If you’re tired of the overcrowded beaches in Bali, and are looking for somewhere near with similar culture, yet adorned with the clearest blue sea and untrodden idyllic white sand beaches, Gili islands in Lombok might be your answer.

But untouched beaches also comes with a heavy price tags attached to those beautiful and luxurious beach resorts.

It’s a fact that resorts on Gili islands can be expensive, with the average nightly rate at some of the big chain hotels running at hundreds of dollars. When you do find one within your budget, there’s usually a caveat — the beach is more than 20 minutes away.

Here, we’ve collected some of the rare gems in the Gilis – nice, decent resorts that boast beautiful views of the ocean, are right on the beach itself, and cost less than USD$100 a night!

Note: The prices reflected below are the low season rates, and they exclude tax and service charges. Accommodation rates often change with room availability, and low or high seasons. We recommend double checking for the final prices before confirming your booking.
