Lovely restaurant - really great breakfast. Right on the beach. Easy to organise snorkelling trips etc from the hotel for really good prices. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms nice, great AC. Really liked this place because they focus on being a green hotel, and actively try and reduce their effect on the environment.

Good beds + pillows + towels. Few mosquitoes but the reception had already prepared sprays to be used. Used it once and never had mosquitoes at all for 2... More

Great hotel to stay in when you visit Gili T. Nice little pool, excellent breakfast! Nice people, good bike rent, etc Close to the beach and to the boats. Just outside of the party area, which makes it pretty quiet when you want to sleep, but close enough to walk to all the excitement.

My friend and I travelled to Gili T for a weeks holiday! The hotel arranged for transfers from Lombok Airport that included both road and sea transport! The bungalows are large, clean and well air-conditioned. The bathrooms located outside were great! Would visit again

Our family (with teenagers) had a fantastic stay at Bale Sampan. We found the staff and management to be extremely helpful and the food was absolutely awesome. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the grounds are well kept and everything is run efficiently - particularly given its island location. We would highly recommend it to families and other travellers who... More
