“Excellent Stay - Relaxing and Peaceful”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

My only negative comment about this property is that it is confusing to get to as they pick up from a different harbor than the main harbor on Lombok and we were not aware of this which caused a bit of a disaster in trying to actually get to the hotel. The hotel will arrange a speedboat for you but they don't clearly call out that you must tell the cab driver to go to Scallywag's Marina rather than the other harbor where the public ferry picks up or you can arrange your own speedboat. If there would have been a simple call out in the e-mail to make sure we tell the cab driver the correct marina, a lot of time and frustration would have been saved so just note that! But once we got there, we had an amazing stay and would definitely recommend.

The rooms are individual bungalows which are very private and relaxing. The outdoor shower is really neat and it also isn't a problem if you shower when it rains as one might expect. You also have a little patio outside of your room in addition so you can sit out there and read, etc. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The AC was also crucial in the humidity and kept the room nice and cool! It rained almost everyday when we were there, but each Bungalow has two large umbrellas that were great for walking around.

The pool is excellent and very warm - great to swim in. There are very comfortable and padded lounge chairs around the pool that are great for relaxing and they have umbrellas for shade. We swam in the pool every day and you can also get drinks right in the pool which was nice and fun.

There are also lots of DVD options that you can watch in your room if you would like. The restaurant is pretty good and we ended up eating there a couple of nights. The breakfast is included and has ready to order omelets which was a great touch. All of the staff is very friendly and try very hard to be quick and accommodating. Also, if it does rain which it often did during the late afternoon, evening - the restaurant is pretty much completely covered so you can stay dry!

Overall the property was extremely relaxing and peaceful which is great as Gili T can get a bit busy. Highly recommend for a nice holiday!!

My second time to Gilli and I am still in love with this place. This time upgraded after a fiew days to Scallywags. I traveled with my brother and we did get the budget Room in the back of this little Resort! The Pool and facilities are amazing and the Breakfast buffet is outstanding. We did book as well with them a day trip to Gilli Air, where we could use the money paid at their resort on the Island. Therefore is was Island hopping to no cost! Why not right. The team is amazing and very helpful and friendly. English is outstanding and nothing seams a problem. We forgot a blow up matrass on Air and thought that’s gone. But the next day they gave it back to us and said you left that behind. How great is that. The room was massive and comfy. No view, but hey you only sleep in the room right. They had minibar, great to chill some things and free drinking water, TV as well and little DVD rental at the pool bar, which you don’t need, but if you get Bali belly then great. The Pool Bar was really a bonus to have and they have anything you need. Overall, yes it might not be the cheapest, but what is really on Gilli, but worth every dollar spend. Thank you all and hope to see you again.

A beautiful little Oasis on a pretty busy island. Great staff, very friendly and helpful and the rooms were beautifully done, very private and comfortable. We didn't love Gili T but we loved Scallywags!

Stayed here for 3 nights in October, great location on the south of the island. Rooms were good, loved the private garden, although gaps in the doors meant cockroaches and other insects got into our room often. Service was good at reception although check out took a long time for some unknown reason. The buffet breakfast was adequate, the evening food was amazing. Only downside for me was there was no sunbathing spot on the beach near the hotel, we did take the day trip to gili air though where we used their excellent sunbeds which was great value for money. Swimming pool was ideal too, We would stay again.

Stayed here for 4 nights with friends. Staff met us at the boat when we arrived and organised a horse and cart for us down tje main street to get to the resort. Whenever we needed anything the staff were always there to help. The food was incredible and the rooms and pool were very nice. Perfect location. We loved every minute!
