Hotel Ombak Sunset

Charming and traditional

The perfect hotel for couples seeking traditionally styled accommodation in a tranquil beachfront setting, the Ombak Sunset is situated around 10 minutes by cidomo (traditional horse and cart) from the main centre of Gili Trawangan. Guest rooms are tastefully decorated in a traditional Indonesian style with dark wood floors and impressive, ornate doorways. Some also have semi-outdoor bathrooms giving you a sense of tropical island living. By day soak up the sun and sea views around the large pool or take a walk along the beach to find your own secluded spot. As the day closes in, sit back as you watch the sun setting behind Mount Agung before enjoying an exquisite seafood dinner. Simply bliss.

Overrated and Unprofessional

Long Post Alert. To start with, was recommended this hotel by couple of friends as they had stayed here and had a good experience. I have a completely different story to tell. We booked this place for two nights. Its pretty far from the main harbour (like 3.5 kms). We asked for cycles on first day (ideally should be free but they charged 100000 IDR). Strangely they didn't had one as all were occupied. They suggested us to ask from nearby resorts (Good policy, staying somewhere and availing facilities elsewhere. FYI aston sunset besides was wonderful and cordial staff and they had events as well like open sky movie on beach for their guests). Sadly we couldn't find one from the rented shops as well nearby. Got one the other day that too very rusty from hotel itself. Rooms were pretty good here. Pool was superb and that's the only thing they have in amenities. We ordered for egg less ice cream from restaurant and they assured to deliver to our room. When the staff arrived we double checked whether it consists of egg or not and it did. The staff said to get back but never did. On calling the restaurant after half an hour they said they can't serve us egg less ice cream. No courtesy to inform. On the day of checkout we had pre requested for horse cart in the morning at 9.30 am as we had ferry at 11.15 am but we were waiting outside hotel in sun with our bags till 10.30 am as they hadn't called for one. The hotel staff was courteous enough to let us know that our ferry is at 11.30 and we should not worry and hurry (so much they respect for our time). Thank You miss Tince (Receptionist then) Never going back. [email protected]

Quiet location

Lovely hotel. They were rebuilding the restaurant during our stay as it was destroyed in the 2018 earthquake so food options were a bit limited. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Pool villa was fantastic! The BEST place to watch sunset in Gili!
