The rooms are good, but the open bathroom means that mosquitoes dash into your room every time you open the door, specially at night.

I asked one of the staff to organise a transfer to Gili Meno. He was unpleasant and made it hard. He eventually suggested a transfer with his friend, which was overpriced (400 k rupiah, compared to 250 k which we end up paying through the dive shop next door).

Also, the bar/restaurant shuts at 4pm, so to have a juice or anything else you have to go next door and carry cash around, as opposed to just charge it to the room.

Breakfast was good.

Room Tip: choose the rooms at the back (11, 12a, 12b), otherwise you'll have people walking past your room all day long

Stayed for 1 night.
Pros

This only happens in the new buildings,the old buildings have no plants in e toilet.

Since we went to gili trawangan on low season, we think it's overprice with a lack on something. There was no refrigeratorand they didn't inform us that tv cable in our room was trouble. I prefer breakfast in buffet.

i don't think i will be back at this hotel again..sorry

We spent a few peaceful days here with extended family and had a very nice time. The rooms were very comfortable with an outdoor bathroom. Would have liked a fridge. There was a pool in the front but we preferred to swim in the sea which was right in front of the resort. Deck chairs and beach towels were provided and drinks were brought down to us. Breakfast was excellent. Plenty of restaurants and bars nearby as well. Staff were friendly and helpful. Wifi was available most of the time. I enjoyed this small resort and would stay again.

We stayed at Bale Sampan over Christmas for 7 nights and had a very enjoyable stay. Staff are very friendly and booking was very easy with all our tranfers organised from Praya airport to the island and then on to our next accommodation in Kuta Lombok at the end of our stay. Great value with a delicious breakfast included and free wifi. We stayed in room 2 which is right in front of the pool, the room was clean, the bed comfortable and the partially outdoor bathroom a bit special. I would not hesitate to recommend Bale Sampan to friends.

Room Tip: Definitely worth the extra for a pool view room - we stayed in room 2
