“So well looked after"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014
We actually found this place accidentally while looking trying to get away from the crush of the port area.
While humping our packs down a back lane we ran into Helena (the owner) who promptly showed us the villa.
We could not have found a better place to stay not only because it's a comfortable place to stay but we had the pleasure of having Helena and Shinta give us all of the inside knowledge on what to do on the island.
The three days spent at Sarah Sands were magical, being looked after by Shinta was an absolute priceless luxury. From fresh cooked breakfast every morning to the best price for everything thanks to local knowledge.
We would come back in a heart beat.
Great people made the lodgings even better.
Not a bad price either.

Close to local life, pretty shaded lane,, 3 minute walk to the best snorkeling spots on the island
Use a pushbike or walk... best on the island with no cars or motorbikes!
We have an in house guide book which can help you to get the best out of your stay on this beautiful island. Manager Putu, is there to help you at all times.
Just a 3 minute walk to the beast snorkeling area on the island. beautiful fish and turtles! Close to shops and restaurants, also diving centers nearby.
Interaction with Guests
Our staff run by manager Putu, are there to assist you with anything you need on the island.
We are just far away enough from anything noisy.. we do have pretty Marigio resort on our east side and a local fishing family on our west side... the best of both worlds.
Pushbikes are definitely the best way to get around the island... no cars no bikes no dogs! Gili T style.

Gili Trawangan is a truly majestic island, just off the north tip of main island Lombok, Indonesia. Being just 6degrees south of the equator, the north Gilis' of Lombok boast beautiful tropical weather and an amazing array of fauna and flora. Many travelers from all over the world come here to dive and snorkel the coral reefs,, with an astounding vary of marine life.
Very lay back and easy style living, the island of Gili Trawangan has no cars or motorbikes allowed on the island, so all locals and tourists alike use bicycle, horse carts and feet to get around!
If your in the mood for a bit of fun, there are beach side bars that the tourists visit to meet up and compare all their gili adventures. In my 6 year experience on the island 9 out of 10 visitors all say they will definitely return to the north Gilis' for another visit.
The area around the island is tropical full of coconut trees and bush. The beach around the island is white sandy beach, with aqua blue warm waters to swim in. There are lane ways all the way through the island, fun to get lost in but not at all hard to find your way out!
