Gili Lagoon Residence: As the only one-of-its-kind in the whole resort this residence is the 'bee's knees' located at the end of their western facing jetty providing absolute seclusion and privacy. Enjoy rooftop views out to sea, sleep under the stars, and kick back in your private water hammock.


Villa Suite: This suite is suitable for two adults and two children and features lounge beds in the living area that can be converted into sofa beds. Larger families should consider the Family Villa which is more spacious and features private areas. Note, all villas are overwater, and children should be aided at all times.


The Private Reserve: The ultimate luxury island experience starts right here with a boat ride across the lagoon. This four-bedroom overwater villa, in true Robinson Crusoe style, can only be accessed by boat and boasts its own cinema, gym, and… wait for it… water slide into the lagoon. Get ready to kick back and relax to the max.
