Situated a short 3-minute walk south of the jetty in the lively central district of Gili Trawangan, Pesona Beach Resort & Spa is an ideal place for couples and friends who are looking to chill out, but also be close to the action Gili T is famous for. Our rooms are thoughtfully furnished with quality in mind and all have en-suite bathrooms and aircon. We recently opened poolside rooms that feature reclaimed teak furniture and sliding doors that open up directly on to our new 2nd pool and tropical garden. This private area is also where top-rated Azure Spa at Pesona Resort is located. For guests looking for a bit of adventure, Dive Central Gili, our PADI 5-star scuba diving center is ready to take certified divers or those wanting to explore the underwater world for the first time on 3 daily dives. Our restaurant and bar, famous for its vibrant Indian food, is open from 07:30 to 01:00 and also features healthy international cuisine, imported spirits, wine, and exotic sheesha pipes.

Stayed a few nights in the poolside room and it was amazing. Everything was very clean and comfortable. Anything I needed was brought to me with haste. The restaurant was also a highlight for my stay. In the morning and early afternoon they have a mixed western menu that

It looks like you got to experience everything our resort has to offer from our #1 rated spa on the island, Azure, #1 rated dive shop on the island, Dive Central Gili, our newest renovation of rooms, Poolside King, and our two different menus of Western and Indian food. Looks like the only thing you didn't experience (or not mention) was our sheesha! We offer 17 different imported flavours, I can imagine you must have tried blueberry - mint as this is one of the dive instructors favourites, and I know they love to share over a round of beers or during our Power Hour every Thursday with buy 1 get 1 free!! Thanks for the visit Mike, it's really nice to experience when friends turn into family as this is a top goal of ours to make everyone feel at home. We look forward to welcoming you back again next time. Kind regards, Alissa

Booked persona via dive central which shares the premises. Had a lovely stay, room was clean, safe worked and the pool while small was pretty cool. Staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to help especially when the boat from Bali had been cancelled on a number

Thank you for your kind words H8398SVjimd. We partner together with Dive Central Gili to offer Dive & Stay packages to novice or experienced divers. One of the reason this is so great is we organise everything for you including transportation, accommodation, dive course and most meals. This is only offered through our website or by emailing us which is a great reason to book direct! info@pesonaresort.com We look forward to welcoming you back next time for a new course! Kind regards, Alissa

Hello 99erlenda, glad to hear you loved our rooms! We bought brand new top of the line King Koil mattresses a few months ago for every room so no matter which room type you book, your stay is comfortable. Really sorry about our staff, I will admit some of them can be lazy at times. We have recently promoted two of our really good waiters to "Captains" in hopes they can help me watch the staff more. I promise I will talk to all of the waiters and make sure they are paying more attention. For the boat ticket, the published price online with Eka Jaya boat company is 550,000 IDR. We use Eka Jaya as they are the largest boat, very cold air-conditioning with good customer service, this price also includes car transport to general areas in Bali. We charge the same as published price as we have to go through the effort and time of booking the ticket for you. Of course, you can wander down the street by yourself and book a cheaper ticket directly with another company, but from my experience, other boats can be unreliable. For a budget backpacker with lots of patience, this is a great option to save your money! Kind regards, Alissa

This hotel was nice and clean, with helpful and friendly staff. On booking i requested a double room, which was confirmed, however on arrival I was told this was no longer available and so I had been 'upgraded'. I was shown to my room at the very back of the property and when i

Hello Jennifer, I just wanted to touch base about the review you left for us. First off, we did make the mistake of having 3 single beds rather than 1 large bed so I do apologize. I will make sure there is better communication with my staff for future guests. I spoke to you twice during your stay and recommended a few places, I hope you found everything you were looking for as you are right, we are in the busy section of Gili T! I am confused as to why you said you were downgraded when you stayed in the room you booked? We only have 1 room type of Large Room with Private Terrace, which you booked on Agoda, this is our cheapest room so a downgrade would not be possible as it is already the lowest cost. The room was renovated last year and there are brand new mattresses in every room so I hope it was still comfortable. Our front pool is used for diving during the day however guests are still welcome to swim or lounge around it. Our back pool is shoulder depth and about 25m long. I am sorry there was a miscommunication about an upgrade and I hope you can explain it to me further in an email at info@pesonaresort.com Kind regards, Alissa

I got to the spa at Pesona every 2 weeks because it is the only place on the island where I can get a good quality, strong massage. I haven't stayed in the hotel but the luxury rooms looks amazing and the areas are always clean.

Thank you, Chloe, for this lovely review! If you think Azure Spa is nice, you should try our spa-quality amenities in every Pesona Resort room, our super comfortable beds, and the ability to click through all the international cable channels- there's nothing better than booking a little "stay-cation" the next time you have a few days off... We've also just upgraded a few of our spa treatments with new especially paired organic spa products from Sensatia Botanicals (the Luxury Body Scrub with rose sea salt, kaolin clay mask, and rose body butter is my personal fav). See you for your next appointment! Warmest, Jen

Hello Azrulniza, our room rates do not include an airport transfer however we would be more than happy to assist you in this process. If you are coming from Bali it is a car transfer to the harbour, a 2-hour fast boat and a short 2-minute walk to Pesona. If you are coming from the Lombok airport we can arrange a private car and 10-minute speedboat. Please email me directly from our website to get the best prices and discuss your transfer and room rates further. Kind regards, Alissa

Hello, Harnik. I apologize for the late reply. Currently the resort is closed for cleaning and resupplying. The buildings were checked by our builder and all but 2 of the rooms are ready for guests. We have decided to postpone our reopening until the 1st of September to make sure all aspects of the resort are fully operational including the restaurant, spa, and dive center. The island is currently open to tourists and some fast boats have begun their routes on the 18th of August. I am not sure about the party boat, I suggest you contact them directly, but snorkeling is awesome right now. There are already some restaurants open and I believe more will be opening this week. It is our hope that the island will be back to normal in early September. If you have specific questions about your booking, please write us an email. Kind regards, Jen

Hi Goro, There is a fastboat service from Gili Gede to Gili Trawangan or you have the option of a car transfer over land in Lombok and a shorter speedboat ride to Gili Trawangan. We are happy to help you with transfers through our affiliate company, EasyGili Transfers. You are welcome to contact us directly through email or book directly on the EasyGili Transfers website. The deluxe rooms are newer with all modern amenities, but the chief difference is the deluxe bungalows have a balcony. Please send us an email from our website if you have any further questions. We look forward to welcoming you to Gili Trawangan and Pesona Beach Resort & Spa.
