I prefer cactus(peyotl)! peyotl is an hallucinogenic cactus!

As I have read a lot of good things about the snorkelling  in Gili Trawangan and as we were not in August or New Year,I decided to stay some

days in Villa Ombak,"the best hotel of the island",which is no value for money.

The snorkelling there was average because of  the windy weather  and  dead corals.

We had good meals at the friendly restaurant Scallywags close to Villa Ombak( which seemed overpriced ,average and not so friendly).

I was a bit disappointed by Gili Tralala because of the snorkelling and people seem there ,not so friendly than in other place in Lombok!

We did an halfday tour to Gili Meno,the quietest and smallest of the three Gili's which provides spectacular dive sites,a salt lake,a bird museum and sometimes some mosquitoes!

In my opinion ,Gili Trawangan is overrated,yes,you have crystal water,great views,magic mushrooms!,but also a smelly and dirty main street,dead corals...

Then we stayed 3 nights in SENGGIGI in the Holiday resort Lombok, ex Holiday Inn(not a boutique hotel:). We had 1 lunch and 2 dinners in the nice restaurant  SQUARE which offers the Balinese chef Eka Arsanna 's great food.

Magic Mushroom! haha..
I think in Gili Tralalala people are busy with their own business. I felt quite lonely though there, but it was ok. I tried to enjoy myself and made friends with ther bartenders there..

A bit disappointed by this overpriced accomodation
Villa Ombak advertises to be the best hotel on Gili Trawangan,but it is not!I think this place is pretty worn out. We stayed 3 nights at a "… read entire review
