Kubushanti is an architecturally designed home and is unique to Gili Meno. A simple design was carefully chosen and built from natural materials of timber, bamboo and stone to blend with the magical energy of this laid back Island.

There is also a safe for all your valuables . The furnishings in this home have been hand carved specifically to enrich the Indonesian feel. Being environmentally friendly people, we have done the best we can being on an Island, with inclusions of a ceramic water dispenser for daily drinking water, aluminium water bottles and stainless steel straws with an aim to keep plastic consumption to a mimimum. We are situated at the quiet Southern end of Gili Meno, however swimming, snorkelling, restaurants and bars are within a short 10/15 minute stroll East or West of the Island or even a shorter bike ride with complimentary bikes available. Let your mind, body and soul melt away as you relax in the silent surround of this divine piece of paradise to do as much or as little as you like. You will feel safe and secure from the stress of modern day life as you absorb the energy that Kubu Shanti has created for your pure enjoyment! LIVE IN THE MOMENT is our daily motto! More

Interaction with guests
If I was there, I'm sure we would do lots of talking as that is my favourite past time. In reality Gusde ( Gus- day) will meet you on your arrival with your own set of keys and show you throughout the property. Feel free to ask as many questions as you like because this is your holiday and we are there to help you in any way we can. A welcome basket with some goodies will be supplied on your arrival!

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.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

About the neighbourhood
Tucked away in the South, Kubu Shanti is a true hideaway nestled amongst the singing birds and a few grazing cows. Kubu Shanti is a 10/15 minute stroll from the harbour. If seclusion and privacy is what you are looking for, then look NO FURTHER! Situated on the South Eastern end of the Island you are within walking distance to some of the best swimming beaches, snorkelling, restaurants and bars. Though you may feel a million miles away from reality, you are only a short walk or an easy bike ride from enjoying all Gili Meno has to offer on our little piece of paradise! Complimentary bikes are also available.
Getting around
This is the joy of stepping back in time and being on a small Island. The main mode of transport is by foot, however have you ever travelled around an Island by Cidomo ( horse and cart ) .......well here is your chance! You can do an Island trip on a Cidomo if you wish, just negotiate the price with the driver..... It's a bit of fun and an experience if you've never done it before! There is an Island hopper that leaves daily at 9am from the harbour if you would like to check out the other Islands whilst you're here! If you have time for a day trip to Lombok to see the waterfall, a local boat leaves 8am daily and we have a driver we can organise for you from our end. Gusde can help you with any enquiries you may have.
