Sally P, Kuala Belait – Brunei

We booked this for a bit of relaxation after climbing Rinjani. We are a group 5 adults and this place was just perfect! We were worried at first that Gili air would be too quiet, however this was not the case, it was just perfect for a laid back island getaway.

There are enough communal and secluded seating and relaxing areas to get together or relax in privacy. The other concern we had when booking was the lack of air con in the bedrooms. However, this was not a problem at all as the room temperature was fine at night with the fan, and we didn’t notice any Mosquitos. The house was beautiful and really clean. Fella was an amazing cook, she cooked an absolute feast for us. It was the best food we enjoyed on the island… I wish we had her cooking every night! Fella and andy were really helpful too.

Fella took our washing to be cleaned and bought beer (and even put it all on the fridge for us!) Andy helped us navigate the island on our first day and changed our boat arrangements for us. On request, Andy bought us fireworks and a cake from Lombok (we celebrated our anniversary there) it was the perfect balance between having somebody to help us and having privacy. They would both provide whatever support or information that we needed.

The beach outside the house is beautiful, although its a bit coralline so we needed flip-flops on parts. The sun beds are super comfy, however… There are only 4 and the house sleeps 6. Over all, it was awesome and we can’t wait to go back!!
