at Aaliku Bungalows aim to offer our
guests the facilities you would find in any
top end villa or hotel but within a friendly
and relaxed atmosphere of a small family run
business. Aaliku is owned by an English/Indonesian
couple therefore combining the local knowledge
of the island coupled with western standards.
Our facilities include:
• Air Con or fan rooms
• Fresh Water
• WiFi Internet Access
• Laundry Service
• Small fridge in Rooms 5 and 6
• Extra mattresses
• T.V and D.V.D players in Garden Room 1, Bungalow and Family Room
Beginning with just 1 bungalow in 2006 we
have expanded Aaliku to 6
spacious rooms in total, each with their own
special characters set amongst beautiful gardens.
The bungalows have been designed using the
best quality materials that Lombok has to
offer including teak wood for the interior,
stone basins and marble flooring. Sumptuous
cushions with shades that vary from room to
room combined with neutral wall colours create
a soft, classic look whilst items such as
bedside lamps contribute to making each room
unique in its own way.
Aaliku is superbly located, just metres
away from the harbor and not far from the
central strip where the dive shops and restaurants
can be found. Situated a little behind the
beachfront Aaliku enjoys peace and
quiet without having to sacrifice distance
to get to the main hub.
As the main water source on Gili Trawangan
is salt water this results in much of the
accommodation offering only salt water showers.
Whilst this can be endured for a night or
two you soon start to feel ‘sticky’ and feel
the need for a ‘real’ shower. This is why
one of Aaliku’s benefits is being
able to offer fresh water that is piped in
from Lombok so you are able to feel properly
clean throughout the duration of your stay
We pride ourselves on being able to offer
up to date information about the island from
organising a glass bottom boat to suggesting
the best restaurant to enjoy fresh fish.
On your arrival we will collect you from the
harbour and bring you the short distance to
Aaliku where you can enjoy a welcome
drink whilst you settle in and unpack.
here to find out What's On
Gili Trawangan to explore...
We are proud to form an alliance with Gili
Eco Trust to conserve and preserve the natural
beauty that has made Gili Trawangan famous.
One of our aims is to make Trawangan a plastic
bag free island. Unfortunately Indonesia has
a love affair with all things plastic and
we would like to reduce the amount of plastic
bags that come onto the island. Please help
us by using the reusable bags that are placed
in your rooms when you buy snacks or bottles
of water. If there is no reusable bag in the
room please ask our staff or use one of your
own bags when out shopping.
If you do have any unused plastic bags we
are happy to keep them as long as they are
• WET OR SMELLY
We can pass these on to Gili Eco Trust who
donates them to a project on Bali that uses
them to make notebook covers and wallets.
Many tourists are concerned by the sight of
the horses that are used to pull the cidomos.
Gili Eco Trust has listened to these concerns
and taken action to improve their welfare.
Firstly there is a Horse Clinic available
twice a month where the drivers can take their
horses if they are sick. Secondly various
restaurants, dive shops and hotels have opted
to place fresh water drinking troughs for
horses to stop and drink during the heat of
There is a new initiative that plans to sort
the rubbish into plastic, metal and organic.
We have signed up as one of many hotels to
put three bins in our premises where the rubbish
will be sorted and collected and all recyclable
items will be put on the fast boat to Bali
and recycled there. Please help us keep control
of our rubbish by putting any rubbish you
have in the correct bin.
We have a donation box in our Reception where
you can contribute as much or as little as
you wish to Gili Eco Trust. If would like
to purchase anything in particular for the
island such as mooring buoys or water troughs
for the horses then this is also possible.
The proceeds will go straight to the Gili
Eco Trust office which is located at Big Bubble
Dive Shop once a month. We want guests to
keep coming back to Trawangan. By investing
in the education of the locals and reducing
the amount of litter on the island we believe
that we can maintain the beauty of
this paradise island.
