Welcome to Gili Meno

Most accommodation is strung out along the east coast, near the most picturesque beach. Inland you’ll find scattered homesteads, coconut plantations and a salty lake. The once-lonely west coast is seeing some high-profile development, including an enormous beachside condo project called Bask (www.baskgilimeno.com) that is slated to have over 85 villas when it opens in 2020. It’s got some powerful Australian backers and a high-profile pitchman, ex-Baywatch star David Hasselhoff (aka ‘The Hoff’). The effect of this huge resort on little Gili Meno is likely to be profound.

Boat Transfer from Bali to Gili Islands

Gili islands have become one of the best and most popular tourist destinations in Indonesia over the last years. Each island has several small resorts, usually consisting of a collection of huts for tourists, a small pool, and restaurant. Automobiles and motorized traffic are prohibited on the islands by local ordinance, so the preferred method of transportation is by foot and bicycle or the horse-drawn carriage. Diving in and around the Gilis island is also popular due to the abundance of marine life and attractive coral formations. The fast-boat transfer to the Gili islands takes place twice a day from Bali, once in the morning and once in the afternoon, both from the Padang Bai Harbour. Your transfer includes shuttle pickup and drop-off in Ubud, Kuta, Seminyak, Jimbaran, Legian, Canggu, Denpasar, and Sanur roughly 2.5 to 3.5 hours before the boat departs.
