Pondok Santi Estate

Spacious, peaceful and very luxurious

Gili Trawangan is renowned for being lively and fun. The Pondok Santi Estate is near enough to enjoy everything the island has to offer – but far enough away from the hustle and bustle to simply relax and soak in the sheer beauty of this island.

The sparkling waters, which surround Gili Trawangan, are endlessly inviting, and you will be able to take advantage of complimentary water sports equipment hire throughout your stay. Find a peaceful spot on the resorts private beach, complete with plush day beds, hammocks and with easy access to one of the islands best dive and snorkelling spots. Try catching some waves on a surfboard, kayak around the island or try to find your balance on a stand-up paddleboard.

Every guest is provided with complimentary bicycle hire – head off and explore the island with ease before stopping at one of its many bars or restaurants, or dropping into the Trawangan Night Market for the some souvenirs.

There are only 18 bungalows, all are full of light and natural wood, billowing white curtains, cushions in muted tones and woven rugs, pots and baskets. Thoughtful touches can be found throughout the rooms – and the outdoor double rain shower, framed by tropical flowers and plants, is a delight.

The Santi Restaurant and Bar gives you the opportunity to experience elevated dining and indulge in the finest wines and cuisine. They have a varied menu and cater easily to any dietary requests. Then catch the sunset and a cocktail or two at Santi Beach Bar, overlooking the sparkling sea with Lombok in the distance.

Slice of heaven

Mount Gravatt, Australia

We were a family of three adults staying in a Garden bungalow. The estate is very quiet, far enough away from the busy Gilli T strip but close enough if you wanted some nightlife. The bungalow was absolutely beautiful, new, clean and comfortable. We had an outside shower which was not an issue as the weather was warm and the back gardeners very private. Lovely pool and best beach area to swim. and the staff could not do enough for you. Special mention to Uda and Sulendra for friendly service. Free bikes were a great way to get around the island. Would thoroughly recommend and we will be back to stay there again next year.
