Nice property. Stayed here several times. This is not the place if you want an active environment. Small pool and quiet surroundings. Rooms are basic ( no TV). Food is excellent. Walk to Airport and Store bay beach.

Kariwak village is the only place I stay when I am in Tobago. This is my fifth trip and I cant see myself staying anywhere else. I stayed in Tropikist once and it was the worse. Kariwak's garden is always relaxing and I love waking up to the sound of the birds. I love that the waterfall/pool doesn't dry out... More

Such a natural environment- the breakfast and restaurant area are in all in bamboo and the little shed houses all in wood. Staff is very friendly and Kariwak has placed bird nectars everywhere so birds are always visiting. The food is simply amazing. You can pretty much order anything and it will be delicious.They even have their own cookery book.... More

After initial communication difficulties, with emails and phone calls, we just had to trust that our room was booked; a written confirmation would have been appreciated especially as we had given our payment details. By staying only one night, as we were out to Trinidad early next morning, we were unable to fully take up all that was on offer.... More

I will never return to kariwak nor will I recommend it to my family and friends. Apart from the outdated rooms (no tv, kettle, mini refrigerator), absolutely no toiletries ( I had to ask by the front desk, I will not describe the facial expressions I received for asking for soap and toilet paper) this place reeks of discrimination and...

This was recommended by a local friend. We spent a week at the Kariwak and had the most amazing stay - lovely comfortable cabins set in the beautiful gardens complete with hummingbirds and tai chi/yoga to start the day. I was worried it was too near the air strip, but was very quiet (its also set back from the main... More

Have stayed at the Kariwak and it is the best in Tobago. The service is excellent and the food superb. Stayed in one of the garden rooms this time and was able to relax in a hammock and use the out door jacussi which was wonderful in February for someone coming from UK. Swimming pool also great. Kariwak produce the... More

Tipped off by a friend, I first wasn't enthusiastic due to the proximity of the airport. No worry, no disturbance. This is a great place, with ever so caring staff, where everybody wanted us to feel pampered. The restaurant serves great food with a Carribbean/International mix. The veggies and herbs are grown on the premises. We lived close to the... More

Tobago is by far the nicest Caribbean we've visited, with just 3 or 4 larger resorts. Kariwak is a small hotel, with great restaurant, just 200m from the airport, but is a quiet garden oasis. Walk out of its lane, and you're in the friendly hustle and bustle of local life. And, unlike many islands, locals and tourists rub along... More
