We had a fab time at Karma Kayak. Beautiful location, staff were really friendly and helpful, food was delicious (if portions a little small!) Karma Kayak was our first stop after a long flight, and we had decided to treat ourselves. (we're generally hostel/small b&b travellers) Karma Kayak was great value and the perfect place to relax on Gili T,...

Lovely location, friendly helpful staff. Excellent pool and lovely sunset viewed from beanbags on the beach. No problems taking a walk into town along the beach. Good variety of food from the Kayak kitchen, a very enjoyable stay!

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it! We were scepticle about Gili T as a stop on our travels and decided to base ourselves away from the main drag. The north of the island is lovely, its about a 20-30 minute walk into the main area or you can hire a bike (there is only one part that...

I stayed at Karma Kayak July 2012 for about 4 days and I could not have hoped for a better experience. When I first arrived on Gili Trawangan K.K. was booked so I stayed just down the road for a couple of days until they had availability. Even while I was a guest at another property, I ate all of...

Great spot on the beach away from the bussle (& touting) of the port area. Open honest service & advice. Special sunsets. Lots to see & do despite the kayak trips not being available. Snorkelling was a dissapointment, but I have been spoilt by pristine trips on the Great barrier reef & Tonga. Overall very good value.

We booked an initial 4 nights and returned at the end of our trip for another week. The managers, Sandra and Noel try very hard to run a happy and efficient place in a challenging environment. They were very honest about the construction noise nearby (there is construction everywhere on the island!). The staff is very well trained and work...

The place is a bit outside of all the bars and restaurants. If you prefer to be in the middle of it you need to walk 20 min to the centre, take a bike or horse car. We enjoyed that Karma Kayak is more quiet. The beach is really nice although due to the corals it is a bit difficult...

Upon arrival we were brought to this relax and quiet and beatiful spot on Gili Trawangan. Very friendly personnel as well the people running the place (Dutch).
