The 6th of October 2019, a tragic fire took place at Utopia Homestay, Gili Air. In the blink of an eye, two bungalows burned down to the ground, and a third one lost the roof.
After fighting 5 meters tall flames for 2 hours, the Gili Air Community finally managed to get the fire under control and stop the flames from causing any more harm. Expats and families lost their homes, and Murtini, Pak Saban & Sibenk are all left with the ashes of the Utopia Bungalows.
As a Gili Community, it’s our wish to support and help, when tragic events happen, and when the local people are in need of help. We are sad to see the wonderful Utopia Homestay suffer from this horrible fire, and we therefore wish to help them rebuild what was lost.
