Fantastic view. Perfect to watch the sunset or to just have a casual drink in the day. The watermelon juice was very refreshing. Staff were friendly, and the service was fairly quick. Love the swing and hammock in the sea!

We spent a long afternoon at The Exile which was spectacular. The service provided was good and the food/drinks tasted great. We did the usual tourist photos but nothing could beat the view of the sunset we at the end of the day. Can't wait to come back and spend more time here.

If you looking for a nice spot to enjoy sunset at Gili Trawangan, this place you must go! It has beautiful swings in the beach. The staff and foods were very nice. After the sunset they will spoil you with campfire and live Kendang music!

Third time I come to The Exile. The place is located 10minutes away from the city center in a quiet environment. It's facing the sea and has the sunset. Staff is really nice! Quick service and great food / cocktails. Rooms are tidy. The atmosphere is great! Highly recommend this place for overnight stay or having a drink/food

We had sunset drinks at The Exile 4 nights in a row. It's a great spot for pre dinner or evening out drinks. They have a group of guys playing bongo's and drums which just added to the atmosphere. The staff were great, friendly and quick to get you an ice cold beer. Take a pack of cards and play...

Spend some time and go past all the drama and hustle of the main street after you arrive. About ten fifteen minutes along the waterfront so have the camera out. Amazing views to the left and at times don't look right as can be lots of rubbish on vacant plots. Come along and find the music - rasta playing away...

We stopped here a couple of times during our stay on Gili T. The drums and the sunset made for an awesome atmosphere. Everyone was very friendly and the drinks were great! One of our favorite places to hang out in the evenings!

Spend an evening or two here at sunset and you'll want to stay forever. Grab a beanbag overlooking the sea, listen to the sunset drumming (brilliant) and just watch the sun go down. There's a beautiful breeze playing over the warmth of the night. It just doesn't get any better. A good respite from the busy main centre of this...

At Exile's Swing/ Water hammock, u will find the warmest sea water in whole of Gili. It's as warm as bath water. Really really warm. You have to feel it to experience it. Simply amazing. Chillaxing bar with great beach vibes and friendly staff.
