Standard is pretty high compared to other Gili T accomodation. Place was 2 years old and everything worked perfectly. Location is beachfront to the main beach and close to the market/pier. Didn´t use the pool much, but small and clean. WIFI worked ok. Generator switched on during the customary power cut on the island. Staff was amazing! Try the banana-nutella...

The accomodation at Bale Sampan was great! Loved the outdoor bathroom area, quite the novelty when it rains! The staff were wonderful. They all remembered your name. Breakfast was to order, not buffet style. Gili T was just a great place to be all up

Spacious, clean bungalows that are beach front. My husband and I have been going to the Gili islands for years and this is always our first choice on where to stay. Bale Sampan is one of the few bungalows that still has beachfront on the busy side of the island and they provide beach loungers and tables for the guests...

We felt this hotel could use some improvements for the price you pay. Our bungalow needed some TLC. It appeared clean on the surface but on closer inspection there was grime build up in corners and areas that weren't immediately visible. The toilet ran about 90% of the time so it being an outdoor bathroom was a good thing, given...

Dear Whinnie, Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us. We are glad that you slept well and enjoyed the breakfast. We are sorry that you felt our bungalows were lacking TLC (tender loving care). Please rest assured, this is certainly not the case. In fact, all of our rooms have been completely...

The room matched the description and for the price, exceeded my expectations. The room (half of a duplex with garden view) was large and clean. The included breakfast was prepared when ordered (none of that mediocre buffet style) and a lunch baguette was quite good. This location as with all other hotels on the east side was across the road...

This review is a little bit different in as much as we have not been there yet but the assistance we have received from Tina at the Bale Sampan hotel/resort has been first class. We were not aware of the difficulty to get from Denpasar to Gili T given that the boats do not provide that service in the afternoon,...

Pros: - Walking distance to everything! Bars, restaurants, spas, bike hire, snorkel hire, shops and a great snorkel spot is literally across the road from the hotel, we saw turtles and loads of tropical fish. Another advantage is that there is private section of beach reserved for guests only which also has sunbeds and deck chairs. All along the strip...

We stayed 5 nights at Bale Sampan on our honeymoon and would recommend staying here to anyone. Location is perfect, just away from the noise of rowdy nightlife but close enough to walk to the main strip for most of the restaurants, night market and bars. We saw a turtle whilst snorkelling just off the beach, which is immaculate. Our...

We throughly enjoyed our stay at Bale Sampan. There was absolutely nothing to fault, with lovely friendly staff, great breakfast choice, beautiful rooms and amazing setting. The pool was great and a little private beach opposite made our stay wonderful. We really didn't want to leave after our amazing four day stay!
