Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Called in here to treat ourselves to a seafood bbq on our last night on Gili Air. Reasonably priced, well cooked & fresh seafood was had by all. I’m always sceptical of all you can eat salad bars in such settings - but this was fresh, well prepared & regularly refreshed. It wasn’t the most ostentatious of the beachside warangs - but the food was good & the outlook over the oven to Lombok was a lovely setting. Verdict: worth the visit.

We planned to stay at the Sunrise Resort in Gili Air for seven days but checked out early after three days because the whole experience was very underwhelming. We were looking for one week of relaxation, a beach, good food and friendly people and what we experienced was quite the opposite. The hotel premises are decent, though a bit coming into age but otherwise in a nice location. Unfortunately, we experienced bad service at the hotel, with most of the staff having a can’t-be-bothered” attitude towards the guests. This was especially visible at the restaurant. Although there were not many guests, the service staff still managed to forget our orders on several occasions and repeatedly had to come back to re-check the orders. During one breakfast, we received our coffees 30 minutes after we finished our breakfast. Often we were told several minutes after ordering that the ordered item was actually not available, this repeatedly in just three days. Wanting to rent the Kayak during one of the mornings, we were told they would have to check with the Manager for the price. Three hours later, we checked again but in vain and eventually never heard back from the staff, although he assured us that he would find us and let us know. Last but not least, when we checked out several days before our expected departure, the front desk clerk didn’t see fit to inquire why we are departing early or even inquire if we liked our stay, which in our opinion was the straw that broke the camel’s back in terms of customer service. In terms of hygiene at the hotel, we felt like the room towels, and beach towels smelled funky, and at the restaurant, we encountered dirty cutlery and several cats roaming around our feet all the time when we were eating, begging for food. We were expecting a lovely beach where we could spend the days relaxing, swimming and snorkelling. Unfortunately, the beach was an absolute mess in terms of plastic and garbage floating to the shore. Global sea pollution is obviously nothing the hotel can control but seeing 3-5 staff members at all times standing redundantly around instead of trying to tidy up a crucial part of their facility does not make sense, in our opinion. We only saw once during our stay one of the staff members clean up some of the waste. Considering the relatively high price tag for ok-isch facilities and the poor service, we would not recommend coming to this hotel.

So please we booked the Sunrise. Sadly we didn’t realize how bad Gili Air still was after COVID still and there is very little open on the island. The Sunrise had a great little spot with a small area of private beach immediately in front. Comfy sun beds with umbrellas. On arrival you are given a lovely cold towel and welcome drink and the friendliness of the staff makes you realize that you have made a good choice. The rooms are lovely with very high ceilings and a comfy bed. There was a pedestal fan as well as AC which is nice. An extension lead was very very handy also. Small fridge to keep waters cold. Lovely toiletries to use in the room all that you are able to purchase at reception. The staff at the resort are all amazing. Super friendly and go out of their way for everything. The food is really good & of high standard. We never had one bad meal. Pool area is nice but is very shaded by trees. I was a bit wary of some of the coconuts up in the tall trees in a windy day we had. Grounds were always being worked on and well kept. Pool service by yusef a lovely smiling guy who was always on hand. Safone (not sure of the spellings) & Bali were honestly some of the best staff we have encountered at any resort around Bali and a total credit to the Sunrise. If we were to return to Gili Air we would not hesitate to stay again or recommend to others.

I took a while after the conclusion of the year long drama I had with this establishment to decide whether or not I wanted to write this review as it is more about one very bad employee than the establishment as a whole. I am sure the hotel is great, and the staff as a whole I suspect is as well. However, my experience with a manager named Chris was so awful and beyond comprehension that I ultimately decided to document it here. I will start by saying that I did not stay at this hotel, and I regret deeply that my family was never able to do so. We were scheduled to stay here in mid-March of 2020 and were incredibly excited to go. We all know what happened during that week. We were scheduled to arrive in Bali the day borders began closing worldwide. We still planned to go despite warnings from the Canadian government to return home imminently, and only when our flight to Bali was cancelled did we decide it was time to head home. At this time, I emailed every hotel we were scheduled to stay at. Every one of them immediately offered to cancel our reservation and provide a full refund without hesitation given the extraordinary circumstances (despite every one of them being non-refundable expedia reservations) with one raging exception. You guessed it, this one. My original email was met with immediate resistance, unlike any of the other hotels. I responded and mentioned something about writing a tripadvisor review if they were not flexible, as this as we know along with social media are customer's only methods of recourse when businesses behave unreasonably. This was when Chris stepped in and completely lost it. I received a raging gaslighting response in which I was accused, among other things, of attempting to take advantage of the situation, lying about my Canadian citizenship, and lying about borders closing (which in hindsight seems even more ridiculous now than at the time). I then responded by providing a photo of my Canadian passport, along with an article about the Canadian government ordering citizens home. I spent the next several days playing nice with Chris and attempting to appease him so that he would do the right thing and offer to provide at least return vouchers if not a refund. Eventually after several days and emails attempting to play nice and make Chris feel as though he were in control, he agreed to provide return vouchers, which, at the time, I was happy to accept. The situation continued to evolve and as it became increasingly clear that it would be impossible to return given the covid situation, I again repeatedly requested a refund, which he refused each time. Still, I attempted to give the business the benefit of the doubt and assumed that they were likely struggling financially as a result of Covid (like everyone else) and that this was the reason they continually refused the refund. What happened next is what made me realize that it had nothing to do with money and was personal for Chris, and what ultimately led to me writing this review. After a year of waiting for my travel insurance claim to be processed, and after an appeal of an original denial, my travel insurance company offered to provide me full compensation for the lost hotel stay. All they asked is that I provide proof of having surrendered the return vouchers. I then emailed the hotel (Chris) and explained this, and asked that he confirm by email that the vouchers were no longer valid so that I could receive full compensation from my travel insurance company. They get to keep my money, I get reimbursed, everyone wins, right? Apparently not. Chris then went out of his way to in fact send an email indicating that the vouchers were still valid, and actively attempted to sabotage me and prevent me from getting refunded the money. This is when I knew it was personal for Chris. Luckily for me, the insurance company was willing to accept my willing surrender of the vouchers despite his active attempts to sabotage me out of spite. I finally received full compensation last month, over one year later despite the ongoing attempts of a vindictive manager named Chris at this establishment to sabotage me and prevent me from doing so. I am sure there will be a really angry gaslighting response similar to the original email I got from Chris in response to this review, but I no longer care. I no longer have to play nice and try to appease Chris and make him feel in control. I got my money despite him doing everything in his power to prevent it. So, in conclusion, stay at this hotel. I'm sure it's great. I wish I could have. I'm sure most of the staff is equally great. Just beware of a vindictive manager named Chris whom you should not trust under any circumstances.

