Overview

Villa Almarik was one of the first resorts on Gili Trawangan and as such, has a great location close enough to the island’s central area for easy access, but far enough away to remain peaceful and calm. As part of the well-known Lotus Group of hotels, Villa Almarik is run to the same high standards as the other properties and has a reputation for service and attention to detail. The resort is set back from the beach with a pool set in a pretty garden - a shady place to retreat from the beach when it gets too hot. Villa Almarik’s restaurant has a mix of Indonesian and Mediterranean dishes - as well as beautiful views of Gunung Rinjani in Lombok - and there is a spa with some amazing Indonesian treatments available. Everything you could possibly need from a resort!

Access to the dive sites from the resort is, of course, very easy. Guests simply walk across the beach and onto the boats and the sites are just 20 minutes or less away. And for those who would prefer to do something different, there are sea kayaks and bikes to rent, horse drawn carriage for exploration of the island or the resort can arrange tours to Lombok to climb Rinjani and visit local Sasak villages.

Rooms

DELUXE ROOM

Closest to the beach, these rooms are both luxurious and comfortable. The 10 deluxe rooms have A/C, ensuite bathroom with desalinated hot and cold water and can sleep up to 4 guests with an extra bed - perfect for a family.

Resort facilities

The resort is a mix of individual bungalows, a large lobby and restaurant and the standard rooms in a single building, all with beautiful carvings and decorations and set in gardens filled with bougainvillea and other flowers. The rooms all have a mix of traditional and modern decor, aircon and fans, private bathrooms with desalinated water, tv and dvd player and other facilities. The Deluxe rooms are the largest - with enough room to sleep 4 - and closest to the beach, whilst the superior and standard rooms are set back in the gardens. Wifi is available in the lobby area.

The dive centre offers a full range of courses with training in the resort pool, plus complimentary nitrox for certified divers. Their 2 boats cater for 12 divers each, but Gangga Divers guarantees a ratio of 4 guests to 1 guide - giving guests, and especially beginners, that little bit more personal attention.

CONSERVATION ACTIVITIES


Conservation at Villa Almarik

Villa Almarik is involved in a number of initiatives on Gili Trawangan and is a supporter of the Gili Eco Trust. The resort supports a local school and kindergarten, has recently started a Biorock project and has won an award from Project Aware for its conservation activities. Villa Almarik actually moved its bamboo-built restaurant from the beach and now removes all beach chairs etc at night - creating much better conditions for nesting turtles. Throughout the buildings, the resort uses energy efficient bulbs and appliances whenever possible, encourages its guests to be conscious of water use and enforces strict guidelines for divers and staff alike.
