The place is kind of expensive for a basic lodge close to the beach, there are better options around for the same price. The staff doesn't speak much english, so is complicated communicate with them, ask for rice and get noodles, and so on. The manager is not present all the time, so if you have a problem and he...

Ordered lunch for a family of 5 at their outlet in Gilli T and was not impressed at all. We had 2 fried rice and 2 kebabs which took almost 40 minutes to arrive. We drank beers while waiting for the food and Everytime we tried to get the attention of the waiters to order they would look in out...

Had a wonderful stay at Balenta for 5 nights- 3 adults and one child. Nice and quiet, spotlessly clean, grounds neat and tidy with a team of helpful staff. Spectacular sunsets in the evening and Great snorkelling just in front of bungalows. Highly recommended.

We are a couple that travels & works every day, internet therefore is a must. Coming here after having had a bad experience in one of the neighboring places, we wanted to make sure to have internet throughout our stay. As commonly promised around the island, it was also promised here. We checked with other guests and they mentioned "once...

We enjoyed a lot the calm in this hotel, the staff is nice, the bungalows roomy and almost perfectly clean. The restaurant on the beach is simply great! But the food is a bit basic though. Thanks to the staff!

We had lunch in Balenta cafe, in north-west Gili Meno. It offers various menu from traditional to western food. We tried traditional ones: Kelak Kuning (fish soup, sour and spicy), Nasi Campur Ayam and Plecing Kangkung. All of them are tasteful, light and refreshing for a sunny day. The price is average (not that expensive considering its location). The staffs...

We didn't stay in the bungalows but balenta was out favourite lunch spot on the island. Great food at great prices...it as a hit for our two children too with lots of variety and beautiful flavours. The bungalows are a perfect location to explore Gili T.

This was our first trip to the Gili's and will definitely not be our last! Balenta Bungalows gave us the perfect getaway we needed after a busy week in Bali. The Bungalow we stayed in was comfortable if a little tired in places. The netting is a nice touch but needed replacing as it was yellowing and somewhat dirty looking....

We stayed four night in Balenta Bungalows in Gili Meno in a bungalow with a sea view. The bungalow was nice and clean and had a mosquito net and AC. Their restaurant was very good with excellent local foods but also western dishes. Food was also cheap. They had lots of sunbeds from which it was great to watch sunset...

For Gili Meno, the most isolated island today...(things change so rapidly on Gili islands), this is a nice place with lovely bungalows and ideally located on the sunset beach. A little bit far away from the center (10-15 min biking). The good price is 350k-450K Rp as we have minimum service. 1 Old towel/person, not changed during your stay. No...
