Getting to the Hotel from the Harbour
HORSE CART Boats from Bali or Lombok will dock at the Gili Trawangan Public Harbour which is approximately 1km from Hotel Ombak Sunset. From here we suggest to take a cidomo (horse-cart) which will cost about Rp.150,000 (just over US$10).
KINDNESS TO HORSES Each cidomo (horse cart & its horse) is owned by its driver, and therefore as a Hotel we are unable to regulate this service.
What we can do, however, is be responsible when taking a cidomo ride. We ask guests to be mindful of not overloading the cidomo – we would suggest getting two if traveling in a family or group or with lots of luggage.
At Hotel Ombak Sunset we are concerned for the welfare of the horses on the island: we do suggest to do a brief check of the horse to make sure it is healthy and happy before embarking on your journey. A good sign is no ribs showing, no head to the ground (indicating tiredness) and no open wounds or sores. The horse should look alert (head up) and lean but muscular.
We hope that each driver will be inspired to take better care of their horses, if they notice that guests are choosing the happier, healthier looking horses.
