“Ok but not worth the price”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

We've booked 4 nights in Villa Rumah Kayu and we had a pleasent stay. The staff is nice, though only 1 guy speaks english and wasn't around all the time. Breakfast was nice, but they don't have anything else to eat. It's located a 15/20 minutes walk from the action which is nice because it's quite, but anoying if you need something. The room was small and didn't had a window and te open air bathroom didn't had hot water all the time. The pool is nice but still it's too pricy for what you get.
Besides that, Trawangan is not the paradise we expected any more. It's too crowded, the prices for dining and activities are too high and the diving is poor.
Gili Air is more quite and nicer.

I stayed in Rumah Kayu back in April whilst on my travels around Bali and the Gilis. I had a great time here, the staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean and the swimming pool was a nice place to chill out!! It's only a short work to the beach, bars and restaurants but far enough away to get a decent nights sleep if you don't want to here the music at night. I will definitely stay here again!

The photos on booking.com are almost all of the higher-end rooms at this 'hotel'. Our room had no windows and was not ready (clean) when we arrived. The staff were friendly but a bit useless, they also had their friends over every ngiht to sing and drink by the pool - not great if you want an early night/don't want to join in with them.
They kept making excuses for why the wifi wasn't working saying it was out on the whole island (not true, seemed like everywhere except Rumah Kayu had working wifi) and on the website it doesn't specify that they have only cold showers. The room was more like what you'd expect for $30, not $60+.
If we had paid $20-30 I would have been happy with Villa Rumah Kayu but at the price they are charging I would expect them to clean the room daily or change the sheets/towels occasionally. We were there for 4 nights and this did not happen automatically. If i was staying somewhere cheap then I wouldn't mind that but this claims to be a 3* hotel. Also the breakfast is a terrible omlette. Better than nothing but again it's more of a hostel style breakfast.
So again, it was friendly and relaxed but hugely overpriced. If it was cheaper and didn't claim to be 3* then I would not have a problem with this hotel however it was not at all what we expected.
