DAYS 1-4 / 1-6: GILI AIR
The Gili Islands consist of three islands: Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air. Located between Lombok and Bali, Gili Air is the closest to Lombok. The Gili islands have something to make every traveler happy. After travelling the world for 6 years, I’ve decided to call this eco-island home. The island is most famous because it’s crawling with marine life. Gili is the ideal place for relaxing, snorkelling, scuba diving and beach parties.
GILI AIR ISLAND
The perfect blend of tranquility, clean air, clear waters, exciting diving and diverse marine life!
As soon as you set foot on Gili Air, you’ll feel your body and soul fill up with an extreme sensation of relaxation, you’ll naturally slow down: it’s the magic of Gili Air. The island has plenty of things to do. It is surrounded by white sandy beaches, crystal clear blue water and pristine coral reefs. Ideal for snorkelling, scuba diving, surfing and any other water sport.
On this eco- island, no motorized vehicles are allowed. The island is travelable by foot in around one hour and a half, but you can choose to use a bicycle or a Gili taxi (horse and cart). Enjoy the peace and quiet of an island that is free of traffic. Allow yourself to have your spirit lifted and your body and soul nourished.
Gili Air is a fantastic place to dive; great visibility, diverse marine life, an abundance of turtles, knowledgeable instructors and high quality dive schools. Gili Air is located in the coral triangle, which is an area in the tropical marine waters, where the biodiversity underwater is the most developed in the world, 50% more species have been discovered here then in the Red Sea. You can see up to 15 turtles on a dive.
We recommend our guests dive with Blue Marine Dive, our preferred partner and a well establish school with great attention to detail and a fun atmosphere. The best thing about Blue Marine (apart from the staff) is that they regularly go to all of the best dive sites, Simon’s Reef, Deep Turbo, Deep Halik, Glen Nusa Wreck, Simon’s Wall which makes them unique on the island!

10 contemporary luxury villas – Balinese conception, built in the middle of Gili Air island. Slow is a concept, based on the slow spirit (slow cooking, slow moving, slow stretching), a unique way to get back sense of the essential value of life. Each room offers the same comfort: one or two bedroom villas with terrace, swimming pool, kitchenette and office space, comfortable sunbeds and a large lovely coconut garden. Particular care has been paid to the quality of the bedding with home stylist Valérie Barkowski adding her touch of originality in relaxing island colours.

One bedroom villa with private pool – some rooms can be split into twin beds.
Designed by the architect Christian Lechien, the spa at Slow Villas adds a wellness appetite to the villa complex, which is essentially designed for you to recharge and fully relax: three massage rooms, a bath for relaxation and a pilates/yoga studio.
The SlowSpa’s architecture is inspired by the round curves of the island, making you think of a bamboo cathedral. The central window adds air and light to the whole ensemble with gentle curves. The peaceful feeling and the silence are supporting the architecture that’s built around the natural elements, thus recalling Slow’s philosophy. or Slow Spa’s signature treatments we use products that are natural and alive, especially fresh aloe vera cultivated on-site.
