“11/10 amazing villa!”
Reviewed March 29, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed at Ambary house for 4 nights and had the most amazing time! The house is so beautiful, everything has been so thoughtfully planned out to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Our favourite things about the villa were the cute little reading area and the beautiful pool!
Although the house itself was stunning it was the staff that really made our stay so great, we would come back to Gili just for them! They were so kind and polite, made us delicious breakfast every morning and helped us in every way possible. We will miss them!!
Gde, the owner of the property was so lovely and made us feel extremely welcome. As we were a group of 5 girls we felt very safe and happy during our entire stay.
There is not one negative thing we could say about Ambary House, if you go to Gili Trawangan stay here!!!!!!

“Isolated luxury”
Reviewed January 20, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Ambary House is an island of comfort, calmness, cleanliness, and friendly care. Once you walk out, you find yourself on dirty narrow village streets with chicken running around, relatively far from the sea and quite far from the nearest coral-free beach. Gili is packed with noisy beach bars and backpacker hotels, which is perfectly allright for the young night-partying tourist population. It seems that every native Gili family has allocated a part of its living area to house some tourists as well so all kinds of shabby-looking Orchid Villas and Seahorse Villas are at every corner, with invariable chicken around.
Ambary House is different. Two large bedrooms with glass walls, huge beds and romantic mosquito nets, mahogany bedside tables, bathrooms where small fountains constantly feed floor-level pools with silver and black fish leaving enough space for an open shower, a table with all sorts of gels and - ! - a WC with a most sophisticated rear rinsing mechanism mankind has ever invented. Now, in between the bedrooms Gde, the creative house owner and designer, has placed a vast open space sparsely filled with sofas, wide armchairs, a solid wood dinner table for six, a kitchenette, and a king-size movie screen with a projector and dozens of DVDs. Add to it air-condition and ventilators, a sizeable swimming pool, a gazebo with shelves full of books, nine Buddha statues smiling at you from every corner, and put this all inside a high-wall fortress - this is Ambary House.
And they really take care of you, from the moment the boys meet you by the boat and put your stuff on a horse cart, with every momentous breakfast they serve, with fresh fruits they bring every morning and fresh catch they are ready to cook for you at your whim. You name it, they do it.
Sure, it would be nice if the residence was right by the sea. But as much as my friends and I love snorkeling, we caught ourselves thinking: with all the luxury inside, why ever leave this isolated paradise?

We stayed at this villa for five nights and it was like an oasis from the busy waterfront area,was always great to come back to after wandering the streets or bike riding and have a swim in the nice clean pool.
Eko and the staff where fantastic and helped where ever they could and made a nice breakfast each morning..Thanks guys!
Would stay again for sure.
Only thing that I would change would be the paving stones in the bathroom as if you drop anything it gets wet in the water between them and you need to watch you don't roll an ankle on them..minor stuff and certainly wouldn't stop me from staying again.
Thanks again team!!

Stayed in this perfect villa for 4 nights, 3 Adults, 2 children. Lovely bedrooms, living space and great pool. Kids enjoyed the projector Tv and the hammock! Wifi was good and no issue with air con. Provided us daily with plenty of water. Gde and the staff were really helpful but not intrusive. Gde was visiting and he is a lovely and genuine person. The staff organised the hire of bikes, a snorkelling trip and laundry.
The villa is far enough away from the main strip and the noise. Loved riding the bikes around the island and stopping off for swims along the way in the ocean or resorts. Flat ride and had to walk bike in parts but that was no trouble. Loved the night market and the live music at Sama Sama. Will definitely return.

Will definitely be back.

strip and plenty of places to eat.

strip as well. Be wary of the horse carts they don't stop for anyone!

We, two couples, stayed during peak holiday season on Gili T so whilst we enjoyed the bustle of Main Street, it was lovely to return to such a beautiful space. Herman and staff were very efficient and friendly and we enjoyed our breakfasts after an early morning walk or swim. Herman assisted with transfers, organised a great home delivered seafood meal one evening and went out of his way to make our time in Gili T fuss free and memorable. We also enjoyed listening to the traditional music CDs provided and the extensive range of books and magazines in the lovely reading corner right next to the pool was a bonus. Top marks to Ambary House!
