I am Slow Private Pool Villas. I am as intimate and idyllic as the island on which I live. The minute you step off the ferry, a wave of pure relaxation will wash over you. The locals are kind and their smiles generous. You will find me tucked in a quiet corner of Gili Air, only a few bike pedals from the beach. You can either reach me by foot or treat yourself by taking one of the Cosimo — local horse & buggy. Enjoy breakfast in the comfort of your villa and jump in your private plunge pool before starting another beautiful day sunbathing or admiring the coral reef directly from the shore. If you listen closely you can hear the waves crashing in the distance as you fall asleep in the comfort of your private villa.
