EDITO ISSUE No. 53 JULY 2018 Indonesia’s incredibly rich artistic tradition is an integral part of the hundreds of different local cultures and ethnic groups living on the archipelago. In this issue we celebrate this diversity, namely all the art forms that have contributed to Indonesia’s artistic identity. The love for art started in prehistoric times, continued through the Javanese kingdoms, the Sultanates and the waves of colonization, and is today celebrated into a diversity of art expressions. Stone murals and funerary monuments, impressive woven art, colourful paintings, intricate carvings and sculptures, gold and silverwork as well as handicrafts in natural materials and antique furniture are just some of the artwork Indonesia can be proud of. Last but not least, thanks to the collaborations between local authorities and local street artists, urban spaces in major cities have become open air museums, featuring murals and graffiti inspired by Bansky and other international street artists. Browse our pages and you will also discover three properties on the Gili islands that celebrate the beauty of this slice of paradise. Join the environmentally aware team at Anahata tropical private villas; immerse in a spiritual uplifting experience at Flowers & Fire Yoga and Meditation Garden and dive into Spain party vibe at Tapaz, where small snacks accompany every drink!

THE GILI ISLANDS

CULTURE & HISTORY

The three Gili Islands, composed of Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air, are located off the northwest coast of Lombok. In Sasak language, "gili" means "small island". There are more than 30 Gilis around Lombok, but Trawangan, Meno and Air are by far the most frequently visited. Because of their proximity to the equator, they have a tropical climate throughout the year with an average air temperature

Gililife 26

of 28C and water temperatures ranging from 26 to 29C. The rainy season runs from November to April and the dry season from May to October. The Gilis bathe in the Bali Sea at the convergence of the Indian and Pacific Oceans, and enjoy a drier micro-climate than the rest of Indonesia due in part to the fact that they are situated between two great volcanoes - Mount Rinjani on Lombok and Mount Agung on Bali. Like the majority of the Lombok community, the inhabitants of the Gili Islands are primarily Muslim and each island has a mosque(s) emitting sounds of live prayer five times daily. Bahasa Indonesia is the national language spoken which unites all of the country’s islands but Gili locals speak 'Sasak Gili Air' which is slightly different to 'Sasak Lombok'. About 200 years ago, fishermen from Sulawesi of Makassar, Bugis


and Mandar ethnicities arrived on the Gili Islands. They began to settle temporarily because of the abundance of fish in the sea and the presence of fresh water on Gili Air and at that time, sectioning off a bit of land with string was enough to claim it. These otherwise nomadic people began to settle in the Gilis and cultivate the land, planting peanuts, tapioca and corn whilst continuing their tradition of fishing. They sold and exchanged their produce in the markets of Lombok and also traded portions of their land for livestock, rice and other much needed items not native to the islands. Coconut palms are indigenous to the Gilis while mango, banana and papaya trees have been introduced over the years. The first Western traveller to set foot on the Gili Islands came in 1984 to Gili Air. By the mid 1990’s Bali had gained international recognition as a travel destination and the Gilis began to be known as an off-the-beatentrack paradise escape. Today, the Gili Islands are flourishing and are attracting all types of visitors from every corner of the globe. Over time, the people of the Gili Islands have adapted to a multitude of changes and cultural immersions but have managed to maintain their cultural identity. Historically the people here have seen their days of hardship when during WWII, Lombok and the Gili Islands were occupied by Japanese forces. The islands were used to contain prisoners of war and the locals endured forced labour. A hill situated on the south of Trawangan was used as a lookout post and today remnants of the bunker still remain. Trawangan derived it's name from the Indonesian word "terowongan" meaning "tunnels" of which a network were dug by the occupying forces. The holes have since been filled in.

