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 personalized 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, snorkeling 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.
The Gili Islands are three small islands dotted with coconut groves and surrounded by warm, clear seas and vibrant coral reefs. The largest and most popular of the three islands, is Gili Trawangan, located less than 10 minutes by speedboat from mainland Lombok.
This little island combines the best of a tropical island lifestyle with the facilities and services to make an ideal holiday getaway. There is excellent snorkeling and diving off the coast, soft white sand beaches for swimming and sun bathing, a fantastic selection of restaurants and bars for dining and socializing, and a lively nightlife scene at night.
Although Gili Trawangan was once strictly a destination for budget travelers with a "party island" reputation, it’s visitors now cover a wider range visitors than ever - accommodating luxury travelers, families with children and couples on romantic getaways as well as the backpacking set. Whether your holiday focuses on scuba diving courses, horseback riding, fishing, mini-golf, yoga, or simply relaxing on the white sandy beaches, this is the perfect place to sit back and soak in the sweet island lifestyle.
TRANSPORTATION TO GILI TRAWANGAN:
There are several options available to the Gili islands. By far the fastest and easiest way to arrive from Bali is by fast boat, which will deliver you directly to the jetty in Gili Trawangan, just minutes from our doorstep. We are happy to offer discounted fast boat tickets to our guests who are interested.
There are also local flights and the public ferry, both of which arrive in the south of Lombok and require ground transportation to Bangsal Harbor where you can take one of the public boats to Gil Trawangan. (Be sure to read our travel advice on avoiding hassles and scams in our guest travel information you receive upon booking with us.)
GETTING AROUND THE ISLAND:
One of the best features of the Gili islands is that no cars or motorbikes are allowed, making the Gili islands the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the busier areas of Indonesia. Kupu Kupu Cottages are conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the best beaches, shops, and restaurants that the island has to offer. You can just as easily reach the harbor, night market, sunset viewpoint , or the top of the Panoramic Trawangan Hill from our ideal central location. Nothing on the island is too far to reach by foot, but renting a bicycle for the day is an easy and affordable option to leisurely explore the island. Just ask our staff about renting our cottage bikes.
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!
We are pretty laid back here on "Freedom island," however we do ask you to respect a few simple house rules:
- No Smoking indoors - but outside is cool with us.
- Be conservative with water usage.
- Switch off the AC and lights when heading out.
- Check out is by 10:00 AM and check in at 11:00 AM
(but we can keep your bags for you if you wish to further explore the island outside of these times.)
- Finally, you are strictly required by us to ... ENJOY YOUR ISLAND HOLIDAY!
Should you have any more questions about staying with us, please don't hesitate to ask. We hope you enjoy your stay at Kupu Kupu Cottages on Gili Trawangan!
The crew was super nice, they even came to the harbor to look for us, even we did not know the time we were arriving. Also San and Maria, personal working there, made us feel at home every single day. San was very nice always taking care, explaining us things from the island and offering us fruit, good company and interesting conversations. Besides Kupu Kupu Cottage are very clean, very good location, big room, nice bathroom. Very good experience. The only thing was the aircon was not working first day, but we told to Jen & Matt and immediately they did the impossible in the distance to fix it. Thanks a million
We had a fantastic time staying at Kupu Kupu cottages. We were welcomed off the ferry and shown to our lovely room. The place was beautifully furnished and well thought out and we loved the outdoor shower. Breakfast was amazing too and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Fantastic place to stay! Tucked away from the main road so it is nice and quiet, but not too far away to walk to the main restaurants, pubs and the beach.
The room is clean and the staffs are helpful. I really enjoyed my time here I extended my stays! Have everything I need in the room, ac, comfy bed, clean bathroom and my favorite is the decor of the bathroom.

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 6 years. We still live to travel, both in Indonesia and destinations farther abroad. We love it here and hope that you will enjoy this country as much as we do!
