You’ll be forgiven if you think that the photos are taken from a villa in the Greek Islands. With its well-decorated suites in blue and ivory and its captivating pool looking towards the sea, Villa Gili Bali Beach is an ideal place to stay if you’re looking for a luxurious escape on Gili Trawangan, Indonesia.

The largest among the the three main Gili Islands, Gili Trawangan is one of Indonesia’s top tourist destinations. Situated on the laid-back west coast of Gili Trawangan, Villa Gili Bali Beach is a quiet retreat that’s ideal for couples and a great place to appreciate the incredible sunsets of Gili Trawangan.

Villa Gili Bali Beach

Villa Gili Bali Beach offers two beach front bungalows, two private villa suits and a master suite, which occupies the whole second floor of the villa. It’s one of the few places where it’s possible to rent out the whole place (all five rooms), which is perfect for 10 to 13 people. In a popular place like Gili Trawangan, you’d definitely treasure that kind of exclusivity if you plan to travel with family or friends.  Each room in the villa has astonishing views of the sea or pool, equipped with modern amenities such as a flat screen TV, DVD player, air conditioning, a well-stocked bar and wifi connectivity. The villa also offers a spacious living area with a poolside bar and an open kitchen.

Our Private Beach Front Bungalow

Jon and I stayed in one of the beach front bungalows of Villa Gili Bali Beach during our time on Gili Trawangan for our honeymoon in Indonesia. The room’s décor was a beautiful mix of traditional local design with European flair. I particularly loved the high ceiling and the king size four poster bed. Charming decorations from carved wood to shell handicrafts were also placed in various areas of the room giving it a very intimate touch.

A beautifully carved wooden door led to our indoor / outdoor shower, a serene space to have that chance to feel at one with nature.

The Awesome Infinity Pool

The central pool would have to be our favourite part our stay in Villa Gili Bali, where we spend our late afternoons relaxing as we waited for the colours of sky to change during sunset. The variety of seating options around the pool area included sunbeds and gazebos. We could have stayed in the villa for weeks!

Gili Trawangan Sunset at the Beachfront Bar/ Restaurant

Just a few steps outside of the villa is the beachfront restaurant and bar. The comfortable lounge chairs make for a perfect spot for watching the colourful sunsets of Gili Trawangan.

Getting Around Gili Trawangan

As with the other major Gili Islands, there are no cars on Gili Trawangan. The main forms of transport are either by horse carriage, bicycle or on foot. Villa Gili Bali Beach provided rental bikes (which we got for free during our stay), which made it convenient for us to explore the the island, including its “village” interior.

While most people think of Gili Trawangan as a “party island”, it has recently evolved to cater to a variety of crowds from couples to families. Villa Gili Bali Beach is located in the northwest coast the island, known to be a more laid back spot for those who want to experience Gili Trawangan but also step back into its more relaxed roots.
