From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home. All the staff were fantastic, happy, lovely people. Everything about this place was lush, relaxing and ideal. To top it off the snorkeling out the front is easily up there with the best spots on the whole island. We highly recommend this place.
We decided to visit Gili Air without booking anything. We had a few places in mind and went to check them. We randomly checked Biba Beach and decided to stay as it was better than all the other ones we saw. The staff has been welcoming. They offered us a deal that we wouldn't have had online. The room was available so they checked us in as we arrived (morning). Special thanks to the manager Mira who provided help in a last minute situation.
We weren’t staying but came in for dinner as the beachfront restaurant has lovely lanterns hanging from the trees and a nice atmosphere. The margherita pizza was hands down the best we’ve had in Indonesia - I seriously recommend it. My partner’s garlic bread starter was good too! I had chicken spring rolls to start. Unfortunately when they first came out they were still cold/raw in the middle; however, upon my returning them they were hugely apologetic and came back with a complete fresh (cooked!) portion. So they fixed the mistake properly and were very polite. Service was slightly slow but the view and seating was fantastic so sitting for a while longer wasn’t an issue. Lots of sweet cats around too!
This place is just lovely, the rooms are gorgeous, the staff are super lovely and really want you to have a great time and be comfortable, and the setting/location is great. I notice some reviews say the air con in the rooms wasn't great but ours was perfect, the room was a dream to walk into and I had some of my best nights sleeps here - but with regards to the not so good air con reviews please bare in mind that Gili Air is still recovering from the after effects of the earthquake last August and so if the air con wasn’t great you have to cut them some slack. Breakfast (included in the room price) was great, we had nasi goreng (Indonesian rice dish) and fresh fruit each morning which kept us full for hours. Highly recommend staying here
Biba Beach Village is an amazing place, with an amazing staff that goes the extra line for customers (shout-out to Mira we love you). The room is perfect and comfortable, the open-aired bathroom is fully functional. All this for 21€ a night (in low season though) it was just perfect. Oh and the view and the beach are also perfect.
