Fast boat or flight?

Depends on your preference and location.
Fast boat saves time than flight. It’s normally about 30 minutes boarding time at the harbor, then 1.5 hours crossing (via Padangbai harbor) or 2.5 hours crossing (via Sanur harbor). Total time for fast boat is around 2 – 3 hours. While domestic flight takes about 1 hour boarding (last check in time for domestic flight is 45 minutes prior depart time and since this is strict regulation you may make it as 1 hour), 30 minutes flight, 1.5 hours overland, 15-20 minutes crossing. Total time for transfer by flight is around 2.5 – 3 hours with many transport switching. A ticket for fast boat to Gili island includes pickup / drop off service between passenger’s hotel and harbor in Bali (for certain areas). It includes all transportations needed from very single step out of the hotel in Bali to Gili island / Lombok harbor.

However, if you have any issue with sea crossing in high speed (e.g. have sea sickness or motion sickness, heart attack, pregnant, etc) then taking a flight will be best for you.