ETIQUETTE TIPS FOR YOUR VISIT TO THE GILI ISLANDS • Always use your right hand when you give/ take/ eat/ touch • • Never point at something with your foot • • When you are a guest, wait until you are invited to sit down • • Remove your shoes before entering a house, shop or any other place • • Never get angry, always try to solve problems with a smile • • The Gili islands are Muslim, and it is sometimes inappropriate to walk around in a state of undress, going topless can be translated as a lack of respect •

DESTINATION GILI TRAWANGAN

THE UNFORGETTABLE ISLAND OF FASHION & FUN

TRAWANGAN When you hear about Gili T you probably also hear the words "party island" yeah? Thought we should just address that straight away! Gili T gained this title because it is the largest of the three northern Gili Islands with the most development, hence it offers the greatest abundance of everything - including nightlife. There are fantastic parties every night of the week that attract large crowds of people from all different walks of life and every corner of the globe. Nightly features start with a sizzling local food market and advance into live music, beach parties and DJ's. There's also the option of watching movies screened

Gililife 28

at an open air beach "theatre." The rumoured growth of Trawangan from a backpacker island into something of a glam island is supported by the unveiling of new upscale boutiques, restaurants, resorts, spas, and now a heli-pad, however, it remains a hub of charm for a wide spectrum of travellers. It's an iconic island of variety with numerous options for every budget/lifestyle for eating, sleeping (backpacker dorms to luxury villas), entertainment and activities. Gili T has extraordinarily beautiful beaches and shimmering ocean waters of crystal-clear visibility for diving and snorkelling. This island boasts some of the finest coral gardens and the

widest range of dive centers with the best socializing opportunities. Although it is predominately known as a party island, Gili T has much more to it and venturing away from the densely developed east coast, you can find a plethora of vacant beaches. Renting a bicycle is a great way to see the island, bearing in mind there are some sandy patches! Seeing how life works here can be very eye-opening: it's not an escape from reality- just a slightly different one but understandably surreal nonetheless! There are several conservation organizations based here including Gili Eco Trust (GET) and The Gili Shark Foundation- ask around (try dive centers) about how you can get involved! As you may know - there is no motorized transport in the Gilis and what a soothing break that can be! Surfing is popular off the south and it's not unwise to speak to locals about the break. For a supreme viewpoint walk up the hill on the south that was previously used as a lookout during WW II.

THE SPIRITUAL & RELAXING ISLAND OF LOVE

MENO Set between Gili Air and Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno arguably offers the finest beaches of all the Gili Islands. The sands are white and soft beneath your feet and you can relax on vacant stretches of beach lined with coconut trees. Its waters are teeming with life and it is very common to spot a turtle whilst snorkelling. This island is a treasure of local lifestyle, where time seems Gililife 30

to bend and life seems to slow down. Out of the three Gili’s, Gili Meno is the least developed island, where you can completely relax amongst abundant nature and create your own tropical holiday adapted to your needs. Explore its peaceful paths by pushbike or on foot; enjoy the green and blue panorama while riding on a cidomo (horsecart) without being disturbed by big crowds or buildings; venture to the eerie remnants of an abandoned resort- where a popular wreck-dive site exists just offshore. Gili Meno offers a great selection of local and western restaurants, from small warungs to fancy beachfront terraces, you will have a wide choice of flavours against the same tropical and peaceful backdrop. You will meet

GILI MENO

interesting local artists and seasoned foreign travellers, and appreciate their smooth rhythm of life. A variety of accommodation options ensure a choice for all tastes and budgets; from eco-friendly star gazing platforms to luxury glamping tents, Gili Meno offers secluded properties as well as luxury resorts, and a lot of activities. Small dedicated dive centres, natureinspired yoga schools and water sport centres are just some of the ways you can fill your time between a swim with the turtles or a tropical cocktail.

