Pondok Santi Estate 

A tropical retreat with surf

This secluded beachfront escape promises refined relaxation on Gili Trawangan’s southern tip.

Pondok Santi feels like a scene plucked straight from a magazine. It’s a stylish escape of coconut palms, private white sands and a slick ocean-view beach club. Set in a lush green 19-acre estate, you’ll find 18 luxury alang-alang-roofed bungalows alongside plenty of surfboards and snorkelling gear.

Why we love Pondok Santi Estate

  • Upgrade to a Private Pool Bungalow for luxury touches and tropical seclusion.

  • Island-hopping trips and private cruises aboard the hotel’s hand-built outrigger.

  • Pondok’s gardeners are always ready to handpick you a coconut.

  • Travelling by horse-drawn ‘cimodo’ cart feels thoroughly nostalgic on this car-free island.

High above the coconut groves, Santi Beach is the hotel's signature restaurant. Here you can enjoy a fusion-style cuisine, specialising in delicious Indonesian and western flavours. The Santi Beach Bar is a perfect pre-or-post dinner stop; watch the sun set with an exotic cocktail in hand while enjoying views that reach all the way across to the island of Lombok.
