Gili Trawangan is the largest of the famous Gili islands, somewhat of a tropical paradise understandably popular with holiday-makers lucky enough to get to this part of the world. The only way to get to the island is by boat, and it takes around 3 hours after launching from Bali to get to this destination. The surrounding turquoise sea is populated by marine turtles and other incredible wildlife, while the white-sand beaches are bordered by palm trees; the epitome of a paradise island! With no roads and therefore no traffic noise whatsoever, staying here transports guests back to a simpler time, and what better way to capitalize on these vibes than booking into the Gili Treehouses.
The Gili Treehouses have two fantastic villas to offer guests. Set among the palm trees, the elevated accommodation provides a perfect vantage point to enjoy the surroundings and allows guests to peek into the life of the birds and other animals that share the spot. A coconut tree is one of the main features inside the house, leaving no question that the villa is perfectly merged with its environment! Each villa also has its own private plunge pool, air conditioning, of course, a gorgeous terrace with plenty of comfortable furniture from which guests can relax and enjoy the tropical surroundings.
Though it is tempting to spend the entire stay inside the fantastic treehouse, Gili Treehouses is situated within a mere five-minute walk of a beautiful beach. Guests can go snorkeling and find themselves up close and personal with the ocean’s wildlife, which enjoys a relatively undisturbed life around these islands with very little human activity and no traffic. The Gili Treehouses also offer complimentary bicycles to all guests. A perfect activity at the end of the day is to take a gentle cycle ride to sunset point on the beach and enjoy nature’s daily show.
Rates for a villa at Gili Treehouses start at around €220, though there are often last-minute bargains available on booking.com. All rooms include breakfast.
