Love our stay at this sprawling villa
Every detail is covered for the most comfortable stay possible on a beach resort
It is needless to say, very tastefully furnished and clean
The manager and staff are so accommodating and ready to please at all times
He even goes out to buy our local breakfast and meals to satisfy our craving
The villa is located on a quiet beach and yet within easy walking distance to the shops, restaurants and bars
Everyone is happy and smiling
We are so happy with our stay here that we highly recommend to any guest looking for the perfect beach holiday
We were a group of 4 ladies who were recommended to take a vacation away from the usual bustling hotspots of Bali, Koh Samui, Phuket etc to stay at Gili Trawagan/Lombok. An idyllic island that lies between Lombok and Bali. Silkair flies twice a week to Lombok which is perfect for a mid week to weekend retreat. We booked into Villa Hari Puri/Gili Trawagan which, is conveniently located on a quiet and private stretch of beach and yet walking distance to the restaurants/pubs and spas.
On arrival at the airport after a 2.5 hours flight from Singapore, the Villa Hari Puri owners arranged an air-conditioned vehicle to the Pier. The 2 hour scenic drive was breathtaking and at the Pier we were on board the private speed boat to Gili Trawagan in 15 minutes! Gili Trawagan is a perfect gateaway that offers fabulous local and international cuisine & seafood. We particularly enjoyed the local fare of Indonesian oxtail soup, barbecued fish and all food local! Tuk-Tuks (island transport) are easily available and we took a tour of the island, which is an easy coastal ride of coconut trees lining the beach and spectacular views of the Bali sea.
We were a group of 4 who stayed at the main Villa at Villa Hari Puri with 4 bedrooms, and they also had 3 guest houses on the compound to accommodate more guests. The Villa Hari Puri overlooks the sea, and the private beach is only a stone's throw away from the Villa. Each bedroom had an ensuite outdoor bath in luxurious settings and amenities all sufficiently provided. The best living area I liked at the Villa Hari Puri is the patio which was an eclectic mix of Balinese & Colonial charm overlooking the sea, away from the food and drinks establishments, but yet within easy walking distance from the Villa. The Villa Manager, Nans was attentive to all our needs, and cravings. We even had an in-house massage arranged at the Sala (outdoor bed). The beach is clean and water is clear, beach deck chairs are provided. The owners, Eira and Simon Day are hospitable hosts and are easily contactable for the Villa bookings and all inbound and outbound arrangements. Nothing less than 6 star accommodation at a great price!
Had the privilege to stay several times at this beautiful villa. Build inspired by the Lombok traditional architecture but furnished with all modern luxury. Very nice staff that did everything to make our stay a hoary one. Location couldn't be better, right on the beach and only a short walk away from restaurants, bars and the perfect sunset view spot!!
We stayed here in October and had a lovely relaxing time. The villa is set back from the little road that goes round the island so is very private and quiet. The bar that used to host the full moon parties has been shut down and is far enough out of the busy area to make you feel like you are away from it all but at the same time it is just a short walking distance to some great restaurants. The villa is filled with lovely old Indonesian furniture and has a huge long terrace which we enjoyed relaxing on. And in the morning after breakfast it is just a short stroll through the garden to your own private beach intront of the villa . The manager was very helpful with providing information and arranged bikes for us when we asked. Would definately go back!
The property is really beautiful and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We were a group of 13 and we had booked the entire villa including the 3 guesthouses. Overall, the main villa is alright but needs some refurbishment as the furniture is old and the sink as well as the shower drain in the bathroom are clogged in all of the rooms. The 3 guesthouses are worst. There is barely any light in the rooms and it is pitch dark at night. The bathrooms are open air and you can see anyone in the bathroom of the neighbouring guesthouse. These guesthouses really need major renovation. I would recommend to stay at the main villa only.
