This is an amazing villa in gili gede. If your looking for a peaceful relaxing getaway you defiantly need to book this place. The villa is nicely located on the hill just a two minute walk from the beach. We met Marti and Sammy at the doc who showed us around. The island is a very peaceful getaway with no cars. Marti and Sammy took us for 3 dives and I would highly recommend them. As a beginner diver I was extremely nervous and had never done more than a 5 metre open dive. We completed 3 18 metre dives with them which were truly amazing. Even though I panicked during the 3rd dive Marti and Sammy were great and calmed me down and stayed beside me for the whole dive to make me relax. If your looking for a peaceful relaxing holiday you defiantly defiantly need to book this place. The villa is stunning and has everything you need. The island is small and only has one resort but this is what makes it so special. Guy ( the owner) will organize all the transfers to this island and is excellent with communicating with you. If your looking to get away from everything- stressful job, busy cities, noise - u need to book this small peace of paradise
The Beautiful Island of Gili Gede is a tropical paradise lost in time. The family loved the View from the villa and its big confy beds, Large Cooks Kitcken and Siti the cook made the best Bannana Pancakes! guy the owner has a diveshop,and organized all our tours.We had an amzining time and cant wait to get back!
Can't describe how beautiful this place is! The villa has the best view of the island as you see both sides! Sunsets and sunrises by the pool! We felt we were in paradise! From every part of the property we could see the ocean, the bed was super comfortable, the food we had cooked for us was unbelievable! I highly...
Myself and 3 girlfriends spent 3 nights here and had the most amazing time, the Australian couple who teach diving and live on residence, Sam and Marty were absolutely fantastic and out-of-this-world hospitable - they cooked awesome vegan meals, taught us how to dive and were super friendly and fun the entire trip! The villa was gorgeous, clean, homey and relaxing - it is definitely a place I'd visit again and again. Gili Gede is a small quiet island but stunning and relaxing with beautiful beaches and gorgeous dive/snorkel spots! Thanks again for a superb time!
Villa Vista is a jawdropping property nestled on the tiny island of Gili Gede. I stayed here with 3 other friends while travelling around Bali and boy was it a find! Gili Gede is not yet on the map of travellers around Bali which makes the island a perfect local experience - which is exactly what we had during out 4 night stay here. Sam and Martie (our hosts) were fantastic! We had beautiful vegan meals cooked for us and enjoyed the pool daily. I came to Gili Gede in search of diving and Villa Vista was exactly the place for my friends and I. Martie and his apprentice Inyonk taught my 3 friends how to dive in a few short hours and we were off exploring the ocean the next day all together. The days were filled with lots of sun, exploring and great good. I couldn't recommend this place enough!!
Full hosting for meals or B&B as required, providing local cuisine, plus vegan friendly if you want.
Take IDR cash, as the island has no facilities at the moment, or for a while yet, and only a couple of places taking cards, so why limit yourself to those.
Yoga, scuba, snorkeling, jogging track partly around the original natural villages, a hike up the hill, cycling around the island (around 20km), 3 fat tire beach friendly cycles are available to hire from the villa, with a bike tour of the island and villages including lunch if you want. The hosts also run the PADI dive school.
The real draw for this place is the location, set on a north facing hill, you enjoy jaw dropping sun rise and sun sets, with neighbouring islands and a couple of volcanoes as a backdrop. You couldn't make this up!
Villa Vista provided us with a sublime experience! Everyday began with the vista of sunrise adjacent to the volcano, Mt Rinjani, and then the promise of diving the azure seas and beautiful reefs of the neighbouring islands, the choice of cycling the island and meeting the friendly locals, or simply stretching out on the deck and relaxing in the pool until the sunset scorched the skies across from Mt Agung, another volcano on neighbouring Bali. The fresh local foods were amazing and the villa herself provided us with all the creature comforts we could desire. We truly fell in love with this haven in paradise, an island as yet, untouched by tourism. We plan to return many times!
Villa vista is on of those places you should visit, the villa has both sun rise and sun set view looking out to two volcanoes and many islands the pool is amazing the staff great and helpful. There was heaps to do like taking a small boat to gili layer for snorkel, walking around the island..if your in bali or lombok and want to escape the crowds this place is for you .. loved it
