Reviewed 24 January 2014 via mobile

Kind of a long walk from the harbour, but not in the main tourist area wich was a big plus for us. We jus spent a week here with our sixteen month doughter, the staff was really nice and helpfull and the food was good.

The price was a bit higher for the rooms that we were used to in indonesia but everything is bit more in gili's.

Our room was nice and tidy and was cleaned every morning. Sheets were clean and the "outdoor shower" was nice. The breakfust was delivered to our terrace every morning and was great.

Stayed: January 2014, travelled with family

spent my holiday on gili air and stayed at star bar and bungalows , a lovely little place on the north side of the island
the rooms here are nice and clean and the restaurant makes nice food . for breakfast i always had their homemade bread . the staff are really freindly and are willing to help you organize snorkel trips and other things
just outside the hotel you can snorkel and i was lucky seeing turtles and of coarse a lot of nice fishes .
i will come back to star bar and i will also recommend other people to go there ...

We went there during Ramadan this year, so the island was not really crowded. Thus, there was not much happing in the evenings.

The Bungalows are a 15-20min walk (with backpacks) from the habour.

As it is a budget accomodation, the fan room was ok but nothing special. Cleanliness of the room was ok but bedsheets had stains. From outside, a bad sewer smell came into our bathroom.

The windows have no mosquito net which should be available at any budget accomodation!

Meals at the bar are ok as well. Unfortunately, the staff members only speak poor English and are not very friendly. Tables and bar desk were not very clean. For example, as we left at 7:30 am, the bar desk was not cleaned from the evening before.

The area is definitely good for snorkeling but do not expect an amazing beach for sunbathing (there are far better beaches on Gili T). If you want to swim, bring bathing shoes.

At Star Bar and Bungalows you have the best location in Air. A short walk from the busy strip and a short walk from sunset side. It's placed at the beach, so you fall a sleep to the sound of the turquiose blue waves. Definitely good value for your money.
Nice staff, good bar - brilliant.

When i came to gili air i hadn´t decided where to stay. I walked by star bar and started to chat with the people there and decided to stay there for 2 nights but ended up staying for 2 weeks! It seemed like a relaxing and nice place to stay and that was very true! It is located almost right on the beach and also on the best snorkeling-spot on the whole island, according to locals. I tried snorkeling for the first time there and saw turtles, sea snakes and a lot of beutiful fishes the very first day. After that i was snorkeling every single day and were never dissapointed. It´s a really relaxing atmosphere around star bar and the resturant/bar is a perfect place to hang out & meet new people and chat with the friendy and fun staff. It´s just a short walk on the beach to the best resturants and also close to the even more quiet part of the island. The room i was staying in was a standard room with twin beds and a faan. First i thought it might be too warm during the nights but it was no problem at all. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. Also a big + for the hammoc on the balcony with ocean view! I will defenetly visit star bar again!

I stayed a week in Star Bar Bungalows and I had a great time here.The rooms are very nice and clean, have reasonable prices and the staff as well as the owners are very friendly. Staying here feels a bit like being at home. The breakfast is great (I think it is the only place on the island where you get home made bread!) and the location is perfect. The bungalows are on the quiet side of the island (away from the hassle of the strip around the harbour), nearly at the beach and you can have your breakfast in the bar/ restaurant directly at the beach. The restaurant offers a good variety of tasteful food and the atmosphere and drinks in the bar are great. So, when I come back to Gili Air I will definitely stay here again.
