“Very cute resort with a warm Italian touch”
Reviewed 7 July 2010

We spent the second part of our honeymoon here and we had a very nice time. We were happy the hotel is set in a more quiet place on the island, because some parts near the beach can get crowded (especially at the end of June- beginning of July).
Hotel is cute, charming and beautiful. Especially the staff and Antonio the owner make this place a second home! Rooms are spacious and beautifully designed. Only the bathroom was a bit disappointing because of a rather bad smell (bad plumming?) and really a lot lot of flies. I know it's the tropics, so I never complain about bugs, but the amount of flies was sometimes annoying. But just tell the staff and they are more than willing to clean it up for you. Food is really good here, especially if you like Italian food. What we found very impressive is that many staff member spoke excellent Italian!! Not surprising that we sometimes felt being in "little Italy" ;-) which was very amusing!
Swimming pool is amazing and very relaxing after a day at the beach! still i wouldn't recommend this place for honeymooners, because you don't have a lot of privacy. The bungalows are all facing the pool, so when you open the curtains or go swimming you're almost certain to see the staff walking by or other guests at the pool. Which is in itself not a problem of course!! But on a honeymoon it might be.
Still, we had an amazing time at the gorgeous gili's and Luce d'alma is a cute gem of a resort on this mostly backpacker's island.

We stayed for 6 nights in Luce D'alma on our honeymoon. The rooms are lovely and spacious with a nice lounge area. The pool is fantastic and we had a room on the sunny side which was great. Having access to their bikes was essential as it's too hot to walk very far. Make sure you check the bikes before you go out as they vary in quality - we rode to the other side of the island and the wheel broke on one and we had to push it back which was not ideal in 30 degree heat. Also make sure you get one with a bell as you'll need it on the main strip and check the lights work for the night time. And avoid cycling around the north east side of the island as the sand on the path is too deep and it's impossible to cycle. The west and south is much easier. The one thing i was very disappointed by was the lack of collection from our boat. We had emailed to ask how to get there but had no response. When we arrived from the boat there was no one to meet us. Eventually we managed to get a horse&cart there which we were overcharged for which wasn't the best way to arrive. It would be a nice touch for the hotel to collect you and drop you back at the boat - it's not very far at all and would make arrival much more relaxing. Breakfast at hotel is fresh and plentiful - cake of the day was a fun idea! I had a massage which was fine but was supposed to be 80 mins but was only just over 60. Overall the staff were very sweet, room excellent, pool a real treat and food really good.

We stayed on Gili T for 7 nights in October 2009, 3 nights at Gili villas and 4 nights at Luca D'Alma. We booked directly with Lucio and he was a fantastic host. We had an early flight and the staff made us breakfast and coffees and made sure the transfer went smoothly, from the donkey to the boat to the car taking us to the airport. The hotel is in the centre of the island in the middle of banana plantations and we loved the privacy and quiet of returning to the hotel. You are able to use their bikes free of charge to reach all the busier parts of the island about 10 minutes ride away on paved surfaces. We found these bike rides a lot of fun. Previously we hired a bike and rode around the whole island-on soft sand. Do not bother doing this. It will take two hours and there is no where to go out to swim. The hotel has sun beds and umbrellas and a staff member to watch your bike on a designated part of the eastern side of the beach. It is a great spot to head out for a snorkel and drift dive. The hotel was clean and plush. Lovely soaps and body products were provided which was nice. We had a massage at the spa and I thought it was average. We ate breakfast here daily but prefer to get out and experience all the other places on the island for other meal times.

We have stayed here twice in the past 12 months. It is great, agree with everything said by others. You can't go wrong when you stay here.

We found this hotel by Tripadvisor and the reviews were universally glowing. They were right. This hotel is blissful, with a gorgeous pool right outside the big, beautiful suites and the service is just fabulous. It is about 800metres up from the bustling south beach by bike which makes it much more relaxing than those on the main drag, but easily accessible. Everyone was incredibly helpful and in fact could not do enough. Is fantastic value for money.

One tip however would be to try to negotiate a sunny side cottage as one side did seem to get less sun (if that's what you are after!) at times than the other.

Don't go anywhere else!

We stayed in Luce D'Alma for 3 nights during a 10 day holiday to Bali. Our stay in Luce D'Alma was without doubt the highlight of our entire trip. The setting is fab and the location is good as it is a little outside the main town so it is really peaceful but they provide all guests with bikes so it is really easy to cycle down for dinner, the beach etc. The rooms are gorgeous and nothing is too much trouble for the owners - they were so attentive and helpful. The food was also great. Would highly recommend!

We booked this hotels based on the reviews on TA. We had a great time and as commented numerous times - the pool is gorgeous, as are the rooms.... Antonio, the co-owner, is a great host and makes a real effort to make guests feel welcome. He was especially good with our 2 year old, who still talks about him..

But don't expect perfection, the staff try very hard but lack a level of competence (e.g. a waiter tried for several minutes to open a screw top bottle of wine with a cork screw) and the food is not great. Having said that, I doubt if there is a better hotel on the Island, and having access to the the bikes is a real bonus (they even had child seat for our toddler.)
