The Gili Islands Overview Of Hotels

For at least two decades, the Gili Islands were a budget-priced stopover for backpackers on the Asian trail, but recent years have witnessed a more sophisticated tourism, which means the accommodation options have diversified, especially on Gili Trawangan. Big business interests are trying to cash in on the popularity of the Gili Islands, the local government is keen to promote upmarket tourist development with a higher standard of hotels and services, and local people with self-managed hotels are partnering with foreign investors to upgrade their facilities and services. As a result, accommodation now includes luxury villas, five-star hotels, villa-style hotels, and rustic-chic bungalows in addition to the simple bamboo-and-thatch beach shacks, backpacker beach huts and budget hotels. Prices for a simple room with a fan range from Rp 90,000 to Rp 200,000 per night, while an air-conditioned beachfront bungalow or villa-style room with hot water, resort facilities and a private plunge pool can be as much as US$ 200 per night. During the peak holiday season, rooms are fully booked and prices are often doubled because the demand quite simply outstrips the supply, so prices tend to be noticeably higher than on Bali or Lombok. To avoid having to sleep on the beach, it is highly recommended to book in advance.

Some hotels have a year-round price, while others have different prices in accordance with up to four different season definitions, namely low season, mid season, high season and peak season. Some hotels will include service and government tax in the price, while others will charge up to 21% government tax and service on top of the tariff. Most hotels and rooms include breakfast.