Here you can take it fast or slow and enjoy an abundance of water sports from diving to surfing to kiteboarding and land activities such as yoga and cycling. In the evenings you also have the option of watching movies screened on the beach (weather permitting). Gili Air has pristine beaches and clear turquoise waters Gililife 32

gili AIR that soothe and revive. It is the most locally populated island with 1500 residents and it's not hard to see a special pride amongst the locals for the awe that their land inspires. There is the biggest concentration of bars and restaurants on the east of Air where you can take in views of lush green Lombok and the heights of Mt. Rinjani. Venture to the northwest and you will find yourself on empty sands gazing at the majestic Agung volcano of Bali. For sunsets be sure to be on the north/west side of the island. Happiness is infectious on this island and it's friendly inhabitants will never miss a chance to make you smile. Gili Air has a great selection of restaurants including homemade

AN ABUNDANCE OF NATURAL BEAUTY AND TRADITIONAL LIVING

LOMBOK With its largely unspoiled natural environment, vivid, diverse traditional culture and increasing infrastructure, Lombok island is an interesting compromise between touristic Bali and wild Sumbawa. Jagged coasts and sheltered bays, white-sanded empty beaches and lush green hills lined by rice paddies overlooked by majestic Mount Rinjani characterise Lombok’s natural landscape, while in traditional villages a diversity of practices coexist. The island is dotted with mosques, symbols of Islam, the

Gililife 36

most practiced religion, but there are some important Hindu temples scattered in the West, heritage of the Hindu tradition. Sasak people, Lombok’s indigenous people, practice a syncretic form of Islam (wetu telu), which blends Hindu-Buddhist influences, Sunni Islam, animism and ancestral worship. Authentic Sasak villages offer a valuable insight into the island’s traditional culture, famous for the turun temurun, Capital city Mataram is a busy town with colourful markets and the gate to Senggigi’s stunning bays in the North and Mt Rinjani’s green slopes to the East. In the South, world-class surf breaks, a multitude of pristine beaches and

gentle hills are an open invitation to explore the surroundings at one’s pace and enjoy the tropical vibe. The East offers a complete different scenery; from waterfalls, rainforests and hills carpeted with rice paddies, the surroundings of Mount Rinjani provide a myriad of hike options, from easy walks to very challenging treks in a beautiful panoramic landscape. In the South-West, facing Lembar harbour and Sekotong, are the less known Gili’s (meaning “small island”), where snorkeling in the lively reef and chilling on the empty beaches are the few tourists’ main activity. With its cultural and environmental diversity, Lombok is the ideal destination to discover something new everyday.

Gililife 38

Expect to swim with elegant white and black-tip sharks and friendly turtles, observe extravagant cephalopods and ghost pipe-fish hidden in plain sight and explore wrecks turned into the home of colourful fish schools! Home to over 3,500 marine species including a variety of small sea creatures, the Gilis are also becoming a soughtafter destination for muck diving.

There are a multitude of centres that can plan just the right dive for you and the Gili Islands Dive Association ensures high diving standards and safe diving practices are applied at all times. Every diver contributes to a “reef tax�, which is included in the cost of their first dive and goes to support the NGO Gili Eco Trust, a conservation organisation who implements projects such as coral reef restoration biorocks.

REMORA

Remora is a type of suckerfish belonging to the Echeneidae family. It is famous for the habit to stick to another organism to move across the ocean. Remoras do not have a swimming bladder and their dorsal fin is modified to a sucking organ that acts like a suction disc. They mainly attach to sharks, turtles and dolphins, but sometimes also to small boats. They typically feed on their hosts’ parasites or food leftovers. In exchange for “a lift”, remoras remove

Gililife 40

bacteria, dead skin and unwanted organisms from their hosts! Remoras can grow up to 90cm long and they start attaching to other organisms after about a year from hatching, when they are about 3cm long and their suction disc is developed. Did you know... The word “remora” means “delay” In Latin ; in fact, in ancient times remoras were believed to cause a ship to stop or delay its journey.

ACTIVITIES

TURTLES GUARANTEED!! PLUS Beautiful corals and all kinds of fish!

SNORKELLING Snorkelling is a good way to freely explore the waters around the Gili islands. Let yourself drift with the current whilst being careful because sometimes it can be very strong. You can easily rent the mask, snorkel and fins on all the Gili islands. Another option is taking part in a snorkelling trip – a day out on a boat.

Gililife 42

Many local agencies offer this service and you can book this trip on site or at your hotel. You leave in the morning around 9am for a full circuit of the Gilis, you stop for lunch and come back at about 4pm. Regardless of the island where you depart from, the boats will tour the most famous spots of the three islands, where marine life is abundant. Expect to see parrotfish and butterfly fish, dense schools of revallies as well as some species of soft corals. Snake eels are also a common sight and you will most probably see giant turtles swimming along your side.

