fantastic hotel on the beach, amazing stay
Posted Dec 2, 2016
Very romantic getaway for my partner and I, we stayed 9 nights in a sunset bungalow and it exceeded our expectations. large pool, large bed, open roof outdoor bathroom and shower, great staff and large variety of good food at restaurants and room service. there is complimentary afternoon tea by the pool every day and the happy hour is a must too. there are beautiful views on the beach and bean bag chairs to relax on.
the location which is on the other side of the gili which suited us, we wanted to be away from the noise and crowds, and there were adequate restaurants walking distance from the hotel, but snorkelling and kayaking and other activities would require you to either horse and cart to the other side of the gili or rent a bike which you can do from the hotel. not super comfortable but it is fun riding around the island.
the only issue i had was the beach is a bit rocky with broken bits of coral so you definitely need to wear shoes. the water is very reedy and full of little starfish and sea creatures (which was fascinating) but we had to wear shoes to wade in the water. other than that we had a fantastic stay and would definitely recommend to other couples and families alike. Thank you ombak sunset! can't wait to see you again!
