Travellers' Choice
Often referred to by guests as "home away from home," we offer a laid-back community vibe in an idyllic setting-friendly island-style service, casual-gourmet cuisine, and a high standard of accommodation. Anchored on the quieter west coast of Gili Air, Mowie's Gili Air enjoys the best sunset salute of anywhere on the island. Each evening, happy travelers and local regulars join us to relax, connect, and pay tribute to our beautiful island. And, if surfing is your passion, you'll find a nice uncrowded break directly facing our beach! Our ever-popular restaurant, features healthy, European-style fare, all-day menu features fresh, locally sorced ingredients and a wondrous combination of flavors. We have eight elegant and stylish bungalows, each with private ocean-facing veranda and natural finishes-which are full nearly every night, we might add! Advance booking advised. Our spacious, ocean-facing bungalows were designed to evoke the feel of rustic luxury in a tranquil and casual setting. All rooms feature top-quality bed comfort, custom en suite bathroom, private veranda, and flow-through ventilation. We offer four categories of rooms, each varying in price and design-all just steps away from a turquoise sea.

After reading lots of reviews about accommodation on Gili Air we decided to book Mowies Bungalows (superior beach front) and wasn't disappointed. A fantastic location with one of the best beaches fronts on the island, the room was spacious with aircon, fridge and TV. The staff are very friendly and are more than happy to assist with any queries you have. A massive thank you to everyone at Mowies Bungalows and Bar for making our stay so special, hopefully we'll be back soon 🐠💕

Had a great time staying here. To get here, you can walk for about 10 minutes from the harbour if you don't want to take the horse carriage. We had the family room; the room was clean and tidy. The staffs were all friendly from the moment we reached till we checked out. Can't find much fault except that we had our room near "Live" music bar next door. Other than that, it was a good stay. The best part of this stay was that this was the best spot to catch the sun set!

Room Tip: Try to get a room further in to get away from the music at night.

We stayed here in the Family villa (now called Deluxe Studio) for four nights in September. It’s a nice hotel, the restaurant has some great options, and the rooms have some nice trendy touches. That being said, it’s better suited to adults, I wouldn’t stay here again with young kids for the following reasons: - The deluxe studio, although nice to look at, is really impractical. There are gaps in all the doors that let mosquitoes in (a net is only provided for the loft bed, not the futons downstairs). The shower runs boiling hot to freezing cold every 20 seconds or so, meaning that you spend the entire time jumping out to fiddle with the knobs. Small things, but we just constantly found ourselves hassling around making sure the bathroom door was closed etc. The king bed is up on a loft, with kids “beds” (more like futons) are downstairs. The stairs are loud, so once we put the kids down we were effectively stuck upstairs as we didn’t want to wake them. - Although advertised as being on the quieter side of the island, it is right near a couple of the big party bars (Lucky’s and Cheeky Monkey). We were unlucky enough to stay during a dark moon party and had to endure the bass through until about 4am. This only happened once during our stay, but they have parties like that regularly according to their flyers up around the island. I’d suggest getting a place in the centre of the island if loud music was a concern to you. - The pool is very bare bones, only has space for four lounge chairs (which were regularly in use during our stay). The hotel is next to the beach, but it is really unswimmable in front of the hotel so we were counting on the pool. - The breakfast was really good, as was the general menu at the restaurant. It’s not particularly kid friendly though, we often struggled to get our kids to eat much As I said before, it’s a nice hotel with a great restaurant and I don’t really have any complaints. However, the deluxe studio, which is pretty expensive, is not a good choice for families with young kids. Perhaps the hotel has realised this as they’ve changed the name now to deluxe studio (and there are different family rooms now).

Great location, helpful staff, offered beach towels Free of charge. Very clean romantic hut. I’d opp into the more modern huts. Amazing breakfast also over looking the ocean. Would recommend. They also have a swimming pool.
