Cheap tickets sold to gilis! Friendly Staff!
Located near the pier to the Gili islands - you can sleep in and take a three minute walk to the pier before departure! The best thing was that the owner sold us ferry tickets to the Gili islands at the cheapest rate we found (for a return tix/pax, Bali kuta area was offering 700,000 IDR, Padang Bai stalls were selling for 500,000 - 900,000 IDR, while we got it at 400,000 IDR from harmony guesthouse). We chose the middle range ride (Meranti Express). The ticket allowed us to get to Gili Air/Trawangan, then back to Padang Bai from either Gili Air/Trawangan or Lombok pier Bangsal. In between the Gili islands and Lombok, you can take the public boat for about $1-2. While being back in Padang Bai, there's free transfer via a car to your next hotel in Bali. If you are travelling in a group of 5, you can get the whole car to yourself! Since I arrived safely back in Bali, I would testify that the fast boat service recommended by the staff was safe and efficient. The breakfast provided was simple yet tasty (could choose from eggs/waffles with toasts, tea/coffee..) and I appreciate the effort put into the presentation of fruits! Made with love :) We stayed on the ground floor room with fan. It was fuss free and basic. I guess the only issue was my phobia of dark colored bed linens; you can't tell if they are clean and I kept thinking about it the whole night. Also, fan rooms isn't for everybody in a warm country - air-conditioned room is just a few bucks more!
