“Fantastic stay at Ambary House”
Reviewed 22 May 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Me and 2 friends had a great stay here. Walking distance to all the Gili T main road nightlife and tucked away on a quiet side street so it was nice and private.

The villa itself is so nice - 2 big bedrooms, private bathrooms with pools of fish on both sides of the shower (yes you read that right - the bathroom is beautiful). Big open common area with a daybed, dining table, even a projector screen to watch movies. There's also a little reading lounge with comfortable pillows to hang out in. There's a hammock by the pool. Pool itself is beautiful and kept real clean.

Staff is excellent. They keep the place clean and serve nice omelettes in the morning. And they stay on call for you the entire time, getting you anything you need at any time. And they're super helpful with recommendations of things to do and acquiring tickets for boats, etc.

Would highly recommend for friends, couples, or families. Was easy to book through Hotels.com

“Blissful”
Reviewed 30 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Ambary House was the perfect spot for two couples looking to relax and enjoy the fun of Gili T. The staff are incredible and completely made our stay the best it could be. They had suggestions for places to go, things to do, helped us with laundry and renting bikes, took us on a day trip to Lombok to see waterfalls, helped us celebrate a birthday, and made delicious breakfast every morning. The accommodation is lovely, the private pool is amazing, the location is perfect. I highly recommend anyone to stay there!

“11/10 amazing villa!”
Reviewed 29 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed at Ambary house for 4 nights and had the most amazing time! The house is so beautiful, everything has been so thoughtfully planned out to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Our favourite things about the villa were the cute little reading area and the beautiful pool!
Although the house itself was stunning it was the staff that really made our stay so great, we would come back to Gili just for them! They were so kind and polite, made us delicious breakfast every morning and helped us in every way possible. We will miss them!!
Gde, the owner of the property was so lovely and made us feel extremely welcome. As we were a group of 5 girls we felt very safe and happy during our entire stay.
There is not one negative thing we could say about Ambary House, if you go to Gili Trawangan stay here!!!!!!

“Isolated luxury”
Reviewed 20 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Ambary House is an island of comfort, calmness, cleanliness, and friendly care. Once you walk out, you find yourself on dirty narrow village streets with chicken running around, relatively far from the sea and quite far from the nearest coral-free beach. Gili is packed with noisy beach bars and backpacker hotels, which is perfectly allright for the young night-partying tourist population. It seems that every native Gili family has allocated a part of its living area to house some tourists as well so all kinds of shabby-looking Orchid Villas and Seahorse Villas are at every corner, with invariable chicken around.
Ambary House is different. Two large bedrooms with glass walls, huge beds and romantic mosquito nets, mahogany bedside tables, bathrooms where small fountains constantly feed floor-level pools with silver and black fish leaving enough space for an open shower, a table with all sorts of gels and - ! - a WC with a most sophisticated rear rinsing mechanism mankind has ever invented. Now, in between the bedrooms Gde, the creative house owner and designer, has placed a vast open space sparsely filled with sofas, wide armchairs, a solid wood dinner table for six, a kitchenette, and a king-size movie screen with a projector and dozens of DVDs. Add to it air-condition and ventilators, a sizeable swimming pool, a gazebo with shelves full of books, nine Buddha statues smiling at you from every corner, and put this all inside a high-wall fortress - this is Ambary House.
And they really take care of you, from the moment the boys meet you by the boat and put your stuff on a horse cart, with every momentous breakfast they serve, with fresh fruits they bring every morning and fresh catch they are ready to cook for you at your whim. You name it, they do it.
Sure, it would be nice if the residence was right by the sea. But as much as my friends and I love snorkeling, we caught ourselves thinking: with all the luxury inside, why ever leave this isolated paradise?
