We stayed at the Scallywags Trawangan for one night, after two at the sister resort in Gili Air. It's a delightful place to stay. The hotel is right behind the restaurant which, in turn, is right by the beach. It's an idyllic place to look out at the sea, relax and enjoy being in paradise. The giant chairs make getting up and moving away just that little bit harder!

The food is excellent - the seafood bbq is delicious.

The rooms are very nice - perhaps a little on the small side, but each has a little garden out front, and all are a few seconds from the pool.

As in the Gili Air resort, the staff were all super friendly and helpful and clearly enjoyed working there.

The only downside to this place is having to leave ... I would definitely go back given half the chance.

This place is great. It isn't too expensive, it's right across from the beach and the nightly BBQ is fantastic - the steak was as good as I get it home in Melbourne at one of my favourite restaurants.

Each room is clean and has a private courtyard and outdoor bathroom.

Although this is known as the "party" island, it's still good for families and couples. We had 6 nights here and were able to snorkel and swim during the day and spend our nights either inside with room service, at a [quieter] restaurant or somewhere loud with lots of atmosphere.

We loved the hotel and the island and look forward to returning when our baby is a bit older.

This was the first hotel of four my wife and I booked for our honeymoon. The Scallywags website printed a picture of exactly what we wanted on the island. And let me tell you this. What you see is what you get. Totally cool. It is in the higher price bracket for sure. But for those of you going to Gili T it is a place that we see only spending 3-4 days. If you are into the Scuba then add a few more.

The same people we emailed back and forth with prior to departure are the same ones we meet at check in. These people could not do enough for you. The rooms were awesome as teh pictures show. Do note that I believe Scallywags is only one of three hotels with fresh water shower and a fresh water pool.

Those big brown chairs that you see in the pictures. They are there and they are waiting for you. Try their apps sampler and the Sangria.

Food. I don't know why all the travel books and tour guides talk about other restaurants. In our opinion Scallywags had the best food. Just sitting in those big brown chairs and watch as they spend two to three hours prepping the beach for their BBQ was exciting. On our first night we toured the beach looking for a restaurant. We finally settled back at Scallywags.

What was really cool was that the hotel actually puts 5-6 individual tables right on the beach for that extra romance. When the restaurant manager saw our intrigue he grabbed a table and set ups up. With wine bucket and all. You can't beat service like that.

the Lonely Planet named Ko Ko Mo the number one restaurant on the island. It is a two minute walk from Scallywags. A little more formal perhaps but nothing in comparison on the quality of food and or service. We didn't try enough restaurants on the island to be sure Scallywags was the best. But if we were to go back again we would eat every meal there.

So overall... service amazing, vibe cool but really nice, accomodations excellence meats pazzaz, food likely the best on the island.

We live in Canada so likely we will never make it back again. But if we did this is the place we would go, eat, relax, and enjoy. Aside from that we will just cherish the memories.

Good travels everyone.

Take the Gili Cat high speed boat. Night and day difference to the other speed boat companies. Check out Lonely Planet. There have been some concerns...

Room Tip: I think all rooms are the same. Try the apps and the Sangria. There are free movies for guests. Wifi works well. Can't think of anything else. Just ask...

Our family of four booked three rooms at Scallywags for two nights this month. Overall impression of the resort is good nice beach restaurant out the front with the pool and rooms behind the reception. Rooms are nice and fresh and cleaned very well each day. We had lunch and dinner at the hotel both were reasonably priced and tasty. On the night that we had dinner we chose to have the beach BBQ, the fish was on ice but the chicken and other meat was not, this did concern me when the next day we saw them putting the meat out at 4.30 in the afternoon. The pool is really hot there is no shade other than from the beach umbrellas and Gili T is extremely hot, the management need to erected a couple of shade sails across the pool to try to cool it down. The power also goes out alot but the resort has there own genset so it isnt a problem, but keep this in mind if booking somewhere cheap on the island. We walked around half the island and took a cidomo the rest of the way Scallywags is one of the more upmarket places to stay. Gili T wasn't for me if we returned to the Gili Islands I would probably chose to stay on Gili T.

I stayed here with my wife on our honeymoon. Scallywags is situated near the heart of the town but it is far enough off the main road that you dont hear any of the party music that tends to run all night. The rooms are very very nice and in particular the bathrooms are open air and I thought they were great. The staff are friendly and the pool is also very nice. We also stayed at Luce Dalma and this place is alot nicer and in a better location. highly recommend staying at Scallywags
