Pondok Umalas is just new and can't wait to be filled up with live.
Gili Asahan is a beautiful little island and the place is very nice. Very friendly and helpful staff and they make very good food :-) Keep in mind that you'll stay almost in nature, when you are at this island. It was very hot at night - no aircondition, so hard to fall asleep. There is some wifi - but poor connectivity. Those two things were the only negative sides. We had an amazing stay and would definitely recommend this place and the small island itself:-)
We picked this place first of all because of the great reviews. And we can only add ours to it. Loved our stay here!
As I've been a few times to Bali and Seminyak before I knew I didn't want to stay in the latter. Too busy. Umalas is literally just around the corner and as we rented a scooter through Pondok, all was close by. The villa is set in a lovely area with several nice restaurants nearby.
You can see they made an effort for the decoration. What was very thoughtful was there were plenty of fluffy, high quality towels. The A/C was located to it never blows in your face. The plunge pool is refreshing and the half outdoor bathroom nicely done and convenient.
So I too can say: book this! It's much much better than staying in noisy Seminyak.
It was really nice staying. Cozy and clean. We found everything we need and even more: microwave, refrigerator, hair dryer, kettle, fan, umbrella and soft drinks for us :) The location is very comfortable and safety, staff is friendly and ready to help. Only one comment, we didn't have enough lightening in the evenings, it was dark for us even everything was switch on.
We will recommend for our friends)
The place is amazing. Jana and Lucciano made us feel very welcome. The bungalows are nestled between the palm trees directly at the beach... amazing views too. Clean, relaxed and natural. Great food in the central lodge. Welcoming staff.
Eco Lodge is a very relaxing place to stay. A great place to 'get way from it all'. If you want peace and quiet, with no shops, bars, or Internet for a few days, then this is the place for you! Great to be able to have use of the kayaks and snorkel equipment included as there is good coral just off the beach and the water is calm enough you can easily kayak. With a decent pair of shoes at low tide it's possible to walk around the whole island. Sunsets are stunning!!!
This place is amazing. It's almost private, since the island only has 2 resorts far apart from each other. The sea and the beach are very calm, almost like ocean swimming pool. The snorkeling spots are everywhere just in front of the resort. Very nice. They provide free snorkeling gears, games, and wifi for free. There's also a place for a fireplace in front of the restaurant. The food is Italian and very tasty. There's no other restaurant, so we always ate there. The bungalow is great with a cozy verandah and huge open air bathroom. They provide a fan even though we we're there (early Dec) it was boiling hot at night almost couldn't sleep because of the heat. Electricity is by generator and solar panel. The water is a bit salty. Apart from the heat, everything was perfect and beautiful. Lucciano and Jana were perfect hosts. They're very open, friendly, and accommodated us with everything we needed. Imank, and the rest of the staff there were also friendly and helpful. Overall it was amazing stay.
A gem of a place! Highly recommended. Exquisite attention detail from the beautifully designed and furnished rooms to the delicious food and super helpful and friendly staff and hosts. The Eco lodge provided the treatment and atmosphere you'd expect from a luxury resort but in a beautiful, natural eco-resort setting one with nature! Lovely snorkeling, kayaking and hiking. Perfect for those tired of the usual tourist track who want to explore something new without losing comfort or elegance! Everything was so well organized and thought out we never had a care the whole time we stayed. The meals we had in the lodge's stunningly designed open air restaurant - serving delicious local caught seafood, wonderfully prepared Italian dishes and wine - will be remember forever! A true paradise!
Eco Lodges is amazing. Set on a tiny island they are the only hotel on a huge beach. The set up is super tranquil and relaxed with lodges set apart. The furniture and decoration is lovely, simple and where possible made from recovered material or locally source natural products. Attention to detail is evident. The restaurant provides really nice food too. The staff were super helpful as I was approx 2 hours late and needed help navigating.
We enjoyed our stay very much. We searched for some relaxing time, after some traveling and that was a perfect place. The personal was very friendly. We stayed at a bungalow that's almost on the beach. There is not much to do on the island, only relax, enjoy the beautiful sunset and enjoy the good service. The only thing that is inconvenient is that you have to switch power from generator to solar power in the middle of the night, but you feel very 'Eco' then ;)
Gili Asahan Eco Lodge is AMAZING!!!! I have just come back from spending 3 nights here with two friends. The location is incredible - right on the beach, where you can swim out and snorkel. The accommodation is lovely, and the outdoor bathrooms are great.
Food - insane! Delicious Italian menu and we loved the fresh grilled seafood. Still dreaming about the chocolate pudding!
Lovely staff. 10/10. Will be back!
