If you are looking for a Lombok Gili hotel and a change from the often overcrowded three northwest Gili Islands or Lombok's other remarkable areas, Secret Island Resort hotel is perfect for your getaway. The Secret Island Resort presently considers its hotel at least a two-star hotel in a five-star location with many three-star features, including yacht moorings and a guest dock. So, don't hesitate to come and stay here.
Secret Island Resort has solar hot water in their deluxe bungalow on the hillside, two bungalows over the reef, beachside rooms, and 2-bedroom villa. Air conditioning is really not needed most all year round nor desirable for the environment. Secret Island Resort is working toward being a fully eco-responsible hotel, aware that global warming is upon us.
The very special bungalows over the reef are stable and not floating. They are attached to a long wooden dock that is wonderfully tranquil and private with hot water. These units plus their two-bedroom villa and deluxe hillside bungalow are for those looking for a higher class setting with hot water and spectacular views. Honeymoon specials are available. Now Secret Island Resort is providing Wi-Fi internet connection.
The beautiful surroundings and undisturbed nature of Gili Gede provides the perfect location to experience the 12 unspoiled southwest Gilis. It is located just five minutes from the mainland of Lombok island and features a really good-for-the-kids swimming beach right in front of the resort.
Currently, there are three styles of accommodations available; bungalows, villa, and rooms. The deluxe bungalow on the hillside is often in demand because of its spectacular views and sunsets with good privacy. The 2-bedroom villa, deluxe beachfront rooms, and hillside bungalow have limited solar hot water along with two very special bungalows over the reef.
The stable over the reef bungalows are connected to a large dock for easy access to land facilities, especially good for romantic couples and fishermen, and also very good for yacht owners looking for a place to tie up and rent a room right by the boat. You frequently hear schools of small fish jumping and a cool ocean breeze is almost always blowing.
Stable bungalows over the reef, these special bungalows are built in a traditional Toraja-style so that they are very well ventilated. These one-of-a-kind double units allow you intimate and close access to the Tembowong lagoon with its excellent snorkeling and magnificent views. If you have your own boat, you just about have your own private dock too. The dock connects to the land and is only a short walk to the restaurant. These old teak wooden structures come from Java, 150-plus-year-old teak wood, knockdown houses re-worked together making one plush hangout.
There is a small double bed with terrace overlooking an extraordinary view, for two persons as a cozy couple, especially good for just one person. Then, there is Secret Island Resort's nice 2-bedroom stone villa with hot water, living room, and kitchen. It is for four persons, including breakfast. During the off-season, one room in villa plus living room may be rented, including breakfast, for two persons, or for three persons with use of both bedrooms.
There are three newly renovated units with bathroom which are double or single-occupancy rooms. They are next to the restaurant with a good set back ocean view. It is possible to add a flop-out futon mattress for three-person occupancy for an additional charge. It has easy access to the ocean and resort facilities.
There is a very nice economical villa on top of the hill which has a fabulous two-sided ocean view and terrace overlooking the Tembowong bay and yachts. It has two double beds for four persons with limited solar hot water. It can accommodate a maximum of six persons with the option of additional fold-out beds. This unit is perfect for two families with kids, making it possible for even four adults and two or three kids in one villa, with two bathrooms (for a longer term, gas for a full kitchen and ice box are extra). During the off-season, one room in villa plus living room may be rented, including breakfast, for two persons or for three persons with use of both bedrooms.
There are four deluxe rooms near to the beach. Two double adjoining rooms are very close to the beach and have larger bathrooms. The other two rooms have a double bed and a single bed.
There is a view of the Tembowong bay and yacht alongside long dock that cruising yachts can stern tie to. The Tembowong bay can hold dozens of yachts at anchor; there are usually four or five yachts calmly moored. The villa faces west so the view is incredible and the sunset's wow.
Secret Island Resort is located in Gili Gede, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. The Gili Islands have long been known for their pristine beaches and 'undisturbed' nature. The location of these villas and bungalows over the reef docks are along the southwest side of the hill.
Gili means island in Lombok's own language known as Bahasa Sasak. There are more than 25 Gilis surrounding Lombok. They have long been known for their white sand beaches and abundant tropical fish over fantastic coral gardens.
Gili Gede is the largest Gili island. It lays about 26 nautical miles from the busy southwest Lembar harbor. It has five Sasak traditional fishing villages. It is accessible from a well-maintained Lombok highway or you can book a Bali charter boat and simply request they stop by Gili Gede Mate. Secret Island Resort promises to treat you with the greatest respect as you just may be one of the poets or pirates that Sooth Sayers predict will return to Gili Gede.
With a lofty hill in the center of the island, the surrounding crystal clear water, and many other gorgeous mountain ranges nearby, Gili Gede with its natural fully-protected harbor called Tembowong bay provides a perfect setting for travelers to discover the 12 unspoiled pristine Gilis, all of them providing a perfect place to relieve your stress, or just enjoy the unusual that is still off the beaten track.
