Pondok Santi Estate is the ultimate getaway retreat featuring twelve beautiful bungalows set in lawned grounds on an ancient coconut plantation. Each traditional bungalow has a beautiful open-air bathroom, safe, air conditioner, mini bar, fan, lovely front terrace and day bed overlooking the manicured grounds. Private Pool Bungalows also include their own plunge pools, sun lounges and king size outdoor daybed. There are several day beds around the pool, on our beach and on the grounds, which are the perfect place to chill out, sleep or read. During the day, get together around the large 25m central pool where snacks and cold drinks can be ordered, listen to music or just relax on the sun lounges. The resort offers a boutique restaurant, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner while the main beachfront strip starts just 400m away with dive shops, restaurants, and beach bars, so you're never short of somewhere to eat. Cooling white stone paths link the areas of the estate, and coconut palms provide welcome shade in the heat of the day. In fact, everything has been designed to make sure your stay is comfortable and hassle-free. The island, with its coral reefs, is a favorite destination for divers, and one of the best dive spots is right outside Pondok Santi. There are plenty of dive shops on the beachfront where you can hire equipment, and arrange a boat trip. You don't need a boat for snorkelling as there's plenty of colorful coral and marine life to discover from the beachfront, including turtles, clown fish and many more! If surfing is your thing Pondok Santi is the perfect place, with a surf break right off the beach. For a couple of hours either side of high tide, you can paddle out and enjoy the waves. Most days and evenings 'Princess Margaux', the resorts luxurious traditional outrigger is available for sunset and snorkeling cruises, the boat can also be hired privately for island hopping adventures throughout the day. The island also offers riding and kayaking, and there are numerous spas on the island, where you can enjoy facials, massage and other beauty treatments. Lombok is just 20 minutes way by boat - a great destination for a game of golf, exploring the markets or a hike up Mt Rinjani.

Staying at Pondok was a last minute decision as our boat home was full, but it added an amazing end to our holiday, Pondok Santi is so beautiful and calm. I stayed in one of the rooms close to the beach which was amazing the outside shower was incredible. All of the staff were so friendly and helpful. The breakfast on the beach was also fantastic, Thank you :)

stayed in the smaller rooms for 2 nights and was honestly beautiful!! The bathroom is amazing and the shower is fantastic!! The breakfast was also incredible (best scrambled eggs ever) all the staff are brilliant. Could not recommend this place enough - even just sitting on the chair in front of the room with the beautiful view - so peaceful!! 100% recommend and will come again 😊

Located on the "back side" of GT, if we say harbour is front side. 10-15 mins away from harbour, by walking. Or 5-7mins by cidomo/bike. Few pretty room types : Garden View, Palm View, Bungalow with private pool, so on. In love with outdoor shower surrounded by the garden...soo natural. Woody furniture in the room, most of it are teak. Quiet location, perfect for retreat and recharge.. Sunbathing? This beach front accomodation provide you hammock, sunbed so on. It's perfect sunset spot for me, also for sunbathing as the beach is more clean than front side beachline. Swimming? Surfing? Perfect spot...not too crowded. Need quality time with self? This is one of good places in GT to stay during pandemic

We visited gili trawangan during pandemic and the island was nearly empty. Kinda felt like we were the only tourists there. But as soon as we arrived at this resort i couldnt hope for better options. Magnificent views, beach front. Resort is as good as new, large and clean. Overall good maintainance. Do not choose this resort if you are not into nature, as the showers are outdoors. But if you are ones than you will find yourself a little paradise on the island!
