Nice Island gili trawangan! We stayed for a few days at rumah Cahaya! It was a really great stay!
Lovely houses, nice staff, really close to the main street, but far enough that you didn't hear the noise of the busy main street.
Nice interior and exterior really clean and beautiful!
We had a some problems on gili and they were very helpful. Really would go back there!
Lisa gave us a print with tourist information of the island (good restaurants, bike rentals etc.) was very nice!
We had a wonderful stay at this lovely place. The apartments are spacious and clean.
Every morning they serve a great breakfast on your balcony. The staff is very friendly and they are always around, so that we felt all the time safe. Marco&Lisa had been in Italy during our stay and they made sure (by email) that every thing was ok.
We would defenetly stay here again, because the value for money is top!
Rumah Cahaya is an absolutely beautiful place to stay! The accommodation is simple but has all you really require for your time on the island. Breakfast is served every morning on the balcony by the super friendly staff, and there is a little shop and bicycles for hire just next door. The only flaw we found is that you can hear everything through the walls, which wouldn't matter too much except the people staying next door had a baby which cried all night, and this kept us up for the first couple of nights. It could be a good idea to take some earplugs! Overall though Rumah Cahaya is highly recommend.
Hi, so firstly my stay was great. Roughly a 10 minute walk from Gili Free dive centre. Puts you a little out of the hustle of the main tourist strip. Found it a little difficult to find. Used the Mango dive centre as my land mark. The alley right after is the easiest one to use. There was no signage displayed for Rumayah.
Neighbourhood was fine. It's a little slummy once off the main strip, but don't let this put you off. The actual accommodation is great. When the owner is on, a/c works, king size bed is very comfortable. The water pressure for the shower is terrible though. Not much more than a low trickle. The girls are very nice , and the breakfast they served was great.
The local mosque , the prayer starts very early, and is very loud. Might pay to inform people of this.
A great place to stay at Gili T. The room was very comfortable with the big bed, airco and private bathroom. You also have your own little balcony where you get your breakfast every morning (lovely made by the girls of the house!). Marco and Lisa were very helpful and communicative via e-mail and the girls at the house helped us out with whatever questions we had. The island is great for snorkling, sunsets, beaches. Not too crowded at this time of year, which we liked.
We loved the place!!! Location is a bit to walk, but out of the party-night rumble, which was very, very valuable for good sleeping. Rooms are spacy and lovely decorated, safe is available and the property is very well organized and run. The ladies who took care of us even provided very early breakfast when we asked for it. Air-con and Wifi worked very well, unless one of the regular island electricity cuts occurs (property has no private generator, but that was ok for us). Thanks a lot for some excellent days in Gili! We would definitely go back there again!
A sweet little room on the top of a two storey bungalow with a balcony to catch the sea breezes. The location is great - you walk just a few hundred meters from the boat harbour and then about 100m off the main road. It's quiet at night but still close to the action. The welcoming staff helped with everything we needed like bike and snorkel hire. The room was comfortable with working AC and a safe but hot water is only available by leaving the shower running for 15 minutes. We did not find this necessary. Breakfast was good and we really enjoyed our stay here.
