Rooms come in two flavours; the cheaper are in the main building and are of a decent size with cold-water bathrooms (oddly with no doors) and soft beds (no mosquito nets). The fancier rooms are in hexagonal -shaped cottages dotted across the grounds, each with a cluster of rooms within. Food is decent and not too bad for the price, with both Western and Indonesian on hand. We found the staff to be friendly and quite informative with regard to attractions in the surrounds. For the money it is a bit cheeky not having hot water, but this is otherwise a reasonable option for late arrivals who don’t want to try for a boat to Gili Gede in the dark. In the extremely unlikely event that Bola Bola is full, German-run Palm Beach Garden is walking distance from here (about 50 metres to the east along the beach) and offers simple, aged chalet accommodation at about half the price of Bola Bola. If you’re looking for upmarket digs, Cocotino is about 10 minute’s drive east of here (back towards Lembar) and kicks off at around $200 per night.
