Family trip to Lombok in June. Yes or No ?

Jump to last reply

Hi, my family and I plan to go on a 7 day holiday in June. I have a 7 year old son and a 5 year old daughter.

We are considering Lombok ... one of the gili's. We're looking at having a super relaxed holiday at the beach.

1 - Am i right the gili air is the best island for families with young kids ? Not too "party"ish ; not super quiet, too. Any recommendastions on places to stay ? Not more than USD 100 please for a place that will fit us. probably need 1 king and 1 single, at least.

2 - What's the best way to get to lombok to Gili Air ? we are flying in from singapore. silkair is too pricey for 4 of us at full price (!) so i'm thinking of getting to Bali/denpasar then...taking a boat ? As I have 2 young kids with me, i'd prefer not to take the small outriggers i used to take when I was single while island hopping in the Philippines and thailand !

3 - is 7 days way too much ? we're an active family and actually enjoy exploring, activities, etc. But we're having a full-on 1st quarter and expect the same for teh 2nd quarter so considering a pure chill out holiday

Thank you!
