Take a boat out to Gili Trawangan, an island of natural beauty and leisure activities. Named after a cave tunnel built here by the Japanese during World War II, the island has become a popular tourist spot, with accommodations, water-sports businesses, and restaurants ensuring a comfortable stay for international travelers. With no motorized vehicles allowed, rent a bicycle or ride around the small island in a cidomo (a horse-drawn carriage). With a reputation as a party island, the bars get busy after dark and dancing spreads out onto the beaches.

  • Never seen an island dirtier with precarious conditions of hygiene. Waste everywhere that occasionally burn by enacting an awful smell. Island frequented by junkies and alcoholics that every night you're all hopped up! The island lacks positive energy Stayed at Kuno Villas only decent thing of this island. New well maintained and cleaned with a lovely breakfast. The food on the whole island and terrible! Think twice before taking a break here! There is nothing better in the world with the best beaches and sea!

Where to stay in Senggigi

Senggigi offers several types of accommodations to suit different needs, from budget-friendly hotels in prime locations by the beach, to midrange central lodgings right next to entertainments and amenities. Places to stay lie spread out along the coastline, so book ahead of time in order to avoid hauling things back and forth in search of the perfect accommodations. Do note, however, that many restaurants offer free car rides to and from lodgings, and taxi rides are very inexpensive. Light sleepers: avoid basing yourself by the mosque, as the early morning prayer calls are very audible.
