Pearl Bar – Gili Trawangan

Pearl Bar at the Pearl hotel on Gili Trawangan is super cool.

It’s right on the water at the Southern end of the island and it’s hard to miss. The architecture is what grabbed me, the huge sweeping bamboo roof sits snug in the sand and comfortable against the palm trees. The supports inside are lashed together with an intricate weave of ropes and the bar sits in the sand, as do the tables and chairs. The waiters know their way round a cocktail shaker and they’ve got plenty of obscure bottles.

The strange thing is that I can’t find any reference to the place online. I’ve searched and searched but I can’t find any links or photos or anything…

Edit: Pearl Beach Lounge now has a very tidy little website, check it out here

Go at sunset, drink three cocktails; then, as the sun dips and the boys light the candles at your table order BBQ prawns and risotto.

Lean back into your chair and look out to the horizon.

It’s all good on Gili T.