ACTIVITIES

A BREATH-TAKING EXPERIENCE

FREEDIVING

Learn to dive deeper on just one breath, without any equipment except your fins and mask ! Freediving is the most natural and quiet way to explore and get closer to animals underwater and is a discipline that teaches you to relax and be at ease with yourself. The best way to learn is from a professional and in the Gili islands many dive centres are specialised in freediving and offer courses and dives for all levels, in different sites and ensuring safety first at all times. Freediving teaches us about the connection between our body and mind, patience, perceived limitations and challenging our self-imposed boundaries. What we learn in the water can also be applied to our daily lives on dry land. There are many different aspects to apnea, including underwater hockey, underwater rugby, spearfishing etc. You just need to find your favourite way of being underwater.

YOGA

GET CONNECTED

It's no wonder that the Gilis are becoming a popular yoga destination. Stunning ocean views, colourful striped skies profiling Mount Rinjani and Mount Agung at sunrise and sunset and the natural setting make the Gilis an inspiring place to practice. Many remarkable yoga schools scattered around the three islands offer classes that cater for the tastes of picky yogis as well as to open-minded visitors who want to try yoga for the first time.

Ubud is Indonesia’s most famous yoga destination, but more and more people come to practice in the Gilis, where yoga classes can be taken in bamboo structures surrounded by peaceful gardens, rooftop terraces where you can meditate as the sun appears on the horizon, or breezy shalas on the beach. For a closer contact with the water element, you can even try yoga on a stand-up paddleboard. Worst-case scenario you will have a refreshing swim! 45 Gililife


ACTIVITIES

MORE GILI ISLAND

WATERSPORTS The Gili islands offer endless possibilities to water lovers beside diving and snorkelling. Enquire at one of the many watersport centres for a variety of activities on all the three islands. You can take a Glass-Bottom Boat tour to see the underwater world

Gililife 46

without adventuring into the ocean. Otherwise, you can rent a Kayak and explore the coastline at your own pace or opt for a Stand-Up Paddle Board, a great way to approach the water and test your balancing skills. On Gili Air and Gili Trawangan there are a few nice Surf spots which are

worth a “dawnie�, you just need to be aware of currents and tides and a bit experienced. Subwing is the ultimate watersport that allows you to glide in the water pulled by a boat at slow speed, while Parasailing will bring you to new heights to then safely land in the water! Have fun!


ACTIVITIES

TREAT YOURSELF

SPA Gililife 48

There is no better way to relax after a day of diving and snorkelling or cruising around the Gilis than receiving a good massage. Many spas in the three islands offer different types of massages as well as all kinds of beauty treatments. If you like it strong, we suggest to try traditional Sasak or Balinese massage, while for a more relaxing treatment, probably an Ayurvedic massage is the best option. Pedicure and manicure for both men and women or different waxing techniques are available; earcandles is a relaxing and unique way to have your ears cleaned and foot reflexology an excellent antidote to feet tired of walking around the islands. You can choose to receive your treatment in an oceanview spa or in the quietness of a bamboo breezy terrace; also check out the spas of the best hotels on the islands, as they offers quality treatments at a good price.


MORE FUN ONLAND

OTHER ACTIVITIES There are uncountable activities you can enjoy on land in all three islands. You can decide to learn how to cook delicious dishes from Indonesian cuisine or how to make jewellery, and even take part in an art class! You may find yourself exploring WWII bunker remnants in Trawangan or riding a horse at sunset, sweating in the gym or dancing to the rhythm of salsa! Try capoeira, samba, or explore different styles of yoga such as fly-high, sunset meditation, aerial silk or acroyoga! When night falls, go for a movie on the beach or squeeze your brain and join a quiz night. If you want to mingle with the locals, join them for a football or beachball match on the beach or challenge them in a badminton game! Check the latest updates at one of the local agencies or ask at the reception of your hotel.

