the staff, food and atmosphere here was the absolute best. There is not one thing we could think of to make this trip any better. Thanks to the Scallywags crew !

We stayed at Scallywags for 5 nights in May and it was one of the nicest places on our trip. The rooms were well designed and spacious with small private terrace gardens out the front and open-air bathrooms at the back. The pool area had loungers and day beds and was a great place to relax - we never found it too busy as there weren't too many rooms. The location is an easy walk to lots of bars and restaurants - including a good sunset spot to the south - but set back enough to be peaceful.

The breakfasts were a buffet with cereals, fruit and yogurts, along with omlettes, pancakes and toast cooked to order. The food at the restaurant was really good with a good mix of dishes and some great cocktails. We also did the day trip over to their other Scallywags restaurant in Gili Air which was lovely, with a bigger sandy beach area than on Gili T.

The staff were very friendly and helpful - did have a bit of confusion with dates when trying to book which meant a bit of email to-ing and fro-ing but everyone was always polite and did their best to help. Would highly recommend Scallywags as a peaceful retreat at a good value price.

This resort is in a centralised location convenient to many restaurants and bars. The rooms are very clean with outdoor bathrooms and the restaurant food was very fresh with a great selection.
My only gripe would be the pool as it was quite merky and could use a good dose of chlorine but apart from that loved the resort and the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you.

Dear Perthlozp

Thanks for your favourable review, regarding the merky pool problem, this was not due to lack of chlorine but was due to our eco soak away from the backwash getting blocked up. It has now been resolved and our fresh water swimming pool is back crystal clear.

All the best

We had planned to stay 3 nights in Scallywags and were looking forward to being in Gili trawangan given the great reviews. Although the rooms are beautiful and quite, we decided to leave after one night as the hotel presented a huge disappointment to us : there is no direct access to the beach in the south part of the island where the hotel is! You either have to take the boat to scallywags in gili air (~10$ per trip including lunch, with only 2 trips per day) or walk 15 minutes to go to the public beach... Why go this far not to have access to the beach? Management was very comprehensive about it and we changed without problem... We came back everynight for dinner though as food was great.

This is a lovely, small hotel to stay in. The staff were friendly. The pool is great and plenty of lounges to go around. The restaurant has fabulous food. Breakfast is simple but that suits me. It was quiet even though it is close to the nightlife. The rooms are nicely decorated. The outdoor bathroom is great however it was difficult to master the shower. There is a small court yard at the front of the room that allowed us to relax in privacy. They had a great special to visit their other restuarant on Gili Air for the price of lunch.

My husband and I traveled to Gili T on a long honeymoon trip around SE Asia last summer. We had such a great stay - 6 nights - that I had to write up a review. The rooms were a great value - much nicer than we expected. Rooms looked just like the pictures, and we adored the outdoor batheroom. Prices for a soda, beer, or even local wine from the mini fridge were comparable to the mini marts on the island.

The service was fantastic, our room was always prompltly cleaned while we went out for a morning dive, and the service at breakfast and around the pool was prompt. What really touched me was on our last day we checked out, and headed to the pier to wait for the Gili Cat. I apparently forgot a pair of sandals in the room and once of the staff (bartender I think) showed up at the pier (a 10 minute bike) with my shoes! I was so suprised and extremely grateful.

Lastly, the boat trip over to Gili Meno was wonderful, the hotel's sister beach club was stunning, worth it go for an afternoon. Loved the room, value, service and restaurant. Definitely stay here!

I was at Scallywags with Donna and family and friends last month. Dave the manager proved extremely helpful and friendly and we could not fault the staff in any way. There is quite a lot to choose from at Gili T but I will be going back to Scallywags. Also the organisation by the staff for transferres to and from the island were very well coordinated.
Thanks Scallywags.
