The hotel is made up of bungalows surrounding the gorgeous pool, which serves as the property’s centerpiece. The bungalows each have a large fanned porch where you can lounge or even have your breakfast delivered.

Each bungalow has two floors, and there are several different room types to suit your needs. Each bathroom is downstairs, which means that the entire upstairs is your bedroom.

The bedrooms have been designed in a traditional Lombok style, featuring dark wood throughout. The rooms all include televisions and DVD players. These amenities proved useful when we were recovering from sunburns and wanted quiet nights at home just to relax. Be sure to check out the huge DVD collection found behind the front desk! Each room also includes a small refrigerator, and there is wifi throughout the property.

Breakfast was one of my favorite things about our stay. So many hotels are seriously neglectful when it comes to their included breakfasts, but Martas Hotel has one of the best complimentary breakfasts of any hotel I’ve visited. Each morning we were able to select juices, pancakes, omelets, fresh fruit, breads, coffee and tea.

Quiet nights are another huge benefit to staying at Martas Hotel. The location is ideal. You are within two minutes of walking to the main road, but are far enough off that you won’t be disturbed by nearby parties. Being so near the main road also ensures you have easy access to all the best restaurants and dive shops on the island.

The staff also help make Martas Hotel an incredible experience. On the second day of my stay, half of the employees knew me by name. By the time my stay was finished, almost all of them greeted me by name as I came and went. They are ever present, but never intrusive. They will even help to arrange bicycles or snorkeling, take care of your laundry, and recommend dive shops. They really went above and beyond to make the stay wonderful.

Martas Hotel is the perfect choice for your time on Gili Trawangan–cozy rooms in an ideal location, an amazing staff and a breakfast so good I would go back for it alone!

Thanks for this! I love family run properties, and find that these are usually the best hotel experiences. The bungalows looks stunning, love the mix of traditional decor but with mondern amenities and touches. Would love to get to Gili Trawangan, we're in Australia so not too far away flight wise. Now I know where to stay!

Love how the upstairs is just dedicated to a huge bedroom. The place looks charming and delightful. Agree, most complimentary breakfasts at hotels are not very interesting. Love the fresh fruit and juices. Great location. Hope to get to Indonesia soon. Enjoy!!

Yeah, it's awesome to have the entire upstairs just as your bedroom! I hope you visit here soon also! It's really amazing.
