From the moment we were told this was a brand new room my expectations swelled. But true to form, my expectations crashed when the first storms of my arrival bucketed down. More leaks the whole of Wales! Torrents of rainwater cascaded down the staircase through the small staircase window (glassless)
- a fine tribute to the architect. The downstairs bathroom was large in the true open-air style here. However, there was a clear plastic plastic roof draining straight into the bathroom (but not into a convenient place such as a bath). The separate shower was a great idea with the base being carved from a single piece of stone. Impressive! Pity about not having any hot water to stay under long enough to enjoy. However, there was plenty of water flowing over the power points! All of the lights fused at once and the search for the electrician began! Such talent for building new buildings in a state of total chaos in unrivaled in another place in the world!
It doesn't get much better than this if you want accommodation by the sea on the Gili Air without paying huge prices. I was not expecting too much as I knew there is no aircon, hot water or indeed fresh water. Fan and mosquito net provided. Breakfast is lovely with friendly service and overall
the setting is perfect. Fresh water has to be shipped over so one can understand the lack and actually it is not a necessity. It's hot enough not to want warm water and believe me, I like my warm showers! The cottages are very charming with beautiful flowering shrubs around and a stroll away (literally one minute) from the sea, where there is fantastic snorkelling. I do think there was a drain odour issue one night but it was cleared in the morning. These cottages are not suitable for those who don't like or can't manage open-tread stairs and the bathroom is downstairs, with the bedroom and balcony upstairs. Overall, I had a very pleasant stay and definitely want to return.
United Kingdom -
Sunrise has a perfect location on Gili Air - on the east coast with good swimming and snorkling possibilities, a beautiful view over Lombok and close to harbour and restaurants. The tropical garden is so beautiful! We had two "deluxe" bungalows. The bungalows were charming with a nice garden view,
but we didn't get full value for the money since the AC in one of the houses was very poor. We had never hot water and there were no glasses for the tooth brushes, no wardrobes and no hangers. (We asked for glasses and hangers and got some.) Most of the staff were very friendly and one of them made some very nice extra surprises for us. We stayed for five nights and even if it wasn't perfect, we would still recommend this hotel since it had so many advantages.
