Pesona Beach Resort & Spa

Certificate of Excellence
Situated a short 3-minute walk south of the jetty in the lively central district of Gili Trawangan, Pesona Beach Resort & Spa is an ideal place for couples and friends who are looking to chill out, but also be close to the action Gili T is famous for. Our rooms are thoughtfully furnished with quality in mind and all have en-suite bathrooms and aircon. We recently opened poolside rooms that feature reclaimed teak furniture and sliding doors that open up directly on to our new 2nd pool and tropical garden. This private area is also where top-rated Azure Spa at Pesona Resort is located. For guests looking for a bit of adventure, Dive Central Gili, our PADI 5-star scuba diving center is ready to take certified divers or those wanting to explore the underwater world for the first time on 3 daily dives. Our restaurant and bar, famous for its vibrant Indian food, is open from 07:30 to 01:00 and also features healthy international cuisine, imported spirits, wine, and exotic sheesha pipes.

I stayed at the Pesona recently. The room was ok. The AC worked fine. The bed was large for two. I stayed on a second floor room. The room had no refrigerator, no hot water maker and no room safe. They give you a choice of three breakfast options. The employees were friendly

Thank you, Gringo, for taking the time to review us. I apologize the staff failed to show you the safe in your room located in the wardrobe. That's quite embarrassing. It is true, only 2 of our rooms have in-room refrigerators, and we have chosen not to offer hot water kettles after a few incidents with cooking in the rooms. I have recently been looking into having coffee and tea stations located communally for our in-house guests so your input is very valuable. The Classic Room you stayed in is currently our most basic option, however, we have strived to put the same amenities throughout the resort; King Koil mattresses, high-quality linens, and spa quality shampoo, conditioner and body wash, all of the cable TV options available, etc. The Poolside King Rooms looking over our 2nd swimming pool and garden area are a bit more expensive but are larger and newly constructed, finished in February 2018. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday in Indonesia. Please think of us again on your next holiday in Gili Trawangan. Best, Jen Resort Manager

The room was newly renovated and beautifully decorated. All the staff made us feel welcome.
We used the spa to get a lovely manicure and had a wonderful view over the ocean. I couldn’t recommend it enough.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Pesona is proud to be the original sheesha bar on the island and even with all the cosmetic changes over the years, we continue to use only the finest imported ingredients and the best coal available in Indonesia. We hope you think of us again on your next holiday in Gili Trawangan- we now offer a special "Power Hour" on Thursdays from 5:30-6:30 that includes buy one get one free on our cocktails and domestic beers. Best, Jen Resort Manager

Hie, I will b visiting Gili n accommodating at persona.. on the 31 Aug 2018 - 3rd Sept 2018 . I would like to get some real information regarding the current situation 1. Will ur hotel b functioning as per normal ? 2. Will the night life ..such as the clubs or bars be open at the island? 3. Will the boat party continuing as per normal ? 4. Are we stilll able to go for snorkeling? 5. By when willl Gili be open to the public? Looking forward for ur reply Thank you n hope to see u all soon
Hello, Harnik. I apologize for the late reply. Currently the resort is closed for cleaning and resupplying. The buildings were checked by our builder and all but 2 of the rooms are ready for guests. We have decided to postpone our reopening until the 1st of September to make sure all aspects of the resort are fully operational including the restaurant, spa, and dive center. The island is currently open to tourists and some fast boats have begun their routes on the 18th of August. I am not sure about the party boat, I suggest you contact them directly, but snorkeling is awesome right now. There are already some restaurants open and I believe more will be opening this week. It is our hope that the island will be back to normal in early September. If you have specific questions about your booking, please write us an email. Kind regards, Jen

hi there two questions - 1. do you arrange transfer from Gili Gede 2. Which rooms are better? the deluxe bungalows or the deluxe rooms?
Hi Goro, There is a fastboat service from Gili Gede to Gili Trawangan or you have the option of a car transfer over land in Lombok and a shorter speedboat ride to Gili Trawangan. We are happy to help you with transfers through our affiliate company, EasyGili Transfers. You are welcome to contact us directly through email or book directly on the EasyGili Transfers website. The deluxe rooms are newer with all modern amenities, but the chief difference is the deluxe bungalows have a balcony. Please send us an email from our website if you have any further questions. We look forward to welcoming you to Gili Trawangan and Pesona Beach Resort & Spa.
