Getting to the Hotel from the Harbour

Horse Cart

Boats from Bali or Lombok will dock at the Gili Air Public Harbour which is approximately 300m from Hotel Ombak Paradise. From here you can either take an easy 10 minute walk or catch a cidomo (horse-cart) which will cost about Rp.100,000 (approx. US$10).

Although walking to the hotel is easy, we suggest taking a cidomo horse cart as the walk to our hotel may be a little challenging with luggage.

Kindness to Horses

Each cidomo (horse cart & its horse) is owned by its driver, and therefore as a Hotel we are unable to regulate this service.

What we can do, however, is be responsible when taking a cidomo ride. We ask guests to be mindful of not overloading the cidomo – we would suggest getting two if traveling in a family or group or with lots of luggage.

At Hotel Ombak Paradise we are concerned for the welfare of the horses on the island: we do suggest to do a brief check of the horse to make sure it is healthy and happy before embarking on your journey. A good sign is no ribs showing, no head to the ground (indicating tiredness) and no open wounds or sores. The horse should look alert (head up) and lean but muscular.

We hope that each driver will be inspired to take better care of their horses, if they notice that guests are choosing the happier, healthier looking horses.
