  • Our few days over on the island were very nice and relaxing. It was disappointing that they were pulling down all of the beach shacks/bars while we were there however I am sure once all of the work is...  more »
  • Despite the fact that throughout the island goes, this place can be called paradise. On around bars and cafes, right on the beach, music, lights and humming. The turquoise sea and white sand. And what are the sunsets! Tourists everywhere, local, we can say, except there are no attendants. The truth inside the Islands ruins and mud yet. Well, nothing a couple of years and will be no worse than the Maldives. There are nice shops, even a brand bathing things, exchangers, medical centre and it all works until late, in contrast to Lombok, even sell any alcohol and how all Asian resorts in the evenings put seafood in a café, you can personally choose for dinner. We came from Lombok, where were the 4 days, the difference of course colossal.

  • We were away on vacation and needed 2 days on Gili. Unfortunately, the whole of the seafront was destroyed/relegated 3 days prior our arrival-so the beach was filled with rubble and garbage, instead of nice restaurants and delicious Beach seats ... The whole idea of that the island should be pure paradise, was a little like an illusion due to an error. all construction and demolition work. The locals describe themselves to the entire Beach will be ready to visit again for maximum 3 months. It seems a little ambitious-but we hope to plan holder, so that there is no other that ends with keeping ' tropical island holiday ' in the middle of a construction site. On the plus side was that we stayed at a lovely hotel and spent days on that snorkel far away from the island:)
