11 days in Indonesia- GILI ISLAND, LOMBOK ( part 2 )

29 August 2016

If you follow my social media platforms long enough, you will realize that i rarely go for a beach vacation. Most of my travel destinations are just cities and mostly are during winter time. This July, i finally have a beach vacation with #TripofWonders Indonesia. Of course, it is even better when i have my travel companion Bobo and Nana with me for this trip.

We went to Lombok after Makassar. Read more about Makassar - HERE

Gili Island is just 20-30 mins away, we took the speed boat to Gili Island from Lombok. Well, The Gili Islands are primarily known for 3 things: party, diving and snorkeling. But ACTUALLY, there are much more things you can do. Island hoping, taking picture and chilling by the beach is my favourite things to do. 
During the day, You can also go for Snorkeling trip (100,000 Rp ). Snorkeling trips in a glass bottom boat last from 10am – 3.30pm. They take you to three different snorkeling locations around Gili Meno and Gili Air; and then you stop at the other island for lunch.

I never really had a holiday like this before. Just sit there and watch the world go by.

We went to GILI AIR 
Most bars and restaurants offer sun protected loungers or giant cushions on the beach where you can simply enjoy a delicious, cool Bintang or a fresh fruit juice and of course eat something while marveling at the wonderful view. What can i ask for more? 

 Back to GILI TAWANGAN ISLAND after snorkelling. 

We stayed on Gili Trawangan. There are no vehicles on the Gili islands so transport is by foot, bicycle or horse. Renting a bicycle is around 50,000 rp if i’m not mistaken. You can easily find bike rent anywhere in the island. It takes approximately one hour to cycle around it and two hours to walk.

Catching the Gili Sunset is a MUST for this entire trip! Gili has the most famous sunset with the signature swing right there. I’m sure this looks familiar to most of you right. 
Yay! That’s the Ombak Sunset

The islands are very relaxed and laid-back, with countless little beachside cafes still playing reggae and no cars or motorbikes to disturb the peace. 

Don’t forget to GET A MASSAGE

Yes, Get a massage! Pamper yourself! If you enjoy massage services, Gili is the place to do just that. You can get cheap massages everywhere on the island from 100,000


The Villa Ombak bring the theme of traditional resort built by local heritage as well as Ombak Sunset is touched by modern and sophisticated culture. It is situated on the popular western side of the Gili Island, Gili Trawangan, Hotel Vila Ombak is the perfect island escape with tropical gardens and carefully designed rooms that complement the surrounding Indonesian islands and landscapes. 
At Hotel Vila Ombak youll find 8 styles of accommodation each designed to complement the unique surroundings of the various Indonesian islands and specially appointed to match your holiday needs and budget. 

We stayed in the Delux Ombak Room

The breakfast is good, especially the view! I don’t mind doing this every morning
