Room was great, cleaned everyday. Hotel staff was extremely friendly, including the sales manager(?) Becky. Exchanged lots of email enquiries and she replied them without fail and help me arranged for my transfer to and fro Lombok and Bali. Thanks! The room is extremely big that i can lay all my belongings around. Room was cleaned everyday and the towels are changed everyday too. Nice swing that comes with the room on the group floor. However the Wifi (same to the whole island, was extremely slow.. i suggest getting your own data) and the air-con wasn't cold enough for me even thou i set it to 16 degrees. The hotel was located near the jetty and thats where all the night life are, however for me the room doors when closed is enough to shut off the loud surrounding sounds.

The Azure massage and spa and Dive Central Gili is also located here.

Thank you, Tan, for this very kind review. The staff at Pesona Beach Resort & Spa are here to help and it's important to us that your inquiries are answered quickly. Our team has connections with Bali fast boats and cars and speedboats in Lombok to get you to and from Gili Trawangan in the safest, most efficient way.
It's very nice to hear that you enjoyed staying in the new Poolside rooms. I'm working on putting fans in the rooms to help combat the cooling issue. The wifi can be a bit tricky at times, but I've recently purchased a few mobile data devices to help out our customers who need a bit extra to get online needs met.
Please come back and visit us and Dive Central Gili again. You never know, after your good luck seeing that Manta Ray maybe you'll be one of the lucky few to see a Whale Shark in the Gilis or if you go a bit deeper, a shy Thresher.

Kind regards,
Jen

We stayed there over the weekend, the place was quite central and close to the harbor. Good food and good atmosphere, you can relax in the afternoon enjoy some coconut water and enjoy shisha at night overlooking the beach. Shout out to their vegetarian kati and carrot cake.
Room was really clean and the shower was amazing. A big fan of the refillable water bottles in the room. The spa used high-quality oils and the staffs were really friendly. They were also hosting a beach clean up when we're there. Hands down to Pesona for looking out for the environment and making sure we had a pleasant stay.

Dear Amalia,
Thank you for this lovely review. It's so nice when our guests notice the details we've put in place, and you have mentioned a few of my favorite things as well! We are always looking for more ways to be eco-conscious and welcome any ideas from our guests. Recently we have even followed the trend of giving a free coffee out to people who collect a bucket of rubbish on the beach and I'm proud to say that it's a very successful campaign. Please come visit us again to enjoy more poolside coconuts and check out the other cool projects the eco-warriors on the island are up to.

Kind regards,
Jen

I spent a few lovely days with my boyfriend at Pesona. We are both huge Indian food lovers and we were not disappointed with Pesona's Indian restaurant.

Our room was by the long pool, charming, clean and with everything we needed. Surprisingly for such a central location, the room was quiet at night.

I personally always look at sustainable practices when I choose a place. Pesona offers free water refills. They provide a refillable glass bottle in each room. They take part in the weekly beach clean ups on the island and encourage guests to take action by offering a coffee for a bucket of collected trash!

Finally, breakfast was delicious. Especially their homemade jam! A must try!

Thank you, Oria for this very kind review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the cuisine here at Pesona Beach Resort. Our vibrant Indian food has been well known for some time, but we are working on building a reputation for our fresh international cuisine. We decided to make jam in an effort to stop buying single-use plastic containers of jam and butter each morning and turns out we like this homemade version with Pineapple, Papaya, and Ginger better too! Please come back and visit us again on your next Gili Trawangan getaway.

Kind regards,
Jen

Near the harbour and the night market of Gili T this is the place to be! The new rooms are comfortable and beautiful, very nicely decorated with a terrace next to the pool (which is suitable for kids). The restaurant and dive-shop have great views on the beach, This is the superb spot to catch the sunrise in the morning with breath taking views on the Rinjani mountain of Lombok. On the beachside of Pesona we relaxed and had drinks in the evening enjoying the cool sea breeze. The restaurant offers the best yummy Indian food. We really hope to be back and enjoy more of the tropical Pesona Gili T dream!!!

Room Tip: The new poolside rooms are great

Thank you, VillaSinarCinta for this lovely review! We are so pleased that you enjoyed our newly opened Poolside rooms. It's been a labor of love and I'm still looking for the perfect touches to make every guest feel at home. Please do visit us again, and if you enjoyed the sunrise, be sure to ride around to the west side next time and catch the amazing Gili sunsets that look out to Bali and it's majestic volcanos.

Kind regards,
Jen

Wow,this place was a total surprise ! Stayed here for business and was totally surprised by this FUNKY hotel. Great rooms immaculately clean with everything you need.Slept like a baby, fantastic food especially the Indian selection,amazing. I could only go snorkeling as i had a chest cold but everyone raved about the dive center and there was sensational bio rocks right out the front of the hotel.
Great staff and management and i cannot recommend this place highly enough.Plus its right in the center of everything!

Room Tip: New rooms by the pool are great ! ( south side )

Dear sunstone,
Thank you so much for this glowing review! There are a lot of places to stay in Gili T these days and we are pleased you chose to stay with us. It is our goal that Pesona has an individual character that is unlike anywhere else on the island- a little bit chilled and at the same time easy to reach the action the island is famous for. We are committed to providing a quality experience whether it be the mattress on your bed or the food you order for your next meal. I hope you find some time to visit us again and go on a few dives with the lovely people at Dive Central Gili. The underwater experience is as much a part of Gili as the vibrant nightlife and not to be missed!

Kind regards,
Jen
