Accommodation on Gili Trawangan

For decades, travellers have made the hop from Bali and Lombok for a dip in the turquoise-tinted, bathtub-warm waters of the irresistible Gili Islands and stayed longer than anticipated. Perhaps it’s the amazing diving with reefs teeming with sharks, rays and reasonably friendly turtles? Or the snorkeling? Maybe it’s the serenity that comes with no motorised traffic? Or it could be the that Gili Trawangan has got accommodations for all level of budgets.

Gili Trawangan is in general very relaxed and laid-back, with countless little beachside cafes, restaurants and bars serving a variety of tastes in local and international cuisine. Best of all, there are no cars or motorbikes to disturb the peace.



“Could not wish for a better dive center”
We stayed at the hotel just behind the dive centre for ten nights. The rooms are cosy and well equipped. Air con and fresh water come as standard as does the flat screen TV and a hard drive full of movies. We did our Open Water with Gili Divers who offer a laid back and relaxing vibe. Excellent, thank you for such a nice time!


“I’m coming back for more!”
I ended up staying in Gili Divers Camp for 2 weeks. I meet a lot of cool people who I did my dive courses together with in the dive center (Gili Divers). I did my Open water and alos my Advanced Open Water course. After that I just enjoyed to go Fun Diving every day together with my new friends. Here you never have to feel lonely. Amazing atmosphere and very friendly! Thank you fro now and see you again!


“This place has it all!”
This place is super social – lots of people to hang out with, and it’s a GREAT place to meet people. People gather in the common areas in the evening before going out, and everybody hangs out at the pool during the day (if you’ve not met someone to go snorkling or diving with yet!). The staff is super friendly, there’s fresh water in the taps (you can drink it!), and breakfast is included!


“Can’t wait to go back!”
Love this hostel, very personal, friendly and social, but still with the ability to take a step back and be anonymous! Movie area, kitchen, free pancakes all day, activities all day, friendly staff, bunk beds that are private with curtains, clean, lots of space and different chill out areas. And very funny built! Very hippie, feels like an massive treehouse!
