What people are saying about Gili Developments
One of the best hotels on the island, so glad we chose it.
Such a great breakfast with lots of choice. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The hotel is furthest away from the main restaurants etc but that’s what makes it nice and quiet. That being said it’s only a lovely scenic 20 min walk to the other end of the island.
We had bad weather whilst in Gili so it was wonderful to have a great bar and restaurant on site. We had an amazing band and fire show one of the nights too.
The rooms were cleaned every day. The only thing I would say about the rooms is they are a bit dark and need better lighting. If it’s raining you do get a bit wet sat on the toilet. Probably not normally a problem unless your in rainy season like us.
Recently stayed for 5 nights at the Grand sunset Gili Air . The hotel was lovely and clean .
Fantastic location on the the very beautiful And quiet sunset side of the island . The facilities were great . Lovely pool and wonderful food . I highly recommend the seafood chowder . The staff were plentiful and amazing . Extremely happy and very eager to please . Really could not fault the resort in any way . Thank you to all the staff at the resort including Yudi and Diran at reception . The grand sunset will not disappoint .
Stayed January 2017, travelled with friends
I enjoyed my stay at the grand sunset . The room was clean with air conditioning & a nice private outdoor shower area .
The restaurant had a great menu & good food . The front desk staff were helpful & helped me with anything that I needed to book & answered my questions .
To get around the island hire a push bike with fat tyres as a lot of the tracks are sandy – the thin tyres are hard work
The snorkeling half day tour around the islands is fun . Enjoy the sunsets & get up early to watch the subside on the other side of the island .
Yoga by the water is lovely & yoga at H20 if you like yoga . If you like really healthy fresh foods other places that are must try are Pachamama & Gili Bliss .
All staff encountered were very friendly. The room was clean and the outdoor bathroom and shower was neat. We enjoyed the pool and the restaurant each day. The location was excellent as it was perfect for sunsets and a short walk to the busier part of the island. We would stay there again.
Stayed November 2016, travelled as a couple
The whole journey starting from Bali moving to Lombok, then to Gili Trawangan and finishing the trip at your lovely hotel in Gili Air was all great and marvellous ! One more thing I would like to add is your friendly receptionists. The guys showed kindness and very high level of respect that pleased and amused me, and I also would love to mention one in specific, his name was (Riadus) I think if I still remember, this guy had helped me a lot during my stay so as others did, showed me restaurants I needed that night suggested good food possibly I liked then sent me to the right place.
I am delighted and satisfied to finish my holiday in such place with such people.
Thank you for your assistance!
We were impressed before we even got to Grand Sunset as we were offered their shuttle service which we used. We were picked up from Ubud in a private car, then were recommended the safest and fastest boat to the island which was great. Upon arrival we were given fresh juice and shown to our room. The room was lovely, clean and spacious, with a TV, fridge and a safe. We loved the outdoor bathroom as had never experienced this before. Housekeeping were great, they came every day and cleaned the bathroom and serviced our room.
The pool area is stunning & clean, you won’t want to leave the hotel! Variety of sun loungers and beds, either around the pool or on to the beach. Breakfast was included and was lovely, we either had the western or the local and both were great.
This was all made better by the wonderful team at Grand Sunset & Scratch. They honestly couldn’t do enough for us during our stay. (Big thanks to Rizan, Funky, Smiley, Adi, iwan & Bahri – there are a couple of names we can’t remember but honestly all were fabulous). Also the band and fire display is a brilliant night!
We can’t recommend this hotel enough, we initially booked 6 nights and extended to 9. Throughout this time there wasn’t another hotel we walked past that we would have chosen over Grand Sunset.
This hotel was perfect for what we were after. We stayed with our 2 teenage sons for 6 nights and we all loved every minute of it. The rooms were big enough, the beds comfy, the staff very friendly, the food perfect and the pool area was fantastic. We loved the outdoor bathroom as it was so roomy and peaceful and solved the whole ventilation problem – although note you are right next to your neighbours’ bathrooms so a bit like a public restroom as far as noise goes. Apart from the staff being friendly, we found other guests were friendly as well – I thought this spoke volumes about how relaxing the hotel was – it is something I have rarely experienced in other hotels. The band and fire shows were excellent. We ate many meals at Scratch and found the food to be excellent. Will definitely be back soon.
