Spending a couple of days, weeks…or even your life on Gili Air means a lot of different beautiful things to each individual. One of the most precious feelings that you get here is the deep connection to her grounds, nature, rhythm, beaches, local people and culture…And one of the most important things you can do on Gili is give back everything the island gives to you.
If you wonder how, it’s quite simple: respect her and take care of her… just as she takes care of you.
At Slow Villas and Spa, we constantly aspire to follow these values, in every action we take, every service we offer and every magical holiday experience that we help create. That’s why we are so proud and excited to announce the recent opening of our own little shopping corner: Slow Shop.
If you visit us you will discover our ecofriendly, locally produced, artistically inspired, lovely selection of unique gifts and memorabilia; clothes, accessories, artworks, sasak weaving, kitchenware, jewellery and swimwear. Each piece represents our ethos and spirit, each piece is created by people and brands that we connect with personally. Some items are truly indigenous crafts from Lombok and Bali, made by local people using traditional methods. Others are more glamorous one of a kind pieces made with love by apsiring young designers from around the world.
