Gili Getaway

Welcome to Gili Getaway. The premier, daily fast boat service to Lombok and the Gili Islands.

While there are many fast boat services that will transport you from Bali to Lombok and the Gili Islands, Gili Getaway will always go the extra mile for you.

Our New 35 seater ‘Getaway II’ boat has 4 high powered 250hp engines and is able to transfer you to your island getaway considerably faster than any of our competitors. As a result of being that much faster we now offer a “holiday friendly” morning pick up time to get you to Serangan harbour (15 mins from the airport, Kuta, Legian) for your Gili Island speed boat transfer.

Gili Getaway is the only boat that travels direct from Gili Trawangan to Bali and Bali to Gili Trawangan.

Please note that we depart from South Bali so there is no need to worry about the arduous and sometimes frightening 1hr 15 min car ride to Padang Bai.

We also supply chilled towels, complimentary refreshments on board, restaurant facilities at check in, clean air conditioned cars, friendly knowledgeable drivers and sun baking roof access so that you can enjoy the beautiful archipelago sun during your island getaway to the Gili’s

The Lombok strait at times can be treacherous for any and all fast boat services operating between Bali and the Islands and on the rare occasion that our boats cannot run due to safety reasons, you can rest assured that Gili Getaway will try to make this inconvenience as painless as possible. We will help by either rescheduling your departure or try finding an alternative means of transport to Gili T, the Gili’s, Lombok and Bali as reasonably and efficiently as possible.

Our goal is to make your island transfer to the Gili’s and Lombok enjoyable and hassle free.

Gili Getaway offers FAMILY FRIENDLY FARES. Please ask for more details…


Boat Specification

Boat Specifications:

Gili Getaway at present has 3 custom built, Fiber Glass Deluxe fast boats servicing the beautiful Gili Islands.

Gili Getaway II is a 15m/45 foot custom built, fiberglass Deluxe Speed Boat  designed to handle the conditions and unpredictable waters of the Lombok Straits and has upped the standard for the service to Lombok. She has been equipped with four 250hp, 4 stroke Suzuki outboard motors.

35 people can comfortably travel on our spacious sunbrella cushioned seats that are 1.3m/4ft wide. Small travel bags can be stowed under the seats. The boat is fitted with personal Wi-Fi earphones to compliment the on-board TV’s showing movies during the trip. We also have a ‘state of the art’ GPS tracking system with monitor to show and log our route to and from Bali and allow the guests to see exactly where they are and how long is remaining of the journey.

The large bathroom consists of granite countertops, mirrors. Full sized ‘electric’ flushing toilet and an open window so now visiting a bathroom on a fast boat is a pleasure rather than an inconvenience. It is fresh water throughout.

Although we cannot boast that we are the only boat that provides a Sun deck for those outdoor types. We can certainly boast the most comfortable sun baking deck. Personal back supports with padded cushions for comfort and safety as well as individual storage units inside the back rests for phones, Kindles, music devices and other personal belongings.

We also have an outside covered seating area at the stern of the boat for those that want the feeling of the wind through their hair without the heat from the sun, as this is a covered area that is protected from the sea and elements..

‘International safety standards and safety equipment’ all combine to provide a high speed, ‘Deluxe Class’ transfer to and from The Gili’s, Lombok and Bali in the safest manner possible.

    After picking up any Gili Air or Lombok customers we then travel directly back to Bali from Gili Trawangan.

    Our 2nd boat GGIII may go via Gili Gede before travelling onto Trawangan and Gili Air etc sometimes. This should only add 20 minutes onto the usual trip but will give a glimpse of the NEW Kokomo Resort and the Beautiful island of Gili Gede in the South west of Lombok.

    A cheaper alternative is the “Island Hopper” which is a public boat service. This will cost 25,000rp per person one way. Unfortunately this service leaves Trawangan at 9am and 4pm, so could mean a little bit of waiting around before departure to Gili Meno.
    The staff in Bali or Trawangan, will be willing to help arrange this for you. Please let us know if Meno is your final destination when booking your transfer.

Also please be informed there will be no pick up / drop off service provided on the Gili Islands; and you can easily walk or get a horse cart to / from your hotel.

General: The passenger shall comply with the instructions of the company’s staff concerning all matters connected with the service and shall comply with any notice exhibited on the vessel. The company reserves the right to refuse to carry any passenger of goods without assigning reason.

This contract is subject to the laws of Indonesia, and may only be varied by agreement in writing between the company and the passenger. Verbal promises by booking agents of clerks will not be recognized by the company.

We do not give a refund if you do not arrive due to missing a boat, or the boats not running that day due to bad weather. This is an insurance claim and must be submitted to your insurance company. None of the fast boats guarantee they will run if the sea is too rough and the government harbor master has grounded all transportation via fast boat to the islands due to safety regulations.

In this event you will need to fly to Lombok or take a slower ferry. This may cost slightly more or less depending on your choice than your boat payment.  We advise you not to book an international departure flight out of Bali on the same day you leave Gili islands. This will avoid unnecessary stress should the fast boats be delayed or not operating due to extreme weather conditions across the Straights of Bali.
