Omah Gili - Gili Air (Lebaran'12)

This is the establishment that I had mentioned before. Omah Gili is owned by FW's high school friend and it only made sense to visit his place during our holiday trip. Not a 5 star luxury place to pamper yourself but certainly a decent, reasonably clean place, but most importantly very friendly service and a sense of blending into the local Gili Air community. This small establishment is relatively new, located around 200m behind Manta Dive so it's a good alternative for Manta Dive accommodation even if no sea view available. Omah Gili has 8 cottages, two types of room offered: 4 units of Joglo (Geladak) and 4 units of Lumbung.

Our room was clean and air conditioner worked well. We liked much the outdoor bathroom. They provide a 5-galon bottle drinking water in each room. No problem at all for water supply - not fresh water though - and electricity was fine. Note: no TV provided. By the way, you would regret your visit in Gili Air if you spend time watching TV because the island is just too beautiful. The staff are all friendly, particularly the front desk officer.

The breakfast okay, and although it wasn't located on beach-side, it was not far from the beach. It was a perfect location for a holiday hideout-- nice and quiet, not too close to the crowd. It feels just like home, but with extra services, cleaner air, and other island treats. No lunch and dinner offered so you have to find meals for yourself but no worry, there are many beach front restaurants with reasonable prices ready to serve you in Gili Air. I recommend Biba Beach Cafe & Chill-Out, great tasty food, unforgettable view towards the sea and Lombok island, nice service with good price.
