This was the most relaxing and pleasurable holiday in the best hotel on Gili Gede. We spent two weeks here. The deluxe bungalow was AMAZING. We had a magnificent view of the bay and reef, as well as Mt Agung in the distance. The bungalows are equipped with everything you need plus extra living space. The bathroom is so charming, with the showerhead made from a watering can! We loved that it was an eco friendly, and the main reason we first chose this place. What we didn't expect was the magnificent experience that came with it. The staff are all local to the island and nothing is too much trouble. We were taken for boat rides, you can grab the canoes and paddle and explore the island. We attended a local wedding and also got to do a night snorkel! We felt very included in the community from the moment we arrived. Everywhere we went we were greeted with a smile. The menu in the restaurant is varied and absolutely delicious. We never got sick of dining here for breakfast, lunch and dinner, not to mention the great view from each seat in the restaurant! We cannot wait to return.…
We are enjoying six days at Hula Hoop. The place is empty. Its quiet and very comfortable. The food is tasty. We have walked around the island and paddled the 6km return trip to Gili Ringit and Gili Layar. You'll be glad you came.
What a special little place this is. The views are just stunning, but it is more then that.....All the bungalows have been build with so much love and originality. The restaurant has great food and the staff is super helpfull and friendly. In front you can do some really nice snorkeling, or ask for a boat trip to one of the surrounding uninhabitat islands, it makes you feel like a real Robinson Crusoe. The best place to wind down during a holiday.
Breathtaking view from our balcony.. super friendly service and helpful staff... great food and the restaurant always busy (best sunset spot in gili gede island) and they provide outdoor activity like canoeing snorkeling, fishing (just ask the staff) they also provide board game and many reading and relaxing spot with view❤️... we had wonderful time here definitely will come back again for sure..
What a wonderful place (eco-friendly)! Foods are really tasty ! I love their Tamarind juice, so refreshing! My kids were so happy, they did canoeing, sailing , snorkelling. The staff were really helpful and friendly. Great job Pak Karsten and Team. Thank you !
A relaxed, friendly atmosphere, very good value. Karsten (he likes podcasts !), Raka and the team will take good care of you. The snorkelling left and right in front is good. You can also use it it for quick, cheap access to the surrounding 3 small other Gilis (I would recommend Gili Asahan for best snorkeling - coral, fish & maybe turtles). Gili Getaway fast boats from Bali provided very efficient service
Where do I start - I researched this place for weeks leading up to my visit and It not only met my expectations but exceeded them. Now if you are like me and like to stay in places with soul and authenticity then this is the place for you- it has soul, character, flare and some of the friendliest staff you will meet. It is an eco lodge that runs off wind and solar power so no air con- you won’t need it with the cool breezes off the ocean, no tv- if you need a tv when In Gili Gede I’d suggest not going and maybe go to Kuta , no hot water however the tanks heat up nicely to enjoy a quick warm water wash. The snorkelling out front is amazing as is the smaller islands surrounding which the team will organise tours for you. The food is great and reasonably priced. The grounds are rustic and warm with many places to chill including hammocks. The staff are brilliant and it was an absolute joy to stay there. Thank you to the owner Billy, Rocko, weira and team. …
We loved our stay at hula hoop. Gorgeous setting, simple but artistic and considered design. Lovely staff. nice food. Very relaxing. Really good snorkelling- we saw turtles! Highly recommend staying here.
What a magical place this was! Gili Gede is not yet hit by the big tourist crowds and is a perfect get away from all noise and hustle and bustle. Stayed at Hula Hoop with my husband and our son and had the best time! We felt so welcomed and the setting is really relaxed and beautiful. Unlike all other experiences I've had around Bali and Lombok. Hope to be able to come again one day!
If you are seeking a true escape from all the hustle and bustle, Gili Gede and Hula Hoop Bungalows - this is the place where you want to be. Do not expect a fancy five-star experience. Expect an eco-friendly, simple, clean and cozy bungalows with no A/C, but with everything you may need for a perfect relax. Raka (the manager), Wira, Sofian and all the rest of the staff were really great - hardworking, but always smiling, ready to help and make our stay even more pleasant. If you like snorkeling, you can see something right in front of the bungalows, but make sure to do a trip to Gili Renggit and Gili Layar. Amazing corals, turtles and a great divers of fish.