It was lovely to catch our breath back at Gilli Air's Sunrise resort on our last leg of our trip to Bali before coming back to our usual hectic lifestyle in the UK . Soft sandy beach, not far from our Signature Suite made this a truly memorable holiday.

We loved this place. The special touches didn’t go unnoticed from the plumeria flowers throughout the room on arrival to the fantastic soaps and lotions in the bathroom. Hot water in showers. The restaurant served amazing food and the staff were really friendly and attentive. The pool area was beautiful and refreshing. Bike rental was easy and the bikes were in good repair.

Our bungalow had it's own private little courtyard, huge ceilings and very tastefully decorated throughout. An open feel bathroom and top notch soaps, shampoo, shower gel, body lotion which you can buy as well ( I did). The main receptionist was a delightful young man ,very welcoming. On arrival we were given a welcome drink, homemade cookies and our own bamboo straw to keep and use . All very eco friendly there which we loved. Breakfast was more than adequate with western and Indonesian cuisine, the restaurant was very good and the evening BBQ very good value for money with a free salad bar. All staff very friendly and helpful. Nice big open lounge area with lots of comfortable seating. The pool area was lovely, quiet with lots of great loungers, chairs etc. Snorkelling right in front of the hotel was fantastic, we saw turtles every time we went out. However I would recommend fins as sometimes the current is deceptively strong. I would recommend this hotel although if I went again I would probably stay somewhere a little cheaper as it was pricey compared to others. No wifi in the room!!! For the money I would expect this. Overall though a beautiful room, very very nice hotel.

Really cool and relaxing location and also really great food! Especially our waiter Zazli !! He was really nice and kind and gave us really good recommendations doesn’t matter for what( food or drinks..etc.) everything he told us was just bomb and perfect! We came the last couple days here and we are really happy that we found this place and that we had such a great dedicated waiter! We loved the food and drinks. Doesn’t matter what we order, everything was fast there not to fast and not to slow . They are all really caring about you as a guest. And as I just said the work that Zazli is making is just incredible good! Which is also a reason that we will come back for our next vacations here and stay here. So doesn’t matter who’s the boss: Take care of this guy! He’s really good in what he’s is doing! So take care Zazli! See you next Year🤙🏼🍀 Your Michel and Pia

We got to know the island well during our first trip to Air. It became quickly clear that the Sunrise is one of the top resorts on the island. It's a chilled out and relaxing place to stay. The resort is very pretty with a nice view of Lombok across the water. It has a picturesque pool, very instagramable if that's your bag. Our room was well air conditioned which was a bonus. Food was very good, priced towards the top end of the island which I can happily forgive given that the quality was there. The inclusive breakfast was decent also. For full disclosure at times we could hear some live music emanating from one of the nearby bars at a low level in the evening but having said that I've rarely slept as well at a resort as I did at the Sunrise. You are free to use the loungers on the beach but we preferred the privacy of the pool. The pool incidentally is very deep - which is excellent for cooling off - but I would keep a careful eye if you are travelling here with children. Hawkers aren't much of an issue on the beach (and the ones we did meet were respectful) but there is a bit of a mess further along - some garbage and this continues to be a problem swimming out into the sea. There happens to be shallow coral so there are better spots to swim from anyway. I would suggest a snorkeling boat trip or do some diving and venture further out where the sea is cleaner and there is interesting marine life to be found (For this I would recommend Manta, just a few mins walk away). The location is a perfect compromise; less than 10mins walk from the pier and/or the centre of the island but far enough away from the hustle, not that there is much hustle if I could describe it as such as Gili Air is a wonderfully laid back sort of affair. I would absolutely stay here again.

We ate here several times while at Gili Air. Dinner was excellent if a little more pricey than most other places. Rooms looked lovely but place was booked. Only a small number of rooms so need reservation.
