Other things to note
At Kupu Kupu we have made a conscious effort to make the cottages as ECO friendly and sustainable as possible in order to reduce our impact on the island's fragile eco system. The cottages themselves have been "up-cycled," renovated from already existing structures, and using recycled building materials wherever possible. We put a large emphasis on not only our our garden, but in our neighbor's gardens and streets as well.
Water is precious on the island, so we try to collect rain water and use recycled water in the garden while our shower water uses a desalination system. The drinking water gallons we provide in the rooms, are not only convenient and economical for you, but by refilling your water bottle, you get a chance to help reduce plastic waste on the island. Woohoo!
We are pretty laid back here on "Freedom island," however we do ask you to respect a few simple house rules:
- No Smoking indoors - but outside is cool with us.
- Be conservative with water usage.
- Switch off the AC and lights when heading out(URL HIDDEN)Check out is by 10:00 AM and check in at 12:00 PM
(but we can keep your bags for you if you wish to further explore the island outside of these times.)
- Finally, you are strictly required by us to ... ENJOY YOUR ISLAND HOLIDAY!
Should you have any more questions about staying with us, please don't hesitate to ask. We hope you enjoy your stay at Kupu Kupu Cottages on Gili Trawangan!
We are Jen and Matt, from Alaska and Reunion Island, and somehow we met halfway between the two in Indonesia, where we have made our home for the past decade. We still live to travel, Indonesia & Japan but also destinations farther abroad. We love it here and hope that you will enjoy this country as much as we do!
