Family with 3 kids.
The Ambary House is the best we have experienced during our stay in Indonesia. The villa is beautiful and very clean. The location is very good, only a 2 – 3 minute walk to the main street, restaurants etc. but still you don´t hear anything from the beach bars which is perfect when travelling with children. We are sure that this is the best villa in Gili. We stayed for 8 nights.
Not only is the villa perfect but the service is exceptional. First of all Gde, the owner, was very helpful prior to our stay.
This is our first time in Indonesia and Gde, was extremely helpful. Not only regarding preparing for our stay at Gili but he also gave us great recommendation for Ubud hotels and he arranged everything regarding the fast boat to Gili from Bali (and was able to get us a better deal on the price).
He is really willing to go the extra mile.
When we arrived in Gili, Herman who manages the Ambary House greeted us by the harbor. Herman and his colleagues are fantastic. We were treated like royalty the whole time we were there. They gave us great breakfast every morning with eggs (we could choose what type of eggs we wanted, scrambled, sunny side up etc.), pancakes, fresh juices and fruits. When it was raining one evening they even offered to go and pick up dinner for us. They also arranged to get rental bikes for us with a child seat.
Our kids (13, 7 and 3) loved the guys, they were so nice to the kids.
To top it off Herman arranged a trip for us a 1 day trip to Lombok. That trip is something we will never forget. Great trip around the island but the best thing about the trip was that Herman had arranged lunch for us at the house of his family.
There they served us with fresh fish and great Indonesian food. We will never forget their hospitality and the opportunity we got to experience the local culture, food and to meet Herman´s family.
The pool was great. The international TV channels are good. We and our children also loved the projector and the home cinema.
Even the Internet/wifi was good. We got a visit one evening to the Ambary House from a young couple which had been travelling in Asia for 4 months and they were surprised how fast it was.
Ok, perhaps not “US or European fast” but still my 13 year old daughter had the patience to watch her
