On the island of Gili Air, luxury accommodation is represented by four-star designer villas.
If you want to choose a villa close to the beach, aim for options that are either closer to the eastern side of the island, as the depth is always sufficient for comfortable swimming on the east. Alternatively, consider the northern areas where the beaches are suitable for swimming during low tide when the shallow waters fill with clear warm water, and slightly farther away you can swim in coral gardens with fish.
If you choose a villa on the western side, you will undoubtedly find places with magnificent sunsets, but you will still need to go either to the east or north for swimming.
