Alongside luxurious resorts, Gili Trawangan takes care of those on a budget but who still wish to be pampered on their long holiday to the islands. Situated just across Senggigi Beach on the west side of the island of Lombok, the Gili Islands provide a more quiet get away compared to the steady flow of tourists on the beaches of Kuta on Bali. The islands offer some of both worlds: entertaining nightlife interspersed with remote beaches.

By far the most economical on our list is Trust Bungalow, priced at IDR 200,000 for a bungalow fit for two that includes air conditioning; might be just the place you were looking for. A 5 minute walk to the nearest beach but a kilometer away from the local nightlife and art markets can be quite a distance for those looking to be in the midst of things.

They also offer snorkeling gear for rent and will direct you to where to swim during your stay. Sounds like the perfect deal? Check out our link to enquire further.
