When a speed boat waiting for me at Malimbu, the weather was not very supportive. Strong winds accompanied by light rain was waiting. Speed boat parked in the dock occasionally loud crashing waves.
Buoy is ready for use. Engine speed boat is brought up getting towards the Vila Ombak on Gili Trawangan. The trip to Gili Trawangan only about 10 minutes, but if you are using a rented fishing boat in waters around, impress your trip very challenging because it takes about 1 hour.
Pounding waves of boat speed is very pronounced. Occasionally the speed boat helms man looked back to make sure her passengers survived. The way you will find lots of fishing boats, both looking for fish or leased some foreign tourists for diving. After a few minutes, you‘ll arrive right in front of Vila Ombak view point. You will be greeted with hospitality workers there. Welcome drink complete with a small towel to wipe his face.
Hotel Vila Ombak is the first international hotel in the island of Gili Trawangan. This hotel is truly first class hotel accommodation together with the natural beauty of this small tropical island. Hotel rooms were made unique, with the concept of huts or bungalows barn complete with bathrooms open behind him. Hotel Vila Ombak is the most luxurious hotels on the island gilis with a very strategic location so that visitors can enjoy the sunrise from behind Mount Rinjani.
Here you do not mess around with your cash. There are two ATM machines to take cash, because the “party“ is always present in this Gilis island. You also will not find the vehicle noise and air pollution. Here everything is done with the bike and Cidomo (traditional transportation equipment with horses). Rental bikes are found here, with rates ranged from 15 thousand dollars per hour to 80 thousand dollarsper day.
