Gili T as an island destination is idyllic but like many beautiful islands in Asia it can be less than comfortable if you don't have somewhere with all the little comforts and luxuries to retreat to and Ko-Ko-Mo is one of the few places on the Island that provides this absolute haven of luxury (at the best end of the Island but still close to everything). My partner and I felt like we were truly in paradise for 6 days thanks to Ko-Ko-Mo and Villa Mawar. We ate, drank, dipped in our little pool, snorkelled in the sea, saw a turtle, walked, read books, rode bikes and enjoyed meeting the mix of characters who visit the island and gather at the bars at night - the Irish pub down the road is great for a laugh and drink or two!
I had been to Gili T almost 3 years ago and had always wanted to go back. At that time Ko-Ko-Mo had only just been built and i visited for evening drinks and knew then I wanted to stay there next time I came - the location, service and clear attention to detail of the property caught my eye.
Thank you to Bapak Mark for looking after us so well and when we had to change our plans for getting to the island because of bad weather and the fast boat not running, he made sure all ran smoothly with a driver and motor boat transfer from Lombok after our last minute flight from Bali.
We will definitely be back and I have truly fallen in love with the place.
P.S. I noticed a recent review and mention of the bicycles and wanted to say the hiring of the bicycles with character all add to keeping it real. It is very important on Islands such as this that the locals and staff get to benefit in some way from the tourist 'invasion' and hiring bikes direct from staff/locals is an important part of the way things work so that everyone gets some benefits.
