Oversized and clean
A polar opposite in many ways to Madak Belo, Yut’s Inn Flower Paradise Cottages is set north of the centre of Gili Gede’s east coast and offers a mix of wooden bungalows and larger concrete rooms overlooking a fenced in lawn garden looking out over the sea.
We had a look through one of the larger concrete rooms which friends were renting: it was an oversized and very clean affair with a bed, fan and ensuite bathroom. There was some seating out front and a restaurant sat towards the northern edge of the grounds. Overall it is an inoffensive place -- comfortable and clean -- and the beach here is more sandy than at Madak Belo, where it is far rougher underfoot. You’re also a good deal closer to one of the island villages here (and its mosque) which may appeal to those wanting a closer look at how an Indonesian village operates. Staff can organise fishing and snorkelling trips upon request. Just to the south of here, the more upmarket Kokomo was under construction when we visited in late December 2014, with a location almost right beside one of the two mosques in the village. Good luck with that.
