Soundwaves Beach Bungalows and Jungle Bar Resort offers everything you’d expect from a budget-priced resort – and then we exceed your expectations. With other home stays and hostels on the island, you get what you pay for, but at Soundwaves, you get so much more.
As one of the newest resorts on Gili Trawangan, our accommodation was built as recently as 2009. Every detail was tailor-made and custom-built to provide you with the best possible experience at your home away from home. Clean, comfortable and well-looked after, our rooms are bright, airy and spacious with electric fans to cool you in the tropical heat. Unlike many other affordably-priced lodgings, you’ll also find key services at hand such as our very own travel service,Soundwaves Safe Travel.
A daily laundry service, and for those who can’t quite disconnect from the outside world, all rooms come with free WiFi internet as standard!
Our Jungle Bar and Restaurant are on hand throughout the day and night to quench your thirst and feed your hunger with delicious drinks, snacks and meals, and if you can’t quite manage the few meters across the road to the beautiful white sandy beach, we have our very own loungers just perfect for lounging in the sun with a cocktail and a good book!
Check in 12 noon, check out 11am
no sm.oking in rooms, allowed in balcony area
Hate to be so negative, but after having spent a week on the island it became clear that this is the worst place to stay in Gili T. The bathroom is a shithole- couldn't even open the door at times because of the sewage smell. Feels like you're in the favela - also the mosque is in shouting distance - be prepared to wake up at 5am every morning. On the other hand for $10 more a night we stayed at The Exile- on the other side of the Island (the good side) - what a difference!! Once you go over there you won't want to leave!
Such a shame you did not complain about these issues you have with our place, Joe the sewage is in the septic tank and not possible to smell in the room, smell comes from the outside area at times through the bathroom window but is not our project for sure you can get a cheaper room at the west side of the island as it is 3 klm to get to the busy party island and many people go to the west side if they want peace to smoke etc....I am so sorry but there is nothing I can do about the mosque as this is Muslim territory and there are 3 mosques which cover the whole island...be good if you can think of a solution for that complaint....anyway when I look at your complaint there is nothing much I can improve on as neither issues I can fix....have a safe travel Joe .......
The location was good and the host was very kind and even upgraded our economy room to a bungalow. However the shower/bathroom was filthy and there was no hot water. The wifi didn't work during our stay, and when it occasionally did it was very, very slow.
For the same price we were able to find many other places on the island, within 3 minutes walking in either direction, so we moved after our second night at Soundwaves Beach Bungalows. We moved to the Coral Beach Bungalows which had hot water, working wifi, clean rooms and awesome outdoor bathrooms that were well maintained. For the same price the two places aren't even comparable.
We would not return to Soundwaves unfortunately.
This is very simple bungalow with double bed, fan, bathroom with cold water. For me it was enough. Internet connection was not perfect but there are several other networks you can use. Muslim prayer is going on at 4 in the morning with very loud speaker but I guess you can't avoid this anywhere. Staff were very friendly and the banana pancake in the breakfast was yummy.
