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...

We stayed for 4 nights. The room was okay (room 12b) but pretty small. The rooms are cleaned every day and you get fresh towels every other day (or you can ask for fresh towels). Breakfast is pretty good. The beach and the ocean are very clean and clear. Pool is small and nobody uses it. We only give 3...

This was the 4th time I've visited Bale Sampan and it's always such a treat! The staff are friendly and attentive and it's nice to see so many of them still working here year on year.

I visited Gili with my brother at the beginning of the year and wasn't sure what to expect when we went to Gili for the final 3 nights of our holiday.

We stayed at this resort for 1 night. Location is good. Rooms and bathrooms were nice. Air Con in our room was the biggest problem. Did not cool nicely and leaked on my head during the night.
