Getting to the Gilis
People seem to think that getting to small islands for their holidays is a major inconvenience, but this is definitely not the case with Gili Trawangan.
Lombok is very close to Gili Trawangan, there are many companies that offer transport services from the Lombok Harbour to the many Gili Islands. Generally from Lombok to Gili Trawangan you will be looking at approximately a 90 minute journey. There are also speedboat options that will take about 10-15 minutes in total to arrive at Gili Trawangan.
If you have just arrived to Lombok airport there is also a drive of about 90 minutes to reach the airport, this can often vary on the time of day/time of year that you are planning to visit.
The price from the airport to Gili Trawangan will cost you roughly 500,000 RP, possibly a bit more if you choose the speedboat.
If you are in Bali prior to visiting us, you are looking at an additional 20-30 minute flight from Bali to Lombok.
Once you have reached Gili Trawangan we can arrange for you to be collected from the harbour by one of our friendly staff with a Cidamo (horse and cart) this will cost 50,000 RP. A single Cidamo is able to transport up to three people and their luggage.
Transportation on the Island
On Gili Trawangan (and surrounding Gili Islands) there are no motor vehicles. The primary mode of transport are bicycles and Cidamo. To travel to and from other islands you can either use one of the slow boats, which leave twice daily or you can arrange with our staff to take you on our private boat, the Kura Kura.
The Gili T sugar shack offers four luxury villas with a warm ambiance, beautifully appointed decor and private balconies. The Sugar Shack is a casual 7 minute walk to the white sands and clear, cool blue waters of Gili Trawangan Beach. The villas are set in a small village and with only four rooms, not only do you have complete privacy, but you get a truly unique Gili experience. You will also be able to experience the vibe of life on the Gili Islands.
All four of our Villas face towards the pool. The bottom floor consists of two Villas, with another two upstairs.
