We invite you to come and let the waves embrace you….
Hotel Vila Ombak is located on the South Eastern side of the popular paradise island of Gili Trawangan (Lombok). Gili Trawangan is 7.5km in circumference (2.5km x 3km). Gili Trawangan is the largest of the three islands that make up “The Gilis”, also consisting of Gili Air, Gili Meno. These islands are renowned for their white sandy beaches beautiful crystal clear waters, diverse, thriving marine life, relaxed peaceful atmosphere by day and active, vibrant night life.
As there are no cars or motorbikes on the island, there are a few ways to get around on Gili Trawangan. You can walk, you can ride a bike or take a cidomo (horse-cart). The local transport on the island is called a cidomo (hose-cart) – each cozy horse cart is owned by a local villager or family as a means to make an income. As a way to support the local island economy and as another fun activity to enjoy on your holiday - we do recommend an “island tour” by cidomo.
Things to do
Surrounded by thriving marine life, Gili Trawangan is perfect for water-based activities, including snorkeling, diving and fishing. Over the years, other facilities have been introduced to the island to include more adventure based watersports including kite surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, sea kayaking and much more. If you would prefer more land-based activities you can visit the local “turtle sanctuary” where turtle hatchlings are kept and nurtured until they are strong enough to swim out to sea on their own. Horse Riding and yoga are two other popular activities that can be found on Gili Trawangan.
There is a local art market and a variety of boutiques for those after a retail experience, and for the foodies – a myriad of beach front restaurants, pubs and bars are available each with their own atmosphere and cuisines.
