We booked our Rinjani trek in Attas Travel office in Gili Meno. Mr. Atta is really nice, helpful and competet man, always trying to find the best solution for your. (He also provides a lot of others tours and transports – komodo, flores etc.) He arranged us transport from Gili Meno to Senaru on Lombok and also tranport after the trek to Kuta Bali.
EVERYTHING JUST GREAT AND WITHOUT PROBLEMS!
The trek was awsome, nice and experienced guide, good porterts, a lot of food and water. It was all perfectly organised. After the trek, we went to Senggigi to fast boat and then to Kuta bali in a shuttle bus provided by a fast boat company. We didn’t have to do almost anything on our own, everything was arranged by Mr. Atta.
So, if you have a possibility to do the Rinjani trek with Attas Travel, don’t hesitate and do it with Attas Travel!
We travelled to Gili Meno from Bali last summer and we had some troubles to buy flight ticket by ourselves from Europe. The owner of the Gili Meno hotel suggested asking to AttasTravel for that. We were not so convinced, as we always book everything directly via internet, but after a couple of e-mail exchanges, we had no doubts: the best option! Tina was super kind and super patient, she never made pressure on us, she gave us the best suggestions and we relied on her for everything, until horse, boat, taxi, boat excursions! Perfect flight, a driver waiting for us, two sailors waiting for us, she was even waiting for us in the Gili Meno harbor, then the horse, then boat trip just for 2 persons less expensive than 20 persons ones we have been offered, and the same 5 stars treatment to go back to Bali.
We have never waited a second, all persons were super nice and kind, we had some difficulties in phone connection with her, but she called the hotel, she took even care we had time to have a fast breakfast while leaving … And, I repeat, at super reasonable prices, even cheap!” For that reason, I am happy to have this occasion to say thanks a lot to Tina once again. I would recommend everybody to rely on her, you can feel safe, relaxed, never alone, never pushed … She is super professional and present when and where needed!
See you soon Tina!”
t took some time to get in touch with Atta’s travel agency, but when we did: wow! Although our plane from Jakarta was much delayed, it was not sure if we ever would get to Gili Meno, Tina kept our spirit high with some cheering and securing sms: whenever we were arriving she’d arrange for transport! We arrive late, without our suitcases, But the driver was waiting for us and took us to the place where the speed boat was waiting.
A magic tour under the starry sky to Gili Meno, where Atta was meeting with a bicycle and took us through the dark night to our bungalows at Ana’s Warung. They also kept our suitcases when they arrived the next day, until we left. Both Tina and Atta met us to say goodbye. Love the way these guys took care of everything and made us relax and enjoy! Thanks!!
We would highly recommend Attas Travel (Attas and Tina) to anyone wanting help travelling in Indonesia. They were both very helpful, friendly and professional and made out trip easy and pain free. They helped our party of 7 adults with our booking from Bali to Gili Meno and return via boat such an easy process. We were promptly picked up at our hotel in Bali by 2 vans and taken to the fast boat for Gili Meno. At the harbour all the details of our party already on hand, we were taken by boat (Gili Getaway also excellent) to Gili T where we were transferred to small boat by Attas and crew to take us to Meno. They even dropped us off right outside our accommodation and carried our bags ashore. The same was done for the return journey.
We know its easy to get boats to Gilis but the reasurance of knowing its all done before leaving home is so much easier when dealing with a group. Tina’s emails were all self explanitory and the whole trip was a breeze. We did not venture from Gili Meno so had no need for a tour anywhere on this trip but we will definitely be using them next year for tours of Lombok when we have more time. The costs were very reasonable also. Highly recommended… Thanks Attas Travel
Most people arrive into Bali. From there you can either take a flight to Lombok or a fast boat to Meno.
If flying into Lombok we can help you with your transfers from the airport to Meno. If you’re flying into Bali just drop us a line with your arrival details & we’ll tell you the best way to get here.
There is a clinic open 24 hrs in the center, the doctors mostly speak English and are very helpful with simple ailments such as ear infections, upset tummies, cuts and grazes. For more serious illness we recommend you go directly to one of the main hospitals in Mataram in Lombok or return to Bali. We can help you with this.
Unlike Bali which is Hindu the Gilis and Lombok are predominantly Muslim. You will find the local people to be very friendly, always ready with a smile and willing to help. Please show your respect for the local culture when away from the beaches by being appropriately dressed.
The Gili islands have a warm tropical climate year round with a dry and wet season. Dry season runs through May-October whilst the wet season is November-April. Most of our guests tend to come in the dry but don’t discount the wet season for your holiday, even though you may encounter strong rains, most days get a good amount of sunshine too plus hotels are much cheaper.
The hub of the island is situated on the east coast around the harbor where the boats drop you off. Accommodation until very recently was nearly all small simple home-stays run by local families. However more upmarket options are springing up now around the island so whatever your budget and requirements there is something for you.
We now have three ATMs on Gili Meno. We here at Attas Travel also change money and accept Visa/MasterCard payments.
