Part of a perfect island holiday means finding the perfect island resort to stay at. After checking out their website, Le Pirate beach club was sort of a no brainer for us when choosing accomodation on the Gili Islands. This amazing and affordable resort is situated a stones throw away from the beach and just as the website promised, provided us with a true island experience. Think picture perfect little turqoise and white houses called 'sweet boxes' or 'beach boxes', each with a hammock on your balcony for the ultimate downtime. Granted, it is called a box for a reason. The rooms are super tiny and can basically only fit the bed and your suitcase, but what does it matter if you're spending each day out in the sun anyway! Surprisingly, I found the best part to be the open air bathrooms which are located at the back of each beach box. Don't worry - you have complete privacy and taking a shower underneath the blue sky is definitely something to write home about. Some more pics of our island days below! SS
