We are a family owned/run business on the island of Gili Trawangan, located less than 2 hours from Bali. We accommodate travellers from all around the world, bring them together and make sure they have the best time possible. Having volunteers helps us bring everybody together and create a fun atmosphere. We have 3 bed dorm rooms, private doubles, private twins and family rooms. There are snorkeling trips daily plus sunset cruises twice a week. Gili Trawangan is the perfect place to meet new people, make friends and party. The team consists of 21 local workers and my self, the only foreign worker. The majority of the staff speak English
Types of help and learning opportunitiesHospitality/Tourism
Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
We offer free accommodation, food and some drinks from the bar in exchange for their help as well we offer to teach them about running a hostel and skills in customer service (if they are interested to learn of course) They will also learn about Indonesian culture and language especially Balinese and Lombok.
The expectations for volunteers is to provide a good customer experience by getting people signed up for tours and activities such as snorkeling trips, sunset tours and beer pong tournaments. We prefer the volunteers to be young 18-25 but would make exceptions for the right person. They will need to be happy, enthusiastic and easy to talk to, so speaking english is a must, bonus points if you speak other languages. You will be able to join snorkeling/sunset tours free of charge as often as you like.
