We need to preserve our power as much as possible. Power on Gili Trawangan and Gili Air is not in abundance and more of a privilege. When you are out for the day please assist in switching off your AC unit.
Actually, when both bathroom door & the sliding doors are open, a lovely breeze sweeps through.
There is an ashtray provided on the table on your decking, smoking inside the bedroom is strictly not permitted. The gardens are individually and totally private.
Scallywags Mango Retreat has internet in every room, and Wi-Fi in the restaurant area.
Please just ask for the network key.
We have an in-house massage therapist who is on call at normal reasonable times. Ask any staff member to book you a massage, the charge is IDR 150,000 per hour & will be charged to your room bill which is payable on check out.
Please read the instructions on top of the safety box for opening & closing. It is a very good idea to use the safety deposit boxes provided. Do not leave your valuables lying around when you are not in your room. Lock away your passports, travelers cheque’s, & valuables. Scallywags is a safe haven, however we cannot be held responsible for the loss of any items.
Please leave the safe doors open when departing so we can re-programme the entry numbers.
The hot water is solar powered. Please be aware that the hot water is very hot therefore it is important to turn the shower on to the left for cold first & then slowly move it to the right to introduce hot water for your desired temperature.
The resort has a desalination unit. We have even installed a separate potable drinking water service to your hand basins therefore you don’t have to use bottled water for brushing your teeth & filling the kettle. We are also producing our own crystal clear ice for your drinks and fresh fish display.
In an effort to preserve the environment if you don’t require your towels to be serviced place them on the towel rail, if you’d like fresh towels leave the towel on the floor.
Scallywags have a laundry service, place the required items in the black laundry bag provided & fill out the laundry form. Housekeeping will take the laundry when they come to clean your room.
There are 13 English speaking TV channels for you to choose from:
HBO, CINEMAX, STAR MOVIES, CNN, BBC WORLD, ALJEZEERA, AUSTRALIAN NETWORK, STAR SPORTS, ESPN, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, DISCOVERY, NICKELODEON, MTV
We have an extensive DVD library. Ask you pool bartender to show you the selection.
The question is often asked, “should I tip and when?” If you have enjoyed your stay with us and would like to leave a tip for the staff we suggest that, instead of singling one or two people out, leave your tip in an envelope for the Manager to distribute evenly amongst all of the staff.
Scallywags Organic Beach Club is obviously the best place to eat but there are others too!
Up the road there are many other warung fare style resraurants, all part of the adventure.
Scallywags’ items such as mugs, stubbie holders, beach towels, caps, etc. are for sale & can be bought at the pool bar.
THINGS TO DO –
The island is quite small, it only takes 1 1/2hrs to walk around or you can hire a bicycle which is a fun way to see the island. There are many small tracks leading into the island to the village. Take one of these & see where it leads you.
The snorkeling is second to none. Gili Air is renowned for its rare and unusual marine life.
You are guaranteed to see 2 types of turtles even when only snorkeling not far off the beach. Or take a glass bottom boat to snorkeling sites around the other islands.
The dive sites around the Gili Islands offer relatively easy diving and is a good place to learn with all PADI and SSI courses and daily diving trips are easily available. For fun dives there is something for everyone from gentle dives with little or no current to drift dives and deep dives.
Fishing is one of the highlight activities around the islands. Deep/bottom fishing remains the best on the north west of Gili Air island.
Lombok Golf Kosaido Country Club, the only international 18 holes championship course of Lombok. We can arrange a package to include transport to and from the golf course.
Scallywags Mango Retreat is located a leisurely 5 minutes stroll up the path from Bupatis Bungalows which is near the harbour No. 28
