By Nunn, Stay with a group of friends 

The villa was immaculate, the staff were super friendly and helped us with anything we needed.

The pool is incredible, the garden is super relaxing with little rock pools/ponds placed around the villa to help it feel even more tropical.

The location is quiet but easily walkable in two minutes to the main strip.

Our entire stay was perfect, couldn’t of asked for anything more.

Thank you so much guys!

The house is very comfortable, separate bedrooms, private bathrooms and open living, dining area with a massive screen for movies. It was the beautiful garden and pool where we mostly spent our time.

It was a lovely place close to everything but far enough away to enjoy some relaxing time away from the busyness of Gili T.

Gde, although not in Gili T, kept in close contact with us and Herman attended to our every need.

We were very happy with him and the level of care we received. He organised a number of transfers for us and supervised the transfer of our luggage etc.

We would definitely recommend this place and would definitely stay here again.. Thank you Gde and Herman

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

If your going to Gili T you seriously should stay at Ambary House!

We booked direct and all was handled quickly with the owner. We stayed in July as a family (3 kids 13, 11 and 8) and they accommodated all of us no problem, in fact we felt as though we were not on top of each other at all.

A super comfy bed was set up for one of the kids in one of the rooms. The kids splashed around in the pool from the moment they got up till bed time while my husband and I loved that we could sit in the jacuzzi (which is incidentally the same temperature as the pool thank goodness!) without being splashed.

The place felt like our own wee haven on a very busy wee island. The staff were fantastic, from the scrummy breakfasts to the quick response for ice for our drinks!

The staff also were there at the boat to greet us, help with our bags and also the same when we were departing.

The place was spotless, beds were firm but comfy and the air con in each room a delight to retire in. We could not fault it nor can we say enough about the staff – overall extremely happy with our stay.


Awesome!!!! This villa is close to the harbour (about 5 minutes on foot) and the staff are very kind. The pool is huge enough to swim. If I go to Gili Trawangan again, I will stay there again!! I strongly recommend you who consider staying here.

“Ambary house is perfect and fantastic house. The location is nearby harbor(walking 5min) and we can go anywhere(bar,club,massage shop etc). There are many breakfast menu and the host gave us breakfast every morning. Most of all the host is very kind&nice and this is why we wanna come back to Gili again. They alway give us perfect service and good trip tip. We needed bicycles, scuba diving, fast boat ticket, massage shop and they helped all of that. Also we arrived Lombok, and they arrange pick up service. It was really helpful. All thing they gave us was thankful and we really touched for them. If we come back Gili again, we will have to choose Ambary house. ” (Mukun Kim from Korea)


Ambary House is an exclusive private villa with two comfortable bedrooms with separate connecting and exquisitely furnished bathrooms. A gorgeous swimming pool and jacuzzi, hammock, lounging areas and even cinema-size projector screen for movies make it the perfect hideaway. The staff are extremely helpful and attentive – Ayip and team went out of the way to assist us with some logistical matters regarding our trantsport. Just a short walk away from the main beach, yet nestled in a peaceful corner of the village area. The perfect holiday property.
