Expat favourite Scallywags is one of the better known mid- to upper-range hotels on Gili Trawangan, located towards the southern end of the main party and not far north of some rather good beach.
Immediately behind the popular restaurant you hit the swimming pool, with the rooms running behind from there. Each has a gardenette out front with a small terrace with deckchairs, then the room and a large semi-open air bathroom at rear. Rooms are spacious and very clean, but we'd happily have done away with the somewhat scruffy gardenette for an even larger room as pool- or restaurant-side is a more pleasant place to relax. Mod cons include internet, TV, air-con and good bedding. We found the hotel staff to be very helpful and informative. Try for a discount if they're not too busy.
