Located on the paradise island of Gili Meno, maoMeno is a place for Peace, Art and Inner Journeys. Enjoy daily Yoga classes and healthy breakfasts.

maoMeno is surrounded by coconut fields and friendly cows, within a 5 minute walk to the best beach on the island. Guests can enjoy the pleasures of stargazing at the fire pit area, take a relaxing oil massage or shop at the boutique.

The spaces are crafted with an eye towards unifying nature, simplicity and elegance.

The space

The TERRACE BUNGALOW has a stunning sunset views over the green fields. Its traditional Lombok "Sasak style" construction has high ceilings and 100% wood. Special features including a recycled teak Balinese bed frame and a semi open attached bathroom make this bungalow unique. We invite you to shower under a rain of stars, one of the pleasures of island life.

We have recently upgraded the bungalow, with new teak interiors, AC and high pressure hot/cold water shower.

Guest access

Within the extensive property there is a common dining area where guests can have breakfast, special dinners or spend lazy afternoons playing games.

Given its unique location, stargazing is stunning at maoMeno. We have recently installed an ironwood deck with a fire pit and bean bags for dreamy night under a rain of starts.

The Yoga Shalla is available 24/7 for practice, contamplation and meditation. We provide yoga mats and props for guests as well as bicycles for rent.

If one were to step out of the intimate microcosm of maoMeno, the island of Gili Meno offers stunning beaches and turquoise waters full of life.

Interaction with guests

Our manager Eva will kindly assist you during your stay.

She can arrange snorkelling & diving trips amongst many other activities.

Most of our guests at maoMeno are independent travelers, including artists and writers looking for a unique retreat setting.

Other things to note

We kindly ask guests to be mindful with the use of fresh water and AC as resources are scarce on Gili Meno.

Grounds are beautiful, but buyer beware: "traditional bungalow" means there are huge air gaps that allow bugs of all kinds to enter freely. Meno is a very underdeveloped island so there are a lot of mosquitos, German cockroaches, ants of all sizes, large spiders, and wasps. All things we found in our bedroom at one point and also evidenced by the numerous stains on the mosquito net and wasps nests on the ceiling. The property manager was helpful and very sweet, but we wish we had been more aware of how open air the actual bedroom was and that there was more diligent pest control. We expected mosquitos, but this was brutal. We barely survived one night and bailed.

Kike's place was so quaint and beautiful! Everything was neat and tidy and Lucia made excellent beach and restaurant recommendations! If you get lost just ask for Kike by name. He wasn't kidding when he said the whole island knows him!

We had 5 nice nights in the small garden bungalow in MaoMeno. The resort is in the middle of the island's south so each coast of the smallest Gili island can be reached in 5 mins walk. There are Yoga lessons everyday, though we didnt join one. It is very quite, especially in the night, because there is no motorized traffic on the whole island. The bathroom is outside which made this location very special to us. The walls of the bungalow is not totally closed so insects have to be considered around the bedroom. On the whole island there are hardly any streetlights so for reaching the spot at night you have to carry a good torch (or smartphone with light ;)). We visited MaoMeno during Ramadan so we can not give an opinion to the breakfast (no staff in the kitchen) - but we can recommend the cafes on the beach which have a very good one :) All in all we had a nice and relaxing time there :)

Kike and his magical oasis were great! We stayed in the terrace room, which was the perfect combination between rustic and luxurious and zen - a very interesting and relaxing atmosphere that perfectly matches the laid-back, quiet and peaceful vibes of Gili Meno. Unfortunately we didn't have time to do any yoga, but we had many delicious smoothies - yum! The food on Gili Meno was also unbelievable - especially Sasak's Cafe, where they play music every night. Overall, I would highly, highly recommend MaoMeno. Just to note, bring a flashlight, as you'll be waking through the woods on a dirt path in the dark for a good 10-15 minutes sometimes. It's all part of the experience :) Meno is the closest thing I've seen to paradise!

