The vill has an interesting design and is very comfortable. You are basically chilling outside and showering outside. THe rooms are closed off with A/C. The staff is very friendly. They put a Christmas tree up for us! Lots of mosquitoes so come prepared.

This is a great villa if you have a small group (2 bedrooms only) - the design and set-up is really nice, and it's far from the madding crowd on the busy beach front strip.

The villa is quite self-sufficient, and even has a kitchenette. The lounge is the best part!

Some of the fittings and attachments are old, and occasionally break down, but the ever-present villa staff are attentive and respond promptly. The other annoyance are the mosquitoes, but there's only so much you can do about that.

The 5 of us enjoyed our stay immensely.

We stayed here for 5 nights in early September, and were so happy to have chosen Gili Joglo for our base on the Gili's. It was an oasis, so quiet and peaceful. Some of the things we were worrying about before we arrived, such as the noise from the infamous parties, or from the local mosque's, were non-existent. We were spoilt for 5 nights!

The villa itself is a great space, particularly for either two couples, or a larger family, as both bedrooms have their own bathrooms, and the living area is a great communal space that opens out to a lovely courtyard. The beach is literally a minute's walk away, and probably the best beach on the island. Our little boy loved the horse and carts, and we would definitely recommend hiring a glass bottom boat for a snorkelling tour. If your budget can stretch that far, get a private boat rather than a group tour, as they tend to squeeze 20 people onto the small boats.

The reason I gave this 4 stars is that the villa probably needs a bit of a spruce up (given that it’s marketed as a 4 star property), particularly the bathrooms, as they look a bit tired. However, that's being very picky, and it certainly didn't affect our holiday in any way.

Overall, a great place to base yourself on the island, if you’re looking for an oasis away from the hustle and bustle.....

Gili goglo was so much more than we expected, it was the highlignt of our trip ! We were a little concerned when the horse &cart turned off the beach "road but it stops after about 100 meters.
What made up for not having a beach front location was the privacy and quietness of the property.In fact,the beach was a minute away.The villa is spacious,comfy and very clean.The staff is lovely and can;t do enough for you,every day we had a delicious breakfast served in our villa at any time we wanted.We communicate only via emails with the owners during our booking process and they were away when we stayed there but everything was organized as we requested,baby cot,and babysitter for our 8 month old baby girl.The villa in which we beautiful and it really felt like a home.A charming place,run by charming people,with charming staff.I will definitely be back

It was our second trip to Bali and first one to Gili, and I must say that it was a phenomenal decision to visit Gili Islands and a fantastic decision to get a villa instead of staying at a hotel. In that respect, I doubt if any accommodation could beat Villa Joglo in terms of its location which is central and yet quiet, since the villa is located in a quieter lane parallel to the main (noisy and crowded) beach road, a mere two minute walk from the main beach and near all the shops and restaurants. The owners, Alina and Didier are really friendly and very hospitable, and their staff (Yudi and the boys) who look after the property really looked after us and were available 24/7 with a smile. The villa itself is gorgeous!! it's spacious, elegant, clean and comfortable and a great place to hang out after a day out at the beach. We loved Joglo's version of "room service" as most nights we dined in and Yudi and the boys were always ready and willing to bike out to a favorite restaurant (great Thai and Italian) and bring take-away for us. We stayed 10 nights at the Joglo and look forward to visiting again.