ART Indonesia is a treasure-chest of art forms. With over 17,000 islands, art is the expression of the archipelago’s hundreds of tribal cultures and the result of centuries of trade, exchanges and colonial presence. The diversity of ethnic groups is reflected in the varied linguistic, religious and costume traditions co-existing within the country and art is no exception. Handicrafts, textiles, ceremonial items as well as forms of theatre and traditional dances exalt the influence of traditional cultures in daily life. At the same time, Indonesia maintains a very vivid contemporary art scene; many contemporary local artists are known at an international level and the country is a hot destination for worldwide artists and designers, who come here to get inspiration. Across the country, different forms of ancient animist cults are still worshipped, bringing with them prehistoric influences in architectural elements and handicraft. We find impressive funerary monuments and inscribed massive stones, headdresses made of animals’ feathers and bones and carefully carved tribal jewelry. Textiles are another artwork Indonesians are rightly Gililife 52

proud of. Textile designs takes inspiration from various sources, and we find Chinese and Islamic symbols as well as patterns from the Dutch and Portuguese tradition. We recognise Hindu and Buddhist elements in monuments, sculptures and bas-reliefs in archaeological sites such as Borobudur as well as in paintings and craftwork in touristic areas such as Bali. Jakarta’s museums are guardians of the country’s historical milestones, while in Yogyakarta, where the Sultan’s family has always supported different art forms, the art scene is today rich and diverse. Jakarta and Yogyakarta are also connected to the international contemporary art scene, showcasing a variety of exhibitions, theatre plays and dance shows at all levels and for all tastes. Street art and graffiti culture are a big part of Indonesia’s current art scene, and murals decorate many cities, often on legal grounds. Art is in the Indonesian blood and all movement, action and object will remind you of the diverse artistic soul of this beautiful country!

ART

Ceramics & Pottery Ceramics is a very important sector for the Indonesian economy, with a production of 350 million square metres in 2016 only. The strong Chinese influence on ceramics can be seen in the beautiful traditional vessels and plates, as well as in some ceramic jewelry production. Lombok pottery (turun temerun) is a beautiful example of traditional crafts passed over from one generation to the next.

Traditional puppets

Textile/woven art Amazing range of cotton and silk sarongs, woven ikat and carpets, stamped batik, embroidered fabrics with patterns and motifs influenced by the Chinese, Indian and Islamic traditions as well as by Dutch symbolism and traditionally made in almost all the big islands.

Handicrafts in natural fibers/materials Rattan, bamboo and alang-alang are just some of the natural materials used to create lovely handicraft for ceremonies and to sell as souvenirs. From woven banana-leaf items designated to religious rituals to handy rattan basket and practical bamboo kitchenware, natural fibers are an eco-friendly material that has been used for centuries to make a range of artwork and objects for daily use. Gililife 54

(leather/shadow & wood Wayang) Representing characters of the Hindu epic Ramayana, used in traditional theatre art for centuries. Intricate leather motifs and three-dimensional wooden figures representing good and evil forces are today heritage of an ancient theatre tradition and popular tourists’ souvenirs.


Shells & Jewelry People have always been attracted by the beauty of precious shells, often using them as a currency and to make quality jewelry. Mostly associated with tribal art of Timor, West Papua and Moluccas, shells are also used to produce fine kitchenware for home interiors in Bali and Jakarta. Pearls and gemstones are used to produce beautiful silver and gold jewelry, including antique bracelets and rings with diamonds, opal and amethyst among other precious stones.

Paintings & Calligraphy We find beautiful paintings in traditional textiles as well as in Balinese ancient and contemporary traditions and romantic naturalistic work from the XIX century. The Islamic influence on calligraphy has produced a variety of beautifully decorated ceramics, jewelry and carpets.

Vernacular architecture

Stone carvings Stone carvings in Borobudur are some of the most famous, although Indonesia’s carving tradition is very ancient and representative of a variety of ethnic groups. Stone carvings can be found on a number of inscriptions, bas-relief and beautiful statues in a variety of forms and uses across the whole country. Stone statues produced in Bali are a very popular garden decoration element.

