My family and I booked 2 of their 2 bedroom villas for our holiday in Apr. The villas were spacious, with a huge living room (enough for the 8 of us to gather together) and each villa had their own pools. The pools were sectioned, with a shallow section for those who wanted to soak in the pool sipping wine could do so, or for kids to play there, and a deeper section for real swimmers.
Usually I have difficulty sleeping, especially on holidays, but the beds were so comfortable that I knocked out each night very easily. The aircon was very cool and perfect especially in the hot weather we experienced during the trip.
As we were new to the island, we asked the friendly staff for help to plan some activities during our stay, which Yadi and team happily assisted us with. We managed to go snorkeling around the Gili islands to see the perfectly blue waters and sea creatures. They also recommended us to take a cycle/walk around the islands to see the different views the island has to offer. It was a short 10 min walk to the sunset beach, even shorter if you cycle. We also met the friendly owner who lent us his game console to play at night (imagine street fighter and metal slug).
We also got recommendations on very nice food places - pituq waroeng (great vegan food served just a couple of steps from the villas, you won't even realise there isn't any meat in that meal!), Regina pizza, Honeyst (delicious affogatos), La Boulangerie (freshly baked crossiants), just to name a few. The best food was actually served by their own chef (I kid you not), even though it was simple dishes. Be sure to ask them what special seasonal offers they have off the menu! From recommendations from friends who recommended us to stay at the villas, we also requested for a Bbq night which the team set up for us on our first night, serving yummy barbecued fish, prawns, chicken as well as some soup and vegetables cooked by the restaurant.
11/10 would visit again!
