Good location if you are looking for snorkeling right front of the hotel beach, but not food ”
Location wise is good if you like quiet & private beach especially at night. Hotel garden area definitely need some clean up and tidy up to make more neater. I also think that the hotel needs better facilities provided such as adult life-jacket for snorkeling etc (only provide kid's life jacket). Staff needs to be more attentive and friendly, ordered 2 coconuts from the kitchen and we waited for 20 mins, when asked again they said need to wait and another 10 mins it seems they forgot about it again & the coconut water is not fresh as well, staff overall not very friendly except for housekeeping staff. Breakfast served from our opinion is quite disappointing especially Eggs Benedict & the crepe. Not really enjoy that will really want to skipped breakfast. However, the rooms are okay to stay. Overall, we were less happy with the breakfast, the garden and the staff but room is still a good one.
It was really a great place to stay at this island. Very privacy place with good ambience. Nice breakfast served by the beach. The staffs were so friendly. the things that should be done better maybe the pool water cleanliness. not that clear but still clean.
Staff were amazing. Little frogs live among the pebbles in the bathroom. Had to pay for the bicycles but don't know if this is the norm for the pricier hotels in Gili T or not. Pool needs a major upgrade - mold showing on the feet of the sunbeds and between tiles. Tiles in pool also loose and broken and cut me on my knee. Location is sublime, quiet nights and calm days. Very few people actually make it this far away from the harbour and it was nice getting away from the noise. Nice snorkeling spot off the beach but go only during high tides because there are many sharp corals and rocks on the seabed during low tide and you will have trouble walking out to sea. Again, staff were very good.
Perfect hideaway, lovely staff, Perfect comfort for Little Money, always again! ”
I had a stay of 5 nights in feb 2019 in this beautiful and lovely resort. It was all Perfect! Especially for a decent rate you got a really luxurious Villa! Unbelievable. Very good breakfast and to point out an amazing staff, always friendly, always warm welcoming you feel totally at home. Thanks to everyone in this secret precoius Place for some perfect vacation days.
Nothing Left to chance-AMAZING!”
A very well-thought through boutique hotel- from the mosquito sprays in the bathroom, to the nightly lighting of the mosquito coils on the veranda (just in case)...they did everything to make the stay most enjoyable. Staff were always happy and willing to help/serve/chat
Free Canoe for Hotel Guest ”
- Location: A 25 mins walk from the public ferry terminal. A serene place which located slightly away from the crowd. But don't worry, there are many lamps at the hotel surroundings and the name plate is bright enough to be noticed at night. - Food: The food served at Wilson's is delicious and in satisfying portion. But we did explore other famous restaurants by bicycle such as Pearl Beach Lounge, Casa Vintage, Pituq Café etc. (Tips: Bring a torchlight. You'll need it when riding in the dark.) - Facilities: It provides free but limited canoe (in great condition and strongly recommend you to try this either in the morning for a longer journey or evening to watch sunset) and snorkeling equipments. Bicycle is available for rental for price at 50k for 24 hours (if I'm not mistaken). - Room: The room type of our choice is private villa for two. We're satisfied with the hygiene condition for the room and the private pool. One thing missing is a coffee table. We've to stacked our things on the TV set table and on the floor.
a perfect getaway”
if you're looking to just relax, unwind and be away from all the business of this island, then Wilsons is definitely your choice. the rooms were good and they have the best bed and pillow in comparison to the hundreds of hotels I've stayed in. However, some improvement need to be done in F&B and something has to be done to make dining by the sea more attractive. But that apart, everything was exactly what my wife and I were looking for
Dear Ravin, Thank you for your review here, very appreciate it, and I put this as a priority to be improved shortly. Hope this is not stopping you to come back at Wilsons Retreat in future. Please feel free to write us for any matter accordingly. Thank you Regards Kus
still great staff and good food. AC in high season was a bit weak in the one bedroom pool villa, so it got a bit hot. sadly also the coral in the gilis seems to have been hit hard by climate change. it was brilliant a couple of years back - lots of coral bleaching now.
Dear Michael, Thank you for staying with us for the second time. We do apologize for the AC problem, and we start to replace all of our Aircon step by step for each room. Hope this isnt stopping you to come back and stay with us. Thank you and have a great day regards Kus
Great value for money!”
Traveling for holiday we loved Wilsons, especially the friendly staff that made us feel at home! For us the location was fine - quite far away from the center of action on Gili T, however, if you are looking for proximity to restaurants and dive centers Wilsons is a bit of a walk or bike ride. Definitely definitely would come back!
We loved everything about our stay at Wilson's Retreat. The location is a bit far from the center of town (15 minute by bike, 30 minute walking) but this didn't bother us as the walk is nice and bike riding around the island is great! Being away from the center of town is also a plus as it is much quieter and better for relaxing. Wilson's has everything you need - beach front, great restaurant, pool, and very beautiful/serene grounds. The best part of all was the staff - they went out of their way to make us feel at home! Finally, we especially enjoyed our meal companion "Malang" a very sweet cat that stays around Wilson's and is always up for a morsel of something :) :) If you are a cat lover like we are you must also visit "Cat's of Gilis" a local charity set up to help the island cats. Great place, would definitely go back!
