Le Petit and Rustic Gili …

When my friend and I visited Gili Trawangan (Gili T) again at the end of May 2013, we decided not to squander our money on accommodation. So I looked around some website, and my eyes hooked with the photos of Le Petit Gili. When I saw that there’s only 1 room left, and it only has 3 rooms, I booked the room instantly.

It’s not hard to find Le Petit Gili. It’s really beside the night market. I didn’t think I saw this during my last visit to Lombok last year. The staff said that Le Petit Gili is actually quite new. Only a couple of month old. Currently they only have 3 rooms, but soon, they will expand and have some budget rooms.

Le Petit Gili as the name said, is actually only occupied a small area. Well, yes, they don’t have pool in the hotel, but there’s a giant pool surrounding Gili T πŸ˜‰ The rooms are located above the lovely restaurant, and we walked upstairs through small stairs.

When I opened the door, I was ‘whoaa!’ The room looks great, and lovely, and rustic (is that the correct term? πŸ˜‰ )! Really love it! Love how they designed and made the furniture.

What’s surprising was the bathroom. Well not the room, but the door. There’s no door, only curtain haha.Β 

The bathroom is so simple, but it’s nice πŸ™‚ Everything is there, except toothpaste and shampoo (for the soap, there were only two soap bars), at least there are sufficient towels for us πŸ˜€

Every timeΒ I looked around, I found something interesting. Just like the towel hangers. That’s really unique! I never thought there’s towel hangers look like that πŸ˜‰ Then theΒ window. I like how they use old windows. Not just one, but they use quite a few of old windows for the room.

They also provided Flat-screen TV and DVD player inside the room. To be my surprised, I never turned it on haha. But I think the most important thing is the wi-fi haha. Yes, we could access the internet through the wi-fi and luckily from inside the room too. Just registered yourself downstairs at the cafe to get the login and password.

Next thing that I like from the room is that the room is facing the beach. So sometimes you just opened the door to the balcony to let the wind comes to the room (even with A/C in the room, we sometimes just want to let fresh air came inside). Then from the balcony, you can see not only the beach, but also the night market, from preparation of the market till the end.Β

The location could become a problem to someone who doesn’t easily sleep like us. Haha. You can hear the noise from the nearby party, or even the people chatting from the night market. But … I see the location of Le Petit Gili as very nice, as it’s in the ‘middle’ of the road. It’s not too far to go the left-side of the island (sunset point or even to Queen Villa), or to the right-side of the island (Coral beach bar). And even we can rent a bike for free from the hotel πŸ˜‰

Now how about the food? Well, food is something that you can get everywhere in Gili T. Even if you’re quite lazy to stroll around to the nearby restaurant; the cafe below the room also provides food. The space is quite small. When I asked about the favourite food in this restaurant, the staff said: BURGER!! Haha … Sure! And I ordered double cheese burger, which is bigger than my mouth! Two big chunk of burger meat under the bread. Haha … Don’t forget to get your free breakfast every morning from this restaurant. There are 3 choices of breakfast menu, and my friend always said ‘Choose the most expensive one!!’ and sure I did! Haha …Β

Will I stay here again in the future? Of course! It’s a lovely place to stay that’s why I share it to you πŸ™‚

For booking, you can go to the website πŸ™‚ (PS: there’s only one room that is facing the beach).

    Nice post!
    May I know how much was it for the room and that double cheese burger? πŸ™‚

    • Timothy W Pawiro

      Hey, the room was IDR390,000/night, and If I’m not mistaken, the burger prize is around IDR50,000 or perhaps less than that πŸ˜‰
