Gili Trawangan’s Best Spots

Here’s a quick look at some of my favourite places on Gili Trawangan – including hotels, restaurants and shops! These are Gili Trawangan’s best spots:

Le Pirate Beach Club

This hotel has awesome beach huts as rooms – but even if you don’t stay here be sure to visit for lunch or afternoon drinks. Their food is delicious and the tables have an awesome view of the infinity pool and ocean. Their drinks are unreal and the pina colada is served in an actual pineapple!

Pearl Beach Club

We chose this restaurant for my birthday dinner and it did not disappoint! The sliders are particularly amazing. The beachfront tables and the cool bamboo ceiling made this a very romantic spot.

Hotel Ombak Sunset

This beautiful hotel is famous for their ocean swings. You can’t visit Gili T without an iconic snapshot of you swinging here! The hotel is one of the best on the island and I highly recommend staying here.

Kayu Cafe

For healthy food try the popular Kayu Cafe. Their smoothies and juices are great and they have a great selection of wraps and salads for the healthy traveller! Unfortunately that healthy food doesn’t come cheap…

Arguably the most famous restaurant on the island! This restaurant has seating on the beach side of the street, then across the road they have huge outdoor grills where they grill up fresh meats, seafood and kebabs.

Bikini Parlour

There aren’t a lot of shops on Gili T, but this cute boutique has a great selection of beautiful bikinis. The shop is tiny but they have a pretty wide variety of stock!
