Our bungalow was great! The only the problem was the shower had no pressure! But you cant expect perfection when you're on an island! Breakfast is good. The staff service was awesome, they speak english very well. The little cafe out the front is great for food and drinks, the staff will bring your order down to the beach also....

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. The staff do try very hard to accommodate guests needs. Nothing is to much trouble for them. You are correct about the water pressure, this can be a little low at times. Especially when everyone uses the showers at...

We stayed for 6 nights in May. Loved the place. Food was fresh & really good. Great service in the cafe or on the beach. Great location. No noise from the bars but close enough to walk everywhere. Lovely friendly staff. Will definitely come back.

So happy we chose to stay at Bale Sampan. The location is perfect!! It's right on the main beach with private beach access and comfy sun beds. Close to everything you need like restaurants, shops and bars but you still get a good nights sleep as you don't get disturbed from loud clubs etc. You can hear the mosque at...

Our first time to Gili Trawangan and we were impressed. The Bale Sampan Bungalows were very nice, the manager Rudy, was extremely helpful and polite. The bungalows are probably on the more economic side of the spectrum but very very nice. Individual rooms with no common walls, so no noise issues. Only 12 bungalows so on the intimate scale of...