Indonesian vernacular architecture features one of the world’s largest variety in terms of shape, size and use of materials. From the Dayak river longhouses to the Batak rumah adat (traditional houses) and the Manggarai drum houses, traditional buildings are an infinite source of artistic inspiration featuring a large use of natural materials and ancient yet innovative building techniques.

Wooden carvings Woodwork includes furniture-making, for which Indonesia is worldwide famous, especially as far as antique colonial furnishing is concerned. Wooden carvings range from sculptures representing Hindu gods and demons to beautiful patterns on ancient inscriptions. Javanese carved panels are a sought-after interior design element and primitive tribal masks are still used in traditional ceremonies, especially in the east of the country. 55 Gililife

Any street artist would claim street art has always existed. In Indonesia, from prehistoric murals on funerary monuments, graffiti of independent artists until tags on public toilets, this artistic expression has developed into a very rich street art scene that ranges between wall tagging and font writing to government supported murals, screen printing and visual advertising. The influence of fine arts, traditional textiles motifs and patterns as well as of religious symbolism in paintings and traditional carving can be felt in today’s street art, which is increasingly been exposed in art galleries. More and more artists have claimed their identity to government agencies and Ngos, who support artistic works in small and large events, from concerts to big

urban regeneration programs. Mainly concentrated in the big cities in Java, the street art scene includes collectives of local artists who collaborate with the authorities to spread art on the walls of the country. This generation of artists aims at being recognised as proper artists while maintaining their passion for popular, grass-root urban art. An example is Kei island in the Molukas, where some Indonesian artists were called by the local government to paint some areas as part of a tourism development project. Yogyakarta is currently the biggest street art scene in the country, home of many of independent art collective besides Jakarta, Bandung, Malang and Surabaya. In East Indonesia, street art remains traditional, attached to ancestral tribal influences and practices.

You can find beautiful examples of Indonesian street art in many cities in Java such as Yogyakarta, Jakarta, Bangung and even Malang and Bogor. Just walk around the cities with your eyes open and don’t hesitate to visit art spaces and collectives! It is free of charge! 59 Gililife


ART Meet Hardi... Originally from Sulawesi, Hardi is an artist who now lives in Gili Air, where he runs K69, a restaurant and art space located on the north side of the island. His experience as an artists spans from artistic residences in Europe to exhibitions in Jakarta, art social programs and environmental classes in disadvantaged communities in Bali and Lombok, art spaces in Yogyakarta and artistic cafes in Jakarta. In this short interview, we understand what Gili Life means for him as an artist! What is art for you? Part of life on the Universe What is life for you? Part of art on the Universe What does living in the Gili’s islands mean for you? Of the many places I have lived and felt in Indonesia, the Gili’s islands are certainly the place that I feel more multicultural in terms of artistic expression, as long as we are respectful. In other main islands like Java and Bali the art scene is rich and diverse, especially the movement of independent art collectives, though it is often coordinated by government programs or big art collectives and galleries. It is common to have misunderstandings with local organisations or of groups who supposedly act in the name of society. In the Gili’s, everyone can make art with any topic and there will not be much fuss about it. The constant international exchange and laid-back local culture allow for mutual exchange and artistic growth. I feel teachers are open to educational programs and many local organisations are working for the same goals of integration and environmental awareness.

FLOWERS AND FIRE YOGA GARDEN AND MEDITATION CENTRE GILI AIR When Patanjali put together the 195 aphorisms that compose the wellknown Yoga Sutras, his intention was supposedly to create threads (sutra) of thoughts to transmit some of the old teachings of the Vedas, namely Hinduism’s oldest scriptures. The choice of the “sutra”, or short phrase, was taken to express large amount of knowledge in a condensed form and therefore overcome the limits of oral transmission. This is how fundamental concepts analysing human behaviour and psychological patterns were passed on generation after generation. The result is a series of teachings that are currently considered the basis of yoga philosophy, namely the process of finding stillness in the mind and perceiving objects as they truly are, regardless of human judgement, perception or the distractions of the human mind. This approach lists a