Dear Katherine, Thank you for sharing you experienced during your holiday at WIlson's Retreat, appreciate it. Its a pleasure for us to serve the best we have for all of our guests. Can't wait to meet and serve you on your next visiting to WIlsons Thank you Regards Kus
sanctuary for a peace of mind”
This place is so nice. The food and staff is great. We just love the signature wilson's steak and burger that we ate it almost everyday. The french fries is also nice for lite afternoon snack since it was freshly made. The room is perfect, especially the one with the private pool. They're just generous with space, u have lounge everywhere, inside, outside. Perfect place to spend lazy time reading or sleeping. The beach is also nice to lay around all day. And this place is so quiet since u're totally far away from the hustle n bustle of the gili trawangan crowds and night life. Stay here if u want to refresh and get a temporary peace of mind.
Dear Yvonne Thank you for sharing you experienced during your holiday at WIlson's Retreat, appreciate it. Its a pleasure for us to serve the best we have for all of our guests. Thank you Regards Kus
A cozy place in a quiet are od Gili T - Perfect!!”
Love the ambiance and the coziness of the place. The only thing to improve is the food, the local food and breakfast were tasteless, we were not inspired to dine at the hotel and chose to find other options.
Wilson’s retreat located in the northern side of Gili T. It is quiet at night and you can stay away from those nightlife noise and daytime religion songs. The breakfast was simple but great. Coffee is great too. If you are looking for a hotel with reasonable price, wilson’s Retreat is your choice.
Amazing place - will definitely be back”
Loved it so much here. Took the pool villa as the boys are 9 and 11. Great design and layout. Snorkelling was pretty amazing seeing a huge turtle within 50m. Super laid back. Loved the paradise with no cars or motorbikes. Will definitely come back
Very classy layout and furnishings with large guest rooms. Staff friendly and helpful but not intrusive. Decent restaurant with French angle to menu and many Indo dishes. Beachfront north on govt protected reef (no boats allowed)! Away from the madness & dross of main part of town. Generous shampoo for your bathroom amenities but BYO conditioner and lotion. Free flow filtered water. Aimed at more sedate guests but families seem to enjoy it. Party zone is elsewhere. Can rent bikes here. 6 minute ride to Turtle Point or just snorkel out front.
Great little hide away. The staff make the difference”
booked a week here and wished we stayed longer. breakfast was served whenever you wanted, by the beach or in the restaurant. the private pool villa was lovely. just the amenities could have been a bit more. resort is well maintained. we really loved the staff, special thanks to abby and nina. perfect representatives. location is quiet and if you are looking for the hustle and bustle gili T is known for you will need a bicycle to get down south (appr. 20 minutes). We are definitely returning!
Relaxed place on Trawangan”
Really beautiful place with great and spacious bungalows. It is on the north of island so the neighborhood is more quiet and relaxed. The rooms were clean, I was just surprised with open air shower and toilet. But I consider it as really good idea. Try also hotels restaurant, which serves one the best food i tried in Indonesia, ideal for romantic dinner by the beach. When high tide, you can go snorkel directly from the hotel. The only minus of our stay was dirty water in the pool.
Heaven on Earth (at least Gili T)”
The staff was SO nice and professional. The room was so nice, roomy and comfortable. The restaurant was fresh and staff again so attentive. They helped with horse carriage transportation and bookings. Please make sure you book your outbound travel in advance because the best companies fill up early.
Perfect ! Great location, staff, food, and villa !”
Gill trawangan's north part is for people looking for a quiet place, far from the festive south. Best sunsets (view of Bali). This hotel is a great, peaceful, clean place. The french chef is doing a wonderful cuisine, from breakfast to dinner, we loved it. With the corals, it's maybe not the best beach in front, but if you have Jelly sandals, you can go snorkeling and see wonders ! We had a wonderful time here, and I can't wait to go back
Modern hotel with great restaurant”
I really enjoyed my stay at Wilsons, it's a modern and clean hotel with good service, the rooms are not huge but designed with a lot of thought and soul. Here are a few things you may find useful before you book: 1. Wilsons located on the opposite side of the island from the village and speed boats. Considering the size of the island, it doesn't seem like a problem, but a 25 minute walk in the heat and partially off-road is not always pleasant. 2. The place is almost entirely deprived of the Internet. There is no mobile signal whatsoever, and hotel WiFi can be declared dead most of the time. 3. Wilsons restaurant is fantastic and is far superior to all the other places we tried, so stay, enjoy and don't bother searching around too much. 4. The beach by the hotel is great for diving and snorkeling, but awful for swimming. The sand only stretches 2-3 m. into the water and then turns into sharp coral rock. There is a sandy beach 20 walk min away. 5. There are only 30 horse taxis on the island (obviously no motorbikes or cars), at peak time it may take up to an hour for the horse to arrive. The verdict is, if you are traveling with the loved one and don't mind to be cut off the civilization for a few days, and also love snorkeling - that's the place for you. If you need to be online, prefer sandy beach for swimming and love to be in the village crowd - seek for alternatives.
