Hi, almost ready to fly in to Bali and then go on to the Gilis. Appreciate any advice on getting there from Bali, places to stay (under Rp150k) and eat . Also making my way back to Senggigi and on to Kuta Lombok and then back to Bali.
Some recent experiences would be really helpful thanks.
For Kuta Lombok check out this forum http://groups.msn.com/LombokLovers created by an English woman Gemma who lives there with her Balinese husband and child.
They have their own homestay called Mimpimanis which is really beautiful- I stayed there for 5 days in November last year.
Some great places to visit down there that way.
If you check out www.balitravelforum.com and go into the archives with Kuta Lombok or mimpimanis you should find some other info' written by travellers who have stayed there.
There used to be an Aussie guy Trevor who had written some fantastic advice about Gilis, but I think the site he posted on has closed Tales of Asia.
I will try to find out about it for you. Off to work now.
