Because Gili T is so small, all of these Gili T villas are in great locations, mainly in the middle of the island where they are surrounded by coconut palm trees and local land, close enough to the main road where the harbour, shops, restaurants and bars mainly are, and also close enough to the sunset beach, but far enough away that you feel like you’re in your own private island paradise.

Bicycle is the best way to get around Gili Trawangan so you can easily bike all around the island from these private villas in Gili Trawangan!

These best villas in Gili Trawangan are a mix of individual villas and villas in a complex, however, they all offer private space and staff on hand to help you.

Please note that all of the Gili Islands are Islamic islands and therefore the mosques can be heard throughout the day and just before sunrise in the morning. The mosques can be heard throughout the island so it is likely that you will hear the mosques while staying in these properties but this adds to the charm and culture of the Gili Islands.


How to Get to Gili Trawangan

Now you know where to stay on Gili T, here are your options for getting to Gili Trawangan and the Gili islands.

Bali to Gili Trawangan.

The most popular route that people do is to land in Bali International Airport and then travel to Gili Trawangan.

There is only one port and pier in Bali where the boat from Bali to Gili Islands runs and that’s from Padang Bai in the North.

You can book a minibus and boat package which will pick you up from your Bali Hotel, take you to Padang Bai and then will take you to your boat over to the Gili Islands.

The whole journey takes about 5 hours depending on where you’re staying in Bali and they leave two or 3 times a day.

There are different companies offering differently priced tickets, generally, the cheaper the ticket, the more squashed your minibus or car will be and the smaller the boat will be. I recommend the company Eka Jaya which costs more but is much comfier, you can book tickets with Eka Jaya on 12Go Asia here.

You will need to book tickets from Padang Bay pier on 12GO Asia and get a taxi from where you are in Bali in Padang Bay. Getting your own transport is much easier, quicker and comfier than getting a shared transfer.

Lombok to Gili Trawangan.

Gili Trawangan is much closer to the island of Lombok than it is Bali so it is quicker and easier to get to Gili T from Lombok than Bali.

If you want to go straight to Gili Trawangan I recommend looking at flights into Lombok Praya Airport, from here you can travel from Lombok Airport to Bangsal Harbour in 90 minutes and get the boat from Bangsal to Gili Trawangan in just 20 minutes.

Not only is Lombok Airport closer to the pier than Bali Airport but there are more regular boats from Lombok to Gili Trawangan than Bali to Gili Trawangan, they take less time and if you miss a public boat you can hire a private boat from Lombok to Gili Islands.

Nusa Lembongan to Gili Trawangan.

Finally, if you are already travelling around the small Indonesian islands, there is a boat from Nusa Lembongan to Gili Trawangan which cuts out all of the bus transfers!

Still working out your Indonesia itinerary. Look at buses and boats online on 12Go Asia here. I recommend booking with Eka Jaya which you can book on 12GO Asia:
