After booking another place on gili t but then reading mixed reviews we decided to cancel and book villa gili Bali beach instead and what a decision and stroke of luck it was. Away from the hustle and bustle of the centre but close enough to walk, this place is heaven on earth. The rooms are clean, and well kept with amazing views of the beach and sunsets. The staff friendly and basically leave you to it, it's like your own little villa where drinks are left in the fridge on trust for you to just help yourself and write down what you have taken. The manager asked if we'd like him to arrange any trips for us and yet again another master stroke. for just the 2 of us to share a boat and go snorkelling at 4 different sites with an amazing guide, watching the other boats crammed with 50 odd people all trying in vain to fight over each other to get a glimpse of a turtle when we had 4 all to ourselves was amazing and yet again it was all down to this amazing villa with amazing staff. I cannot rate this highly enough and in my opinion to spend a little more and discover a place like this is worth it's weight in gold. And please if it's not for anything else, you must come for the banana pancakes.
We spent 3 nights at Villa Gili Bali Beach and it was terrific. The pool almost flows over onto the private beach and it's set far enough back from the road so it's quiet at night. Staff are friendly and helpful, and breakfast is great. So NB on this island to find a quiet spot to relax away from the madness of the bicycle and cart filled roads and heaving bars, and this is a peaceful retreat. Close to the action (10min walk) but not too close!
Thanks to the team at the villa!
The villa is outstanding - beautiful, great design, very intimate with only few rooms. The rooms are spacious and beautifully designed. Breakfast is great with good selection and really tasty. On top of that the manager is wonderful - caring for the guests, super friendly, no request was too much trouble for him. We had the most amazing time at the villa and our only regret is that we could not stay longer. Hope to be able to come back some day.
This the best villa on Gili Trawangan by a long way, what makes it so good is the host Rudy along with his staff they make you feel so welcome and can't do enough for you.
The Villa is situated on the quieter side of the island, a few minute bike ride or 10 minute stroll the hub of the island where you can find many more great places to eat like Scallywags.
Rudy arranged fantastic VIP trip to Lombok water falls, monkeys and a excellent evening meal at Katamaran, Senggigi watching the sunset. Again could not fault it, was an experience.
The rooms were immaculate, the staff were impeccable, were always happy and smiling I would be delighted to employ them all anytime.
The facilities at the villa was everything we desired and needed, they had bikes, snorkelling kit, etc at the villa for you to use. I would recommend to try snorkelling just down from Escobar, the variety of fish is like swimming in an aquarium, there are Turtles there as well and exhilarating to get close and see them in their natural habitat.
Special thanks to Rudy for making our daughters birthday so special, we loved the cake, and you made this holiday one we will always treasure.
Have already recommended this villa to everyone I meet it was that good.
Rudy missing your pancakes already!

Beautiful beach front, quiet location and helpful staff make this place a joy to stay at! The head staff member Rudy was so helpful and always there when we needed something. There are only a few rooms so it's never crowded or loud, exactly what we were after for our stay on gili! We can't recommend it enough and when we go back to the island we will surely be staying here again! Well done!
