We had a super stay here with my family. Made and his staff really helped us when my kids got sick. The port side of the island is rather busy, but Alam Gili is Peaceful and beautiful a real gem on Gili T, i would be happy to stay here again another time.

This was our first time at Gili Trawangan but we are sure we made the right choice with this hotel. Alam Gili has typical wooden bungalows with beautiful semi-open bathroom and a small porch with table and "sofa"; rooms are in good condition, with air conditioning and every day the staff come to clean and take care of all the mosquitos... There is a private beach where you can have a rich breakfast in the morning and tea and sweets in the late afternoon. We never used the pool because the sea is so wonderful, one of the best spot for snorkeling near the shore. The staff is simply amazing!
It's not right in the centre of night life, shops and bars but it's the perfect choice to relax and with bicycles you can reach the centre in 10 minutes

We came to Alam Gili as my daughter was learning to dive and we have previously stayed in and loved many of the Alam Indah boutique hotels in Ubud. Alam Gili has many similarities and some very Gili Isle differences. It's not quite so lush and green as Ubud, yet you have the ocean lapping at the doorstep. You can eat breakfast on your verandah or in the sand on the beach in the shade of trees.
We'd intended on being active and going diving too, but every morning as the tide came in we went snorkeling off the beach and saw such an array of marine life that it didn't seem necessary. Unfortunately there is a lot of broken and damaged coral, but enough good stuff that this wasn't a problem. Also plastic litter both along the beaches and in the water which we tended to pick up or grab while out snorkeling in the hope that the turtles that we saw each day weren't ingesting it.
We had the seafront room with a massive veranda/balcony that was ideal for us to enjoy. The bedroom was a little hot and we were given extra fans. My daughter slept on a daybed with mosquito net on the veranda and had perfect night's sleep.
The breakfast as always was excellent. Due to Hari Raya there were no afternoon tea cakes so we had the most delicious fried bananas instead. We had dinner at the hotel too, which was good.
Most of the day we spent snorkeling and lounging around the hotel and occasionally cooling off in the pool. Most evenings we wandered into town - so close yet a world apart with its noisy, bustling nightlife.
The staff at Alam Gili were all superb.
Another good holiday - thank you Alam Gili :)

Room tip: It can be hot, so choose a room with that in mind. We 'managed' the heat as the spacious veranda was so lovely.

I visited Alam Gili in March 2018 together with 3 friends, and I'm a little torn about the experience.

We had read a lot of good recommendations of this place, and it was definitely true, that the staff is extremely friendly and smiling which is a great plus. Also, the location of the place was really good if you are looking to stay at a quieter corner of Gili T. After having walked around the entire island one morning we had no doubt that we chose the right spot.

But there were a couple of negatives that deduct from my overall impression. The cabins are pretty spacious and with nice outdoor bathrooms, but the hotel is definitely somewhat worn and old, and the cabins weren't all that clean, and just so damp and filled with insects (that could be general in the Gilis, I wouldn't know, but even several days after leaving the place my clothes still smelled moldy).

Also, we had a couple of bad experiences in the hotel-restaurant (which is nicely situated on the beach). The food was really good, when they had it. While we were there, they ran out of a lot of stuff (maybe they didn't want to order it home since it was low season and not many guests). Also, one day for lunch, we waited 1½ hours for our food. They apologized a lot, saying that the kitchen was really busy (we counted 6 other guests!).

So all in all, a mixed experience. I feel almost bad for giving a mixed review since the staff was so friendly and the location is so great, but still...

From the beginning I felt welcomed by staff and our room was absolutely beautiful (and spotless clean)! Alam Gili is on the quiter side of the island with about a 20 minute walk to the centre of Gili. The staff are so attentive and the included breakfast was more than enough fuel for daily activities. Would highly recommend for a tranquil break on this wonderful little island.
