room not really clean. Open Air bathroom ok. One night we shared the room with a super loud geko :D 900k for a night a little to much. the big plus is the perfect location. Calm west...

Sweet little cottages, good breakfast, cool staff. Beach nice, but you cannot swimm there. Amazing atmosphere during sunset, but after that it is very quiet, no people. For Dinner you have to go near harbour by bike.

The Exile is a very nice place at the beach to watch sunset and many people take photos here on the swing in the sea. They also rent rooms here but I am surely not recommending these to anyone. First of all, the rooms are literally so small that it consist of 1 bed and 1 small cupboard but you...

We stayed at the Exile for three nights. The atmosphere during sunsets was amazing, especially the bonfire at night and the staff playing the drums. It gets really quite after 9pm though. I'd definitely go there for sunset, but I wouldn't stay in one of their rooms again. We stayed in a standard Bungalow which was tiny, there was hardly...

Perfect place to chill & relax. Went there twice, for sunset & next morning. This place has good atmosphere with nice music. Ideal when accompanied with good book and icy cold beer. There is also a swing by the sea. Lots of people queued to take photos.
