We arrived very late at night due to plane delays, and in the dark did not realize we were within walking distance to the Kariwak. I was surprised at quite a few things. The first thing was the bathroom. It is quite small, and no shampoo, conditioner, or lotion was provided. The second thing is the location of the pool.... More

My wife and I made our annual "pilgrimage" to Kariwak as part of our annual winter vacation. We spent three nights which means that we were able to enjoy three dinners and three breakfasts as we usually have the "meal" plan. As usual, the food prepared by Cynthia and her staff is wonderful. The staff and overall level of service... More

We have just returned from a two week holiday staying at Kariwak. We had a really wonderful time at this paradise. The atmosphere is wonderful. Cynthia and the staff are all warmhearted people, attentive, caring, friendly, professional and fun! The food is excellent; tasty and healthy. What made it for me especially was the amazing yoga and qigong classes. The... More

Terrible experience at this place last week. I travelled to Tobago and returned to my room one day to find my personal items had been sorted by the hotel without my permission and my luggage packed without any reason or apology. The hotel claimed the particular room was booked but that is not borne out by the facts and the... More

We stayed at The Kariwak for a week just before Christmas 2013. It was our fourth visit in fifteen years. We can't think why we haven't been more often. Alan and Cynthia have created a small Eden, the most serene place we know. The gardens are beautiful, the food is ultra fresh and delicious. All the Kariwak team are delightful.... More

Kariwak is surprisingly peaceful despite its close proximity the small airport at Crown Point, there are only a couple of small jets a day and the engine noise is not intrusive. Due to its garden setting, the bird life is abundant - a bit too much so at times. The little black and yellow bananaquits are very inquisitive and think... More

This is a wonderful laid back place to stay in a great location. There are cabins that surround the pool area or you can stay in the beautiful gardens where there are hammocks to recline in or take a dip in the whirlpool with a waterfall. You can indulge in all kinds of activities including tai chi or yoga at... More

Allow me to take the opportunity to apologise for your unusual experience and thank you for your review. We are unable to say who would have advised on the dress code, as we have no stated policy, even though we do encourage elegantly casual dress for dinner and discourage gentlemen in sleeveless t-shirts and vests. Regarding the timing of dinner,... More

Great service is at times difficult to encounter, but at Kariwak, you will be guaranteed of exceptional service with a smile from all the staff members. Store Bay is a 5 minute walk from the village. The cuisine is definitely superb.
