Gilis reputed to be 'turtle capital of the world'. It is perfectly positioned to watch the sun rise over one volcano "Mount Rinjani" on mainland Lombok and the sun set over another volcano "Bali's majestic Mount Agung". This charming paradise is one of three coral-fringed islands. Gili Trawangan, Meno and Air are a tropical island getaway nestled amongst palm trees. As you sail east from Bali into the Lombok Straits, experience a natural habitat change crossing the imaginary 'Wallace Line". Here subtropical Asia meets Australasia. Come discover three of naturally preserved islands, untamed beaches and our warm gulf waters where it's easy to find a piece from heaven falling dawn to make your own. Three Gili's. Two Hours from Bali, a Thousand Miles from Care.

The tiny island of Gili Meno is the smallest and most peaceful of the three Gili Islands. With perfect beaches encompassing most of the island and lukewarm water full of snorkeling opportunities just off-shore, Gili Meno is the place to bring a good book and lose yourself for a while. Gili Meno offers a quiet respite for couples seeking seclusion or travelers who simply need a break from the road. The sounds of birds - there is a sanctuary in the center of the island - replaces the thump of dance music. Its own special tranquil style. Gili Meno has become semi-famous thanks to its inclusion in Elizabeth Gilbert's best-selling book, 'Eat, Pray, Love' in which she writes: "Gili Meno Island was my ultimate truth and reconciliation hearing. The island itself is tiny, pristine, sandy, blue water, palm trees. It's a perfect circle with a single path that goes around it, and you can walk the whole circumference in about an hour."