series of fundamental guiding principles that help elevate human beings to a patient, detached and content approach to life, allowing us to connect to the ever-shining light of awareness that lies within each one of us. As most of those who have tried know very well, it is not easy to constantly keep the focus on our centre, also known as purusa (light of awareness), as the path to enlightenment is full of obstacles and moments of self-doubt. Surrounding yourself with positive energies (people, places, opportunities) contributes to this process, as well as a regular practice of the philosophical and physical principles of Yoga. With its calm yet lively energy and the beautiful souls living in this space, Flowers & Fire in Gili Air will bring your practice to the next level, supporting in your personal quest for light. 65 Gililife


GILI ZOOM Flowers & Fire is a yoga studio located in the heart of Gili Air known for its diverse offerings of classes and the professional approach to yoga philosophy and practices. Opened in May 2018, Flowers & Fire is the latest Yoga addition on the island, filling the need for advanced practice and in-depth study of yoga. From introduction to meditation to traditional Ashtanga classes, the studio also hosts Kirtan sessions and dedicated classes combining different limbs of yoga. Almost entirely built in natural materials, the studio has two spacious yoga shalas, both featuring a welcoming wooden floor and high ceilings with natural air-flow, ideal for morning and afternoon practice.

Three Lumbung-style bungalows and two private rooms equipped with AC and a fridge provide spaces for those who want to take in the yoga experience fully while living in the same place where they practice. The accommodation options also respond to the future needs of the studio, which aims to become a retreat venue. “Beside the yoga, I wanted to create a space where people can get together and just chill, hang out and feel at home.” Emily, the owner, said. “Flowers & Fire is a spot for grounding, where you can get a home-cooked meal while chatting with friends and feel spiritually connected.” she added.


Yoga & More “At Flowers & Fire we want to create a safe zone to cultivate an awareness of sensations through movement, be a supportive tool to convey transcendence and provide a limitless space to escape everyday life, where people can move with curiosity and find bliss in dynamic motion.” Emily said. “From drop-in classes to workshops and retreats, the purpose is to expand people’s spiritual journey and unlock the energy of the body, so that we can all implement the principles of non-attachment, unanimity and other of the limbs of yoga as transmitted by Patanjali Sutras” Emily added.

TAPAZ FEEL THE SPANISH VIBE! GILI TRAWANGAN When Spaniards invite you to “Tapear” with them you don’t have to worry, but simply join the fun: you will soon have a big glass of wine in your hands and you’ll be licking your fingers as you taste one “tapas” after the next! In fact, “Tapear” refers to the typical Spanish activity of going from bar to bar for drinks and small bites, which are known as “tapas”. The origin of this word is not certain, but legends say that in Spanish taverns drinks have been accompanied with something to eat on the side since the times of King Alfonso X The Wise (11th century). The word “tapas” does not refer to specific food, but simply to the size of the

portion, which is typically smaller than an ordinary serving (known as ración). Tapas includes cold and hot dishes, vegetarian and meat or fish options and a great diversity of culinary traditions, ranging across all of Spain. Due to Spain’s geographical position, most traditional tapas feature ingredients such as olives and olive oil, garlic, and Mediterranean delicacies such as free range pork or local seafood products. You don’t need to be in Spain to dive into the cozy and friendly atmosphere of a Spanish Tapas Bar, but simply venture to Gili Trawangan main strip and get carried away by the energy at Tapaz, the one and only Tapas Bar in the Gili Islands!

