The short boat trip from the small harbor is breathtaking in the sun. Gili Gede is truly a paradise from a far..and I felt like I could stay forever. Via Vacare is located absolutely beautifully overlooking the sea, a step from the private and secluded white sandy beach. The bungalows are more than spacious. With glass doors instead of windows you can open up the whole side to the sea, if you want to sleep "in the open" but still under the roof. And the staff is amazingly welcoming, warm and helpful. Unfortunately this is where it ends. This time of the year the beach is so full with garbage floating in from Jakarta after the new year. They have definitely tried to clean up closest to the bungalows, but it still didn't take away my sadness of looking at the rest of the beach. So if you want to swim, go to the other side of the island. Snorkeling you can do anywhere, especially if you go with the via vacare boat. It must be a fantastic experience to stay here during the high season. Even if the resort is old it's worth coming here. Absolute serenity and for this price,even though it's old and worn, the charm remains. Its my closest to paradise minus the litter.. And the litter is our responsibility, each and every one of us.
It should be noted that the showers has not been working here for a long time. However, it does have a certain charm to pour fresh sweet water from a bucket and wash yourself. Really. No Wi-Fi. But it's not even 2 minutes to the neighbors, Hoola Hoop, a wonderful restaurant with accommodation. Bring a flashlight because you are going to walk this very steep pathway many times. There are no bicykles to rent on the island. The best beach for swimming is on the other side of the island. Less litter over there, what I saw. But the charm is on this side...
It is the perfect place to escape. Just be there, enjoy sun and hammock, do some snorkeling or ask the hotel staff for a short (or even day) trip by boat to Gili Layar or other islands for more snorkeling. Or just stay at the accommodation and enjoy the sea breeze, the amazing sea view from all of the spacious and spotless clean bungalows or the sun set. The biggest stress for you could be to do nothing at all. We decided to take the offered all inclusive package (lunch, dinner, tea, coffee, snorkeling gear, ...) which was a good choice, not only because there were not so many restaurants nearby (there are some at the other ressorts/hotels), but especially because of the very tasty food. You can even help to prepare the food if you want to. Everyone and everything is quite chilled and relaxed. Many thanks to everyone at the staff team!!! We had the best time on Bali and Lombok at Via Vacare!
The days were too short and we had only three nigths there:-)
Loved staying at this magical place full of tranquility and peace. Staying at Via Vacere didn't feel like staying in a hotel more likely with family. The staff helped us with all the organization of our trip according to your desires. When we were snorkeling, they even came with us and took care of our little baby, went on walks through the village with us and cooked the spicy Indonesian food we enjoy. We had the most beautiful time! Thank you so much to everyone!
Eating together while enjoying the perfect view of the sunset, perfect company of the crew which are very informal. The food was excellent, everyday a different breakfast, lunch ánd diner (same cooked for all the guests, mostly delicious Indonesian traditional food, having diner around one table). Ask for the packagedeal! (Lunch, diner, snorkel gear, use of small paddle boat) I can image lots of people book an extra night, like we did.
Unfortunately, In low season the activities to do: snorkeling, visit local market, yoga class where (sometimes) unavailable due to a lack of personnel/time. Further no limitations
Gili Gede is the most tranquil island we’ve visited on our holiday. even though tourism is expanding, via vacare still manages to keep everything on the down low. the bungalows were a dream, as was the staff (shout out to you Putu!) and the delicious communal dinners! Can recommend for anyone who wants a couple of simple days just enjoying not being home.
might not be the perfect island if you’re looking for a beach-style getaway - water everywhere was rather shallow with lots of corals, making it great for a quick snorkel though!
