Island hopping…yes, please! If you haven’t been to Gili Air, you’ll want to check this place out.Scallywags Mango Retreat & Restaurant, most known for their hotel and eatery on the infamous party island of Gili Tranwangan, has a sister property on this quiet little isle offering a perfect off-the-beaten track family getaway. Here you will find no cars, no motorbikes and no motorized transport of any kind (other than boats).
Relax under beach umbrellas and tents listening to cool tunes while sipping on a delicious cappuccino with a dollop of caramel gelato. There are only six rooms at the inland retreat and although small, they don’t sacrifice the creature comforts. Unlike most of the other accommodation on the island, Scallywags offers fresh water showers, air-conditioning, a swimming pool, mini-bar and television for kiddies who just can’t live without the tube. After dark, Scallywags Restaurant is one of the most sought after dining venues famous for its’ inventive cuisine, fresh fish and super-friendly staff.
