Giliano Residence is located on Gili Trawangan, the largest of the 3 Gili Islands just off Lombok’s Northwestern coastline.
You can reach the island with a number of direct daily speedboat services that leave from Benoa harbor, Bali (crossing time approximately 2,5 hours) or Padang Bai harbor, Bali (crossing time approximately 1 hour 20 minutes).
Alternatively you could take the public ferry boat leaving from Padang Bai Harbor, Bali (crossing approximately 4 hours). This is a full day trip as you leave from Kuta /Seminyak area in Bali early in the morning and arrive on Gili Trawangan late in the afternoon.

Lombok also has a new international airport with flights from Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Surabaya and Bali. The flight from Bali is only 25 minutes and we can arrange a transfer to Gili Trawangan with our air conditioned car and speedboat. (price available on request). The drive takes about 1 hour 30 minutes along a scenic coastal route. The speed boat takes 10 minutes to cross from Lombok to Gili Trawangan.
If you want to make your own way to Gili Trawangan from the airport you can take a taxi to Bangsal, the little harbor village that services the Gili Islands. In Bangsal you can charter a boat to Gili Trawangan at an affordable price if you don’t want to wait until the public boat has got its 12 or so passengers on board before it leaves. It takes about 40 minutes on an outrigger boat from Bangsal to Gili Trawangan.
