We stayed in Gili Air in July 2012 for four days after climbing Mt Rinjani coming by small boat up the coast from Sengiggi.
We stayed in the family bungalow with two rooms, air conditioned and a magnificent spacious bathroom on the ground floor. We had a private court yard with the lounge on the verandah, perfect for laying on whilst reading and it was located next to the pool. The kids had their own private room downstairs which they were very happy about and the restuarant was just over the road.
Each morning we would start with a swim in the refreshing ocean, the beach was deserted so you had the whole place to yourself. Breakfast in the beruga is a wonderful way to start the day, fresh fruit and Indonesian food. The staff were very friendly, wifi was available and the location is great to explore the island. The main jetty is just up the road and the massage places are an easy walk. The Mt Rinjani massage recovery program was perfect, combined with snorkeling, swimming, enjoying meals at the many different eating places on offer.
We mainly walked as we enjoyed stopping and looking at the various shops and finding diffetent places to spend the morning. The horse taxi is really good when you want to go to the other end of the island (fixed price no haggling) and it passes through some of the back streets so you have a different perspective. The whole island is very easy to walk around. It is a lovely place to enjoy, highly recommended.
