My holiday: Gili Nanggu, Lombok. perfect island for peaceful retreat!

i'd like to share about this island that i went to last September..
the island's called Gili Nanggu, it's in Lombok, Indonesia.

i was quite surprised to see how tranquil and serene the island is.. it is NOTHING like Bali! just white sand, no tv (well there was one in the restaurant, but not in each cottage), stars, freshly captured seafood made to order, and it was so back to nature it was amazing! i went there with my family and we had a completely blissful holiday. actually we wanted to totally be cut off of technology, but we still got strong phone signals.. that may be good for many people, but yeah.

the island was so tranquil,,, there was no street vendors like in Bali and the island is about 15mins boat ride from the mainland Mataram. furthermore, if the fees are converted to Singaporean dollars, they are super cheap and i dare say that it was truly worth every cent i paid.

I just thought I'd like to share my experience with this forum because i know that it can be hard to find peaceful spots for retreat or yoga getaways, and i thought that this island may be the perfect getaway. I had a beach party (more like a dinner) on the last night of my stay, and the staff was so proactive! they set up torches to illuminate our dinner and our dinner was served on the beach. it was so beautiful!

the sands were white and fine... i went scuba diving the whole day! you could see small cute fish swimming near the beaches, yellow, blue, striped, black and white... gosh i dont know how to describe! and the corals were amazing.. i took pictures with blue starfish too.. haha. it was kinda weird touching a starfish. lol

u guys really should check it out, the owner is also so nice and helpful.. turns out they also had a turtle conservation program,, and every guest is entitled to release one turtle back into the sea on the day we checked out. we even got a certificate of participation for it. hahaha.

the downside is that you get cut off the real world, as in there's only one tv- in the restaurant. and there's a choice whether you wna stay in an airconditioned room or non-aircon. however, it wasnt a downside to me, coz that was the purpose of my holiday. haha

well thats my two cents, i dont wanna sound like im a paid promoter for the island. check out the website if you find it interesting:
www.gilinanggu.com

again, i am not paid or endorsed to do this by gili nanggu,, i just wanted to share with u guys my holiday experience. hope this has blessed you as much as it has blessed me.

for another reason, Lombok is better than Bali. I just visits the Three Gili. Gili Nanggu, Gili Trawangan and Gili Air
