Really recommend staying here on Gili T. The rooms are smart and clean and with a touch of Bali luxury including private front garden / patio and outdoor shower. The food is fresh and delicious and the staff are amazing - all so friendly and helpful and work very hard. You can get a day trip to Scallywags on Gili Air which I would recommend - just as beautiful and a great way to see the other island.

After reading good reviews on this place, I decided to give it a go and spend a 5 nights there. There rates were a little discounted due to building work next door which was a fair thing to be doing. The building work was no bother and not noisy.
I stayed in garden villa, with the bathroom outside. It was ok, had a small ant issue but no big deal.
My real issue was that although you are paying for a private nice room there was no phone or any kind of room service in the room. they have big restaurant onsite so I cant imagine why they don't. When we were there 2 of us come down with the Bali belly and were quite sick for 3 days. It was really frustrating that we could not order food to be brought to the room. We had to get out of bed and go out to order food from the restaurant.
When the food arrives they don't even use trays they just bring it on plates. Apparently they don't have trays, and it was a good idea to start using them LoL
The restaurant is painted white, like many of the others along the strip. But its dirty and looks very tired. There is so much choice in Gilli and only 2 doors down is the Beach club which is also painted white and looks clean and inviting.
I had steak twice at Scallywags both times asked for it medium rare, both times it came 'blue' sent it back both time asked for medium, both times came back rare. Unfortunately they do not know anything about steaks.
The manager of the restaurant Swedish lady was very helpful and friendly which was made the stay bearable.
Oh and to top it off the pool was green for 3 days, so swimming in it was not an option.
Poor management . I hope it gets better.

Room Tip: Dont stay in the ocean view rooms

If you go to Gili T.. Then you have to stay or at least eat at Scallywags!!

I was lucky enough to stay for 6 days, amazing rooms, lovely pool and a fantastic restaurant on the beach.
The staff are super friendly. Must try is the seafood BBQ.

Thank you to all the Scallywags family for everything

we were in Gili this February and we had a great time. The staff is friendly, the good was great and the rooms are clean and comfortable. I really liked the little private garden area in front of the room. The pool is clean and perfect temperature. We would stay here anytime. The management made sure we had the best service and vacation. Even if you are staying with the. You can still use the pool if you purchase drinks or food. The restaurants bbq is the best western food we had in the the area. The fish and seafood is super fresh, and the beers is cold.

I stayed here twice on my trip and loved the place! Friendly staff, smart rooms and also the best place to eat on the island. The Bbq is amazing, I ate my way through the menu and one of the few places you get a cold coconut! If your on Gilli T and want somewhere that is up to date, clean and where your made to feel very welcome then get down to Scallywags :)
