“A really idyllic hideaway!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

My mother, a friend and me, we spent 5 days at Villa Sayang on the beautiful island of Gili Meno in November 2013. The island itself is like a little paradise. And staying at Villa Sayang made our holidays even so much better!
The beautiful Villa Sayang was designed with a lot of care for lovely little details in a paradise-like garden setting, which gives it a romantic touch. The numerous seating & relaxing areas make it a very comfortable place to unwind and enjoy.
And the hosts, Silvia and Saleh are amazing! With their friendliness, great care and helpfulness they made our stay unforgettable! They helped us to arrange excursions and snorkeling trips, gave good advise about eating places and really made sure that we have a good time. We totally enjoyed the home-made bread, jam, ham and the pineapple wine, which they offer. I also love the fact that Silvia and Saleh are very concerned about the environment and always try to reduce the impact on the environment at their best.
All in all it was a fantastic and unforgettable stay with nothing to complain about at all! We will surely come back again!

“Lovely property, wonderful hospitality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My husband and I stayed at Villa Sunset (on the same property as Villa Sayang) for four nights in the third week of September. It is situated on a lovely large piece of land, only a few hundred meters from the beach. We shared a kitchen with three nice young women from Germany, who were staying in the suite next door.

We truly enjoyed the hospitality and kindness of Saleh. (Silvia was away the week we were there). He helped us organize an excellent snorkelling expedition, which took us to several locations around the island. We were delighted to see four green sea turtles during that trip! Saleh also brought around snacks in the afternoon, including some absolutely delightful pineapple fritters! He came to the dock for both our arrival and departure, and shared lots of fascinating information about Gili Meno and Lombok during our stay.

Our accommodation was simple but pleasant. The front porch is a nice place to enjoy the afternoon sun and the sounds of calls to prayer from the nearby mosque. There are no screens on the windows, but the mosquito netting kept us protected from insects at night.

We would definitely recommend Villa Sunset to anyone looking for an authentic island experience with gracious, caring hosts.

“Idyllic island retreat with perfect hosts”

Gili Meno is as unique as it is beautiful - real island fantasy material - and the bungalow at Villa Sayang provided a cool, tranquil, comfortable little oasis for us to enjoy it from while still preserving the special feel of the island. There are actually about three accommodations at Villa Sayang and we stayed in a free-standing bungalow with a queen size bed, separate bathroom, kitchen, front deck and a hammock. The accommodation is simple but very comfortable and has been designed in consideration of the island's ecology with local or recycled building materials. The shower uses cold bore water which is actually rather pleasant in a tropical climate, and there are splashes of luxury with a unique carved hand basin and cool tile work. The location is great, friendly locals offered us directions as we wheeled our bags along the 10 minute walk from where the boat had dropped us off - it was that easy. We could have taken a cidomo (horse and cart) but we simply didn't need to, and the walk through Gili Meno's rural heart was part of the fun. Silvia and Saleh themselves are a good reason to stay here - they are are wonderful hosts who managed to make us feel welcome and cared for with their warm hospitality. We particularly enjoyed their home made bread, mango jam and spiced fried taro - absolutely delicious! Personally I enjoyed sharing a couple of drinks with them both tremendously. At the end of the street is a beautiful eastern beach with views over Mount Rinjani, complete with the Jetty Bar for a beer or cocktail and some rock tunes on sunset. I would return here in a heartbeat!

“The best holiday we've ever had - magical”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013
2
people found this review helpful

We cannot say enough good things about Villa Sayang and Gili Meno. The island is a dreamy, magical, peaceful place. And Sylvia and Saleh are wonderful hosts. Villa Sayang is simple but thoughtful and has everything you need for a great holiday.
Saleh got us snorkels and masks, he changed money for us, he booked boat tickets for us, he found pizza for the kids our first night, he and Sylvia stepped in to provide last-minute childcare so we could go diving when our plan fell through. They were unobtrusive but super helpful.
To make the villa perfect, I'd do a few things like beef up the kitchen utensils, stock a few basics in the fridge, provide beach towels, bigger fans in the bedrooms, and hang a hammock underneath a shady tree.
But bring your towels, and maybe your own string hammock, and throw some emergency provisions in your suitcase, and you're set.
A warning to light sleepers, the villa is very close to the island mosque and the morning call to prayer is long, loud and starts at 4 am. It's followed closely by the island roosters.
The beach is a 5 minute walk - it would be nice to be able to see and hear it from the cottage, but there's also something lovely about Villa Sayang's sense of being tucked away in a garden, very private and peaceful.
We spent all day on the beach - sometimes we wandered around the island (and everyone we passed said a cheery hello and welcomed us) - and most days we just lay in the shade of a lapa eating amazing Sasak food, sipping a fresh pineapple and coconut shake, and snorkelling out to drift in the currents with the sea turtles. The beach patch at the end of the path from Villa Sayang has the best reef on the island about 20 m straight out.
In our week we checked out all the other accommodation options and can say with confidence that Villa Sayang is the best of them - and amazing value.

Looking for a place to stay for some time I found the villa Sayang and the hosts Silvia and Saleh on Gili Meno. The villa is part of a spacious peaceful tropical garden and offers a private sphere because of the broad-mindedness. All rooms are well decorated and have european function and hygienc standards. The hosts will give any support around the vacation on the island or the stay in Indonesia. Villa Sayang is recommendable for all travelers searching a locality to relax without missing a higher convenience.
I came to friendly hosts and leaved friends.
