3 paradise islands – which seem tiny compared to Lombok – are located only 45 minutes away by boat: Gili Trawangan, the main island, Gili Meno and Gili Air. The Gilis are very popular for scuba diving and snorkeling but also for relaxing, swimming and partying. Automobiles and motorised traffic is prohibited on the islands, so the preferred method of transportation is by foot and bicycle or the horse-drawn carriage called a cidomo.
You can easily access the Gili Islands either by a 30 minute car-ride up the scenic coastal road to the shuttle boats to the islands or rent a traditional boat in front of the hotel for an exciting 45 minute ride across the sea directly to the Gili Islands. On the way to the islands you can see beautiful panoramic views of the beach and the mountain ranges. A special picnic basket lunch for you can be prepared by our Chef to enjoy during your island retreat.
