There was some building going on in the alley way to our Bungalow but it didn't effect anything. the staff were great and heaps friendly :) wifi didn't work in our room though :( overall...

I stayed here for 5 nights. The room was basic, but completely met my needs. The only complaint I could have is the construction in front, you have to walk down a narrow path to get to the rooms. However, it wasn't that inconvenient and never had a problem with noise. Internet was only in the pool/restaurant area and not...

Having spoke to all our staff, it seems you did not discuss any of your concerns with them during your stay. In particular your concern regarding bed bugs as this is something we could have investigated at the time. We have since had your room and other rooms at Pesona Resort checked by the pest control company and they did...

Stayed at Pesona for 4 nights & had a great stay. We were in a little bungalow that was actually quite comfortable & after staying in a couple of big resorts on Bali & Java it was nice to stay somewhere a little more rustic. Our room was nothing fancy, a comfy enough bed, ceiling fan & functional bathroom with...

Stayed for 2 nights in Pesona, took the Deluxe Bungalow. It was OK... quite spacious, clean, no-frill type of room, and although it was located at the front of the hotel, surprisingly the noise from construction is not audible. However, sounds from the street next to the bathroom can be heard. Didn't try the restaurant, but breakfast is very limited,...

We stayed here for three nights and really, really enjoyed our time here. The original room that we had booked into wasn't suitable for our needs, and we were rehoused in another room with minimal fuss and maximum courteous efficiency. Reading through previous reviews, I'm not sure why people would refer to this space as "backpacker" style accommodation: the rooms...

This hotel is for backbackers, now there is nothing wrong with that as they are needed,but no need to charge a 3 star price!

Thank you for your review and I am sorry to hear all your concerns about Pesona Resort.

Myself and my partner stayed here for a few nights in April. We booked pesona as it was in the same price range as the hotels we had been staying in Bali. We were a little disappointed with it to be honest. It's certainly not a 'resort', more like a backpackers hotel and believe the excellent reviews for Pesona are...

Thank you for taking the time to review Pesona Resort. I'm glad you liked the snorkeling, we have one of the best snorkel spots on the island right in front of our resort.

I did not stay at Pesona but ate at the restaurant 3 times and enjoyed many hours lazing by the beach in their chill-out area. The food was the best I had on the Island, and beats every Indian restaurant in Sydney that I've been to. You can't like curry, and not come here if you're on Gili T!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pesona Resort is located on the idyllic island of Gili Trawangan, just off the northwest coast of Lombok. Situated just a short walk south of the jetty on Gili Trawangan, Pesona Resort is an ideal place to spend your time here. We recently opened a 5* Dive center called Dive Central Gili which is PADI certified and a Spa to pamper yourself with all sorts of treatments. The pool overlooks the white sandy private beach and the turquoise ocean, with Gunung Rinjani as its backdrop. We have 6 types of accommodation available to our guests (2 Bed Villa Suite, Villa Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, Sea-View Rooms, Deluxe Bungalows & Standard AC Rooms. All of our rooms are considerately furnished with quality in mind and have en-suite western standard bathrooms. If you want to experience something different from the local nasi dishes or the western fusion menus, why not come for some authentic INDIAN FOOD? Our specialist chefs lovingly prepare the food using the best imported ingredients and we have a comprehensive menu of authentic Indian cuisine to delight your taste buds as well as a new Lunch Menu serving up western food. The Sheesha lounge on the beach is a perfect way to end of the evenings. Book transfers from Bali or Lombok through easygilitransfers to get here! ... more   less
