The Gili Islands (Indonesian: Tiga Gili [Three Gilis], Kepulauan Gili [Gili Islands]) are an archipelago of three small islands or Gili island triplets — Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air — just off the northwest coast of Lombok, Indonesia.
i prefer gili meno. its cleaner and less crowded. however, gili trawangan were packed by tourists, so noisy and dirty
Very very touristy - expected to be able to swim but it’s full of dead coral, everywhere you go. Riffs very beautiful and turtles were around which was very nice. However, very touristy and it could be cleaner. Not quite a paradise anymore...
The three gilis of Lombok. All islands are very nice for snorkeling, food and Yoga.
Beautiful island but the horses... i cant get over it. its pure animal crualty. Not even horses but underfed pony’s forced to carry lazy tourists and their luggage in the burning sun the whole day. Pony’s are not fit and look so tired in the eventing but then still use them as showhorses and rentals at the beach. Never ever saw them drinking fresh water.. its barbaric How they get treated. As a human being i cant enjoy this beautiful island at all because of this animal abuse. Never ever again.
Best choice to holiday. I will never forget this place. This place have a great sunset. When i go to gili islands, i using Marina Srikandi Fast Boat depart from Bali. The journey from Bali to Gili Islands only 2 hours with them. Very fast. When you arrive in Gili Islands, you can deserve by blue water and white sand. very beauty.
Stress and work overload brought me to Flowers and Fire Yoga garden on Gili Air. And I found an oasis of peace and calm. The beds in the bungalows were comfortable and the pillows (for aficianados of good pillows) let me sink deep into sleep. The team was friendly, efficient and served delicious fruit platters, fruit juices, cold teas, brilliant coffee, and everything delicious! Diving into the pool washed away stress. The yoga, for those who are more serious than I am about it, is taught by the very best. I say this on the word of the practitioners I talked to after classes. Wonderful place. An oasis!

What a gem! On Gili Air we found: “Flowers and Fire” Yoga garden, a retreat of calm and delight. Our hosts were warm and helpful. The coffee equalled the best in Sydney. Everything was aesthetically pleasing and so comfortable—fans and air conditioning in all the rooms. The Yoga studios, the salas, of which there were two, were amazing. The treetop one fantastic. For yoga practitioners, prepare for some of the best teaching anywhere. Do not miss this experience of heaven in Gili Air! Ricki Randall
Great place to visit. It's not all about diving and snorkeling. There is plenty to do, eat and drink. There are turtles to swim with, tracks to hike and corners of islands to explore.
amazing place to go..really beautiful coral beaches also really good spot to scuba dive all day every day.
Nice to not see cars although electric scooters seem to be allowed. All islands are still very busy with backpackers, not a romantic place. Good for drinks at anytime of day.
Loved the island, been here 3 years ago, and now we canceled our upcoming trip because of the volcano. Food is nice, bicycles to rent, nice people, clear blue water, and fishing trip too!
Check the weather and go here. It amazing during the dry season. Loads of diving, great food, good music and loads of bars