Let's just say that Lucy the host was having a bad day and that's the reason why she provided us with an atrocious and unforgettable experience. So I will just concentrate on the bungalow. We were surprised with the fact that there were very few pics of the Terrace Bungalow... Now we know why... The bungalow was in terrible shape, (we share some pics on Tripadvisor and (URL HIDDEN) dirty mosquito net, disgusting smell in the bathroom, etc. The location was not so bad, once you found the place, which was pretty challenging. Overall for the price it's not worth it since the island has plenty of other places right on the beach or very close to it. Needless to say we did not stay, we are not picky at all, but it was disgusting. We chose a place call Tortuga Bungalow, 2 mins walk to the beach, new and clean, breakfast included (unlike here) AC and only 30USD per night, the cherry on the cake Bolong and his family are the most welcoming people ever! Maybe this place is not "so bad" but for the price... Trust me, you can do much much better. By the way,.. we asked for a refund and the answer was no, It is a shame because we were traveling on a tight budget but we just could not stay here.

We had a wonderful and relaxing 2 week stay at Mao Meno! Mao Meno is surrounded only by nature, in a very peaceful and tranquil environment. The bungalow is well designed, clean and simple with a good mosquito net over the bed. The outdoor bathroom is cool, we got used to the cold saltwater showers, they were quite refreshing in the November heat. The water does has a sulphur odour as it comes from the ground, but you can opt for freshwater at a small cost. We loved seeing the sky full of stars at night and waking up to the sounds of nature in the morning - birds, large geckos with a unique sound and cows. There is a beautiful & large yoga & meditation area in front of the bungalow. Lucy looked like an amazing yoga teacher, highly recommend this place if you want a yoga or meditation retreat! Gili Meno is a beautiful and quiet tiny island paradise. We loved exploring all the different snorkelling spots around the island, thanks Kike & Lucy on tips on where the best snorkelling was and for lending us your water shoes, we loved the snorkelling, pretty amazing! Kike and Lucy are such lovely, down to earth people and great hosts! We enjoyed their company & the delicious breakfasts they made us. And we enjoyed hanging out with the 1 month old kitty and its mum and seeing it grow over the 2 weeks, just adorable! The bungalow's location is in the middle of nature, but the walk to the beach and restaurants is not far, 5 to 10 minutes walk to the beach depending which side you choose to go to. The West (approx. 5mins) and North (approx. 25 mins) have great snorkelling, but if you want to lay out on the sand and swim, the south east (approx. 10mins) was pretty nice. We swam all around the island and got to see lots of turtles, thousands of beautiful fish and coloured coral. Overall we had a wonderful stay and recommend staying at Mao Meno for nature lovers and those wanting a yoga/meditation retreat., Thank you Kike and Lucy for all your generosity and we hope to see you again one day! :) Tip: don't forgot to bring a good torch, you will need this when walking to & from dinner at night as your path is only lit by the stars and moon! Also our favourite places to eat were Meno Dream & Warung YaYa.

Kike was a great host, always ready to help us with any questions we had about the island, etc. The space they've created at MaoMeno is walking distance from the beautiful beaches on Gili Meno. Although I didn't end up getting the chance to do some yoga, the space they have for classes is great! Bungalow was cute, intimate, natural - everything you'd want on such a beautiful island. Highly recommend it! One thing to be aware of - there are only two boats from Gili T to Meno every day (at 9 am and 4 pm, I believe) so if you are arriving from Bali in between that time you'll have to charter a boat which will cost around 30 USD. Not a big deal but if you want to get on the local boats be mindful that they don't go back and forth all the time :)

Hi, my name is Kike, I was born in Spain. Lived part of my childhood in Morrocco, which certainly inspired me to look further on through the different paths in Life.

My girlfriend and me are currently living in Gili Meno, a paradise island, just one and a half hours from Bali (Indonesia). We have built a spacious village resort, specialized in yoga retreats and other life-celebrating activities,.

Before starting to build this place (2 years ago) I had the opportunity to travel around this beautiful world. To name some, Santa Teresa (Brasil), Byron Bay (Australia), Essaouria (Morrocco), Raja Empat (Indonesia)....Gili Meno...great places!
