Interaction with guests

We (Matt and Jen) take great care to provide you with online assistance from your initial inquiry to the day you check out. We understand your holiday time is precious, so we do all we can to make sure your trip planning goes smoothly, from helping you arrange your transportation to the Gilis to providing personalised travel advice on how best to explore the Indonesian Archipelago.

Although we usually won't be on site, we are in constant communication with our friendly English-speaking staff who live on the grounds. They can help you arrange day trips, volcano treks, snorkelling trips or bicycle rental. Whatever your holiday needs might be, just ask our super Kupu Kupu staff - and they will help you make the most out of your Gili Trawangan experience.

Other things to note

At Kupu Kupu we have made a conscious effort to make the cottages as ECO friendly and sustainable as possible in order to reduce our impact on the island's fragile eco system. The cottages themselves have been "up-cycled," renovated from already existing structures, and using recycled building materials wherever possible. We put a large emphasis on not only our our garden, but in our neighbor's gardens and streets as well.

Water is precious on the island, so we try to collect rain water and use recycled water in the garden while our shower water uses a desalination system. The drinking water gallons we provide in the rooms, are not only convenient and economical for you, but by refilling your water bottle, you get a chance to help reduce plastic waste on the island. Woohoo!

Lovely place, fantastic staff. As a solo female traveler, I felt safe and taken care of. The one staff, San, even took a few of us guests to the night market to eat together one night and walked me down to the snorkeling tour to get the best price. Loved all the people that worked here! And breakfast was fantastic, good coffee and a few options. Banana pancakes were best I had. Location was good, a few streets away from the craziness of Gili T but close enough to walk everywhere. Very nice room and bathroom, good AC and clean, and I liked hanging out on my porch in the garden. Stay here if you're staying on Gili T! One thing I will caution people about is the boat tickets they sell. They cost about 200k more than you would pay elsewhere. I knew this and chose to do it to save myself hassle, but just a head's up. Also the boat ride back with their company of choice, Mahi Mahi Dewata, was awful and took 3 hours (it was supposed to take 1.5) and the "free" transfer after was bad. But to be honest, it sounded like ALL the fast boat companies suck and people on other boats had similar experiences.

Kupu Kupu Cottages was the perfect place for our stay in Gili T! The staff were so friendly and accommodating. We got quite sunburnt one afternoon (typical Brits!) - they noticed and gave us Aloe Vera leaves to help with the pain. So thoughtful! The room was clean and beautifully decorated. We would 100% recommend!!

Jen and Matt's place is in a good location away from the loud music from the main strip, but very much within walking distance to the main attractions. The staff on site were very friendly and go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The breakfast was quite good. I appreciated the artistic flair to the home. The only thing I would recommend is that it could use a bit of freshening up likely due to being exposed to the elements and being on an island.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The room is basic and has everything you need. Breakfast was included and was great! The staff here really helped to make our stay enjoyable. They are so friendly and willing to help with anything you may need. They even gave us some aloe for our sunburns! There is a hammock out front that you can sit and relax in. It isn't far from the bars and nightlife but it's far enough that you can't hear the noise and it is peaceful. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it.

The staff was nice & friendly but the place too far from the beach and a bit too small the entire hotel compound. The breakfast was delicious and a big water dispenser in the room.

Jen & Matt's place was a bit off the main strip which meant it was quiet and peaceful which was just what we wanted. It was a lovely place to stay and the staff were so friendly! We enjoyed their company and they were always willing to help. They cooked a great breakfast too! Would definitely stay again. Thanks so much to Adi, Sean and Ham - you were great!

We are Jen and Matt, from Alaska and Reunion Island, and somehow we met halfway between the two in Indonesia, where we have made our home for the past decade. We still live to travel, Indonesia & Japan but also destinations farther abroad. We love it here and hope that you will enjoy this country as much as we do!
