About this listing
This is our original smaller Bungalow over reef. It is build with re-cycled teak wood and has solar hot water. The bathroom is slightly smaller, but that may only matter to the special lovely one. It is the one with the green roof in pictures.
DELUXE BUNGALOW OVER REEF- SOLAR HOT WATER
The rate is for older bungalow with 2 pax including breakfast.
Maximum occupancy: 3 persons with a extra bed charges.
There are actually two special 'Bungalows over the Reef'. The newer and the older, The newer one is slightly bigger. They are build with a traditional Toraja Indonesian style roof that keeps the space inside very well ventilated. These one of a kind double units allow you intimate and close access to the Tembowong lagoon with its excellent fishing, snorkeling and magnificent views. If you have your own boat, you have your own private dock to hang out on.. The dock connects to the land and is only a short walk to the Restaurant and front beach. These old teak wooden structures come from Java 150+ year old Teak wood knock down houses re-worked to make one plush hangout spot.
The Eco friendly Secret Island Resort hotel is located by a small beach on the friendly island of Gili Gede, south west Lombok. There are also budget rooms with cold water bathrooms. There are deluxe rooms with solar hot water bathrooms. there is a more upscale Villa and bungalow on hill side and two bungalows over the reef all with solar hot water. There is a very good restaurant with Indonesia and western food; a regulation pool table and DVD's. The snorkeling is really good nearby. We have special boat trips that we call 'Snorkel Mania' to really let you enjoy the 12 secret Islands of south west Lombok...
The beautiful surroundings and undisturbed nature of Gili Gede provides the perfect location to experience the 12 Unspoiled South West Gilis. It is located just 5 minutes from the mainland of Lombok Island and features a really good for the kids swimming beach right in front of the Resort.
The facilities including a large restaurant & pavilion with Titin's Yacht Bar, sometimes hosting cruising sailors and all others who are interested in having an enjoyable vacation away from other crowded Gili islands. A unique place to meet interesting people
Please tell us any problems you might have and please keep your food in sealed containers. There are sometimes critters looking for a meal. If you keep it clean it is easier for us to keep it clean to.
Nice place for some laid back days and for relaxing to escape the daily hectic of Indonesias everyday life. Spend some nights there after our Rinjani trekking and had (on the contrary to other posters) all 6 days long water in the shower. Bungalow was basic but nice, food was good and service personal was really friendly and nice. Go there!
Schade, haben die Unterkunft leider nicht wahrnehmen können. Unser Eindruck ist gemischt:
Vor dem Aufenthalt haben wir Titin und Peter zwei mal (4 Wochen vor & 2 Tage vor Ankunft) per Nachricht kontaktiert und nach der Anfahrt gefragt. Insbesondere wie wir auf die Insel kommen, ob es zeitliche Einschränkungen etc gibt. Leider haben wir keine Antwort der Gastgeber erhalten, was uns leider sehr verunsichert hat! Erst am Tage der geplanten Ankunft haben Titin und Peter per Nachricht geantwortet.
Aufgrund der weiten Entfernung von Kuta haben wir die Reise leider abgesagt. Titin und Peter waren ab diesem Moment sehr bemüht uns trotzdem als Gäste zu empfangen und haben sehr schnell geantwortet. Sie haben uns eine weitere, vergünstigte Nacht sowie die Übernahme der zwei Nächte auf einen späteren Zeitpunkt angeboten. Dies ist wirklich sehr entgegenkommend, wenngleich wir aufgrund unseres Reiseplans das Angebot nicht wahrnehmen konnten.
We arrived at the bungalow after a 4 day hike at mt rinjani. We Wanted to take a shower but there was no water. When we informed the staff they said they would fix it. The next morning we asked again because we still had no water.. By noon we finally had water! The kitchen staff is very unfriendly and hardly speak any English. It also took 50 minutes to get our breakfast. Aside from this its a beautiful location, the bungalow feels a bit old though. Peter called us on our last day to make sure everything was ok. We told him our complaints and he offered us a discount on our bill. Also the taxi driver who took us to our next destination got really angry at us because he couldn't find the location of our hotel although we gave him directions, make sure you arrange your own transport!
This is a very special place to stay. I've been here twice in the last couple of month and enjoyed my time immensely. This I stayed on one of the two amazing bungalows over the reef. Its quite amazing to hear the sound of the water while you're in your bed. Also to see the sea on 270 degrees and the view over Lombok is breathtaking. I also stayed in the bunglow on the hilltop with the most incredible views I have ever had in a bedroom. I loved waking up there and seeing all that sea, and then dozing off again. Peter and Tinin are really lovely hosts and the entire place oozes with charm. The Restaurant is a great place to relax in the evening with a pool table and bar. Sanusi the local captain is always on hand to help you with whatever you need. If you're the kind of person who likes to stay in sterile clean boring hotels then this is not the place for you. However if you want something truly memorable on your trip then 'Secret Island Resort' is the place. I can't wait to go back!
Es war ein besonderes Erlebnis, drei Tage lang in diesem Häuschen auf dem Wasser zu verbringen - die lange Anreise hat sich auf jeden Fall gelohnt! Das Häuschen ist sehr einfach eingerichtet und schon etwas in die Jahre gekommen - viel Komfort findet man hier nicht. Es bietet jedoch eine unvergessliche Atmosphäre und viel Raum für Staunen und Entdecken. Wir wurden hier verwöhnt von Siti, die hervorragend gekocht hat und bei allen unseren Wünschen sehr zuvorkommend war. Empfehlung für alle, die ein besonderes Erlebnis suchen!
Las personas que trabajan alli son muy amables, nos trataron muy bien. El lugar no era lo que esperabamos, esta bastante descuidado.
If you want a (somewhat unpolished) piece of paradise to hang out in a hammock with a book and a beer, this might be just the right place. That is at least what I did, and had a great time. That the staff was very friendly, the fried bananas very yummy, and the hammocks very comfy, is at least in my book enough for a 4 out of 5 rating. If you, however, expect a full blown resort experience you might be dissaponted.
