We found the bungalows easily, within minutes of arriving on Gilli T, they're a short walk from the main strip and just as awesome as they look on the pictures. Norman, the manager greated us with a huge smile, as he informed us we had a free upgrade to their resort. The resort is a few minutes away by bike,...

Norman and his bro Hilman are awesome. Always happy and friendly, took great care of us while we were there. Made us feel right at home. Rooms are great for the price, really comfy. Location is just far enough away from the business but close to everything you need. Recommend trying taco corner across the street.

The staff are so friendly and helpful, we even lost our room key (completely our fault) and they didn't even charge us for it. The breakfast is much better than we expected- they have...

The room was spacious and clean with an en-suite and Wi-Fi was provided. Every morning breakfasts and coffees were available and the main road with all restaurants and bars as well as the beach was only located 100 meters away. What made this place really special was how accommodating and helpful the staff were, and honestly couldn't have asked for...

Fantastic little oasis. Couple of streets back from the Main Street so it's quiet and away from the hustle and bustle. Comfy rooms and large bathroom. The thing that makes this place are the staff! Super helpful, completely trustworthy and awesome cooks! The brekky in the morning is the bomb! Can't rave enough about this place. Make sure you hire...

I stayed at Banana Leaf twice in July. Norman - who runs the cottages - is an absolute star. He cares, helps whenever he can and his staff are all the same. Very close to everything too, perfect location and stones throw from the beach - highly recommend it!
