Palm trees on white sandy beaches, surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters, if this sounds like your dream holiday then Gili Meno is the perfect place to plan your next luxury escape.
The three small coral islands not far off the coast of Lombok, collectively known as the Gilis truly are a vision of paradise. Of the three, Gili Meno is the smallest, quietest and has the best snorkeling, offering an idyllic place to escape to, unwind and immerse yourself in the stunning natural surroundings and the peace and tranquility that comes from no motorised vehicles and the laid back island vibe.
Nestled on an acre of pristine beachfront property, Villa Pulau Cinta is Gili Meno’s premier luxury boutique retreat. The only luxury villa right on the oceanfront, Villa Pulau Cinta offers 6 beautifully appointed suites, each exquisitely designed with its own unique identity. Each suite features high quality western finishes such as stunning marble flooring and combine traditional Indonesian elements, antiques, objets d’art and quality furnishings to create a vibe of relaxed coastal luxury.
For family gatherings, the entire property is available for exclusive use, comfortably accommodating up to 16 guests. Nothing has been overlooked in this remarkable property, a gorgeous kids room with four bunk beds connects to an adjoining room, creating the perfect family suite for younger kids.
Whilst each gorgeous suite offers abundant space and privacy the expansive communal areas provide the perfect place to reconnect with loved ones.
An expansive Joglo style pavilion with soaring ceilings houses the sitting room, a fully equipped kitchen and a bar. The interior has been beautifully appointed in a blend of traditional and modern furnishings reflecting the island lifestyle and seamlessly transitions to wide terraces, offering alfresco dining and lounge chairs that overlook the pool and beach just meters beyond.
Aside from the snorkeling, fishing and diving that is available right in front of the property, Villa Pulau Cinta has been carefully thought out to cater to everyone, with an abundance of guest amenities to indulge in.

For those seeking a culinary adventure, the in-house chefs are amazing creating culinary masterpieces using the freshest locally sourced ingredients and there are a myriad of local and western style dishes to select from each of the breakfast, lunch and dinner menus.