69 Gililife


GILI ZOOM No wonder one is captivated by Tapaz, Trawangan’s colourful tapas bar. This small yet hectic cafe features a unique interior design, able to evoke the warmth of a Mediterranean al fresco restaurant as well as of an intimate Moroccan riad (traditional house). The geometric patterns of the ceramic tiled floor blend with the Moroccan lanterns and the Spanishthemed murals, immediately transporting you to a laid-back afternoon during summer in Spain. Open from 11am to 11pm, Tapaz gets busier in the evenings, when people from all over the world gather for a drink and especially to indulge in the selection of small bites of Tapaz menu. “People come

Gililife 70

here for the food and the music.” Dea, the manager, said. “The tables’ set up is made on purpose to make people mingle and interact; it’s easy to make new friends at Tapaz!” she added with a smile. The bar concept has gone beyond Spanish tapas culinary traditions to fully embrace the pleasure of enjoying a snack while having a drink. From the original Spanish tortilla to the Italian bruschetta and the Indonesian perkedel (potato croquette), the menu includes small bites delicacies from across the world, paying tribute to street food and typical dishes of a variety of cultures. Don’t know where to start? Get a drink and receive a free tapas! The rest will come!


Let’s dance Beside the selection of small bites, Tapaz Bar is known for the convivial atmosphere, which contributes to the informal vibe of the place. You will easily find yourself making friends with complete strangers and move your hips to live music as you taste small plate after small plate. Feel the Spanish/Reggae vibe on Mondays, dance to Pop Rock on Wednesday and let yourself go to Spanish Pop Rock and an active Tapaz night on Friday! Que rico! Tapaz has a drink for any taste. Want to feel the Spanish vibe? Explore the jug menu and discover the Tapaz white or red sangria or start in style and go for the wine! If you feel in need for a detox, why not select one of the healthy fresh juices? If you like beer, there is no better place to go as here you will find the whole Stark collection, the best locally drafted beers. Last but not least, Tapaz serves a wide range of tropical cocktails, so get a Bloody Mary and start your tapas binge! You cannot leave without tasting the classic Tortilla de Patatas, better if accompanied by a tasty Montadito de Salmon. Don’t forget you’re in Indonesia, so try the famous Perkedel! Prefer it a bit more classy? Then the Tuna Tartare is the perfect choice!

ANAHATA TROPICAL PRIVATE VILLAS AN ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS TROPICAL HEART GILI AIR Considering the environmental impact of our holidays has become an important aspect of travelling that we cannot longer ignore. The choice of the destination, the property and our daily habits when travelling can make a difference in the big picture of today’s mass tourism trends. We would all love to be able to enjoy a pristine unspoiled environment and refusing straws and plastic bags, bringing your own carrier bag and own bottle are some of the simple steps you can take to limit your environmental impact. Indeed, the consequences of the indiscriminate use of plastic are such that it is essential to reduce, recycle and reuse whenever possible in order to alleviate the burden of local disposal systems which, when existing, are overloaded with leftovers from redundant packagings and

disposable items. This is even more visible in small islands like the Gili’s, where all the trash produced need to be transported to Lombok or to Bali for proper disposal. Choosing a hotel that respects and implements simple standards of environmental sustainability is another aspect you should consider if you care for the environment. Anahata in Gili Air is an ecoconscious business proud to place environmental care as a priority. “There is still a long way to sufficiently protect the environment in the Gili’s, but each one of us can start by taking small steps. We have wonderful conditions on this small island to share useful information about the importance of environmental protection to our team. We can all contribute to preserve this wonderful island." the two lady owners said. 73 Gililife


GILI ZOOM Anahata refers to the Sanskrit term for Heart, and it is often used to refer to the heart centre of energy, or chakra, that we all have at the height of our sternum, in the centre of our chest. Anahata is a compound of three private tropical villas that was uniquely designed to combine the love for the island and for natural materials as well as to transmit a feeling of holidays and relaxation. The design reflects Sasak traditional vernacular architecture, featuring Lumbung-shaped villas and the typical soft, simple and round shape. Anahata features large lumbungs with private plunge pool built in natural materials, equipped with all modern amenities and offering high levels of privacy, away from indiscreet eyes. The

Gililife 74

beautiful garden with a view on the coconut plantations is the ideal space where to enjoy your tropical privacy and the well curated light and interior design ensure a comfortable holiday in style. Great attention is given to the environment and all staff has been the first team to obtain a certificate of attendance of the PlasticFreeParadise Training. This education project ran by Gili Shark Conservation introduces the problem of plastic pollution and provides some solutions on how to keep our beautiful island green & clean.
