Big Buble is Gili Trawangan Bungalows, the largest and most popular island of the three Gili Islands in Lombok. It is well known as a party island, but there are plenty of chances to “get away from it all” and truly experience this chilled out island in the sun.
Long gone are the days of backpackers being the only tourists on the islands, and the businesses have moved up market. Families and holiday makers are now frequently found relaxing in the numerous beach restaurants and bars, or around the various swimming pools on the island.
This has been Gili Trawangan’s success – the island has managed to encourage new visitors to the island, while still being a firm favourite with travelers. Local businesses thrive alongside the western owned companies, so there is something to suit all budgets and tastes.
Big Bubble Dive and Bungalows ownership in June 2004 by new British. The shop has been expanded and renovated to include a new dive shop, equipment and compressor room, swimming pool, bar, terrace, bungalows and beach volleyball court.
Whilst maintaining the famous laid back atmosphere, and friendly personal service, Big Bubble now boasts first class facilities for divers and tourists alike.
Nestled amongst beautiful gardens, Big Bubble has seven spacious bungalows designed specifically with weary travelers in mind. They are the perfect place to relax - with hammocks and daybeds on private terraces, surrounded by blossoming Frangipani and Bougainvillea. The rooms are large and all have custom built wooden beds, made on site by carpenters from Lombok. There are extra beds available for those travelling in a group or with children. We can offer a choice of Air Conditioned or Fan rooms.
We also have five additional rooms which cater to those on a smaller budget but who still want to experience our famous hospitality. These clean and simple rooms can sleep up to four people and still afford guests a relaxing stay.
At Big Bubble the dive boat leaves twice a day at 10am and 2pm - NIGHT DIVES are also available. Most of our dive sites are only 10 – 20 minutes away from the shop, meaning you get to spend your time diving rather than travelling. There is also oxygen, an emergency first aid kit, fresh water and telephones onboard.
Big Bubble is famous for its experienced guides and small groups. There is a maximum of four divers to every guide – making your dive feel more relaxed and organised. It doesn’t matter whether you’re very experienced or just a beginner; the staff at Big Bubble will plan the best dive for your level and help you to gain confidence with your diving.
Diving around the Gili’s usually means a DRIFT dive. Experienced boat captains pick up buddy teams at the end of each dive. At Big Bubble there are NO maximum dive times – it just depends on deco-times and how good you and your buddy are with air – ensuring you get to see the very best of every dive site.
There is a huge variety of dive site topography including walls, canyons and slopes. Most reefs start at 5 metres and slope away from the islands making them ideal for everyone. There are deeper sites for the more experienced divers, which are famous for 100% coral.
Big Bubble dive all the sites around the Gili Islands (See DIVE SITE MAP). Typical sightings include Loggerhead and Hawk’s Bill Turtles, sometimes in huge numbers, White-Tip and Black-Tip Reef Sharks, Stingrays, Cuttlefish, Lionfish, Snappers, Tunas, Barracuda, Moray Eels, Sea Snakes, Octopus and much more. There are sightings of Manta Rays throughout the year, and you could see almost anything else – it just depends on how good your eyesight is!
