“Lovely villas but......”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

We were upgraded to a lovely villa with its own plunge pool and the staff were friendly and courteous. The accommodation is great however be aware the food at the restaurant, with the exception of the 2 or 3 local dishes, is inedible. We would stay here again but definitely eat down the road at Ko Ko Mo resort.

Location is perfect, just outside the busy part of Trawangan. We, family of 5, stayed in villa #6 with private pool. Spacious and delicate rooms, bathrooms and living area.
The restaurant at the beach is a lovely location, and our youngest loved to clime up in the tree houses and eat there.

Compared with other resorts these are the cons:
- Staff was forgetting orders and sometimes we got the feeling they were speaking about us.
- Cycles you can rent in the front desk are almost impossible to use, old and broken.
- We had breakfast included. If we would like to eat in our villa we had to pay full price, meaning twice the price as already included.

We stayed here for a few nights and we were a little disappointed. after reading so many good reviews I think my expectations were a bit high.

Pros:
- Great location
- great service - The staff was very friendly and welcoming when we got to the reception.
- Glass bottom tour coordinated by the hotel was great

Cons:
- When we walked in the villa the lock for one of the rooms didn't worked (rooms are not connected between them and/or the dinning room) and this villa was wallless in one of the sides (was facing the next property). due to the missing wall and the lock issue we felt that our privacy and safety can be compromised. In this same villa the towels and curtains were stained. In addition the first night there the power went down and the a/c in one of the villas stopped working. next day we talked with the front desk and they changed us from that villa to a different one which we appreciate. We felt much safer in the next villa that was assigned to us...
- The curtains and the towels in the new villa were great, but I left my tote bag open with a close bag of M&M's inside. Next morning I found M&Ms all over my bag.... apparently over night an unidentified animal was hungry and went over my bag and ate the M&Ms .... I went to the front desk to explain the situation and they just apologize and offer to pay for the M&Ms bag...

Room Tip: there is free wifi but the reception is not good.

The trawangan resort is amazing. Only a 5 min walk from the main road - far enough that it's nice and quiet but really easy to get to restaurants and bars.
Breakfast is amazing and being able to have it on the beach is perfect. Try it in a beach treehouse one morning too.
Rooms are great too. The only note of caution is about the outdoor bathrooms. They're completely private but can be a little hot and often a few insect friends will join you in the bathroom. It's great if you're that kind of person (you are on an Indonesian island after all) but if you're a bit bug-phobic then ask for a room with an indoor bathroom.
There are 2 beautiful and quiet pools and massage available too.
Id definitely return there if I visited gili t again.

We stayed at the Trawangan for a week for our wedding, booking the whole resort for our friends and family.
The resort is awesome (my favourite place to stay by far), I did not have one meal I didn't love and the cocktails are to die for!
The staff are the best part of the whole experience at the Trawangan resort, everyone went above and beyond to make our stay and our wedding week amazing and I cannot thank them enough!

We can't wait to return!
Love J & T xx

My boyfriend and I stayed in a standard room for 1 week in June this year. The room, whilst not the largest, was beautifully decorated, spotless and instantly felt like home. The bed was massive! The small terraces out the front offered additional space and an extra element of privacy. The outdoor bathrooms were lovely and spacious with a powerful (and hot!) shower. Breakfast was some of the best on the island and the Eggs Benedict was a personal favourite...and you couldn't beat the view! We had a massage by the pool as a birthday treat which was excellent and good value. The only downside was the pool which had far too much chlorine and made it quite unpleasant to swim in, which was a shame. But we preferred the beach anyway! The hotel also surprised us with a birthday cake which was a lovely touch. Very private and down the much nicer and quieter end of the island. Only a 5 min walk to some of the nicest restaurants on the island, and 10 to the main hustle and bustle. So close enough to the activity but far enough away for it to feel very quiet and private, especially when the parties on the main strip were in full flow! Would definitely recommend, especially for couples. Thanks Trawangan Resort! :)

I really recommend this hotel. I loved everything. The people were so friendly, the room was amazing, restaurant great. You do not want to leave. It is close to the center although not to close so you do not hear any noise by night.
