Gazebo Meno Hotel Hotels in Gili Meno Lombok

Gili Meno is the middle island of the Gili Islands located just of the north west coast of Lombok as with the other Gili islands it is small and in fact this Gili is the very smallest of all three of the Gili islands. Meno Island is without doubt the most peaceful and unchanged island of the three and the easiest to catch boats you to the other islands in order to explore and island hop in this tropical island paradise. There are not dogs on Gili Meno and there are also no proper roads and no motorized vehicles of any kind. The reason to come and stay in a hotel in Gili Meno is to escape reality and spend some time on a tiny tropical in the middle of the ocean with no crowds and no cars. After saying this there are a small number of luxury hotels in Gili Meno and villas that are usually cheaper then on Gili Trawangan, the largest and most popular of all of the Gili Islands, so there is no shortage of luxury when you are in your resort, but when outside the resort there is nothing but paradise that is yours to explore.
You may have heard rumors of the large amount of mosquitoes on the Gili Meno, in the recent years many measure have been taken to reduce this but true to this day and as with any tropical country, the best time to visit is in the dry season. The humidity is slightly higher than on the other two islands so it is important to keep well hydrated and to bring good mosquito repellent that preferably includes the compound ‘DEET’ that is the only true chemical that almost guarantees that you will not get bitten when using it effectively. There is however in this slightly more humid climate an amazing bird sanctuary that has been set up by an Australian women who has collected rare and endangered birds from across Indonesia and is breeding and protecting them on Meno, this is a special sight to behold as you can see some wondrous creatures you would never had imagined living in their natural setting.
Getting to Gili Meno can be slightly more difficult than getting to the more popular of the two islands Gili Trawangan and Gili Air due there often being a shortage of people going. Sometimes the boat drivers will only go to Gili Meno if there are a minimum of 20 people on board so sometimes it can be worth getting some people together who want to go. Failing this you will have to charter the boat, which will be a little more expensive, but competition for boat rides is fairly competitive so ask around for the best price. The other way to go is to catch either the morning or afternoon boat to Gili Trawangan or Gili Air and then get a boat from there to this small island, this can be the easiest and cheapest way if boat charter is too steep and includes the added bonus of visiting another island. This small extra effort is a small price to pay for the tranquility and seclusion in a hotel in Gili Meno.
