Loved our stay at Utara villas in Gili T. The 1 bedroom villas were a perfect size for a couple with a large bathroom and a really comfortable bed. The pool was cleaned daily, and the staff were incredible. The villas are located between the main street and the sunset side of Gili T, so it was great to be a 10-minute cycle from either side. The upstairs bar had a great vibe and was a great place to chill, play some pool, and to meet new people over a cold Bintang!
We had a fantastic stay at Utara. The villas are gorgeous and the surrounding area is so peaceful! I especially loved the swimming pool, a great way to escape the heat of the mid day sun! The staff were super helpful and I can't wait to return!!
We stayed at Utara in September 2019. We were sold by the lovely private villa and privacy. Upon arrival to Gili T, we realized we wouldn't be able to find Utara by walking and hired the horse drawn taxi. Everyone we met at Utara was so friendly and attentive. The breakfasts were some of the best we experienced in Bali and were individualized every day. We took the available bikes for a spin to explore the island but soon realized that if we wanted to stay out after dark, it would prove to be a bit troublesome. The villas are located on uneven back dirt roads, surrounded by empty fields. Although they provide a night light to aid in returning after dark, we didn't feel comfortable attempting this. We highly recommend Utara for those looking for some privacy and being stationed at night. We prefer to be part of the action and explore late in the evening and soon realized that we would have preferred accommodations within walking distance to the main street. …
Utara villas is an amazing place. The villa it’s self is beautiful and the staff are some of nicest people you could ever wish meet. They are so friendly and helpful they really go above and beyond to make your stay perfect. Eta and Ismail are wonderful I also have to give a shout out to Freddy and Fi who provided some fantastic entertainment. You can reach anywhere on the island within 15 minutes on bike that is included with your room. I really did not want to leave and can’t wait to go back again. Thank you Utara villas we will see you again soon.
Walking was a little far from downtown and the beach. The condition of the road was also bad, so it seemed uncomfortable to ride a bicycle. Many bugs and mosquitoes come into the room. These things were a little uncomfortable.
