Indonesia is the world’s largest archipelago and as such provides the widest range of tropical island paradise, some of which are still so virginal just waiting to be discovered. And for those who want to get the best remote island paradise experience, Gili Islands is simply a must-go. Three miniature island paradise dotting the Lombok Straight in the Bali Sea, fringed by white sandy beaches, and foliaged with lush palm trees – this is the dream island paradise that you have been waiting for.
Whether you want to explore Gili Trawangan where it is famed for its famous dive sites or Gili Air, which is perfect for honeymooners and tourists just wanting a quiet respite, getting your Gili Islands accommodation might be intimidating if you are not going to plan well ahead of your travel. Although the 3 islands paradise were actually discovered by backpackers who wanted to escape the already crowded and rowdy atmosphere of Bali, the tourism infrastructure including resorts and accommodations in the Gili Islands are still in its infancy, to say the least. Except perhaps for Gili Trawangan where the Lombok government is speeding the building of its eco-tourism infrastructure. Nonetheless, if you really want to experience the thrill of staying albeit temporarily in one of the Bali-Lombok areas prized islands, you just have to book your Gili Islands hotel accommodation well in advance.
In Australia, there are tour operators and hotel accommodation booking specialists that provide for fast and easy booking in the islands of Trawangan, Meno, and Air in the Gili chain just off Lombok and overlooking Bali. Now, if you are already in Bali, you can ask your hotel for travel and accommodation arrangements for a Gili Islands expedition. However, you have to understand that if you book your accommodation this way, there is no guarantee that the hotel staff or even the tour operator can book you the best resort or hotel accommodation in Gili Trawangan, Meno, or Air. Why? Well, most tourists who go to the islands of Gili would have booked their accommodations in advance so it will be quite challenging to find one for you.
It is for this reason that it is better to book early for that once-in-a-lifetime Gili Islands Bali experience. A good search on the internet will help you land on the best provider for a tour package on your desired time of the year. Just make sure that company provides excellent and really fast booking so you can get to the tropical waters of the Gili Islands chain in no time and free from any hassle.
