Review : Mango Dive - Gili Trawangan

Thanks to Mba Antie, I have an opportunity to buy Garuda tickets in very low price. Yess, she bought it for me (us, actually) during the last year Garuda Travel Fair. I got ticket to Lombok in a very bargain price : IDR 900,000 Return!

WOW!
Even an actual 1-way ticket to Lombok is way more expensive, LOL!

Me and my husband decided to stay at a very unsual place. Not a hotel (like what we used to book), but more like a guest-house. We decided to look for our place-to-stay in AirBNB.com. My friend, Inok, recommended the site since she found a place to stay during her honeymoon at AirBNB.com.

 
I spent my breakfast time here - eating scrambled eggs in front of the beach!
Fabi ayyi aalaa irabbikumaa tuqaddzibaan!

we stay at the hammock on the last day!


The place where I stayed called Lumbung. I stayed in Lumbung #7!
I actually got a very bargain price for this place, since I got $25 discount from AirBNB application, and an upgrade compliment from Georg, the owner to stay at Lumbung instead of my booked room, the Standard one. 



The room is consist of 1 partially open bathroom - will share the picture later - downstairs, and 1 180x180 bed. No TV, no Wardrobe. Only 2 tables and 2 night-tables beside our bed. 

At first we worry about the TV things, but when we got there it was really fun that we really forget about the no-TV-condition at all. Errrr... maybe because MangoDive really provide us with a very fast wifi LOL. 

MangoDive is quite far to the noisy area, the central of Gili. The nearest bar is Egoiste, and its around 5-minutes-walking-distance from Mango Dive. If you really love the night life of Gili, maybe you shouldn't pick this place because the road from the central Gili to Mango Dive is too dark at night. But that's OK, since you only have to walk 5-10 minutes to reach MangoDive from central Gili. 

Overall, I really love this place!
Thanks to George & MangoDive team!!!
