How to book Gili Mansion?
You just found our #1 recommendation for best hostels in Gili Trawangan, Indonesia. Genuinely, Gili Mansion is the accommodation we recommend to our friends, family, and to you! You will like it!
Good to know: For many travelers Hostelworld is the #1 platform to book hostels. It is a trusted and safe reservation platform.
Living on a small island, it is hard to control and maintain rubbish.
The waster issue is a big problem in Gili T. New concepts were required to get control over the expanding problem.
‘Gili Eco Trust’ is the association on the island to tackle this issue.
Gili Mansion teamed up with Gili Eco Trust. They try to separate as much as they can with recyclable products. The team sends Gili Eco Trust the empty bottles. Eco Trust upcycles these bottles and turns them into glass lamp shades or bricks.
Furthermore, Gili Mansion is one of the hosts for ‘Debris Free Fridays’ – where they gather volunteers in cleaning out the roads and beaches from rubbish.
During our visit, we also participated and helped cleaning up the beautiful beaches around the island.
The hostel provides a water-refill station, both in our fresh water taps and water gallons. This way guest can reduce their use of plastic bottles.
The recent upgrade to Eco-friendly lifestyle has been changing the supplier for certain products.
Instead of single plastic wrapped tissues and small containers, they go without any wrapping paper and bigger containers.
The staff separate the correct products to be recycled.
And you can participate as well:
You can get a refund when recycling your plastic and glass bottles in Gili.
Last but not least, when guests leave unwanted clothing or products, they donate these items to “Pituq Cafe” who donates them to a charity in Gili Islands.
FYI Pituq Cafe is an outstanding café with creamy coffee and super yummy food. It’s just around the corner, ask the staff how to get there.
Also next to Gili Mansion you have the beach, with many activities as paragliding.
Ever tried paragliding over turquoise waters?
2. Detail is the key
Let us talk about the interior design and theme.
The hostel’s theme is a mansion on a tropical Island.
It comes with white painted bricks, medieval lights and a watch tower with a 360 degree view of the island.
One would enter the ultimate hangout space to bring all backpackers together through a huge wooden gate.
With the pool in the middle, sun beds, bean bags and tables surrounding it, it is easy to connect and get to know everyone.
The staff is from all over, Lombok (Gili Islands belong to Lombok, the island next to Bali) and the managers are from all over Europe.
Most of the staff commute back and forth to the island, but a few have accommodation with the hostel.
The staff always greeted us with a smile.
The reception team has all the knowledge of the island, which will help with any inquires you may have.
The bar team is keen on making guests tasty drinks and always up for a laugh. The restaurant will cook you up a treat!
Overall, the guys and girls at Gili Mansion and Castle will make you feel like you’re part of the family.
