We spent here 4 days at the beginning of august and even if we had the pics describing the villa.... we didn't expect to find such a beautiful, private, quiet place.
We spent few days but we were sad to leave Villa Saia because we had really a great time.... the weather has been as good as the sea conditions. The villa is something perfect, so elegant starting from the nice bedroom very well equipped, the open bathroom. Breathtaking the private exclusive pool.We had fantastic breakfast just near the pool.
Cindy, Lise e Rod have been really nice and helpful giving us tips about snorkeling interesting points, restaurants and so on..
We wished we could stay there longer...
As others have said very nice indeed. You pay top price and the quality us there. Small details count though, a bedside lamp that worked erratically, shower that was not exactly a torrent and wifi that was a but 'in and out'. That said these are snall niggles and the overall experience was fab. Choice and quality of breakfast was great, great aircon and fan, safe provided and excellent swimming pool. Friendly hosts, who were laid back and made us welcome. We rented two of their three villas and had a great time. Gili air itself is fab
My boyfriend and I stayed four nights at Villa Saia while we were staying at Gili Air. We truly enjoyed our stay. The hostess, Cindy, and the rest of the crew are so helpful and offered to assist with all types of bookings and gave us valuable tips as to restaurants, beach clubs etc. At the moment, Villa Saia has only 3 villas and we found that the service we received was more attentive and personal than at bigger resorts. The villas were beautiful with tasteful interior and the pool was clean and tempting. We enjoyed many afternoons by the pool. Further, the breakfast is delicious. You can chose between three excellent selections, traditional breakfast with eggs, a delicious and sweet breakfast with french toast and crepes and a healthy alternative with a scrumptious smoothie bowl.
The breakfast is served in the private villa garden, which was a nice touch. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back to Villa Saia if we are going back to Gili Air!
Loved gilli air, the people here are so much nicer than gilli T, the villa was modern and private, we took lots of photos of the outside as inspiration for our own, simple but effective, they were very helpful, and hiring the bikes from the villa was so conveint , but being a animal lover my highlight was the villa kitten madha, she was so sweet, and they even let her come stay in our villa with her food milk and water bowls, she slept on our bed, was jst a lovely touch for anyone missing there fur babies back home. Our fav spot to eat was mowies everything we had on the menu was amazing, I think we chose the best villa on the island, the only one thing to mention would be over Ramadan the loud speaker goes with prey every few hour through the night, and I think it is close to the villa, it def makes it a emierse into the culture, but make sure you take up them up on ear plugs, or it can make sleeping or dreams a bit dif or difficult. All in all highly recommend, and if you do choose to stay there give madhu a snuggle she will melt your heart
This was our second trip back to Gili Air and we are glad we stayed here. Villa Saia is on a quiet street yet close to the main strip. We enjoyed the friendly and welcoming staff, and the breakfasts.
It was great that they have bicycles to rent and ear plugs for the early mosque prayer calls! Electricity was intermittent due to maintenance on the island but the generator was helpful.
Everything was comfortable and tidy. We will definitely return :)
Ps. We miss their adorable friendly kitten who came for villa visits
The host were fantastic, friendly, informative and willing to help with anything. Cindy (the host) even cycled to help us order some food when it was raining!
The villa is lovely, it is private, spacious and very comfortable. Finished to a high standard it is a must if staying on Gili Air (which is much nicer than Gili T). The only disappointment is that we weren't here longer!
This villa is everything you could need on gilli air. It's far enough away from the busy harbour.
The villa is well designed with a lovely outdoor bathroom and pool area.
Breakfast was delicious and served beside the pool at a time to please you.
Cindy is very attentive and was readily available to assist with places to visit and restaurants to eat.
Electricity can be intermittent due to off and on supply from the mainland, but there was a generator.
Great place to unwind and dream.
