The 5 Hotel in Gili Trawangan provides adults-only accommodation with a garden and a terrace. The staff really went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed the stay. They were really friendly.
Not open anymore due to the earthquake, very sad as last time we visited Gilli T this was a delight! Not sure if this has moved, would love to see more conservation efforts on the Island due to the growing amount of tourists.
Locals are so kind, accommodating and friendly. I swam everyday for 5 days with turtles here and all for free. The locals give you advice on where to swim and will come in the sea with you to point out where the turtles. One local told me where to swim with the most wonderful fish here too. A must if you love nature and enjoy interacting with the locals as i has the very best of times here. I had dinner on the beach with the wonderful lads from the local market stalls. Do chat with them as they are great fun and you will learn so much about the Indonesian culture. All there items are a good price but do still barter as that’s great fun too.
This is a pretty awful place for the turtles, very small tanks with very shallow water for the young turtles who fight a lot with one another and some are pretty badly hurt. Just a way for locals to sell trips to people. Should be closed down to be honest it was awful to see.
Just a man in a hut with some baby turtles in water. Very little info there if any, just some donation boxes. Mainly a hot point for salesman to try and sell you snorkelling trips to see other larger turtles. Honestly save the money snorkel off the beach where they are very common.
I think it's awesome they don't release the turtles straight after hatching to increase the survival rate but I heard stories of them letting tourists pay $20 or so to release one. I then saw a baby turtle washed up on the beach absolutely exhausted as I assume it was released early and then had to be taken back to the tanks. Don't do it they aren't ready to go into the big bad world. Not sure if the conservation program has any official marine biologists or if it's just the local guys.
Is totally a business, there isn't any control and the amount of turtles raised and released is out of any normal. Is needed just a bit of snorkeling to realize how unbalanced is the underwater world around.
