If you are traveling to Bali but are looking for a very quiet spot to spend a few days, go to the Gili islands, off the coast of Bali. There is a lovely beach front boutique hotel called Villa Julius on the island of Gili Trawangan, an oasis of calm because there is no motorized traffic or shopping malls.
Villa Julius is the first boutique hotel on Gili Trawangan and it offers panoramic seaside views over the island of Bali in the distance. The hotel prides itself on rustic tranquility, but still offers guests the latest modern conveniences. It combines design and innovation to create a small bohemian chic hideaway for the modern traveler. The hotel has its own bohemian restaurant but if you want to sample the culinary delights on the island, there are many other restaurants offering anything from traditional Balinese and Indonesian food to French crepes.
The Balinese-style hotel offers central free-form natural stone swimming pools that are surrounded by lush gardens full of palm trees and Japanese bamboo. Each of the seven rooms are individually and uniquely decorated with King size beds set under the traditional Balinese style roof with en-suite bathrooms with open-air showers.
Gili Trawangan is the perfect destination for both honeymooners and families on holiday. Regarded as Indonesian’s best kept secret, the island is a favorite getaway for travelers looking for a true tropical island experience without the commercial excess and noise of Bali.
Rooms start from $95 during low season and $110 during high season making this a wallet friendly escape to a luxurious and secluded island getaway. Bookings can be done by email, phone or sms.
