Staff wonderful. Real locals. It's not a resort. Be clear about that. Couldn't be more Central. Very handy. Good air con! And ya need it. Gilli T is an amazing place! Dive shop just up the street, Gilli Dive I think, is good too. Although it was great, I'll probably do resort next time on other side of island.

We stayed at Samba Villas for 3 nights.
 
The room was big and had a cool cabin-feel, but their cleanliness was a little questionable. Location was great, very nice beach attached to the property where they served a decent breakfast. Possible bike rental at the hotel for 50.000 pr. day. 

There is a «praying tower» close by, so unless you’re...

Have just stayed for two nights in this fabulous place...... Wish we had booked our entire holiday here. !!!! Our bungalow was beautiful and set in fantastic garden just off the beach. The staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough for anyone ... So polite and friendly Will definitely be returning here next year

Stayed here for four nights early January and had a great time. The rooms are spacious and quiet and the service is great. It's also on the quieter end of the main street in Gili T which turned out to be really nice as you could choose to party but also sleep when you felt like it.

I went to Sambas on Gili Trawangan with my two teenage children for a four night stay. Form the beginning to the end, that staff was by far the asset of the place. Sure, rooms and surroundings were very nice, location almost perfect, nice little pool (which we didn't use, I mean; the ocean is seven steps away), but the...

Thank you to all the staff, very accommodating and friendly! Ice cold aircon and lovely rooms! I would highly recommend this as a place to stay, close to bars if you want to experience the nightlife but far enough away that it's quiet! We will defiantly be back!
