Fantastic little hotel. The rooms were spacious and clean, the outside bathroom was fantastic and really added to the experience. The staff were fantastic and were alot of fun to be around.
The great thing about Scallywags on Gili T was the fact that you only have to walk out of the hotel to be on top of everything.
The scallywags resturant is the best on the island.
I would most definately come back here and reccomend to anyone!

Stayed here for a few nights in April 2014. Well appointed rooms with great inclusions. Mini bar with drinks the same as you buy at their bar out front which are very reasonably priced. Power points that take Australian plugs. The outside bathroom was a treat too. Close to everything. Would stay again and recommend to others.

Hi Essie,

We are glad we helped to make your holiday an enjoyable one. It is great to be able to sit on your balcony & enjoy a drink relaxing or while getting ready for the night & know the prices are the same as the restaurant. Why shouldn't they be?

Thanks for your review, see you next time.

If you would like a beautiful central, quiet beach front base whilst staying on Guili T then this is your spot. With clean and fresh rooms set back from the beach, tropical en-suite outside bathrooms, Scallywags also has a lovely quiet pool that is like an oasis...It also has an amazing beachside restaurant- possibly the best in town- where you can have delicious breakfast (included) overlooking the sea and the best evening seafood bbq the island has to offer. Try their fresh tuna and sesame seed rocket salad for lunch which so fresh it is off-the-scale. We thought it had the best vibe for evening cocktails and dinner with a large menu range of too-good-to-choose choices. Good atmosphere for unwinding into holiday mode whilst also being a hub for visitors from all over the island to flock to come evening time due to the unbeatable food. I even left a pair of earrings in the safe by mistake and they managed to send them over by boat to Lombok the next day after I realised- that is what I call service. Couldn't recommend it more....

I normally find something to complain about but I can't find anything bad to say about Scallywags.
The location is perfect - you step off their own speedboat straight into the bar/ restaurant where you are welcomed with a free drink- and the view from the restaurant is to die for.
The rooms are very new and beautifully equipped and serviced with an enclosed front courtyard and a very private outside bathroom set in a garden.
The food is probably some of the best on the island and the staff were amazing.
On top of everything else it is great value for money and is one of the few places that do not charge any tax or service charge on your purchases.
Why would you want to stay anywhere else?

Room Tip: The newer rooms run from no.11 upwards

What a holiday hotel! Excellent caring staff who are so friendly and will drop everything to help you out. If something did not work it was fixed immediately. One of our crew was severely ill on the last day of check out and they let her stay in the room till we needed our connections, after the official checkout time. I can not praise this wonderful hotel enough. We have twice stayed at Villa Ombak in the past and we think Scallywags is a 100% better than Ombak. Scallywags is smaller and more personal and we felt much safer and securer here.
The breakfast is fresh and has good variety with the best view over the ocean.
We all thought the barbecue was delicious and the lunch meals were really tasty.
We love Indonesian food and it was so good to eat it at Scallywags.
We will be back-and looking forward to it!

Room Tip: Central rooms are the best, more peaceful.

Thanks for trying us out this trip, we are super pleased we met your expectations & hopefully more. Our aim is to keep Scallywags at the size that is friendly & warm providing personal touches.

From start to finish our stay here was awesome. We turned up without a booking and were given a great price for 3 nights. Our room was spacious, clean and had lovely decor...the outside bathroom is beautiful!! The staff are lovely. The restaurant attached to the hotel has an amazing bbq at dinner time. If we returned to Gili T this would be the only place we would stay! Highly recommend!

Scallwags was the perfect place to stay, as it had great modern rooms, very quite, and value for money, and still close to all the action.

We both needed that holiday and (Tanner the manager) made our ten days exactly what we needed...RELAXATION.

The food was also very good as we ate here each morning and 5 nights due to other options were not as fresh as Scallywags. Plus no hidden taxes on your bill. As most places on the Gili islands have taxes on top of your existing bills!

If you want peace and quite. this is the place (we could not hear the mosque or any back packers), this is defiantly the place for you.

Can not wait to get back :)
